Good bye for now!

As my sweet Father-in-law pointed out to me yesterday, I haven't updated my blog in quite awhile. I realized some time ago that it no longer made a whole lot of sense to have a website, a blog and a Facebook page. Most, if not all of my clients are on Facebook and frankly, it's much easier to share photos on Facebook than to upload them to this here blog anyway. Plus, it really helps me get exposure for my business when people tag themselves and share my pictures, etc. (Now Facebook has it's downsides for photographers as well, but that's a whole other discussion).
So dear friends, until further notice, I'd encourage you to Like and Follow my Kara Johnson Photography Facebook page.

Thanks for checking in! - Kara

I leave you with my favorite image of this season. Noah just couldn't quite figure out which smile would be most suitable....

Atticus is one!

This sweet boy just turned one! I don't think he could be any sweeter. You may remember his newborn photos from last year or even his mother's maternity photos. He's come a long way since then! Looking forward to continuing to watch this little man grow!

Welcome Baby Kellen!

This sweet family has made several appearances over the years on my blog! See here and here to see how much Kylie has grown!  I'm so grateful to have such wonderful clients and it is such an honor to be able to watch their families grow and document those wonderful times. The Johnsons have a new baby boy and boy is he handsome! So much hair! I hope you enjoy - I sure enjoyed taking them!

Baby Micah!

This little guy came into the world right near Father's Day! What a great gift! He was so sweet and calm and didn't fuss at all!

As you may have seen from my last post (did you? If not, go back and take a look-see!), I was recently in North Carolina for a family photo shoot. It happened to take place on the very same day that Lazy Turtle Farm had its annual Open Barn Day. I'm not sure if there is a photographer out there that can resist taking the lure of a fuzzy goat face but goats plus kids is simply impossible to resist.

Carter Family Photos

These sweet people are some of my absolute FAVORITE people in the entire world. I feel so lucky that I got to take family portraits with just a few of their many amazing family members.  Looking forward to doing this again in several years and seeing how everyone has changed!

Noah is 2!

Well, he's at it again. Noah is now 2 years old and just full of energy and overall adorableness. You may remember him from back in December . I can't believe how much he has grown since just a few months ago! 

Noah loves this rabbit from the neighbor's house across the street! I love this pictures because Noah and the rabbit seem to be looking in the same direction!

Pet Portraits: Pumpkin & Linus

Last weekend was a VERY busy one! One of the really fun things I got to do was to take some pet portraits! I'd like to introduce you to Linus (all white) and Pumpkin (white & brown)! They're both rescue dogs and are just hilarious little guys. I think it's safe to say they're well-loved too - their mama's never stop petting them!

Clark Howard Event with Atlanta Habitat for Humanity

For those of you that don't know me personally (Really? Email me! I bet we'd get along great!), I am here to confess that I am a giant nerd. Not nerd in the traditional pocket protector, high-water pants kind of way. More like in the "OH MY GOSH CAN I REALLY MEET LOCAL CELEBRITIES CLARK AND LANE HOWARD??! I AM SO EXCITED!" kind of way. And okay, I also really like original Star Trek, Next Generation and various sci-fi/fantasy/zombie things. So when I had the opportunity to photograph Atlanta Habitat for Humanity's Clark Howard Society Event, I was ecstatic. Clark and Lane are amazing supporters of Atlanta Habitat and so knowledgeable and passionate about utilizing Habitat to make a permanent and significant difference in communities. And they're super down-to-earth. Which is why I almost asked if I could take a photo with the two of them, but then chickened out at the last minute. Oh well, maybe next time. Until then, enjoy this photos from the Clark Howard Society meeting!

Clark speaks to the "Clark Howard Society" donors, board members, and staff. 

Clark invites homeowner Betty to speak to the group.
