I am in love with these pictures! Me and this girl have been through so much together so to have to hand her off to a guy - it's not easy. Luckily Ryan is amazing and their chemistry together really shows in these pictures. From someone who knows, she is not always easy to deal with, it takes a special person to love her as much as Ryan does! I cannot wait for the big day and I wish you guys the most amazing life together.
I got a call asking if I would be interested in doing C-Section photos. I told Victoria that I had never done it before but if she was okay with that I would be happy to jump on board. This little guy just had the whole world stop for him because baby had to come out and so many things had to fall into place to make this happen. He came out perfect! Meeting this sweet family and the love that they have for him and what they have been through to get to this point was honestly life changing.
This weekend Blain and I took a spontaneous road trip to visit my parents. They live in the cutest area and are living the dream with their boat in their back yard, on the canal, where they are frequently visited by dolphins and otters. We hit traffic on the way and were running late...I of course made us later by making Blain stop to take some quick pics and I may have also utilized the sun roof.
This has been one of my favorite(and most stressful) jobs to date. Kelly contacted me a couple of weeks ago about doing this video with her and I was so excited. I don't normally get to do long video, just short promos and things like that. We had a blast making this as her Redken Artist Audition Video. The best part? Within two hours of submitting the video they called her for an interview! Fingers crossed, good luck girl!
Update: She got it, congrats Kelly!
My best friend gave birth to her gorgeous baby girl this past weekend. I was so lucky to get to take pictures of these precious moments of her first child. It was the most beautiful experience! It wasn't easy for her, but Sophia Grace made her appearance on Sunday January 29 at 11lb 9oz and 22 1/2". You can see their maternity pictures here.
This year for Christmas my family took an amazing trip to the British Virgin Islands. It was amazing. The color of the water, how soft the sand is, and the size of the fish. It's unbelievable. So I thought I would share a little taste of that.
Also this is my first time using my new FUJIXT2 and let me say, it was wonderful. For the first time on vacation it wasn't a hassle to carry my camera(and an extra lens) around. Mirrorless is the way to go. There are a few shameless selfies and iPhone pics thrown in.
Over the weekend I was able to go visit my best friend for her baby shower. While I was there we took a short trip to Flat Rock Park in Columbus for a quick maternity shoot. Guys, she is so pretty! I love her and her husband and the love they share.
I love these! Rehearsal Dinner Slideshows are always such a fun way for both families to get to know their knew additions. This one was customized with multiple songs from childhood to the engagement. Enjoy!

Z1 Motorsports put on another great Z Nationals this year. Unfortunately we weren't able to make it out the the track day :( but made it out to the car show. We loved the change of venue and felt that as the event continues to grow it was much needed.
That moment when you almost ruin your best friends engagement by passing her on the road but then you play it cool and she doesn't notice so you get to snipe the whole thing. Ryan was so sweet and wanted to include their rescue dog they adopted together. He took her to the dog park after work where he showed her this really sweet website he had made for her with memories and pictures and a heartfelt letter!
If you ever have the option - do a backyard wedding. This wedding was so relaxed and intimate. Congrats!
If you are a Z owner/lover and haven't been to ZDAYZ...GO. It is the most fun and Brian and Michelle put so much work into making this a great event. Between the airstrip, The Tail of The Dragon, and The Car Show, you won't be disappointed!
Recently I had the most amazing and devastating trip of my life. We were already going for two weeks in September for my cousin's wedding. My husband and roommate were making the trip with me. Unfortunately about a week before we were supposed to leave I got a call from my mom telling me my Nana's health was failing and she didn't have long. My heart broke because that suddenly made what felt like such a short time after waiting so long feel like an eternity. We made plans to move our flights sooner but it was too late and she passed away while my dad was on the way there.
Me and my mom were leaving a couple days later. While we were there, to distract himself I think, my dad drove us around to some incredible places and shared beautiful memories. Some silent, some spoken. When I got home I wanted to kick myself for not taking my camera around with us to capture all of these moments. As a photographer, I think we feel a lot of pressure to immobilize time, to make it feel real, finite and infinite. But this was not how I was supposed to experience these moments.
Instead I leave you with the one photo I felt was important enough to take the time to capture. It's simple- just a cell phone picture. While going through my Nana's things I found some dried flowers hanging in her closet by a ribbon. Something we share that I was never told or taught...it's just a part of me. Something I found beautiful.
This couple was so fun and genuine. They put so much work into this wedding to make it personable from the wildflowers picked from a friends local farm to the pies served for people who don't like cake. And even though it rained(poured) for their supposed to be outdoor lake wedding they had so much fun and enjoyed the experience together. Congrats you two!
I am so lucky to have been called to England for this wedding. What a gorgeous venue and one of a kind couple. Legends, congrats you two!
Rides to remember is an annual charity event put on by Ferrari Maserati Atlanta. They take a group of terminally ill children to Road Atlanta for a track day with local partners coming out in their personal vehicles. What an honor it was to be a part of this event!
