Miss Christian Bush!

Jennifer and Brandon have been waiting for Christian for a long time.  Jennifer and I used to work together (pre this crazy business).  So when I went to see them in the hospital, I had to take my camera to snag a few shots of the sweet family.  Just so you know, Jennifer is one of those girls that if you’re a woman that has been pregnant, you hate.  She was so cute!  When I last saw her, which was only about a month ago, she still looked the exact same except for a basketball at her belly.  Then when I went to see her, she looked great!  She wasn’t a hot mess like the rest of us.  She’ll be back in her true religions  by next week!  I hate you J.Bush ;o)!

This is the only time that she made a peep.  It was the sweetest cry.  She was protesting having her diaper changed.




In case you can’t read what her shirt says, it’s possibly my new favorite 2 chix shirt (which I’m a HUGE fan of).  It says “You had me at Epidural”.


hehehehehe……this is her pope hat!


I think this is my favorite picture.


Jennifer and Brandon were so great.  They were already pros at handling her.  She was also a little different from other newborns, she didn’t really care if she was all swadled up or not.  She was cool to just hang out.  She will make a fine girlfriend for Noah!

I just wanted to post a quick picture of Noah at Hallowwn.  I’m pretty proud of this costume.

I met Jennifer through Noah’s mother’s day out director.  She asked me to come and take some pictures of her sweet family.  We were very lucky to be able to find a day between all of our crazy travel schedules a couple of weeks ago.  I had a great time with their 5 year old daughter Sydney.  

First we played with horses


Then we got all dressed up….these are my favorites








Then we did some coloring


and then became couch potatos


This one SCREAMS christmas card!


and then there was just enough time to get some fun pictures outside before Mark had to leave for a quick business trip.


Mark and Sydney planted a vegetable garden together




Pay It Forward

Hey Everyone!  I know I’ve posted a TON today and I’ll hopefully post a ton tomorrow as well.  I guess it’s a good thing and it means that I’m working my way through my lengthy to-do-list.

Last Wednesday Adam, Noah, and I met up with the super funky photographer Tara Kneiser of Dixie Pixel Photography for our Pay It Forward Session.  For those of you who haven’t heard of the PIF Project or otherwise known as “Roadside Families Project“, it’s a project for photographers by photographers.  Since we all know that the cobbler’s children have no shoes, we are trying to make sure photographers don’t fall into the same category.  So John Michael Cooper of Alt-F Photography has started a pay it forward project to get photographers out from behind the camera.  Each photographer’s family that is photographed must photograph another photographer’s family in return.  Tara and I attended the Alt-F 1 day workshop in Atlanta together back in August and JMC photographed Tara’s family.  In turn, Tara has shot the Hopes of Hope Photography as well as us.  Now it’s my turn.  If you are a photographer and would like to have pictures of your family taken, email me!  I have 30 days to pay it forward.  Remember that you MUST spread the love.  If I do your pay it forward session, you HAVE to pay it forward to another photographer within 30 days.

Here are a few shots from our session.  You can see the rest on Tara’s blog HERE.

The day after Michael and Rebecca’s e.session, I shot Michael’s cousin Jeff’s family.  The whole family was in town that weekend, so you’ll be seeing some other family members over the next few posts.  I was really excited when Natalie emailed me wanting to do a session because I hadn’t met Charlotte (aka Lottie) yet.  I got some really great shots, even though Lottie decided she didn’t want to smile for me.  I was lucky enough to catch a little smile while they were putting her back in her car seat.  As soon as she heard the shutter click, she pulled that smile right back.  At least I got one. 












There it is!  The smile I was talking about.

Welcome little miss Lyla!

Cory and Courtney welcomed baby Lyla to the world a couple of weeks ago.  She was barely 12 hours old when I was able to get to the hospital for a visit.  When I walked in, Courtney was up walking around and ready to go!  If you would like to see pictures of Lyla’s big sister Ansley, click here or here.





I haven’t forgotten about you Clemmers!

Now that I have a bulk of August open, I’m catching up on my backlog of work.  I shot the Clemmers forever ago and I’m just now getting them blogged.  I’M SORRY!  You may remember them from last year when we had our first fun session HERE.  My little Sydney has gotten SO BIG!  She’s coming up on her 2nd birthday…or just had it…HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!  To see some pictures from her first birthday, click HERE to see how big she’s gotten.  

We had a sleepy start

She’s already learning that purses are black holes






nothing beats an upside down baby!
