I Heart Faces {Just for Fun}

Ice cream is happiness condensed.
~Jessie Lane Adams

I just love this blog!  Every week they pick a theme and you can submit your photograph.  This week is 'Just for fun'.  Since we are visiting my parents at the beach I thought a picture of one of my girls would be perfect.  Miss P's love for ice cream is something I have never seen.  I had to snap a picture of her eating her favorite treat on the boardwalk.

Happy Father's Day

Any man can be a father, but it takes a special man to be a dad.

Happy Father's Day.  I wanted to pay tribute to 3 special men in my life.  First, my husband Jonathan.  He is an amazing father.  My girls are so blessed to have this man in their lives.  I have never meet anyone with more integrity and grace.  Thank you for all that you do for your girls.     

Second, my step-dad Jeff.  He stepped in and filled those father shoes when I was 10.  I remember we were driving to the beach when I was 12 and he found out that my sister and I had never had a bananna split.  He immediatly pulled over at the nearest ice cream shop and ordered one up for us.  He often goes unrecongized but I thank him for the stabilty he provided to our family.  Also, thank you for making my mother so happy.

Third, my father Ed.  It amazes me that although I have never lived in the same house as my father we are so much a like.  It has been so much fun discovering those similarities over the years.  My dad can always make me laugh.  He is truely an amazing man with the biggest heart.  This past November my father suffered a heart attack.  By the grace of God he survived.  It certainly put a lot of things in prespective for me.  It makes this Father's Day extra special to me because he is here to share it with us.

Pure Sweetness {Marietta Newborn Photographer | Marietta Children Photographer}

Every good and perfect gift is from above.
~James 1:17

I had the honor of photographing a sweet family on Saturday morning.  The P family has been blessed with a beautiful baby girl to join their family of three.  Big brother B was in my daughter's preschool class.  He is hysterical!  I could listen to him talk all day.  B looked at me at one point and said "I am glad there is a camera here because my mommy looks so beautiful" Baby D is precious!  She is the most peaceful baby I have every seen.  I really enjoyed photographing this family.  I appreciate Mrs. P's patience with me - I was having many blonde moments that morning!  Here are a couple of my favorites.

Sneak Peak of the S Family {Marietta Children Photograper}

Then followed that beautiful season... Summer....
Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light; and the landscape
Lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I had another wonderful session in the Marietta Square.  We just could not stay away from the cool water of the fountain.  Actually, Miss W was ready to just jump in and splash around.  As hot as it was that day - I was ready to join her.  We had fun talking about Spiderman and Dora the Explorer.  These two are absolutely precious!  I just had to post a couple!  


Sneak Peak of the A Family {Marietta Children Photographer}

Sometimes being a brother is even better than being a superhero.  
~Marc Brown

I had my first photo session at the Marietta Square.  I tried to photograph my children there once but they weren't having it!  I was happy the A brothers were more willing to participate.   The Marietta Square holds such wonderful memories for me.   It was so much fun watching it through the eyes of a child.  Although it was a little humid we had a great time running around the square.  Here are a couple of my favorites.
