McCracken Family | Atlanta Family Photographer

Our session was my first meeting with the McCracken Family– and what a precious family they were!

The boys were just as sweet as could be, and really were troopers on what turned out to be one of the chilliest mornings that I’ve shot this season!

But Mom and Dad rallied, and even when their little ones got chilly, diverted frustration by acting silly, passing the boys “toys” (such as Dad’s watch, lol!), and letting little Andrew snuggle up with his favorite blanket.

I am loving scrolling back through these pictures and seeing the realness in these moments– those are the ones that I treasure the most <3

Thanks, McCracken Family, for playing, smiling and just generally being your beautiful selves for my camera!

Falcone Family |Piedmont Park Family Photographer

Y’all.

I have been wanting to share these photos for several weeks, and am so excited to have finally reached this project in the queue!

The Falcones, like many of my amazing Fall clients, had to reschedule their session due to the buckets of rain that dumped on Atlanta last month… and once before that due to illness!

But like I always say, “all’s well that ends well!” And end well it did <3

I am just loving everything about this session from the light, to the giggles, to the tickles, to the sibling love… I can’t imagine it having gone better on any other day.

Falcones, thanks for being so lively and fun… and for giving me some serious gorgeousness to capture!

Gambrell Family | Buckhead Family Photographer

It was around this time three years ago that I met little Ellie for the first time.

She was only a few weeks old at that photo shoot, and I was nearly 8 months pregnant myself!

So much changes in 3 years, right?

Every time I take Miss Ellie’s picture, she delivers big smiles and huge doses of adorableness, and that was true again this time.

I am sure that her little brother (coming soon!) will do the same!

Thanks to the Gorgeous Gambrell Family for another amazing session!

Long Family | Decatur Family Photographer

It was a chilly morning when I met up with the Long family in Downtown Decatur several weeks ago.

But no one really noticed because we were having so much fun:)

Ward was just as dapper and good natured as ever, and was excited to have his picture taken!

Colette was much more receptive to my sneaky smile-eliciting tactics last year when she was toddling around Callanwolde… but now that she is a year older and wiser, she decided that the smiles would have to come on her terms!

That was just fine with me, because I love photographing kiddos doing the things that make them smile naturally… so she jumped, ran, tickled, kissed, examined… and I was there to capture every resulting sweet expression!

Long Family, you guys are the best, and I love photographing your beautiful clan from year to year!

Blackburn Family | Dunwoody Family Photographer

Thanks to the crazy weather this season, the Blackburn Family got a double dose of me this season!

We met on a day when there was a 0% chance of rain, but on my way to their shoot, I started seeing mist on my windshield.

Long story short, we started to go forward, but decided to stop and reschedule.

The rescheduled session was fabulous, but I also got attached to a few favorite images from the first day too (so of course I included a few images from session one in their set too)!

But the best part about all of the weather madness was that I got to catch up with my sweet sorority sister, Shannon, and play with her absolutely precious children (is it just me or does her little girl look just like a baby Drew Barrymore?) TWICE!

Seriously, this the best job:)
