I had the opportunity to take Fela’s one year photos last week! This is my last summer session! I may be scheduling photosessions in the fall and will keep you posted. If you think Fela looks a little familiar, you are right as he is related to Jasiah, a previous little client of mine! To see Jasiah’s one year photo session click here.
Like his cousin Jasiah, Fela started walking early! He was running before he even turned 1! I love photographing smaller children and seeing them mature from a sleepy newborn into a squirmy smiley six month old to a running one year old is a beautiful feeling! I got to see Fela’s cousin Jasiah morph from a six month told a toddler and I hope I get to see Fela mature too!
Enjoy Fela’s session below!
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.
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!
A was 4 weeks old and K, a first-time mom, had a radiant smile! Grandma, K, and A 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!
A’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.

Last year, I had the opportunity to photograph Reema’s maternity session and this year I got to photograph Reema and Khalid with their baby Farah!

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!

I enjoyed photographing this family of 4. Isis just turned 2 and Josiah was an adorable baby! I loved this family’s stylish clothes and we enjoyed our mini session. Managed to get these before 2 year old Isis wanted her crackers! Photoshoots with toddlers are often much quicker paced than photoshoots with a newborn baby, yet both have their own appeal! “A daughter is one of the most beautiful gifts this world has to give.” – Laurel Atherton “…and she loved a little boy very, very much — even more than she loved herself.” – Shel Silverstein, “The Giving Tree”
