Storytelling: A Day in the Life.

I started this series with my own family in mind. I would be giving my kiddos a bath and kind of wish I had a picture of it. Or when I’m sitting on the floor with them building blocks, I’d take a second and try to remember their dimpled fingers stacking. These moments pass us by way too quickly. There is only a small window of time when our babies and toddlers are home with us and need all of our time and attention. These days are LONG (um, is it bed time yet?), but if you’re anything like me, once they are down (and if I’m being honest, once I’ve had a chance to relax with a glass of wine), I find myself looking at pictures of them and reflecting back on our day. Capturing these days will probably be some of the most meaningful photographs I’ll have the pleasure of handing over to my clients. I love a beautiful family session on the mountain, we all need those polished photographs to hang on our walls, but these everyday moments deserve their own session too.

This particular mama spends her free time (and not so free time!) creating beautiful paintings for her business, Jana Fleming Art. Enjoy a peek in to their day:

A little bit about these sessions: they are not timed, we will cover all the things that are important to you. We’ll take the time to discuss that once you’ve booked your session. Mornings are usually the best time for these, as that is when I find babies & toddlers are the happiest. They will be held on weekdays and I will only be able to schedule 2 per month. Sessions are $1250 & you will receive all of the images from your session as well as a soft-back book.

Please email me if you have any other questions!

The Hillegass Family | Buckhead Atlanta Film Family Photographer

You may remember this beautiful family from their newborn session that was featured on Lemonade & Lenses. I was so excited to see them again to capture this stage of baby Grae. This 6-9 month milestone age is probably my favorite. Happy babies who haven’t figured out how to run free make for a really fun session. Also fun? This sweet family let me do all the planning for this session. From the location scouting, to the wardrobe, and the time of day. They just went with the flow and let me do my thing. That always makes for the best session. I get a vision and can execute it exactly how I envisioned it.

Most of the images below are captured with my medium format camera. I love the grainy-softness that film brings to an image. The way film captures light & color are different from digital, and I think that this format makes for the most beautiful photograph. Ones that are meant to be art in your home.

Enjoy!

Myers Family | Brookhaven Atlanta Maternity Photographer

This is the second time I have had the pleasure of photographing this beautiful mama during her pregnancy. This time she is expecting her second baby boy. I feel so incredibly lucky to have such loyal clients who keep coming back to me, and trust me to capture their family milestones. I absolutely love maternity sessions, especially ones that involve little ones who are about to become big brothers or sisters. Capturing their final days as an only child, which is so bitter sweet. Bitter, because time moves so dang fast, and sweet, because there is nothing better in life than watching you babies together.

This sessions was 90% captured on medium format film. Just look at those beautiful colors and bokeh. The way the light reflects off the water, and the dreamy, creamy tones, those things can’t *quite* be replicated by digital. Just a few things that I absolutely love about capturing family on film.

Meet Graham | Atlanta Lifestyle Newborn Photographer

Meet baby Graham. The newest addition to one of my favorite families. I captured Julia’s newborn session just about two years ago (which was featured on 100 Layer Cakelet), and you may have caught Graham’s maternity session featured a few months ago (& also shared on The Fount Collective). Here we are with his newborn session, and I couldn’t love it more. Julia was just the proudest big sister, and Graham just fit right in with his family. Sweet, laid-back, and fun — the best qualities to have in clients!
