On the car ride to her photo shoot location, Dany and I talked. She was wrapped in a cloud of fluffy while tulle; feeling beautiful and a little apprehensive like every  fifteen year old girls who gets to be princess for a day in the customary cuban fashion.

We talked and covered boys, college, classes, and friends in a short twenty minutes. Although it always boils down to the same topics; I love having a glimpse into these girls lives, their distinctive personalities and their fresh, reachable dreams. Dany in particular is kind of quiet and shy but has big plans, and I have a feeling she may just make them real.

Here are my favorites from her session:

I had the pleasure to photograph two lovely girls in Miami this week. They are both very sweet ladies and I had a great time setting such pretty subjects against some of the most beautiful scenery in South Florida.

Stay tuned for more of these two sessions. Here is a little taste of them:

With this couple and me it may have been love at first sight, we clicked from the very beginning and there just isn’t much I haven’t already said about them.

Maybe except that Kristy is one of the funniest people I know. Yes, she is beautiful, and she is just as beautiful on the inside, not for one moment taking herself too seriously, or demanding to be the center of attention, but naturally radiating that genuine happiness that draws everyone to her.

That draws Chris to her.

He lead, managed, took care of details behind the scenes on his wedding day, making sure everything was perfect, not to impress, but for her. So that his bride would have her perfect day. He has this innate ability to give and put others first.

Kristy, Chris, it was such an honor to be part of your day. Here are my favorites from your beautiful wedding:

Georgia has grown on me in the past four years, or is it five? When I first moved to this small town from a big, bustling city, I felt so out of place. Rather than being soothed, envigorated by its expansiveness I felt smothered.

As the months went by and I drove through the quiet country roads to our new home in Newnan, its peace started growing on me. The pastures, the cows, the intense green and painted white houses surrounding my neighborhood became nurturing, familiar. I still get my fill of the city life when I go visit my parents several times a year, but inevitably, as I drive back to my southern house in Georgia, it feels like home.

I am moving this weekend; just fifteen minutes away from my current home. This is a new, exciting chapter of our family’s life and I am so excited to be at this stage. But as I hustled to get last minute details squared away for moving, I had to pause and photograph some spots that I have become attached to. Spots I drive by every day and have become part of that comforting, homey scenery that helped me fall in love with Georgia.

Sometimes life throws curve balls. Like a prophecy that the world will end on your wedding day, or the DJ forgetting the song for your first dance, or the power going out during the reception toasts. Challenges like these can discourage even the most cheerful of brides. When it comes to our wedding day, we want everything to be perfect.

But life is not perfect, and it is sometimes among the chaos that the best opportunities arise; a chance to cling on to your husband for support, to know how blessed you are to have friends who will walk you through any crisis, a chance to value what really matters in life. A chance to cut your wedding cake to romantic candlelight, to the sound of laughter and celebration, rather than electrical lights and a random song blasted from the DJ’s speaker :)

Life doesn’t always happen the way we plan it. Brittany and Matt had an unconventional, whirlwind of a wedding to match their unconventional, unique love story. The crazier the circumstances, the more they hold on to each other, lift up each other. They have that kind of love.

Here are some of my favorite images from their special day…

Their first look :)

Everything about Brittany was pure class and elegance.

Some couples just have an energy about them. They gravitate towards each other even when in a crowd, they laugh together incessantly, and they build each other up, fuel each other to become better and stronger.

I was touched to photograph one of these couples on their wedding day last weekend. He also happens to be my beloved cousin and you may remember their engagement session here. The wedding was, in one word, emotional. It’s hard not to be when you are witness to this kind of celebration, the type that reminds of you of what’s real and important in life.

Without further due:

Love Ana’s shoes!

Ana and Roldan opted to see each other before the ceremony which I love. It gave them a chance to connect and have a private moment before their guests arrived.

The wedding party…

FUN!

I didn’t know my little cousin had these moves :)

A very emotional father -daughter dance…

I was working in Miami last week, and my first session there was very unusual for me, because it was a family of adults.

Jennifer, the oldest daughter contacted me a while back about photographing them. This foursome is very close-knit despite the kids being fully grown. Jennifer is very passionate about her parents and very protective of her little sister, and she reminded me in a way, of myself. I love that I was able to capture this phase of their lives.

Here are my favorites:

“I am not really affectionate in public” was one of the first things Kelby said when I arrived at their brand new house yesterday. Hmmm, right. :)   For the entire duration of their engagement photo shoot yesterday, Kelby could not take his hands off his gorgeous fiancee. Looking through all the shots, I am amazed by how protective he is of his future wife and the bond these two share. They play and goof around like high school sweethearts and if there’s anything that their brand new home won’t be lacking, it is laughter and affection.

Heather and Kelby share a love for cooking and baking. We started their engagement photo shoot in their brand new house.

Gimme some sugar :)

Heather’s family has this huge property where the wedding wilk take place in September. Heather has an amazing, close-knit family. Her aunt had this swing made and hung on the property in honor of Heather and Kelby the day before the shoot. Isn’t that the most thoughtful gesture ever?

I LOVE this shot!

Heather, you are breathtaking!

And this is Kelby doing his GQ special :)

These two are my favorites. You guys look incredible!

Thank you guys for letting me into your lives to document your love. your wedding is going to be a dream! Hugs :)

At the risk of sounding old I must say this. Is it me, or are newborns stronger and smarter now a days? At five days old, little Anderson can lift her head and look around the room no problem. She was very alert and a complete angel during her newborn session yesterday, and it may be coincidence but she smiled a couple of times while I was talking to her about her mommy :)

This wonderful family booked their newborn session a while back and after much anticipation, their first baby girl finally arrived. I got to spend yesterday morning with them and their newborn princess and loved every minute of it.

Thank you guys for welcoming me into your home to document this amazing season of your lives. I can tell Anderson will be surrounded by so much love. Congratulations!

Here is a small sneak peek of our session:

Ever since we moved to our house in Georgia four years ago, I have marveled at this driveway a few blocks from our home. The perfect line of trees is always there, patiently waiting for the next season to bring about a new color. In the summer, they are a lush green that sparkles when the wind dances through their leaves. In the fall, they are bright orange-red, like a floating flame leading to an endangered house, this past week the first signs of spring are starting to paint them a cottony white, my favorite, and in another week or so they will change to the lightest, most tender green.

Today I took a few snaps of this pretty spot for the first time in four years. The transient quality of nature and its changing palette are a reminder that part of the beauty of this workd is that nothing stays the same, that we are allowed to change, and with each season there are new reasons to rejoice and grow.

Spring has me gaga over flowers. Ever since I made a few bridal bouquets for photo shoots I have had a craving to make more arrangements. I think playing with the colors and design of the arrangements is like playing with composition and color in photography, they are very similar. Here is my latest bouquet.
