family full of laughs | decatur family photographer

I've had so many great sessions the last two years and I just haven't been able to blog and share them. As my children grow, so do their extracurricular activities. Soccer, dance, piano, school functions, and volunteering has taken most of my time.  I also teach fitness classes, so by the end of the day, I am zapped.  But, my focus this year is getting back on track with Cathy Clicks. I will be sharing some past sessions and new ones too.

This one was from 2016.  This family are dear friends of ours. I love how they loved the photos of them laughing!  I hope they make you laugh too!  Have a great weekend!

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!

Highlight from Maine | Scarborough Maine Family Photographer

Its been two years since we moved from Maine and two years since I've seen this wonderful family.  We found each other when we were both pregnant.  This darling three year old was in her mama's tummy.  Since then I have been watching her grow through my lens.

I was so THRILLED when Jen asked me for a session during my vacation back to Maine.  Jen's showed her appreciation by giving me flowers from her garden (which she knows I LOVE) and her own home grown strawberries.  We spent the evening at Ferry Beach, capturing their sweet moments.  I'll travel back to Maine just so I can capture these beautiful smiles!

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!

Family-sized love | Decatur Georgia Family Photography

I have spent the last two days trying to put into words how I feel about these images and the people in them.... and I can't do it.  These two people are awesome, this baby is amazing, and the whole photo session was the bomb! The images speak for themselves! Hope they make you smile like they do for me!

Koshaknits

It all started when my friend here in Decatur wanted to go on a trip to Paris with her girlfriends.  So she decided to sell her beautiful knitted creations to fund her trip.  With great success she had the most wonderful time in Paris! With her delicate and creative eye, she has now made a spring line to share with the world!  I had the honor to photograph her beautiful work.  Please visit her Etsy page, and buy one of her creations!

From MailChimp Art Party

My kids were treated well at the MailChimp Art Party!  Kids drew pictures of Freddie, MailChimp's mascot for a billboard in Atlanta.  They displayed all the artwork for the party, and showered the kids with gifts, food, and fun!  Our kids insisted on wearing their t-shirts to bed and the next day.  They were also stamped with some tats from Tattly. MailChimp is the best company EVER!

Sweet dreams

It is always hard to move and adjust to a new city.  Coming from more rural Maine, Decatur has been an adjustment.  However this new year and spring weather has brought a dream that I thought I couldn't accomplish.  Decatur, YMCA, and warmer weather has allowed me to lose four babies worth of excess fat (Lost 22 lbs so far!!!) and made me into a jogger!!  If you know me, I've always said I see no joy in jogging and will never jog or do races.  Well, I now jog almost everyday and find such joy and peace when I do it!  I even did my first 5K!

Well, I don't take my camera on my jogs but I still like to capture my moments with my phone.  My sweet buzz always falls asleep on my morning jogs when dropping big brother at preschool.

I hope 2014 has brought sweet dreams to you and your love ones.  I praise God for bringing us to Decatur and the strength to get back into shape!

You know you are a photographer, when you are constantly looking for great photo ops!

We visited my old college stomping grounds this past weekend.  It was so strange being back in Athens with four children in tow.  It was also different because I was seeing the city and campus with a photographer's eye.  I constantly saw great backdrops and photography opportunities. (Honestly, sometimes I wished I could turn it off!)  As you can see by the photos below, my daughter is the only one that allowed me to use her when I saw these photo ops!  Have a wonderful week!

{me at work}

My brother-in-law’s family has been in town the past two weeks.  Sadly, they left this morning for the drive back home.  We all had such a great time together.  I knew my sister-in-law likes taking photos, but I learned that my brother-in-law likes taking them even more.  He grabbed a few shots of me, doing what I love best.
