2018 Prom | Roswell, GA

I photographed Sarah’s sister for her senior portraits in 2017. Their mom reached out to me again saying that they wanted to do something special for Sarah’s prom by doing a mini shoot before she met up with her friends. We met at Kimball Hall in Roswell, where Sarah’s sister works on weekends that she is home from college. The property gave us the perfect backdrop to show off her gorgeous dress.

Prom mini sessions are a great way to elevate your prom experience and to have gorgeous photos to look back on! After spending so much time getting ready, why not celebrate with a fun, fashion inspired photo shoot? I am currently booking for 2019 prom season.

Alyssa, Maverick & Joe | Alpharetta Equestrian Photography

Not all of my clients own the horses they love enough to book photo sessions with. These sessions hold a special place in my heart because they remind me of the connection I had with the horse I leased in high school. Often, your time together is so short, and documenting the time you do have through photography is something you will never regret.

Alyssa was ready for her senior portraits and knew she wanted to include the two horses that meant so much to her. Maverick and Joe are used at a therapeutic riding center in Woodstock, GA. Alyssa once leased Maverick, then followed him as he moved to become a therapy horse where she spent much of her time volunteering.

In her mom’s words, “Before Alyssa graduated and moved, she desperately wanted photos of her "second home”. Not only did she once lease Maverick, but she has volunteered with the therapeutic riding program he now participates in for many years.” The love between Alyssa and her two favorite horses was so obvious to see. Because of this, her photo shoot was so effortless.. I simply had to document the interaction between the three of them. We chased the light and photographed until it left us, took time to focus on each horse, and even loved on a couple of their pasture-mates who were determined to be my assistants.

I’ve said it many times, but I feel so strongly about including special horses in your senior photo sessions. Oftentimes, like Alyssa, the barn makes up such a huge part of who you are in your high school years. Those are the memories you will look back on. These horses are the ones you will want to want to remember 20 years down the road.

Abbe and Chaperone | Alpharetta Equestrian Senior Photographer

Every year I donate sessions for the GHJA and GDCTA awards banquets, and it is always fun to see who the winning bidder is! Abbe was the winning bidder at the GHJA banquet and used it for a senior portrait session with her horse Chaperone at Fortitude Farm in Alpharetta. Abbe was joined by her mom and her younger sister who were there to help with Chaperone. Within just a couple of minutes it was apparent how loved Chaperone is. Just imagine how much you love and care for your horse…now multiply that by three! There were pats, loving words, and treats at every turn from all three of them!

Abbe and her sister, Izzy, have been riding at Fortitude Farm since they were little girls spending most of their free time either there or at shows with their barn family. Her mom told be about how the small wooden barn in the back hold special memories for her. It was where she would watch her little girls tack up their lesson ponies before owning and sharing Chap. Abbe having her senior pictures there with Chaperone who carried through so many shows was a great way to honor her senior year. She is currently in her second semester at The University of Kentucky while Chaperone stayed at home to be loved on and ridden by Izzy.
