Weber Family Session – Smyrna | Atlanta Family Photographer

One day this fall, I spent the afternoon doing a photo session at Taylor-Brawner Park in Smyrna with one of my college roommates, Carson, and her adorable little family. It’s amazing to see how one of my first college friends has become such a wonderful mom to two precious little ones in the past few years. Thank you to the Webers for  letting me document this moment in time for you guys. You all did a most fantastic job!

And yes, the kids’ eyes really are that blue.

Shannon + David’s Engagement Session – Vinings | Atlanta Engagement Photographer

Shannon and David are getting married in Atlanta next June, and when I decided to embark on this photography journey, I immediately reached out to ask if I could do an engagement session with them. They graciously agreed, and here we are!  They were so easy and up for whatever, whether that be balancing on railroad tracks, lying on the ground, or trying to fit their heads into what I’m sure is the TINIEST football helmet ever made.  It was hard to choose my favorite, so here are several from our afternoon session around Vinings. Can’t wait for the wedding!
