creative portraits

Candler Park Photography Atlanta | Lifestyle Photographer Atlanta

I think it’s healthy to try new things as an artist. I’m a lifestyle photographer focused on family and newborn photography and I also love love love lifestyle portraits. Lifestyle portraits suit me and my need to be creative and artistic because I am still focused on connection and showing true beauty of a person. I can get that out of my lifestyle family work and I have the same goal during a lifestyle portrait session.

My friend Briana is a fellow artist in Atlanta that I’ve known over 10 years. Every time I shoot with her she pushes me to do something different and I always love the result. It’s not my style to sit in a studio with a stale set up, but rather get out and explore the city! Briana is a fine art photographer and always sees the beauty walking around Atlanta and encouraging me to see things with a different perspective. These photos were taken at Dr. Bombay’s Underwater Tea Party and boy oh boy we were in for a surprise. Dr. Bombay’s is in Candler Park, Atlanta and I am excited to say you totally need to check this place out! Naturally we both ordered tea and they have sooo many flavors!

This session naturally unfolded and it was great to photograph such a beautiful friend in a very unique place. I was actually renting a new lens at the time and knew I wanted to eventually purchase it, and this was actually the session that I knew 100% I NEEDED this lens.

It actually was hilarious that my Briana pulled out probably 10 different props / shirts / scarves / sunglasses that did the trick.

Every. Single. Time.

She seriously ROCKED this session.

We started outside to photograph her surrounded by a cool mural wall in Candler Park. We made our way inside Dr. Bombay’s Underwater Tea Room and started in the beginning of the room. The lighting was beautiful! We got quite a lot of expressions from her, and then moved towards the back room of Dr. Bombay’s. There are umbrellas hanging from the ceiling (not pictured), how cool is that??? We knew we wanted to incorporate the beautiful bookshelf and her several, several props. And seriously it worked every time! I think one of my favorite areas of this lifestyle portrait session at Dr. Bombay’s was actually in the BATHROOM. We were actually glancing around seeing how to use the space and Briana says “come check out this bathroom!” and woah - the way the lights filtered through the shade was amazing!

I hadn’t really pushed myself with light (or bathrooms for that matter) prior to this lifestyle portrait session but I am so thankful for Briana pushing me to do something new and exciting!

5 Reasons to check out Dr. Bombay’s:

  1. amazing tea

  2. awesome location in Candler Park

  3. umbrellas hanging from the ceiling

  4. a huge, beautiful bookshelf

  5. a very unique bathroom

I had the pleasure of spending the day with my dear friend Daphne over at Daphne Joy Photography. Daphne wanted some updated portraits so we headed over to Sweet Auburn Curb Market in Atlanta. It has a nice urban feel and we knew we would be able to grab a nice lunch after! If you haven't yet been to Sweet Auburn Market, I highly recommend spending some time there checking out the fresh produce and small businesses. I went to school just a couple miles from the market and couldn't believe I had never been there! Some of the restaurants inside have been there for quite a while and they are making way for even more yummy places! They have everything from fresh fish and poultry counters to colorful vegetable stands. Let's not forget about two popular restaurants there : Afrodish (Caribbean food) and Arepa Mia (Venezuelan food)!

I can't wait to go back.

You need to go go go!

Using the space gave us a good reason to get iced lattes (not like we really needed an excuse haha!) and navigate the market. Daphne made my job so easy because she was such a natural and loved getting her photos taken! And can we just take a second to talk about how perfect she matched these amazing green walls? Win win!

I had the pleasure of meeting Pam and Sara at an Atlanta Food Blogger's meetup and I was so excited when they reached out to me about lifestyle photos for their blog! Pam and Sara from Biscuits and Burlap were so comfortable in front of the camera and you can totally see their passion behind their Southern roots and their loving nature to provide delicious recipes for others!

It makes me so happy to capture people in their element, and even better when it's in their home and their most favorite surroundings (or food)! 

If you're interested in booking a lifestyle session, family photo session, or just because it's a Wednesday, please reach out and say hello! I'd love to hear from you. Here are some other recent posts on the blog
