I ran into Bethany at a Halloween party. I used to work with her when I worked at Best Buy.
She is recently engaged to a wonderful gentleman named Josh. They are a great couple together.
A very rainy Sunday we decided to do a small shoot at Roswell Mill. They brought their pup, Leo, along. He is the most precious Dalmatian that I have ever met. I will be doing their wedding in April and I cannot wait! So, that means more photos to come of this lovely couple.
Happy First Birthday to little miss Ruby!
Erin and Blake had their maternity photos done at the mill off Sixes Rd in Canton, Georgia.
We went back to that spot for Ruby's first birthday photo shoot.
Ruby is all smiles all of the time... (well most of the time!)
All you have to do is sing "The Wheels on the Bus" and she is good to go!
Her favorite word to say is, "HI!" and she will wave, as well.
Below are photos from her first birthday shoot as well has her party. The cake was made by Rachael from Rach Makes Cakes. Her cakes are some of the best cakes I have ever eaten. And all super cute!
Go take a look at her website!
I had 5 shoots this past weekend and the first was a gorgeous morning christmas card shoot.
Blair and I have done a good amount shoots together, including their wedding. This one was a lot of fun.
She is a very creative woman. You should all go check out her Etsy site @ BlairBaileyDesign Especially if you want to buy some creative Christmas gifts for the coming up season! Her and Dustin brought their dog, Baxter, along. He did such a great job!
David & Suzanne's wedding was absolutely beautiful. The weather was perfect and her property is to die for!
They bought an old farm house out in Jackson, Georgia, and renovated it. She actually has a blog of her own about the house and everything they have done on the farm. You can see that here: http://www.suzanneduda.typepad.com
They are actually thinking about turning this into a venue for renting out for weddings and special events. I would book that place in a heartbeat. So many picturesque nooks and areas on that farm land.
I got there and Suzanne and David were both together. After shooting so many super traditional weddings it was nice to be a little out of the norm and out of my element. We did photos before the ceremony.... and then more after.
As they did their tour of the farm house... I actually had the opportunity to do a mini engagement session for her son, Christopher, and his fiancé, Katie. They are living in Louisiana, so it was a pleasure to have met them. What a cute couple they are.

Seattle was a short trip but a blast! I loved every minute of it. I flew out there Thursday night and stayed until Tuesday.
Friday my aunt, Tonya, and I went to the EMP museum and drove around the city.
Lounged outside in the beautiful weather and played with Sleater & Ruby.
We had dinner with some of my cousins that I hadn't met until now! Very nice people!
Saturday we went to Alki Beach for brunch. I got out of the car and my phone dropped in the sewer. Thankfully I was due for an upgrade.. So we made an unexpected trip to AT&T to get a new phone.
I had everything backed up so I didn't lose anything. (Back up your stuff people!)
I put my toe in the Pacific ocean for the first time. I love the west coast!
Sunday Tonya, Shireen & I went to the San Juan Islands/ Friday Harbor and went whale watching.
We were literally on a boat all day long. And OF COURSE! the only person on the boat to get sick was the person sitting behind me. I had to give her mother a dramamine and she was good. Never fails.
We saw a bunch of Orca whales and the sunset was gorgeous.
Monday we played tourist and went all around the city like the market, the Fremont troll, the house boats.
The city was beautiful as was the weather. I would move there in a heartbeat... (don't tell my grandfather that!)
Most of the photos were taken with my Canon.. some my phone.
Kurt Kobain's guitars and sweaters
My fan girl self giggled in excitement when I saw these two.

Don't let the photo fool you... Razzle is a fat cat!
Right after my phone fell in the sewer!
