One Year Old Session!

Standard

It’s a magical blessing to see your baby grow, but it passes somewhat in a haze! When I get to photograph repeat clients, I really see how they grow. Here are a few of this mommy-baby duo from a sleepy newborn on a spring day to an alert 6 month old in the fall to their one year old birthday session in April! I feel privileged to have photographed their motherhood/infanthood journey thus far!

 

I love the joy these two exude and the comfort this little (who is so rapidly growing!) one seeks in his mother’s arms.

Hatching Hope

Standard

I’m youth, I’m joy, I’m a little bird that has broken out of the egg. James M. Barrie

The beginning of summer is an amazing thing. For a couple months, I will shy away from packing any type of school lunches. I will purposefully avoid little Tupperware boxes, aluminium foil, and the random assortment of pantry snacks.  At Kroger I will happily avoid the aisle that has little lunch sized snacks.

Z’s plastic pocketed folder is fat and full of Kindergarten papers that are sorted through for the last time. Certain papers quietly recycled behind Z’s back; certain papers declaring Z’s love for her sister A with the letter ‘S’ drawn the wrong way with crooked colorful hearts stowed away in a little IKEA plastic box I just bought today for the purpose of saving those special papers that I can’t seem to part with just now.

I can’t wait for the days to become unstructured, for the routines to quietly slip away, and for summer to kick in.

Ramadan is starting in less than 10 days! It’s been nice to see my book pop up again here and there. In the meantime, I hope and pray that these last few days are productive and full of blessings for all.

Enjoying the below… a mourning dove made a nest in my petunia planter. I googled it and learned not to disturb the eggs so I stopped watering the poor petunias. I could have put a water globe but didn’t want to disturb the mother and her eggs anymore than I already had. Hence, why I wasn’t able to photograph the nest’s eggs. The mother and father dove swapped  places during the day and for 2 weeks have been dutifully sitting on their eggs. Today beautiful little dark glossy chicks awaited us! I love the mourning dove’s sounds – soothing and rhythmic. I don’t see them as mourning, rather as peaceful cooers! And I’m sure in this case, the parents were celebrating rather than mourning.

Ismail’s Photoshoot!

Standard

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!

Ethan’s Newborn Photos

Standard

“A new baby is like the beginning of all things – wonder, hope, a dream of possibilities.”- Eda J. Le Shan

Below are a few photos of newborn Ethan! I loved that we got to do Ethan’s photos outside so for most of the photos he was in a peaceful state of wonder where he gazed at the sky and nature around him. He did have a couple of fussy moments, but his parents Kaili and Deric were calm and collected first-time-parents!
