I was so excited to meet with my friend Lyle and his family for a winter portrait session.  And when I say winter….I mean winter….it was sleeting during most of our session!

I met Lyle a while ago when looking for a landscape designer and installer after we purchased our home last year.  He owns a company called Southern Trillium based here in Atlanta and does AMAZING work.  Southern Trillium specializes in residential landscapes, including stonework, pavers, retaining walls, rain harvesting, ponds, streams and waterfalls, all types of plant installation, custom wood gates, fences, and garden structures.  If you need any help making your yard into your sanctuary give him a call!  Lyle and his crew will help design and install your project to make sure that no detail is overlooked.  If you would like to view some photos of their work you can see it HERE.

Many thanks to Lyle and Hannah (and Hannah’s aunt who had warm homemade blueberry muffins when we arrived to begin our session).  : )

Hannah and Lyle both have incredible blue eyes…

Hannah…..you are FIERCE in this picture girl!

I love this shot.  It’s just so natural and relaxed.

OK ladies…..I know you are all jealous.  This my husband playing uber photo assistant.  Yes, he is in the sleet, waving around a stuffed animal to get the baby’s attention (Lyle’s niece), while wearing a quilt, and did I mention in the sleet???  I love you Rob!

A fun casual shot of Lyle (we were hiding from the sleet under the pavilion and saw this truck).  I love this truck!

Lyle’s sweet little niece.  What a precious little girl…

Thanks for a fantastic session Hannah and Lyle.  I hope to work with you again in the future!

You may remember Scott and Amber from a previous engagement session here on the blog a while back.  A photographer truly can’t be more blessed to have such a gorgeous couple as clients……. and they couldn’t BE more charming.  I know, I know…..good looks and good personality????

I met with Amber a few weeks ago during some of the last weeks of her first pregnancy and glowing is a complete understatement.  She was no less than a beam of light!  Just earlier today I was able to lay eyes on their precious pink little bundle for the first time….she is exactly one week old today.  Best of luck to the new family.  Here are a few photos from our maternity session:

The following shots were all Amber’s idea…..she wanted some pics of her with her favorite pregnancy cravings…..I love it!

Give that sweet little bundle a kiss for me guys!

One year of wedded bliss is upon us.  June 21, 2008 in Cashiers, North Carolina we were scurrying around tieing up last minute items and greeting out of towns guests, friends, and family.  Hair was horrifically styled (which should never be discussed again : )), undone, and redone.  I stepped into my dress, Rob into his suite, and  went to meet with Parker (insanely talented photographer and a big inspiration to start taking my photography seriously) at the bridge.  Only problem was…..there were two bridges in the area…..I was at one……Rob went to the other.  Thanks to my older brother that clued him in and sent him to the right bridge!  Below are the pictures that Parker took before the wedding.  Let me repeat…..none of these are photos I took, but if you are looking for the nicest, most incredible, fabulous photographer give Parker a call.  He won’t let you down. And as for my husband, well….he’s taken…and I’ll fight you for him!

While passing by a garden on the way to our first photo destination, we had to stop and give our bride/groom version of “American Gothic”

We were lucky enough to have some of the most beautiful natural settings to photograph in…..the mountains up in North Carolina just really find a relaxing, calming, place deep in my soul.  Rob and I both love it up there!

Nothin’ like swinging on a tree swing by a lake in your wedding dress to calm those preceremony jitters!  After we took some photos it was back to the house for the ceremony.  Buchanan Chimney Garden, just adjacent to our family home in Cashiers, NC was the site of the ceremony.  It cold not have been more gorgeous.

Of course, the dogs were the ring bearers.  They did a fabulous job….meet Frei (the little guy) and Charlie Brown.

Rob’s mom and Dad……his mother smiled like this throughout the entire ceremony!  So cute!

Weddings are intense and frought with little details that can go wrong throughout the day (ie. your wedding coordinator collecting her check the day before the wedding and then not showing up for your wedding day without explanation).  We certainly had our share of mishaps.  That being said, the day ended with two people, in love, exchanging vows, and getting married.  Rob is the most wonderful man I could ever hope to have in my life.  He is my calming force, my rock, my kitchen McGyver, my pack mule, my concert buddy, scrim bitch (inside joke), my sweet sappy movie watching friend, and the love of my life.  Happy Anniversary honey.  I’d marry you all over again today.

Many thanks again to Parker J for all of the wonderful images from our wedding.  Please check out his fine art photography here.

Meet Amber and Scott!  I’m so happy to introduce you to this fabulous couple.  Amber is a personal trainer and I had the misfortune…..I mean …..uh…..fortune of meeting her via her business Cafe Physique.  I signed up for a regular butt kicking twice a week for several months prior to my wedding with Amber.  Café Physique specializes in studio and in-home personal training, wellness coaching, private yoga & pilates and customized nutrition counseling.  Their programs are designed to meet the healthy lifestyle needs of clients in the privacy of their homes or in Café Physique’s private in town studio.  She will turn your living room into a state of the art training facility!

Amber and Scott- I’m so glad you two have found one another.  You were such a blast to work with and obviously have a strong love for one another.  Enjoy your images below!
