LaMont Family Rocks Piedmont Park in 2018

By Kelley / March 18, 2019 /

This is the second year I had the privilege and fun of photographing the LaMont family. Last year, Lauren’s parents joined us for fun with their grandkids. This year, Michael’s sister and her family joined us for a fall walk through Piedmont Park to make photographs of all the family members together. And separately. I…

Multi-Generational Family and Newborn Photography Session in Downtown Woodstock with the Justice and Nordine Families

By Kelley / February 18, 2019 /

I am having more and more grandmas call me to schedule family photography celebrations in honor of the newest members who have just expanded their family count by one, but their love exponentially. They want to document all three generations together. And this case, Donna wanted to include the in-laws and grandparents on the side…

Stone Mountain Family Photography Session – Swahns

By Kelley / February 4, 2019 /

I’m going to share something that I’ve never shared before with anyone. Teenagers used to scare me. Even when I was a teenager. I was a nerd. I didn’t relate easily to kids my age. I was serious. I knew how to interact with adults. But teenagers? I didn’t understand them. It wasn’t until I…

Family Photography Session in East Cobb at Sope Creek with Ashwini, Rohan, and Their Two Boys

By Kelley / November 27, 2018 /

I love family portrait sessions. Especially with families I’ve never met before. There’s always a new level of excitement in the air. What will this family be like?

Lindsey + Stephanie Are Officially Moms

By Kelley / October 9, 2018 /

Lindsey first reached out to me in March about a spring photography session. She and Stephanie wanted to celebrate the upcoming adoption of twins they had been fostering since infancy. The red tape with an adoption is challenging and frustrating, which led to court date delays on multiple occasions. We pushed the photography date out,…

Cowan Family Photographs In Canton

By Kelley / September 25, 2018 /

It had been awhile since the Cowans made family photographs. This is a normal opening line for conversations with me and something I hear from the majority of my people. Angela messaged me and told me they had made photographs when Nella turned one, but that was a while ago. And now Levi had turned…

Family Photography Session In Apple Valley, Minnesota – Jayne Family

By Kelley / January 22, 2018 /

I have photographed these guys for the last three years. It is fun seeing the boys get taller. They are growing up and changing. Yet, their sweetness stays the same. For my folks who value photography and I know want to make new photographs every year, I stay in touch and share when I have…

Family Photography Session At Sope Creek Paper Mill Park In East Cobb – Alsip Family

By Kelley / January 15, 2018 /

When Christie first contacted me after receiving a gift certificate for a family photography session with me, we talked for awhile about places to go locally for her family session. She knew she wanted to include her two dogs and one is a bit neurotic about going far from home. And by far, I understand…
