A Girl & Her Stuffies | Lifestyle Photographer in the Metro Atlanta Area

This is a girl after my own 10 year old heart. Not only do I secretly wish I had a room with a reading nook like she does, I also had a corner full of stuffed animals in my room when I was growing up. (Shhhh…. don’t tell any future boyfriends, but I still have a bin full in my attic). But I definitely never had as many as Katie does!

I’ve known Katie AKA Katie Bug, her whole life (scroll to the bottom of the gallery for proof) because her Mom and I have been BFF’s since we were 22 and first moved to Atlanta. So basically just a few years ago ;) It’s been so fun seeing Katie & her brother grow up into funny, smart little humans. As I told her Mom, Katie is like a little RAINBOW!! She even had a detailed drawing of her stuffed animals! To state the obvious, this was a fun shoot and I just love showing off her red hair & freckles!

This shoot was partially inspired by an Atlanta photographer I love, Kate T. Parker. She has a book out called Strong is the New Pretty and the description describes Katie Bug perfectly!

Girls being fearless. Girls being silly. Girls being wild, stubborn, and proud. Girls whose faces are smeared with dirt and lit up with joy. So simple and yet so powerful, Strong Is the New Pretty celebrates, through more than 175 memorable photographs, the strength and spirit of girls being 100% themselves
