Welcoming Daanya Photoshoot


Is solace anywhere more comforting than in the arms of a sister?  ~Alice Walker

I was recently asked if I get tired of photographing families ~ I don’t! I love how each family is unique and that I get to witness behind-the-scene-moments to get images like below. I especially love seeing relationships unfold in front of me, a mother caressing a newborn, an active toddler slowing down to be gentle for a minute with a little one,  a father softening when admiring his daughter, and so on!

Here is baby Daanya being welcomed by her family.

IMG_2796-4I especially liked the one above of these 2 sisters and wished I’d gotten more of Z & A together like this. This took a few tries to get, but happy we got this treasure and hope it’ll be cherished.

More later!


About Doodling Through Life

I doodle. All the time. Doodling helps me make sense of the world around me. When I doodle, whether it be swirls or figurines, I am transformed to a world in which my doodles live, and my thoughts become clear. My mind breathes. Through my art medium of pencils, paint, potting soil, and pixels, I thrive. I am a teacher and have taught 2nd grade in Fulton County Schools in Atlanta, Georgia for 4 years. I am currently a Stay-At-Home-Mommy to a ___ daughter (she was born in June 2010—you can do the math !) and a ___ preschooler (she was born November 2012), an an infant (August 2017) who is exploring my creative outlet via the aforementioned 4 P’s! So far, I’m an author whose book Lailah’s Lunchbox was published in 2015 via Tilbury House Publishing. I have 2 new picture books projected for 2019: Amira's Picture Day (Holiday House, 2019) and Let Me Show You The Way (Eerdmans, 2019)! I’m an Atlanta based children-family-lifestyle photographer on weekends. Thank you for stopping by!
