In the Streets of Savannah: An Old World-Inspired Elopement

May 24, 2022

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been utterly captivated by the time-worn facades and draping mossy trees found in the streets of Savannah, Georgia.

How do you plan for the perfect foggy morning on the beach—the kind where the horizon is blurred, sunlight otherworldly, and atmosphere just right? Well, unfortunately, you can’t.

Welcome to the most perfect imperfect in-home session there ever was. My artistic, film-loving heart skips a beat a little every time I view these images. I’m a sucker for some gritty black and white images in real-life scenarios, and this sweet morning motherhood session with Lauren and Virginia gave me plenty to gush over! […]
