Jamie Katz Photography

You may have noticed {if you visit my actual blog versus reading via e-mail or Google Reader} that I recently added a few companies to my side bar. These are my LOVELY sponsors and I'd like to take a moment to introduce you!  FIRST... the lovely and talented Jamie Katz.

You should recognize her name from all the fantastic pictures of Keelin I love to share. Jamie was recommended to us by a friend and coworker of Z's. She was looking to add some newborn photos to her portfolio and we happened to have a fresh newborn, right out of the cooker! It was FANTASTIC working with her and, being a mother herself, she definitely put me at ease during the photoshoot with her effortless handling of my tiny little girl. Even though Keelin both peed and pooped on some of her fabric backdrops, we were welcomed back for 3 month photos as well! And you'll be seeing plenty more of her work here since we'll be doing Keelin's 6, 9, and 12 month photos with her as well! She's super fun and super fantastic and if you're looking for a photographer for your little ones, I HIGHLY recommend her! I stole some of her "about me" facts from her website and thought it would be nice to share a little more about the lady behind the lens:

Jamie is an Alabama born traveler, having lived in 6 states and over 20 cities during her lifetime! She has always looked for ways to cultivate her passion for all things artistic. Be it music, acting, dance, writing, or photography, there is no denying she is a TRUE artist! Her love of photography began as a teenager with the discovery of Ansel Adams and then blossomed into a passion of portraiture after her first daughter was born... nothing like the beautiful eyes of a child to awaken a passion and begin a journey of learning to capture those precious moments...properly. Her training lies in educators throughout Atlanta, friends and mentors throughout the US, and the day by day experiences of her own little ones and artists she is humbled to capture.

Jamie specializes in babies, children, families {pets included} and actor headshots.

And now, to show off her skills, a special peek at her latest session with Keelin! I'm so in love with these pictures I can hardly stand it!
