A couple of weeks ago I had the distinct pleasure of photographing my neighbor’s sons second birthday party.  They were total party animals!

Can you BELIEVE this cake???  The best part is that it was as delicious as it is beautiful.  It was seriously a work of art.  Three layers of heaven…..The cake was from Matty Cakes here in Atlanta, GA if you have a special occasion coming up!  Heck……even if you don’t have a special occaision……..one of these cakes needs to be on your bucket list!

Plenty of gifts for the birthday boy!

A little refresher for all the parents….

Along with a little Fox Brothers Barbeque…..yummmmmmmmmm

Margaritas, Fox Brothers BBQ, AND face painting?  They pulled out all the stops!  I think the birthday boy had a great time!

And now…..cake time!

Thanks so much for letting me be a part of your special celebration Cole!  In closing a pic of my favorite little decorations….

I honestly don’t even know where to start…. I’ve never been so giddy to get up at 6:00am and work for 13 straight hours IN MY LIFE.  I’ve had the most amazing last two days schlepping gear, adjusting lights, exploring down dark and dusty spider web infested hallways, watching, and learning from someone I consider one of the best in the business.   Thanks so much to Zack Arias, Meghan Arias, and Used Film for including me in this shoot and for being the generous, humble, well natured people you are.   You also happen to be a heck of a lot of fun to hang out with.

For you photography lovers out there……you are just going to DIE when you see his images from the last few days!  Congratulations to Zack for taking some “personal time” and keeping the creativity alive.

P.S.- I know……this is the first EVER post without a picture, but this was all about Zack’s vision….keep an eye on his blog and you are bound to see some images pop up over the course of the next several months.

P.S.S.- Thank you to the creators of Diet Coke for providing enough caffeine to keep me going throughout the last couple of days as well……I think I have a 12 pack per day habit now.

Atlanta Midtown Help Portrait Final Stats:

46 killer volunteers

52 families

139 portraits

It’s a wrap Atlanta.  Everyone’s generosity, time, committment, and love produced a heartwarming event which brought smiles to the faces of many that really needed something to smile about this time of year.  There were some GORGEOUS families that were DECKED OUT in their best holiday outfits yesterday.  You made us feel really special and honored to have the chance to take YOUR portraits.

Thanks so much to the volunteers that made yesterday run so smoothly.  You processed pictures, lugged your photography gear through the freezing rain, and shook the hell outta some stuffed animals to make a LOT of  babies smile.  This would not have been possible without each and every one of you.  Check out a link of said stuffed animal shaking here (courtesy of Julie Harnage Photography)…..

Also- Thanks to Families First for partnering with us, scheduling the families for their portraits, and allowing us to use their Midtown offices to host the very first Help Portrait in midtown Atlanta.  Their dedicated staff made this so easy to plan and coordinate.

Be sure to check out tonight’s CBS evening news and CNNs stories (airing at 6pm EST) tonight about some of the other Help Portrait events around the country.

P.S.  If you want to check out some of the behind the scenes pictures you can check them out here.

P.S.S.  I will not be posting pictures of any of the families from yesterday to protect their privacy.  Just know they looked fabulous.  Thanks for understanding.  : )

P.S.S.S.  I will, however, include a funny shot of some of our volunteers!
