Atlanta Family and Pet Portraits | Routledge Family

Just as the sun was rising last weekend I got to meet up with the Routledge family in Piedmont Park for some family portraits.  It was a dewy morning, but we had fun letting their son interact with their dogs and capturing some fun family portraits!  Special thanks to the Routledge family for meeting me so early! I think we got some great shots!

Atlanta Dog Photographer | Fun Day on the River

It was just a few weeks ago that I shared the first part of my photo session with these six amazing labs from Cumming, GA!  Now, we are back with some Chattahoochee River fun.  We met in Atlanta down on the river, and on a weekday morning this was the perfect time for some off-leash play!  If I were being honest, I would also say that this was one of my favorite morning portrait sessions.  This dog photography session blew my mind, I left feeling so blessed to get to do what I love each day!

I hope that you enjoy some of my favorite shots of these guys running, playing, and doing what labs love…swimming!

Can you believe that two of these guys are up for adoption?!?  They sure are!  Both Emme and Candy, shown just above in the center of the car, are still looking for their forever homes!  If you are interested you can email Atlanta Lab Rescue at info@atlantalabrescue.com for more details…make sure to ask about them by name, and if you are looking to add 2 to your pack it would extra special if these two ended up in the same home! 🙂

It is my goal to showcase your dogs personality in images that are candid, fun, and worthy of display around your home.  If you are interested in a pet or family portrait please email me today via the CONTACT button above.  Thanks y’all!

Roswell, GA Dog’s Life

One of the benefits of living just north of Atlanta is the ability to be so close to the city, but just far enough away that we still have stars in the sky at night, and less traffic!  We moved here just over 4 years ago, and we LOVE Roswell!  Roswell has great restaurants, outdoor living, and activities in just walking distance from our house!

I got outdoors with Mason and Magnolia for National Walk Your Dog Week, yesterday and we checked out Historic Downtown Roswell.  I was excited to capture some photos for DogVacay’s Dog Hometown Photo Campaign.  This was the perfect day to showcase how much we love different activities in Roswell.

What a great day to be outside with my dogs!  I would like to thank the folks at DogVacay.com for asking me to participate in their campaign during National Walk Your Dog Week!

ABJ Photography Portrait Products | Photo Books

As a photographer, and someone who has based my business on providing images for my clients that they want to immediately display around their home, I am always searching for the right kind of products.  Our photo books have really captured the essence of our portrait sessions, and I wanted to share them on the blog because they have become so popular among my clients.

I have two styles of photo books.  My first option is  the number one seller.  I fell in love with this hardcover book because I wanted one for myself!  As I shared in my story, we lost Tess in 2012, and what I wanted was to have a book printed, something that I could display in my home, memories within reach…this coffee table style book was just what I was looking for!  This hardcover book is 8.5 x 6.5 and comes custom made by ABJ Photography.  The binding canvas colors range from basic khaki to beautiful blues or gray.

This option may not be for everyone, but for someone like me who likes to journal this means personal memories also included with the images.

My second option is great as a brag book.  This book is easy to carry in your purse to share with friends and family.  This soft cover book comes in two sizes, 6.5 x 6.5 or 9 x 6.5.  If you need a more economical option, but still want the ability to hold these images and memories in your hand, these are a great option!

ABJ Poduct Books10Recently I was able to surprise a client with her own photo book of her golden retriever!  This was a gift from a happy client and a cherished memory book her her fur-baby!  Just before I was able to wrap it up, I snuck some photos with my iPhone. 🙂  I thought that book came out amazing, and from the tears in my clients eye, I know it meant a lot to her as well.
