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…

Additional family and children’s photos are available on our website, or visit our wedding portfolio.

They say the more you like someone, the prettier they become in your eyes. When I uploaded this session  to my computer I was  fascinated by the cuteness quotient of this brother and sister. These kids have become very dear to our family. They are close friends with my daughters and the foursome is together sometimes almost every day;  they are practically part of our family.

It was unusually warm this afternoon for a New Year’s Eve and we took advantage by ditching our jackets and kicking off our shoes, letting our toes have a feast on the wet grass. I am glad to enjoy this little bout of nice weather before the frigid temps coming in the next two months.

Here are my favorites. Enjoy your sneak peek guys!

And this is the last blog post / session¬†of 2010! What an amazing year this has been! A year of change, good change. I am so excited to see what 2011 brings, I have a feeling it’s going to be the best year ever!

Happy 2011 to all. May you always be blessed with love, health, and abundance :)

I had an amazing photo session with these two lovebirds yesterday! Not only are they are drop-dead-gorgeous couple but also so sweet and FUN! I couldn’t help but include some of our funny outtakes amongst the pretty shots.¬†It was extremely difficult to narrow it down to just a few because they were honestly all fabulous so forgive me for the length of this post :)

The setting is Hotel Palomar, one of my favorites in midtown Atlanta. Their modern yet inviting decor is breathtaking and the staff is top notch. This would be my choice of wedding venue if I were getting married in the city today; an intimate yet sophisticated retreat. The Hotel Palomar can accomodate up to 500 guests for cocktails and 370 for dinner. Catering is provided by their own Pacci Ristorante, which produces mouth-watering american and italian cuisine elegantly presented. For more information about having your wedding at this to-die-for venue please click on this link.

The exquisite gown is a Jasmine Haute Couture creation courtesy of Etain Bridal Boutique located in Ashley Park in Newnan. Etain offers a large and varied collection of designer bridal gowns in the South Atlanta area, but most important of all, they are NICE :) and down to earth. The ladies at Etain are committed to providing a personalized experience¬†in finding and purchasing the most important gown you’ll ever wear. They also offer upscale mother of the bride, bridal party, and prom gowns.

Now on to my faves from yesterday:

Don’t quite remember what started this…
