Snow Days in Athens

Dull, brown, grass is all we get for a winter backdrop in Georgia, making me slightly envious of photographers in more northern climates (although, not really. I would freeze.) The magical, reflective, snowy brilliance that seems synonymous with winter in other places does make beautiful winter photos. This winter has humored us with not one, but two beautiful snows here in Athens, Georgia. And I had the pleasure of playing with my camera in the rare and novel southern snow. My littles and I can’t help but stand at the window and watch the snow fall for hours…we are completely mesmerized. And then I take pictures.

Wendell at 3 months – Lifestyle

I met up with Sarah and Wendell this past weekend at a park to photograph Wendell at 3 months old. Afterward, we walked back to their home and I took a few genuine and candid shots there. Wendell loves being bounced on the ball to sleep- having a yoga instructor for a mama makes him one lucky baby!  It was a beautiful morning, and fun session that blended portraiture and lifestyle – a perfect medley for me, and I think a lovely way to capture baby milestones. This isn’t the first time that I have photographed Sarah (and Wendell for that matter!); you can check out her maternity shoot here!

I have a soft spot for a mama and baby session. I think it should be a category in itself.

Fun Family Portrait Session: The Cymermans

The Cymermans photo shoot is a paragon of why I love shooting a family portrait session at a place that holds special meaning for my clients. They took me for a walk on one of their favorite little paths near their house and they felt so at home. It really set the mood for the shoot and we all had a great time. Hope specifically asked me to try to include the water tower in some of the photos, because it was a special landmark for Samuel that meant he was home. I love how these turned out- fun, playful, honest family portraits showing Jeff, Hope and Samuel’s beautiful personalities and love for each other.

The Evans Family

It seems that the world did not want this newborn session to happen. A lot worked against us – technological failures, freezing cold weather, finals week, a baby that wanted to nurse a lot. But, we somehow made it happen and I am happy with the result – honest, natural light photos of a sweet family and newborn. I especially like the sling photos- Zeph seemed most content when he was chilling near his mama in the sling (and of course, when he was nursing too!).
