Harper | Atlanta Dog Photographer

Say hello to Harper!  Another amazing Atlanta Lab Rescue dog, and beautiful chocolate lab!  Harper and her mama met me down by the river for our portrait session.  Harper loves the water, and loves to play ball!  I am so happy that she will also be in our Atlanta Lab Rescue 2014 calendar!

During our session Harper was so good, walking off leash on the trails and being brave even thought the river water was higher than normal!  As you will see she is a TRUE water dog!  Don’t you just LOVE that quality about labs?These shots are always some of my favorite – the owner with the ball, or favorite toy – the dog’s eyes always light up!I had to share this photo…the head dunk!  How many of you have dogs who do this?  Mine will for the ball, but even for a rock, or leaf, haha!

Harper is a happy girl!  I am excited to see her again at ALR events, and show her off in our calendar!

Atlanta Lab Rescue Foster Dogs | Champ + Bailey

Meet my handsome foster babies Champ and Bailey!  They are from the Atlanta Lab Rescue and they need a spectacular home!  I mean, I may not give them up.  You may have to pry them out of my grip!  But, I will part with them only for the very best, and these two boys certainly deserve it!

Bailey and Champ are house trained, they do not make messes, or play with anything other than dog toys.  They are around 3 years old and fully vetted.  These boys know all the basics and will do anything for a snuggle and ear rub!  I cannot believe anyone could part with them, they are the perfect pair!  They are great around kids, love to snuggle in a dog bed together, love to play fetch, and so much more…

Bailey photo bomb!

This is our best attempt at getting all our pups in a photo…Bailey and Champ just love to be close, and it is hard to take a step back for the shot without them coming over for love.  And, well Mason is so nervous about doing the right thing he is watching David out of the corner of his eye!  Oh, and then there is Maggie…I know, perfect. 🙂

Bailey has the BEST smile!  He is playful and gentle…usually the last one to want to lay down…he does not like to miss any extra love!  Bailey is great off leash and knows many commands.  He is the quintessential Golden Retriever, he is all love!  

All my Atlanta Lab Rescue babies! (Champ, Bailey, and Magnolia)

Old Yeller…Oh, I mean Champ…is a gentle giant.  This sweet boy loves to play ball, sleep at your feet, and clean everyone’s food bowls!  Champ is the kindest soul and very interested in everything you do.  As you can see he is PURE lab goodness, he has all the perfect lab attributes.  When we picked up Champ on Sunday David was talking to him and said, “Well, if this is the Atlanta Lab Rescue…YOU are the Atlanta Lab!”  

These boys deserve a wonderful home to call their own.  They MUST be adopted together, but I am sure you can see why, they are the sweetest buddies you will ever meet.  PLEASE share this post with your friends that may be looking for the perfect companions!  And, you can fill out an application over on the Atlanta Lab Rescue website: http://www.labrescueofatlanta.com/howto.htm

 

Nikki & Steve | Atlanta Engagement Photographer

I am about to blow up this blog with the most amazing Atlanta engagement session photos!  Wow, I am SO excited for Nikki and Steve!!  I am so thankful that they made the trip from New York to Atlanta for this session, and I am even more excited now to see them this fall in Asheville for their wedding at the Grove Park Inn!

Looking back through these photos I can relive this amazing Spring afternoon, and I want to do it over, and over, and over again!  Was it the amazing weather?  The amazing couple? Their adorable doggie?  Or maybe all three!?!  All I know is that we had a great time, I think we got some amazing frame worthy shots, and I hope that they can look back on these photos for many, many years and remember this sweet season of life!

Grab your afternoon cup of coffee and sit tight!  I had a hard time narrowing down my favorites to share in this sneak peek!

OMG! That was fun!  Thank you Nikki, for being a fan of my work, for making the trip south for this session, and for being SUCH an amazing bride!  I am so happy for you and Steve and I wish you all the best in this life!

Milton Family Photography | Ruland Family

Recently I met with the Ruland family near Milton High School for their family photo session.  It was an amazing afternoon to have family portraits taken outdoors!  I loved getting to know this sweet family, and I am so excited to show you a few favorites from our session!

At the entrance to their neighborhood is a beautiful vineyard and garden space.  This was the perfect location for portraits!  The sun was very strong that afternoon, but I had some fun playing with the light to create some unique images, I think it adds dimension to the photos that only a southern afternoon can provide!

Thank you so much to the Ruland family for spending your afternoon with me!  To find out more about how to schedule your family portraits please click on the EMAIL ME button above for more details and booking information!
