Welcome Baby Talia - Brookhaven Lifestyle Newborn Photographer

I have been photographing Sam and Chad’s family since fall of 2017, when we did their first maternity session. Since then, we did a newborn session for their son, Ezra; another maternity session for their second pregnancy; and finally a newborn session for baby Talia. I will never get tired of them! They are absolutely my dream clients, and fun people to be around.

Baby Talia is not technically a newborn here, she was 6 weeks old when we did her in-home session. But it was also a baby naming event in their family, so all the grandparents we there, with more people coming in later that day to celebrate the joyous event. I was so happy to be there to document some photos with the grandparents as well, and despite the busy morning, Talia was a champ and slept through most of her session! What a doll!

Are you expecting a baby? I would love to chat with you about a maternity and newborn session and see if we are a good fit. Contact me today to learn more!

Marcus High School Senior Session - Alpharetta Senior Photographer

I will admit, I rarely shoot senior sessions. But when approached about it, I jump at the chance! And I must say - this session was a BLAST!

Marcus and I met at the downtown Alpharetta, the new area that us locals like to frequent so much. With all the new restaurants, coffee shops, and cute alley ways and art, it is quickly becoming one of my favorite spots for branding sessions. And since Marcus lives here too, it was a natural location for his senior session!

When getting ready for this shoot, I asked what Marcus was into. He told me his two favorite things were his dog Oliver and food. But he was also creative and artsy and enjoyed driving his car. So we planned to get some shots with the puppy, some shots with the colorful Alpharetta A sign and I wanted to get him a burger for some casual biting into the burger leaning up against his car shots. Think Brad Pitt in Ocean’s Eleven. Well, we skipped the burger part due to time restrictions, and instead took some photos with the “Order” sign in the background assuming the food scene, and then a bunch of car shots in the parking garage!

I loved chatting with Marcus about his life, what it’s like to be a 17 year old and his plans. for the future. He is a smart and level headed young man who is so easy going and sweet, I loved every minute spent with him, and I think the images we created show that!

Do you have a high school senior you’d like to get photographed? I would love to be the one to do! Reach out today :)

Melanie Snare & Emily Loftiss Rodan+Fields Session - Atlanta Branding & Lifestyle Photographer

Branding photography is exploding. I knew i needed to jump in after realizing i was already doing it for my own team (with my hair care business) not knowing what it was and how it can be applied to my photography business. Then i was asked to "follow" my client and friend Cristina and her R+F business for a few hours documenting her day in life so she could use those images for her social media.

That’s when it clicked.

With the sheer amount of entrepreneurs offering similar services and products using social channels, you really need to start thinking of how to stand out from the crowd and be noticed.

My branding sessions are all about you and who you are, but it goes beyond photography. We start with discussing where you will use the images, what stories you want to tell with them, what content ideas you have and how Ii can help you with photography.

You may not know this, but I have marketing and graphic design background, which always comes in handy when we discuss your differentiators and unique voice. Not to say I will help you with your logo or website design (which i can, I just chose not to do that any more as my occupation), but I can definitely help you with defining your style, colors, fonts etc. all to create a compelling brand.

I would love to chat with you about your business and see how I can help you narrate your story with images. And if you have a team you want to reward for a job well done, definitely consider setting up a team branding photoshoot with yours truly 😁Contact me to schedule your consult today!

Plumb Wise Lifestyle Branding Session - Atlanta Commercial Branding Photographer

When PlumbWise reached out to me regarding their photography needs, I was just starting to offer commercial and branding services to businesses. But after our first phone conversation with Michelle, I realized we had the same vision and the same idea for this shoot, and I was eager to jump in!

Besides just some updated headshots, PlumbWise to also create some fun and different images of the team to be used on the website and in print collateral. We created a mood board with inspiration, talked about colors and uniforms, and when I got there the day of the shoot, it was easy as cake! I haven’t felt more at home on the job and the whole process went smoothly and quick. It was totally a pleasure working with the whole PlumbWise crew and now I know who to call should we ever run into any plumbing issues at the house!

Are you considering updating or creating some branding imagery for your business? I would love to chat with you about it and see how I can help you narrate your story with images. Contact me to schedule your consult today!

Cristina's Personal Branding Lifestyle Session - Atlanta Branding & Lifestyle Photographer

When Cristina reached out to me last summer about doing this, I was like 39 weeks pregnant and not about to spend two hours shooting…. Good thing she was patient!  We finally got to put our heads together for what turned out to be a pretty epic personal branding session for her small business.

We started with a visual branding strategy session to get clear on what kind of brand statement she wanted to make and how she wanted to capture her personal style and share her message. We came up with a story board and flow for the session that would also act as a social media content map for the next few months (because I know the pain of not having enough compelling content to share with your audience firsthand).

I will admit, this felt like home – finally realizing how all my talents can come together. For years I have been seeing the signs. With such a varied expertise in many areas of small business, lifestyle photography, graphic design, marketing and even direct sales as of late, I finally find myself clear on the value that I bring to the table. It may have taken me 35 years to get here, but who’s counting.

I would love to chat with you about your business and see how I can help you narrate your story with images. And if you have a team you want to reward for a job well done, definitely consider setting up a team branding photoshoot with yours truly 😁Contact me to schedule your consult today!
