When you book a session with me, your kids will think I am a nice Mom with a big camera. They always give me their fake smiles for the first 5 minutes and hopefully they will eventually think I am funny enough to relax and have fun. They might even run off or offer suggestions on how we could do things differently. I have seen it all in 10 years of family sessions or with my own three kids. Photo Sessions are a big investment and I always hope parents can enjoy the moment despite their children well, being themselves! We always end up getting more than enough beautiful pictures and have a good time too. I can’t wait to photograph your family!
more about me
I am originally from Alabama and a graduate of Auburn University. I moved to the Atlanta Metro area after I graduated and have lived in the Smyrna Vinings area ever since.
Photography and preserving memories has always been a great passion of mine and I started my own portrait photography business 10 years ago. I have three children of my own and they have shown me how fast childhood passes by and that each stage is to be treasured. The cobbler’s kids have no shoes…I don’t take enough pictures of them but I never regret it when I do!
I am interested in capturing your children (and family) in a very beautiful way just as they are. I will help you find creative products to display your images and enjoy them every day. Tell a story on the walls of your home with a custom framed or canvas wall gallery. Luxurious albums that can be handed down as heirlooms are always a favorite. Hard drives of digital images will degrade over the years and eventually fail but a gallery wrapped canvas art piece is expected to last over a 100 years. What a great investment for a family to have and pass down!
printing is the best way to archive your photographic memories
Sessions with me: I am a natural light portrait photographer and schedule all of my sessions on location. I meet my clients at a favorite park, their home or wherever we might dream up. I would be happy to make suggestions if you don’t have a location in mind. I’m very relaxed and unrushed and vary my shooting style based on the personalities of the children I am working with. I might be calm and quiet with some or a little crazy and silly with others. I love to capture the smiles, the wonder, pouting and everything in between.
I always encourage Moms and Dads to get in front of the camera with their children. It is the best gift you can give your children to have your relationships captured during childhood. Do you have pictures of yourself as a child with your parents?
Newborn sessions: These run a little bit longer than a regular session to allow for lots of feeding and changing breaks. These sessions are best before a baby is 2 weeks old. Please contact me before your baby is born to get more information and to schedule. I really like capturing lifestyle portraits incorporating Mom and Dad as a backdrop for baby.
Clothing: I will give you many ideas and as much help as you need after we book our session. I love to style families and I am always happy to help if needed. It will be easier than you think!
