This session was different altogether.
Sarah's pup, Slugger, was recently diagnosed with cancer of the nerves.
They are only giving him 3-6 months to live. Slugger is a rescue dog that Sarah saved in college. He has been by her side through all of college, marriage, and now even her first born, Sully. He is one of the sweetest pups. She wanted to have one more big family shoot. Her wish was granted. Not only that, I also did a double shoot. Andres served with Steve. Andres, Danae, and their son Landon were in town for Chicago visting. I squeezed in a family shoot for them, too. This is the first family session they have had since Landon was born. Now she is expecting baby number 2! Fortunately, you cannot tell the day was super hot! Poor Sarah had a crazy day before the shoot. Sully actually got stung on the cheek right before the session began. Half way through, the pups jumped into the pretty murky pond. What else would a dog want to do when they are hot? Regaurdless, I feel like if I didn't tell you these small details, you probably wouldn't have noticed in the slightest. Take a look!
Haley & Will's wedding was at Brasstown Valley Resort & Spa in Young Harris, Georgia. It was absolutely gorgeous! But rather hot...
The wedding ceremony was at sunset. The entire day was a scorcher.
After the ceremony and the wedding party photos, they actually had to cut the cake before anything else due to the cakes melting!
I asked, why a summer outdoor wedding? Will's family is from South Africa and this was the only time they could make it. Despite the heat, it was a gorgeous day!
I had a little help from my friend Rohan at this wedding. I definitely needed a second shooter at this one and I am so glad I did. His details on all the little things are great! I appreciate him so much for helping me!
There is something about newborn photos and black and white that go hand in hand. Baby Emery is here and has a family full of love! Addie and Michael are going to be the best big siblings. Congratulations to Michael and Rhonda for making such beautiful babies!
It's crazy to think that Maverick is already a year old! It seems like yesterday I was doing his newborn shoot. Happy 1st birthday little man! We went to Berry College for this shoot. Olivia had her first birthday photos done here as well. Keeping up with the tradition. This little dude is so stinking cute and full of personality. I cannot wait for family fall photos! The Barnett family has always been one of my favorite families to work with. Always a fun time. They always go the extra mile to get their kids to laugh and smile
