Alpharetta Family Photographer | Growth & Change

Yesterday my unbelievably wonderful daughter stepped onto a school bus for the first time and rode off into the sunRISE (literally) as she embarked on yet another amazing chapter of her life. With every new milestone my children experience I am reminded of the beauty AND inevitability of change and growth. It takes my breath away knowing that they truly are their own beings with their own journey’s and we are merely here to guide and protect them. Sometimes that growth comes with pain and struggle, but mostly with great joy.

As the summer is coming to a close I find that I’m a bit reflective of this idea of growth. I made a concerted effort over the summer to slow down. To focus on family and find my peace again. It has truly been a life changing summer full of adventure, as well as, some much needed stillness. We took a family outing to visit a sunflower farm over the summer and I will share some photos below, because I think these flowers are so symbolic of that personal growth we all experience. That constant searching for the “light”.  They are so statuesque, strong, happy and always looking towards the sunshine. Life can really throw us for a loop sometimes, kick us while we’re down even, but the most beautiful things come from our struggles. Perception is key. It is my hope that everyone can experience that same feeling of standing tall, peacefulness imprinted on your face and in your heart while you bask in the glorious light of the sun. We were all given this life for reason, LOVE it and EMBRACE it with everything you’ve got!!!!!!

North Georgia Photographer | Yonah Mountain Vineyards

Oh how I LOVE it when the lovely folks at Yonah Mountain Vineyards ask me to take photographs. If you have not visited this AMAZING place you must make a point to do so ASAP!!! They have seriously incredible wines, a gorgeous tasting room and wine cave. And they are in the process of building an event facility!!  All surrounded by beautiful vineyards, rolling hills, and serene mountains. I never want to leave when I visit. Unreal.

This is the outside of the tasting room, which is just incredible.

Marietta Child & Family Photographer | Brothers

I always enjoy working with this family for custom portraits. It was super cute to watch these boys play together now that the youngest is a bit older.  They are hilarious together. And the oldest is such a wonderful big brother.  We were fortunate to take these photos during one of those nice fall like days from this past weekend so it was a perfect setting and temperature to get some fun portraits of these guys doing what boys do best, PLAYING!!!! Great kids and beautiful family! Here’s the sneak peek…

Atlanta Baby & Child Photographer | Siblings

I had such a great time at this custom portrait session. I love this fun and sweet little family and was super excited to meet the youngest as he was not yet born at our last session together. He was such a little ball of cuteness!!! This first photo is obviously not your standard “portrait” but I love it because I think it really captures this awesome little child and her fun loving, spunky and adventurous spirit.

Atlanta Baby and Family Photographer | One Year Old Boy

It was so much fun to see and work with this awesome little family again. They are a blast and this little guy is AWESOME!!  I last saw him at his newborn session so it was so great to see how his personality has emerged and his wonderful way of engaging in the world. These guys wanted to do their session at Piedmont Park and we finally made it happen. Our custom photo shoot has been rained out two other times and this morning was super foggy with a small chance of rain, but we went for it anyway and I am glad we did. We captured some great shots! Here is a look at some of our time together…
