Around town
{georgia baby and toddler photographers}

We had a blast touring the town of Suwanee for locations to photograph this wonderful family. It was well worth it, and the little kids were such troupers in the 90-degree weather!

Here are a few previews, enjoy!

For Daddy with love
{atlanta outdoor family portraits}

This session was a Father's Day present -- Dad is a good amateur photographer, and as such he is not part of too many images (boy, can I relate to this!).

I had a blast meeting this beautful family this past weekend and witnessing their loving interactions -- here is the sneak peek, enjoy!

Power lady portraits
{atlanta business environmental photography}

A couple of days ago I had the pleasure of photographing the one and only fabulous Angela, of Ladies Who Launch and The Curvy Life.

These pictures were taken at the Alto Rex restaurant/bar on the terrace of the Hotel Palomar -- quite a beautiful spot, with wonderful service:

Sleepy newborn
{sandy springs infant photography}

Sweet, handsome Benjamin, just over two weeks old. My first newborn subject to sleep through the whole session -- we got some amazing images! I am too excited to wait, so here is one of the ones that caught my eye:

Sweet, sweet, baby
{north atlanta newborn photographer}

A sneak peek from this morning's infant/newborn session. Baby Oliver is my most recent "doula baby", and while his age is outside of the newborn range I was looking for in my current newborn casting call, his size is perfect, so we had some fun getting beautiful images of him.

Always great seeing you, Mommy and boy and nice meeting your other big sister!

Growing fast
{georgia outdoor portraits}

Last year when I photographed these kids, each of them was in a different age group. Now, the baby boy is a toddler and the toddler girls have grown into preschoolers.

They look so much bigger and wiser, and they have a more mature beauty about them. Time flies at this age, and I am happy if I can slow it down enough to capture some life slices for you to remember as the future turns into present and then past.

Remember to cherish every special day!

Diversely beautiful
{atlanta child portraits}

At all the schools I have been photographing this Spring, I enjoyed seeing how much diversity there is among the students, and how many different types of cuteness I encounter.

These two little ladies are perfect examples:

Modern school portraits, continued
{atlanta child photography}

I have a couple of more posts before I cover all the children whose parents chose to have them showcased on my blog (of course they did, look, again, how beautiful and fun they are!).

First, two very handsome brothers:

More school portraits
{georgia preschool photographer}

I said it before and I will say it again: the children I get to photograph are truly incredibly cute. More proof below:

This boy, whom I had the chance to photograph a few different times over the past couple of years, seems to me the very image of quintessential childhood beauty.

This blue-eyed girl is not only gorgeous but also so smart and such a joyful free spirit. She is one of my boy's best friends -- isn't he a lucky guy?

And the sweet serious girl here (who was laughing up a storm in the class picture) is one of the newer kids at this school, and definitely someone I am happy to know and whose beauty I look forward to capturing for years to come!

Watching them grow
{atlanta kids photographer}

Probably the most amazing aspect of my work, on par with creating highly personal heirloom photo art for the families, is getting the chance to see the children grow, year after year. The first five-six years are times of amazing change (and the first three make an especially super-powered growing period), and it really is with awe and wonder that I witness the changes in each child I photograph. I am so thankful for the chance to be a part of their own personal history-making, by allowing their stages and ages be remembered in photographs and artful displays, and shared through generations.

Anyway, back to what I was going to post, some more school portraits. It's looking at these first two siblings' pictures that got me all reminiscing, as you've seen them on my site several times over the past couple of years, including in their school portraits from last year.
