Lifestyle Blog Photographer Goals for 2019 Marietta ~ Cobb County ~Atlanta ~ Georgia

Lifestyle Blog Photographer Goals for 2019

Marietta ~ Cobb County ~Atlanta ~ Georgia

I’m a photographer based in Marietta, Ga which is location in the suburb of Atlanta.  I’m also a mother and a wife which is why I chose photography as my second career.  It gives me flexibility to be at home with my daughter, allows me to bring in some extra money and gives me something for my creative outlet.  It has grown to be one of the top job choices for mothers.  There are a lot of photographers in this Cobb County area to choose from.  2018 was a great year of growing my business and learning new techniques.


I ended 2018 by loading up on lots of paid courses to continue to grow in my love of photography.  Not only do I want to be a better professional for my clients I also want to be better at taking everyday real life photos of my daughter.  I started to take a few more toward the end of 2018 and I will share them with you here.

This photo was taken at the end of a model session for my upcoming summer #gonefishingmini. It worked out that my daughter was able to come to that promo session. Garrard Landing Park is one of my favorite locations. That golden sun is just gorgeous. This was just a quick fun shot.


Goals for 2019

Get better in low light uncomfortable situations.

Learn how to create beauty in the dramatic low light.

Master capturing the true candid moments and make them look good.

Make my shot in camera as perfect as possible to spend less time in post processing.

Double my sessions.

This was taken for my daughter’s 3 year session. Her dress was a little too long so she was slightly tripping for most of the photos 🙁 It was a quick the light is perfect in the front yard little to no prep. Quick change and hair bow. It was slightly chilly so we were only outside for about 10 minutes at the most.

This was taken the same day at the one above. I was practicing my winterizing technique in post processing. Since we get little snow here in the south. I am hoping to get some this year and that she will actually show a little interest and not cry like last year.

Finished gingerbread house with a little purple edit since it is my daughter’s current favorite color.
