One + One | Atlanta Children’s Photographer

I’m sure my regular blog readers will recognize this gorgeous set of twins from the last time I photographed them.  You also might recognize them as the Trick or Treating Ballerinas from Cold Case on CBS.  They are so much fun to photograph and they have the sweetest little personalities.  They have *the*  most amazing, loving parents and yes I’ve adopted myself to their family (shh I haven’t told them yet).  Here are a few to share from our afternoon together.

Brilliant colours!! That first shot is so lovely, clean, crisp and clear! You’ve really captured her eyes smiling!

Michelle - June 27, 2010 - 9:12 pm

They are the sweetest! I am in love with the first shot, very nice Angela. I also love the ones of their feet. I bet that anyone that knows them can tell who’s feet are who’s just by the way they stand. So much personality there.

Sam, Sammy or Samuel | Atlanta Baby Photographer

I recently photographed sweet Atlanta baby Sam in his home.  His Mom said that they call him Sam, Sammy or Samuel, I think we should just call him cute, because he was so adorable.  He’s *this* close to walking and the day I was there we thought he was going to start running around within a few days.  His Mommy & Daddy were amazing and were so in love with their sweet baby boy and each other.  I even hung around while he was having his lunch and captured a few snaps while he was eating, he even made lunch time a fun event!

Chundra Rambert - November 29, 2010 - 9:30 am

What kind of lighting did you use to produce this type of photo. Natural lighting or a setup light. When you come across a client that does not have good lighting in the home what do you use? Especially when it is cold outside like now.

Subscribe & Support Atlanta’s Ronald McDonald House

As a mentioned a while back I’ve been working with the wonderful people at Atlanta’s Ronald McDonald House.  I photographed the amazing, wonderful, gorgeous, friendly, loving (I could go on and on with adjectives for them) Spadgenske family from Alabama who have stayed at RMH over 15 times.  One of the photos from our session is now being used on a trayliner promotion in 275 McDonalds locations all over Atlanta.  That just makes me smile so big!  The Atlanta Journal Constitution (AJC) is now running a promotion with RMH and if you subscribe the AJC will make a donation to RMHC.  The image below is what the trayliner looks like!  I hope all of my Atlanta clients and blog readers will take advantage of this great subscription offer to support RMH.

Sean | Buckhead Children’s Photographer

This afternoon I traveled to Buckhead to photograph a super cute 19 month old boy named Sean.  Like most little ones his age he was super busy but he was so much fun and he gives *the* best high fives around!  I think we finished up just in time because the minute I got back home it started hailing gum ball and golf ball sized hail!  That is a new one for us, I think we only saw hail once in Los Angeles and it was itty bitty.

This first shot below was taken when Sean and I were hanging out while his Mommy & Daddy were getting ready.  I always adore shots of babies and kids just doing their thing, wearing whatever they would normally wear if they were just being a kid and not a photo shoot participant. Thank you to Sean’s Mommy, Daddy, Grandma, Grandpa, Aunt & baby cousin for being so kind to me and for being so much fun! It was a wonderful way to spend the afternoon.  Here are a few from our afternoon together:

jennifer - April 10, 2009 - 6:37 pm

what a beautiful family, and a little handsome cutie he is! Love that first shot, shows so much personality in him!

Kimberly Hill - April 11, 2009 - 5:54 am

I can’t pick a favorite. The excessive cuteness of him being just him in the first, the texture of the yummy bench and classic chambray/denim, or the pride in his parents’ faces in the last. They need all of them!

Dena Robles - April 13, 2009 - 7:50 am

He looks like so much fun. I love the first black and white image especially.

Kristie Chadwick - April 13, 2009 - 2:42 pm

I love his hair! The picture on the bench is just perfect.

Lisa - April 13, 2009 - 6:04 pm

Absolutely adorable!

oneshotbeyond - April 14, 2009 - 11:07 am

June - April 17, 2009 - 7:54 pm

What a lovely family! Beautiful captures!

Lisa Kelly - April 18, 2009 - 2:46 pm

He is adorable, and I totally agree, it is definitely cool to capture them before they become all “picture=fied”, hehe. Great images as always.

TonyaMarie - April 19, 2009 - 2:31 pm

What a handsome little guy! Love the image on the bench. And the family shot is fantastic.

CarmenM - April 20, 2009 - 9:10 am

That boy is the cutest! How did you not take that bench with you?
Beautiful photos.

Jen Rinaldi Photography - April 22, 2009 - 9:56 am

Oh he is a super cutie! Love that one of him on the bench. He looks so cute propped up there. :)

Choo Choo Ben is Two! | Atlanta Children’s Photographer

On Saturday I traveled to Smyrna to photograph a very special birthday party for my new little friend Ben.  He LOVES trains, so his party of course had a train theme.  But wait….not only did he have a train theme, he had a real little train that gave all of the children rides around the neighborhood!  Ok I want to be two because that was the coolest thing ever.  Although Ben wasn’t so sure about that train, but he enjoyed watching it come and go and I think he decided to ride it too.  There were so many beautiful children at Ben’s party and I think they all had such a blast.  Ben’s Mommy is a wonderful party planner, I even told her she should think about doing that as a service for others, she has a really good eye for detail.

Here are a few to share from the party…
