Watch Him Grow

Happy Memorial Day! I hope you are enjoying your long weekend and are able to spend it with family and loved ones. As for me, I'm currently hangin on the beach in lovely Hilton Head, South Carolina.

I've had the pleasure of photographing Charlie every three months since he turned six months old. Check out how this adorable little man has grown!

His parents were the first clients to take advantage of my MINI SESSIONS, which are great way to get professional milestone pictures of your ever-growing children at an awesome rate!

Six Months

Nine Months

One Year  (with older siblings, too...)

Cat's Outta the Bag

Drum roll.......

Clairissa Cooper Photography is moving to Dallas, Texas! 

I don't know exactly when this will happen, as there are a LOT of details to work out. Possibly sometime this summer, but as late as fall. This is why I have not added any extra dates until I have a better grasp on our schedule here in Georgia. We've literally been living in limbo land since March, when we first found out this was a possibility. But after about two months of figuring things out, it looks like it is happening. So sadly, I will have to bid adieu to my wonderful Georgia clients. As I said before, if you are interested in a shoot, I will likely still be working through parts of June. I will post dates as they become available, so please keep checking the blog.

And if you live in the Dallas area and are interested in a shoot, I will let you know when I'm available as soon as we get settled - definitely sometime this year.

Thanks for your support and understanding. This is a big change for our family and a lot of emotions involved. All in all, it's a positive move for us - closer to family and a promotion. Definitely bittersweet as we've grown to love the Atlanta area in our four years here and made so many dear friends.

OH! And I wanted to let you know I have a last second opening for this TUESDAY, the 25th @ 6pm.  Anyone? BOOKED.

Don't be sad. Here is little one-year-old Charlie to help cheer you up.

Schedule / All Booked

Well, that's it, folks! I am all booked up through the end of the month. I may add some dates in June, but need to work a few things out with the schedule before I release those. The good news is that I have been able to postpone closing shop for a bit longer, extending perhaps two weeks in June. The reason I am temporarily closing for business (which I haven't said the reason why on this blog, so don't scroll down looking for the answer. haha), isn't affecting anything yet and so I can be flexible with a bit more work this summer. If you are interested in a photo shoot, go ahead and send me an email or give me a call. There is a chance I may be able to squeeze you in :) But as of right now, I don't have anything available. Check back in a week -- or two.


Let the summer begin!!

Gibson Sneak Peak

There's a first for everything and this happened to be my first photo shoot with a horse! And what a great horse/client he was. Phantom is his name and he happens to reside on one of the most amazing properties I've ever been privy to photograph on. Many more images to come with this black beauty, and also with the gorgeous family that claims him.

One Month Old Adelaide

Why is this baby so beautiful? Maybe it's because she's related to ME. haha. jk. She's definitely got her looks from her gorgeous mother and my handsome cousin, her father.
