Family Means Everything | Alpharetta Family Photographer

How long has it been since you had a family portrait made? A year? Two years or more? Never? My family was in the "Never" category for a long time until, and then, we had a beautiful professional portrait taken of the whole family--all seven of us--my last year at home. That picture is one of the reasons I became a photographer. It is literally the only one I have of my entire family in my youth, and it is a precious piece of our family legacy. We have only ever been all together again only twice since then, and you can bet I took our family portraits!

When kids grow older, there are windows of time when family is all together--graduations, holidays, weddings, and holiday breaks. These are the times when I am called to create images of a whole family to preserve both the memory and the legacy of these amazing people. Oh, and dare I mention that it's fun too? 

This family--personal friends as well as clients--had a blast at their portrait session. There was ample goofing around behind the camera, but we came away with beautiful family portraits that will last for generations.

Contact me for more information about family portraits this spring . . . it's getting beautiful out there!

Your Online and Offline Headshot | Atlanta Headshot Photographer

When I create professional headshots, I'm always considering the personal branding, message, and feeling that those headshots have to convey to a client's customers. I don't do "assembly line photography." Instead, my portraits are custom-made. I show your personality, reliability, and professionalism in your portrait, and that can go a long way in attracting customers.

This was definitely the case for Tamay Shannon who owns Where 2 Start Marketing, a social media firm for small businesses. (By the way, Tamay has guest posted for me about creating a social media plan. You can read it here.) Because Tamay is online all the time, we wanted a variety of poses and looks she could use throughout the year. During our extended session, we had a blast choosing from accessories and outfits. Plus, it was all on location at a friend's home.

What does your headshot say about you? Both online and offline? If you are in need of some new headshots, I'd love to be your photographer. Contact me for more information.

Family Expecting | Maternity Portrait Photographer

One of my favorite ways to celebrate maternity is to photograph the whole family. This little mama and her family is a good friend and I loved incorporating the ideas they had into our session. Enjoy!
