This little guy turns TWO this month and a good old cake smash just couldn’t cut it when you’re turning TWO! He came to Eyepop Photo Studio and we gave him a DONUT SMASH. He was so much fun and really made me feel like all the crazy noises and funny faces I did make me into the funniest person on earth. I can’t decide on my favorite from this session. I absolutely love his bashful faces but his smile is just so infectious, I found myself missing shots because I was giggling with him from behind the camera. I mean just look through these and tell me you don’t want to just hug him up.

 

Happy Birthday, Eli!! 

Donut Grow Up little guy.

Friday, October 6 was our baby’s second birthday! As a photographer, I need to sometimes stop and remind myself to also capture my own memories … my growing family. I wanted to do something a little different from the normal cake smash and saw a fellow photographer do a donut smash. I thought it was brilliant and quickly gathered the items I needed. I have some amazing friends, some of which are also photographers, and they let me borrow a few items to bring my vision to life. All I needed was my little boy that never turns down a meal to go at these donuts and the photos below tell the story. The story of how there were 12 donuts and had I not stopped him they would’ve all been gone. The story of one of the first few times our little guy had sweets. The story of how I captured that little twinkle in his eyes that shows up when he’s getting his way.

Our story!  Happy 2nd Birthday baby boy!

A few months ago I did Journey’s lifestyle in-home newborn session in Winder, GA.  I swear it feels like I blinked and she’s already sitting up. If I feel like time is flying by, I can only imagine how her parents feel. She has such a sweet soul and she’s such a little cuddly bear. I knew I wanted to style this session this way the day I did her newborn session I mean look at those lashes!

That red vintage buggy had her name all over it and she was such a sport.

I cannot wait for her to return to the studio for her one-year session.
