A State Fair Love Story | Central GA Photography

So after having my son I had a really drive to get back behind the camera. I took a lot of time off toward the end of my pregnancy because of gallbladder issues and I was missing photography like something major!!

Well my itch just happened to fall during the time that the state fair was going on. It has always been a dream of mine to shoot at a fair! The colors, the food, the fun ... what is not to love about it?!? So I put out a casting calling on facebook for a fun, young couple that would let me "use" them -- That's when Natalie contacted me :) I was so excited to work with her and her hubby!

They really were the perfect couple. They grew up in the same town. Their parents were good friends their whole life. But it wasn't until Nick went to join the air force that they realized they had feelings for each other. They really are too flippin cute together. And not to mention that they have one of the CUTEST baby boys I have ever seen and cannot wait to shoot!!

Thank you so much for letting me use you guys for my shooting pleasure! And by the way Natalie has a VERY yummy food blog that you should check out: Oven Love

These last two I am throwing in just for fun!

A Bestie Reunion | Central GA Photographer

My best friend came to see me for my birthday :) And this will go to show you how far behind I am on blogging ... My birthday was Sept. 19th ... Ooops! But it was SO much fun to have her here. It had been a year since we had last seen each other and this trip was MUCH needed. She is going though a divorce and need a vacation from her real world and my birthday just happened to fall right at the right time and seemed like the perfect excuse to have her here.

She has been though SO SO SO much! Right before she moved away from me ... well the military took her away from me and moved her all the way to New Mexico ... she had gastric bypss surgery and has since lost a total of 100lbs! I am so so so very proud of her and what she has over come. It was not easy for her to make the decision to have the surgery and I was one of the people that made her see that this was the RIGHT thing to do so that she was finally healthy! And she is very thankful that she did.

She was SO beautiful before the surgery but now ... OH MY GOD she is a little hottie ;) I wanted her to see what I see (she struggles with self image still) so I drug her out one evening and snapped some pictures of her. I wish I had thought of this early in the day b.c we were really fighting the setting sun, but I am happy with what I was able to get. Here is some of the images that I caught of my BEAUTIFUL best friend.
