Baby Gabriel

Back in May, I had the opportunity to photograph Michelle and Ryan who were expecting thier first baby for my Bellies in Bloom project.

At Bellies in Bloom she won one of the doorprizes and excitedly choose ours out of all the prizes!

Baby Gabriel Ryan arrived on June 23, 2007 and has been a delight to them and their family.

I visited them last week for Gabriel's photo session.

He is a cute baby but was not the least bit interested in having his photograph taken.

Here are a few of my favorites from the session. There are more in the slideshow

I hope you enjoy these!

Waiting on Lilly

My friend, Tracy and her husband are expecting and baby girl in the next few weeks. As a gift I will be helping them document the pregnancy and birth.

Tracy and I met through The Georgia Birth Network and she is a doula helping families bring new lives into the world.

This is a bittersweet time for Tracy and her family as baby Lilly has been diagnosed with Trisomy 18 and the doctors are not sure how she will be affected.

I am amazed at the strength that Tracy and Robert have and am excited to be there with them to document Lilly's arrival and whatever the Lord has in store for us.

Here are some of my favorite images from the sessions. There are more in the slideshow which you can view HERE

Tracy, Robert & Lilly, you are in our prayers and I will see you soon.


Break a Leg...

In other words.... the best of luck to one of our young clients. Nicole is auditioning for the role of Wendy in Peter Pan next week and needed to update her headshots.

This talented young girl is the daughter of a fellow Girl Scout volunteer who I met at Daycamp this year. Nicole and I had fun chatting while taking her pictures at her home, especially since I got my start in theater and have helped costume Peter Pan!

Her cat Princess even joined us for a few images, but she was not so sure about the camera!
Here are a few of my favorites from the session:

I can't wait to hear how the audition went!


Importance of Family

Mike and I were honored to be asked to photograph the Savage-Taylor Family Reunion's Banquet. One of the organizers was Emma's teacher last yesr, Mr. Daryl Weathers.

This family reunion dinner was such fun, it was just part of the weekend's activities. The evening was part awards banquet, education and celebration and as every good family reunion included food, hugs and laughter. The message of the evening, "never ever give up on your dreams".

As we watched the evening unfold, we were very impressed by the love, togetherness, and sense of purpose this family exhibited.

We put the images together in a slideshow that you can view HERE and following are a few of my favorite images.

She Said Yes

Today was a very special day for a very special couple. Kevin has been planning on asking Bonnie to marry him for some time, and planned a very special moment to ask "Will You Marry Me?". The city of Acworth has this electronic sign on Main Street and he arranged for it to be programmed to help him propose this afternoon.

Kevin brought Bonnie to the sign to look at some landscaping.... and I am there to capture things as they unfold, paparazzi style. Looks like the fireworks tonight will be REALLY special for this couple!

We knew they would be at the Fireworks tonight celebrating, so we surprised them there with the first showing of their slideshow which surprised and delighted Bonnie and Kevin, Kevin's parents, and friends.

Catherine & I can't wait for their wedding next April!

Congratulations Bonnie and Kevin!
