I first met Alechia and Jolan in the spring for their maternity session.  It was such a joy getting to know them — they are so loving to each other that I knew they’d be just incredibly gentle and wonderful parents to their little one when he arrived.

And, just days after our session, baby Elijah made his first appearance.  Baby Elijah arrived on the scene ready to go.  In the few hours I was in their home, I didn’t see Elijah fuss one bit.  He was charming, alert, delightfully sweet and energetic.

This day was so beautiful, personal, and absolutely filled with love.  I had an amazing time documenting Becca and Kai’s intimate spring Jewish wedding.  Tucked in the back of a local Decatur Restaurant, Wahoo Grill, the two wonderful women tied the knot surrounded only by their closest friends and family.  The shofar was blown, Jewish melodies sung, vows read in English and Spanish.  There was dancing, a few tears, and so much love abound.  These two women are just so honestly themselves.  The ceremony and the celebration reflected them and their love for each other completely.

Lee and Maya are some of the most kind, generous, loving people I know.  Their love is quiet and playful, but it’s also enduring, and strong as hell, and incredibly sweet.  I love how their feelings for each other radiate through these photographs. It was such an honor to capture a bit of their relationship, their love for each other, and, obviously, their love for their dog, Charlie.

  • Charlotta Norby - So sweet. Wishing them much love. It doesn’t hurt that they’re all very beautiful, but I hope and believe that their love will and would’ve endured regardless. ❤❤❤ReplyCancel

2016 has been an incredible year.  One so bursting with joy and change and light and love that I can barely stand it.  I’ve had the honor of photographing weddings, newborns, engagements, birthdays.  I’ve met so many countless fascinating and remarkable people.  Photography is a distinctly intimate and deeply human activity, and I always feel touched to be invited into your families and your lives.

This year I’ve also had a major change in my personal life.  In October, I gave birth to our first baby.  It’s been a sensational experience getting to know our beautiful tiny friend.  I’ve included some portraits of him at the bottom of the post.

I can’t wait to see what 2017 brings!
