Picture of the Day: Sandy Springs Newborn

 

Baby Zipporah is here!  Isn’t that a great name?  So unusual but so traditional too.  Baby girl was born just 9 days ago and is so cute.  She is the first newborn I’ve photographed since David (my little boy), so it was really fun to be reminded of that amazing stage.  She’s a tiny little peanut – I could have stayed all day staring at her tiny fingers and toes.

Congratulations Heather, Jeremiah and big sister Ariella!  (Take a look at their last adorable family portrait at Morgan Falls Park)

Picture of the Day: 6 month old Baby Portrait

 

Aiden is the adorable baby boy of Elizabeth and Joe.  You may remember their wedding a few years ago and the beautiful wedding pictures they surround themselves with in their home here and here.  Since Elizabeth and I were pregnant at the same time and our boys are just one month apart, it’s nice to be able share the ups and downs with her of motherhood.  Aiden’s newborn portrait session was in March (which seems like forever ago, wow!) and it’s amazing how much he’s changed since then.  Now that he’s 6 months old, I can really see both mom and dad in his adorable face.  Isn’t he precious?

Kisses from mom!

Look at the connection he has with his daddy.  Love it.

Since one of David’s favorite lovey’s is his Goodnight Moon bunny, when I saw that Aiden has one too and loves it, I knew we had to include it in the pictures.  Love that grin!

I’ve been photographing beautiful Ariella since she was just 8 months old.  At one year, a fall portrait last year and at 18 months old, this cutie pie is always fun to spend time with.  Now she’s a big 2 years old and so full of personality.

In this first picture, as she got further away from mom and dad, she turned around to check that it was ok and when she turned back in my direction, this is the priceless look of toddler freedom.

Morgan Falls is a great place for family fun.  Their playground is awesome, state-of-the-art and partially shaded which I love. Look at that pure joy on the swings.

Ariella is about to be a big sister.  Love this snuggly moment with mom.

So excited to meet baby girl in a few weeks!

Picture of the Day: Atlanta Botanical Gardens

 

There are many Atlanta landmarks but none are as beautifully landscaped as the Atlanta Botanical Gardens.  The proof of how much work goes into maintaining it was obvious when we arrived just after they opened.  Landscapers were busy trimming, cleaning, clipping, weeding and pressure washing around every corner.  All that tending yields some stunning results.  And it provided a beautiful backdrop to a family portrait for Ellison, her parents, & Nana too!

Ellie is very expressive so it was really fun to capture her many faces.  She had everyone laughing with this scrunch-face.

I love this moment – the connection between Ellie and her parents is heartwarming and priceless.

This beautiful family of three was such a pleasure to photograph.  They were so relaxed and easy-going which definitely helped set the tone for the morning.  Little Bailey is 16 months old and was really fun to follow around.  Let’s be clear – I did the following.  At this age, it’s often difficult to get little ones to do anything specific,  I had a great time capturing her playing, reading Peter Rabbit and sucking her thumb.  So adorable!  This is such an adventurous and snuggly time, and because Bailey will have a little brother or sister soon, I know she is enjoying these last few months of alone time with mom and dad.  Enjoy this sneak peek, mom and dad!

So nice to have a beautiful day to work with after all the rain!  Don’t get me wrong, I love staying home and snuggling up with 5 month old David (can’t believe he’s already 5 months old!) and enjoying a day inside.  But it felt great to get out and enjoy the afternoon with this fun family.

Nora is the youngest and is such a girly-girl.  Look at that adorable pink dress.  And those eyes are breathtaking.

Wesley and younger brother Gavin have a great time together and definitely feed off each other.  I loved watching Gavin follow his brother’s lead.  Seeing him copy all that he does is so precious and so indicative of this age.  Gavin looks up to his brother so much and I loved stepping into their world for just a couple hours.  It makes me wonder what David will be doing at their ages.  Hopefully he’ll be having just as much fun.
Just love this moment of Wesley pulling his brother and sister in a Radio Flyer wagon.  Their personalities shine through – responsible big brother, inquisitive younger brother and adoring little sister.

I love it when life comes full circle. Back in the day, long before I opened my studio, Mark co-hosted an underground art show and exhibited my fine art photography!  Fast-forward to present day: Mark has a beautiful family and I’m shooting their portraits, featuring an adorable little 1-year-old girl named Sloane.  It was such a pleasure to reconnect and meet his awesome family!

This lovely family won a gift certificate for photography at their school’s auction.  I love donating gift certificates for so many reasons.  The schools and organizations benefit from the money that was generated from our donation, the family has a great time getting some pictures of their family, and I get a chance to meet some awesome families.  Mom told me that they hadn’t had any professional pictures taken since before their 3rd child was born, and he’s 6!  That’s a long time!  So I was thrilled spend some time with them at their beautiful Buckhead home and capture this moment in time.
