Welcome to my new photography blog. Paper Lantern Photography is my little nook and outlet for creativity. Check in often to see what/who I’ve been meeting. I will always try to post a sneak peek from new sessions.

I’m a mom to highly energetic toddler twin boys. They are my inspiration for photography and the reason I strive to be a better photographer. Watching them play makes me want to save every single moment before they grow up. I want to document their bonding, fighting, and view on the world. Being with them helps me understand that it is important to capture these memories. It helps me to connect to my clients and strive to freeze those memories for them. Whether you are celebrating a milestone, expecting a new addition, or just out for some fun, I would like to be your lifestyle photographer.

My style of photography is a little unique from your typical studio. I tend to be more natural, fresh, and on-location. My editing style is simple and I don't process your photographs with the latest fad. My goal is to capture your lifestyle and create photographs that are timeless. You will walk away with original photos which you will treasure forever.

Enjoy browsing my blog and email me to set up a session!

Winter Photo Sessions in Georgia | Atlanta Child Photographer

Brrrr. It's been so cold here lately. There are still some spots of ice left on the ground. I've never seen the lake in our neighborhood frozen before and honestly, who wants to spend a lot of time outdoors when it's this cold right?

What do we do then? Now is a perfect time to do those indoor shots of your little ones. Don't worry if you think your house does not photograph well. Just as long as there is no clutter and lots of natural light, my shooting style blurs out the background. A unique idea this year for Valentine's Day cards can be photo cards for your children to pass out at school and to send to family members. Another idea are tea parties. These qualify for mini session prices and corresponding print packages.

My babies who are currently enrolled in the baby milestone plans have great potential indoors. I know you spent a lot of time decorating that nursery and I always like taking photos in there as well as on back drop stands and living areas in your home. Your babies are so cute anywhere we place them!

This was one of the last photos we took outside before it turned super cold. In the meantime, think warm thoughts!
