Cotton ball clouds

We're back from our trip and Atlanta is welcoming us with quite an eerie light display this evening -- here is a picture taken from our driveway at 9pm, of the yellow/orange sky and the cotton ball clouds:

Will be back!

We are leaving for a week-long vacation that includes a family reunion in Kentucky and a few days in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Can't wait!
So looking forward to being in the Smokies!
Here are some pictures of the Smokies taken a few years ago (on film), from a trip to North Carolina:

My friend Ruxandra is one of those few people whose spirit is always young. She is a seeker, always growing, always keeping her mind and her heart open. And it shows outwardly too -- she is beautiful! Her age? Impossible to guess and utterly irrelevant.


My Mom is here, visiting from far, far away, and I am so happy to have her near! Isn't she glowing?

Abby is not only lots of fun and very, very pretty, she's also one of my son's favorite classmates and play buddies. She loves to talk, often about her dog Ginger.


This is Aidan, who is a really big kid, since he's recently turned 6! Doesn't he have the most charming eyes?

Dodge and Parker

This past evening I got to play with, and take pictures of, the super-cute twin boys Dodge and Parker.
Here is a quick sneak peek for Mom, as I have yet to process quite a lot of pictures. It won't be easy to narrow them down for Dad's father's Day collage, there are so many gorgeous images of each of the boys!

Here is Sonali, serious and beautiful. She got really interested in the pictures once she saw some images of herself on my digital screen.

My boy

Today I got to spend some time enjoying my sweet boy, and took some nice images of him all through the day -- here are some, from our hike around a lake, and our trip to the zoo:

June Baby

Early this morning, after intense focus and hard, loving work, Sonata and Arch were blessed with 9lb 4oz of baby sweetness.

They are some of the coolest people I know, and the little girl is already amazingly alert and aware of her world. She was fortunate to start her journey into this world in the gentle environment of her home, welcomed by her loving, wonderful parents. I am thankful for having been invited there as their doula and for having witnessed the miracle of this very special birth. Thank You, guys!

Here are some highlights of this amazing night:

Glitter and Giggles

On Sunday I had the pleasure of photographing beautiful princess Milan and her princess friends, as they celebrated her turning six, with a delightful party organized by Crumpets and Crowne, at Stone Mountain's Cranky Princess store.

Everything was very girly and pretty, from the table display to, of course, the girls themselves and their sparkly attire.

Thanks for inviting me to create keepsakes of this special time in your lives, Milan and Milan's Mom and Dad!!

Here is a sneak preview of some of the images:
