Happy Halloween!

Just back from trick-or-tricking, the kids are comparing their candy while taking a bath. Beautiful evening, wonderful seeing our neighbors... Happy Halloween!

Milestone: tooth fairy
{atlanta preschooler portraits}

I love it when parents are in tune with how fleeting ages and stages are, and take the time to schedule sessions celebrating milestones such as the loss of baby teeth! How cute is she? They really grow so fast... My own 6 year old is hanging onto his teeth still, but I am well aware it won't be for much longer...

Special delivery: my weight in calendars!
{charity photography childhood calendar}

I just got delivered my weight in calendars!

I am very excited, as this year's project is a labor of love stemming from my work as a Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep volunteer at Egleston and Scottish Rite and in the process developing a deep awe towards Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, their staff, knowledge, facilities and dedication!

100% of the proceeds from sales of these calendars benefit CHOA.

Oana Hogrefe Photography donated over 30 hours of photo sessions, and 50+ hours of design and preparation towards this effort.
28 local families generously participated in the making of the calendar, and many more have been a part of the fundrasing by purchasing votes and pre-ordering calendars.

To date, together we have raised over $3,500 from voting on the finalists and choosing the child-of-the-month featured imagery!

I look forward to seeing how much more of an impact we can make via calendar sales. You can see the design and buy copies via the Childhood Calendar website. We will gladly ship to out-of-towners!

Any suggestions of places you know where we can sell several of them are much appreciated (are you a business owner who can help dispaly these on your site or in your store? would your co-workers be interested? how about people in your parent group or place of worship? they make great gifts for teachers, healthcare providers, and are fun in kids' rooms!).

The calendars will be available until the current batch sells out or until the end of January, whichever comes first.

Feeling overwhelmed with gratitude towards all the families who are generously making this outreach possible: thank you!

Sibling session
{midtown atlanta photography}

This family is not only fun and beautiful and all-around wonderful, they are also members of my Four Seasons plan, which means we get to meet four times in two years - a great way to create memories of the kids at this fast-changing, exciting time in their lives!

I look forward to seeing these storyboards on their walls (they came back from production today and they look great on the premium textured metallic paper I used for most of the wall portraits). See you guys again for family portraits in another few days!

Fall in Atlanta - bliss!

Such a gorgeous weekend! We spent today in an extended playdate, hiking then playing at home with our children and their best friends (who are also siblings). Being outdoors with my family recharges me like nothing else!

Family portraits at the park
{suwanee child portraiture}

I love meeting and photographing this family year after year! Those first few years are so full of wonder and milestone after milestone! This little girl was sitting and crawling last Summer, now look at her go!
And big brother is growing into a fine young man, as they are preparing to welcome a new sibling in a couple of months.
Thank you for inviting me to witness the beauty and love in your family!
