I’ve been so excited to share one of my recent sessions with a face you all may already know.
Chaffee and I met about five years ago when we were both starting to build our businesses. B Braithwaite is known throughout Atlanta and the Southeast for their refined chic nursery design and ultimate one-stop destination for clients who want a boutique shopping experience with hands on customer service.
When photographing my little subject’s nurseries, I often look for the same clean, sophisticated design that I see inside of Chaffee’s store. Every single detail – from the gorgeous packaging, to the light-filled, modern aesthetics, to the full selection of ultra-chic baby products – make shopping, registering, and browsing such a joy there.
Over the course of the years, Chaffee and I have become great friends. I remember Kyu and I sharing a bottle of wine with Chaffee and her husband a couple of years ago. We discussed our goals and desires for our businesses and opened our hearts about someday starting a family.
When we found out we were expecting, we called Chaffee and her husband to share the news. To our delight, Chaffee responded with a “Guess what? I’m three weeks ahead of you!”
It has been a fun and wild roller coaster ride for both of us. Pregnancy ailments, milestones, and this amazing adventure called parenthood. We love that we can continue sharing our experiences as we raise our boys.
Such a joy meeting this sweet boy who arrived 10 days early! Perfect timing for me to come and photograph him at 37 weeks. Good boy.
I love that I got to really spend time with Erich and his family during our session. Between poses, I caught some of the sweetest, silent moments on film. My favorite of the day…
And Erich’s nursery… I know many have been dying to see his finished room.
It’s soft and simple, elegant and sophisticated. Gorgeous light streaming in from the french doors and a life-sized rocking horse beautifully mounted above Erich’s crib.
The proud parents…
A week after Lyon was born, Erich came to visit for their first playdate. How adorable are they? Erich, 6 weeks old and his buddy Lyon, a week old.
Two peas in a pod.
