~ 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.

These boys and this family…my photography season is not complete without us getting together to make some fabulous images of them!  Every year it just gets better and better!  I love seeing their latest interests and watching them progress on their musical instruments!  It makes my day when they set up scenes for me to photograph and I love watching them fight over and love on their parents.  Thanks Bealls for having me photograph your beautiful, beautiful boys!!

I met up with these sweet folks one Saturday a few of weeks ago.  I haven’t seen them for a couple of years because life sometimes gets in the way…but it didn’t matter – because we were back together again!  It was just like old times sake – except for better!  I oohed and ahhed over how big those kids have grown – and I showed them pictures of what may be the cutest dog ever, my Suleiman (OK, maybe I’m a little biased!)  These kids are so much fun to work with – they are always willing to do what I ask and it always turns out better than I can imagine!!  This year, Mom jumped in, and boy am I glad she did!  I love seeing them laughing and loving all over each other!!

These kiddos…I love them dearly!  I think technically they were my 1st clients!  Mom was pregnant with A and we stood in a field of wheat!!  Waaaaay back when!  Now look at them!  I had so much fun hanging out with them – they were the perfect mixture of silly and sweet!  It’s such an honor to work with families throughout the years and watch them grow! I hope they are as happy with their images as I am!!  xoxo

What a special session this was!!  Tricia invited me over for a family session to celebrate her oldest son leaving on a 2 year mission!  What the perfect time to document your family!  I really enjoyed myself with these folks!  Everyone was so easy going!  I loved watching them interact together and how they laughed with and at each other, as large families are prone to do!  I hope you enjoy these images as much as I did making them!  Thanks Hopkins family & good luck Adam!!

~ Welcome Everly ~ ATLANTA NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER ~

Welcome baby Everly!! Any day I get to work with a newborn is a good day & today was a very good day. I spent my afternoon getting my baby fix with this adorable little girl and her precious family.  I mean have you ever seen a baby in a turban?  Me neither, but it doesn’t get much cuter!  Her big brother was so excited to be able hold his “baby sister” and how about that bow tie?  Thank you so much for trusting me to document this special time in your life.

~ 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!!

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!!

~ 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!!
