The NeSmiths | Athens maternity session

For quite some time, the words have failed me as I have tried to find a way to narrate this post. Every couple, family and individual I photograph has a story and I want to be sure I can do these stories justice when introducing their images. But this set is different.

You see, this couple has been in my life for over a decade. We have laughed, cried, soul searched and celebrated together - more than once. I know more about their journey than I do most clients, and my investment runs deep. I know the determination, the pain, the losses and the victories they faced on their path to parenthood. Naturally so, being able to capture this miraculous time in their life means more to me than words can ever illustrate. We squeezed this session out Charlotte made her entrance into the world less than a week later! Charlotte - check out your parents. Their fierce passion and confidence will give you an amazing life, and I cannot wait to see it unfold!                      xo     -Aunt Sarah

Jules & Brendan engagement | Atlanta Wedding Photographer

If I had to choose a single adjective to describe this couple, it would have to be 'spirited'. They both radiate an infectious zest for life that you can't help but be smacked right in the face with when entering their orbit. I love that smack, an instant mood elevator.  Most couples I work with tend to have a yin and yang type of personality equation - one always a bit more vibrant than the other. But when it comes to Jules and Brendan, you get an equal dose of the most refreshing warmth and joy.  Documenting this twice between the proposal itself and their engagement photos made me one happy photographer.  I know these two will love each other well and continue to create a bright light in life and marriage!

Rejoicing in marriage | Stone Mountain Session

Thank you to MAGNOLIA ROUGE for featuring this session! Click to view.

Marriage is many things. It is comfort, it is sharing, it is compromise and understanding. Warm, joyful and even a little bit testing at times. Maybe even daily? She says winking. I think recognizing all of the hard parts alongside benefits is always healthy, so long as you use that as a tool in the learning process. But focusing on the positive is perhaps the greatest tool we possess in cultivating valuable relationships. Reason number one that I was so happy to document this married pair as they simply carved out time to focus on who they are today, together - on camera. 

We bounced around Stone Mountain park, close to where Taylor and Kurt both grew up (the are high school sweethearts!) and I snapped away as the two shared jokes and sweet kisses. The ease in which they fall into one another in laughter and embrace speaks volumes, so fun to see.

A word from Taylor (wedding planner extraordinaire!)"Marriage and growth between a husband and wife is something I believe should be celebrated both often and well. While we may still be considered "newlyweds" after two and a half short years of marriage, I love to look back at photos together and reminisce on the changes and development in our relationship since our wedding day. Capturing each season together creates tangible memories for us as a couple and we value that as a token of sharing and reflection. Enriching our marriage by spending quality time together truly is my greatest joy and I love to build him up and encourage him in every day life.
