Andrew & Lauren // Dawsonville GA Engagement Photography

Ariana's Adventures in Georgia Part 2!

Danielle's brother Andrew recently got engaged to Lauren and they asked me to take their engagement photos while I was in Georgia for Walker's birthday. I was very excited to work with them and to meet this lucky girl. Oh my, what a sweet couple they are.

The first thing I noticed about them is an insane height difference; Andrew towers over the general population while Lauren is a petite little doll--I love it! Playing with height in photography is one of my favorite things.

Sharing a kiss at eye level and the impossible high five. Kudos to both of them for all of the lifting and jumping I asked of them during these shots. Way to go guys, we nailed it!

Congratulations, Lauren and Andrew!! I can't wait to come back to Georgia for your wedding!

Walker is One! // Dawsonville GA Family & Child Photography

Let me start out with gushing for a moment about how much I love the Walls family. I met Danielle and Lance in 2010 when they asked me to take their engagement pictures and was instantly smitten with them--their love for one another, their amazing chemistry, and their absurdly good looks just make me and my camera so happy. The feeling must be mutual, because I have been invited to join them in celebrating every milestone since: their destination wedding in 2012, their first pregnancy last year, and recently, dun dun dun, the first birthday of their adorable son Walker! I am beyond blessed to know and get to work with them. They are beyond supportive, and at this point they are more like extended family than clients. Ok, enough gushing, let me show you some of the shots I captured during my most recent adventure to Georgia.

Walker is by far one of the sweetest, happiest babies I have ever met. He's got a smile that will melt your heart. He looks just like his daddy and he's got his mommy's joy; Danielle is always smiling and laughing, full of a wonderful energy and it's apparent that she's given that trait to her son.

Lance and Danielle have taken to parenthood like fish to water. Watching them and their relationship grow over the years has been amazing. They are both so good with Walker. He's lucky to have such amazing parents!

During one of our last conversations before driving down, Danielle let me in on a bit of privy information that she was planning to announce at the party. I squealed with joy and immediately start brainstorming for some good ideas to pop the news:

Walker's going to be a big brother!!! He doesn't look so sure about it but I know he's going to love his baby brother or sister and they'll both be surrounded by the love of their parents and family. I could not be happier for them. Good luck in this pregnancy, Danielle! (Maybe you'll actually get a belly this time? Haha)

Congratulations to this wonderful little (but growing!) family. I love you guys and I can't wait to see you again! I had planned on adding some photos of Walker's party to this blog, but my time before having to go to work is drawing desperately thin, so there will be a separate post for those. Stay tuned!
