Happy Sweet 16 Caviana!

Today Ms. Caviana turns the Big 16! Caviana is one of my favorites to work with.  She has a beautiful spirit, confidence and just a beautiful person!  When we did her first shoot I was blown away at how comfortable she was in front of the camera.

Fast forward to her Sweet 16 birthday party…just amazing!! She and her step team performed a dance routine and it was wonderful.

I will say that I was truly amazed and proud when I arrived at the party…There were so many pictures on display from her photoshoot, most times clients ask to purchase there entire gallery but you hardly ever get to see what they do with the images…do they print them or do they grow old and lost on the computer. So it was a blessing for me to walk in and see all these images on the tables, and throughout the event.

Enjoy!!

Wedding Bells: Mr. & Mrs. McClendon

Mallory and Latisa were married at the beautiful Buford Community Center in Buford, GA. It was a beautiful day that was filled with so much love and happiness for Mallory & Latisa.  I am very grateful they chose me for this wonderful moment in their lives.

The couple decided on their first look to be before the ceremony.  Latisa was so anxious for Mallory to see her, and he didn’t let her down…he was truly in Aw over his Beautiful Bride-to-be.

The Big Thirteen!!

This was a very exciting shoot, and I’m so grateful that Onaly’s mom chose me to capture this moment for her!

The girls were so excited to have their own photoshoot and I was excited to see them have a really good time in front of the camera.  They all were sweet young ladies with wonderful spirits.   They were singing and dancing and having a great time, being in the moment.

The location that was chosen was Cabbage town which is one of my favorite spots to visit in Atlanta. There’s so much to do and the artwork is Amazing!!  Happy Birthday Onaly!!!

Hope you all Enjoy!

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.
