This mini-Kupper is quite lucky to have these two as parents. They genuinely had me in stitches during their shoot from cracking jokes about jobs, pregnancy, and the real truth about cravings! With only a few days left until their precious 'doodle gains a little brother (don't worry she will be featured in their newborn session), they are calm, ready, and super excited for this new adventure. I'm so thankful that I was able to capture this special time in their lives in such a special place - Drew actually proposed in Piedmont Park! I can't wait until they welcome their little one into the world!
For those of you that may not know, I have been stretched a little thin as I'm an admission counselor by day and photographer by night... and weekends. Making the decision to pursue my business as a full time career (instead of working two full time jobs!) was such a difficult decision because of the personal relationships built on love, trust, and a whole lot of inappropriate jokes.
With only a few days left in the office, I can't help but get a bit sentimental and look back through old e-mails, sweet cards, and snapshots of fun times in our office (see a few below for your enjoyment and my nostalgia). For the last few years I have had the privilege of calling this amazing place, Georgia Tech, home. I've worked with genuine, funny, caring, and driven people that helped me to grow personally and professionally. In my time with the Office of Undergraduate Admission I experienced so many major milestones in my life and as I embark on this new one, I realize just how blessed I am that I had the love and support of such great people.
I will miss seeing my Georgia Tech family each day but I could not be more excited to pour all of my heart and soul into my business. A wise and loving member of my Tech family once said to me "Don't let anyone ever steal your joy because you are blessed!" This sentiment rang so true, especially that day, but as I make my dream a reality I think I have more than enough joy to go around. I owe a huge THANK YOU to each and every person that has given me words of encouragement, support, love, and of course those that let me capture the special moments in their lives.
This year has been one of the craziest, most rewarding times in my life. Nothing makes me happier than a client that falls in love with something I've created and can cherish for a lifetime. I'm ready for this new adventure and can't wait to work with everyone joining in on the fun.

You know when you meet certain people and you immediately feel like a part of their family? Allison and Wes are those people. You won't find a more sweet, kindhearted, and bubbly couple! They were literally bubbling over with joy -- and laughter! I was so blessed to get to know this couple and see how this wedding was truly perfect for Allison and Wes in each and every detail.
Allison and Wes - thank you so much for letting me be a part of your day. It is truly an honor to capture a love like yours. I wish you many many years of happiness and hope you are having an amazing honeymoon in Arizona! Although I'm sure you are ready to get home to your four-legged kiddos too! :)

I'm so glad I was able to be a part of capturing and celebrating Nolan's first 100 Days! I think he brings a whole new meaning to #100HappyDays challenge for Taylor and Ji! This sweet family traveled to Piedmont Park from Macon and I am so happy that they did. I'm pretty sure that there is not another baby out there that can pull off a hat and bow tie quite like Nolan. BIG thank you to the Han family for traveling to Piedmont Park and sharing your new addition with me!
I hope you love these as much as I do! Love -Jill
Sunshine, fishing, sangria and family... it just doesn't get much better than that! We traveled down to Key West and couldn't have had better weather or company!! Enjoy a few favorites from our trip! Disclaimer: I did not do the amount of fish we caught justice! The first day of fishing I was reeling them in and the second day (when the guys really brought home the bacon... errr fish) I was in the fetal position for half of the trip and thankfully on land for the other.

Coolest tree ever! The trunk was draped in old vines.
Highly recommend the Butterfly Conservatory!!! Sounds nerdy but it was amazing!
