Yall! I am so excited because The National Association of Professional Child Photographers (NAPCP) has chosen my image of Ethan underwater as their weekly favorites! This community has been so amazing throughout my photography journey, if you are a photographer and want to connect with other photographers (near and far) I can’t recommend joining NAPCP enough.

Big hugs to their team and the community over there!

I have been so excited to finally try my underwater case for my camera. This summer Ethan has been taking swim lessons and he’s finally brave enough to jump into the deep end! On the way back from the beach, we stopped at Mimi’s house and took a few jumps off the diving board into her pool. Yay!

I took the boys to the beach in May. Just me and the boys! Strangers would pass us in the elevator and say things like, “You’re so brave” and “Looks like you have your hands full!” I would just smile and think to myself…. I am so blessed to even be here (thanks to my mom and step dad). Yes there’s ton of stuff to carry, but we made it work. We even simplified and realized how little we really needed to carry by the end of the week.

At night we would go down by the water and watch the sunset. Jackson was 10 months and would usually fall asleep in my arms to the sound of the waves crashing. This particular night Ethan was playing with the sand and I was snapping away with Jackson on my hip <—- this is very common and probably why people tell me I have my hands full.  And just like that, Ethan’s world collided with nature at the same moment. The sky ombre matched his skin and the water matched his pants. And the sand falling from his hands popped out just like his belly did. Everything was in sync. My heart was so full in the moments down there by the water and now I have this picture to remember our time together.

All that hard work and I have this moment, a moment I would have otherwise missed, to keep and reflect on forever and ever. My hands and my heart are so very full when I am at the beach. It’s worth it.<3

This was such a fun session!! I have photographed big sis Elise since she was a baby and I am honored to continue to freeze time for this family for little brother Grant, loving called G2. (He’s named after his daddy, Grant) There’s this one special spot on the Atlanta Beltline that you can appear as though you are in the middle of nowhere with beautiful flowers… but truly we were just in the middle of the city with bicyclists and runners nearly plowing me over as I shot these adorable kiddos!

Tia’s parents asked me to document her 1st year with multiple sessions to show how much she will change during her first year. As soon as I saw her for her 6 month session, she had her two fingers in her mouth. Mom and dad said, “that’s Tia now! She loves those fingers!” We began shooting and they would naturally pull her fingers away from her mouth. And then I thought, ya know… she won’t be doing this all the way to college. Let’s do a special picture for those special fingers 😊 Her she is! Pretty Tia at 6 monthsAtlantaBabyPhotographerAshleyBerrie
