For the Love of Monkeys | Richmond Hill, GA Photographer

…sock monkeys, that is …

This blog post will have more than the usual number of pictures just because I love this family and have truly enjoyed photographing them over the past year. Yup, Mr. C. is another one of my sweet newborns who recently celebrated his first birthday. Hard to believe, but it’s true. Mr. C has come to see me 4 times over the past 12 months … and for you other photogs out there, you know how much these types of clients become not only friends, but almost family in a way.

Such a gorgeous fam … mom always does a great job of coordinating.

Chairs are always a hit, especially the fancy leather ones. This kid has great taste.

Hello handsome.

Not showing so much love for the sock monkey here, but at least there are zero tears. No tears are good.

Ah! Love me some baby grins! And baby teeth!

Clearly someone is waaaay more exciting than me, but I am not complaining. Remember the no crying rule? 

Balloons are some kind of awesomeness. Totally mom’s idea, and I loved it. So festive!

Serious cake eaters crack me up! I always want to say, “It’s a party!!! Woohoo!!!”

Mr. C, if you are trying to share with me, yes … yes, I would love a taste!

Mom & Dad, thank you so much for trusting me with your sweet little man and your family. It has truly been a blessing to have known you!

I pray our paths will meet again!

Sugar Sweet Two-Year Old | Richmond Hill, GA Family & Child Photographer

This sweet girl and her parents came to see me to celebrate Miss A.’s 2nd birthday. Two-year olds, as most of you know, always walk to the beat of their own drummer. Thankfully Miss A.’s beat was right in step with mine and we managed to capture a bunch of sweet memories for this awesome family.

Exhibit One:

Notice Miss A.’s baby toes … seriously, I swoon.

Kiddos always love this pose, but especially the 2-year variety … Really, is there a better place to be?

Hey, if you don’t have the real thing, wooden cupcakes are a great substitute! Plus you can mix-and-match ’em!

Gosh, I just love this big ‘ole natural smile! Isn’t she seriously the cutest?

Remember those adorable toes I mentioned? Yup. I just had to capture them up close.


Mom & Dad, you two were such a great team and I loved working with the three of you. Thanks so much for finding your way to me, even if that path was a bit curvy! Best of luck!!!

Just a Curly Girl | Waynesville, MO Child Photographer

Another one of my newbies is 6 months old. Sigh. Seriously, they just keep getting bigger and bigger. STOP IT!

(S. thinks this is very funny).

Babies always love my “big kid” chair. It is pretty cool.

Babies and baby toes. LOVE! Is there seriously anything more precious? I think not!

I am pretty sure this is my favorite image from her session. Do you see those gorgeous eyes? And that HAIR!!!

Happy 6 months, big girl! You just get cuter & cuter every time I see you!

To S’s Mama – you know how much I adore the 3 of you … always such a pleasure! I will miss you all so much and it pains me to think of not watching baby girl grow up.

Birthday Kiddos | Waynesville, MO Child Photographer

I met this family 6 months ago, purely by chance, but will be forever grateful for the events that led them to me. It is hard to believe that this gorgeous little man is 6 months old already, and big sister is now 5! This family is always so amazing to work with, and their beautiful children just love the camera (or maybe I should say the camera loves them?)

Ummm, such a lovely, lovely girl. No joke.

See what I mean by handsome? Swoon! (Mom always brings the cutest clothes, too).

Future model? I think so … such a natural!

If you’re happy and you know it flap your arms!

We were laughing so hard … I love this age because their emotions are just SO BIG!

I have always been a sucker for dimples. His are no exception.

And yes, Mama ordered this big. 🙂

To Mom, thanks again for bringing your sweet, precious babies to see me. You know how much I love to work with you. Hope we are able to squeeze in one more visit before I leave.
