Panoramic Lay Flat Album | Products | Atlanta Wedding Photographer

Let me introduce to you guys the MOST AWESOME wedding Album EVER!! Well, at least in my opinion, that's why I offer it all my clients. There are a million wedding album companies out there and I looked at a lot of them. But, I loved this specific album from on specific company the best for a few reasons:

1. I loved how it lays flat.
2. I love the thickness of the pages.  SUPER durable and professional.
3. I love how the pages have a pearl finish to them.
4. I love how the pages are panoramic.  I can put six images on a page or ONE big one...FUN!
4. I love the image on the front cover.
5. I love the linen cover.

And most of all...

I love the simple elegance of it...just beautiful!

Almost EVERY bride I show it to says they gotta have it!! 

So, hire me as your wedding photographer and it's EASILY yours! :)

The {W} Family | Fayetteville Family Photographer

Meet the sweetest little family!!  Since they have 5 kiddos, we decided to make it easy on the parents and have their session at their home. When I got there, I was shocked at how relaxed I was.  All the kids were doing some last minute preparations and in the same area of the house and it was so QUIET!!  No screaming, no fighting, and they were all helping each other.  I don't know how they do it, but those kids are AWESOME!!    If you were to walk into my house with my 3 little girls there would almost always be screaming and squealing, and probably fighting!!  LOL!  

Anyway, these kids are the cutest and their parents are too!  Take a look for yourselves...

Miss {A} | 5 Year Old Portraits | Fayetteville Portrait Photography

As a Photographer Mom, I always take my girls portraits on their birthday. But, I ALAWYS forget to blog about it.  I guess they're not technically clients so I forget about my whole "process"!  lol!

Her Birthday was in April...Oops!  Oh well, better late than never! ;)

We went to her FAV place here in Fayetteville, The Prime Community Park~ Secret Garden and she wore her little outfit we made for her "Little Mermaid" Bday party!  It was a great day!

Angelica + Kelsi | Graduation Party | Fayetteville Senior Photographer

Now that The 2013-2014 school year had started, guess it's the appropriate time to post grad party images of the class of 2013, right?  OK, I've been a bit of a slacker this summer (as far as blogging goes).  Rest assured these girls have seen their images and ordered their products! :)

It was really a fun party!!  It was the the Prime Community Park ~ Secret Garden.  It was a perfect backdrop to celebrate their graduations with ALL their friends.  These two girls are adorable inside and out.  Seriously, they were so sweet and gracious,  as were their Mother's! :)  It was great working with them and the BEST part??  They LOVED their pictures! :)  I HEART seeing my clients excited about their pictures! :)

I'm so excited for these two girls.  They are best friends going separate ways to college, but I know their friendship will last a lifetime! :)  Thanks ladies, for letting me be a small part of a BIG and important time in your lives! :)

Photo Tips | close up vs. far away | Atlanta Photographer

I recently had a friend/reader who asked me why you shoot at different distances...what are the pros and cons?  At first I thought it's just kind of personal preference, but the more I thought about it, there is a definitely reason behind shooting up close and personal or shooting far away.     

Fist off, I prefer to shoot up close because you can really see the details of a person.  I love to focus on the eyes...I mean, they are the windows to the soul!  Also, a subjects personality really shines through when you take their picture up close and personal.  The way they smile, the glimmer in their eye, the funny(or maybe sad) faces they make .  Sometimes I even like to focus in on eye lashes, especially for kids, they have the BEST eye lashes! :)  

As far as shooting far away...I usually pull back when there's a story to tell.  Is there a beautiful or interesting location?  Are there some kiddos playing with one another?  Is there a beautiful wedding dress to be shown?  Sometimes it's not about the subject of the picture at all, it's about the story of what they're doing or where they are at!  

I try to capture both types images in a session.  I think my clients love both type of images for different reasons! :)  I've chosen a few images from the same sessions to illustrate this for ya!
 _ _ _ _

I LOVED this session!!  The big red barn was JUST fabulous!!  The top image is close up.  I love how it shows the relationship AND the personalities of every member of the family.  The bottom pic is pulled back because I saw the kids talking with each other and how they were all different heights and then the youngest plopped down on the ground and I KNEW I had to capture that face, just shadows and a big red cute!

This session was at the coolest little town in Georgia.  Senioa to be exact...Ever watch the "Walking Dead"?  Yeah, it's filmed there.  These two shots are the same "pose", but I loved them both for different reasons.  The top one I loved, again, because it's close up and showing the relationship there...each parent interacting with their young children.  I loved the bottom image because there is just something about the architecture I loved...that cool corner building!!  Which one will they hang up in their house?  Who knows, but they each have a different story! :)

This is a beautiful graduate of 2013.  Of course I love the close up image on the left because it shows her beautiful eyes and look at that gorgeous hair!  The image on the bottom tells a story, a story about the southern town we live in.

The FAIR!!!  This is one of my all time favorite session!  I love the close up b/c, well, look at it, she's having so much fun!!  Her smile says it all.  But look at the family pic next to it...equally as fun right.  You can't see much about the family except they're laughing, but look at the fun colors, lights, and stuffed animals behind them....there's no doubt they're at the fair and LOVEing it! :)

And the wedding...You can't pass up a good close up of a bride and groom hugging.  Can't you just feel the love there?  She's just so happy to be married to the love of her life.  Next to it is the pulled back image.  WE had to get a picture of the full dress, how they are interacting and I loved showing off how it was rainy that day.  The trees are colorful and lush, you can see the reflection of them on the wet cement, and the umbrella...AWESOME!

Now go out a take some pics...close up and far away and see the different emotions and story you can capture.  Come back here and tell me what you found!! :)  Also, feel free to ask me a question any time and I'll be happy to answer and post about it! :)
