Leaving on a jet plane…

Posted on February 13, 2009

Yep, that’s right… I am outta here.  Well on Sunday I am.  I am so excited to be going to the largest professional photographic convention and trade show in the country, WPPI!  That stands for Wedding and Portrait Photographers International.  It is held in Las Vegas which I am so excited about.  This will not only be my first trip to WPPI but also my first trip to Vegas.  There will be 130 different programs, speakers, parties and over 300 vendors.  Needless to say I think I will not only busy but I might have a brain overload with so much information.  :)  I truly believe that as a photographer you must continually grow and develop yourself and going to workshops and conventions such as this helps us do just that.  Not to mention I get to see tons of new products that I can share with all of you, my clients!

So if you are waiting on orders please know that I will get those to you in about a week when I return.  I will be answering emails while I am gone but only a few times a day.  I won’t have my computer with me, only my iphone.  So I will see ya on the flip side!  Vegas here I come!

Kyle - Class of 2009 | Milton High School Senior Photographer

Posted on February 12, 2009

Last weekend was just beautiful.  I was thrilled to get to photograph my first Senior since the Fall on such a gorgeous day.  Kyle was so fun, different and great to hang out with.  He is a very interesting person with some great stories to tell, even at the young age of 17 (or are you 18 :) ).  One of which is that he is a Hockey Player for Milton.  My family are big Hockey fans… actually it is the only sport we watch.  (Hubby is Canadian)  My 7 year old LOVES Hockey so when I told him I photographed a Hockey Player his eyes got as big as saucers and he said “REALLY?”  Too funny.  Kyle has been playing for years and it truly is part of who he is.  You can tell by the way he talks about it.  Kyle and his mom also had some request, which I always enjoy, so I stepped out of the box that I am normally in to do some edgy… more personal shots.  In the end, I am thrilled with the results.  Different for me, but SO Kyle.  Check out a few faves below.

We started out at Milton High School and there was a long line of school buses.
How could I NOT use them?

I was so excited when I was asked to be a guest speaker on the MCP Actions blog by the very talented Jodi Friedman.  She is a master Photoshop wizard.  :)  She asked me if I would do a series of blog posts about photographing Newborns… and you all know how much I love those tiny people.  So I of course agreed.  The series started today so go and check it out…

A new look for AGR Photography

Posted on February 1, 2009

I am proud to share with you my new website.  I have been working on it off and on for a few months now and finally it is live!  It has been a fun to work on and go through all my recent images.  Some of you may reconige my adorable models on there.  I love this site because the site itself and the images adjust to your monitor size so I can use bigger images to showcase my work.  I am also able to group my galleries.  My goal with this was to focus a bit more on my newborns since I do a lot of newborns and would love to do even more.  I also have a “growing” gallery for all of my older babies, kids and relationship shots.  Still another gallery is for my High School Seniors.  And of course there is plenty of good information on session details, what to wear, and pricing.  Simply click on Home in the navigation bar above or click the image below to see the new site.  Now go grab a glass of wine and enjoy.  :)

Sleepie Newbie- Baby J | Cumming Newborn Photographer

Posted on January 26, 2009

What a blessed family…  they have been clients of mine for several years now and recently added a new addition to their family.  Sweet Baby J.  He was so peaceful and calm for me, which according to mom is how he has been the whole time.  I would definitely believe that too.  I, as most mothers can, see personalities right away with these new babies.  It is amazing that they can express their little selves so early.  Baby J joins a very sweet big sister and an adorable big brother.  And while life with three is crazy (I totally get that B & C!) it is wonderful!  So here a few of Baby J to share. He was so patient with me and all the chaos around him.  Gotta love it when the third is this laid back, a true blessing for the parents.  :)

Thank you T family for sharing this new little blessing with me.  I had a wonderful time with All of you!

Let the Sun shine! | Atlanta Newborn Photographer

Posted on January 25, 2009

I was so happy to see the clouds parting and the sun peeking through around noon today.  I got to meet the sweetest little newborn today and she (like the day ended up being) was perfect.  She slept like a little champ for me.  We had the best time with her.  Mom and Dad are quite smitten with their new little bundle of joy who arrived in the world a mere 10 days ago.  I was so excited to see these images when I got home and they did not disappoint.  I had a very hard time picking just a few to share with you, so maybe when I have proofed the whole session I will share a few more.  But for now meet Baby E!  Thank you S and C for sharing your sweet little bundle with me.

4 weeks | Marietta Newborn Photographer

Posted on January 21, 2009

So most of you know that I like my newborns to see me around 7 days or so.  Well… sometimes that just doesn’t work out.  And I will still give it the collage try if they are a little older I just know and warn the parents it might not be the same session.  Well little Mr. J came to see me today… he is 4 weeks old and proved that you can still get some pretty cute sleeping shots after a week old.  He didn’t go to sleep without some work by me and mom, mostly mom.  She was such a trooper.  She rocked and bounced and shhh’d till he went to sleep on several occasions.  Never got frazzled and always seemed very calm.  And as long as the parents want to keep going I am totally up for that.  We ended up wearing him out eventually and got some great shots.  I picked a few favorites to share here.

Who can resist a sweet baby smile?  I just love this shot.

And this is my favorite of the day.  Totally worth all the bouncing don’t you think?

img_9286bw.jpg

Thank you E for sharing your sweet little guy with me.  I had the best time with you today.  J is a lucky baby to have a mother with such a caring touch and abundance of patience, truly an inspiration to all mothers.

Little Miss N | Atlanta Baby Photographer

Posted on January 18, 2009

This is the 3rd time (if count in the belly) I have met Miss N! She is a doll and her parents are just the best.  I always have the best time with them.  They are so sweet to each other, so involved with their baby and so in love with her.  There is nothing that makes my heart smile bigger than seeing a family who is completely in love with each other.  And in my business I get to see it a lot… just another wonderful reason I love my job.  Miss N took some time to warm up to me but eventually she did. She was hard to get to crack a smile but I brought in reinforcements– my 7 year old assistant in training.  Garrett hung out with us almost the entire session.  He figured out ways to get sweet baby N to smile over and over.  It was too cute.  He even told me as we were setting up outside that he wanted to be a photographer when he grew up.  It just melted me to hear him say that.  So sweet.  So here is Miss N…  all 7 1/2 months of her!

Grandmother was visiting from Tokyo so we took a few of the three ladies.  I just think they are
all so beautiful.

I have a soft spot in my heart for thumb suckers.  I think this shot is just adorable of her.

And a close up of those sweet baby teeth.

And one outside… it was like 50 degrees here today and by the afternoon just beautiful.

 Thank you M and M for sharing your beautiful daughter with me.  I look forward to her 1 year!

8 months already | Atlanta, GA Baby Photographer

Posted on January 17, 2009

How do my babies grow so fast?  It seems like yesterday I was photographing this little guy as a newborn.  I remember him so well. He was so peaceful and so calm.  And to this day he still is.  He is just a little joy.  He has the most beautiful blue eyes that just draw you right in and he loved watching my camera “blink” at him.  He would just stare at me.  We took the poor little guy out in the cold for a few and even though it was 30 degrees outside he was just as calm.  When we saw his little nose turning red we knew it was time to head back in. :)  Thank you K and J for sharing your little boy with me.  I am so enjoying watching him grow throughout his first year.  It is such a special time!

This is one of my faves!

And who can resist his big blues?

Mr. C - 4 months | Alpharetta, Georgia Baby Photographer

Posted on January 14, 2009

Today I got a very special visit from Mr. C.  He is now four months old and is so darn cute.  He has grown so much since I met him as a newborn.  See for yourself here.  He was so happy and full of smiles for me, course when I put the camera over my face he looked at me with a puzzled look of “where did she go?”  But I caught a couple of smiles none the less.  We had a great time together and even though it was cold outside it was warm and cozy inside and the sun was bright and shiny for some yummy light.

So strong sitting in the basket.

Such pretty pretty blue eyes.
