Sunkissed, and smitten…Atlanta, GA Family Photograhy

I am so excited to be a Photographer in Atlanta, GA!  The weather here is amazing, the sun is warm through fall, and despite all the rain we have had these past few weekends have been so beautiful!  I was excited to get outside and share the afternoon with such an energetic and fun family.  We played in the leaves, laughed a lot, and got some really special photos along the way.

We are expanding into family lifestyle photo shoots, and they are quickly becoming one of my favorite sessions!  There is something about capturing a time in life that does not last forever- something so sweet and special.  These memories store giggles, tears, curious looks, and snuggles in your heart.  I’m already thinking happy thoughts…

Whitney C. - What beautiful photos of a beautiful family! Great job, Alana!

Tanya & Hugh are engaged!- Atlanta Engagment Session

I do not think that I could possibly forget meeting Tanya and Hugh for the first time. It was the beginning of this fall rainy season we’ve had, and before the Atlanta floods- it felt like it was raining for days. We met for coffee, talked about their plans, and about photography. My favorite part was at the end, when they said they kinda knew all along that they wanted to book us! That really is the best feeling…they had confidence knowing what they wanted in a photographer, and I was extremely encouraged that they chose us! So, we set a date right then for this engagement shoot.

We could not have gotten a more perfect day to take pictures! And, what a difference from that rainy day at Starbucks. It was wonderful to be outside in the sun, walking through tall grasses, and getting to know this absolutely fabulous couple. I love looking back over the images of that day because they did such a great job posing for pictures. But the ones we love are those shots in between the camera clicks. Those that are unexpected. Those are the moments that bring the memories of that warm fall afternoon rushing back to your mind, and make you smile. Enjoy!
Our first stop was Marietta Square, only to find out that Homecoming photos were taking place! But, Tanya and Hugh rocked it anyway, and we found some pretty fun spots to escape the crowds.

If you follow us on TWITTER at all, you might have seen all my tweets about how AMAZING of an afternoon we had! I absolutely love this city when I can drive a short distance outside of the hustle and bustle to land in a field that makes you feel like you are in North Georgia! This may have been my favorite part…

What an amazing day! We cannot wait to be with you on your wedding day! Congratulations you guys!!!

Beth - Very nice!

Weekend shoot preview

I am sitting here right now dreaming about this past weekend. The chill outside and the rainy morning weather have NOTHING on this steamy hot picture! I cannot wait to share the amazing images that I have been working on with you oh-so-soon! And, in the mean time, bask with me in the memory of warm sun rays on your face.

Praying for an Indian Summer…

I am giving in…

I will admit, that although I love summer and everything that encompasses that season, I am giving in to this amazing weather. We had a few moments all together this afternoon to romp and play out in the yard!



Now…if the mosquitos would all die I would be happy!
