A Look at What's to Come {Atlanta Lifestyle Photographer - Charlotte, NC Weekend}

I am so blessed to be able to go back to Charlotte, North Carolina and not only visit friends and family, but also to have some amazing people to photograph. 

This last weekend I made the 4.5 hour drive up from Atlanta with three very important sessions on my mind.

The first one was the final session in a one year newborn to one year portrait package.  Christen, Nels, and their lovely daughter Amelia are so dear to my heart.  Not only has Christen been my friend since high school (maybe middle school, but I don't honestly remember! YIKES!), I was also entrusted by her to photograph her gorgeous wedding a few years ago.  Her husband, Nels, is a silly, hilarious dad, and the two of them are the perfect pair for their extremely curious daughter, Amelia.  I have LOVED watching this little nugget grow up over the past year!  Here is probably my favorite image from the session.  What a little frosting monster!!

The next session on my schedule was the main reason for the trip in the first place.  My gorgeous best friend Rachel is pregnant with her second little blessing (and first girl!), and we had been planning this session since she first found out she was pregnant!  Rachel, Ryan, and their son Ian all got their own family session for the birth announcement, so Rachel was all to herself with the maternity session.  She is one hot momma and as much as I want to share the more traditional portraits we took, I am sharing this one.  It's a little out of my norm, and I just love it so much!


My last session of the weekend was another past wedding couple!  Lauren & Steven got married about 5 years ago now, and their wedding was so amazingly beautiful, I still remember the whole day.  Well, they had this little guy 3 years ago, and I got to photograph him when he was a baby, but I was so shocked to see how big he had grown!  Jackson is a hilarious little ball of energy and Carolina Panther's pride!  We took a lot of family portraits, but this one is hands down my favorite of Jackson, aside from a few I have of him doing the touchdown dab!

It was such a nice trip up to see old friends and my family, and I cannot wait to go up again!  Keep an eye out this week and next for the full blogs from each of these awesome sessions!

Baby A is 6 Months Old! {6 Month Session} | Atlanta Georgia Family Photographer

This family...I absolutely love them!  I photographed their wedding, and continued the love with their maternity session, as well as little miss A's newborn and now her 6 month portraits.  This little girl is such an adorable ball of smiles.  Miss A was a little fashion plate (is that striped outfit not TO DIE FOR?!), and got super entranced by the bubbles daddy blew for her!   She was smiley and so happy to be playing and laughing with her Mom and Dad.  Enjoy these gorgeous, happy portraits!

John + Maria {Love on Fire} | Atlanta, Ga Wedding & Engagement Photography

On fire is one of the only ways I can describe these two. I’ve known Maria for a few years now, and I’ve never seen her happier than after she met John. These two are inseparable! Gym buddies, car buddies, life partners. They covered all their bases! I was so excited when Maria, who is also a model (I mean, look at her!), asked me about shooting her engagement session! i was also very happy that not only did the gorgeous leaves stick around for us, but that these two were such troopers. I’m fairly certain we picked the COLDEST fall day to have the shoot! Anyway, enjoy!!
