I met Lindsey a few years ago when I first moved to Georgia. She is friends with a past roommate of mine and now we’re in the same book club! When she first announced to book club that she was pregnant I *had* to mention to everyone that I was a photographer, too.
We had a great time taking these pictures, too! Lindsey’s sister Taylor came with her and helped make it so much fun. There’s just something special about a sibling connection that’s unlike any other friendship, don’t you think?
Isn’t sure the cutest preggo ever?? She had that beautiful mama-to-be glow about her.
Taylor gave Lindsey this pea-in-a-pod necklace so we wanted to be sure to feature it in some pictures.
And this one is just for Taylor. Lindsey knew she’d have a picture in mind and sure enough she did. This is my own little spin on the traditional heart made out of hands on the belly. I love it because it shows off the gorgeous belly, too!
I can’t wait to meet baby Amelia in a couple of months and take her newborn pictures! If you are celebrating an important time in your life, call or email me so I can help you preserve it forever.
I’ve known Tatiyana for most of the time that I’ve lived in Georgia. We used to work together at UGA and our paths have continued to cross since then. I had the opportunity to take Tatiyana’s graduation pictures when I was first getting started with a professional photography business. This time around Tatiy was hoping for some professional portraits in a pretty outdoor setting. So of course we went to the Botanical Gardens in Athens, Georgia. Funny enough, the only other time Tatiy had been there was for a work function from when we worked together!
I should also mention that she LOVES purple. I have never in my life seen her NOT wearing SOMETHING purple. So when she walked up in this black dress and blazer I was shocked! Luckily we found her some pretty, pretty purple flowers to be a part of her picture.
Enjoy, Tatiy, and best of luck in your future endeavors! And if you or someone you know is looking for some gorgeous outdoor portraits, give me a call or send me an email!
Tyler is graduating from UGA’s Law School in Athens, GA, in just a few weeks and he contacted me to get some photos taken to commemorate the occasion! His wife and son Joseph came along, too. I pride myself in being pretty well-educated on Athens events and I knew that we’d be doing this on the same day as G-Day, but I did not anticipate the swarm of high school prom-goers from Athens Academy that were crawling ALL OVER North Campus!
Tyler and his family met me at the Arch and we literally did the fastest introductions known to man and just started shooting. We didn’t really get to chat with one another until we started to make our way from the Arch over to the Law School.
This was Tyler’s “I’m ready to take on the world” pose.
After we took the obligatory graduation pictures at the UGA Law School and at the Arch, we wandered around to some of the beautiful spots on North Campus for some gorgeous family portraits!
Is he just the cutest thing ever or what?!
This is when Ryan stepped up his usual photography-assistant/bag-holder game and also became Joseph’s babysitter. The two of them played around in the field while we got a few shots of mom and dad.
I wish Tyler and his family the best of luck in their next adventure in life! And as for all of you out there, don’t forget to call or email Saving Dawn Photography to capture your next important life moment!
Heather is about to graduate from the University of Georgia with her Master’s degree. I had the opportunity to take graduation pictures of Heather in front of the University of Georgia Arch near Downtown Athens, GA, on the steps of the Terry College of Business and on the bridge in front of Sanford Stadium. I had a great time venturing through campus with Heather and her folks! Doesn’t she look gorgeous??
Not only was Heather brave enough to tough out the chilly weather in her gorgeous dress, but she also was a complete rockstar in making her outfit changes happen despite it being a Sunday during Spring Break on campus. I won’t divulge the details, but if Internet Technology doesn’t work out, she may have a future in something else.
Do you have a graduation or other special event coming up? Give me a call or send me an email! I’d love to talk with you about how we can preserve that memory and help you share it with the world! I know my aunts, uncles and grandparents LOVE when I send them pictures (despite the fact that I’m 29 and not a cute little kid anymore) – point is, your loved ones seeing you and sharing in your special moments! Next time, I’d be happy to help with that. Happy Tuesday everyone!
A few days ago I posted pictures from an amazingly fun 1940s swing dance-style photo shoot that I did on Saturday. My initial thought about the style of the shoot was that everything would be in a dreamy black and white palette, reinforcing the vintage style. But I’ve recently been working with different photoshop actions lately and really enjoyed the creative possibilities. My typical style is bright, crisp, and true to color, just like these shots.
*side note* I HAD to include Matthew’s duck face shot.
This was *ALMOST* a terrible moment. They recovered nicely, don’t you think?
One of the action sets I recently purchased included a “vintage” action. I couldn’t help but test it out! So what do you think of it?
