Favorites from 2019

As we are about to welcome in a new year, and a new decade, I wanted to thank each and every one of my clients for being a part of my life, and allowing me to help create memories for you in your lives. I am also deeply indebted to the wonderful community of photographer friends from NAPCP and Click that I have come to know, and who’ve helped me to grow. Below are my favorite images, as well as awards, recognition and features from the past year.

This past year marked my fourth official year in business. In addition to continuing to grow my family business, I started experimenting with underwater photography, and received an honorable mention at the NAPCP Inspired Gallery event for one of my favorites this summer of my daughter.

Among the top features this year, Expertise named Tamara Gonzalez Photography as one of the Best 19 Family Photographers in Atlanta. Other online Instagram mentions were from fantastic publications: The Bloom Forum, Run Wild My Child and Underwater Kids. And dear to my heart, my article on Giving the Gift of Portraiture was published in the National Association of Child Photographer’s June edition of Inspired Magazine.

Thank you for helping me create these memories in your lives!

This year, I was finally able to make time to give portraits to mothers and their daughters at My Sister’s House, an Atlanta homeless shelter. This article in Inspired Magazine details the experience, and how other photographers can do the same in their communities.

And here is a glimpse at some of my favorite personal portraits from the year:

Festive Family Studio Session

Despite the cold weather, it is still possible to get beautiful, festive family portraits in the studio! I first met this family at the beginning of the year to document their newest addition to the family, baby Scarlet. Now that she is nearly nine months old, they wanted updated portraits for the holidays. Of course, we took plenty of time for their oldest boy to have fun playing with cars and train tracks.

I hope you have a wonderful holiday! Enjoy!

Xoxo, Tamara

The Christmas Tree Farm 2019| Atlanta Family Photographer

This year’s Christmas Tree Farm sessions were such a blast! It was perfectly chilly, and was the best way to kick off the holiday season. We say it every year: what could be better to get you in the holiday spirit then to snuggle up with family, hot cocoa and loads of holiday cookies? Not much in our opinion 🙂

Thank you again to the wonderful folks at Thompson’s Christmas Tree Farm for hosting our annual event. Their warm hospitality always makes everyone feel right at home out on their beautiful farm. The cool vintage blue truck was back, complete with cozy blankets and Christmas decor. Each year, these sessions just get better and better.

Enjoy these highlights from our third annual Christmas Tree Farm sessions!

Xoxo, Tamara

Fall Family Day 2019

Each fall I host a day for fall family mini sessions. It’s the perfect time to get a quick update for holiday cards, or for your wall gallery.

This year, all but one family I saw was a family I had captured before. We enjoyed a beautiful, and crisp, fall morning at Whittier Mill Park on the west side of Atlanta. The leaves were the perfect color for fall portraits! I cannot express the gratitude I have to each and every one of these families for entrusting me with their family portraits. Enjoy! Xoxo, Tamara

Fun-Filled Family Session at Piedmont Park | Atlanta Family Photographer

I’ve known this family for a few years now and just adore them. Their two children are so sweet – when we were finished with our session, the boy asked if I could join them for dinner and the little girl gave me the biggest hug :).

The best part of family sessions is the time we have to play, and at this age playing is where it’s at. I always tell my parents to relax and let the kids play and let me guide them during their session. This fun-filled session captures just that and all the love they give their children. Thank you for having me capture you again!

Xoxo, Tamara
