Simply Smiling Brooks. Atlanta Newborn Photographer { Marietta , Canton Georgia }

March 11, 2011

Here is an amazing little guy that journeyed to the studio from Marietta. First of all I LOVE his name. Just how cute  is that  &  it is so fitting  for him .  Brooks  was perfectly ready for his session with his sweet  face and gleaming Mom and Grandma, all the way from the lush green of the Northwest. It was a special day for him for sure.

Brooks smiled  A LOT   !  His perfect little curl of his lips ….


His ever so soft  hair on his temple

his peaceful sleep.

Thank you for a great day little man.

Poems, Books & Words

February 23, 2011

I do really like poems quite a lot.  As a child I would randomly write them when I felt I needed to express myself some how. I never really thought much of it at the time and don’t really know if I was any good at it but it made me feel better.   Somehow , that seems like such a long time ago  but I still love to find and read a great work.

I have certain sayings or quotes of art in my home . If I could I would have a wall plastered with all the best quotes of the world and words of art   and reminders for my family to live by.

Here are some of my favorites.

Also, a very good book  Love  You Forever that always makes me nostalgic for when my boys were so little and I would read this to  them  . I could never read it without some tears.  It was about a mother who holds her baby as a newborn and says the following every night to him until he is grown and then the role reverses when the son holds and rocks the mother in her old age.  Ohhh, it is so sweet but warning you it will definitely make you cry.

“I’ll love you forever, I’ll like you for always, as long as I’m living my baby you’ll be.”

I can’t think of anything better than being a new mom  and to the new mom’s out there  enjoy  the new life  you have been blessed with .

L.o.v.e times 2! Twins ……………………..{Twin Newborn Baby Photographer Atlanta Canton Georgia}

Sweet little babies is what I   l.o.v.e.   These two were just that!   Lil’ Miss. E has a very pretty tinge of red hair and Mister M  has  the darker hair . They make such a great pair wanting to always be beside one another. They were still very tiny being 5 weeks early but they seemed just as healthy as can be. I am always excited to meet the newest of the world and here they are at  just past 2 1/2 weeks.

The Chester Family ……………………..{Cherokee County Canton Georgia Family Photography}

The Chester family wanted a fall session before all the leaves fell to the ground. The weather is still being beautiful these days and a cold snap has changed the leaves into their firecracker reds, yellows, & oranges but I have a feeling its all coming to an end soon.  The Chester family wanted a fall session before all the leaves fell to the ground. Christy has a great family & we decided to start off  taking some photos of their two very handsome teenage boys  first.   Then we went for  a walk for some more photos in a pasture  with more family  which you may think they look familiar…. Its  Christy’s brother and Jodie who I photographed  a few days before . Enjoy !



Jodie & Casey { Atlanta Canton Georgia Family Photography}

November 5, 2010

This was a really fun session with Jodie & Casey.  I was so happy she contacted me to do a session for them and some of  her family . They are really easy to get along  and a very sweet couple married for three years now.  I can tell that they are very happily in love and that they care tremendously for one another .

Thank you so much for having me spend the evening  capturing some care free moments of you & Casey!  I can’t wait to show you the rest and the ones of you with your sisters.

{p.s. Jodie is a teacher so I hope she doesn’t grade me on my writing skills:) }

Update this couple found out shortly after that they would be expecting a baby July 2012!

Brittany & John ……………………….{ Canton Georgia Family Photography }

November 3, 2010

Brittany and John are a playful brother and sister pair who I was very excited to photograph last weekend.   Brittany is a beautiful young lady who I instantly adored as soon as I met her.   I am so happy to have spent some time with  her . I know her brother well but haven’t had many opprotunities to see her. She is super fun I tell you !  She reminded me of a teenage  country music singer  so stylish, smiley,  and  dressed in  her cowgirl boots.  I couldn’t get over her eyes.  Her eyes are simply amazing!

I ‘ ve  had the pleasure of knowing John for a while as he is one of my son’s best friends. He is  a funny guy that is always bringing  humor into whatever he does.   I love this about him  but his other side is equally  fun. He sat quietly as he played his guitar. It was a moment I was glad to be apart of . He seems to be so modest about it but  I  must say he is very talented  and I hope he stays with it and I get to hear  a lot more of his playing in the future. Guitar music is a favorite of mine. Keep it up  and always follow your hearts you two! xoxo
