It’s International Women’s Day! We’re proud to stand alongside ShootProof today as they shine a light on the strength and value of every woman!!

At Blume Photography, we believe everything worth doing is achieved in community. So we’d like to take this opportunity to introduce you to just a few of the women who’ve helped shape us into who we are. They are all super smart, ambitious, and run incredible businesses of their own; we consider ourselves blessed beyond measure that we get to join forces with them in creative collaboration:

(Top Left) Kiyah is such a talented artist, powerful and sweet spirit, and an integral part of our associate photographers team here at Blume Studios; she will quietly brighten your day, and at the same time she is a force to be reckoned with. (Top Right) Jill is our “right-hand woman” in community-building, making our local Atlanta TriggerHappy community an amazing place to belong; she’s a joyful soul and wonderfully quick wit who leaves us in stitches. (Bottom Left) Sophia is our dear friend and has collaborated with us on Blume projects; she lives fully and passionately from her heart, works alongside to make TriggerHappy wonderful, and is our fellow advocate in the adoption/foster world; she pours herself out for the sake of others.

(Bottom Right) That’s me — Eileen Blume. I’m an American. I’m a Filipina. I’m a Believer. My husband Phillip and I are Blume Photography; but as you can see, we aren’t alone.

I’m a photographer, a mother of three, a daughter, a sister, an entrepreneur, an advocate, and (despite my strongly introverted nature) I seek to be a warrior for change! I’m humbled and flattered to be highlighted by ShootProof this way today. Sure, I’ve had to be a go-getter to raise my personal “ceilings” and to achieve the many things that weren’t handed to me on a silver platter. But not every woman has the ease or opportunities I have. Surrounded by the amazing women you see here, I am inspired to be more — to make a difference for every women who relies on us to do something. Let’s do it together, ladies!

I’ll give you four reasons I had the best evening at Ponce City Market today. You’re looking at them! Admittedly, I’m a pushover when it comes to most kids. But these rugrats are just super sweet — and adorable, right?! I loved hanging out with their super chill rockstar parents, too. Anna and Ryan, I can’t wait to celebrate your marriage and your gorgeous family! It will be the intimate wedding of the century. More form this session coming soon, but in the meantime, enjoy this sneak peek…

These two are undeniable in simply every way! After just the few precious moments we’ve spent with Lauren and Heath already, we could not be more excited about their marriage and the amazing partnership they’re going to share for life! This day together was made even sweeter because Heath’s work (playing baseball for the Colorado Rockies franchise) keeps him on the road a lot while Lauren is finishing school closer to home. Despite the distance, these two — whom you’ll occasionally hear lovingly refer to each other as “Crush” and “Squirt” (so adorable!) — have so much going for them. Not the least of which is their amazing families, many of whom Phillip had the pleasure of spending an evening with to present these engagement portraits for the first time! We hope we captured even a fraction of the romance, beauty, tenderness, and fun (check out those windblown shots, right?!) that these two exude every moment. Here they are in their own words:

I (Lauren) was speaking at church after a summer camp in high school where Heath was in the audience and proceed to facebook message me afterwards to compliment my testimony. We met the following Wednesday night after youth group and the rest was history.

He is handsome, loves the Lord, and always making me laugh and smile. He’s selfless, has more self discipline and motivation than anyone I know, and cherishes family. He’s my best friend.

She’s a lover of the Lord, self-motivated and determined. She’s independent, gorgeous, simple (in a good way), cute, loving, and whole-hearted.
