Roshie in the Park

I really love working with fashion blogger Roshie Anne of AnneConventional.com. This was our second session together - a beautiful December day on Riverside Drive modeling workout looks and fitness practices. Roshie obviously is gorgeous and has great style, but what makes it such a pleasure to work with her is her infectious energy and enthusiasm. She is so bubbly and confident that you can't help but feel inspired just being around her! 

Elvis and Bea's DC Engagement

 

When two people you love very much invite you to DC for a weekend to celebrate their commitment to one another, it is a pretty awesome experience. Bea and Elvis, I am so excited for your next adventure and honored that you asked me to capture a bit of your love and happiness on camera. I'm thankful for our years of friendship and cannot wait for many more. Cheers to you both! 

Jackie and Jarrett's Rehearsal

I love wedding rehearsals. They are fun, intimate, and brimming with anticipation. Jackie and Jarrett's rehearsal was just such an occasion. It was truly a celebration of joy, love, friends, and family. I am so excited for them as they begin this new journey together!

Gabrielle and Brent

It's a wonderful thing to witness two people you love fall in love with one another. Brent and Gabby are the type of people who radiate happiness wherever they go, and their shared sense of adventure is contagious. I am so thankful that they found each other, and I wish them all the bliss in the world! 

Isabel and Richard

I met Isabel when we were both corps members at Teach For America almost four years ago. I have truly enjoyed getting to know her over the years, meeting her beautiful family, and watching them all grow together. I was so thrilled when she and Richard announced their engagement, and then again when they asked me to take their engagement pictures. I absolutely loved doing these photos; there is such a deep level of love and warmth between these two that it is palpable. It is clear by the way they look at each other how much love and respect exists in their relationship. These qualities are reflected in their children as well; they are sweet, precocious, and joyful.  I couldn't resist taking a few pictures of the kiddos too. I felt so inspired by this wonderful family! 

The pictures were taken at The Goat Farm in Atlanta, Georgia. 

The Tesars

The Tesar Family - Buddy, Karina, Eliana, and Joseph. 

It has been incredible witnessing the Tesars' journey. From dancing at their wedding, late nights in their apartment, playing with their new puppy, beach trips and camping, to visiting them in their first house, meeting their little girl and a few years later their little boy, I have loved being a part of this family's adventures. My husband and I have been friends with the Tesars since college, and now, with so many life changes, our friendship seems to become even stronger and more valuable. Thank you Buddy and Karina for letting me capture some special moments with your beautiful family!

Models at The Goat Farm

Photo shoot at The Goat Farm Arts Center. Atlanta, Georgia. February 2014.

Sunday was my first Meetup, and my first time photographing professional models. I was a little intimidated, but the other photographers at the event were incredibly supportive, and the models were so sweet about my awkwardness when posing them. It was an interesting and helpful experience!

Oliver's First Birthday

Oliver Shearrow's first birthday party.

What a joyous day! It's hard to believe that already a year has past since my friends brought life into the world. I am so happy to have been there to celebrate Oliver's first birthday. One of the best parts was watching his face light up when everyone sang to him, and then light up even more with his first bite of cake. I love the monster theme!

The Shearrows

John, Amanda, and Oliver Shearrow make up one of the kindest, warmest, and cutest families I know. They are also some of my dearest friends, and I've loved being a part of their lives and witnessing all of their exciting changes over the past seven years. It was a joy to take pictures of the Shearrows at their beautiful new home in Atlanta this past Sunday. Oh and with those doe-eyes and huge grin, Oliver is definitely a little heartbreaker
