Fun times with sibling portraits
{marietta family photographer}

Each time I get to photograph this family (Fall 2010, for example - and two other times which I have yet to blog!) I am amazed by these kids' beauty and brilliance - see for yourselves! They are members of my V.I.B. (very important baby) multi-session photography plan, which means I get to see them grow and document their journey with wonderful imagery - lucky me!

"My name is Kristin & we have an 18mo old Parker & 15 wk old Mason. Two weeks before my husband was deployed to Afghanistan we found out we were pregnant with Mason. My husband has been away since July 2010 & I have raised the two babies alone. Since Mason was 4 wks old he has been in the hospital with Neurological issues. He has not been diagnosed yet but it now being treated by genetic doctors & neurologists. Mason has had a feeding tube in for 10 wks now bc he is failing to thrive. I have been forced to be away from my oldest son [...] in the hospital with a very I'll newborn."

The beauty of love
{atlanta wedding photographer}

Today we photographed a wonderful couple during their special day - complete with a parade, hand-made birdhouse decorations, and very moving letters Jon and Kate wrote and read to one another during the ceremony.

Their love and delight in each other was clear to all -- here is a quick preview of the beauty we were honored to witness on this beautiful afternoon!

May your light shine brightly, as you enjoy the rest of your lives together!
