McGill Family – Atlanta Family Photographer

It’s always so nice to go back to my roots of Atlanta where I lived and worked for so many years.

It’s a breath of fresh air.

I live in paradise on 30A but there’s something particularly special about going back home.  I love the feel of crisp Fall air in Atlanta this time of year. Plus, I get to see all of the beautiful Autumn leaves. But mainly, I treasure all of my relationships from years past and it’s always so special to visit again.

It was a beautiful Fall afternoon for the McGill family. The light was so pretty and the colorful leaves made me so happy!  They’re such a striking family. I am grateful to be able to document their memories and their precious new baby boy, Crews. Best of all, Sister Morgan was such a proud little sister and helped me so much!!

Schnatmeier Family – Atlanta and Marietta Georgia Photographer

This little trio warms our heart.

Shelli has been photographing the Schnatmeier family for many years. Each year, Shelli collaborates with mom on location and clothing and each year they show up in the cutest outfits… well coordinated but not too matchy-matchy. We think they basically look like they stepped out of the pages of a magazine spread or lookbook.

Of course, their mom, Ali has a great eye. It is evident that her kiddos are taking after her great taste.  Effortlessly cool and casually sophisticated, that’s how we’d describe this group.

To make matters even more significant, this family’s sweet, long-time family pet passed away not too long after our photoshoot. You can see just how much she was loved in the last pic.  How wonderful it was to have this special moment captured with the kids and their beloved dog. Rest in peace sweet Dixie!


Alton Brown Pool House, Dana Poor Designer – Marietta, GA Photographer

When Interior Designer Dana Poor (pictured) approached Shelli Allen Photography about photographing one of her latest projects, Shelli happily agreed.

Recently Dana Poor of Boxtree Designs worked on the poolhouse for Food Network‘s very own chef and TV personality, Alton Brown.

This space offers everything you can think of for a relaxed gathering by the pool or a fun evening spent sharing food with friends.  Boxtree Designs did a fabulous job combining splashes of color with comfortable neutrals.  And, just like their client, Alton Brown, there are fun and quirky elements added to the design. Take a closer look and you’ll find little surprises like repurposed lockers for storage, whisks for lighting fixtures, a place for Alton to hang his hat and even a washer / dryer for convenience. It’s all in the details.

We think this space is not only fun, but functionally beautiful.  Thank you Dana and Boxtree Designs for the opportunity to work together on such a fun project!

Shelli’s photography from this shoot can be found in the March 2014 edition of the Atlanta Magazine.
