Living in Atlanta and being a photographer has its challenges in spring, mainly the possibility of rainy showers! I was lucky in that the Saturday I took these images, the day proved to be sunny and cloudy and with a cool breeze whereas every day surrounding it was quite stormy!
Aubrey was 4 weeks old and Khaliah, a first-time mom, had a radiant smile! Grandma, Khaliah, and Aubrey had a peaceful session outside. I believe newborns really enjoy the outdoors and are quite soothed by the sounds of the breeze, birds, and they love the fresh air!
Aubrey’s grandmother was quick to point out Aubrey’s perfect swirl of hair on his head, and once I noticed it, it was so mesmerizing in real life and on camera!
My favorite photos are those of parents and grandparents with the baby as you can really see the love they have for their little one.

I really enjoyed my fall photosessions. I will be taking a break in winter, but may be back in spring! Is it really almost December?!
Below are images of Ismail’s first photoshoot! The weather in Atlanta that day had been bitterly cold and we were being hit with rain almost daily so an indoor photo session was what we got!
I especially liked playing around with the images into black and white/sepia — here they are below!
love this one!
looks like Ismail’s smiling in this one!
He had settled in peacefully after a feeding! Babies change so much so it’s nice to have this portrait of him!“The most precious jewels you’ll ever have around your neck are the arms of your children,” – Author Unknown
Autumn is coming! My favorite season is autumn because for half of my life I never experienced autumn growing up in Abu Dhabi, the United Arab Emirates. Here in Atlanta I love how the air turns faintly crisp and cool. Not terribly cold where you have to run in to grab a jacket, but the slightest bit of cool to make you think an extra layer would be nice.
Really enjoying photography lately. I’ve had a nice photo break so it is nice to be able to work on others memories and photos. I should jump back into writing, but for now capturing-other-memories are calling…
Hopefully when I ease back into writing, I’ll also be refreshed?!
love this family’s fall fashion choices in this photoshoot! Just the right amount of coordination and some fun pops of color and personality!
Baby Zara and Sibs – welcoming baby photoshoots are some of my favorites!
