I think they love each other!

It’s not always easy to get siblings to hug, hold hands, or even act like they remotely like each other.  So, I always take full advantage of the situation while they are young.  Case in point, these two ADORABLE kiddos that belong to a dear friend of mine.  We had a great time for our quick studio Smile Session!


Doesn’t he look like a little man in this one.  I’m in love….  :)

My favorite….. HUGS (or SQUEEZES).

A beautiful fall morning, a cast, and an infectious giggle.

When mom sent me a text message the night before our session to let me know she was at Children’s Hospital getting a cast on her little guy, I have to admit I was a little worried.  She wanted to go ahead with the session, which was a good thing considering the cast will be on his arm for 4-8 weeks (and it’s getting colder everyday around here!)

As it turns out, there was nothing to worry about because this is one happy kid.  He played, giggled, made silly faces, and had me laughing the whole time.  Cast or not, this was a great time to capture this cutie pie before he gets all grown up!

Anytime we tickled him, the giggles were so contagious.  I couldn’t help but laugh right along with him.

Oh how he loves his Daddy!  And science!  But mostly, his Daddy!  :)

Love this one with mom – love, love, love.

Extended Family Photo Session

I was so excited when Stacey contacted me to do a photo session for her parents as gift.   So, rather than just giving them a picture of her own family as a gift, she is gifting a memory that will not soon be forgotten.  It made me think of how much I would love to get some fun pictures of my extended family since many of us are right here in Atlanta.  Since I’m usually taking the pictures, I guess I never thought of doing something “big” like that.   But, I digress.  We had a great time in the park, and based on my previous sessions with miss Avery, I knew we would get some wonderful images.

Stacey told me she wanted lots of candid, fun images, so we worked really hard to get Avery in the mood.  This included swinging, hugging games, me jumping up and down (and making a fool of myself), and there might have been a little candy involved…..

Avery’s grandparents were SO.MUCH.FUN!  They played, made silly faces, got down on the ground (ew, dirt?), and had a blast with us.   And this sweet kiss…. be still my heart.

Such good sports!  Uncle Scott and Mimi hamming it up to get some giggles out of Avery.  The things we will do for a smile right?

Sweet Family of Three

This Fall has been so beautiful.  The leaves changing color, the crisp air, and seeing all my wonderful clients and friends (that’s the best part)!  I always look forward to this session because Mom and I have been friends since our first session in 2008 – FOUR years ago!   Watching miss “C” grow up has been such a delight.  We always have such a fun time, and I have to put in a shameless plug for her dad, Scott, who has just started his own Landscaping Business (in case anyone’s looking -http://www.facebook.com/ArtisticOutdoorLandscapes).

I love this shot – oh my goodness!

Can you tell we had a blast?!

I thought it might be fun to show this image.  I knew when I took the image that I wanted a certain “look” for it.  On the left is the original, and the right is my artistic version.  Can you totally see the teenager already?

My little Diva!  :)

Love you guys!

Two boys and a girl….again.

Honestly, it’s hard to believe that two years have gone by since our last session.  I still feel like it was yesterday when Jacob and Kylie were in the 2 year old class together, holding hands in their Halloween costumes.  But alas, time does go quickly, and our little ones grow up.

We started our session, and before I pressed the shutter button on the first picture, it started to rain.  We ran for cover, then repeated the process.  It started to rain again.  BUT, fifteen minutes later, the sky opened up and the sun came bursting out!  YAY!!!!!!!  And, well, you know how it goes from there.  All smiles, giggles and fun!

Brotherly love.  Such a sweet and loving big brother too.  I know Jacob will always look up to him.  :)

And little sister is all grown up, with lots of spunk.  She just loved being goofy with me, and I couldn’t help but giggle with her.

Yes, I’m obsessed with comparison pictures.  I had to do it.  Crazy the change two years can make right??

And, my FAV, FAV, FAVORITE!  Giving mom some love.  For all the hard work each day, we get paid in hugs.  And it’s worth every. single. second.

I feel honored and lucky to be the one to capture these moments.  THANK YOU!
