Aww, Emberlyn Rae. . .I seriously can’t get enough of you!! I’ve seen a lot happen in your Mommy and Daddy’s life - all the good things before your sweet face arrived. Their fun engagement, their gorgeous wedding day, I got to photograph them while you were in your mommy’s belly. When you were just a few days old, I got to hold you and document how tiny you were. And now, here you are! It seems like I blinked and you are a year old, eating a cupcake, just like I want to eat a cupcake!!! You are so precious doll!!

Happy One Year of Life Emberlyn!!!

 
 

Rocco Koi is TWO! | Social Circle, Ga. Photography Session

He totally melts my heart! Our sweet Rocco Koi is two years old! He isn’t just a ham, he’s so funny too! This past year has flown by with him. He’s grown beyond belief - now wearing a 3T, he towers over all the kids his age. lol When I ask him to smile he gives the hardest, cheesiest, eyes pinched shut, smile you’ve ever seen! It’s the best thing ever!!

He has started potty training and when WE are consistent he does really well. He talks ALL the time when we hide his paci. He calls his sisters RyRy and Liby - it’s the cutest thing! He’s starting to put sentences together. My fave so far is “I love mommy and gaggy!” Oh, and he said, “I love Gegus” (Jesus) the other day and I about fell to the floor - not even kidding, it was so sweet and beautiful! When he sees a baby, he says, “Baby?!” He loves them so much.

When people first meet him they usually say, “Aw, hey sweet girl!” or “your daughter is so beautiful!” It’s okay!! I’m used to it and it doesn’t bother me at all. The hair ain’t going anywhere YET!

This past week has been different for him because his sisters are now back in school. He keeps asking, “RyRy, Liby, sleep? RyRy, Liby home?” He loves them so much! And while I miss his sisters SO very much while they are at school, I’m thankful for the extra time I get to spend with just he and I.

Happy belated birthday Rocco Koi!

 
 

Norah's ONE | Social Circle, Ga. Family Session

She is pure SUNSHINE!! And such a joy! We celebrated Norah with a fun cake smash and she loved it. Her big brother even joined in! I know that my clients need me for documenting these amazing times in their life but I don’t think they realize how much I need and enjoy them too!

Seeing Norah thriving, she’s standing and so ready to walk soon, is such a blessing and a testament that we serve such a good God! Norah was born premature and lived in the NICU the first weeks of her life. Now, seeing her, you would never guess that she had such a fight for her life.

Norah, you are strong, you are beautiful and you are a child of a mighty God! I can’t wait to see where he leads you doll!!

The Edge family, Ciara, Mark, Conner and Katheryn, came to our farm this past weekend for their family session! The goats and chickens were pretty darn excited to meet everyone and I was excited to see the Edge's again! I photographed Conner's newborn session over three years ago. . .AND it sure doesn't seem like it's been that long!!

Conner is becoming quite a gentleman! He has the best manners! Oh and baby Katheryn and that sweet smile!! She completely melted my heart!

Ciara and Mark, you have the sweetest family and it was such an honor to photograph your beautiful family at our farm!

Spring Mini Sessions | The Georgia International Horse Park

This year, unlike any other, I decided to host some VERY last minute Spring Mini sessions at the International Horse Park before the cherry blossoms withered away! And when I say last minute I mean the week I put it out there was the same week I photographed these sweet families!!! I never do mini sessions so "unplanned" but they were awesome enough to meet with me the day before Easter! ;) It turned out to be a very beautiful spring day for us! 

Oh and guess what happened?!?!? I need to share a little back story here!! RyAnne, my oldest daughter who is almost eight, begged to go with me to my sessions! She LOVES being my assistant and helping me with the little clients - she can put a smile on their sweet little faces like it’s nobody’s business!! Well, on the way there she asked where we were going. I told her, “It’s a place called The International Horse Park.” She about went crazy thinking she was going to be seeing tons of horses!! I had to explain that where we were going there probably weren’t going to be any horses. She said, “Well, I’m sure I will see some! I really just want to pet them!!!” Poor baby is SO horsey deprived right now! Ever since last summer, (two weeks after I gave birth to Rocco) while at horse camp she fell off her horse and fractured her elbow. Naturally I’ve been SO hesitant to put her back on a horse!

While the Payne family and I were standing by the median chatting, RyAnne yells, “There’s a horse!!!” We all glance up and see a beautiful white horse coming at us!! Upon further inspection I notice that the horse DOESN’T have a rider and it’s coming straight at us at FULL SPEED!!! I was like, “Y’all I think we need to move!” Chad, my client, suggested that we get in front of their vehicle to shield ourselves! Thankfully we did because that beautiful horse galloped RIGHT by us! I snapped a few photographs of the horse running between my props that I had set up in the cherry tree orchard!!! Totally terrifying! I’m SO thankful that God was watching out for us that day! Had we started our sessions on time (we were running a little behind on the schedule) we would have been right in that horses path!! God is SO GOOD y’all!!! And just so you know there isn't a majestic white horse running around the horse park. . .he was captured and taken back to his rider!

Now, back to these amazing families!!!

Meet the Payne Family! They are our neighbors AND we love them!! Their sweet baby girl Bristol - oh man!! Isn't she not the CUTEST?!?!?! 

Next, I met with Dallas and her son Lathaniel! I have been photographing this sweet boy since he was just a teeny baby! He is now almost TWO and he is about to be a BIG brother to a baby SISTER!!! I'm so excited for Dallas and her family!! 

And because RyAnne just LOVES all the littles, she asked to hold Lathaniel. He jumped into her arms and started hugging and kissing her!!! It totally made her day! When I photographed Lathaniel’s newborn session almost two years ago, RyAnne was my assistant that day too! She always asks the momma’s if she can hold their baby’s after their session is over. Lathaniel must have remembered her because she held him when he was a itty baby too!!

The Goss family!! Another amazing family I have been photographing since Colton, there son, was just a few months old and their daughter, Blakey, was just a newborn when I photographed her too! I adore this family and their strength!! Through their trials and tribulations of losing their sweet baby girl Olivia at just 21 weeks gestation they have gained so much strength and become an inspiration and saving grace to MANY!! This year they were awarded the honor of being March of Dines ambassadors for the Walton, Rockdale and Newton area!!!

AND last but certainly not least, here is the Nolan Family! I remember the first time I met Tessa and TJ. It was during their fall mini session with me about three and a half years ago! She had her babies, Elsa and Wyatt, decked out in the cutest outfits!! I was in complete awe of their family of four!  

I'm so incredibly grateful for these families! Thank you for letting me document your family as they grow!!!
