Welcome!

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!

The contest has been extended! | Georgia Child Photographer

Re-read the post about the contest below. The dates have been changed due to all of the things that have happened this week. Wow! The things that could happen in a week:

1. We had to replace our nanny (the biggest headache!)
2. Finally getting over this cold that hit 3/4 of our family members.
3. Getting my email hacked! (sorry for all of the missed emails and lost emails) If you haven't heard from me please re-send all correspondence to christie@paperlanterngallery.com only and not any other email accounts.

But things to look for in the upcoming week:
1. an awesome newborn session!
2. a commercial shoot (ok. so I don't always share my commercial work since it doesn't necessarily pertain to babies, children, and families), but I do commercial work or sometimes I share it and pass it off as some cute little baby! ;o)
3.  Also if you know any high school juniors (class of 2011), tell them to contact me ASAP!!! I am going to start accepting applications for spokes models for the class of 2011 soon! I will be accepting up to two students from each school in Gwinnett County, parts of Dekalb, and Hall counties!

Also, my pricing will be changing in a few months, so book your sessions soon to lock in our current rates. Rates will be locked in once session fees are paid.

I try not to post without a photo: I love it when he smiles so much that I can't see his eyes!

Grand Opening: First Contest! | Gwinnett GA child photographer

Come celebrate our Grand Opening and be a part of Paper Lantern Photography's (PLP) first contest!

Submit a favorite photo of your child to be posted on our blog (please do not send photos which other photographers have captured since this usually will be a copyright infringement). My assistants and I will post our favorite 15 images. The public (your friends and family) will be allowed to vote on their favorite image. The winner will receive a free session from PLP, free 8x10, and 20% off prints and products (a value of over $200).

ALL applicants, whether chosen to be featured on our blog or not, will receive 25% off session fees and 10% off prints and products.

Rules:
1. Free session must be redeemed by 04/15/2010

2. Only one vote per day (but you can tell your family and friends to come and vote too) I will know if you vote more than once and reserve the right to disqualify any applicant.
If one child wins the contest, all siblings of that child will be able to participate in the free session.

3. Applicants must reside within 35 miles of zip code 30047. If you are unsure if you reside within this area, map your address to this zip code and it will tell you the distance.
