~ Baby Olivia ~ ATLANTA NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY ~

Well, I’m batting zero this summer for birth photography… My first baby decided to come on his own and his Mom birthed him in the mini-van… No worries, I had another birth coming up mid-August.  I’d warned the Mom that I would be in Costa Rica until the very beginning of August, but it shouldn’t be a problem…unless the baby comes nearly 2 weeks early and super fast, which she did!!  Baby Olivia was in a hurry to join us – but at least she waited until they got to the hospital.

But all’s well that ends well and I got to meet up with Olivia and her fabulous family a week later for a beautiful newborn session!  It was such a treat for me to see her older sister – the last time I’d seen her was when she was a few hours old (I had made it to her birth).  A funny story, right after I got to their home, I was pulling up a large window blind for more light and inadvertently pulled it off the wall (*sorry*)…which upset Mila to no end…she must have walked by 50 times, pointed at the blinds and said “you broke that!” ~hanging my head in shame~

Thank you so much for trusting me with these images!

Really, Mila tried to steal the show – she nearly did it too with her yoga poses…I mean check those out, they are perfect!  I know tons of spandexed women who would die for that downward facing dog!!

~ Baby Carter ~ ATLANTA NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY

After missing baby Carter’s entry into this world – I knew I had to spend more time with him…you know get to know him, figure out what makes him tick…  So, less than a week old, I headed to his new home earlier this week.  He seems to be fitting in just nicely with his new family.  They seem to be pretty smitten with him and I think the feeling is mutual…especially with his Mama!!

Thank you so much, Holly & Sam, for letting me be a part of this special time in your lives!  It’s always such an honor when families trust me to document these amazing events!!

~ Welcome Carter ~ ATLANTA BIRTH PHOTOGRAPHY

This baby right here…he gave us all a run for our money!!  Starting with the fact that he was nearly 2 weeks overdue!  His mom said she was one day shy of being pregnant 10 months!!  Then when he decided to join us here earth side – he couldn’t wait any longer and was born on the WAY to the hospital!  Born in the minivan!  Two pushes according to his mother!  Luckily, everything went the way it was suppose to and he’s here and couldn’t be healthier!!  Unfortunately, though I wasn’t able to greet him until about 90 minutes later…  Nonetheless, I still love the images we captured – meeting his tribe ~ sister, brother, grandparents and aunt.  Welcome Baby Carter!!  You are so loved and we are so glad you are here!

~ 50 Years!! ~ ATLANTA FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY

When I was approached by Mary to photograph her parents 50th wedding anniversary I knew it was an event I did not want to miss!  Together with her sister, Tonya, they threw their parents the loveliest anniversary party.  It was the perfect celebration, surrounded by family and friends, in the most delightful of locations, with a delicious dinner catered by their family’s business.  Perhaps the sweetest part of the evening was a musical arrangement by the grandchildren, especially written for their Grandparents.

Both sisters told me that this party was the least they could do for their parents who have done so much for them and their families.  I actually had several guests come up to me, separately, and say “I bet you don’t photograph many 50th anniversary parties…it’s a real accomplishment!”  I’d say the real accomplishment with this family is the love and loyalty that they all have for each other!!

~ Women’s Retreat ~ ATLANTA PHOTOGRAPHER

This past weekend I had the blissful opportunity to photograph and participate in a Soul Nourish Women’s retreat led by Shari Fox & Mandy Roberts.  As I have done in the past, I sat in on groups, did a little yoga and hopefully was able to capture the essence of these refreshing, invigorating, thought provoking weekends.  My favorite part of the weekend is meeting and getting to know the women that attended the retreat.  It’s really a gift to be able to sit, listen, eat, sample some yummy wine and connect with women – women of all ages, shapes and backgrounds!!  Thank you ladies for letting me be a part of your special journey!  Aho!

~ Maharrey Family ~ ATLANTA FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER ~

Oh how I look forward to my visits with the Maharrey family!  They didn’t disappoint this time either!  In fact, it was one of my favorite visits yet, because we got to explore around their 9 acres!  A creek!  Can you believe it?  What kid wouldn’t love to have a creek running through their backyard?  And that barn? A treasure trove!  Bubba, Jodie’s Dad kept peeking his head out & saying… “Nancy, you won’t believe what I found!”

Thanks y’all for having me out!  I can’t wait until the next time!!

~ Olivia Pearl ~ ATLANTA NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER ~

I am sure that I’ve said this before – but the greatest compliment to me is when families invite me back to photograph their family, and especially their newest family members, again!  Nearly 4 years ago I photographed Olivia’s big sister and what a pleasure it was to come back this time meet precious Olivia!!

Adalyn insisted I take a picture of her shoe!

Look at how she’s looking at her daddy here!

These next two pictures may be 2 of my favorites here!  Look how Tiffany has her mouth open and then look at the next image how Olivia is imitating her!  Aren’t newborns the best?

Gigi was such a big help that day & I’m sure every day that she stayed with them!  Thank goodness for grandparents!!

AYKM?!?!?

Even though Olivia was only 8 days old…she was all stretched out – no more curling up for this girl!

Olivia was thinking outside the box here…

~ Koepenick Family ~ ATLANTA FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER ~

What a treat it was to be able to spend part of my Saturday afternoon with the Keopenick family – decorating their tree, getting ready for the holiday’s, watching Midnight their beloved dog jump on the trampoline and trying to come up with the perfect holiday card image…

My favorite part of lifestyle sessions like this one, is coming home and editing their images and seeing the fun and loving interactions between family members I may have missed with my eye firmly behind the camera.  You know, sometimes sessions get a little hectic…it’s tough being six and expected to smile & entertain the lady with a big camera… but somehow, when I look at these images – I don’t see any of that…I just get to see the love and joy that the family has for each other.  Thanks Koepenick Family for letting me be a part of your day!
