Atlanta Tonight | Atlanta Commercial Photographer

Over the past two days I’ve been in the heart of Atlanta working on a commercial shoot.  Tonight I took the opportunity to go on the roof of the building and photograph the Atlanta skyline.  What a beautiful city I live in.

Wow, never seen Atlanta look this gorgeous. And I call it home! Which of your work would you consider your best baby photos on wall art? They’re amazing.

Cindy - October 29, 2010 - 6:33 pm

Beautiful. I always appreciate night photography. You can see things with your camera that cannot be seen with your naked eye. Cool!

Baby Elizabeth | Marietta Newborn Photographer

Earlier this week I traveled to Marietta to photograph a brand new baby girl.  Her beautiful Mommy came in last month for her maternity session and now I had the chance to meet her sweet baby.

Miss Elizabeth did not want to go to sleep, she liked staying up and hanging out with us.  I’m telling you, these newborns love partying with me.  She was so alert and was so tiny and cute.  Finally she got tired of us fussing with her and she took a little nap.  I love photographing newborns, its such an amazing time for their families and to see how much they change in the first year is mind boggling.

Thank you to the M family for welcoming me to your home and being so kind, it was so much fun and I can’t wait until our next portrait session!

Her Mommy had this beautiful scarf that she got when she went to Paris, I love the color and it made a perfect wrap for baby E.

Happy Halloween!

I hope all of you have a safe and wonderful Halloween tonight!  Don’t eat too much candy and be sure and put the chocolate at the bottom of the bowl so if you are left with candy it will be the yummy stuff. ;-)   (just kidding!)

Here are my two little trick-or-treaters!  Email me a photo of your little ones, I would love to see them!

Alice In Wonderland and a Skeleton who said he didnt like wearing his mask because (and I quote) “It hides my cool hair Mom, people can’t see it,”  oh boy, he’s only seven, I’m going to be in trouble when he’s a teenager.

I met him seven years ago

The anticipation of meeting someone new is so stressful. Will they like me, will I say or do the wrong things? Am I good enough? Seven years ago this wonderful little person came in to my life, he cried his way in to the world and continued to cry for months and months (colic reared its ugly head at us and would not let go for six months). He was a little orange at first, of course I thought he had a tan like my husband, the nurses had a few giggles over that one. He spent two weeks in the NICU, I think I cried every single day of those two weeks because I was afraid that he would never come home with us. But he did. He is my sunshine, he is sometimes a little grumpster, he is my straight A student, he is my little helper, he is the smile that greets me at 3:00pm every day when he comes home from school, he stole my heart.

It was so hard when he was born to ever think past those first few rough days when he was sick to even think that things would be ok and that he would be the strong, smart, funny little boy that he is today. I didn’t know that he would end up with these beautiful curls that make people stop us in the grocery store. I didn’t know that he would tell me that he thinks I’m pretty every day, I didn’t know that he would want to hold my hand when we walk in to a store.

He loves pizza, Sponge Bob, Star Wars, dessert, Disneyland, sand, dirt, trains, costumes, surf boards, asking questions, talking about his limo business he’s going to have when he grows up and hats.

Today we celebrate his seventh birthday, my sweet baby boy Spencer. What a wonderful seven years it has been with him in my life. Happy Birthday to my little prince!  Oh and it’s also Talk Like A Pirate Day too!

They grow up way too fast, don’t they? What a handsome little man you have; I can see why he’s stolen your heart. By the way, I broke my little toe this week (somehow managed to do an imitation of a kickboxer in my house and hit it on the corner of the wall). It must be from reading your blog. Now, if only my photographs would improve from reading your blog, lol. Happy Birthday Spencer!!! I hope you celebrated in style!!!

Xtina Solis - September 18, 2008 - 11:07 pm

Happy birthday little Spencer! I remember how he used to draw pictures of everyone at Bestever for us to hang at our cubes, awwe how time flies. TGIF Angie!

Yanuar - October 25, 2008 - 2:30 am

Hi Angela..
I really like your works! I wish I lived near you, so I could have my children portraits done by you.
I love the color of your photos. Is it came fresh from your camera, or have you made some post production in photoshop? Could you share with me how to do it?
Thaks before.

Saved by a H.E.R.O.

When I say it’s never a dull moment in my life, I mean it, I swear I don’t think I could make up the crazy stuff that happens to me if I tried.

On my way home from a client session this afternoon I’m cruising along on the Interstate (Freeway) and it’s rush hour with a gazillion cars all around.  Just a few miles before the traffic was moving along very nicely and it suddenly slowed down as I was getting closer to the downtown area, today is truly one day where I am thankful that it had slowed down, I don’t know what would have happened if I had been going a normal interstate speed of 60+mph.  Traffic had slowed to about 20 mph and I hear a really loud boom, pop and then it sounded like someone was dragging my car on it’s side through a pile of rocks.  The alert in my car went off, WARNING FLAT TIRE, but it said not only one it said FOUR! ICCK!  Now, I don’t think it could have picked a worse place for this to happen, I was right smack dab in the middle lane and as luck would have it in the section I was in there was not really a shoulder area on either side of the fast or slow lanes.

I pulled over as best I could to the wall, still sticking out in slow lane traffic.  About ten minutes later traffic started picking up.  My car was right at a point of a curve, I couldnt really go any further because it would lead to an even less of a shoulder than there already was.  Also I couldn’t get out to see if all four tires really were flat because there were cars zooming by very quickly and big semi trucks (which already freak me out).

I got on the phone and called my roadside service who said that it was going to be at least 90 minutes.  So I’m waiting, and keeping my eyes closed because of how close the cars were coming to me then quickly pulling to the side.  Finally a *wonderful* police officer showed up and flared the interstate and called the HERO team to come and help me.  They blocked off traffic and had me drive my car down the interstate until we reached the section that had a large shoulder.  Talk about scary driving, the car was swerving all over the place even with me barely pushing on the gas.  My front driver’s side tire had completely ripped away from the hub on the inside part and my back driver’s side tired was very low.

The HERO team quickly changed my tire (at no charge, how awesome is that) and put air in to my back tire.  On my way home every, single tire shop was closed, so I luckily made it all that way on a donut (over 40 miles).

Check back tomorrow as I will be sharing a few sneak peeks of my awesome clients from today, they deserve their own blog post, instead of being lumped in with my tire talk.

Thank you to the very nice police officer and the Hero team for saving the day!

oh man!! what a nightmare…..I would have been in a panic!! and look at you, remembering to take pics too…lol

waynette - September 9, 2008 - 8:37 pm

That was nice. I think we have something like that here but it is not called the same thing. Yesterday I had a bad day. Long day at work. Todd yelled at me about stuff going on with our house, insurance, roofers not completing the job. Then I call my daughter to remind her to register to vote and she tells me she had just had a car wreck. I find out she is shaken but not hurt. Car is messed up. Other people are OK too. I call my husband during the crappy traffic to give him the updates of the roofers and the car wreck and some redneck has lost a log off his truck on the interstate and I am going 70 mph with rush hour traffic. I can not swerve or I wreck in a ditch or in another car – so I hit it and I hear it hitting my tires and under my car. I pull over to check the damage. My HERO pulls up right next to me. A stranger wanted to check on me. He saw me checking my car and wanted to make sure everything was OK. He said he would not want his wife stuck on the interstate in rush hour traffic. We both looked and thought everything was OK. He was in a big truck – helped me get merge back in to traffic and I was on my merry way.

So I am curious – what in the world did you do to mess up two tires? Driving around some construction area? So sorry? I am glad it was not a blow out when you were driving.

Xtina Solis - September 9, 2008 - 9:54 pm

omg!

leave it to the Atlangela to be cool under pressure! Oh man 4 flats? Word up to the HERO team! I’m glad everything turned out ok!

Terrilyn - September 10, 2008 - 3:02 am

Wow! What a cool thing though, the H.E.R.O. dude. I find it totally awesome that you still manage to whip out the camera and take AWESOME pics under pressure! lol

Julia - September 10, 2008 - 5:13 am

I still can’t believe this happened!! SO glad you’re okay!

Kimberly Hill - September 10, 2008 - 2:35 pm

So scary, Angela! Glad you’re okay and your own HERO came by.

PamN - September 10, 2008 - 4:19 pm

Oh, wow, and it had to be in the worse traffic spot in the world! Glad all is ok!
