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!

Thanksgiving | Snellville Georgia Family Photographer

As I sit here still stuffed from Thanksgiving leftovers, I am thinking about all the events of this year in my personal life and professional life. I am most thankful for my family and know that they are the reason for what I do.

I only have a few spots left for this year if you still want to get a family session for those holiday cards.

Just a reminder: If you are due in January or February, now is the time to book a session with me. I get inquiries after the baby is born and most of the time, it is too late. These sessions are very time sensitive. Newborns are best photographed within the first 10 days of birth to get the cute poses.

Speaking of cute poses here is another one from one of my recent newborn sessions. The baby was 7 days old.


Also, we are getting close to reaching the 25th fan on my facebook page. Keep spreading the word to win a prize.

1 week new and such a doll! | Buford GA Newborn Photographer

Well, it happened again, I fell in love with another one of my clients. Look at her. Wouldn't you? She was such a good baby and slept the entire time! I hope she was good for mom after I left. Mom by the way is fabulous and so cool to hang out with! It was great seeing you again. You will being seeing some more of this family as we take some family photos. We couldn't do them today since the weather was pretty gloomy. We were pressed up against the french doors just to get these shots.

Twins and their friend | Cumming Lawrenceville Child Photographer

I had a pleasure meeting these wonderful women and their children this weekend. The twin girls were soooo cute and had the best smiles.
