365 Project | Natural Family Photography to capture baby's 1st year | Atlanta

It amazes me to think of the moments and details of both of my baby's first years that have slipped my mind. I even remember rolling my eyes at my Mom when she told me I'd forget most of it.

How could I possibly forget the beautiful and the hard and the joy and the mess of everyday that we were living? But alas, like so many other things, my Mother was right. It doesn't help that I don't have a great memory, and that is a big part of why family photography is so important to me.

I can sit with pictures and remember. And it's not the silly posed photos that move me to tears, it's the candid pictures of snuggles and thigh rolls that take me right back. That is exactly the type of photography that fills my creative bucket. Authentic, real life, true stories that rarely involves a pose.

I like a good portrait as a marker of a time in your life, but most of the pictures that make me feel something have nothing to do with me. What I mean, is that my favorite pictures usually are not the ones where people are looking at me.

The 365 Project came about when I realized that the first year of a baby's life seems to go the fastest. New parents are trying to figure out their new normal, and while they are probably taking lots of pictures of their kids, there's a good chance they are not getting in the shot.

I just photographed the final session of this family's 365 Project + a maternity session, and can't wait to work with them to create the most amazing baby book full of their favorites. What a beautiful book they will have to look at with their kids each year!

Enjoy some of my favorite photos from a pretty crazy year:
