  1. styled collaboration // taryn andre

    Date 14 Oct 2016
    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – I love working with a team of passionate creatives to bring a shoot to life. Taryn is a traveling, free-spirited clothing designer who I’m so grateful to have met and had the opportunity to photograph, and with the lovely Corianne Cowan on makeup, this was one incredible collab. Until…

  2. sydney // a styled senior session

    Date 22 Jun 2016
    It’s hard to believe that this beautiful young lady is an upcoming high school senior! I’ve always wanted to work with seniors so when my stylist, Melanie, came to me with Sydney, I was all in! Edgy light combined Atlanta’s urban backdrop and Melanie’s eye for style provided the perfect opportunity for us to create some incredible senior portraits…

  3. eanes family // newborn

    Date 02 May 2016
    I’ve had a few instances lately where the degrees of separation make you wonder what’s really at work in the bigger picture of life. I won’t go into many specifics here, but Shelby works in the design industry and our conversation made me wonder if we had met in passing at another time a few…

  4. estella // graduate portraits

    Date 21 Mar 2016
    This beautiful young woman right here. She’s an incredible inspiration and a true testament that there’s no challenge too big to overcome, and certainly not your average graduate student looking for nice portraits to send out with her announcements (as she made it seem)! The day we met at a coffee shop for her…

  5. a collaboration with deja

    Date 08 Feb 2016
    You wouldn’t normally think that running a simple errand to buy envelopes at Paper Source would lead to meeting an awesome young woman like Deja, but that’s exactly what happened one day last fall. When I asked her if she was a model, she said no but that everyone says she should be.…

  6. michelle + brandon // proposal

    Date 28 Oct 2015
    I usually receive inquiries via email but this time, I received a call directly and I sure am glad I answered the phone! The guy on the other end told me he was going to propose to his girlfriend of five years and he wanted to have it documented. It’s probably a good thing he couldn’t…

  7. the sandman family

    Date 20 Aug 2015
    I just adore this family so much. They were the first family I photographed back in the fall of 2013 when I took the leap to go full-time, and since then, they’ve moved into a new, gorgeously renovated home and had another beautiful baby girl. It feels as though I’m growing as an artist as…

  8. a year with the rickerson family

    Date 05 Aug 2015
    This past year with the Rickersons was nothing short of fun. Their little guy, Reece, has such a big personality and it was great to watch him grow from a quiet, serious face babe to a social chatterbox! Needless to say, editing these sessions kept me smiling and laughing for hours…

  9. #superheroeswearRED

    Date 26 Jun 2015
    At the very end of last year, the Irving family welcomed their third child, a very incredible baby boy named Redden — a warrior, in fact. In the first few months of his life, Red has been through multiple chemo treatments, tests, doses of meds…things a baby should NEVER have to experience. But yet, somehow, someway, he continues…

  10. styled collaboration // terminus 330

    Date 18 Jun 2015
    Terminus 330 is a new venue on the west side of town on Marietta Street, and wow, what a great location! The open loft space has much to offer for those who want to blend the delicacy of a wedding with a raw, historic space, not mention all that dreamy natural light! From…

  11. a maternity session with the noonans

    Date 12 Jun 2015
    This family of three will soon become four, and this big sister is more than ready to fulfill her title role. The original idea for this shoot was to get some snuggly shots of Isabelle with momma’s belly but it was clear from the start that it was not going to happen easily! Those…

  12. elliott performance horses

    Date 03 Jun 2015
    This shoot was so, so good for my soul. Horses have been a part of my life since my single digit years, both in a casual and competitive sense. Ever since college, I have only ridden when I can or when I go home to visit, so this was a…

  13. rachel + will // married in saint simons island

    Date 27 May 2015
    Rachel has been a dear friend of mine for a few years now, and I’ll never forget the day when she told me that Will was the one. Her face lit up and her eyes sparkled, and I had a feeling too, even though I hadn’t even met him yet. It’s so great…

  14. a year with the hammad family

    Date 14 Apr 2015
    In January of last year, I photographed the Hammad’s newest addition at just nine days old. And every three months that followed, I was back to document another quarter milestone of their year-in-the-life newborn series. The story that developed from those five sessions is one that has made me smile countless times…

  15. welcome, sophie bea!

    Date 10 Apr 2015
    Last November, I made the trek to south Florida for a maternity session with my long time college friends, Heather and Evan. In mid-January, they welcomed their first baby, a beautiful girl named Sophie Bea. Just like my visit in November, we shot over the course of two days, which…

  16. painting the westside purple

    Date 09 Apr 2015
    Collaborations are my ultimate favorite type of shoot, and it’s the type of shoot that re-energizes me as an artist, not to mention just taking an afternoon to ‘play.’ This time, I was working next to incredible photographer, Michelle Osterhoudt, using this shoot as a test for us. Hair and makeup was done…

  17. pure joy by the irvings

    Date 14 Mar 2015
    Just a couple of short years ago, Beri and I were working together in a sustainably-charged architecture office, and today, we are both pursuing our passion of photography full speed ahead. Beri is an extremely talented photographer herself and when she reached out to me about photographing her family, I…

  18. a new home for aja and nicole

    Date 09 Mar 2015
    Aja and Nicole are a wonderful duo who just bought their first home together and wanted to commemorate the occasion with a ‘new home’ session. We met at the house the morning after they officially closed, with balloons and bubbly beverage in hand, and took advantage of the clean and…

  19. the ducat family

    Date 12 Feb 2015
    It was a chilly, gray day in December when I met the Ducats and it was just the right type of weather to warrant some coziness with a new little one. Heather and John welcomed another beautiful baby girl this past November and I was amazed at how easy going…

  20. a romanian baptism

    Date 05 Feb 2015
    Photographing cultural and religious events are very intriguing because it allows me to witness something new and exciting through my work – it’s truly an honor! This baptism was like none other I’ve ever witnessed, and it was so beautifully done. It took place in a quaint Romanian Orthodox chapel…

  21. beautiful adelaide

    Date 15 Jan 2015
    Have I told you lately how much I love documenting a growing family?! I’ve been photographing the Slide family since they were expecting their second child, and I couldn’t have been happier to photograph their third, a beautiful baby girl named Adelaide Mary. It’s always interesting to me to witness…

  22. it’s a wrap!

    Date 05 Jan 2015
    Twenty fourteen was quite a year in more ways than one, both personally and professionally. I get sappy when I think about all of the amazing people I’ve had the fortunate opportunity to work with and who’ve helped make this crazy dream of mine a reality. With the fall season…

  23. the appells plus one

    Date 17 Dec 2014
    In just a few short weeks, this gorgeous mama-to-be and her hubby will welcome a baby girl into the world. I’ve been fortunate enough to know Heather and Evan since our innocent college days and was elated when she broke the news about them expecting their first child in January…

  24. gloATL + cloth

    Date 29 Oct 2014
    This past August, I had an amazing opportunity to collaborate with writer, Abby Mae Carney, on a piece she was putting together about gloATL choreographer, Lauri Stallings, and the exhibition Lauri was currently preparing, Cloth. The transformation of the Goodson Yard space at The Goat Farm Arts Center, where the…

  25. the rickersons

    Date 22 Oct 2014
    I’d like to introduce the Rickerson family, starring Mr. Serious – more on that later. ;) Two years ago this November, Bridgette and Trip tied the knot at the historic Dekalb County Courthouse and this year, they wanted to return to the very same place with baby in tow. I’ve…
