Introducing Anastasia!

Sweet, beautiful Anastasia was born tonight, just before 7 pm at just under 7 lbs.

Her mom was so incredibly strong through an intense, all natural, powerful birth, and her loving father was overjoyed to meet her on his birthday!

I feel so blessed to have witnessed her grand entry into this world, thanks Sophia, Chesley and Anastasia for inviting me there!

Here are a few images I took of the brand new baby girl and her wonderful parents:

Red shoes

I remember hearing somewhere that you can't have a bad day while wearing red shoes.

Definitely the case with this little one yesterday:

Warm light

I will be blogging this weekend's sessions over the next couple of posts, but I wanted to show a couple of quick teasers. I picked these two specifically because each one speaks to me about that certain quality of light that can make an image go beyond a photograph into a timeless record of the emotion and uniqueness of the present moment:

Two more tasty card designs you can choose from when picking this season's holiday style:

Fun family

Some images clearly showing how much fun we had at this family session this past weekend. The location was Atlanta's Botanical Garden, the day was perfect and the kids objectively super cute!

Thanks, guys, for coming out to play and inviting me along!

Autumn fair

I photographed a few families/kids at a local school's Garden Fair today.

Here is an early peek for a mommy of a lion and a puppy, to whom I promised I'd post some on the blog tonight.

I'll share a few of some other characters, critters, bugs and heroes tomorrow.

Greetings, greetings everywhere!

Over the next few days I will show some examples of the stunning styles I offer my clients for this season's greeting cards.
Cards can be purchased in packs of 24, in 4x5.5 and 5x7 sizes, flat or folded. Folded cards can be imprinted on the outer covers only (two sides) or on the inside spread as well (four sides). See Services, off my website, for regular pricing.

Here are a couple of looks from the Designer Chic card collection (using some images from recent sessions of my good looking families). Text, fonts colors (and evidently the images) are customizable. I will present you with a few choices to pick from (typically two choices for 4-side-imprinted cards, three choices for 2-side-imprinted cards), based on the images we have to work with, your personal style and preferences and my artistic vision.

Cards are a wonderfully versatile and affordable way to share your family's beauty in style -- look at the ongoing specials for offers which make getting cards more affordable and fun than at any other time during the year!
