Hoffman Lifestyle Newborn Twins | Atlanta Newborn Photographer

Not only did I get the opportunity to capture this family's Fresh 48, but I also got to see these two sweet babies once they made their way home! I get asked sometimes which session is better a Fresh 48 in the hospital or a Lifestyle Session at home? To be honest, I can't pick which one I love more. I think that they both bring something unique and equally as beautiful to the picture.

At a Fresh 48 Newborn Session, such as the one I did for this family, I was able to capture the exciting moment that big sister met her sisters for the very first time. That, my friends, is not something you get to re-enact! Those first days in the hospital are also such a blur with people coming in and out constantly, plus there's a big chance you haven't slept in a few days, it's all a blur after a while. Having Fresh 48 photos done helps you remember those first days. How little your baby was, how you felt the first time you saw them, how quickly you fell in love with them.

At a Lifestyle Newborn Session we do still capture the newness, and the connection, but we get to capture it in the place you call home, your people, in your place, surrounded by what makes you a family. There's more time to capture those sweet sibling photos, and I get to document that nursery you spent so much time preparing. I guess you could say there is a little more personality infused in this session. 

Both sessions are important, and if you can swing it, I urge you to book both. I do offer a special when you book both sessions. I will typically wait until your baby is 4 weeks to do a lifestyle newborn session if we also did a Fresh 48 so you get to see how much they have changed in just a mere 4 weeks. Hang on mama, because the growing and changing, it doesn't slow down! Give yourself something beautiful to hold on to these days that pass by so quickly.

Christmas Tree Decorating | Woodstock Documentary Photographer

Hello there!! I have been so busy with a super fun & exciting client project that I haven't even had a chance to work any of my personal family documentary pictures & projects. It seems I have skipped posting a few of my most recent session on the blog as well...oops!! Look for some new content coming this week!

We went out the Saturday after Thanksgiving to Bottom's Christmas Tree Farm in Cumming, GA to cut down our Christmas tree for the season. I shared a couple of my favorite pictures from our adventure over on Instagram. We found a 7 foot beauty of a pine tree, cut it down, loaded up on the roof rack, and hauled her home. She fit perfectly in her spot in the foyer, and was ready to decorate the next day.

This is Conor's second Christmas, he is now 22 months old, so Christmas has been a little more exciting for him than last year. I love watching his face light up when we turn on the lights, he was so curious about all the ornaments and eager to help. Helping is kind of his thing these days. We were careful to pull out all the breakables and put them out of his reach. Which might have made for a lopsided tree, but it's our tree and it's a definite reflection of this season of our lives, and who we are. Down to the stack of wrapped presents fenced off by baby gates, and the fact we are decorating our tree in Halloween pajamas.
