Glamorous Baby Bump | Atlanta Maternity Photographer

Man oh maaaan, I love maternity sessions. I love talking to expecting families, and I RRREALLY love it when my expecting mothers BRING IT for their maternity shoots. Latoria definitely showed up appearing to be very comfortable in her skin. She started with ONLY wanting a silhouette shot, but I’m glad that she decided on a full on shoot because I think her shoot turned out amazing. Congrats to this couple on their baby girl! I can’t wait to see her when she gets here!

My fave!!! 

I really used to dread going out to the enormous Piedmont Park. I’d literally try to steer my clients away from that park, but I’ve really fallen in love with it this season.

 

Thanks for looking!

A sweet little Charlotte Family of 3

This shoot has kind of been in the works since Kandice was pregnant. She’s followed my work since the beginning, and when she found out she was pregnant, we began setting up her maternity shoot. Unfortunately, distance and timing got in the way of that. Welp, Baby MJ came and he was soooooo cute…so we started planning for a perhaps a newborn shoot…..aaaand once again, time and distance stood between things. Here we are about 7/8 months later and we were FINALLY able to make it happen!

MJ was a little busy body, and I think  Kandice was concerned that he was TOO busy, but like I always tell my clients, I don’t mind a busy baby. In fact, that’s my comfort zone. I pride myself on being patient with little ones, and I don’t mind running for a bit to catch that perfect shot. I also appreciate Kandice and Mike for pulling all of their little tricks out of the bag to help get this little man to give me such gorgeous smiles.

I’m glad we were able to make this happen, and I sure hope that I get the opportunity to work with your sweet & beautiful family again, Kandice & Mike!

Adrienne & Seith’s E-Session | Augusta Engagement Photographer

E-Sessions are a liiiitttttttle outside of my norm, but I must say that I absolutely LOVE the way that this session turned out. I’m actually excited to do another engagement at this point. There’s just something about working with and chatting with people about one of, if not…THE upcoming happiest day of their lives. Adrienne and Seith were just so in love, and everything flowed pretty natural. I love that they had so many moments during their shoot. They make a beautiful couple, and they made my job EXTREMELY easy, but don’t just take my word for it…have a look for yourself!

Wishing these two nothing but blessings and many years of happiness together!:)

 

Thanks for looking!

Bohannon Family | Augusta Family Photographer

Another high school friend came to me for family pictures! YAAY! I really enjoyed working with Lora and Rusty and their sweet baby girl Ava, who is now 7 months. Lora and Rusty are doing such an amazing job with their baby. I just love seeing her little pictures and videos on IG/FB. Seeing people that I grew up with in this new light will just never get old. Also, I’m SO happy that Rusty’s mom came to the shoot. Although I could tell that Ava is a happy little girl, it was a huuuge help having grandma there to help us get the laughs going!

Anyway, enjoy their pictures!

I love that Ava is wearing these vintage Cowboy Boots! They were her daddy’s when he was her age! 

No family members are allowed to come to the shoot without hopping in a few shots!;)LOL!

Suzanne Hart - Omg these are to die for!!! Awesome job what great pictures!! Love them

A precious boy AND a girl…coming right up!

Goodness! I edited these pictures thinking “Dear Lord. If you ever decide to bless me with twins…or even just one sweet baby…pppplease let me look like this during my pregnancy!” Nikita is carrying these babies with so much confidence. I mean, I’m sure she has her moments, but for her and her husband’s maternity session, she sure showed up and blew me away! She’d planted the seed of me shooting her TWIN maternity session months ago…so I’d always thought about cute things we could do, but her session surpassed anything that I saw in my head.

These two were a dream. They trusted me on the location, the time, the props, the everrrrything. The only request they  had was to incorporate the dad-to-be’s job. When she told me he was a firefighter…I thought HECK YEAH! I knew it’d be HOT and different from anything I’d ever done, but again…it turned out so amazing in my opinion. They rocked the shots with that hot gear on like I’m sure no one else could do (or at least they set the bar pretty high)! I’m just loving incorporating a little of my client’s visions + a little of my vision.

On a deeper & personal note, when Nikita saw these images for the first time, she sent me the most thoughtful message that made me tear up and feel so honored and blessed to be a part of these moments for such amazing people!:)Believe me, each and every time I hear such powerful words from my clients and just people in general I humbly think “Really?!” I compare myself so often to photographers that have been doing this for YEARS, but you guys sure push and inspire me to keep on keepin’ on with this photography journey.

Anyway, take a look at these awesome parents-to-be.

I really love the evening sunlight. I’m thinking about just shooting exclusively during the “golden hours” now.

The tops that Baby Girl and Baby Boy will wear home!

I can’t imagine Nikita and Eddie’s excitement…I’m even overly anxious to see their pictures when they make it here!!!:D

Thanks for looking!!!
