Spring. Break.

hello!  Happy spring to you!

It’s been a long long time since I’ve had a spring break, but that’s about to change!  I’m taking a little vacation and so will be slow to respond to any emails/inquiries for a little while here… Actually, I’m not sure that I’ll be able to access email at all while I’m gone, so I apologize in advance if I unintentionally ignore anyone!

I promise to catch up later this month and start making plans for the summer.  🙂

I’ve loved seeing so many faces this spring!  I know the blog here is still stuck in fall/winter, but in real time spring has been in full swing.  We started out with the first blossoms early in March, when there was sunshine but still a nice brisk chill in the air, and then we had that rainy, stormy, cloudy April (I confess that I actually enjoy a good thunderstorm), and now we’re in May, sunny again, and heating up fast!

I don’t know how it all went so fast!  But here’s just a small look at just a little of what’s  been going on around here.  Love all of these folks and more!

W family, fall in Roswell

We had such a beautiful morning in Roswell to spend time with the W family!

Mom told me she expected her daughter to be unhappy during the shoot – she was hoping for just one of her smiling – but look how happy this girl looks!
Had fun with both of these kiddos!

(And then I locked my keys in the trunk of my car.  But that’s another story.  At least I got to enjoy some sunshine.  🙂 )

Fall Mini-Sessions, Druid Hills Day 2

Wrapping up on posting mini-sessions from fall!

Really enjoyed these this past year!  All the fall color and weather…  and now I’m enjoying this spring weather, too!  (Basically, I’m really happy when it’s not summer.  🙂 )

First we have a family of four with one little spunky girl who LOVES to pose for the camera, and one beautiful little sister who was much more shy.  But we ran around, and played with mom and dad, and I was really happy with the moments we captured!

Next we have a family of six!  That would be mom, dad, big sister, little sister, and the 2 dogs.  Little sister had just woken up from a nap and wanted to be back to sleep, poor thing.  So while we got some wide awake and playing shots of big sis, we got some quiet and sweet shots of little sis.

The third family was returning from last fall – so happy to see these girls again!  Mama works hard for these smiles.  Once again, we had 2 sisters where little sis wasn’t quiet sure what was going on, but they were so sweet together!  Love how her big sister took care of her!

4th in line we have our first boy of the day!  Handsome Mr. W.  Who’s mom is a friend of mine!  She’s actually the sister-in-law of one of my old high school friends, and I was fortunate enough to get to know her better when she moved to Atlanta.  She’s hilarious and sweet and smart, and I think this boy is going to be lot like her.  So much fun with the entire W family!

And lastly, I had a little something new!  This session was bought as a gift for these pair’s dad from his girlfriend.  She dressed the kids, brought them out for a photos session, and just stood back while they worked their charm.  They were SO easy!  And so fun.  Just all giggles and smiles and playfulness.  Thanks for making this job so easy on me!  Loved meeting them.  And I heard the surprise photo gift was a great success.  🙂

Thanks again to all the clients who traveled to see me for the fall mini’s!

Fall Mini-Sessions, Druid Hills day 1, part 2

Finishing this post up of mini-sessions from the fall!  This was the 3rd day of mini’s, but the first one in town, on the east side, in the Druid  Hills neighborhood of Atlanta.

The first family pictured here came to me for the first time last year for minis, and I’m SO happy they came back!  This little girl was such a little lady, so much more grown up in one year.  And geunuinely so sweet and so fun!  As are her parents.  It makes it easy when mom and dad are relaxed and just loving on their little girl.  Love how these turned out.

And then I met a new family with a teenager and 2-year-old twins.  These twins were trained to smile!  I’ve never seen a 2 year-old sit still and smile on queue so well.  So they loosened up by playing in the leaves – I think they had fun!

Fall Mini-Sessions, Druid Hills day 1, part 1

I still have more mini-sessions from the fall to blog!
This preview from my first day on the east side was a little long, so I’m dividing it in two.  The first family on this day I met for the first time when they stepped out of the car – and what a handsome site they were!  Mama and dad looked elegant and like the doting parents they were at the same time.  Big sister was so shy!  But we got her warmed up by the end.  And of course little sister – look at this face.

Next I had 2 families in a row that were from little girl first birthdays this year!  You may recognize them from here and here.  I get so excited to see my first birthdays again – they’ve always grown so much!  And both these families are so easy going and have fun together which makes things easy for me!
The second family of the day brought their two dogs, and there was a moment when they were able, as a unit (2 parents, one toddler, and one canine) crawled forward in the sitting position to get close to their eldest dog, who clearly was not going to be moving any time soon – that was the most impressive thing I saw all day!
With our 3rd family, big brother had so much fun with our fall leaves.  It’s always so refreshing to see our surroundings through the eyes of a little one.
