» Atlanta Area Child, Family, Newborn, and Headshot Photographer

Last year, when I photographed this fabulous foursome, I had no idea that a year later I’d be gearing up to photograph their wedding. And in less than two weeks, that’s exactly what I’ll be doing. They decided to take their kids up to their absolute favorite spot, Barnsley Gardens. And while there, they decided to have their time documented.  And it was simply beautiful.  The backdrop was gorgeous and lovely and warm and inviting.  But the family was my reason for being there.  These guys have so much love for each other and I cannot wait to see them become a family.

As usual, this blog entry is a picture overshare.  If you are familiar with my work then you’ll know it’s not just about perfect photo opps, it’s about being able to feel what my subjects are feeling in that moment. When you scroll through these images in particular, my hope is that you’ll feel the love these people have for one another along with the joy and true spirit of what it means to be a family.

These four were more than I could have hoped for…they were sweet, happy, free, and full of love. The little ones were themselves and trust me, that right there is everything.  Having only known them for a few short minutes, I knew right away that their session would be full of real, honest, and somewhat hysterical moments.  All it took was a few minutes, some light direction, and a little reassurance and these little girls were off to the races.  They never looked back.  And what I saw was a family that absolutely adores one another; sisters that are going to be life-long best friends; and a mom and dad who are so incredibly lucky to have their girls and each other.

Here’s a peak into their family session.  And I’m not going to lie….I’m obsessed.

Heirloom Session Albums | Atlanta Family PhotographerIn our fast paced world, along with gadgets and social media, we often only “scroll” through our photos…on our phones, on Instagram, on Facebook.  We take no time in truly sitting with these images and appreciating them. Instead, we look at them in such a hurried race that 2 seconds later, we’ve forgotten exactly what we had looked at.  Now…remember when you were a kid how you’d pick up your parents’ old photo albums and you would get lost in those images?  How those albums would take you back to an exact moment in time and all of a sudden you’d be filled with these incredible feelings of joy just because you decided to pick up that album and thumb through those heavy, peel back pages.Heirloom Session Albums | Katie Oblinger -Atlanta Family Photographer

It’s because those moments of your past…those cherished moments of your life mean something to you.  They may even mean more to you now than you ever would have thought.  

Your memories deserve more than a dingy phone screen. They deserve to be picked up, held, appreciated and more importantly, shared with your children and their children. These memories are invaluable and beautiful and sentimental.  It’s why my own personal albums are some of my most treasured belongings.  And it’s why I will continue to offer heirloom session albums to all of my clients. Sometimes there is nothing better than to grab a cup of coffee and sit down with these time capsules and relive those precious moments.

One of the questions I get from clients is, “what should we wear?”.  Understandable.  When you’re spending money to have your family photographed, you want everyone to look their best.  So today, instead of sending you to my Pinterest board “What To Wear” , although, really, it’s okay if you actually click the link, I wanted to share my favorite clothes for little girls.

The shop is Emerald August.

And it’s THE BEST.

Here’s the deal…these clothes are adorable and cute and fun. They really are.  But what I love most about them is that they aren’t what you’re going to find at the mall.  They are full of spunk and personality and knowing the designer, they are made with love and a whole lot of heart.  It never fails that when I see Emerald August clothes, I beg Laura, the designer, to make them for women. But for now, little girls will be the lucky ones who get to sport these clothes.  These comfortable and super cool clothes.

Below are some clothes from the Emerald August spring line.* And when you buy from Emerald August, you are shopping local.  And who doesn’t want to support local businesses?

To see more from Emerald August, make sure you follow the line on Instagram and Facebook.
