Atlanta Newborn and Family Photographer | Baby Tessa

I have been shooting a lot of newborn sessions lately and I am loving the sweetness and the detail that come with these types of portraits.  Newborns allow me to take my time and focus on those precious details with my macro lens and really capture the wonderful emotions that come with a new life.  However, we always have a few good outtakes between capturing the photos that make your heart swoon, because lets be honest, newborns can definitely be a challenge!  But when the mom and I finally get the baby back to sleep and the stars aline, a little piece of heaven is captured and it is so rewarding.  It is always such an honor to be the first professional to capture the little one's portraits and my hope is that my photographs will be treasured for years to come.  I have loved watching my newborn clients grow up over the years and I look forward to taking this little girl's photos throughout the first year of her life.  Below are a few favorites from sweet Tessa's newborn session a couple weeks ago.  I just can't get over her lashes in the first shot below. So pretty! Hope you enjoy.   

Atlanta Newborn and Family Photographer | Makris Family

One of the best parts of my job is getting to watch families grow and welcome a new addition into their lives and more importantly their hearts.  I had the privilege of capturing sweet Peter's first portraits as well as the entire Makris family.  Their session was so much fun and I love when clients start feeling more like friends.  Thank you Makris family for welcoming me into your home and letting me capture some sweet memories for you.  I hope you enjoy.

Atlanta Event Photographer | Brooks' 1st Birthday

This weekend, I got to photograph a precious little boy's first birthday party.  The western themed celebration took place at Chastain Park's Horse Stables and Brooks' sweet mama really outdid herself with the adorable decorations!  There were so many cute details, and she thought of everything down to a candy bar, crafts for the older kids, and a mini western saloon photo booth.  Definitely the best kid birthday party I had ever been too! The weather was also perfect, and everyone enjoyed being outside and seeing the sunshine for once.  It was such a special event to celebrate the first year of this little boy's life and see all of the friends and family that have been alongside them in this new chapter.  Enjoy some of my favorites below and happy first birthday, Brooks!
