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*

Baby Girl Cady | Atlanta Newborn Photographer

Wellllll, here we are again with a little blog post of a tiny one that I had the pleasure of photographing as she made  her way into this world. I was originally going to try out studio lights with Little Miss Cady, but after the long drive to get to her shoot I chickened out on using studio lights and just went with natural night *hides face in shame*. Anyway, Cady slept sooooo well during her shoot……..even through all of her darling outfit changes. LOL!

Her original due date was on the 4th of July, but she came a tad early. Love her little red, white, and blue romper!

Sweet little details

Baby Girl Chloé | Cumming Newborn Photographer

Pretty excited about this baby girl because I thiiiiink she might be growing up in front of my lens!:)I mean, I’ve done maternity, birth, and now her newborn pics. I think she’s a fan of the camera just as long as she can stay awake. Luckily, this would be the only shoot that would require her to sleep because Little Miss Chloé likes to be in the know (wiiiide awake). LOL!

& Ahhh…my recent moms have gotten away with not being in these shots. I’m going to have to start back insisting. Lol! JK…sorta!

I finally woooon! She fell asleep for a millisecond!;)

Baby Girl Blaire | Atlanta Newborn Photographer

So a few weeks ago I decided that I was sick and tired of the rain and cloudy days. I wasn’t loving the horrible available light. I was thinking that maybe I should take a little power from Mother Nature, and give studio light a shot, specifically for little tiny ones. Jae responded to my cry, and was all game for her sweet baby girl Blaire being my newborn model.:)

I love love love these, but I’m definitely not ready to ditch my beloved natural light. The main reason is because as you all know (or you will know if you’re interested in a shoot), I do not have a studio. I lug all of my gear from home to home. I’ve had clients tell me how much they prefer this for newborn shoots, but it is a lot to tote around and using studio lights just added to my luggage…thanks to Jae and her mom for helping this bag lady out a bit! I guess each shoot will just vary according to the weather. Anywhoooo, take a look at the itty bitty model!

 

She wasn’t a huge fan of falling asleep outside of her mommy’s arms, but I won…for a bit. 

Sometimes I just can’t choose if I adore color or black and white!
