Over the years I’ve taken numerous family photos all over Georgia. Big families, small families, families with dogs, cats, alpacas… well not alpacas, but that would be pretty cool. But out of all the families I’ve come across, I’ve never met a child happier than Isabella. I’m not kidding. If she wasn’t smiling, she was laughing- but really she was just laughing most of the time. Maybe I had something hanging out of my nose to set her off. :) Isabella, I’m told, is also fluent in Mandarin, reading at years above her level, and already is learning to play a musical instrument. Needless to say, her mother is quite proud.
And now the follow me routine. :)
“Just a small town girl… livin’ in a lonely world,” she started off. From those few epic lyrics, I knew Kate Tucker was destined to be rock’s one great hope. She will [eventually] be what the world of rock music needs to save itself from the pop divas (yes Adam Levine, I’m talking about you) currently ruling the airwaves. With rock radio stations dying at an alarming rate and rock record sales in sharp decline, Kate Tucker will save it all. Though she barely has enough hair to tease and hairspray, she has some very healthy vocal cords and a desire to ROCK (note below, her hands are both making the Sign of the Horns). It’s just too bad she’s still roughly 17.9 years away from being able to go on tour without her parents… just don’t stop believin’.
… and now for the rest of Kate Tucker’s Christmas/newborn family photos. :)
A fine Saturday afternoon… for moustaches! Seriously, Sarah, Patrick, Brian, and I had a great time walking around Decatur scoping out photo spots last weekend. This type of shoot is exactly the reason why I bought the BULK pack of fake moustaches to keep in my camera bag at all times. In most spots we were able to get 1 serious and 1 moustache shot.
I had a chance to hang with the Mitchell family in John’s Creek last month. Megan, Madison, and Sean are three of the brightest, fun kids I know. Megan just got her driver’s license and it already taking a number of AP classes. Madison also dominates her classes while flying through the air as a competition cheerleader. Sean is not only a rock star on drums, but you may also remember his skills from my football post last year. We had such a fun time and I’ve gotta tell ya, trying to time 3 kids bouncing on a trampoline was the most difficult part of the day. And with that said, when the toughest part of your day is bouncing on a trampoline, there’s really not much to complain about. :)
Adding a trampoline to any photo session is always a good time.
Sean had an issue with his timing.
The Giles family is one of my favorite repeat customers for yearly family portraits. With a new edition earlier this year (Emily), Kathy wanted to make sure to get some good holiday card photos. We headed out to McDaniel Farm Park in Gwinnett to snap some with the falling leaves. We had a fun time, but I will say it was a bit colder than expected. So cold, that the girls were very unhappy to be wearing such cute outfits. Kathy always dresses her girls so well, but we all learned that if you want smiling faces, you need kids that don’t feel like icicles, no matter how cute!
Stephen was so excited to see this out behind the original farm house. I think the humor was lost on the girls. :)
Continuing with my blog catch up are the Harrelsons. These photos were taken just outside of Peachtree City, GA at the home of Ciska, Wes, Addie, and baby Jacob.
Skinned knees and cute boots. The life of Addie Harrelson.
After wiping the boogers from my 50mm lens, I was able to get more photos of Braxton from the pumpkin patch in Norcross. He’s such a fun baby to be around. Always smiling, drooling, and laughing- except when he is distracted by a pretty girl. No joke- Mommy and Daddy says he can pick the prettiest girl in the room out and just stare at her. Hopefully his flirting style evolves over time because I can assure you the staring tactic can get you into more trouble than it’s worth. :)
I was dead serious. He’s starting at a pretty girl right here.
