What a year it's been! After seven wonderful years in Colorado, this spring we moved back to our home state of Georgia. We miss Colorado terribly, but we decided to make the move so Olivia could be closer to her grandparents, aunts and uncles, and cousins. And she'll be getting her 11th cousin this winter!
Cumming, Georgia Maternity, Newborn, and Family Photographer
An equally big change for me is the decision to shift my professional focus from wedding photography to maternity, newborn, and family photography - mostly on film. Although I still enjoy weddings, and I may return to them someday, my heart has shifted to everything motherhood and family.
It's not a coincidence that this shift happened after Olivia came into our lives. Motherhood has changed me. Before I really got the bug to have a child, I couldn't quite relate to the friends whose IG feeds became a gallery of their children (now I'm one of them). I thought it was funny how every parent was sure their child was the smartest, cutest, sweetest... but now I'm positive that Olivia is all of those things. My rose colored glasses aren't so shaded that I'm protected from her tantrums or hard days, and we're quickly approaching the stubborn "threenager" stage, but the struggle to have her makes me appreciate motherhood in a way I can't put into words.
"For this child I prayed..." 1 Samuel 1:27
Infancy is gone in a flash. Toddlers become teenagers, and then all too soon they move out on their own. Then we'll be the mommas telling new parents how quickly it all goes by. Time slips through our fingers, but we hold onto the memories.
I want to help you "remember when" and create heirloom portraits to share with your children and family as they grow. I can't wait to photograph all of the eagerly expecting mommas, newborn sweetness, and big family hugs that are brought my way!
