Martin Family : Middle Georgia Family Photographer

As a natural light photographer I often have to fight the elements - and in the case of this family shoot - not just once, but, twice.  We had originally scheduled to shoot a few months ago, but, due to the weather we had to reschedule.  We rescheduled for this past weekend and wouldn't you know it, the weather was out to get us again!  After weeks of no rain whatsoever, it started pouring on us 5 minutes into the session!! 

Regardless of mother nature and her sense of humor we still managed to do the shoot and this beautiful family just shines in front of the camera.  I had an absolute blast photographing them.  I loved their sense of humor, the love for their children and all of the laughter. 

A huge thanks to the Martin family for letting me be a part of their day!!

Also, if you are a fan and a client of ours, please be sure to stop by and leave a review on our Facebook Fan Page!  We would love to hear from you!!

My Beautiful Best Friend : Middle Georgia Photographer

Let me preface this by giving you a little background information.  I met Melissa 20 years ago in wood shop in the 7th grade.  We bonded over our mutual love for New Kids on the Block.  From that point on we were pretty much inseperable.  As with any friendship, we have been through a lot, but, we always came back to eachother.  Honestly, calling her my best friend really isn't fitting.  She's my sister.  Her mom is like my 2nd mom and her father was my 2nd father.   I know that I can call her with anything and she will always listen.  I know that I can act like a complete idiot and she will never hold it against me.  I know that she would go above and beyond for me and for my girls.  It is rare to come across someone who will love you, believe in you and stand by you through anything.  She accepts my "unique" personality with grace and love.  She always has. 

We have stood at eachother's sides through the loss of her father, through my wedding, through the birth of my children and her son.  She has held my hand, even when I wanted to pull away and run for the shadows.  I am forever grateful for her and there will never be enough words to express how much she means to me.

She came down for our 15 year highschool reunion (ack! really?!  15 years!!!!!)  and we had a wonderful time together.  When she pulled out of my driveway I cried like a baby.  I know she's only a phone call away, but, it's altogether different when she's right here, by my side.  On her last morning here we took off and did a quick photo shoot.  She was my first subject back in photography class my sophmore year...so it was, for me, coming full circle.

King Family Sneak Peek : Middle Georgia Family Photographer

A few weeks ago I came across a few new places to shoot at - I love my old favorites, but, it's always nice to have something new to throw into the mix.  So, as soon as I came across these new locations I knew they would be perfect for this adorable family.  As it turns out, they were eyeing one of the buildings too - how cool is that?! 

We had a wonderful time, despite the ever present heat (come on, it's mid - September already!!!) and ended up chatting about North Georgia and our favorite locations up there.  That's what I love about this job - the ability to connect with people. 

So, without further ado, meet the King family....
