I don’t even know where to begin! When I walked into the bridal suite and saw Shelley standing there surrounded by her ladies with a HUGE smile plastered on her face - I knew it was going to be a magical day! And it sure was!
Yes, you read that correctly! Lacey and Matt have known each other since the beginning of their lives! Their families have been friends for generations. They grew up in a small farming town and that’s just how it is there - the roots are deep and friends become more like family! Although Matt and Lacey’s story starts off very bitter sweet but was perfectly planned out by God! Lacey and Matt’s moms are best friends and both ended up expecting babies at that same time. Matt was born on February 13th, 1980. A couple of months later, Lacey’s mom and dad suffered a loss that too many are forced to face with the death of their baby, Judson on his due date.
Elizabeth & Dalton’s Indian Springs State Park Wedding
It was a perfect fall day! The leaves had just started turning their beautiful fiery colors and the sun was shining for us! Elizabeth and Dalton were nervous but so excited to see each other for their first look! You could just see all the anxiety leave them both once they hugged one another for the first time on their big day.
Well, her birthday is really tomorrow BUT we (the internet) are gonna celebrate her today! I have spent lots of time photographing this incredible family and the one thing that I just LOVE about them are their SMILES! Plus, (okay there is really more than one thing) their babes are the most joyous children! They give me the sweetest smiles and are just so mannerly too!
I met Courtney earlier this year when we both started working out at L3 Fitness here in Social CIrcle. Her and her family had just moved here and started their careers. Courtney’s smile and sweet personality will light up a room! I’m so thankful to have met her!! She recently shared with me, more about her and her husband and how they met.
The leaves had just started turning their beautiful colors in my back yard when we finally got to do the Brame family’s session! I was so thankful because this was our third attempt at getting their session on the schedule due to weeks of rain. Levi was loving the farm! He enjoyed chasing the chickens around. I just loved that we get to share our farm and that my friends and clients get to enjoy it too!
Aren’t they just the most beautiful little babes?! Their Grammy, Ms. Donna, is our nanny. She surprised her daughter Amanda with a newborn session with me. I was so honored that she wanted me to document her sweet grand babies!! I had a wonderful time getting to know Amanda and Jason, the parents. ;) It turns out Jason and I lived right down the road from one another growing up in Stone Mountain and attended rival high schools in Gwinnett. It’s such a small world y’all!!
I met this amazing lady over the summer at our workout class. Her and I were running one day in the parking lot and were talking about waking up early, like really early so we would have more time to ourselves before our babes woke up! lol We needed more “ME” time. We became each other’s accountability partners and would text each other every morning at 5:30am to make sure we were both up and at em’! It was so awesome and I miss that so much!
Erin woke up on her wedding day knowing it was going to be one of the most magical day’s of her life! She felt the calm, the excitement, the nerves, all rushing through and it was going to be an amazing day! As I was driving to the Loew’s Hotel in Atlanta, where I knew they wanted to share their first look on the tree lined streets, I started thinking about a plan B because it was raining cats and dogs.
This sweet babe was born 11 weeks early and weighed only 1lb. 15oz. For almost three months she fought hard in the NICU. You may remember her big brother, Lathaniel. He’s a fighter too! I know there are so many woman suffering from being trapped in the NICU with their precious babes. That’s why I asked Dallas if she wouldn’t mind sharing her story.
