atlanta family photographer; happy birthday zeina!
I love this family! They are so kind, and such a joy to be around. I have gotten to know them over the past few years as they prepared and welcomed two incredible daughters into their lives. I was their birth doula and birth photographer both times, and I'm so excited to get to also watch my sweet doula babies turn into big kids!
We met at a park recently to celebrate little Zeina's first birthday. I can't believe it has already been a year since her powerful entrance into the world. We explored the park, and had fun just being.
This is the type of photography that speaks to me. It is lifestyle photography--somewhere between portraiture and photo-journalism, and it feels authentic to me. I know what it is like to look at posed pictures of my babies vs. authentic amazing moment pictures of them, and the authentic pictures are meaningful to me. They remind me of details I had forgotten, and tiny voices that are gone. Authentic photographs take us back to a time and age that we thought we would never forget!
I do not put a time limit on family photo sessions--usually I let the kids decide when they are done with me. Having an activity planned is a great way to make the session fun. This could be anything from a picnic, to drawing with sidewalk chalk to playing soccer. Whatever your family is into. When everyone is having fun we will get amazing, authentic photos!
