Happy Hump Day everybody! Today, I’m sharing a love story that lead to a beautiful Middle Georgia wedding. Sunny and Bret met almost 4 years ago on Match.com. They became friends, and for their first date he picked her up from Dakota Ranch in his red ’97 Corvette. They fell in love at first sight and immediately became best friends. They were 800 miles apart, and in April 2016 she reached out to him to see if he was seeing anyone. She prayed that he would say no because she wanted to be with him! Well perfect timing it was, he was single! They began communicating again, and after just a few short months of visiting, he sold his corvette to move back to Georgia to be with her! They’ve been in love ever since. Even though he sold his favorite car, his big blue eyes and huge heart confirmed that he was the perfect match!
Fast forward to April 14, 2018. They vowed everlasting love to each other on Dakota Ranch once again! It was such a gorgeous wedding down to the details of the food. His brother is a gourmet chef and provided food, and I have to say it was so delicious! I am so glad I got to capture this special day for Sunny and Bret. They are such a happy couple, and I know they have such a magical future ahead.

Happy Monday everyone! I wanted to post these beautiful family portraits I did for The Maine Family. We have known them for a long time since we used to be neighbors and I also met Stacey since she is a nurse practitioner and have been friends ever since! My son, Shane, use to play with Jake when they were younger. Jake is a senior at Houston County and will be attending Georgia Southern in the fall while Madison is a junior at GSU as well! Jackson is huge into soccer so maybe we will see him playing the big leagues one day. They are such a sweet family and I’m so glad I got to photograph these beautiful memories that they can cherish forever. Family Photography can seem a little overwhelming with picking outfits and making everyone smile at the same time but they made it look so easy!
If you have any inquiries on your next Family Photography Session please see the Contact Page on my website and I will be getting back to you as quickly as possible! Spring is finally here and its the perfect time to get everyone dressed up for some gorgeous photos before the gnats come out LOL! This has been the busiest but exciting spring yet with so many senior and family sessions and several weddings too. I am definitely staying busy but it’s always worth it because its what I love to do! Make sure you reach out to me so I can plan your next session with you! I hope everyone has a blessed and stress free week ahead of them!!
Happy Tuesday everyone!! I wanted to share one of my favorite Middle Georgia couple sessions recently with this sweet couple who has inspired this post. They were such a great reminder to keep the love alive in marriage and after so many years they make it look so easy! I think its really important to remember to take time with the person you love and do things together to keep creating the bond that brought you together in the first place. Even when times get hectic its important to cherish the moments with the special people in our lives. Its was such a honor to be about to photograph these memories for them. I think its so special to see a couple still want to take couple portraits together because after awhile they just don’t always seem so important but they are and to the rest of your family to be able to cherish as well!
This is really was special to me because my husband and I have finally starting building our dream home and even though we don’t have children living with us anymore we plan to fill our home with lots of dogs,family and grandchildren! Its a start to a bunch of beautiful memories for the Sams and I seriously cant wait to share it with the people I love. This photo shoot goes to show its not just about the pictures but the memories that go along with it and its just one of the reasons why I love being a photographer.
If you have any inquires on doing a couple photo shoot please see the contact page on my website and I will be getting back to you as quickly as possible. Spring is in full bloom. Even though its been pretty chilly these few weeks, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it will stay warm soon so I can have beautiful spring photo shoots like this one!
Another beautiful Middle Georgia Senior Session starring Veronica! Veronica is graduating from Mercer University Law school, so this is a real celebration! What an amazing accomplishment for this bright young lady. She was such a pleasure to work with and has such a gorgeous smile. We did the photo shoot on her own stomping grounds at Mercer and the pictures came out stunning. I’m a huge fan of taking pictures at this beautiful campus so I was so excited to know she was graduating from there. Veronica has such a vibrant personality, so it was very easy capturing her excitement for graduating. I was so honored to be able to capture such an outstanding achievement for her and her family that I know will be cherished and was well deserved. We all can imagine how Law school can be so I hope she takes this summer to relax as much as possible!
This is the perfect time to book your senior session whether its high school or college. I would love to help photograph some amazing memories for your family to cherish too. The weather is finally starting to warm up and that is the best time for photo shoots, so make sure you see the contact page on my website and I will get back to you as quickly as possible! Now as for my life when I’m not being a nurse or photographer, I’m eagerly watching my dream home get built and I am so excited for it! I love to to do photo shoots out on our property because of the beautiful natural landscape. You can check out some photo shoots I have done out there here.
I hope everyone had a great start to the week but no worries we are almost half way to the weekend!!
This past fall I photographed a beautiful Middle Georgia Wedding for the Shaw’s and it turned out absolutely gorgeous. I’m not just saying that because I’m now related to them but it truly was stunning. Bri was such a gorgeous bride and can we talk about that smile? I’ve photographed this adorable couple back when they were still dating and its always such a blast. Jimmy may come off shy but he sure is goofy and knows how to make Bri laugh, and if I’ve learned anything, that’s a very important part of any marriage!
I was so excited to be able to capture these amazing memories for Bri and Jimmy at such a beautiful location. The wedding venue is a privately owned lake property in Macon and was the very first wedding put on there and everything went so smoothly! I’m praying that they will publicly start having weddings because this property is absolutely gorgeous! Bri’s stunning bouquet was made by Roy Lamb Floral Event Design and they are the prettiest flowers I’ve ever seen! This was such a beautiful fall wedding and I just cant get enough of these pictures!
If you have any inquires on photography for your special day please visit the contact section on my website and I will be getting back with you as soon as possible! I always love when I get the chance of shooting for a wedding because its what makes photography my passion by capturing all the special moments for your wedding and even the unexpected ones! Wedding season is on its way and I’m so excited for what is in store. Next spring my daughter will be getting married and I seriously cannot wait!! I hope everyone has a blessed week and had a great weekend!
This family photo shoot is so special to my heart because it is my first grandson, Barrett Edward Sams! My son and his lovely wife had their first child on October 18, 2017 and our lives have been so blessed every since! If anyone has been following “Bears” story, you know he didn’t have the simplest of starts into this world. He was born 3 months early and had to stay a few months in the NICU with his mom, dad, and the rest of the family by his side. He was released in time to come home for Christmas and has been doing nothing but growing and smiling ever since!
I decided to do this family photo shoot out at our land because I know very soon Bear will be running around playing in the fields. This will be the start of the beautiful memories we will make in our new home. He has been such a joy in everyone’s lives and I make my way over to see him every free second I have available. I can’t wait to take a thousand more pictures of him as he grows into the big boy we predict him to be one day. For now, I’m just going to snuggle up with him while he is still a sweet little chunk.
I absolutely love family photo shoots because these pictures will be cherished forever. If you have any inquires about scheduling your own family photo shoot please check out the contact form on my website and I will get back to you as quickly as possible. For now I’m going to go celebrate an early Easter dinner and hang out with the main attraction, Bear! I hope everyone has a blessed weekend and a very Happy Easter!
Its that time of the year again for all the eagerly waiting high school seniors to walk across the stage into adult hood (or so they think!) LOL. Senior sessions are always exciting for me because I get to document a new step in someone’s life. My beautiful model for my Middle Georgia Senior Session is Taylor who is graduating from Americas – Sumter High school this year. Congrats, girl!! Although Taylor was a bit shy at first by the time we were done shooting she could rock any vogue pose you gave her! One of the most interesting parts about being a photographer is getting people comfortable in front of the camera; adding some jokes and laughs always seems to do the trick. I always try and create a comfortable atmosphere for any client and it results in the most beautiful pictures that they will have for a life time.
It was such a beautiful day to have this session and I just adore these pictures. My husband and I recently bought land to build on and now its one of my favorite places to photograph my sessions, and so I’m always so excited when people love it out there too. Senior Session availability fills up quick so make sure you reach out to me on the website to secure a spot! I actually have my very own senior this year – my daughter, Allyson, who is graduating from Kennesaw State and awaiting her journey to Vet school. I understand the sense of accomplishment and how proud parents are for their kids. This is what makes senior sessions so special to me! I hope everyone has a fantastic Thursday – only one more day until the weekend!!
This may be one of the coldest starts to spring in Middle Ga than we have had before, but having this teen spring photo shoot with Savannah was so much fun. I always love having models who have a cool and unique sense of style. They always make for an awesome photo shoot! We chose the photo shoot location in Downtown Macon for a very young and urban vibe. As a photographer, I love capturing the beauty of the models in my shoots and is was very easy to do with Savannah. Can you believe she is only 15?! She is growing into a beautiful young lady, and I cant wait to take more pictures with Savannah. I’m always so excited for single photo shoots because you can always find places and backdrops that really capture the essence of the person. I feel like this shoot turned out beautifully. Savannah is not only a gorgeous girl but she is extremely musically talented! She is using these photos as her album cover and I cant wait to take a listen.
A huge thank you to Savannah for being such a great model! If you have any inquiries on a photo shoot please see the contact form on my website and I will be getting back to you as quickly as possible! Spring is in full bloom so now is the perfect time for any family photo shoots and senior sessions. Time available fills quickly so reach out to me because I would love to hear from you. I hope you all love these photos as much as I do! I’m getting back into blogging so get excited!!
Introducing Mr and Mrs Davenport! We enjoyed every detail at this gorgeous Middle Georgia wedding at the lovely Plantation Farms. Kristin and Joel are a couple we will not soon forget! I love watching the interaction between a newly wed couple. Watching the kissing, laughing and true love is so beautiful. Every moment of each wedding is so special and so awesome to experience. Thankyou Mr and Mrs Davenport and congratulations on your new life together!
When Cindy told me she wanted to do a family photo session with her mother, I had no idea how much fun it would actually be! Fran has the most amazing smile and love of life. Her laughter and humor kept us all in stitches the entire photo session. Capturing precious moments like this is why I love photography. We should all enjoy each and every moment we have been blessed with like Ms Fran! Thank You for sharing your laughter with me!
