Samantha + Mom | Marietta Mothers Day Photographer

Picking out gifts is a seriously hard thing.

But this husband (/father) hit the nail on the head!

He contacted me the week before Mother’s Day and asked if I could help facilitate a surprise photo session with his 3 month old daughter and wife… and he even suggested inviting his wife’s mom for the session.

Well, a gesture like was certainly not one I could refuse!

And the icing on the cake of this precious gesture is that I got to hang out with beautiful Samantha ūüôā

Cramer Family, thanks so much for letting me help you commemorate this Mother’s Day!

Emma Kate Turns 3 | My Little Pony Birthday Photographer

Summer is here, and that means that that is is birthday season for the Bolen girls!

Mom, Diane, has three girls with summer birthdays… and the first to be celebrated is Emma Kate!

Emma Kate’s party boasted not only spectacularly adorable pony-themed games and food… actual ponies arrived on the scene!

One hilariously photogenic¬†moment¬†was when Emma Kate, who had loved previous pony rides, refused to ride the ponies brought in for her party (Moms– we’ve all been there, right?).

Though she finally reluctantly agreed to sit on a pony for a photo, she decided that she would rather look at the ponies rather than riding them!

But that was fine since there were tons of outdoor games (and space to dance, which Emma Kate took full advantage of!!) and bunnies to pet!

Thanks again for letting me capture your special day, Emma Kate!

Micky + Frank | Local Three Wedding Photographer Atlanta

Micky had been single for 40 years when she and Frank found each other.

They fell completely in love… and after they decided to marry, and their families could not have been happier to celebrate with them in a big way!

From the gorgeous and thoughtful decor, to the favors, to the venue, the kids, kids-in-law, and grandkids all pitched in to make their mom/grandmother and dad/grandfather’s day special.

The sweetness of this precious family made me tear up more than once, and I was most certainly not the only one.

God bless this precious couple and their family… and thanks so much for choosing me to capture your special day!

Maggie Turns One | Oglethorpe College Family Photographer

Ah, precious Maggie… how can you be one!?

It seems like it was just yesterday that I was photographing your eldest brother’s newborn session… and now everyone is getting so big!

I had so much fun watching you explore your environment (even tasting it at times!!) and watching you hold your own around your big brothers!

You are so beautiful… and so loved.

Thanks for letting me take your pictures again, Tarbuttons!

Alyna turns 1 | Callanwolde Family Photographer

Precious Alyna was even more fun at her 1-yr session as she was at 6 months!

Doesn’t she have the best smile ever?

I had so much fun chasing her around the Callanwolde property, and fully utilizing those gorgeous blooming tulips!!

When it came to the cake, she was not too impressed with the sugary, messy stuff… I only wish that could be my attitude toward cake ūüėČ

Thanks again, Shah Family, for another wonderful session!
