Happy Holidays: Marshall Family

With the new addition to the Marshall family Mom was ready for some updated portraits and what a wonderful shoot it was.  If Mom and dad look a little familiar it might be because they were with me back in March doing their maternity shoot waiting the arrival of Devyn! This was a beautiful shoot and a great time to capture their family portraits!

Thank you so much Marshall family wishing you all a very Happy Holidays!

Engagement Shoot: Travis & Laquisha

Travis and Laquisha are getting married, and what a joy it was to get to know them and shoot their engagement portraits.

We all know the saying ” if it’s meant to be, It will be”…right? Though I’m not sure they were thinking this way back in 2009 when their friendship slowly drifted away.   After several years of little to no communication between the two, they finally reconnected via #Instagram with…she “liked” his pictures, he “liked” her pictures!

They both knew this was a relationship waiting to happen, but waiting to see who would make the first move.  Travis asked her out to a work event and Laquisha said YES!  This was their “It will be” moment and they’re enjoying every moment of this new chapter in their lives…Together.

This is their road to Mr. & Mrs. Beasley!

 

 

Mommy and Me Shoot!

Since it’s #fbf and I never posted these images of the beautiful Ari.  I thought today would be a wonderful day to post them.

Ari is one of my maternity babies so I’m always excited to have the little ones come for their photoshoot!  She was so sweet and such a very happy little girl.

Maternity: The Wait for Skyelyn

A Beautiful family at an amazing Atlanta Location is all you need to showoff a beautiful baby bump.  The weather was great and the wonderful fall colors brought the best backdrop to this shoot.

I couldn’t be more happier with how this shoot went, Chay and the family are wonderful people who are all excited about the Arrival of Skyelyn.

Did I mention how Gorgeous Chay is? She is wearing this pregnancy very well!

I’m sure Skyelyn will feel like thee luckiest girl in the world knowing she has these strong wonderful men who will forever protect her…not to mention her soon to be best buddy (Cody)

I hope you all enjoy all the wonderful moments from their shoot as much as I did.

 

Levy Holiday Family Portraits

It was such a pleasure capturing the wonderful Levy family again.  I’m just amazed at how much Olivia and Lexi have grown, and such beautiful Little girls.  The morning weather was wonderful and we actually got out there before Georgia’s unusual Fall weather of 86 degrees.

I hope you all enjoy the wonderful moments that were captured of this beautiful Family!

 

Historic Fourth Ward: The Lilly Wedding

Just like their Fall engagement shoot, Barry & Topaz Wedding was Absolutely Beautiful! There was so much Love surrounding them. The weather was great and the Historic Fourth Ward Park was the perfect spot for a #WelcomeToLillyLand Theme!

They both wrote their vows, which left you understanding their love for each other.  Their relationship is built not only with love but friendship, respect, support, and confirmation that they see the beauty in each other.

From the mist of water blessing them during the ceremony, to Topaz mom showing up in the beautiful form of a Rainbow(that you will surly see throughout the images).  I felt blessed to be apart of this wonderful union.  They will forever be apart of the Gober family.

Barry & Topaz Lilly, I Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being a blessing to my life, you both bring such Happiness and Love to those who are in your presence.  I Pray for continued love and blessings for your Union.

Chamblee City Hall: Brian & Sophia

It was truly a hot summers day in Georgia, but love was in the air! Sophia was happy and Brian was excited and Nervous…He said “I just want her to have the perfect day.” Though this as their day, his main concern was her being happy.

And it was just that…Perfect!

The ceremony was beautiful, from the minister having them pray for one another to having them both ask for forgiveness for anything they may have done or said in the past.  Giving Brian and Sophia a fresh start on the new chapter in their life as husband and wife!

Sophia & Brian, I thank you both for allowing me this opportunity of capturing your special Wedding Day!  I pray your Union is forever blessed and that you both continue to believe, pray and forgive one another.

 

 

 

 

 

Long Lost Family

Sometimes I find myself being completely taken by a television show that totally touches my heart.

Last night I had one of those moments while watching the show Long Lost Family.  I sat there listening to the stories of two families, with two totally different stories.   I thought about how they must’ve felt growing up knowing they were adopted but not knowing their biological parents.  I listened to their stories and thought…wow, what amazing people to finally be able to have closure and say ok I understand why… and I thank you for loving me enough to allow me to have an Amazing life.

I know there are many adoption stories and not all of them have a happy ending.  But these two stories touched my heart and allowed me to reflect on being a mother, mommy, mom.   To see and feel how truly blessed I am to have children who love, who forgive and have such free spirits. I consider myself to be Extremely, BLESSED!

A Family of Love and Laughter

The day was absolutely beautiful at Vines Garden Park, I love shooting at this location because it gives variety!  You can never go wrong with this location.

When you’re given a family that shows Love, Laughter and how to embrace the moments they have together, it makes it very hard for me to stop shooting!  I’m grateful they allowed me into their lives, to see how they have fun as a family.

Enjoy the Love and Laughter of this family!
