Capturing Memories...for You!

Since I was a teenager, I have been the one with the camera. When someone is putting together a slideshow for their wedding, graduation, or even when a family member passes, they come to me for recent pictures. This has always been an honor for me because my goal when taking pictures is to capture life as it is to remember later.

This is my sister and her family. I went over to visit one day and wanted to capture the beautiful chaos of her life. I know that time passes quickly, and soon enough the memories of life as a toddler mom will start to fade. In some ways the situation wasn't ideal, my brother-in-law was working a weird shift and had just gotten home, my sister was heading out to get groceries, the kids were all full of post-breakfast energy vying for daddy's attention...

And we won't even mention granddaddy coming for a visit.

On the other hand, this is regular life at her house: unplanned and full of surprises!

These unposed moments bring smiles to the faces of those who have spent time with kids-especially active ones like these!  

This cute sharing moment ended in juice spilled all over the floor.

I hope you enjoyed that little sneak peek! This whole time I've been gathering my nerve for some news that may be of interest to you! I am now booking family lifestyle sessions for 2017! If you're in the Jonesboro or surrounding area of Georgia I would love to discuss with you what packages I offer. Sessions start at $150 and I'm so excited to bring you beautiful photographs you will cherish for years to come. Contact me HERE (hello[at]elisabetharona.com) if you're ready to get more info or grab your slot. If that's not up your alley and you just want to be friends forever or be a part of my crazy life, follow me on Instagram (@elisabetharona) or even sign up for a monthly letter from me HERE.

Oh, and in case you didn't notice, I changed the blog. Same place, different address! What do you think?

Until next time,

Starting the shop up...Again

So I have added a couple things to my shop! I read a quote in a book that said "Don't wait until everything is perfect to start, just start!" It's really hard for me, and without even realizing it, I've been struggling with that for a long time. It tempers my creativity so much when I start worrying what people will think, and how silly the shop will look with only a few things (who am I kidding, it looks sillier empty.) I've spent too much time paying attention to others and what they're capable of, and downplaying what I can do, that I crippled myself! Ugh, but enough focus on that. Here are some of the recent pictures, I'm gonna kinda let them stand alone and hope you come visit my shop!
