atlanta-yearbook dedications

It is that time of year! Yearbook dedications and tribute pages are typically due to school yearbook committees at the first part of the year. I offer complimentary design for my full portrait family sessions through October. Designs are custom to each child with you adding your tribute wording. Often we use a student’s favorite colors and style for design. However, I love when the boys says “surprise me!” I think the Chalkboard background is my favorite.

Portrait Sessions should be scheduled 3 weeks to a month before tributes are due to your school. We can include an updated individual portrait of your middle school or high school student and a smaller size of the full family. Bonus – Christmas Card picture taken care of! 😉  Parents usually have a lot of questions about how this is done but it is easy…except for coming up with the perfect words straight from your heart to convey to your child!

A tribute page is a wonderful memento for your graduating child (and yourself). You will be so glad you did this in May!





Welcome to the World!

This Atlanta Newborn Baby Boy is gorgeous (okay, handsome). He is “chill” and absolutely perfect from what I can tell! It was a joy to hold him on his one week birthday.atlantanewborn-babyatlanta-newborn-babyatlantanewborn-baby-nurseryI may be a little obsessed with this cool nursery decor especially the wallpaper. Dad is a pilot and I love the airplane touches just like my little boys had when they were little. We even heard airplanes flying overhead during our session which was fun.


Welcome to the World, Baby Boy. I can’t wait to watch you grow!




For up to five family members.  Contact me for availability and booking.  These sessions are quick and focused on the family as a whole for holiday cards and gifts. For individual portraits of children, you might consider a full session instead.

Happy Holidays!




first day of school, hooray!


I love this back to school chalkboard I found at Target in the Dollar Spot. Take a look for yourself but I bet they are gone.  I think I love these new chalk pencils even more!

Cobb County Schools are in full swing and the rest of Georgia will be back in school soon. We can officially fill in “my teacher is” now and by next week all my kiddos will be in school full time. I am already missing summer and wishing I could sleep later.  My goal is getting all three of mine in one back to school picture very soon. It may not happen. Having 3 in 3 different schools has proven to be challenging so far so wish me luck!


Chalkboard Notes:  Yes, she said she wants to be a Butler. We may have made up the weight and height. Maybe…



back to school supplies




marietta family fourBaby Luke is the newest addition to this precious Marietta family of four. I wish every newborn in the world could be loved on like this one! He is so sweet and I love seeing how much he looks like his big brother. I wonder if he will be as musical?little boys brothermother of four family

This is a lovely family and I am excited to add to their growing wall gallery as their baby boys are born and grow bigger and bigger. What matters most to them hangs on the wall in a collection to enjoy at all times!


Newborn Sessions

***Newborn sessions are best held before 2 weeks of age. Lifestyle family sessions capturing both Mom, Dad and siblings are the best memories to capture at this special time of life.
