Client Rooms: Family Portrait Canvas Cluster

 

Ronan’s kids portrait in the Virginia-Highlands was a blast.  We first visited Fire Station #19 where he got to slide down the fire pole, sit in the driver’s seat of the engine and see how the hose works.  You could say it was a dream come true for this 2 year old.  After our adventure there, we headed down the street to John Howell Park and had a blast walking through the Highlands, jumping in puddles and playing on the playground.  Mom and Dad chose this beautiful Cluster on Fine Art Canvas to hang in their home.  Since they moved just days after I delivered their order, I didn’t have a chance to install it for them.  But I couldn’t resist getting some shots of it before it headed for San Francisco.

I love the asymmetrical layout of the Elmo Cluster.  Not many people are comfortable with asymmetry but if you are, this is unique, eye-catching and has a lot of “movement.”  I hear that it will hang above the piano in their music room.  I can only imagine how well the squares and rectangles will work with the curve of the piano.  Can’t wait to see it!

Picture of the Day: Atlanta Kids/Baby Portrait, Piedmont Park

 

Meet Eli and his big brother, Ethan.  We met at Piedmont Park on Friday for some beautiful weather and lots of fun.  Ethan is full of joy and energy.  He’s at that wonderful age of two where he has places to be and the only way to get there is by running!  Each time his dad was able to get him to be still, I would manage to get one or two picture and he was off again.  All my patience paid off when I was able to capture this moment.  Such a sweet little boy!  Look at that face!

And baby Eli is just 2 months old.  I love this peaceful moment I caught of Eli and mom.  There is so much safety and security resting in mom’s arms, and he is just an adorable puddle of cuteness.

Picture of the Day: Atlanta Adventure Kids Portrait

 

I have been photographing Carter since he was just a puddle in his mom’s arms at 6 months old.  Watching him grow, getting to know his parents and documenting his childhood has been such a honor.  (If you’ve been to the studio, you’ll recognize him from the Fine Art Canvas Cluster of him hanging on the wall.)  At 4 1/2, he loves trains.  When his parents suggested going to the Southeastern Railway Museum for his session, I was so excited.  It’s so inspiring to go to a location that is special to my clients and totally new to me.  All the old train cars, engines and train tracks were not only fun to explore but were also so textured (and you know how I love contrasting textures!)  Rusted out trains, overgrown grass, even tacky upholstery on the train seats provided such interesting backdrops to this fun and adventurous kids portrait session.

Once again, I couldn’t choose just one image for the Picture of the Day, so I chose three that are expressive of Carter’s personality and his relationship with his parents.

I’ve recently been photographing a lot of adventure portraits – at the Atlanta Zoo, fire stations in Virginia-Highland and Marietta, at an ice cream shop in Atlanta, an ice skating rink – but they’ve all been portraits for boys.  I need some girl time!  I need some dress-up time, ballet class, arts & crafts, tea party or anything else your little girl loves.  Contact us today for information about our adventure sessions.

Studio News: Published!

 

A few weeks ago, I told you about my shoot for Outreach NC of author Mary Kay Andrews.  The issue was published and my image took the front cover.  Such an honor!

Mary Kay Andrews’s Avondale Estates home is so beautiful!  And it was a pleasure to photograph her and her home for the magazine and her fans.  MKA even mentioned our shoot on her Facebook page and on Pinterest.  …I’m blushing.

Picture of the Day: Atlanta Kids Portrait

 

Since I can’t share all of the session pictures in a “Picture of the Day,” sometimes I miss the opportunity to share some great images on the blog.  This image was one of them.  I’m editing through pictures for this client’s order and can’t resist sharing this one.  Dylan is a chocoholic, just like me, and as a treat at the end of her family’s session, her big brother, Spencer, gave her a giant Hershey bar.  She was so happy after eating some of it she ran barefoot in the grass laughing with unrestrained joy.  Then she rolled onto the ground and I grabbed this shot.  Pure JOY.

Picture of the Day: Dunwoody Family Photography

 

Spencer, Dylan their parents and grandmother were so much fun on Sunday.  We explored the lake and woods of the MJCCA (the Jewish Community Center in Dunwoody) and found some really picturesque spots.  In all the years I have been going to the MJCCA, I had no idea the lake and woods were even back there!  What a great surprise and a wonderful oasis.  I had a really hard time choosing just one picture for the blog so I didn’t.  I chose 4!  Enjoy!

This image is so expressive of Spencer and Dylan’s personalities.  Spencer is a calm, reserved and introspective older brother who watches out for his little sister, while Dylan is an energetic, smiley and funny little girl.  Love that I was able to capture this about them at such a picturesque spot.
