Kenley Mae [Newborn]

I got the fun of photographing little Kenley at 15 days and she was a dream. She stayed awake for a bit but even awake she was just so calm. Her mom, Tori, is the same way and you would never think she was a first time mom. I met Tori through First Baptist Church […]

So very sweet! Congratulations and blessings to you!

[…] 12 days old when I shot these images at his home. His big sister Kenley (see her newborn session here) is now 2 and was pretty gentle with her new brother. Mammaw (it’s a southern […]

Simone Turns Two [and other random stuff]

Two two-year olds three weeks apart — Jayden and Simone — keep our lives in awe of all the new things two year olds learn. They are little sponges and it’s so fun to watch. Simone had a little family/friend birthday party the end of April with a jump house, piñata, gifts, and of course oozy gooey […]

Mary those pictures are just wonderful. I know I keep saying this
but you are so lucky to have such a great family. You have such great quality time with you grandchildren and adult children. Enjoy those babies because before you know it they will be in high school and all this fun time (Which I hope is a lot) will be just wonderful memories.

Cody Myers - May 23, 2014 - 8:05 AM

Mary beautiful pictures. I really love the last one!!!

Fairly Candid - May 23, 2014 - 10:52 AM

Tracy, what a sweet comment and it reminds me to not complain about the small stuff. These times are short just as you say.

Fairly Candid - May 23, 2014 - 10:54 AM

There’s actually quite a funny story about the last one and it’s rare that we have a picture of just the big kids with us. I love it too! Thanks Cody.

Linda - May 23, 2014 - 11:04 AM

Awesome as always. Blessed kids and grandkids to have such a talented grandma.

Megan - May 23, 2014 - 2:53 PM

How did we make such adorable kids?!?!? Sweet cheeks, pouty lips, hippy smiles and love abounds. Of course there’s sass, tears, tempers and yelling…but who wants to cover that? Not me!

Loved every single picture. Love you!

Beth - June 8, 2014 - 11:16 PM

TWO? It seems like she was just born! That is way toooo fast. Everyone looks good and as always, wonderful pics!

Jayden Turns Two

April and May have been busy months so I’m definitely behind in spending time on my blog, but I do see blue skies ahead now that the house selections are all finalized. Speaking of blue, these kids of mine makes me feel anything but in these happy colors they are wearing (sounds like a fashion show runway […]

Beautiful family! Love the one of Jayden running and the first pic of MJ. And then of course, the full family pictures…one truly happy family!

Fairly Candid - May 13, 2014 - 7:08 AM

Sweet comments from a sweet family as well. Glad you are doing well Angela.

Becky Hamilton - May 13, 2014 - 9:27 AM

These pictures make me smile. Fun family!

Kathy G - May 13, 2014 - 12:01 PM

Thanks for the smile of the day. Those boys sure do have personality!

Linda - May 13, 2014 - 12:41 PM

It was fun to see those special little boys on Friday and experience their little personalities first hand–even if Angie and I didn’t ever get to finish a conversation. That was part of the fun of it! Kind of like how it is when we go out with our own grandchildren.

Megan - May 13, 2014 - 2:34 PM

Seriously, those two boys just keep getting cuter and handsomer every day. That last pic of Jayden is killing me as I am envisioning him saying “ooooh” in that sweet deep voice.

Well done, Gramma. You know how to make those kids smile the biggest!!!

Tony [2014 Senior]

Tony is a senior at Frank Church School and quite the funny guy. He had me laughing and shaking my head (as in “no I won’t take that picture!”). He’s the youngest of five siblings so he’s had to learn to defend himself and humor is always the best medicine, right? His mom says he loves […]

Fairly Candid - May 13, 2014 - 7:09 AM

Proud momma I see. Just as it should be. 🙂 It was my fun to get to do it for you Gayla.

Fairly Candid - May 13, 2014 - 7:12 AM

What a nice surprise to have your comment Becky. Thank you.

Isaac Corban [Newborn]

What could be more appropriate for Mother’s Day weekend than to have a new post with a new baby! Congratulations to Tim and Liz Grissom on the birth of their third child, Isaac Corban, born April 12 and photographed April 29 at 17 days old. He weighed 7.3 lbs at birth and was 20″ long […]
