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.

I adore this couple. They are one of the sweetest, kindest, most down to Earth people I have worked with. Kristy is a southern girl with a modern twist: polite, outgoing, and always with a positive attitude, but she is also extremely humble and compassionate. Chris is just laid back, go-with-the flow, and a complete gentleman. He’s told me on a few occasions how excited he is to marry his girl and I just love him for that.

I was shocked to see how nervous they were at their photo session. They are not crazy about being photographed and were happy that they were getting to practice before their wedding. The way these turned out I say you guys passed the test ;)

Did I mention I adore these two?

Chris and Kristy are both braniacs. She is is doing her doctorate in pharmaceutical science and he is a high school math teacher. So we started our session with a little scholastic fun!

and Chris is a baseball junkie and coaches little league, so we headed to the ball field for some more shots…

Chris, after seeing the following shot you shall no longer be nervous in front of the camera ;)

Kristy, you are simply breathtaking…

Lalala…love

The small bridal cottage at Meadowlark Gardens was a whirlwind of garment bags, feminine laughter and floral perfume as I returned from photographing the groom and his family. “West is dying to see you” I told Meagan and her mega-watt smile beamed unabashedly, and nervously. The day was racing up to this moment when they would see each other in private for the first time. Trying to approach it calmly, delaying it almost an impossibility. Meagan and West are so drawn to each other, almost magnetically. This energy permeated through their first look, and their beautiful wedding this past weekend. Looking back through the photos I could feel it in every image. The way they look at each other just radiates love.

Here is a small peek into their day…

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!

Sometime in mid-February, my family and I get desperate for warmer weather. The holidays have passed, we get a little bit of snow to fulfill our winter cravings, and then we suddenly become impatient with the cold temperatures and the dull, grayish landscape and start dreaming of hikes, dips in the lake, and bonfires.

As if our prayers had been answered, we have had a gorgeous week, warm enough to spend our days outside. We’ve taken bike rides, dipped our feet on the lake (although it’s still freezing), and rolled around on the grass, wishing it back to life.

Some early morning photos of my kids and their friend enjoying our mild February:

And, as you can imagine, I got a big kick out of this… my little budding photographer, just like mama :)

Until next time! :)

I have so much respect and admiration for love that lasts a lifetime.

This past weekend I photographed my good friend’s parents who are celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary very soon. These images are pure beauty to me. They are so happy, and at peace, living a life surrounded by kids and grandkids who adore them. I wanted their session to reflect this stage in their lives. Here are my favorites…

Today I went on a little expedition with one of my 2011 brides to visit her venue: Meadowlark Gardens in Griffin, GA. The place is beautiful! Even with all the naked trees and ice covering the walkways I can just see how gorgeous this venue will be in the spring and I can’t wait!

This is an awesome group of girls. Ever since I booked this wedding last year Meagan and her family have been so welcoming and sweet, I feel like I’m part of the family. I’m thrilled that I will be shooting this wedding and can’t wait to share!

From today:

I love kids. I remember being in such a rush to grow up and now I long for the freedom of being a child. We think we’ll be free when we reach adulthood but little do we know that childhood is true freedom. I wish I could get that message across to my kids: enjoy that feeling of complete adventure and spontaineity that you have right now, absorb every minute of your innocence, but I sound like an adult when I say those things.

It took about a millisecond to convince these kids to lay on the grass and roll down the slope of their backyard; their parents are probably going to remember me for a long time thanks to my little idea. :)  If I could postpone twilight and hadn’t had 20 lbs. of photographic equipment on me, I would have rolled down the hill with them (again, adult thinking). In retrospect, I wish I would have and then their parents would remember me for a long time as a complete lunatic.

These kids have the most amazing personalities; we hit it off right away and although I didn’t roll down the hill with them we did hold hands and skipped down the road together. Here are some of my favorites from our afternoon.

As a photographer, I am always behind the camera and seldom in front of the lens. So, determined to get some family photos this past weekend, I took the DIY route and captured some fun and cute moments of my troup. Here are my favorites:
