Picture of the Day: 2 Year Old Portrait

 

I started photographing Langston at 6 months, again on his 1st birthday, and now at 2 years old.  No matter how many children I photograph, and there have been a lot in 10 years, it always amazes me how much they grow between our sessions.  Langston is full of energy, loves to play and definitely has an opinion.  What would 2 years old be without an opinion, right?  Love this little man.

Picture of the Day: Dunwoody Family Photographer

 

Last weekend I had such a blast photographing my friends Dan, Rachel and their two adorable boys, Joshua and Theo.  I’ve known Dan and Rachel since college at University of Rochester and over the years we’ve become great friends.  That’s why is so special for me to photograph their family every few years because I’ve watched their family grow from the very beginning.

The boys are full of energy and love to run.  So capturing all that happiness in the woods of Murphy-Candler Park was a real treat (and a challenge!)

Picture of the Day: Atlanta Newborn Portrait

 

A couple years ago, I had the pleasure of photographing Elizabeth and Joe’s wedding.  It was such a beautiful day, perfect May weather, for this awesome couple to say their I-do’s.  Josh photographed the day with me and we had a great time capturing everything that made their day special – the unique location (The Mary Gay House in Decatur), the awesome band (Nick and The Grooves – achem, my husband’s band), Elizabeth’s beautiful gown – but most of all, we were both impressed by how comfortable Elizabeth and Joe both were that day.  No nerves whatsoever.  None that we could see.

So when Elizabeth told me that they were expecting their first child, I was so excited to be asked to document another life changing event for their family.

Because I am almost 38 weeks pregnant, (come on baby!) I asked Josh to photograph the session and he rocked it out.  Big thanks to Josh for these awesome images.  Josh will continue to photograph sessions while I’m on maternity leave, so if you’d like to book a session with him, please contact us using the contact link above.

Client Room Inspiration: Dining Room

 

It’s time to share another client room with you.  Sometimes it’s really difficult to envision how custom photography will look in your home.  You may be worried about creating a “shrine” to your family or maybe you’re concerned about making a commitment to a collection of pictures knowing that the kids are growing and you will want to change them out in the future.  Client Room inspiration is a perfect way to see how other families are using their pictures in a way that fits their lifestyle and their decor.

Take a look at this beautiful collection.  On a recent session at The Goat Farm in Atlanta, I captured these images of this family of 4.  With one picture of each of the boys and then a family picture in the middle, this collection is really expressive of the boys’ personalities and the fun this family has when they’re all together.  Mama coordinated the clothing for all 4 of them so they all fit together but weren’t so matchy-matchy, which I love.  The teal, gray and yellow just pop off the wall and add a vibrant energy to the pictures without taking away from the focus of the images – the family.

Oscar Fine Art Metal Cluster – three 16×16’s

This Cluster of fine art metal prints come in three sizes and this is the middle size – 16×16.  As the kids grow, we can swap out the pictures one by one or add another row above to the grouping.  Clusters are really versatile because they are individually hung and easy to replace with updated images.  If you ask me, this isn’t anything like a shrine to their family.  It’s a contemporary, fun and vivid installation of art that they can enjoy over many many meals.
