Regina’s Family Photoshoot

Standard

“Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart,” – Winnie the Pooh

Regina’s family session was my last fall session. Their little baby Zayna is 6 months and this was her first photoshoot. Regina said she missed out on newborn images at the hospital, so I was honored to take their baby’s first professional photos! Regina was looking for pictures of Mom and Dad interacting with baby, pictures that would show their love for Zayna. When I see these images, I can see their faces and expressions soften toward her and their smiles grow; I hope you can see it too.

Their session was cut shorter when their little one started to cry. I’ve noticed sessions of six-month-olds tend to end quickly since the babies are vocal through their cries about what they need and their moms are able to read their signs.

Zayna hadn’t given me many smiles, but when her parents started to play with her under a tree, lifting her gently into the air, she was all smiles so was glad I managed to capture those images!

Below are a few images of them enjoying autumn at Tanyard Creek Park.

Jackie’s Family Session

Standard

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!

Khaliah and baby Aubrey’s Photosession!

Standard

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.

Enjoy!

Jackie’s Fall Photosession!

Standard

 

“Autumn…the year’s last, loveliest smile.”
[Indian Summer]”
― William Cullen Bryant

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!

Here Trinity was crying about something and her father Sam was consoling her!

Zina’s Family Fall Photoshoot

Standard

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!IMG_9947-2 IMG_9930-2 IMG_9925-2 IMG_9916-3 IMG_9909-2 IMG_9876-2 IMG_9870-2 IMG_9868-2 IMG_9843-4 IMG_9835-2 “A daughter is one of the most beautiful gifts this world has to give.” – Laurel AthertonIMG_9812-2 “…and she loved a little boy very, very much — even more than she loved herself.” – Shel Silverstein, “The Giving Tree”IMG_9800-2 IMG_9759-2 IMG_0044-2 IMG_0007-2

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!
