We exist to inspire self confidence in teens and young women, showing them the inevitable inner beauty they have while empowering them to be all they were created to be.
We are proponents of being true to yourself, embracing the imperfections, and standing proud as a unique individual.
We believe in self love, allowing yourself grace, and unapologetically forging ahead with gusto to achieve what others may say is impossible.
This is such a special time in the life of a young woman, and we are so honored to play a small part in that journey. Our hearts for senior girls and teens stem from our own personal experiences and is more deeply rooted than a simple love for beautiful photography.
As a mother and daughter both having gone through this phase of life, we know exactly where you are right now.
Your senior year of high school is one of the most special and pivotal times in your life! Not only will we give keepsake photographs to you (and your Mama!) to cherish forever, we provide a unique mentorship that you will not easily find anywhere else. We remain in contact with many of our senior girls as they walk through college life and beyond, and are honored to have served some of them as brides!!
A wise person once said that life is not about the destination, rather, it's about the journey. We couldn't agree more.
While we are excited to take your photos, we are even more excited to be your forever cheerleaders.
Stepping in front of our camera is truly only a small part of the experience.
Just ask any of our girls.
FOUNDER & PHOTOGRAPHER
PHOTOGRAPHER & MAKEUP ARTIST
Hair and Makeup Artist
I am a hair and makeup artist with a studio located in Alpharetta, GA. I first began doing hair and makeup at 17, and haven't looked back since! My specialties include blonde hair and corrective color, hair extensions, and makeup for teens and young women.
I have had the privilege of working with Tiffany and Makenzie for a number of years now, and together we have been able to serve a multitude of teens.
Senior girls hold a special place in my heart because I remember it being such a pivotal year for me. These beautiful girls are blooming into young adults and are on the cusp of starting their new lives. I want to help them feel as empowered and confident as I would want to feel in that stage of my life!
I am a lover of dogs, french fries, nude lipstick, and Ellie Goulding!
When I was 13, I started out helping my mother with her photo shoots. As time would pass, I developed a love for editorial photography and high fashion. In 2016, I decided to join the business full time and we completely rebranded as a mother daughter duo. Since I graduated high school more recently, I have a keen understanding of the common insecurities girls struggle with.
During my high school years, I would have loved the opportunity to work with a photography team who places such a deep emphasis on inner beauty, being authentic, while providing encouragement and support during the process.
My #1 priority is to give our girls the best experience possible (on and off camera), and for them to feel beautiful every step of the way.
In 2010, I set out on a grand adventure to start my own photography business. I didn't even own a camera at the time, but I knew deep in my heart it was an area I wanted to pursue. I am mostly self-taught, but have also spent the last decade investing into photography & business education, while pouring myself into every learning opportunity that has come my way.
With each passing year, my love for working with teens is multiplied. They are the heart and soul behind what I do, and leave a much greater impact on me than any photography related accomplishment. I have an innate desire to love and encourage every girl that crosses my path. Much of that is a result of having very low self-esteem myself as a teenager. I want these girls to know how TRULY amazing they are, and to never let anyone tell them otherwise.
It's an incredible thing when you realize the purpose that God planned for you all along. I am so thankful and know that each moment I get to do what I love is a gift.
Once you are booked, one of the first things we will do is send out a questionnaire and our senior style guide! The questionnaire will help us to learn more about your personality, your likes/dislikes, and the style you gravitate towards the most! Lastly, we will have you create a mood board by going to Pinterest and pinning things that inspire you.
After we read through your answers and look at your mood board, we will offer suggestions on both location and wardrobe. We have a wide variety of locations and styles in our portfolio, so we can also send you examples to look at before you make a decision!
As you are planning your session, we encourage you to send us photos of outfit ideas! We have lots of tips and tricks for styling and putting together a wardrobe that will both match your taste and photograph well.
Also, all of our sessions include professional hair and makeup with our personal stylist, so you can go into the process feeling 100% confident you'll be taken care of. Whether you are going for a more natural look or total glam, our girl, Ashlenn, has the tools and know-how to ensure you look flawless on camera!
Last but not least, confidence in yourself starts during the planning process and not the first moment you step in front of the camera. Taking the time to carefully plan your wardrobe and follow our tried and true tips will guarantee the very best outcome.
A handful of words to describe our sessions, straight from the mouths of our seniors: Empowering, relaxed/chill, organized, joyful, encouraging, friendly, lively, filled with laughter, and SO. MUCH. FUN.
One of the most common misconceptions is that you need modeling experience in order to rock out your photo session. This could not be more untrue! Almost all of our senior clients have had no modeling experience whatsoever.
We will guide and direct you throughout the shoot, keep conversation flowing and will never expect you to do something that doesn't feel natural. We are huge proponents of authenticity and allowing your personality to shine as opposed to giving you a set list of stiff poses.
Soon after your session, one of the first things we do is share a sneak peek on social media! Your full gallery will be delivered in a beautiful digital spread within two weeks after your session.
If your collection includes physical products such as prints, albums, or canvas wall art, we will schedule a meeting to go over your images before the order is placed.
Not only do you get your images quickly, but you will also receive a featured post on our blog to share with your friends and family!
Weddings are a big deal. The fact you are considering us to be your wedding photographers is such an honor! We are excited about each and every inquiry we receive and know our responsibility to you extends far beyond taking pretty images. We provide our couples with a customized experience from start to finish, ensuring all of the little details are taken care of along the way.
Once you inquire with us, we will provide a pricing brochure which gives an overview of our wedding collections. At this time, we also schedule a time to talk, either by phone or in person. We love coffee dates!
During our first chat, you will be given an opportunity to tell us a little more about yourselves and what's important to you, as well as ask us any questions!
Once you choose the wedding collection that's right for you, we will officially save the date and get your engagement session on the calendar!
Let's hang out!
As your new friends, we really look forward to this time together! The engagement session is a great way for us to get to know each other on a more personal level, hang out in a relaxed setting and have lots of fun prior to your wedding day! We will completely walk you through the entire process, offer advice on location and wardrobe, and teach you about natural interaction while in front of the camera. The #1 most important part of your engagement session is to have fun, although we can guarantee a beautiful gallery of keepsake images as well!
Since we are located 35 miles north of downtown Atlanta, we are familiar with a variety of amazing locations to take your engagement portraits. Whether it is a quiet stream in a wooded wonderland or an urban backdrop with colors and lines, we have you covered!
The wedding day timeline is arguably the most important aspect of the wedding planning process! Our ability to thoroughly document your wedding day (and without adding any stress to you!) is solely dependent on a well-thought out and fluid timeline.
Do you want detail photos?
Are you doing a first look?
Do you like the idea of sunset portraits?
Regardless of how you structure your timeline, our goal is to make things as easy as possible so you can wake up on the morning of your wedding day without worry. Once we iron out all the details, you will receive a customized timeline to share with your wedding party.
Today's the big day! After months of planning, making lists, counting rsvp's and checking your lists again, it's finally time to enjoy the most important day of your life!
Our goal on your special day is to make sure things flow as easily as possible so that you can enjoy time with your family and friends who came to celebrate with you!
We will be there not only to capture every moment from the morning mimosas to the bittersweet send off, but also to work seamlessly with your planner and DJ to make sure you are well taken care of.
One of the best parts of capturing your wedding day is that you won't have to wait to see images! After your I do's, we will feature you on the blog where you will see a sneak peek of our favorite highlight images!
We are huge advocates of preserving your memories in a tangible way by ordering an heirloom album to keep in your family for generations to come.
Once your wedding gallery has been delivered, we will start the album design process! We will work with you to be sure and include all your favorite images, while keeping in mind a cohesive design that will showcase each moment of your day in the most beautiful way possible.
After you sign off on the final version, it goes to print! The best part is, it only takes a few days to be delivered straight to your front door! Our wedding albums are luxurious and made of the finest quality materials available, so we can guarantee you will be thoroughly impressed and eager to show your family and friends!
