Keaton-1-2blog

Last weekend, I got to hang out with Keaton and her dog Ruby. We started the session at Keaton’s house and then headed over to Maryville College. I always have fun photographing children, you never know what you are going to get … smiles or tears…or both, within just a few seconds of each other. I got all of it, including some blue lollipop drool. Enjoy! You can see Keaton’s previous sessions here, here and here

I played with some texture on a couple of these;)

Hmm, got any snacks for me in there?

Two weeks ago, I second shot Angie & Robb’s wedding at the Villa Christina along side the very talented Bryan Allen in Atlanta, GA. If anyone came to this wedding without a clear understanding of why they call Atlanta “Hotlanta”, I am sure they completely understand now. It was unbelievably hot on Friday during the rehearsal. Luckily, it did cool off a bit on wedding day! In spite of the heat, Angie and Robb had a beautiful wedding at the Villa followed but a laid back reception with family and friends at The Pavillion of East Cobb.  Here are a few of the images I grabbed. Please hop on over to Bryan’s site to check out the rest! Congratulations Angie and Robb!!

All getting ready images were taken at the W Hotel Buckhead

QP and the family tree…

Quinn Peyser has done it once again… she created this beautiful piece of art that I get to hang in my house! This giant 24×36 canvas arrived today and I absolutely love it!

If you have not been to Quinn’s site you need to head over and check it out! Not only is she the world’s best doodler, she also does wedding invites, save the dates, and she draws trees for me (I kind of have a small obsession with trees). Thank you Quinn for this family tree picture!!! I cannot wait to hang it over the fireplace in our living room!

Make sure you check out Quinn’s site here or you can head over to her etsy shop as well!!

Most weekends we have a big breakfast on Sunday but this morning I had an eight am shoot, so we had to move our big breakfast up a day. Normally, the kids like to veg out and watch some tv while John and I cook but Saturday morning they all wanted to help…the kitchen was a disaster but the pancakes were delicious. Nothing like some chocolate smiley face pancakes to get you moving on a Saturday morning!!

Yes that is a Bisquick bag…I am a cheater! I have already admitted to being the world’s worst cook:)

Eggs! Reece tried to steal our egg. He grabbed it and took off running, I was afraid it was going to end up on the couch but we got it back to the kitchen safely!

This happens every weekend. Reece climbs up into Cade’s chair and tries to eat his food (this weekend he caught an elbow to the cheek)…

saturday-12blog

and then Cade taunts him with the food…

…and then Reece asks for a bite of mine.

And if all of that wasn’t enough to  wake me up, I always have my hot cup of tea:) Look at that perfect steam swirl!!

Last week I got to photograph not only my first sister shoot but also my first identical twin shoot…thank goodness they no longer dress alike and Katherine has longer hair than Kelli. I am the worst at telling twins apart! The three of us met at Volunteer Landing and wandered around until we covered almost every inch of the river walk. Katherine and Kelli thank you for spending your Thursday afternoon with me, I had a great time!!

Last weekend, I got to return to what has become a very special place to me, as I shot my very first wedding ever (alongside the blonde photographer) at this venue a little over a year ago… The Morningside Inn in Frederick, MD. I was so excited to return to the Morningside Inn as I knew it would be the perfect venue for a perfect couple. Bridget and Jeremy are both incredibly sweet, funny, and absolutely, one hundred percent in love. Bridget and Jeremy thank you for allowing me to document the beginning of what I am sure will be a long and happy life of love and laughter. Congratulations!!

Bridget took off running down the hill…very unexpectedly. I was thankful I had my pumas on and did not eat it on the way down the hill. The shot below is one of my favorites from the day, so I guess falling would have been worth it.

There was a lot of circle dancing at this reception. Note to self: don’t lay down on dance floor during circle dances…you will get trampled.
