baby Tierney is here!
{atlanta birth photography}

After many days of courageous prodromal labor, Traci gave birth to baby Tierney today just before noon.

The baby is absolutely beautiful; she measures 20in and weighed in at 7 lbs 7oz.

This was an amazing journey to achieve a safe, loving birth via a VBA2C birth, in the care of the one and only doctor Tate; I am grateful to have been invited to witness this magical moment, as their doula.

Here are some images from this labor of love.

On Christmas night, I spent about 10 hours by Traci's side as she labored patiently:

The morning of the 29th, Traci labors in style:

Best of 2009 contest - preselection: help!!

I need your help narrowing down my quick selection of 65 favorite images taken by Oana Hogrefe Photography in 2009, to 12 finalists. These are mostly from my regular children/family sessions, with a couple of exceptions.

(I did not include the redhead project sessions, as this is still in progress)

We will then have a poll picking the top three winners.

So, pretty please take a look at this image (click to see larger) and post a comment with your top 10 favorites (they have numbers as titles at this stage).

I will tally that up on January 1st, and will post a poll with the most liked 12.

Thanks for your help, I notoriously have trouble narrowing my images down, I love them all!!

Picking 65 was painful enough, I will defer to all of you for the further selection :)

(This is not a contest about the kids' beauty, it is about the images that move you most, artistically speaking)

Red hair charm
{children outdoor portraits atlanta}

I had a bit of time last night to work on more redhead galleries and previews (thanks to my broken modem and lack of internet connection, which got between me and the immediate holiday orders -- no worries though, coffee shop to the rescue!).

Here are some of the amazing models who are taking part in my redhead book project, aren't they gorgeous?

And, while not a redhead, this sister of one may be one of the most beautiful people I met:

Art book
{photography coffee table books}

As they are quite popular as a gift or a keepsake, I am sharing an image of a recent 5x7 artbook I made -- excellent to display at home and carry and show off as a brag book!

This book has a custom photo metallic cover and uv-coated pages; it comes with 20 sides and can fit one horizontal or two vertical images per side.

(the 5x5 and 5x7 size are currently on sale throughout December, for $150)

{holiday photography atlanta}

Last part of these previews (or rather postviews, since the families have already received their galleries) -- loved the joyful spirit of these mini sessions, so much that one learns about each family's dynamic in so little time!
