Lauren and Kyle are over the moon for their little girl, sweet baby girl A, and in February we did a sweet maternity photo shoot showcasing Lauren’s adorable bump and the joyful expectancy of this lovely couple.
It is already clear how much baby A is loved, and Lauren simply glowed. I focused on simple, timeless portraiture. I sought to create classic images that will look as beautiful when baby A is grown up as they do today. For maternity especially, I love simple, clean lines showcasing the sweet baby bump and focusing on the emotions of the parents-to-be. Family shoots can be fun and even a little chaotic, but maternity shoots give me the chance to have a quieter approach and give a couple the opportunity to enjoy one another and this special time in their lives as they await a new life.
Here are some of my favorites from this special session!
Wow! It’s been a whirlwind since I returned ten days ago from the inaugural ComeUnity Workshop in Athens, GA, and there will certainly be a couple more posts to come! I learned so much from Phillip and Eileen Blume, and I can’t wait to start implementing some exciting changes in my business. And though the focus of the workshop was not specifically shooting, of course when you get a bunch of photographers together we all have fun shooting and learning from one another.
Today I’ll reveal a few images from the wedding portion of our styled shoot. There were some AMAZING designers, artists, and assistants who staged our scene, and let me tell you, keeping everyone (and everything!) fresh and beautiful in the hot, sticky Georgia September weather isn’t for the faint of heart. We had a gorgeous real-life husband and wife model for us, and they were wonderful, and very patient with all of our ideas and playing.
I can’t wait to share more from the second part of our styled shoot, as well as a general review of this awesome workshop… but that will have to wait until later this week! Stay tuned!
These are the only discounted sessions I will be offering before Christmas! This is an awesome chance to purchase wonderful art for your family while supporting a family fighting a tough battle.
I am so excited to announce an extra-special day of limited edition portrait sessions, Sessions for Seth. Many local people know the Woods family, because they are hugely involved in our community and church. The Woods family is fighting a tough battle, as their son Seth was recently diagnosed with aggressive brain cancer. Costs are mounting with this, with frequent commutes to specialists and expensive protocols.
I don’t know the Woods well, but I can only imagine how I would feel if my own Seth were facing this battle. I feel called to do what I can to help them, and together I think we can make a huge difference!
I’ve lined up a gorgeous, private location in Covington for our sessions on October 15. There are several time slots available, each for 20 minutes of shooting time. After your session, we will meet about two weeks later for an in-person “reveal” of your image, and you can make your purchase selections. The reveal is the most awesome part of my job! It is so exciting to get to enjoy your images together. And best of all, 100% (yes, all!!!!) of the profits from your reservation fee AND the digital collections will be donated to the Wood family.
This is the perfect time to get a taste of The Blessed Everyday experience if you’ve been considering it, all while supporting a family who needs our help. Please sign up today for your spot!
Stephanie and Kyle joined me for a sunset engagement portrait session, and together we had a blast!
When Stephanie’s best friend married Kyle’s brother, the paths of both crossed… and it was only natural that these two who loved their besties so dearly and spent so much time together would also fall in love with each other. Kyle’s quiet calm and easygoing nature is a perfect foil for Stephanie’s bubbly personality. We shared so much fun on this shoot: gentle teasing, big hugs, and lots of laughter.
Kyle and Stephanie, congratulations! I can’t wait for your wedding in March!
