A Smashing 1st Birthday: Savannah Children and Family Photography

Reid-1-year-5

As a photographer, it is always an honor for me to be asked to capture special milestones in one’s life. Photographing Reid’s 1-year smash-cake session was especially meaningful for me since he was the subject for my first newborn session. It is still hard for me to believe that it has been a year since I first photographed him, just days after arriving home from the hospital. I have had the opportunity to photograph him every 3 months since, and it has been amazing to watch him grow. After so many photo sessions, he is becoming an old pro, and while he may be a little more difficult to keep up with now that he is walking, every session has been fun and unique. I look forward to continuing to watch him grow.

Happy 1st birthday Reid!

Sunshine on a Cloudy Day: Sarita & Cornelius, Savannah Engagement Photography

This past Sunday, I photographed the second of my blog contest winners, Sarita and Cornelius, along with their 6-month-old son Isaiah. Isaiah was born prematurely at 28 weeks so he and Mom had to spend 72 days in the hospital. Cornelius proposed on Christmas day, adding a spark of joy to what had been a difficult time.  We met in Emmet Park and instantly connected because my lovely wife and Sarita shared the same college major at Georgia Southern University: Child and Family Development.

Sarita was a ball of personality and it only took her a couple of minutes before she had Cornelius relaxed and smiling. They complemented each other very well and it was a joy to watch the family interact. After a few photos of the couple along Factors Walk, sweet little Isaiah got into the fun for his first photo shoot.

Thank you, Sarita, Cornelius and Isaiah for adding a ray of sunshine to an otherwise cloudy afternoon.

Stephanie & Seth: Savannah Engagement and Wedding Photography

Stephanie & Seth-39

This past weekend I photographed the first of my blog contest winners, Stephanie and Seth.  Much like my wife, Rebecca and I, Stephanie and Seth met through an online dating site.  Seth proposed on February 9 of this year (my birthday! How cool is that!). Stephanie is a hard working elementary school teacher and Seth is currently enrolled in college classes so they are planning their wedding on a fairly tight budget. I’m so glad I was able to put a big smile on Stephanie’s face and help her and Seth capture an image perfect for their Save the Date.
