Mini Portrait Sessions!

Desperately need an updated family portrait for your holiday cards this year?  How about a fun, quick, and affordable family “mini” session at Piedmont Park in the gorgeous fall Atlanta weather?  On October 30th we will set up camp at Piedmont Park and offer HUGE DISCOUNTS for a day of portraits!  Here’s the deal:

-A 30 min session for $75, scheduled between 9am-5pm on Oct. 30th, 2010

-Includes 3 differents breakdowns of groups (one whole family, one with mom and dad only, and one with kids only).

-BTW- These are not limited to families only.  If you need a headshot, an image of you and your loved one, etc. come on down to the park!

-You get $25 off of a regularly priced future session with me if you refer a friend that signs up and completes a session!

-Best portrait of each of the three groupings will be edited and uploaded to a web gallery.  From the  web gallery you can order holiday cards, prints, and just about anything else you can  dream of!

Folks this is a GREAT deal and a significant savings from my regularly priced sessions!  Sign up now as spots are already being filled!  Can’t wait to see you at the park!

Hey everyone-  I wanted to introduce you to Dwight Raby, a local Atlanta musician that is on the rise.  He has a new CD coming out literally any minute now.  I just heard the first single and it is amazing!  We had a couple of sessions together (one location shoot and one studio shoot) and I wanted to show you a few of my favorites.  Enjoy!

The first one is my absolute favorite…

And one more for fun…

Party Animals….

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….

Happy Fathers Day!

I couldn’t have been more excited to have the chance to photograph these precious little 2 year old twins.  Mom was having these pictures taken to give to her husband as a special father’s day surprise (so sweet)!  When we arrived mom said the kids were a little shy, so we sat on the floor and played with them…..after about 5 minutes we were best buds.  We ran in the yard, swang in the swing, and had playtime indoors afterwards to cool off.   My sweet husband came along to help out and these kids were so sweet he actually said (and I quote) “These kids are so cute they make MY uterus ache.”  Ha! Ha!

Thanks so much to the Pearce Family for having me come into your home.  I hope your husband enjoyed his father’s day gift!

OK……I know.  I’m a terrible blogger.  Life has just gotten the better of me lately.  Thought I would catch you up to speed…..hang on!

While we were doing headshots we sold a condo……

Bought a house….

Moved (there are no pictures of the moving……it wasn’t pretty).

Did a maternity session with an absolutely gorgeous mother and daughter and caught this precious little moment….

My sweet pooch Frei (pronounced like a french fry) was featured in Atlanta magazine as “Pet of the Month” for their February issue…isn’t he adorable???

Had a great South Atlanta Flickr (SAF) Administrator shoot with my buddies down south of town.  We had the great opportunity to photograph artist Kawai Laurencin.  I literally had to pause for a moment during this shoot to just pick my jaw up off the ground…his talent is just beyond belief and he couldn’t be a more warm natured soul.

Did a group shoot with South Atlanta Flickr

I also became volunteer coordinator for Atlanta Photography Exhibit….get involved and check us out!  We have several exhibits and fun events coming up this year.  Check out the calendar at the website here and send me an email at meg@futurephotogs.org if you are interested in volunteering!

And now……a moment to recover!

Giddy

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.

Bring it on 2010!

Here’s hoping that everyone has a tremendous 2010.
