W Family Sneak Peek ~ Athens, GA Children's Photography

I love capturing the adorable grins of sweet little preschoolers like this one! Once she warmed up to me, we couldn't keep her from smiling. Her mom brought a bouquet of flowers for a few of the photos, but ended up using them as a tool to get her to laugh. She was so much fun to photograph! Thanks, W Family, for letting me capture this time in your lives...I had a great time!

Through the Eyes of a Child ~ Athens, Georgia Children's Photographer

Through the eyes of a child, everything seems more amazing and wonderful. Like during my session with these adorable twin toddlers, everything made them laugh and smile. I had so much fun capturing their personalities on camera! They just celebrated their 2nd birthday, and you can really tell because their energy is endless! We played with bubbles, a wagon, cars, a ball, and anything else around that looked interesting (like the flower below). I had the pleasure of photographing them for the 1st birthday as well, and they've grown up so much since then (photo from 1st year session below). This time, we even got big brother and sister to hop in a few of the pictures too. I love seeing the world through a child's eyes and through their smile and laughter.

Here are the twins last year just after they turned 1 year old. Precious then and now!!

Product Spotlight: New Gallery Mounted Storyboards ~ Athens, Georgia Photography

I recently ordered a custom designed storyboard for a client in my new gallery mounted option, and I absolutely LOVE it! I love the way storyboards can literally tell a story of the special moments and relationships between family members. There are many sizes and design options to choose from and I will custom design it to meet your needs. The new gallery mount storyboards feature the custom photo design mounted on a wooden frame with a nice beveled edge. They come ready to hang or to display on an easel (easel sold separately).

Prices will remain the same on these storyboards for now (starting at $95), but will be increasing very soon! Email me if you have any questions or if you would like to order your own custom designed storyboard!!

As I continue to narrow down and edit the photos, I will post some more that show more of the fun and excitement of this couple's special day. Congratulations again, J and E!!

A Photo a Day Keeps the Doctor Away! Join me in Project 365! ~ Athens, GA Photographer

Believe it or not, I neglect to take many photos of my own family anymore. Now that I've been in business for a while, I intentionally do not take my camera with me as much so that I can have a break from photography. Don't get me wrong, I love photography...but it is now my job and no longer my hobby...and everyone deserves a weekend, right? :) I don't mind this except that I don't have as many candid shots as I would like of my own family and of my wonderful and quickly growing toddler.

Here is the last photo in my personal digital library
from the UGA vs. Kentucky game
So...I got inspired to do something about this when I came across a post about Project 365 on my friend Bridget's blog (who, by the way, has an excellent blog for moms out there!!). All there is to Project 365 is to take a photo every day and post it (on flickr, facebook, etc). Here's a link to Bridget's Project 365 flickr page to give you an idea of what I'm talking about. It can be a photo from a big event like a wedding or something so small like a new meal you made for dinner...anything at all! What a fun way to capture all the random, mundane moments that make up our every day lives. I read on someone's blog that completed Project 365, and she said that all those small moments that seemed to mean nothing at the time added up to be something really special at the end of the 365 days. I can't wait to chronicle this new year in a fun, brand new way!!

Anyone want to join me?? If so, here is a link to the 365 flickr group that I'm joining. Please post a comment here if you plan to join me so we can keep up with each other! I'm excited and hope to get my first photo posted in the next few days! Happy photographing!
