Roswell GA Family Photography | Pugliese Family

It was a HOT Hot hot weekend here in the Atlanta area!  I could not believe that it was so hot outside for our early morning family photo session in Roswell, but we found some great shade and cooled off in the AC a little bit.  Annabella was a sweetie and did so well with her photos!  She loved playing with her Mommy and singing songs during our session.  It was a joy to be around such a loving and warm family, and to capture some sweet memories for them.   Annabella’s adoption was recently completed and this session was also a milestone moment for this family!

“Born not from our flesh

but born in our hearts

you were longed for and

wanted and loved from the start.”

Adopt A Golden Atlanta Photography | Bailey

This year I was excited to donate one photography session to Adopt A Golden Atlanta.  After years of volunteering with Atlanta Lab Rescue, and donating many many many hours of adoption day photography and portrait sessions to their Bark for Art event, I thought it would be fun to branch out a little bit!  Our first family dog was a golden named “Abby” so this really was fun for me.  Special thanks to Adopt A Golden for allowing me to participate, and to the Bowersox family for bidding on this auction item!

Meet Bailey, one of the sweetest golden retrievers on the planet!  She is around 10 years old, she loves the kids in her neighborhood, and was happy to just be close to you.  She also serves as a host to adorable puppies who are training to be guide dogs and assisted living dogs!  We had a great afternoon capturing some images of her in her element.  I really hope that these images help keep Bailey’s loving spirit alive in your home for years to come, and that she approves of her glamour shots. 🙂


Who needs a welcome mat when you have this smiling face greet you at the door!?!

It’s A Girl!

Catching up on some long over due blog posts and I wanted to share our news…we are expecting a baby GIRL in October!  We are so excited and just praying that she is healthy and happy in my belly as she develops.  We had some fun making the announcement on Mother’s Day, and Will had fun helping!  I know that I have not shared a lot of personal stuff on the blog lately.  I guess all I can say is that I have been busy being the best mom to Will that I can be, and now that it is warm out again we are on the go and outside a lot.  I do get out for a few sessions a month, and have a blast continuing my love for photography.  My new roll as mom has also helped me re-focus my business, and I hope to be the easiest decision you will ever make in choosing a photographer (more details on that on the Q&A page).

I hope you enjoy our little announcement photos and a few outtakes!  We are more than half way to meeting this sweet girl and I cannot wait!

And, since we just had Father’s Day, I have to say that I know David will be the best little girl daddy.  I cannot wait to see him melt!

Atlanta Dog Photography and Family Pet Portraits | Brie and Nala

This fall I met Brie and Nala at the Atlanta Lab Rescue first annual 5K race, and I was so excited when they followed back up with me this Spring!  These two girlies are sweet, fun, and so well behaved.  As you can see they live in paradise!  Thank you so much for having me over for our photo session ladies, and for sharing you time with a few friends too!
