About five years ago, I met Naomi.  You can’t help but smile when you are around Naomi.  She is so bubbly and so fun.  I don’t think that I’ve met someone with as much energy as she has….and that’s even without drinking an energy drink!  :)

Naomi and I became really close about 2 years ago as we both got into photography.  While I specialize in Seniors and Portraits, Naomi is a Sarasota Wedding Photographer.  The more often we spoke, we began to realize that while we live far away from one another, we are eerily similar!  :)   Whether it’s our love of bad reality TV or cameras or shoes, it’s like we were separated at birth, seriously!  AND…Naomi is also responsible for introducing me to blogging years ago, so we have her to thank for that!

A few weeks ago, Naomi and her husband came to Atlanta for a visit.  We decided that we should photograph each other since we seldom are in front of the camera lately.   My only disappointment is that I didn’t have longer to get more pictures of her!   After she took my pics, I quickly took some of her alone and then some of Naomi and her husband together.   Her husband Amir, by the way –  super patient!!  Thanks for putting up with us Amir!!  :)

I think Naomi may have forgotten to mention to me that she clearly knows how to work it front of the camera as well!  AND check out her super cute dress – LOVE IT!  :)

Come back later…I’ll have more of Naomi & her husband Amir.

Until next time – Toodles!

While they don’t know each other at all, I thought it was funny that both of my recent seniors had so many similarities: the same name (different spelling), recent tattoos, and going to college to pursue careers in the medical field.

Meet Chelsea #2!

I love so many things about this session…the colors, the locations, everything.

Chelsea met me super early.  I am really not a morning person, but it’s been ridiculously hot this summer.  I asked Chelsea if she could meet early so we could try to avoid some of the heat.  She had no problem at all meeting early and was totally cool about all the random locations that I picked.  For the past year, I have driven by many of these spots and couldn’t wait for the chance to find someone to photograph at them.  Chelsea didn’t even bat an eyelash when I brought her to a gutted out gas station.  I just love when the people I photograph are as excited about the locations that I pick as I am.

The final location we shot at was perfect.  Chelsea really killed it here (in a model kind of way) and I am so happy with all the images!  To see more from her session, click here and go to the High School Seniors section.

I found this so touching…

Chelsie recently had a brother pass away and got a tattoo in his memory.

Ahhh…shoes!  Being a little obsessed with shoes myself, I always tell everyone to wear their favorite shoes!  I love these cute little wedges Chelsie wore.  They are very nautical – so fun!
