Katharine and Caroline

This was my second shoot for Annie and I can't believe how big the girls have gotten in just a year!  It was my first time exploring one of the Roswell Historic Homes, at Annie's request, and it could not have been more perfect.  We got nothing but beautiful smiles in a perfect setting.  Can't wait for our next session!

Malena and Macie

Beautiful morning with a wonderful family!  I've known Danielle for about 15 years now (yikes!!!!!) and she is one of the most real and soulful people in my life.  In fact, I kind of met my husband through her - thanks babe!  Tim is equally coolio and these girls are too cute (just look at those outfits!).  The great thing about where we were for this shoot is the space to run.  It leaves plenty of room for real personality to come out and we saw lots of it:)

Asher, Joseph and Jacob

Love this crew!!  My first photo session with Vicky was when she was pregnant with her first and now look how big her younger twins are!  The years they are a'flyin'.  We had absolutely perfect weather for our equestrian shoot.  Looooooved Vicky's soft touch selection with the fairy skirt.  Perfect pairing with the denim!!  The boys were so well behaved and showed lots of spunky personality.  Can't wait to see you all again soon, Cliftons!

Reagan and Sawyer

Hey everyone!  Finally blogging again after a long and super busy fall, and I can't wait to share all I captured this season.  First off, I wanted to post this amazing fall newborn shoot.  I've been friends with the Clonts' for years and couldn't wait to get them in front of my camera again to capture their new baby boy.  The foliage on their property was majestic and Sawyer added so much love and personality to the session.  I have some shots of her just one year ago in my portfolio and I can't believe how quickly she has grown!!  Reagan was a dream and slept through most of the excitement.  Second children are always more 'go with the flow'!

Parker and Kate

I've known Margaux since our days at UGA.  She was an overachiever then (Pres of Kappa) and still is now (Medical Director at CHOA).  Not to mention Mommy extraordinaire.  Her son, Parker, is in my son's class in preschool so I have the pleasure of getting to visit with them often.  Part 1 of this session was just a little dicey.  If you scroll to the last picture you can get a glimpse.  Poor Kate was up all night with a cold and not feeling her best.  When we gave it another try she was back to her normal self of smiles and personality.  Parker was a very supportive and sweet big brother throughout. Such a fun and photogenic pair!

William and Elizabeth

These two were a delight to shoot.  William could not have been calmer and Elizabeth was so gentle with him and brought lots of personality.  One of my favorite parts about shooting in the home is the decor!  It's always so fun to embrace the aesthetic of the room and highlight interesting pieces.  I loved the chair (shown below) and navy patterned rug as stand alone items to shoot with baby.  As an added bonus, we started to see some fall foliage in the backyard for those pics.  Love this time of year!

Eli and Noah

I know this family from my son's elementary school and Grace, the Mom, is one of the most active in the PTA, the basketball team Mom, a volunteer extraordinaire and an affiliate for EVER skin care which is why her face looks amazing.   Not only that, but she has the most wonderful two boys and happy family vibe!  They requested an 'urban' feel for their shoot, which immediately drew me toward the Westside, which is a super convenient and dynamic venue.  We had to get creative with our positioning though because it was packed with people waiting for Taqueria del Sol (yummmmmy)!

Julia and Elise

I look forward to shooting the McArthurs every year.  Julia used to be in preschool with my Charlie and it is crazy to see how big they've gotten!  We went down to Ponce City Market to enjoy the colorful backdrops and view of the city.  We got off to a shaky start when Elise fell right before the shoot started, but she's a tough cookie and carried on with lots of smiles:)  They are a sassy pair and since I have all boys in my house, it's a treat to have some girl time!

Peter

Had a wonderful time on the Chattahoochee with Nancy and Peter.  With the summer ending, it's nice to get out there before it gets too cold to dip your toes:)!  Peter couldn't stop giggling and smiling the whole time and definitely wasn't ready to go at the end, even though he had completely soaked his clothes.  It really is a special park that I enjoy all the time with it being right by my house!  Thanks, Nancy, for the fun afternoon!

Jane and Eleanor

We went to Winn Park in Midtown for this shoot, just a short walk from Jane and Eleanor's house.  The wonderful thing about this neighborhood is that after the shoot, the family just continued their walk to the museum for a children's exhibit.  I love pedestrian friendly areas in the city!  The matching polka dot outfits on these girls were too much:)  So cute!!

Marcus and Oliver

We did this session when Oliver was about 1 month old and big brother already is adoring him. Marcus was thrilled to hold him for the pics of the two of them.  So much so, that he threw a bit of a fuss when Mom took baby back.  One cool thing about this shoot was the house.  The architecture was super unique and unexpected.  I particularly loved Marcus' room with the enormous oval window.  Great environment for inspiration!

Archer and Jude

What a delight it was to shoot one of my very favorite families on the planet!  We squeezed this session in to my last quick trip to New Orleans in between a fun night on Frenchmen St. and a playdate at Daneel Park.  Ariel and Chris' home inspires me because it is so open, stylish and clutter free!  They have a strategy of major minimalism with their toys and yet their boys are never bored.  I'm including this picture of their magnet wall because we are going to do the same thing in our basement.  It's awesome!

Zoey

This was my third shoot for this wonderful family and it's been a delight every time.  Zoey was just 4 days old, but still a very strong and wakeful little thing.  It took lots of patience and soothing to get her to doze off for a few shots!

Sweet little ladies...

   Welcome to my new blog!  I was so excited for this to be my first post.  It was a perfect spring day for a shoot.  Though the air was a little crisp, it was perfect in the sunshine.  These girls had an absolute ball and I especially loved working with this family because we know them through my son's grade school.
