Gainesville, Georgia Fresh 48 Hospital Session

When I was asked by another local (Buford, Georgia) photographer if I would be willing to take some photos of her new baby at the hospital, I was thrilled. You see when another photographer thinks that your work is good enough for their family, it speaks volumes. Of course I knew mom was a beauty and I’m a sucker for the little “fresh" babies so I couldn't wait for the day to come.

This little guy did not disappoint. He had the sweetest little chubby cheeks and the perfect round face. His skin was amazing and he looked so good in the blue wrap and cap that mom brought with her.

I loved seeing him in the little white t-shirt and hat that the Northeast Georgia Medical Center supplied. (it has to be my favorite look because it really allows you to focus on the baby and all their newborn goodness)

Go ahead and enjoy a few of my favorites from his second day here.

Chris and Amber Say, "I do!" The Grove, Maysville, Georgia

On Cinco De Mayo 2018, Chris and Amber were united before friends and family in a small chapel in Maysville, Georgia.

It was such a sweet and intimate ceremony where they exchanged their vows and shared a kiss.

I loved the simplicity and ease of the entire day. The cake and flowers were perfect and the weather was gorgeous. The sun peeked in and out of the clouds and made for great outdoor photos. The bridal party consisted of family and close friends. Laughter and smiles were shared by many....especially during the famous "shoe game". 

I was honored to be able to help celebrate their special day with my husband as my second shooter for the day. He always captures the best candids and close ups. 

Please enjoy some of my favorites from the day. 

Jinks Vow Renewal

This ceremony took place in downtown Gainesville, Georgia at the Quinlain Arts Center.

Marvin and Natalie have weathered the storms that life has thrown at them. The threat of a little rain never dampened their excitement for this special day. Vow renewals are such special ceremonies and we were honored to take part in this one. Sure the wind and sprinkles came and went, but the joy of the day shined as bright as the sun. The wedding party was a hoot, the reception was so fun, the bride was stunning and this couple is an absolute inspiration. We were blessed to take part in their wonderful day.

A+A Wedding

What a beautiful day in north Georgia. 

I met this lovely couple at a coffee shop in Buford and we talked all about their plans and dreams for their wedding. 

They were swooning over each other all day. And with a gal that gorgeous, I can see why he never took his eyes off of her. 

The ceremony was fun and even consisted of the blessings of the coins, the lasso and several other gifts. It was my first Catholic ceremony that included Mexican traditions. I don't think I was prepared for what all was to be included in the ceremony but I loved seeing the culture and the love of those who attended. 

And while we're here, might I just draw attention to that bridal party?! They were a lively crowd and kept me smiling throughout the day. 

I'd also like to take the time to thank my amazing second and assistant, Rachel, who helped me tremendously that beautiful fall day.
