Welcome to my new photography blog. Paper Lantern Photography is my little nook and outlet for creativity. Check in often to see what/who I’ve been meeting. I will always try to post a sneak peek from new sessions.

I’m a mom to highly energetic toddler twin boys. They are my inspiration for photography and the reason I strive to be a better photographer. Watching them play makes me want to save every single moment before they grow up. I want to document their bonding, fighting, and view on the world. Being with them helps me understand that it is important to capture these memories. It helps me to connect to my clients and strive to freeze those memories for them. Whether you are celebrating a milestone, expecting a new addition, or just out for some fun, I would like to be your lifestyle photographer.

My style of photography is a little unique from your typical studio. I tend to be more natural, fresh, and on-location. My editing style is simple and I don't process your photographs with the latest fad. My goal is to capture your lifestyle and create photographs that are timeless. You will walk away with original photos which you will treasure forever.

Enjoy browsing my blog and email me to set up a session!

Yum! Look at this album | Northeast Atlanta Metro Photographer

I have just started offering albums as part of my product line. This is my first sample album, and I am so happy that I chose this company. It is GORGEOUS! The quality of the thick pages along with the details of the cover makes it a desired keepsake for your family. These albums are offered in two sizes, 5x5 and 8x8. Choose the 5x5 to display some of your images from one session and the 8x8 album to showcase one session or a compilation of a whole year.

Senior Rep Peachtree Ridge HS 2011 | Suwanee GA Senior Photographer

Meet Sarah Marie. She's my senior rep for Peachtree Ridge HS. We shot these in the middle of a hot spell a few weeks ago in the middle of the day. Whew. This is her first round of senior pics. We will be choosing a different location and definitely a later time slot! These are some of my faves:

I know... She's gorgeous!

Think outside the frame | Northeast Atlanta Metro Newborn Photographer

I couldn't wait a month to show you another product... so technically this is a print. This is actually how your 11x14 and larger prints will come: mounted on a substrate and coated with a UV protection. These do not need to be framed, but can be displayed on an easel. Of course you can still choose to frame them. Stay tuned for more products...

Mini Accordion Albums | Northeast Atlanta Metro Baby Photographer

Every month I am going to start blogging about different products that I offer through Paper Lantern Photography. I kick it off with an amazing mini accordion album that was added to one of my newborn photography sessions. This came with a matching set of birth announcement (to be featured later). These mini accordion albums come as a pair and are perfect as grandparent gifts. They have a magnetic closure and have been significantly upgraded in design from the old albums. There are several cloth and leatherette cover options available as well as custom photo covers too. This particular one has a brown cloth cover and goes well with the accents in his template.

More Twins | Lawrenceville GA Children Photographer

Today was a special day. I met up with these two and their sweet mom to take photos for a surprise Father's Day present. Awww. What a thoughtful idea! They were such troopers since it was a super warm day!

My baby brother is graduating! | Atlanta metro Senior Photographer

Seniors... at least they don't call them "seniors" anymore once you are graduating from med school. Meet my baby brother, the soon to be "Dr. Nick" (omitting last name for privacy purposes). We are so proud of him!

6 Days New | Lilburn Georgia Newborn Photographer

I always am so excited to get to photograph newborns. This newborn, E, was especially sweet since he belongs to one of my neighbors. I love this family. They are always so nice, calm, and friendly. I hope you enjoy your preview.

The C Family | Gwinnett Family Photographer

Do you remember the contest we held a few months ago? This is the family who won the Fresh Faces Contest. We had to postpone our first session because it was probably the worst day of the year for pollen count. They are super sweet people and so well dressed! Mom is so funny and full of great ideas. I knew I would like her when she pulled up in the same car and pulled out the same exact stroller that we own! These are a few of my favorites.
