Atlanta Portrait Photographer | Vintage Concept Portrait Session | Creative Photographer, Decatur, Georgia
This portrait session was special as my gorgeous subject is a very special gal. As a portrait photographer it’s always an unbelievable treat when a subject is up for a creative concept shoot. For this session my subject wanted to embody a bygone era, and came to the table with a beautiful collection of vintage clothing, much from the 1940′s. We had an absolute blast together! I love photographing this kind of portrait session. It’s one on one, creative, and the ending product is super special and unique. It’s a chance to move slowly through the creative process, rather than the hustle that I usually have when wearing my ‘wedding photographer hat’. I hope you enjoy this radiant beauty, and our one of a kind portrait session together. I could go on and on about this gal, and how truly magical she is, but I don’t think I’d do her justice. I’ll let the images speak for themselves.
Do you have an alter ego? Want to explore it? Let me and my lens help you out with that? Hope to hear from you soon!
Decatur, Georgia Portrait Photographer | Editorial | Senior Portraits
Working with this gorgeous young gal was such a pleasure. We met up in Decatur, Georgia to capture some great new images for her comp card. When photographing portraits for an aspiring model/actor it’s important to know your market. What this little lady needed was a mix of fresh and friendly editorial, and the opportunity to show a little range in a commercial way. This kind of portrait session, with this type of subject isn’t terribly different from a senior portrait session. It’s about showcasing different looks, and aspects of one’s personality. It’s about fresh, young imagery. As a portrait photographer one of my favorite experiences is the one on one. It’s always a little bit of magic to have that undivided attention on one fabulous subject.
Comp card photo shoots should be all about contrast, range, and personality!
Are you in need of some new images for your portfolio? Need to freshen up your comp card? Maybe you are just in the market for senior portraits? Maybe you are just fabulous, and want to plan your own editorial style photo shoot? I’m your girl! Let’s talk soon…….
Decatur, Georgia Family Portrait Photographer | Gainesville, Georgia
Family portraits are fabulous for a lot of reasons. Family portraits take me from Decatur to every corner of Georgia, and these sessions are light and fun. I think the best thing about working with families is that every year I get to catch up with them, watch them grow in front of my lens. I get a kick out of it. True, I’m not curing any diseases, but I feel that the work is important. I’m helping a family memorialize their own little history. It’s intimate, and it’s special to me. :) I adore this little family! They are so cute together, no? We met outside of Gainesville, Georgia for this one.
Every portrait session is about making my clients feel at ease, and using my creative eye to capture the moment in a beautiful way. With little children, I watch. I let them be themselves. I direct in a way that they don’t know they are being directed. That’s the trick. :)
I always try to steal a minute away with my moms. Moms just don’t end up in as many family pictures as they should! And these beautiful, strong women rarely are in a photograph alone it seems.
Spring is a perfect time for your next family portrait session, and it’s right around the corner. Photo By Gannon’s family portraits are fun, and completely unique to your beautiful family. Get in touch, and we’ll plan your custom portrait session. I hope to hear from you soon………….
Family Portrait Photographer | Atlanta | Decatur, Georgia
This Atlanta family portrait session was too sweet. The family’s newest member was such an adorable little girl, and the three of them together made for a perfect trio. I’m so glad that I was able to catch up with these fabulous clients. They are an absolutely BEAUTIFUL family, and I’m so happy to have had them in front of my lens. I can’t wait for next time!
How gorgeous is this little gal? :)
There are so many amazing things about being a family portrait photographer. The best part might be getting to see my clients every year during milestones and celebrations. Maybe the best part is the hundred holiday cards that come in the mail featuring my portrait work. Maybe the best part is watching all of the adorable little children grow up, and being a little part of that family’s history. Maybe it’s ALL the best! Spring is right around the corner. Let’s plan your family’s portrait session!
Northeast Georgia Portrait Photographer | Family Portraits | Turnerville, Georgia
This family portrait session in northeast Georgia was so much fun! I had this GORGEOUS farm property to work with, a family full of personality, and we had a blast with it. I can’t wait to work with this group again. I have a ton of fabulous clients all around northeast Georgia, and it’s always fabulous to have a portrait session up there in the fresh air. For this I drove from my home base in Decatur, Georgia to Turnerville, Georgia. Turnerville is a tiny little spot in between Clarkesville and Tallulah Falls.
How cute are these newly engaged love birds?
Being a family portrait photographer takes me all over Georgia. I’m all about shaking it up in new locations. I love that one day I’m scouting for an industrial look in Atlanta, and the next I’m finding something rustic in Habersham county. Variety ’tis the spice of life, and it suites me just fine! If too much time has gone by since your last family portrait, let’s talk! Every photo session is unique, and tailored to YOU.
Decatur, Georgia Family Portrait Photographer | Fayetteville, Georgia
For this family portrait session I traveled from Decatur, Georgia to the Fayetteville area. This gorgeous old mill location and AWESOME family was the dream combo for this photographer. There was so much love flying around with this family. It was absolutely beautiful. I had such a fun time with these guys! As a portrait photographer I work all over the Atlanta area (and beyond), and work with every kind of personality. Because of this part of my job is to put everyone at ease so that we can make some magic, and have some FUN! I immediately jived with this group, and I think we got some amazing photos. Have a look!
With a matriarch and patriarch like these two it was so easy for me to see why this family was so lovely. They were SO in love, and it was so easy to see.
When I’m photographing family portraits I’m always trying to get the little moments along the way.
If you are looking for a family portrait photographer I would love to meet you. I’m a photographer that goes above and beyond to keep every session unique, fun, and fabulous. I call Decatur, Georgia my home, but literally travel everywhere for my clients. I hope to hear from you soon!
Children’s Portrait Photographer | Atlanta, Georgia | Children’s Photographer
Throughout the year I photograph hundreds of children around the Atlanta area. When I’m wearing my children’s portrait photographer ‘hat’ it’s all about letting my beautiful little subject’s personalities shine through. I’m not really a fan of using the same cute props and backdrops for every client. I want each session to feel unique, and super personal. For my portrait session with this little doll we worked in her own bedroom, and by a local lake. I love how her sweet personality really shows up in these. Too cute!
I adore this portrait. I see it many years from now ending up in a double frame, accompanied by a portrait of this little gal in the mirror on her wedding day. That’s the kind of day dreams I have about my work as a photographer. Makes me smile. :) It’s the best treat for a photographer when your work truly fills the storyboard of people’s lives.
This shot cracks me up. She is really serving it up like a pro!
Newborn Photography | Atlanta, Georgia | Decatur, GA Wedding Photographer
Photographing newborns is something I always do in my client’s home. There are a few reasons for this. Number one, it’s a comfortable place for both baby AND mommy. Logistically it just makes sense. From my perspective it’s much better because I can find things around your house that are meaningful to use during the shoot. The last thing I ever want to do is use some arbitrary studio prop that’s been used with 1000 other sessions. Not my style. For this little man’s photo session I loved pulling a couple of his father’s favorite bow ties. This little guy is his father’s namesake, and it was just too perfect. :)
When I plan a newborn portrait in Atlanta we try to plan it for the first 10 days or so of our little one’s life. This is how you can achieve the cute cooperation from your tiny subject. For this session we did it a bit later than that. In my opinion it’s just as fabulous to wait. The little babe will be much more alert. Sure, you may not be able to do the cute shots we all love of a newborn curled up in a wooden bowl or other such vessel, but who says that’s what every mom is into? Sometimes it’s just about classic portraiture.
Are you expecting? Let’s talk about planning a session today! I’d love to capture that precious time that flies by so, so quickly.
Fernbank Museum Photography Session | Decatur, Georgia Photographer
I photographed this gorgeous little gal at the Fernbank Museum in Atlanta, Georgia. Fernbank is a cultural keystone for the area. I’ve photographed weddings here, and enjoyed exploring the museum in my down time. Making use of it’s beautiful grounds we made quick work of this session that marked this little cutie’s 6th birthday.
As an Atlanta portrait photographer it’s all about finding the right location for my subjects. I always enjoy spotting a new spot, and often go out on location scouts around town. Fernbank was a perfect spot for this one on one session.
My family and children’s portrait sessions happily fill my week days, and almost every Saturday is spent with a pair of love birds. It’s such a great fit for me to have something different in front of my lens every day. One day it’s a tiny newborn in a client’s home. The next day it’s a family portrait session on location in Atlanta. Variety is the spice of life, and my lens is addicted to it!
Photographing children is always amazing. They are such cool little people. That’s how I treat them. I respect the individual that they are, and I find that they respond to this. I’ve been told that I’m a bit of a wiz in the art of stepping into a child’s world. It’s a happy place to be, and I adore working with my little clients. :)
Atlanta Pregnancy Photography | Decatur, Georgia Wedding Photographer
Pregnancy photography is a chance to try a TON of things. They can be cute, sexy, family oriented, or showcase you and you alone. I like to do ALL of that in ONE shoot. From a Demi-inspired glam shot to a photo of a beautiful pregnant woman cuddling with the children she already has…….and everything in between. Of course some of them don’t make it on the blog. This maternity portrait session was extra special as this gorgeous redhead is a lifelong friend!
And baby makes FIVE!
I LOVE this one! I’m always very aware of shadows and negative space, and I think this one was a keeper for sure.
What a wonderful gift to watch your bestie of 25+ years turn into a beautiful, graceful, AMAZING mother of THREE. Cheers to that!
