~ Coleman ~ Class of 2010 ~

How does this happen?   One minute you’re photographing a cute little 4 year old and the next – you’re doing his senior pictures…what???  A blink of an eye, that’s how fast it goes!   I couldn’t believe it when his Mama contacted me in May to schedule these pictures.   Honestly, my first thought was what? He’s a senior?  Could I possibly be 13 years older now too?  My 2nd thought was…”oh yeah, end of September, it’ll be nice & cool by then…” I think I was wrong on both accounts because it was hotter than Hotter than Satan’s house cat last week and sadly…I’ve aged 13+ years too…

It was a pleasure photographing Coleman and I can’t wait for him to be my dog’s Veterinarian one day…probably tomorrow at the rate we are going. 😉

~ Andie ~ Class of 2020 ~

Remember how exciting it was to be a senior in High School?  To be the top dog at your school?  How the world was your oyster and you could do anything you dreamed!  Those were the good ole days!  I don’t doubt for one second that Andie is going to take the world by the horns (is that the saying?)  It was so fun hanging out with this chica & believe me, her future is bright!  Go get ’em Andie!!

~ Maurie’s People ~ ATLANTA FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER ~

Maurie’s daughter and mine were in kindergarten together and she was one of the first friendly faces I met at school.  She’s an easy person to talk to and want to hang out with.  I photographed her family a couple of times and then as life happens…we didn’t see each other much except for at the occasional yoga class.  I was thrilled when she called me awhile back to ask about SENIOR pictures for her oldest.  SENIOR pictures, how in the world does that happen?  Weren’t our kids 7 just the other day? I had the best time taking these pictures and catching up with them.  There have been a lot of changes these past few years, but she’s still the lovely person who friended me and taught me Waldorf handwork. Thank you Maurie for inviting me to photograph your beautiful people!

 

Look at these sweet faces from 2011!! WOW!!

~ Aimee & John ~ ATLANTA WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

Aimee & John!   What can I say about these two other than I had so much fun photographing them.  I loved watching Aimee look at John and then her infectious laugh!  Johns kindness and attentiveness towards Aimee and his family was remarkable.These two are clearly smitten and made for each other!

Congratulations you two love birds!

~ Kerr Family ~ ATLANTA FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER ~

The last time I saw this sweet family was about 18 months ago when their son was a sweet little newborn!  I remember how enamoured they were with him, the dad playing guitar for him and mom watching over them so proud!  When Mom asked me to come back – I thought it was going to be a fun toddler session – but imagine my surprise when I ran into her at her office…with a belly bump!!  Imagine another surprise, when in the elevator when she announced…”yeah, I’m pregnant with identical twin girls!!”  My excitement level was ramped up even more to photograph the three of them and share their exciting news!!

Congratulations Kerr Family, soon to be FIVE!! It’s going to be one awesome, amazing ride!!

 

~ Jensen Family ~ ATLANTA FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER ~

Jensens…we don’t want you to go!  You can imagine my giddiness when Mama Jensen mentioned that she would like to schedule a photo shoot for her family before they headed back to their homeland, Denmark.  Somehow, we managed to squeeze in 2, hot and humid (nothing like the ATL in the summer) hours in before they headed out.  Now they are gallavanting back to Denmark breaking hearts as they go.  Atlanta was lucky to host you for 3 years and sad to see you go – brace yourself for loads of visitors!

 

A favorite moment for everyone was this bike cop photobombing the group!  HILARIOUS!

Welcome Baby Thomas!! ~ ATLANTA NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY ~

Thrilled!  That’s how I felt to photograph this sweet baby!  I have long photographed his family and am excited to watch this little boo grow up!  I love his family & love how they let me act like part of the family when I’m working with them.  I just lay around and talk and talk & take some pictures and talk some more!  Thomas is so lucky to have joined these people!  He is surrounded by family and friends who will love him right!

Welcome Thomas!!

Ladies & Gentlemen…I present to you…the Adams Gurley family ~ est. 2002

And, some of my all time favorite folks!  These people & I go waaaaaay back!  We were all Peace Corps volunteers together and then after our 2 year service we travelled around the Middle East and Asia together and we’ve been unseparable since…well, if you don’t count 1,000’s of miles between us at times…

You know how friends are more like family sometimes than friends?  That’s what they are to me – only better because I got to choose them!  xoxo ~ Lindsey

~ Michelson Family ~ ATLANTA FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY ~

In today’s world it takes a lot of effort to gather 2 grandparents, 5 children and spouses, 5 grandchildren and one grandog,  However, there isn’t a better reason for a family gathering than an 85th birthday celebration!  It was such a treat to spend a beautiful Spring Saturday morning with the Michelsons. I loved watching and documenting their interactions with each other – especially the birthday boy & his bride!

Thank you Michelsons for letting me document this very special time in your lives!

~ Luke ~ ATLANTA SENIOR PORTRAITS ~

Y’all…be careful…I’m telling you, blink your eyes and your kids will be grown!  Case in point…this young fellow.  I remember standing outside the room the minute he was born and running in to greet him the moment we got the all clear!  I couldn’t be more proud of this nephew of mine.  I cannot wait to watch him take this world!

I love you Luke, Aunt Fav!
