Lucy’s Newborn Session – Buckhead | Atlanta Newborn Photographer

Lucy made her debut into the world a couple weeks early… just in time for her parents to move back into their home they’d been renovating for the past several months. Nothing like cutting it close! 🙂 I had the most lovely morning shooting at their beautiful, light-filled home — their newly-added master bedroom was the perfect spot for the majority of our photos. Lucy was bright-eyed for most of our session, but she was so content and happy to be swaddled and held by her parents and big sister, Harper, who loved kissing on her. Just before our session, I found out that Emily grew up in Franklin, TN, which is where my husband is from… such a small world! It is so much fun bonding with clients over common interests and friends. Enjoy these favorites from Miss Lucy’s September newborn session!

Leighton’s 2 Year Milestone Session – Smyrna | Atlanta Childrens Photographer

My baby is TWO. In so many ways, this second year of her life has flown by infinitely faster than the first one did. We’re on the go most days, and she’s learning new things weekly, if not daily. Watching her navigate the world around her and learning how things work, seeing her personality blossom, and getting to experience things with her as she does them for the first time… it’s awe-inspiring and sort of takes my breath away at times. With each passing month and year, I am more and more grateful for the blessing of staying home with her while running a business I truly love.

Leighton Lane, we wish you the happiest of birthdays, sweet baby girl! We love you more than you will ever know. Thank you for making us parents two years ago, and thank you for making every day a joy (and for putting up with my photo session ideas). 😉

 

Ila’s Newborn Session – Fayetteville | Atlanta Newborn Photographer

Ila is the third little girl that Raven and Caan have welcomed into their family, and oh, how she is loved! Her two big sisters doted on her, couldn’t wait to hold her for photos, and helped pick out headbands for her to wear during solo shots. She is going to have so much fun growing up with those two loving on her (or maybe bossing her around when they’re older?). 🙂 I just adore getting to document this intimate, special time in my clients’ lives… bringing baby home and settling into a new normal with a tiny new family member. Welcome to the world, Ila!

Leighton’s 2nd Birthday Party – Vinings | Atlanta Childrens Photographer

My daughter, Leighton, is and has been obsessed with puppies for probably a year now. We have a 6yr old Rottweiler named Coco who is Leighton’s best buddy, so it’s easy to see why she has such a strong love for dogs.  She also loves to jump, and she’s constantly got cake on the brain… so when it came time to start planning her 2nd birthday party, a puppy PAWty with cupcakes and a bounce house was a no-brainer. She wore a black polka-dotted dress as a nod to Dalmatians, and by the end of the night, it was completely covered in sprinkles, icing, and Doritos. Just as it should be, right?! Here are some highlights (ok, a lot) from her 2nd Birthday Puppy Pawty… I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

(And thank you to my sweet cousin for snapping a few photos for me so I could be in them!)

A Family of Super Heroes – Alpharetta | Atlanta Family Photographer

Well… to be accurate, it’s actually a family of two super heroes and one villain. 😉 When I received an email asking to redeem this photo session won at a local auction, I was excited to meet this family of three. And when Mom asked if they could dress as super heroes, I knew I was in for a treat! These dress-up photo sessions have become somewhat of a yearly tradition for them, and I was honored to photograph Wonder Woman (x2) and Ultron.  They were busy battling each other for much of the shoot, but they did take a break every now and then to give me some sweet smiles. 🙂 Enjoy these highlights!
