Why Photography is Important
I took this bathroom selfie in 2011. It was almost 2 years after my last child was born. I’d worked hard (and starved my self a little) to get here. I took the picture because I felt beautiful. I loved that girl.
Today, I’m not even close to that size.…
Girl Dad | Inspired by Kobe and Gianna Bryant
I love girl dad’s! I’m in love with a girl dad! There’s a soft, nurturing manliness about men that have girls. Kobe Bryant’s death has inspired a movement. Men were already doing the work of quietly loving and raising their daughters. I read somewhere that his body was found hugging…

Formal Church Wedding in Atlanta, Georgia | Joshua and Janice
There’s something about a classic, formal wedding inside of
a church that gets me every time. It just feels so pure and cinematic. I love

Intimate Weddings are the Best Kept Wedding Secret
Who will surround you on your wedding day
You could get married with a big crowd. Or it could just be the two of you, standing together, deeply in love, pledging to be together forever, through thick or thin, for richer or poorer. I love elopements and micro weddings.

They got married on a Thursday. Yup, a T-h-u-r-s-d-a-y, an absolutely random weekday wedding. It was gorgeous. I loved every single thing about it. I loved all the little pinterest-y details. I love how she carefully personalized gifts for her bridesmaids. The pastel color pallette was just gorgeous. Every, single…
Posed Pictures or Genuine Emotion
It’s your wedding day. Or your family session. Or your engagement session.Do you prefer posed pictures or candid shots only?I say both! Truthfully, I’ll place couples together and then allow them to do what comes naturally for them.
