Portraits


Getting to capture and preserve the important moments and people in someone’s life and the joy that’s shared is easily one the best parts of being a photographer.  It’s why we love shooting weddings and portraits, and maternity sessions are no exception.  There’s something so wonderful about the anticipation of that baby coming into the …

I’ve been thinking of what to write about shooting Andrea’s college graduation portraits at Georgia State University.  Amanda and I both graduated from GSU, and its campus has a lot of significance to us.  The school is located in the middle of downtown Atlanta, so in a lot of ways it’s not your typical college experience. Just as …

I think the thing I love most about photographing people is really getting to build lifelong relationships with them.  So much of what makes a photo special is about connecting with the subjects you’re shooting, and I’m so grateful for the times that we get to maintain those connections over the years.  That’s why it’s one …

One of the biggest fears I think a lot of people have when it comes to shooting images on film is capturing unpredictable subjects like young children.  Kids rarely want to stay still, (because they’re kids!) and that can be a little intimidating with a limited number of frames on a roll and no instant feedback.  It’s …

One of the things I love most about engagement sessions (other than getting to hang out with some awesome people!) is incorporating locations that have a special meaning to couple we’re photographing.  I think we hit the jackpot on important and beautiful locations for Molly and Will’s engagement photos.  We were able to shoot in the park where Will proposed, …

We’ve gotten to capture some pretty big and wonderful moments with Dustin & Brittany.  First their engagement, then their wedding, and then their maternity session, and now their beautiful new baby girl!  If you look back you’ll see me write a lot about how much we love these guys, but it definitely bears repeating.  We are …

We’d been waiting the past few months for spring to be able to do engagement photos with Kelsey and Kyle.  We picked the right spot and waited for plenty of flowers to be in bloom.  We even got a bright and sunny day and beautiful early morning light.  Everything came together perfect…except for the fact that …

Anyone who has hung out with me knows that I have a pretty cheesy and sarcastic sense of humor, and given the right company I will banter to no end. It just turns out that Judson is that kind of company!  From the first time that I met with him and Jamie about photographing their …

Getting together with couples for an engagement session is one of my favorite things to do.  It’s so great to be able to capture two people in love just being themselves and having fun!  Also it gives me a chance to spend time with people and really get to know them better before all the …

The great thing about spring wedding season and all it’s busyness is getting to be a part of all the awesome energy and getting to know photograph so many wonderful people!  The bad thing is that I tend to get behind on personal projects.  That being said, I’m really making an effort to get caught …

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, what I love most about being a photographer is getting to capture the important moments and people in a person’s life.  We’ve known Kristen and Brian over 3 years now, and we are so excited to help them celebrate the little bundle of awesome that’s on …

After taking maternity photos for them,  last November, we were extra excited to be able to photograph Ryan & Pamela’s brand new baby boy, Josiah!  Without further delay, here he is!  Congratulations you two! Josiah’s a lucky little guy!             Need some photos of your own? You can check out …
