Jack is One!

Jack is an Andrea Taylor Studio old timer... and he just turned one!

But I have been working with his family since before he was born. I photographed his parents wedding, and then him in the belly, and then again when he was born... It is one of the great pleasures of this job to see those little ones grow and become, like in this case, little boys :)

I was impressed at how much Jack enjoyed the session, always playing, having fun and smiling away. You go Jack!

Here are some of his images...

Thanks again Sean & Valerie for continuing to welcome me into your home and your lives and allowing me to document your family';s history in images.

Taylor & Travis - The Engagement Session

In the middle of this typical summer, we ventured outside into Atlanta's steamy weather to photograph T&T's engagement session. I actually had been booked by Travis and have never met Taylor, so I was really excited to finally meet her. I thought we would have to spend some time breaking the ice but that did not take long!

What can I say; I am truly lucky to have such amazing clients that continue to make my job so fun and exciting. I loved the great disposition Taylor & Travis had. But my favorite thing is the great connection they have... they look super cute together!

Here are a few images from the day...

Thanks to my fabulous friend Carla, who once again came to help out and made it so much easier and fun for me!

And thanks Taylor & Tarvis, I really enjoyed working with you and look forward to your wedding day in September :)

Cydney Turns One!

This past weekend we had the honor of photographing Cydney's beautiful birthday party.
The event was coordinated and designed by the amaizng Michelle Gainey from Lemiga Events at the Clara Meer Dock & Visitor center in Piedmont Park.

It was a beautiful day and kids and adutls enjoyed this fun-filled day alike.

There were many fantastic details and elements at this event and it is impossible to include it all in just one post. But I wanted to start with an overview of the party.

The color scheme of the event was navy and fuchsia... matching Cydney's beautiful dress.

Here are Cydney and mom Natasha arriving in style.

The receiving table, where guests could leave good wishes for Cydney and sign her very own football jersey :)

An overview of the fabulous inside space... for all the scoop and details about how this space was created I suggest you visit Lemiga's blog. I know Michelle will be much better at explaining all the in and outs of the decor and space.

The gorgeous centerpieces check out the blueberies!

Michelle put together the most amazing gift bags for kids...

This outside terrace was especially for adults, with games, a Wii station and the coolest couches and decor.

I love how the blue and pink drapes frame the space in the oustide terrace...

where daddy had some fun time with his little girl :)

There was a caricature artist on the terrace and most guests made sure to enjoy getting their cool caricatures done!

This is an overview of the kid's area., right by the lake.

Some cool play time with the most humongous bubbles you can imagine.

They also had additional entertainment with magic and balloon art!

And of course, inside the castle bouncer.

This is the tent where the kids had lunch and worked on crafts...

And then it was time for cake!

Of course Cydney had her very own cupcake!

well... all kids had cupcakes and they really loved them :)

I will be making another post about this event soon with some more images of this stunning event and some information on all the amazing vendors!

The images from the event were done by my husband Rich and myself with the collaboration of N'neka Scruggs.

Thanks Natasha, Calvin & Cydney for allowing Andrea Taylor Studio to capture this fantastic family memories!

My Friends The Dominguez

My husband Rich and I spent some time in Argentina in April. It has been so busy that I never got a chance to blog anything about it so I thought I would start today. I'll post several times since we did a lot of stuff with different people and in different places...

The images below are from the Dominguez Family... Ale was my best friend in college and I met his wife Vero also in my early 20's... looong time ago :) - Rich and I spent a day at their home in Pilar --a suburb of Buenos Aires and had a fabulous time. And, of course, I had to take some photographs of their beautiful family!

This is the front of their home... the green on the front door is a "Welcome" sign the kids had put up for us (in English - so cute!)

This is a wide view of the back of the house weith a beutiful deck that we enjoyed most of the day.

Rich & Ale enjoying a "picada" (local appetizer)... a real good one by the way!

These are the girls, Emi & Juli.

and this is the "little man" who is just a mischevious as he looks :)

Dad & son play time... I love it!

Rich took this picture. I love it... he looks so proud to be showing off his toy!

The whole family.

Mommy & son's big smooch.

How often do parents get to have their picture taken? (and in peace?)

I absolutely love this moment.

Thanks Ale & Vero for a most wonderful time! We look forward to seeig you in Atlanta soon...

Ashley & William's Engagement Session

This past weekend I shot Ashley & William's engagement session at William father's home at Lake Oconee. It was a beautiful setting and I loved that Ashley had prepared several changes of outfits and they were both ready for some fun!

We shot mainly around the house, and then William's father took us for a short boat ride to capture some of the nice light that was reflecting on the lake.

I loved working with my soon to be married couples before the wedding. It is a great opportunity to get to know each other and get a feel for how we all work together.

This was definitely a lot of fun and I loved that they included their dogs, Conway & Chloe :)

Check out some of their images from the session...

A big thanks to my friend and fellow photographer Carla, for tagging along and assisting me.

And thanks Ashley & William for being so easy going and willing to “play”. I can’t wait till August. It will be a beautiful wedding!

Please share these with your family & friends and invite everyone to leave comments below!
