Mini Sessions for a Cause - Cumming, GA Family Photographer

Bring Sydney Home Mini Sessions

I'm excited to announce my first Mini-Sessions for a Cause! The Tutterrows are a Cumming, GA family who recently adopted a baby girl in Japan (the biological sister to their other daughter), and they're dealing with changes in how the U.S. State Department is interpreting the Japanese adoption laws. They have done everything "by the books," but due to these new interpretations, they haven't been able to secure an orphan visa for their daughter. 

Alex and his wife, Samantha, are taking turns with other family members flying to Japan and caring for their sweet Sydney while they're working hard to figure out how to finalize the adoption and bring her home to GA. You can find a much better explanation of their situation here. As you can imagine, costs are mounting, and I know we can bless them if we work together!

Mini Session Details

I rarely offer Mini-Sessions, but helping the Tutterrow family is the perfect reason to do it! Photos are the perfect Mother's Day gift, or if you're not into dropping hints...they're the perfect way to treat yourself! And the best part is you'll be blessing a deserving family at the same time! Here are the details:

  • Mini-Sessions will be held on May 19 in the space above The Phase Shop in Vickery Village in Cumming, GA. As the studio space/time is kindly being donated by The Phase Shop, no rescheduling is permitted. 
  • Sessions will be 15 minutes long.
  • You'll receive 5 beautifully edited images with printing rights.

This session was extra special for me since Jenny has been my closest friend for years. She's a photographer too, so it's a huge honor when another photographer chooses you to take their photos! Jenny adores her house, and she and her husband are constantly updating it. They've even given it a name - Greendale Cottage. Since their home is such a huge part of their story, and it's filled with lots of gorgeous natural light and white walls, it just made sense to do their session where they spend so much of their time. I think their comfort level shines through in their photos!

Lifestyle Newborn Photography

I can't get enough of lifestyle newborn sessions where the whole family is involved. Yes, the whole purpose of a newborn session is to capture the fleeting time when your child is truly a newborn, but it can also be about the beginnings of brand new family dynamics.

Lifestyle newborn sessions can highlight the love of parents navigating their own new family and the joy of children getting to know their newborn sibling. Safety is always important, so it's smart to have mom or dad close when young siblings are holding the baby. You'll even notice Jenny's hand holding baby Bear steady in one of the photos. Yes, I could have her hand edited out by a professional retoucher, but both Jenny and I agreed that we loved her small presence in the photo. Looking back years from now, she'll remember this sweet moment watching over her children.

And oh my, this first photo. It's just about my favorite way to photograph a mother and her baby. When I had my own daughter, I set up this very pose, and had David take a photo of me and Olivia. If I take your newborn photos, it's almost guarenteed that this pose will be included!

Welcome | Cumming, GA Maternity, Newborn, Family Photographer | Georgia Motherhood Photographer

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!

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.

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!
