A Family of Love and Laughter

The day was absolutely beautiful at Vines Garden Park, I love shooting at this location because it gives variety!  You can never go wrong with this location.

When you’re given a family that shows Love, Laughter and how to embrace the moments they have together, it makes it very hard for me to stop shooting!  I’m grateful they allowed me into their lives, to see how they have fun as a family.

Enjoy the Love and Laughter of this family!

 

 

Meet the Smith Family!

What a delight it was to capture the Smith family for their holiday family portraits.  Agnes Scott College was the perfect spot for this shoot, a beautiful scenery for an amazingly beautiful family!

 

Tiffany and Tray are getting married!

The love between two people being in the moment, shows with Tiffany and Tray! During this time of the year in Atlanta you really can’t be sure what the weather will be like.

The morning started being just a tad bit chilly, but soon warmed up once we got to moving around and embracing the moment.  Well honestly, Tiffany probably warmed up sooner the I…she had the warm arms of Tray to keep her warm.  Don’t you just love Love!

I’m so excited they’ve chosen me to be apart of their special day in April.

Family Love

Capturing big families are always fun for me.  I love seeing how they all come together during the holiday season showing love and appreciation for each other.

Take a look at this beautiful family.

Berkeley Hills Country Club: Mr. Kwesi & Mrs. Orion Cudjoe-Chow

Arriving at Berkeley Hills Country Club I could feel that fall was just around the corner, and Love was in the air.  The wind was blowing and the temperature was just right for a outdoor wedding.  it’s amazing what little time is needed in order to stop, breath and relax. I can see why the Kwesi and Orion chose this Beautiful Country Club.

Kwesi walked into the ballroom being escorted by his father, not knowing what his beautiful bride looked like from under the mask he was wearing. Orion smiled and laughed, and when they were finally close to each other Kwesi asked…can I touch her?

The first Touch!
The first Touch!

They touched each other and it was like they didn’t want to let each other go. The both of them complimented each other on how good they smelled. These moments always seem to be my favorite…because I see and feel when they’ve started to embrace the moment they’ve been waiting for.

I love that Orion and Kwesi decided to celebrate their #10yearweddinganniversery by showing their continued love for each other with family and friends.

Adrian and Andrew’s Easter Portraits

What a beautiful day it turned out to be.  I haven’t been able to shoot for a while due to the bad weather we’ve had.

Miss. Adrian and the handsome Andrew, were definitely a joy to capture today, Andrew was full of energy and loved watching the many dogs that were at the park.

I hope you enjoy viewing these images as much as I did capturing them.

Make it Happen!

So often we pass up opportunities to leave the next generation a portrait of knowing or wanting to know who we are.

How often have you heard family members say you resemble someone in the family that you’ve never seen?  Maybe it’s your eyes, nose or that little dimple you have on your chin. But the only problem is, there’s no picture…so you’ll continue to hear the stories and never see an image.

Here’s a few suggestions to help you get that photo shoot checked off your to do list this year.

-With New Year resolutions in full effect, reward yourself with a photo shoot when you reach a particular goal.

-Book a session for when you know family members will be in town for Family Reunions, Mothers Day, Easter or any other holiday.

-If your on a tight budget, check out Living Social or Groupon…some of my favorite clients are those who purchased from these two companies.

-If you’re not sure what photography company to use…CHOOSE ME! 😉 Or ask close friends, family or coworkers for recommendations.

Whatever your reasons, let 2015 be the year to make it happen.

I’ll leave you with this quote from a recent client:

“Mom you should take a picture by yourself, if something happens to you at least we’ll have a recent picture to use”.

A look back at 2014

Show your support!

Hello Everyone!

Most of you know that I was fortunate to raise money to participate in the 3day breast cancer walk last year, here in Atlanta.  What an amazing experience!

Though I’m not a walker this year, I’m honored to say I’ll have a cheering station this year to support and encourage the wonderful 2014 3day walkers.   I know first hand what it feels like to have those wonderful people tell you how proud they are of you for making a difference…to see all the encouraging signs and hear some of the best music! We danced, laughed,cried and celebrated our accomplishments everyday . Those were 3 of the best days ever!

If you’re  interested in helping me uplift and celebrate the 2014 3day walkers on October 18th. Please contact me for more information at tracygoberphotography@gmail.com or leave a comment for more information.

All are welcome!

Here are some of my favorites from my collection! The video is from the opening ceremony, I hope you will take the time to watch it.
