“There is an endearing tenderness in the love of a mother to a son that transcends all other affections of the heart. “- Washington Irving
Below are some images of this beautiful mother and son duo! I have captured this little one since he was a few days old so it’s been a true joy to see him grow and to watch mom celebrate the days with him.
Please click here to see how far they’ve come! This mom just emailed me a couple of days ago as she ordered some holiday cards on Minted.com and was approached by the personnel to see if our photos could be featured. How exciting!
I have some more photos I may try to share later and some of my family moments these past couple weeks, but have run out of photo space (the joy of running a photo blog!). Once I’ve added more photo-space, I hope to be blogging some more images soon. Spring is approaching and I’m looking forward to some more sunshine images and an allergy-free season! I am looking to open bookings for spring on March 4th and/or 11th! Message me if you’re interested!
Below, this mom and son braved a chilly wintry day, but when I see these images, I don’t remember the cold. I see golden warmth! What do you see?
I love photographing repeat clients because I see to the children get so big! Last year I captured Jackie and Sam in fall and was so excited to catch up with them and make more new memories. Here is a collage from last year…
Below are from this year’s fall session!
A fun factoid about this family: Jackie and Sam met in the Target Lamp Aisle after Jackie had just moved to a new city and was looking for a lamp. Fast forward and now they have a beautiful family!

Here are some photos of Jackie’s & Sam’s fall photosession! The weather was beautiful and I really enjoyed spending time with this little family. We managed to get a few photos by the lake and fence, and then right as we were wrapping up, we spotted a red wall with a flowery vine that worked as a gorgeous backdrop especially since the girls had pretty flower hairbands! I love the curiosity of children in nature and how they gleefully gaze at ducks on the lake (this was Trinity – the toddler – in this session!). Trinity had her eyes fixed on the lake and ducks so I climbed over a fence so I could capture her expressions and natural admiration of the world around her!
Baby Milan was sweet and smiley throughout and Jackie’s mother came to assist with making the little ones smile and managed to persuade her to get a few photos of herself as well!

Twenty fingers, twenty toes,
two sweet babies with cheeks of rose.
Born on the same day, two gifts from above,
lives entwined, two babies to love.
Swati was gifted a newborn baby photosession gift certificate from her close friends and I was the lucky photographer! I really enjoy gift-certificate-sessions and wanted to share that I can create a customized gift certificate for a special family or friend.
I usually conduct photosessions on weekends. However, this was conducted on a weekday as both sets of grandparents were in town! I got horribly lost on the way to their house, and Rush Hour Atlanta Friday traffic didn’t help either, but upon seeing these tiny and special twin newborns made my day. Even better, 1 was a boy, 1 was a girl!
I love meeting brand new parents and grandparents. There is a special joy and raw emotion amongst babies these little and a special fragility to holding them that I hoped I captured!
Below are the new glowing — and most likely sleep-deprived!— parents Swati and Akash!
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!
If you are interested in scheduling a photosession**, please send a message to my FB photography page or you can send me an email to Rfaruqi84@gmail.com with the subject ‘Photo Session.’
**FYI, August and September are booked, but I have a couple of openings in October!
“It was the summer of the year the relatives came.They came up from Virginia.They left when their grapes werenearly purple enough to pick. But not quite.They drove all day long and into the night, and while theytraveled along they looked at the strange housesand different mountains and they thoughtabout their almost purple grapes back home.They thought about Virginia –but they thought about us, too. Waiting for them.
Sharing a few of my Eid photos as well as this article on Atlanta Muslim that featured the many diverse Eid celebrations in Atlanta! Was happy to see a few of mine in the article! What I love about Eid are the colorful dresses and excitement of the little ones whether it’s from getting a goody bag chock-full of candy or catching bubbles in silky Eid joras!
baby-greeting always brings spontaneous smiles!
‘Eib’ is so close to ‘Eid’!
