The Mickle Family 2017 | Atlanta Family Photographer

Photographers, do you have those repeat a.k.a. “loyal” clients that you just LOVE because you know that every time they hit you up for a photo session, it is going to be a ton of fun? Don’t you just love clients like that?? Kathy Mickle and her beautiful family are THOSE clients! Every year Kathy hits me up for a photo session of some kind and I am so very grateful for her loyalty with all things TRP. Clients like Kathy are such a blessing.

So Kathy had a cool idea to do a Father’s Day photo session. Why did I love this idea so much? Well, for one – my ladies ALWAYS hit me up for Mother’s Day photo sessions but rarely do I get a request for photos for a father for Father’s Day. I loved this idea! Another reason why I loved Kathy’s idea was because she has the most beautiful blended family ever and she wanted to include EVERYBODY in these family photos. EVERYBODY. This meant that Kathy and her husband along with her ex-husband and ALL of their kids were coming together for a family photo. Now how cool is that?? In a crazy world where some “immediate” family members don’t even speak to each other or get along, here you have a BLENDED family of parents and children that love and respect each other as if they were the best of friends. A modern day Brady Brunch and so beautiful to witness.

We met up at a lovely park this past summer and made this thang happen! Of course EVERYONE showed up looking gorgeous, since they are such a good-looking family. I was not surprised. LOL. I was actually amazed at how Kathy planned this enire photo session and was able to reel everyone in at the same time on the same day with all of the family members. Kathy girl, you did that! Whew! AND we all know how it can be with kids…LOL. But the kids were all smiling and joyful and such a pleasure to work with once again.

Kathy, you keep choosing TRP and for that I am bursting with gratitude. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Thank you for stopping by my blog!

Estabon for The Film Inspired Project© | Atlanta Photographer

So let’s be clear on something. I will neer brag on myself as a photographer. Nope. I won’t do it. I am beyond grateful to do what I love and I will forever walk in humility when it comes to photography and my business. HOWEVER…LOL. I have ZERO problem bragging on the GORGEOUS and TALENTED models that I have the opportunity to work with. Oh, no problem at all. I have met some super cool models on my photography journey and this one here?? Whew!! One of my ABSOLUTE fave models, like ever!!! I just love me some Estabon.

I first met this handsome face on the set of a magazine shoot I did last year. I planned this shoot with some other vendors and though we did the initial planning together, the event planner chose the models. When Estabon walked in (all of the other models had arrived, this hottie was”fashionably late”…LOL.) my jaw just dropped. He was one of the most handsome, coolest, swaggiest (Is that even a word?) men I had ever seen. He had this beautiful skin, this gorgeous face with the most perfect structure and then HIS HAIR!!! Whew!! He had Bruno Mars styled hair at the time!! I think it’s safe to say that all of us ladies on set had to sit down and catch our breath. Estabon was HOT!!!

We had such an awesome shoot that day. And I have to be honest, my camera just gravitated towards Estabon because he just has “that thing”…that star quality…that effortless swag. He just knew EXACTLY what to do when the camera was on him and I could not stop shooting him!! LOL. (Quick tip for the models: If you are ever working with a group of models, make sure that YOU are the one that the photographer is drawn to. THIS is how you stand out in a group of models.) Estabon did just that. He is a photographer’s DREAM!! So after we had an amazing shoot that day I just knew that I had to work with him again. I just had to.

Then I began my urban photography project, The Film Inspired Project©. Who else to help me make this project everything I envisioned it to be and more? Estabon!! So I hit him up, we made plans and we rocked.it.out. I was so, so happy to be working with him again and believe me, he did not disappoint. Everything from his outfits, his hair, his swag…100% on point. He is just so gorgeous and so easy to shoot, I literally did not want to stop shooting…LOL!! He gave me everything I needed and we made some cool things happen that day.

Estabon, you already know how I adore you as a person and respect you as a model. You.totally.rock. I cannot wait to work with you yet again.

The photo below is definitely one of my FAVE photos of the year! Estabon is such a talented model and he understands “movement” when modeling very well. Top.notch.model. Love him! 

I hope you lovely people are enjoying your Tuesday!!

Jerry and Toni | Atlanta Photographer

I just LOVE “love”. I just do. That’s why earlier this year, I had a Valentine’s Day photo session giveaway. The contest was open to couples and it was super easy to enter. All they had to do was make sure they were following me on all of my social media platforms and comment with their love story as well as why they should be chosen as the winning couple. Boy did I enjoy reading those comments!! So many amazing love stories – it was so hard to choose the winning couple!

But Jerry and Toni’s love story was the one that really tugged at my heartstrings. You can read Toni’s full comment with their love story here in the comment section. They have been married for 19 years, guys! What a blessing! They had also tried before to schedule an anniversary photo session with a professional photographer but it just didn’t work out. The weather did not cooperate and then there were conflicting schedules so it was hard to get another session on the books. *Sigh* Poor Jerry and Toni. BUT GOD!! When Tangie Renee Photography came through with the Valentine’s Day photo session giveaway, Toni was ON IT!! And she won!! Yay!!

What I love about Jerry and Toni’s love story is that in her own words: “…it was as if cupid came down from the heavens and shot an arrow straight from my heart to his.” (Excuse me while I go grab an entire box of tissues because that sentence alone has me near tears…LOVE IT!) Toni states she just knew Jerry was “the one”. She stated that when she met him, she just couldn’t take her eyes off of him!! Toni was so sure that Jerry was “the one,” she wrote him a letter to leave on his car one morning after a night when they had all hung out with mutual friends. Later that evening, they ran into each other again and Jerry asked her on a date and the rest is history. They have been inseparable ever since. (Are you crying yet?? LOL.)

Jerry and Toni, it was such a pleasure working with you two and capturing your sweet love. It was quite evident during the photo session that you two are truly, madly and deeply in love…still. I am so grateful that I was able to bless you with the professional photos that you have desired for quite some time now. I hope you love them as much as I do.

I just love how he looks at her!!

Are you and your love ready for your anniversary session? Email me at TangieReneePhotos@gmail.com and let’s get ya booked!

Happy Tuesday!!

The Dion Family | Atlanta Family Photographer

Where do I even begin with this gorgeous girl and her family? There are so many wonderful things I could say about Shona. I actually met her at our hair salon years ago but we didn’t connect, I just played with her sweet baby boy Ayden while she got her hair done and that was that. Then a few years later I recognized her at our gym and I could not remember where I knew her from. Then it dawned on me! She was the nice girl from the hair salon with that gorgeous baby boy! So we connected again at the gym and we have been going strong ever since.

I first had an AMAZING maternity session with Shona that we were blessed to have PUBLISHED in a really nice lifestyle publication that you can view here. Those photos were absolutely stunning, Shona slayed even during her pregnancy. She looked like a goddess. After that, I somehow stumbled upon her make-up skills and the next thing you know – she became THE GO-TO make-up artist for all things Tangie Renee Photography. My clients and I simply adore Shona and she delivers every.single.time with a completely flawless face for my ladies. I could not be more pleased to have her on my team. (Ladies, PLEASE hit her up for all of your make-up needs. Her info will be listed below!)

So since we work together all the time now, you know I had to go ahead and bless my girl with some family photos. Shona added baby London to her family last summer so she was ready for some cool updated family photos. The family showed up looking soooo lovely; I just loved their color coordination. Hubby Bryan looked like a model, Shona looked like a stunning fitness model and the kids looked like Baby GAP models…LOL. What can I say? This is one GOOD-LOOKING family and I loved every bit of our time together.

Can we just have a moment of silence for all the slay Shona brought just about 9 months after having Baby London?!

Ayden stole my heart years ago when I first met him. I’ve been loving him to pieces ever since. Be still my heart…

Book Shona for your next make-up application!
