Dillon | Modeling Headshots

Lately, I've been asked to create model portfolios for some of my clients -- it's the first step in getting serious about the craft and having headshots to apply for agencies. It's also a great way to get used to being in front of the camera with a no-pressure photographer (me)! I love how we got some dramatic lighting for the environmental portraits and then took a little more traditional approach with the black and white one. Best of luck Dillon! You look amazing.

First Day, Last Day | Fun Family Tradition

This is one of my favorite family traditions: first day of school, last day of school portraits. It's so fun to see how my son has changed over the year. He loves seeing it too. You can tell we throw in a bit of silliness as well. 

Hope you moms and dads are ready for summer! This is my last day of "freedom" for 2 1/2 months!

High School Senior Photographer | Alpharetta, Milton, Cumming, Johns Creek, Roswell

Rising seniors (and parents)! It's time to start thinking about that last year of high school, and . . . senior portraits! After you've scheduled your yearbook picture with the school's contract photographer, come do fun portraits on location with Butler Family Photography! 

We don't do cookie-cutter sessions with pre-printed backgrounds. All of our sessions are on location, and retouching is included on every ordered portrait. During June and July only, On Location Mini Sessions for Seniors start at $99.

Mother's Day | My Family Portrait

I love selfies and snapshots. And believe me, I have more than most people, but those aren't the kind of pictures I want to be remembered by. That's why, despite weighing 15 pounds heavier than I'd like and the logistics of getting my kiddo to cooperate, I make portraits a priority. Thanks to Jacob Butler for shooting the images I used to create this finished portrait!

Tiffany | High School Senior Portraits and Video

One of my most poignant memories from my former life as a junior high school teacher was during a faculty inservice. The keynote speaker had finished and members of the local high school band came in to play a piece for us. During the piece, I was incredibly moved by the fact that I had been a part of these young people's lives, that their soon-to-be-adulthood would take a part of my influence. I can only imagine that this incredible sense of honor and pride is similar to what parents feel about their graduating seniors. 

Here's one of my senior portrait sessions from this year, beautiful Tiffany. Congratulations!

Black and White Wall Portraits | Alpharetta GA Childrens Photographer

For this shoot,  I was asked to create some black and white portraits to complement a set of older portraits the family had hanging in their home. Each image is 20 inches wide and are made for a larger matted frame. I can't tell you what a thrill it is to create something I know will be treasured for years to come. We did the shoot in the client's home and I had a great time coaxing smiles out of the little ones and their big sister.

When is the last time you had a portrait made of your kids?

Upcoming Headshot Event | May 6, 2016

I have a wonderful headshot event coming up in a month in the Roswell GA studio. It's a perfect time to get that updated headshot done before summer. Hair and makeup touchups will be done by Deborah Fawaz of BeautiControl and Tanya Scheder will be doing accessory and jewelry styling with gorgeous pieces from Silpada Designs. 

Like my last headshot event, I expect this one to sell out, so book your spot early. I look forward to seeing you!

The Williams Family | Our Milton Neighbor Cover Family

Sometimes my job is to take portraits of the cutest kiddos. This little sweetheart and her parents were no exception. It's been almost a year since Our Milton Neighbor launched, and I look forward to photographing 11 more wonderful families in 2016! 

If you have someone you think would be good for an issue of the magazine (including yourself!), contact me.

The Osthoffs | WindScene Cover Family

I have a story about this cover image. First of all, they are a lovely, amazing family who were just great to photograph. But let's talk about those sweet doggies. I love dogs, and there's something about the way I photograph families and that makes them want to be in the picture. But sometimes they don't want to look or pose. They are not easily directed!

Because I take several frames of the same pose, if I can, I'll use Photoshop to retouch the image so that I've got everyone looking at me, even the pets. Both the mom and I noticed that one of the boxers was too far away from the group, so I retouched that part too!

I'm always looking for new Windward area families to feature in the magazine, so if you have someone you think would be good for an issue of the magazine (including yourself!), contact me.

Fun in the Studio | Teen Modeling Shoot

Sometimes I have the chance to have some "play time" on my own with a model in the Roswell studio. Here's a few from a shoot with a client's daughter who agreed to model for me. I love how we captured so much of her personality in just these three frames.

Digital Dust

I'm migrating a lot of content to my studio site, so pardon my "digital dust" while I get everything working over there and over here on the blog!
