Brittany + Trey Pregnancy Announcement

Brittany and Trey are so sweet to each other and to the people around them! We are in the same small group at church, and Sam and I have loved getting to know them. When they told our small group that they were expecting, we were so excited for them!! They are going to be such great parents, and we can’t wait to meet that sweet baby.

We took their pictures at Stone Mountain Park, which is where Trey proposed to Brittany!! Such a sweet place to take these pictures. We had quite the time with the balloons, but after duct taping them together and snapping a bunch of takes, we finally got one with them up in the air pretty much perfectly. I love the way these turned out!

Oh, and don’t worry, I waited until they announced. That’s the hardest part about having these pictures–I’m so impatient to share them!

Melissa + Andy (+ Stewart)

Sam and I met Melissa and Andy because they are in our small group at church. Since then, we have become neighbors, started doing ministry alongside them, and become great friends! We have really enjoyed doing life with them. I loved taking some pictures of them because their love for each other and joy in life is so evident when you see them and get to know them. Stewart, their chocolate lab, even got in a few. Stewart loves Henry, and we had a lot of fun wrangling both of them while we were taking their pictures.

Hannah + Will Couple

Will is my younger brother, and Hannah is his long-time girlfriend. When they came to visit us around New Year’s, I took them to a park I wanted to check out as a photography spot and took some pictures of them. We had lots of fun laughing and having little kids talk to us. I may or may not have also run away from the geese/ducks that were there… Overall, it was a great shoot, and these two make it easy to get some good shots!

Sofia’s Birthday Pictures + A Surprise

Sofia’s 3-year-old pictures were so much fun!! We got together at her favorite park and took pictures including her Beauty and the Beast tea set and flowers. She loved the flowers and wanted to hold them the whole time. We had a great time laughing and watching her play. We even took some surprise pictures that you’ll see at the end of this post announcing that Sofia won’t be an only child for much longer! (I waited to post this until after her mom announced of course :))

The “S” Family

I met the “S” family at a park in Atlanta to take some family pictures of them. It was a bit colder than we expected it to be, but they braved the wind to get some great pictures together. The way they love each other is so obvious when you see them interact! The two kiddos have the prettiest blue eyes I’ve ever seen. They were a lot of fun to photograph, and we spent the afternoon laughing, talking, and exploring the park.
