family is so important

Family Photography Session At Lake Acworth In Acworth, GA

By Kelley / September 20, 2013 /

This family was awesome from the start.  They won a session in a raffle from the Military Festival I sponsored a few months ago.  As soon as I walked into their home for the pre-consultation to talk about clothing choices, location and all the what-to-expect-what-we-will-do-question-answers, I saw photographs covering their walls.  Of their family.  I…

Woodstock, GA Family Photographer – Rand Family And Their Flying Kids!

By Kelley / August 19, 2013 /

This is the third time I have photographed this family since last Thanksgiving.  I love them more and more each time.  How is that even possible?  I love that the hour flies by while we have a great time together.  We’re silly.  We poke fun.  I get called Keisha.  It’s all good.   Last night, when…

Month Of The Military Child (MOMC) At The National Guard {Kennesaw, GA Family Photographer}

By Kelley / May 9, 2013 /

This was a fun, fun day.  I was so thrilled to be asked to be a sponsor of this awesome event celebrating military kids.  Military kids are awesome (so are their parents). When they’re not mine to discipline, I have a hard time acting like the responsible adult.  This little one’s favorite word was NO and…

Monsters, Heroes And Navigators! Oh My! {Peachtree City GA Family Photographer}

By Kelley / April 19, 2013 /

I drove down to Peachtree City for this family shoot.    You may remember mention of Mindy on this post.  She was my other contest winner with this response to my question about where does your family love to travel: Honestly I don’t know what our ideal way to enjoy downtime as a family. The last sixteen…

Dream Chasers, Adventures And Twins! Oh My! {Woodstock, GA Family Photographer}

By Kelley / April 15, 2013 /

On this chilly spring morning, we met at a local park and I had hand warmers waiting to be opened and stuffed into undergarments.  For me and anyone else who wanted them.  Because I freeze when it’s under 75 degrees.  But let’s move along, shall we?  Because this isn’t about me.  It’s about this wonderful…

Chicago, IL Family Photography Session – Ernst Family

By Kelley / February 26, 2013 /

As I’m focusing on family and on the hunt for an awesomely fabulous family to photograph for free, I realized I somehow neglected to share more from this session in Chicago last fall.  And oh. my. goodness.  Was this little girl adored by her parents.  It was so awesome to see!  She was twirled and…

And Then There Were Four – The Rand Family

By Kelley / February 6, 2013 /

After photographing this family at Agnes Scott, I promised to come back after Wyatt was born for a few newborn photographs.  What was supposed to be just a little mini-session turned into a full newborn session.  I loved every minute of it. I was having fun photographing all the little things I miss about having…

Atlanta Family Photography Session At Agnes Scott University – Rand Family

By Kelley / February 5, 2013 /

On this chilly November morning, just after Thanksgiving, I met this awesome family on the Agnes Scott College campus for family portraits.  This was carefully planned to not interfere with any college or professional football games.      Remember I said chilly?  They were pros at NOT looking cold.  Coats were donned as we walked around…

Newborn Session – Chicago Lifestyle Photography

By Kelley / November 1, 2012 /

When I was in Chicago almost two weeks ago, I had the pleasure of doing a newborn lifestyle shoot in a Chicago suburb.  It’s interesting what they call suburbs these days, as it was an hour drive and there were highway signs indicating Iowa wasn’t far.  😉 The drive was well worth it and I…
