~ 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 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!!

~ The Wisenbakers ~ ATLANTA FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER ~

Oh My Goodness!  What a treat this session was!  It wasn’t too long after we moved back to Atlanta that I had the opportunity to photograph these two for the 1st time.  One was nearly 5 and the other wasn’t even walking yet!!  Fast forward 5 years later and one move across the globe and here we are again! I was thrilled when they called me and said they were home for the summer visiting grandparents and wanted to meet up again for family pictures…minus Mom who stayed home to run the family business.  We met up at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens and had the best time catching up (I talk a lot!), exploring the gardens and making these images. I loved seeing how much these two have grown up and hearing all about their new lives, new language and what foods they miss the most when they are away (Grandma’s black beans & yellow rice).  It was pretty awesome watching them paint their names in Japanese calligraphy at the Garden’s water painting wall.  It was such a great morning and I hope it won’t be another 5 years before I can meet up with the Wisenbakers again!!
