It’s not everyday that you get to take pictures of a rock star. What a fun shoot with my father-in-law, Pastor Caspar McCloud. It was years ago that I saw him play at a concert; I never would have dreamed that his son would be my future husband. Funny how things work out! When we had our first “meet the parents” dinner, I couldn’t believe that this was Derek’s dad! If you ever get the chance to talk with Casper, he has the coolest English accent and is very intelligent. Casper is the author of several books that you can find on Amazon. He is also a portrait artist, recording artist, composer, equestrian, and an ordained minister leading The Upper Room in Roswell, Georgia. He does it all! He is also an accomplished musician and has recorded and performed with friends including Phil Keaggy and Peter Furler and the Newsboys. How cool is that!! I don’t know about you guys, but I think I have the coolest father-in-law. It’s amazing how God works and puts people into your life in the funnest ways! So excited to be apart of this rockstar family.
I am such a fan of taking pictures in peoples homes! Something about it is so personal and inviting. To get a glimpse of your life and freeze it in time for you to remember it years later. I remember specific things about each house we lived in and each season we spent there. How cool it will be to look back on these and remember things like, “remember those wood floors where our baby took his first steps” or “the window light that would shine through the nursery in the morning”. These sweet little details we forget about but they easily become apart of us and our story. Loved capturing this special time for the Jackson as their baby turns 6 months old!

It’s not everyday that you see a team of creatives come together and collaborate on a beautiful styled shoot. Earlier this year I was able to be apart of something beautiful and so creative! Working together with these Atlanta wedding professionals, we were able to capture new ideas, color palates and wedding trends we adore! Love these jewel tones and bold color choices. I think the design inspiration question for everyone was, “if you could showcase your dream wedding ideas, what would you do?”. We all have amazing clients with great ideas, but deep inside there is that crazy idea that you’ve been dying to try. Everyones inspiration and creativity was through the roof! Such an amazing team! Take a look and be inspired.

Thank you to all of the amazing wedding vendors who made this styled shoot an amazing success! It was beautiful and such a joy to be a part of.
Wade & Rochelle are getting married! I’ve grown up with Wade and he is such a great guy! To see him find his lady is the sweetest thing. We had such a great time at their engagement session at The Goat Farm. What a fun place! It was the perfect setting for both of their personalities. We seriously could have taken pictures there all day! I am so excited for them and their upcoming wedding; can’t wait!

Kessia and Nolan gathered their closest friends and family together for an intimate wedding ceremony in Roswell Georgia. It was beautiful! A lot of Kessia’s family was able to travel all the way from Brazil. You should always have a brazillian friend; they are a blast! Her family did all of the decorations and flowers themselves. It was gorgeous!
Their ceremony was so sweet! This lovely couple officiated and translated everything so that all of the guest could understand. They did an amazing job! It was such a deeply meaningful ceremony. It was such an honor to capture this amazing wedding celebration! Kessia and Nolan have the sweetest hearts for each other and for the Lord. They have truly blessed me with their friendship and kindness. So excited for them!
Time goes by so quickly! Only a few more weeks until baby Judah is here. So excited for my friends Ben & Bekah as their little family continues to grow. We captured some portraits for them before baby #2 arrives. We took these right before sunset; providing some beautiful light and making the greenery backgrounds pop!
What do you get when you combine the great outdoors with some artistic elements? This amazing photoshoot! Abbey and Jesse are the perfect combination of artistic and outdoorsy. Abbey has been helping me with some re-branding with my photography business and she mentioned that she and Jesse never really had a professional photo of them together. So, voila! Straight up looks like Urban Outfitters sponsored their photoshoot. Love it!
When Abby & Jesse first started “talking” they actually traded these books. One thing led to another and they are now official book traders. Cutest story ever!
And of course we had to try out some cool night-time photography and I think the results came out amazing!
It’s amazing how pictures can take you back in time. I never would have imagined that one day i’d be taking my brothers senior pictures! When I first had a camera and started learning more about photography, Elijah was always willing be be my “Guinea pig”. In college, I turned in a lot of photography assignments that included Elijah. My whole school was familiar with his face. It is incredible to see how pictures capture someone growing up and subtle changes that shape and mold a person into who they are today. Elijah is such a cool dude. He has mastered guitar and will play riffs that will make you think, “how did you come up with that!?”
So now he has graduated from highschool! Woohoo! On to the next adventure! And can I just say….as I have learned more about photography, I think he has also mastered the art of modeling for me, ha!
Engagement sessions are so much fun! It’s a great way to test out what your wedding photography will be like (without the pressure of a wedding timeline). Kinda like wedding photography training wheels? Well, you get the idea.So I was thrilled when Sarah & Eric were looking to do an engagement session before their wedding. They are both so down-to-earth and were so easy to photograph. And their brought Sarah’s dog! (which if you have seen my latest session this year….dogs seem to be the common thread). Love it! Westside provisions was the perfect location for this super sweet couple!
Can’t wait for their wedding; only a few more weeks! The countdown begins!
Some of you may or may not know…..but for 3ish years I have been able to photograph thousands (yes, thousands) of newborn babies at the hospital! They are so sweet and little! It really has grown my photography knowledge and given me tons of newborn experience. Unfortunately, I can’t share those pictures with you guys. (hospital rules). So when I get the chance to photograph newborns for my own business, I am so excited to share them! Loved meeting the Jones family and photographing their boys.
