The Lawrence Family

We were so thrilled to be invited to the Lawrence home. We got to spend the morning photographing ‘real life’ for them. One of my favorite things about lifestyle shoots is the memories of what life was like at that time. It is something they can look back at and remember how they spent their days. The Lawrence family was full of so much joy which was an inspiring thing to capture.

C A L I F O R N I A

WARNING! This is a picture overload post! We recently took a trip to the west coast to visit Ian’s birthplace and drive up HWY 1 to northern California. We started in San Diego and drove up through Laguna and Newport Beach, where Ian was born, and stayed a few days in Los Angeles. While in Laguna we stopped by the gazebo where Ian’s parents got married nearly 27 years ago and ate dinner at a restaurant called Las Brisas where they had their reception. The restaurant overlooked the Laguna beaches and it was an amazing place to begin our trip. In Los Angeles, we took a half day to stroll through Pasadena, where we visited the Father of the Bride house. After that we went to the Griffith Observatory to check out the Hollywood sign and all of LA. After that, we walked down Hollywood Boulevard, Rodeo Drive and visited Beverly Hills. The best part of the day though was shopping and eating ice cream at a local farmers market that night a few blocks from where we were staying. Our friends…

Industrial Shoot | The Cooper Firm Office

The Cooper Firm, where I work, recently moved into a new office building in Marietta and we had the opportunity to shoot the refinished space a couple weeks ago. Ian was in office heaven. The building used to be home to an old hosiery mill, The Brumby Chair Factory, and Cooper decided last year to buy it and completely refurbish everything. No detail was spared and the end result is a beautiful and rustic office complex. The interior of the building was designed by Dana Poor from Boxtree Designs and Cooper Jones Contracting. I love the atmosphere and the industrial feel the building has.   Be sure to keep the office space in mind, next time you need to rent a conference room. Hope you enjoy! Victoria
