I had the pleasure of having these two beautiful sisters back in the studio this past weekend. This time they enjoyed some biscuits and tea, well it was actually just water but “almost” tea, right? They got the chance to play dress up with the dresses I have available in my client closet along with the beautiful head bows.

The floral dress on the left is by a boutique called Belle & Kai. They have a great selection of beautiful dresses for your princess with a great variety of sizes available. We have 3 different dresses from this boutique along with others available for your session. The hair pieces used in these photos are from a boutique called Made by Mae. The two displayed below are just a handful of their beautiful and angelic designs. We have a few to choose from for your session as well.

These sessions can be booked anytime during the month of February at the special rate. Bring in your princess and allow us to document her very own tea party. For more information on these limited sessions book here

I have a toddler that was speaking clearly around 8 months and saying multi-syllable words. A few months later he completely stopped talking for about a year. The tantrums were outrageous as he was no longer able to communicate his needs the way he learned to. His hearing was tested and it came back as normal. He has a therapist come to the house to help him but now that he is learning to talk again he can’t pronounce words the same. At 8 months he used to say “banana” and now at 2 years old he says “nanana”. Doctors can’t explain it and offer little to no help. So I’ve taken it upon myself to create more hands-on activities and sensory projects at home to help stimulate and create a fun learning environment.

I created this color board a couple days ago and so far he has learned 4 colors. Not to mention that since I also taped a matching color at the bottom it’s now become a matching game for him as well, making the board have a double purpose.

Supplies:

  • Foam board cut in half, the back side is a neon green. (www.Dollar Tree.com)  $1
  • Paint Chip Cards (www.Lowes.com) Free
  • Velcro (www.Walmart.com) $2.97
  • Printer (or you can print at www.FedExKinkos.com for a few cents)

 

I went to Lowes and collected as many colors as I could without overwhelming my little guy. I figured I can always update it later with tougher colors. I then cut them into squares but cutting off the top triangle part and the bottom part that has a cutout of a house. The top part (the triangle part after its cut) was used for the bottom (taped down to board) as a guide. A guide for me to place the velcro and a matching guide for my toddler that can’t read yet. As he is placing the colors back I repeat the colors out loud so he’s not just matching the colors but he’s hears them as well.

I created the names in English and Spanish (probably got a few wrong) because I want him to be bilingual. You are welcomed to just do them in English or your native language. I then cut them down and covered them completely with tape in case he has dirty fingers they can just be wiped off.

This little beauty came to the studio to play with her mom’s beautiful wedding dress. At first, she did not want to have anything to do with the dress and that’s how the first picture came about. Then she just became a natural. I loved this session so much I turned it into a styled session. I’m a boy mom so getting to photograph little girls in their mom’s wedding dress is so special to me. These sessions Make for a timeless and magical gift for her on her wedding day.

Sweet Isaac was stillborn, surrounded by love. He was prayed for and is deeply loved. While in the hospital his parents received gifts of love from several people, but two companies stand out.

Rock Goodbye Angel came to them in the midst of the worst tragedy they could ever go through, losing their child, and gave them hope, love, understanding, and so much more. Had it not been for the founder Angela they wouldn’t be where they are today. She was and is truly a lifeline for them. The other company that came to help was Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep . The photographer, Jim, was kind, understanding and patient. He gave them the everlasting gift of photos of their sweet angel.

In order to Honor Isaac, and his memory Musa Natural Photography, Eyepop Photo Studio and Melissa Giles Photography would l like to do the same in the best way we know how.

Rainbow baby: A rainbow baby is a baby born shortly after the loss of a previous baby due to miscarriage, stillbirth, or death in infancy. This term is given to these special rainbow babies because a rainbow typically follows a storm, giving us hope of what’s to come.

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!

My cousin drove in from Marietta to visit for my youngest’s birthday party and I “twisted” her arm into scouting a new area with me. She’s just absolutely beautiful and totally owned this session.

Can’t wait to take out some of my upcoming sessions to this location, it’s just so magical.

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.

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting this family and their new addition, Greyson. Big brother was excited, patient and very much in love with him. His sweet nursery was the perfect backdrop for his session.
