Brotherly Love (Family Session)| Roswell, Georgia Photographer

I love photographing siblings. Especially brothers. It’s so fun to watch how they interact and it never fails… when I ask them to give each other a hug, the silliness and joy in their relationship always comes out. It may be in the form of tackles and wrestling, but it’s always in good fun.

Lenox Park, Atlanta |Fall Family Photography

Mini sessions are popular this time of year, and I truly enjoy offering them, but I will always recommend full sessions as the best option. Not as a sales pitch, though they honestly are the better deal, but because mini sessions seem to be more about getting that holiday card photo with everyone posed and looking their best, where full sessions are typically more focused on capturing the genuine bonds, in between moments, and unique personalities (with everyone still looking their best, of course ;)). They typically allow for more time and opportunities for those to shine through.

Little ones, while they don’t usually last much more than an hour, tend to appreciate starting slow and I try to make my full sessions feel like a “walk in the park” for them. This little lady has come to know what to expect over the years with me, so she embraced it whole-heartedly and this might be one of my favorite full sessions with her and her family yet! Sooooo,  I got a little carried away with this sneak peek…

In-Home in Atlanta | Baby Boy


While I still enjoy meeting families at parks and fields, my personal favorite type of session will always be an at-home session, combining lifestyle and posed images. Especially with babies under 1 year. I love the personalization of these, and capturing them in their element.  This little 9 month old was a dream to work with and ya’ll- with those curls and baby blues- no words needed!




Welcome to Watkinsville!

Hey everyone! I hope you have had a great start to the 2017 school year.  I haven’t been keeping up my blog in quite some time because life has been hectic- but ALL for great reasons! So– I decided it was time to start fresh with a new blog to go along with my new life!

Married and Moved
In the past year…I got married, moved to Watkinsville (aka-near Athens, Ga.), blended families with an awesome guy and his sweet kids, obtained my Georgia real estate license, went to Hawaii (best trip ever), and got accepted to teach at Click Away 2018 on Amelia Island!! (info here:


So- while I’ve kept busy shooting, I’ve been slacking on touching base and wanted to reach out and remind you that I am still in the Atlanta and Woodstock areas frequently, so still shooting out your way!

*My name has changed to Lisa Schueneman, but my business will continue as Lisa Rappa Photography to avoid confusing everyone!

Thank you to all that participated in the October minis! I’ll see a few more of you in November. All slots are full, but I AM still scheduling weekday FULL sessions through December 15! If needed for holiday cards or gifts, please book a date prior to December 5th.


Thank you all for your continued support in my many ventures and personal life. I’m lucky to call many of you friends, not just clients and truly hope to keep seeing you as your children grow!

Much Love,
