Jackson|Class of 2017

One of my favorite aspects of photographing individuals is the opportunity to capture layers of personality. Working with seniors allows me to do just that. I purpose to capture not only portraits for posterity but also to allow people to relax and be natural in front of the lens showing their souls more than just their smiles. 

This session was super fun because not only was I able to work with a senior, but a senior guy, a photographic first for me. 

Jackson was amazing in front of the camera! It is so hard to choose which images to share because I really loved them all.

Lake Redwine Family Photographer |The D Family

This past spring I had the joy of photographing the D Family.  Not only are they fun, but they really love each other, and that makes for a wonderful session capturing their relationships.

Newnan, Georgia Family and Child Photographer | Spring Portrait Booking

It's time to start thinking about spring portraits sessions. I know, I can hardly believe that we are just a few days away from February and that Easter is March 27th this year! Spring is sneaking up on us quickly! With all this warm weather, we are bound to have an early blooming season. 

I am now booking spring sessions so that we can get your littles in front of the camera as soon as the sap starts rising. I'll begin taking spring portraits March 18th-April 30th. After that, you know Georgia flips to summer, so don't miss the soft greens, daffodils, and cherry blossoms that last just a few minutes, it seems.

For more information on sessions with me, my home page offers a Client Guide that you can download. It covers everything you need to know, at a glance!  Additionally,  I would love to set up a time to consult with you on a spring session. You'll receive a welcome packet with additional information, and I'll walk you through my process and all of your questions! All sessions are booked with a $150 retainer fee which covers my time from consult to the night you see your images for the very first time. Prints, products, and files are sold separately.

Chattahoochee Hills Family Photographer | How to capture your kids on an outing

It's not often that I get to photograph my family on an outing.  I usually opt to bring along my trusty iPhone to Instagram bits and bobs of our day. However, the day we went to Serenbe, in Chattahoochee Hills, was a gorgeous winter's day so I decided to bring the big guns! But, any camera is great to have when you are out and about. The best camera is the one you have on you!

 Serenbe is so unique.  It's a combination of farm, residential living, and haven for creatives. You can even grab lunch while you are there!  Now FYI, Serenbe does not allow professional photography sessions without a permit, but personal photographs of your visit are welcome! I came as a mom this day and just documented our fun as a family.  I'm so glad I did! We had a blast!

Family outings are definitely something we moms want to capture for posterity.  Today, I'm going to share a few of my tips for documenting your family moments because I know you want memorable images of these happy golden years with your kids!

1. Catch the action! Nothing tells how it feels to be somewhere than action in your photographs.

2. Photograph the details that make a location special. The animals at Serenbe are part of the charm, so I wanted to include them.

3. Capture what it feels like to be there.  Ok, this is a big one! So many times, as parents documenting our fun, we ask our kids to stop the fun and smile for the camera. And we give that dreaded request, "say cheese!"  The smiles are cute, but there is no sense of the experience in those photographs. Don't ask your kids to pose all the time, just capture them as they are. This makes for a more memorable photograph of your day.

4. Utilize the landscapes and structures around you. Many people, when they see something neat-o, just take a picture of that neat-o thing.  But, I think you should put your family into the neat-o thing for a more memorable image. Years from now, you may not remember why you thought something was neat-o, but you will love that you have the image of your family!

5. Now, grab a few smiles! Smiles and poses are fine and dandy as a part of your day and help tell the story. They just aren't the whole story! So, use these request to smile and make eye contact for when it counts.

Bonus tip: Forget perfection! Be present in your day and just look for the opportunity to apply some of these tips when you do bring out the camera. Don't worry about smudges on faces, messy hair, and mud on the pants. This is real and real is okay!

So, that's 5 tips and a bonus for capturing memorable photos of your family on an outing! I have more tips to share in my free download on how to take better photos of your kids!

Peachtree City Family Photographer | The C Family

I had the pleasure of photographing the C Family for their Christmas card photos back in early November and is my custom, I hold off on sharing Christmas card sessions until cards go out to prevent spoilers. Since there is just one week to go until Christmas, I think we are safe!

I had so much fun photographing this cutie patootie family with their perfect outfit coordination! They did a wonderful job bringing together a cohesive look!
