Playing with the Kids! | Savannah Child Photographer

blue_flowers

Many of you already know that before I became a stay-at-home mom and small business woman, I was a teacher. First grade teacher in fact, and happily for 10 years. I loved being a teacher, knew it was a career path I was meant to follow. I’ve been out of the public schools for a little over five years, and there are days I really and truly miss it. I miss seeing the kids’ smiling faces in the morning, playing with them on the playground, watching their eyes light up when they read their first sentence. I even miss the parents who became my friends (some whom I still am in contact with today). Thankfully I am able to re-live some of these precious moments through my own children, ages five and three.

I suppose it is no surprise that when I began my photography journey and decided that I wanted to open a business, that I was naturally drawn towards child portraiture. Children have been a huge part of my life for so long, and I feel like I connect with them on an entirely different level. I just get kids. I love them happy, sad, frustrated, crying, laughing, quiet and content. I am as much of a sucker for an image of a huge chuckle as I am of a serious, thoughtful face.

I have been fortunate enough to photograph preschools for the last three years and it is a job I always look forward to. In fact, I hope to add a school or two next year. I only spend about ten minutes with each student, but you can learn so much about a person in that short amount of time. Especially little people who genuinely wear their hearts on their sleeves and aren’t afraid to show you who they really are.

Here are a few more of my favorites from this year’s preschool.

Sweet, sweet smiles.

Such soft, tender smiles. I melt.

 

Pretty much adore.

I love the smaller details when photographing kids, like their legs and tiny feet.

Adorbes. That is all.

I told you you can learn a lot about kids in 10 minutes … hee hee ...

Pretty in pink, no joke.

Moms & Dads, thank you for allowing me to have a few precious moments with your kids. I can’t wait until next year.

Julie | Savannah Maternity Photographer

I met the lovely Julie and her sweet hubby, Tim, as referrals from another client (Hi, Madeline!!). Before the session Julie and I had a wonderful conversation where we realized we had quite a bit in common, but most specifically, teaching. This is Julie’s 10th year in education and she is currently a 1st grade teacher, the grade I taught for all of my 10 years. I may be a bit biased, but 1st grade teachers are pretty special, remarkable people. The amount of learning those little kiddos go through that year is astounding yet they remain, for the most part, totally excited about school. Watching their faces light up with each new grasped concept always warmed my heart, and was definitely one of the main reasons I sought out to continue to teach 1st grade with each PCS move.

Julie looks like a teacher – and I don’t mean in that stereotypical (sometimes) stuffy way. She is kind, tender hearted, fun and exudes a genuine warmth; instantly likable. Tim is a earnestly nice guy, too, and the two of them were a dream pair to photograph.

Julie and Tim are having a little boy (once again, totally biased towards those little men!!) and she was absolutely radiant in blue … so fitting.

Any guesses as to what dad does? 🙂

Luuurve the name Julie and Tim picked out for their peanut …

Such a lovely couple! No doubt Gideon is going to be a cutie!

Ahh, love it when mamas bring a gorgeous, flowy dress from home. I always ask my moms-to-be to bring an outfit they feel comfortable and beautiful in … you can always tell in the images, like this …

Probably two of my favorite portraits from their session … so in love and so undeniably radiant!

Julie and Tim, I am thankful we met. You two are terrific and I can’t wait for Gideon’s newborn session! See you in a few short weeks!!

Another Chance| Savannah Child Photographer

There are a lot of really amazing things about being an Army spouse. Traveling the world, making wonderful, life-long friends, getting all fussed up for military functions, serving your country, discovering how brave and strong you truly are and knowing that you are a part of something way greater than yourself. For me, as an Army spouse and photographer, it’s the chance to meet up again with former clients.

The last time I saw this sweet girl, she was looking pretty adorable in some precious props and outfits her mom brought.

Seeing her again, months later, was such a treat. Another chance to photograph this sweet baby girl. And just look at her now!! Definitely sporting the same bright eyes and chubby little cheeks (and a good ‘ole Georgia tan)! Yay!!

This session was such a blast! It is incredible to watch these little people grow up before your eyes – especially when you don’t expect to see them again!

I can’t begin to tell you how much I adore Miss R and her spontaneous, entertaining personality.

Momma, it was such fun to chat with you during R.’s session. Thank you for being a friend and such a loyal client, even after moving states!! I appreciate your patience, too. I look forward to working with you many times while we’re both here and documenting all of R.’s milestones.

I Heart Faces Challenge {Shadows} | Savannah Child Photographer

It has been a long time since I have participated in the iheartfaces.com challenge. The first time I entered was with this photo, and I happened to land in the Top Ten! The theme this week is “Shadows.”

 

Recently, my sweet little man suffered through several days of high fevers (104-106 degrees!!) before finally being diagnosed with pneumonia. I snapped this shot of him during one of his breathing treatments.

Check out more “Shadow” entries at I Heart Faces!

Simply Sunshine| Savannah Baby Photographer

Oh, precious little Miss E.! Where do I start? I definitely have to start with her mama who I knew I’d like the first time we chatted. It’s so true that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree – Miss E. is so much like beautiful, kind mom.

We decided not to do a cake smash for Miss E.’s first birthday session and I’m glad we didn’t because it afforded us the opportunity to complete three different setups and E. rocked them all!

I absolutely adore these ballerina-esque dresses for girls. You all know that with two boys in my house (3 if you count the hubby) that I get pretty googly-eyed when daughters come to see me. Especially dressed like this.

That wisp of hair?

I swoon.

(I do that a lot).

Mama brought the bright & colorful sunflower with her to Miss E’s session and I really can’t think of a better analogy for her. I’m fairly certain this precious baby always has her face towards the sun.

I love capturing the quiet moments … and the ones with an extra dose of personality!

little miss sunshine

No words, really. I just love.

And this girl can rock the glamour already …

Couldn’t finish out this blog post without one more of Miss E.’s infectious smiles.

Mama, you’re awesome and I’m so glad our paths met! You are honestly one of those special people that I could chat with for hours. Best of luck to you !!
