~ 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!!

It was such an honor for me to photograph Grant’s Bar Mitzvah rehearsal last week!  What a treat to be around such an outstanding young man!  I know he made his parents & family proud, heck, I was proud for him!!  Thank you for having me witness such a sacred moment in your family’s life!

~ 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!!

~ 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!

~ Beall Family ~ ATLANTA FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER ~

I’ve said it before…I’ll say it again…I love these folks!!  Its always a treat to hang out with the Bealls, and this year was no different!  Sarah keeps coming up with the greatest ideas for their sessions!  This year it was a giant, pink flamingo pool float. It’s so warm here in Georgia right now that the pool float was the perfect idea!  Thanks for having me out again!

~ Welcome Baby Matthew! ~ ATLANTA NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY ~

Newborns…something magical about them!! Especially your first! Not that the 2nd, 3rd or even 4th child isn’t grand, but there is something special about that first baby!!   Everything is so new and unusual, everyone is trying to figure everyone out – is he cold, hungry, wet?  Are you my mother?

As always I was so honored to be asked to document this family’s foray into being a family of 3 (or 5 if you count dogs & cats…).  Baby Matthew has a good life ahead of him!  Welcome to our world!!

I admit it!  I stole this idea from one of my favorite photographers out of California, Tara Whitney!  She calls these shots “the in between photos” and I LOVE them!!

~ Baby Barnes ~ ATLANTA NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER ~

Baby Barnes…last time we saw him, he was still fresh on this earth in the hospital. Now we find him safe at home, getting adjusted to his new people – who by the way are as smitten as ever for him.  Barnes has a lot to learn from his big sister – and she’s promised to show him the way – albeit, dramatically!  Gosh, I love that girl & could eat her up!  This is going to be a fun ride y’all!!
