JP Is New Here | At Home | Woodstock, GA

JP’s parents put a Wampa rug in his nursery.  I think we already know this kid’s gonna be awesome.

Kim & Joe’s furbaby couldn’t resist trying to sneak into a few photos…

I love it when newborns smile.  I know, I know… they don’t know they’re doing it.  But STILL.  So precious.

Somewhere around this moment, I opened my big mouth and said that JP looked like a cute little Gollum.  I seriously meant it in the best possible way.  ALL newborn babies look like tiny old men, or funny little elves, or hairless orangutans.  It’s what makes babies so fun to look at.  THANK HEAVEN Kim & Joe didn’t immediately kick me out of their home.  (I seriously need to work on my compliments.)

Favorite: Joe’s grown-up hand on JP’s tiny little baby tummy…

Lillian Paige, Day 1

In the spring, when my brother texted me a picture of a sonogram, I told him, “If you have another son, I’m putting him in a dress and calling him Isabelle.”  I didn’t have to make good on my threat.  My sister-in-law gave birth to a perfect little baby girl two days after Christmas.  This is Lillian Paige.

Holland: What’s that?

Monica: That’s your baby sister.  That’s Lily.

Holland: That Leeloo.  That MINE.

We didn’t tell Corbin that Lily couldn’t see him waving.  He was too happy.  No need to break the spell.

Jessica & Daniel | At Home | Pine Lake, GA

I’d like to photograph Jessica & Daniel’s wedding over and over: for its simple joy, for its delicate beauty, for its natural setting, for its relaxed intimacy.  As I’ve said before, I love a big, fancy wedding; but there’s something about a small affair that touches my soul.  Perhaps it’s the lack of distraction.  With no elaborate decor or extensive vendor list, your full attention can rest with the person you are about to marry.

Jessica & Daniel got ready together, in their home.

Favorite:

Friends and family arrived at the house early, and relaxed together before the ceremony.

Outside for a few quiet portraits before the ceremony…

The ketubah signing.

Because they celebrated with such an intimate group of friends and family, all of Jessica and Daniel’s guests were able to sign their ketubah.

A few last-minute tears and words of wisdom from their rabbi before the ceremony.

Everyone walked out of the house and down the road to the lake for Jessica and Daniel to be married.

Jessica & Daniel had their first dance lakeside, under their chuppah, immediately following their ceremony.

Everyone at the wedding:

Ashley & Brad didn’t get the mild, sunny November day they had hoped for.  But you know what they DID get?  They got MARRIED.  And it was perfect.  Love and smiles, all the way, with just a few happy tears thrown in for luck. These are a few of my favorite photos of their celebration…

My Co-tographer: Erin Schopf
Ceremony: Roswell Street Baptist Church
Reception: Marietta Country Club
Ashley’s Gown: Allure
Brad’s Tux: Savvi
Ashley’s Makeup: Andrea Carter
Flowers: Juli Vaughn Designs
DJ: Nice Guys DJ

Ashley’s mom, helping her with her dress…

Brad, trying on and showing off his ring…

Ashley teared up while reading a little letter to Brad’s daughter.  I love the expression on little Addison’s face while her stepmom-to-be snuggles close to her.

Brad sees his bride in her wedding gown for the first time…

Addison twirls for her daddy…

The wind finally died down enough for Ashley’s hair to be safe outside, as long as we stayed on the sheltered balcony!

At the church…

I hope I still dance like this with my husband after 40+ years of marriage!

My FAVORITE-EST Atlanta DJ.  For reals.  Call Hans.  Call him.

Another year with this sweet family.  Another year with this couple whose wedding I photographed, oh, fifty couples ago?  Another year of seeing Jeff’s daughters become young women; another year of seeing Jeff and Allison’s twins become children, and babies no longer.  Another year celebrating love and family with a family I’ve seen every year, for so many years, I’ve started to think of them as an extension of my own.  I’m so blessed to do what I do.  I love you, Maurer family!

I’m tall.  I love tall people.  Lauren & Patrick are tall.  I love Lauren & Patrick.

But they’re also kind, and funny, and stylish, and have one helluva sweet dog!

Special thanks to my go-to coordinator, Amy DiLoreti, for sending these cuties my way!
