Atlanta

three plus one equals four | Atlanta Maternity Photographer

3 years ago, I had the blessing to photograph this little girl just out of the tummy. Now she is going to be a big sister! We spent a beautiful night at Jimmy Carter Library Gardens in Atlanta, capturing moments before this family of three become four. (Click photos to enlarge.)

too many great photos... not enough time | decatur family photographer

I realized that I haven’t updated my blog for over a year now. Managing my family has overtaken my time, so any extra things I normally get to do for my business has been put on the backburner. I have been blessed to capture so many beautiful moments and I hope to slowly get to share them with you. Here are a few highlights of this past year.

Three's a charm | Atlanta Family Photographer

These boys.  I. can't. even..... put into words how I feel about this family.

I feel so blessed that I got to capture the sweet. pure. joy. (and craziness) of these boys.  They are so full of personality and so sweet to each other..... which is all because of their amazing parents!

Photography has been on the back burner the last couple of years, but sessions like this makes me appreciate and cherish the families I get to know, the talents God has given me, and the warm fuzzy feelings photography does to me.

It's that time again.....

Christmas is just around the corner!  Do you send out Christmas Cards?  I am running a Mini-Session special.  You'll receive a 30 minute session at the location of your choice (within 5 miles from Decatur, GA) and 5-7 high resolution finished images for you to print on your own for $250.

Check out this recent session of my friend from over 20 years ago.  He was my Sunday School teacher when I was in high school!  It was such a blessing to photograph his beautiful family!

Last Christmas.....

I recently did a session where we searched for great wall pieces for their backdrops.  Then I realized, I never shared our Christmas images from last year.  Each year, my husband and I get excited about figuring out where to place our kids in front of.  It is amazing living around all the Living Walls art pieces.  Atlanta has changed so much since we moved away 12 years ago!  I think this year, we will have to find a wall with this guy's work on it!

Country to City…. and new beginnings

Since moving to the city, we thought it was appropriate that our session for our Christmas card should be one of the beautiful painted walls in Atlanta.  It was hard to pick, but this one is under an overpass for the Marta (subway) off N. Dekalb in Kirkwood.

It hasn’t been the easiest transition, going from living on 10 acres to only having .63 acre.  And it has been a hard transition having my husband not work at home anymore.  He used to work 10 hour days, but only 4 days a week.  So I had Friday-Sunday to do sessions and work on photos.  Now he works at an office,  5 days a week.  I didn’t realize the blessing it was for my husband to be at home.  It has been draining, so my business has been put on hold.

I am still tired, like all the time, however I just cannot step away from what I love to do.  So hopefully when this cold weather disappears, I can start doing what I love again!  Look out Atlanta peeps, I will be having a special promotion to start out my business here.
