~ Smith Family ~ ATLANTA FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER ~

I’m going to always be a fan of photography as a gift…especially a Mother’s Day gift!  What mom out there wouldn’t love to be able to spend the afternoon with her family AND get images of her family that she will cherish forever!  Especially as her children are getting older, creeping out on the edge of that nest…flying away to college in the fall… I had so much fun hanging out with the Smiths the Saturday before Mother’s Day, watching them interact with each other and then the kicker…watching Bryson and Laegan singing together…I’m getting weepy all over again!  Laura is certainly a lucky woman and mama!

p.s. That’s Bryson’s music with the slideshow!!

~ Daisy Class of 2018 ~ ATLANTA SENIOR PHOTOGRAPHER ~

Daisy, Daisy, Daisy…where did the time go?  I remember you as a fresh faced 8th grader heading off to high school and now look at you…leaving us for college!  Daisy and I hung out together last week at the ever happening, Krog Street Market area.  This place was the perfect place for her Senior pictures – cool and hip…unlike the photographer… One of the things I love about Daisy is her sense of humor.  She was hilarious in front of the camera and had no trouble making fun of herself or the situation – which always brought about a giant smile and some my favorite images!  Thank you for trusting me with these pictures & good luck on your next adventures!!

Photographing Abbi Lynn really couldn’t have been any easier or more fun!  She was such a joy to work with and willing to climb into dungeons with me for the perfect green door!  And, she listened patiently to me ramble on and on…  Congratulations Abbi Lynn on this momentous occasion in your life & best of luck to you with your future college choice!  Either school is going to be lucky to have you!!

It’s always an delight when a family invites you into thier life, but it’s double/triplely (made that up) an honor when they invite you back again for such an intimate time in their life!  A birth of a new baby – nothing much more special than that – especially when its baby number FOUR and the first baby girl!!  They are such a beautiful family already, and adding precious Mila only secures that reputation for them!  Welcome Baby Mila!!

~ Member Event ~ Atlanta Botanical Garden ~ ATLANTA EVENT PHOTOGRAPHY ~

It was a beautiful and perfect day to showcase members and tulips at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens!  Such a fun member event with games, lizards, poisonous frogs, treats and the ever popular…facepainting!  The band, Sweet Auburn String Band – was the perfect accompaniment to this gorgeous day!  Thanks for having me ABG!!

Aside

I’ve known Kara & Andrew since they were my husband’s students at LaGrange College.  I can remember having them over to our house one night…Alvin and I were a young(ish), newly married couple, hosting a few young college couples for dinner – Andrew and Kara being one of them.  Fast forward to their marriage a few years later, their new condo not far from our home, and even to Kara & I working together on some wedding gigs together (she’s a photographer too).  Now, imagine this baby…the one they prayed for and waited for…the one we all knew would be the luckiest baby in the world to have these two as his parents.  Actually, I think babies around the globe are wailing in protest ~ why didn’t they end up with parents like Kara & Andrew?  Welcome, Baby Malcolm!  We are all so glad you’ve joined us!!
