Anxiously Awaiting Baby McCalla! | Augusta Maternity Photographer

If you’re here, and you follow my Facebook business page, you might already be aware of my admittance for being THAT friend that randomly asks Renee “Soooo when will you and Clint be having a little one?!” I regret that now because I know that these things happen for us all at different ages and stages. I’ve just always seen Renee as a mother…and a darn good one so I was anxious for her.

NOW…I am just so excited that THIS is the season for my friend and her husband. I am  just so excited to see how amazing they will be at this parenting thing. I am just so excited that they chose me to capture this life changing thing that is happening in their lives.

I love them together. So supportive of one another…and so loving. Clint McCalla III (whom I will definitely call Tre) is going to be one blessed little boy to call these two his parentals!

I love your little bump, Renee!

So EASY getting them to have those little in between moments that I always adore. Genuine smiles.

They were my first clients to want to incorporate paint into their session. Clint’s handprints on her bump turned out so cute!

 The Clint’s special signature. 

&&& I never got to share these images from Renee and her sister’s session together. I had to sit on them until Renee was a little further along and ready to share her new joy! These make me wish I had a sister to be pregnant with…and go through parenthood with. SO BLESSED THESE TWO ARE FOR THIS EXPERIENCE THEY GET TO SHARE!!! 

Aw. “The Boys” are going to be the best of friends. I’m looking forward to some sessions of them together in the future. I meeean, they’ve had sessions together since the womb…they HAVE to have some when they get here!;)

LOL! These are probably my faves! SO them. Janet being craaazy. Renee cracking up to the point of tears!

Thanks for looking!

Jacque Evans Hanna - OMG! I think this was my best maternity shoot of all. I love it…..I guess because I love Janet, Renee, and Clint made it more emotional for me. Great job baby girl! I’m really proud of you. I wish I could have had shots like this when you and your brother were born. I guess I have to give birth to a photography genius in order for someone else to be able to cherish the memories that I couldn’t and what two better ladies. You better start training me to take your pictures!!

A beautiful family on a beautiful day | Lenox Park Family Photographer

What a sweet family of three I had the pleasure of working with. They came up from Augusta for their photo shoot, and totally rocked Lenox Park! Cohen was/is probably the most well behaved one (almost two) year old in the entire world. He did whatever his parents told him to do…even smiled on cue. I learned a valuable lesson during this shoot, tell parents to bring their child’s favorite toys or things that they love. Working with children, you would think that I’d came up with that idea, but nope…it was all Conswala! He rarely separated from his football and I love the shots of him and his trusty little prop.

Happpppy FIRST birthday Taylor! | Augusta Child Photographer

This baby girl will always and forever hold a special place in my heart. She was the verrrrry first newborn that I had the privilege of photographing. She sure did set the bar extremely high. She came out beautiful and she slept so peacefully throughout majority of her shoot.

Little 5 Points with The Diene’s!

I can be completely honest here and just say that I was soooo nervous about this shoot. It was completely out of my comfort zone. There were no little ones involved, and it was not to be in a familiar park or in the comfort of their home. Whitney knew from the start that she wanted something different, something honoring her husband’s African culture, aaand she wanted an urban vibe. I think we both knew that Little Five Points would be PERFECT for what she wanted. I just had no idea how I would shoot in such a busy part of town on a Sunday evening. I had no idea where we would shoot because I’ve never even thought about shooting a couple or family down there. Luckily, I’m aaalways up for different and a challenge…and I’m starting to love the adrenaline rush I get from “different” and the unexpected.

Anyway, they were perfect together, and vibed so well together that they needed very little direction. I hope that they felt like this was more of an experience than anything because I truly had a blast during their shoot. We talked, laughed, and they posed here and there. They were extremely easy to work with from the very beginning! Their shoot has me excited to get married……..and to do another photo-shoot in Little Five Points!

I’m hoping to work with you guys again in the near future!!!!

How awesome is the custom attire?! Little details of who they are, weaved all into this shoot. Gosh, they rocked it!

Having a client show up with props unique to their family is simply a photographers dreeeeam!

Love these shots of Whitney dressed in traditional Senegal attire.

Thanks for looking!!!

Baby Gabrielle | Atlanta Newborn Photographer

You know, there are just some people that you meet and INSTANTLY connect with. This family was just so warm and inviting when I arrived for Baby Gabrielle’s session. I could have sat and chatted with Sakinah ALLLL day! I also love that she’d done a bit of her own research and had the place nice and toasty when I got there (although I might have been a sweaty little mess, I loved that it was warm). Baby G slept like a champ for majority of her session, and I just adore all of the beautiful shots I was able to capture for her.

Thanks to Unchong & Craig for connecting us!:)

Lifestyle shots that include the parents are the best! *swoons*
