Locust Grove Family Photographer | Golatte Family

Locust Grove Family Photographer

This was the fist time I got to meet the Golatte Family.  They called looking for a Locust Grove Family Photographer and found me!  I was excited to book a outdoor session with them at Turnipseed in Fayetteville GA.  Their boy had the prettiest grey eyes.  The whole family was beautiful as you can see.

We frequently don’t realize the importance of family pictures until it is too late.  Too often we find ourselves seeking out pictures of memories with a person after he or she is no longer around.  Naturally, we look to our photographs to help us remember the good times.  Please do not forget to schedule your family photography session yearly.  Your brother’s friend knows a guy that just bought a shiny new camera, with a big lens… So why would you need to hire & pay for a Professional Photographer? A Professional Photographer is more than someone with a good camera… more than someone that has learned about light styling, composition, locations, flattering poses, quality prints, and exciting image presentations… a Professional is someone that has personally invested themselves to do everything they possibly can to ensure that your photographs are not only what you asked for, but exceed your imagination and all expectations..

Ellie was a very happy baby!  She looked just like her daddy and would smile every time he made a noise at her.  I did this family’s pregnancy announcement session last year.  I wasn’t allowed to post any of the pictures on Facebook though because she want to announce herself.  We didn’t even know at the time if the baby was a girl or a boy.  I was so excited to dress her up in all my cute stuff!   Her mom brought lots of cute outfits as well.  And she always had to have a bow in her hair!  Which made her even cuter!

3 Months is a wonderful age to photograph.  I always suggest waiting until baby is close to 4 months so baby can push up great like Ellie.  There isn’t many poses at 3 months so its important to me that they don’t struggle doing tummy time.  If not most of the poses will be laying on their back and they may start looking similar.  I hope to see sweet Ellie again soon!

Heritage Park McDonough GA Wedding | Gigi’s Wedding

This was the first time that I was hired locally to do a wedding.  I have shot a few wedding before this.  I have mostly done family or friends in the past.   The last 2 weddings that I photographed were absolutely gorgeous.  One wedding was at the beach and the other was at a gorgeous venue in Warner Robbins.

Gigi contacted me the previous week and ask if I had a week day slot open.  She told me that she was getting married on the court house steps.  I normally give referrals to wedding inquiries because they scare me to death.  I though that a McDonough court house wedding didn’t sound to terrifying.  I shoot often in the sounding McDonough square areas.  I agreed to photographer her wedding.  A few days later she let me know that they changed it to Heritage Park which was an awesome decision.  Heritage Park is a great photography location.  I shoot babies, family, maternity and High School seniors there all the time.  Its just about 5 minutes from my house too which is a plus.

The wedding was short and sweet.  The groom was shaking in his books.  The bride was ready to say I do.  The wedding took place under a 300 year old Oak Tree.  After the wedding we took a walk to a bridge and a trail in the woods.  We got some gorgeous shots of the married couple and some individual shots.  They both were easy to photograph.  I don’t think they had pictures of them done together in awhile so I am happy they now have some updated images of themselves.  I hope to see this awesome couple again one day for a family session!

McDonough Maternity Photographer | Gender Reveal

OMG, it’s a GIRL!!! I swear we’re still in shock over it!  The Mom to Be was absolutely gorgeous and her outfit was amazing.  She is my youngest sister Kayla.  I am so excited to be an aunt again.  When she asked me to take these gender reveal pictures I was excited.  I loved knowing before the rest of the world.  It wasn’t a complete secret.  Our other sister, mother and maybe a few other family members already knew.   She wanted to do something fun to announce what the sex of the baby is.   Thanks to Pinterest, this is what we came up with.  What a fun way to capture the surprise, and to tell family and friends the fun news!

We come from a family of all girls.  My mom has 3 daughters and 4 grandchildren (which are all girls).  My dad had all sisters as well.   I got to say that we were hoping for a boy.  Its ok though…girls are great!  I’ll take a house full of girls vs. boys any day.

This moment brings me back to when I was pregnant with my second child.  I paid for one of those 3D ultrasounds to find out what the sex is early.  At 14 weeks, we were told that it was a BOY!  My husband was so excited.  Me…I was nervous.  At my 20 week appointment, the tech said “you said you were having a boy?  That’s not correct hun you are having a girl.”  Yeah, what a life changing moment.  I thought that only happened on TV.  Luckly, I saved all my receipts.

Congratulations Kayla!  I’m sure she will be adorable as you are!  I can’t wait to meet this sweet baby girl and take her Newborn Portraits.
