I love when families come up with creative ways to learn the gender of their new baby. The W family came to see me for just that. It was a gorgeous evening here in Metro Atlanta and they were so excited to find out- boy or girl? They each wore bandannas indicating their guesses and I took a peek at the ultrasound that was in a sealed envelope before we let the paint fly. There’s just something I love about capturing the real, raw emotion of the moment! It’s a girl!
Sometimes sessions don’t go as planned. Weather doesn’t always cooperate. Preferred locations don’t work out and we have to go with plan B.

Some of these images are absolutely stunning!!! I just had to give it a try. I went to this gorgeous location this morning and shot some sample images, then put out a casting call. Tonight I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Liam and his gorgeous mama and family! He was the sweetest, smiliest little guy. The weather threatened to rain us out, but the clouds parted ways long enough for us to give it a shot. I love that it rained first- the misty fog and summer steam was so neat! Without further ado, Liam.
Gabriel is growing up way too fast! He’s such a handsome little guy, with more personality than any 8 month old I’ve ever seen.

Even as this post is written, Mr. Gabriel has already grown, learned new skills, and explored more of his world. Way to go little guy! Now, if you could just slow down…
