My heart be still...

I have photographed this family now for two years. I photographed little A. when she was a newborn and was amazed at her sweet, easy going temperament. Then I saw her again last year at a year old and was still amazed how sweet and easy going she was. Then this year, well she is just the same sweet, easy going little person she always was. But, sweet and easy going with little A. does not mean she is lacking in the personality department. Nope, she is full of spunk and personality. I always feel so lucky to have my job and after this session, I felt extra lucky. This wonderful family gave me a delicious pound cake for my birthday. How special is that? I have the best clients.

I have a confession to make though. I am indecisive. There I said it! I can not pick favorites when it comes to my sessions. I have a hard time choosing photos to put on the blog because I fall in love them all. And when the family is this extra special, well it is almost impossible. I saw this mom at Target today and promised I would get her sneak peek up. Here it is J. It was so hard to choose. I may have to blog a few more when I edit more favorites.

Yes folks, Emerson is one!

Emerson celebrated her first birthday on Saturday. I am so happy but so sad. It sounds so strange to say, "she is one" when someone asks me her age. This year has flown by. It has been a great one. Because she is my last child, I have really tried to take things slowly and enjoy the little things. I hope I continue to do that this year.

Here are a few photos from her cake smash. None of my other kids have demolished their smash cake like Emerson did. She took smash cake to a whole new level.

Now that I have shared these, you probably want a piece of cake! Yumm....

Here was my first post about her. Funny I posted these photos on the same day. LOL

Relocating...

...but don't fret Athens folk! I will still do sessions here in Athens as often as asked. I love Athens and hope to be here quite frequently.

My family will be moving to Jefferson around November 13. We are excited to move into a new home that will suit our large family more appropriately. While I am excited about the new house, I am NOT excited about the move. The lifting, boxes, cleaning... not fun. I am sure it will be worth it in the end. I look forward to posting photos in the months to come.

Because I have been consumed with the move, I have not had a chance to post a Christmas special. I love Christmas time and it is sneaking up on me QUICKLY! So, if you want to do Christmas photos soon, you are in luck. I am offering a special Christmas session on Saturday, October 31 (morning and early afternoon-I have to collect candy in the evening ;) ) and Sunday, November 1. The sessions will be at the Botanical Gardens here in Athens. Here is what you will receive:
Special price $250

Thirty minute session
10-15 digital proofs in an online gallery for five days
25 double sided cards with envelopes
8x10 storyboard to keep or give as a gift
Four 5x7 prints to give to the grandparents or family
Two 8x10 prints as a little gift for yourself
and a chance to draw a secret present out of Santa's stocking.
(presents may include free Christmas cards, discounts on additional prints, free prints, gift albums, a free session for the new year, all your proofs in print, a 10x20 mounted storyboard, or a big pile of Rudolph poop (ok, I am just kidding), and who knows what other good things Santa will have in his stocking)
Consider this as a one stop shop for all your holiday gifts ;) I will make your gift giving easy.



Here is a sample of the 8x10 storyboard offered in this package:

As always there is fine print:
No outfit changes, unless it is a single subject being photographed
No extended family photographs (I love doing them, but thirty minutes is just not enough time. We can do a regular session though)
Rain date scheduled for November 8
Payment must be made at the time of booking to hold your spot. If payment has not been received within two days of booking the session, it can be given to someone else. (I know I am a meany but slots will be limited)
I am looking forward to seeing you for pictures in November! It will be fun. Call (706-247-3899) or email me trinariggott@gmail.com and we will set a date.

As always when I meet up with this family, we have a good time. Last session we visited Watson's Mill Park and this session we decided to head to downtown Athens. We could not have asked for better weather and I could not have asked for better subjects. The kids were sweet as always and the parents were so much fun. I took way too many pictures which means there will be a lot for you to choose from M. I also had too many favorites and could not share them on the blog so I just randomly chose from those favorites.

And for those who always ask about what to wear for family photos, take a look at the clothing choices in these family photos. I always say to choose a color palate of two or three colors and everyone coordinate clothes from those colors. Everyone is dressed in the same colors but everyone is different. No one "matches" one another but they blend beautifully together. Perfect example of what I am trying to explain.

Weeeee'rrre back!

We are back from our Nickelodeon Hotel vacation and we had a BLAST! If you ever get a chance to visit the Nick Hotel in Orlando, DO IT! There was a little something for everyone. My girls loved the giant slides and my little ones loved the children's area with sprinklers and a mini slide. Here are a few highlights from our trip:

We took the Nickelodeon trip as an early birthday present to my beautiful Emerson who will turn one on October 24. Do you have a child celebrating a birthday in October? If so, I want to give them a present. A free session and a 8x10 print. Just shoot me an email and give me the information. Trinariggott@gmail.com
