~ 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!!

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

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!

The day I met the Howle Family at Candler Park, was a beautiful Sunday afternoon.  Actually, it was a pretty close to the perfect Sunday fall afternoon, not too cold, great light, golden leaves all over the ground and really cute kids!  And, you know what my husband says…cute kids = cute pictures – and we got cute pictures!  Thanks for trusting me with your family image!

~ SURPRISE!! ~ ATLANTA FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER ~

I was thrilled when I got a text from Jodi confirming our session time and even more thrilled when she told me of her plan…surprise her step-son with the news that they were giving him a new baby sister or brother next Spring!  I think it worked!  It also suprised her grandmother, Gaga, who is 92 years old and now my new role model and spiritual guide!  I mean look at that lovely lady!  She was so stinkin’ awesome!  At one point, I needed some help with some shade and she stepped right in to help me hold an umbrella!

I love the images of Robby & Walker looking at the ultra sound pictures and talking about how big the baby is right now…. {this big}.  And I also loved at the end when Walker asked me to take pictures with his alien he won at the arcade!  I couldn’t help but think of these maternity images that went viral last week!   HA!!

In the end, I think that the surprise worked and everyone was thrilled with the news of a new Maharrey joining us in the Spring.  I can’t wait to meet him or her. (I’m pulling for a girl!)

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!!

~ Kelly’s Family ~ ATLANTA FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER ~

I had so much fun hanging out with Kelly and her family last Saturday.  They came from North and South to gather here in Atlanta to celebrate their Dad’s 70th birthday.  What a fun group of people!  They had the whole weekend planned out – they made the most of every minute they had together.  I’m just glad they fit me into their schedule.  There was lots of laughing and silliness, you could tell that these folks really loved each other.  Thanks for letting me capture this time in your lives!

~ Leigh & Friends ~ ATLANTA FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY ~

The first time I met Leigh was when I photographed the kids at the school where she works.  So, when she asked me to photograph her friends who were moving out of state – I jumped at the chance.  Literally, jumped – as you can see B loves his trampoline!  Leigh has been keeping B for the past 6 years, since he was about three years old!  She and B’s Mom have developed an easy friendship over those past years.  It was heartwarming to watch B love and dote on both of these women who clearly mean so much to him!  There’s nothing that I cherish more than having someone love my children nearly as much as I do – and clearly Leigh does just that!  Thanks so much for giving me this opportunity to photograph your friendship.
