Eiffel Tower Sunrise Shoot | The Signature Atelier Workshop

Back in 1995 I went to see the new version of “Sabrina” staring Julia Ormond and Harrison Ford.  In this version, Sabrina goes to Paris to work with Vogue and there’s a scene where they’re photographing at Trocadéro with the Eiffel Tower in the background. Misters are spraying water, a couple is snuggling under an umbrella and Sabrina runs out to lay a red scarf at their feet for the photographer…

Even though I wasn’t a photographer back in 1995, that scene has always stuck with me and I’ve always wanted to do a shoot there!  And this past year I was able to do that TWICE!  Both sessions were incredible in their own right and I’m so excited to share this one with you.

Workshop: The Signature Atelier by Abby Grace and Katherine Bignon
Model: Arienne Swinson
Blush Gown: Katherine Bignon
Jewelry: Bekah Anne Accessories

We woke up so early and took Ubers to our spot.  It was so early in Paris that Katie was able to call her daughter in California so that she could show her the Eiffel Tower before her little girl went to bed!  Side note, I don’t know how she looked so amazing and so classy that early, but Katie totally pulled it off.

Katherine putting the final touches on her gown… this was the first time Ari had put it on since Katherine made it!
And it was perfection.


No clue what was so funny, but Abby has the BEST laugh.  And I’m so glad I caught this of her!


Behind the scenes shots are my favorite.  Especially when it includes this amazing group of ladies I was able to spend the week with.

We each had 5 minutes to direct Ari and her husband for the photos (10 photographers at 5 minutes each, not including Abby, quickly reaches an hour long session for these two!).  So these next few were taken during my 5 minutes.


And this one’s a favorite :-)

And this one!  Between the detail of her dress, his arms wrapped around her, his wedding band and the details of the dress… #swoon

There are still so many photos to come from my time in Paris this summer and I promise it will be worth the wait!

Families | Introducing Baby Rudy

Y’all may or may not know this, but I do actually offer newborn photos for my birth mothers and families.  It’s a one hour session in your home around 5-10 days after the baby is born.  And the main focus is of mom and dad (and possibly older siblings) loving on the new baby!  Rarely do babies sleep for me when I have my camera out, so I don’t focus on the posed images of baby sleeping… unless we happen to get lucky and he or she falls asleep in their swaddle and we’re able to lay them down for a few photos :-)

Two weeks ago I was able to be at the hospital to photograph Rudy’s birth and last week I went to see how they were all doing and to get some photos of Rudy at home with his older brother and parents.  He wasn’t always content, but that’s the beauty of these photos… we’re documenting real life and all that comes with it.  Cries and all!

Monday Musings | Me and My Girls

One thing I’m so thankful for is that Ben was willing to learn how to use my DSLR back when we were dating.  It’s allowed me to get in front of the camera, especially since our girls have been born.

And I wanted so much to have some of US with these trees in our yard!  I still can’t get over how bright and beautiful the leaves have been this fall.  And now I won’t forget because Ben captured these of us… and how silly these two little girls are.


Isa goes between being in awe of her big sister and not knowing what to think of her and her craziness!
