the adams family

•November 15, 2010 • 7 Comments

I met Lori a few years ago when I went in for my 6 month dental check up. That’s because Lori was my new dental hygienist. And she was the cutest, most outgoingly sweet hygienist I’d ever met.

Then she had a baby. Kate.
And her gorgeous family grew by one more.

And luckily, they asked me to take some family and Kate only photos….

On what ended up being one of the most perfect days ever…

And I can’t stand how beautiful that little girl is. I mean, have you ever seen more beautiful eyes?
Yeah, I didn’t think so.

Caroline and Ryan photo session

•November 8, 2010 • 11 Comments

I don’t know about you, but I love capturing moments. Not sure, but I think that may be why I picked up my camera last year. Well, that and to photograph food and puppies. Sometimes you just capture moments that are so sweet, no words can do them justice.  Like moments shared between a father and daughter.

And then you get lucky and capture moments of sheer bliss.

And then you let kids do what they do best…be themselves. And that’s when you capture something special.

Sneak Peak: Caroline and Ryan

•November 7, 2010 • 2 Comments

This morning I was so lucky to get to photograph one of the most adorable families I’ve ever met. And photograph is what I did. I’m embarassed to say how many photos I actually took, but just know, it was a ton. Alright, not quite a ton, but in the family.
So, now I’m spending the afternoon doing some editing…a little post processing…and enjoying HGTV. But…I had to share a few shots from the session.

So stay tuned…tomorrow will be the full post.

ps. have I mentioned how much I love this “job”?
no? well, I do. like…a lot.

St. Simons

Last weekend the husband and I headed down to St. Simons Island for a quick getaway (and to watch our beloved Georgia Bulldogs get destroyed by Florida).  So yeah, our fabulous time was slightly marred by the fact that Georgia proved they have no defense. 

None.

But that’s okay I guess.  There’s always next year.  And the year after that… You get the point.

Anyway, having never been to SSI before, I was super excited to check out this quaint little beach town. We ended up staying at the St. Simons Inn, which just happened to be located directly across the street from this little beauty…

So while I may not have been lucky enough to see the sight of victory, I did get to see the sight of my very first lighthouse.
And she was quite impressive if I do say so.

Lydia – the shoot

•October 25, 2010 • 10 Comments

I mentioned the other day that Lydia always smiles. And after that morning’s misadventure, it was a very welcomed thing.

During our morning shoot together, we joked about her smile vs non-smile look. After editing the photos it dawned on me, Lydia was meant to smile. And although she looks gorgeous without one, there’s just something so sweet about that smiling face.

fun times: lydia {a sneak peak}

•October 23, 2010 • 6 Comments

Lydia and I have been friends for quite a few years. First we were co-workers and then we forged a bond through that environment to become friends.

Lydia is hysterical. She ALWAYS has a smile on her face. And that smile is infectious. And today I needed that smile. After the little parking lot fender bender I was in this morning, she went out of her way to sit and wait for Atlanta PD to show up.

Then she bought me a cup of coffee.

And even though I was totally shaken (knowing that my baby, my car was battered and bruised), she still managed to make me laugh.

And here’s a sneak peak of some photos from our shoot today.  Off to feed the doggies for now…but will be back with the rest of the fun times soon!

Ford’s Theatre, DC

•October 17, 2010 • 3 Comments

The husband and I just returned from a nice long weekend in DC. We were up there for one of his childhood friend’s wedding. The sightseeing was just the added bonus. We hit up the Spy Museum and Ford’s Theatre on the first day…and unbelievably, while waiting in line at the theatre, one of my oldest and dearest friends just happened to walk right at me. If time had been on our side, I would have snapped a few pictures of her incredible smiling face, but alas, it wasn’t.

But I did manage to take some pictures of the Ford’s Theatre. I was shocked to hear the tour guide say, “Get our your cameras. You can take photos. If you’ve got a flash, use it.” I knew right away I loved that guy.

Did I mention how much I love DC?
Because I do.
