Hilton Head Birthday Weekend – Part 2

By Kelley / May 27, 2014 /

As soon as we got into town, we checked into our room, dropped our bags and headed for the beach. We couldn’t wait to see the ocean. And only the girl child stopped on the tree long enough to pose for a photograph. I’m told she looks like me, but I don’t see it. There…

Play Doh Breakfasts And Super Hero Dinners {Austin Texas Lifestyle Family Photography}

By Kelley / April 7, 2014 /

In spite of a last minute re-route through Austin and only a handful of hours to enjoy my people, my time felt so laid back and relaxed.  I think that speaks volumes about my people and how they handle life and the environment they create. The six year old was off to Kindergarten early.  Earlier…

Similarities And Differences

By Kelley / March 26, 2014 /

This is Martin.  He is my family.  He is part of who I am now, just as much as he was a part of who changed a much younger self of me.  He has taught me that there is no point in bearing a grudge.  It will only hurt me.  That joy can always be…

Lakeville Minnesota Family Portraits

By Kelley / January 17, 2014 /

Remember when I went back to Minnesota during the coldest winter week they have had in over twenty years?  And my mom and mom-in-law and her mom all thought I would reschedule because I’m such a wimp when it comes to temperatures under 75 degrees?  This is the family I went back to Minnesota and photograph.  It…

Atlanta Family Photographs At Agnes Scott College

By Kelley / December 22, 2013 /

Atlanta has had so much rain over the past couple of months.  It seems like it has been ages since we have seen the sun on a regular basis.  The day of this family session was no different, filled with drizzle and grey skies.  I was thrilled when Michelle said she wanted to go out…

Atlanta Family Photographer {In The Middle Of A Senior Photography Shoot}

By Kelley / November 25, 2013 /

Remember this senior session I shared last week?  Victoria’s younger sisters came along for the afternoon.  This is Olivia.  She’s three.  And for the first half, she was shy as could be with me.  Smiles were not even a possibility. But after an hour, she warmed up a bit and felt more comfortable.  She wouldn’t smile for…

Newborn Twins {Woodstock, GA Lifestyle Photographer} – Morgan Family

By Kelley / November 11, 2013 /

I bet you remember this family.  I photographed them for the first time, just days after they found out they were pregnant.  And by the time I showed them their first round of photographs, they had learned they were pregnant with twins. These sleepy, sweet little boys arrived October 9th in the middle of an operating room…
