Mini sessions are always an experience! The sun was merciless, shining down on both fun-filled days. We had lots of chaos and lots of laughter, which is just the way Mini’s should be! Looking forward to doing it all over again this Fall.
This gorgeous family came to visit me in August last year (yes, I am that far behind on my blogging and so not happy about it!) and while their little guy wasn’t necessarily in love with the idea of having his picture taken, we still got some wonderful shots down at one of my favorite local parks. I absolutely loved their outfits, and looking at these colors now on this cold and gray January day, it makes me miss summer even more. Simply beautiful. Here are some of my favorites:
I cannot believe it’s been two months since I last blogged a session! Well, I have work to do! Let’s start with Miller, sweet Miller, whose mommy was so awesome and such a trooper for this almost impromptu outdoor session in the middle of the worst Atlanta summer heat. I got eaten up by mosquitoes but Miller’s mom told me he was just fine, and I just adore the images we captured at Leita Thompson Memorial Park. Here a few favorites:
Outdoor newborn sessions are definitely new terrain for me but I absolutely LOVE it. There’s just something about a brandnew baby out in the midst of nature – it’s a very calming and zen experience, I think. Definitely something I’d like to do more, weather-permitting of course. Hope to see you again soon, Miller! xo
Oh Miss Emma, isn’t she the cutest? I’ve known this little beauty since she was a wee newborn – in fact, her newborn pictures were the first newborn pictures I’ve ever done! Time flies, that’s for sure. Here she is now, a gorgeous 5year old with an attitude so spunky and radiant, she can light up a room. As always, she kept me on my toes but rewarded me (and her mommy) with some crazy cute shots – here some of my faves:
Hard to believe it’s already been 3 months since I photographed sweet little Brooklyn with her three extremely handsome brothers, one of which, Colton, I already had the pleasure of meeting last year, around his first birthday!
Just like last time, we had gl;orious weather down in Woodstock City Park and even went indoors for a couple of portraits afterwards. Miss Brooklyn was such a sweetheart and in a wonderful mood for her session – love it!
I’m secretly keeping my fingers crossed her momma will let me see Miss B. again for her first-birthday pictures! You know where to find me, Holly ;)
I cannot believe how badly I’ve been neglecting my beloved blog! I had planned on keeping it going and updated through my baby break but I admit my heart wasn’t in it in the end and I decided to just wait until after baby Eliot was born before posting.
So here I am, and I’ve got TONS to catch up on. First off, can you say G.O.R.G.E.O.U.S.? Momma-to-be Courtney and husband T.K. came to see me out at Leita Thompson Memorial Garden back in March. We had a lot of fun and I can’t help but wonder what people were thinking that saw us (me, the already very pregnant lady and Courtney, also visibly pregnant) :D
Anyway, here some of my many many favorite shots from this wonderful and fun maternity session:
I bet you can tell I am incredibly excited about baby Israel’s arrival, which is pretty much going to happen any day now! Can’t wait to see you guys again, Courtney and T.K., and meet your little man!
Shooting after heavy rainfall is always a little bit tricky but this gorgeous family of four sure made up for the not-so-easy lighting situation! On top of humidity, haze and super wet grass, my camera seemed to have an off-day as well (locking up every once in a while) but thankfully the issue has been resolved since then. Despite all of these little quirks, I feel that we’ve walked away with incredibly pretty pictures and as always, I had a very hard time deciding which ones to use on the blog.
I hope you enjoyed my little selection – thank you so much, M. family, for letting me be part of your visit up here in Georgia! Hope to see you again soon!
Hello and Happy New Year!
For my very last session of 2011, I had the pleasure of photographing my wonderful friend Patty, who is expecting her second son, along with her adorable husband Matt and firstborn Gabriel.
We headed out to beautiful White Oak Park in Dallas, GA – a park I absolutely love and adore and don’t really get to see very often anymore ever since moving to Cherokee County. All our fingers were crossed the weather would hold for us and while it was prrretty chilly out there, we had a beautiful sky, wonderfully diffused light and just enough of a breeze going to not make us uncomfortable. Here are some of my favorite shots from this lovely pregnancy slash family session:
I SO cannot wait to meet your newest little man! xo
So back in October I went up to Virginia, mainly to visit my sister in law and to shoot her family’s Christmas pictures – she has two adorable little girls and I always LOVE getting them in front of the camera; so much fun. In the process of planning the trip, it turns out some of my sis’ friends would be interested in mini sessions, so that’s what we did! My sister in law turned out to be not only a perfect location scout (most of these were done at Monkey Bottom Park right around the corner from the beach in Norfolk) but also a very talented – and much appreciated – assistant! All in all these sessions were great fun, very diverse (we had a newborn, several families, as well as one expectant mommy) and I would do it again in a heartbeat! Here some of the highlights:
Thanks everyone in Virginia and I hope to see you all again soon someday! xo
