Greenhouse Mini Session Event | Family Photographer Acworth Georgia

It's no secret that I love flowers.  I love all things wild and beautiful, so when the opportunity came up to shoot a one day event at a private farm and greenhouse, I was all in.  It started out a bit wet from the generous rain we've been having but it made for a perfect day for portraits for the families that joined me on location!

Adorable Miss B celebrated her 9th month with a family session at the Greenhouse and Farm, and she enjoyed exploring all the flowers, the strawberry patch, and even the rooster that was hanging out nearby (safely in his private coop).  Could she smile any wider?  I think her adorable grin tells the whole story.

Maternity Photography Session | Woodstock, Georgia

This gorgeous family made my evening so perfect!  They will soon be welcoming a precious new life and wanted to document their first family portraits, and likely their last- as a family of three.  We chose the Farm location because mom requested a gorgeous grassy field with beautiful golden light.  Once again, this location proved to be perfect.  Lots of room for little Miss to explore and for the family to enjoy soaking up the sun together in the last remaining weeks as a family of four.

Lifestyle Family Photographer | Extended Family Portrait Session in Woodstock, Georgia

One of my most beloved families came to me to do an extended family session.  I've been photographing sweet Linc since he was 4 months old, and he is celebrating his first birthday!  We selected the gorgeous Farm location in Woodstock for their session so we would have plenty of room to roam and explore together.

It proved to be the perfect location for the little man to safely explore and lots of gorgeous green grass.  Grandma and Grandpa loved every minute snuggling with him too!

Spring has finally made its way here to Georgia!  After several attempts to reschedule our session due to rain, we finally got a beautiful evening- And, let me tell you- it was worth the wait! 

There is absolutely no place like this private farm in Woodstock for a little boy to explore.  We picked flowers for mommy, sang and danced, found "secret" trails and even got to play on the tractor after we finished our session. 

We had such a great evening together, and I am so happy that this sweet family chose me to take their very first ever family portraits!  We couldn't have had a more beautiful location or day for our adventure.  And I am pretty sure a certain little boy slept very well that night after logging miles of smiles!

Family Photographer | Fall Family Portraits in Woodstock Georgia

Fall family portrait season is underway!  I absolutely love this time of year- I get to photograph so many beautiful families in the perfect Georgia weather.

The leaves are turning, families are going to the pumpkin patch together, and the annual Pumpkin Spice Latte- Who doesn't love fall?

I really love seeing all my families again and meeting some new faces.

The best part?  Just playing together and getting to experience how they all love and care for each other.

I love the natural emotional connection between new parents and their babies. No need for props or special poses... the Love makes all the magic we need.

Such sweetness. I love the way he curled up for me. I think it was soothing to him to be swaddled tightly, with his little legs snugly pulled in, as he was in the womb. 2017-04-20_0002.jpg 2017-04-20_0004.jpg

Such sweet perfection. 2017-04-20_0010.jpg

Angie + Derek | Maternity Photographer, Canton & Woodstock Georgia

Happy Mother's Day!

I cannot think of a better way to honor all the things that being a mom means any more than sharing this celebration beautiful of Motherhood!

Angie is expecting her second child, a sweet baby girl.

She had a vision for her session- it need to be romantic, feminine, and in the water.

Immediately I was hooked.

I've been wanting to do a styled maternity session for some time, and our vision for the session was the same-

Romantic, dreamy and focused on the connection between mother and child.

I love this image of Angie and her son, Caleb. It has a very "earth mother" feel to it.

I loved being pregnant. It is such a time to embrace the beauty of your ever-changing body and

to savor the tiny flutterings of the new life growing inside you.

I provided the blush maternity gown, handmade from one of my favorite vendors on

http://www.etsy.com.  The color and fit complimented her skin and blossoming belly beautifully!

I hand crafted her floral crown just for this session.  I love flowers of all kinds and so enjoyed putting together a special piece for Angie to wear.

I selected a location local to Woodstock that I knew would have warm and delicious light in the evening.  We couldn't have been happier!

The evening sun offered a perfect backlight to our warm and dreamy session.

Big brother to-be, Caleb, listens to sister's heartbeat.

Oh, Momma.  You have a beautiful son.

He has the sweetest, most tender personality.  My daughter, Ava, often joins me as my assistant on outdoor shoots.

She and Caleb made instant friends.  He watched her every move and she played with him while Mom and Dad enjoyed some special moments together.

Perfectly radiant little momma.

Isn't she gorgeous?! Such perfect skin and just a radiantly beautiful momma-to-be.

I love how we see a little peek of that perfect little tummy!

Funny story - When we moved into the water for the last portion of our session, I helped Angie into the river.

I got in ahead of her to make sure we had good footing.  Just before I shot this image, I stepped backwards in the river and into a gaping hole. Where I had been knee deep in the water, I suddenly found myself with water above my waist and my camera overhead! One more step in the other direction and I sank even lower. I got soaking wet but you bet your buttons that my camera didn't get a drop on it.  Everything else can go down, but this girl is going to save her camera!

 Isn't she just radiant?

I just loved this session and this precious family.  Angie had such a wonderful vision for her maternity session and

I was so excited to bring it all to life for her.
