I can’t believe it is the last Day of April! This little man is already a month old so I better share him quickly before he gets any bigger. He has already changed so much and I love seeing his daily happenings on Facebook and Instagram!
I was so honored to help photograph this sweet boy. His Mom is the very talented wedding photographer, Liana Lehman Hall. I can remember holding my own newborns and at a week old I could already see the changes and growth in them (especially their heads!). It is cliche now but it really does go so fast. The same thing must have happened to Liana as she put the call out to her Atlanta Newborn Photographer friends to come [quickly] and help her out. Even when you are a photographer it is often easier to hand over newborns to get the best images. When you are Mom they smell you and don’t want to sleep as well. I went with my friends, Alice, Elizabeth and Jenny to capture Atticus and he couldn’t have helped us out any better than he did. I had planned on being more of a prop and position-er but did manage to catch several pictures of him with mostly my 100 mm lens (and usually one handed!).
I loved the colors in the above hat and had to take it off the orange dinosaur in the nursery for Atticus to wear. He was a good sport and didn’t mind at all!

Don’t you love the name Atticus?“When a child asks you something, answer him, for goodness sake. But don’t make a production of it. Children are children, but they can spot an evasion faster than adults, and evasion simply muddles ‘em.”
- spoken by Atticus Finch, by Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird
