Extended Family Session – Garrard Landing Park | Atlanta Family Photographer

At the head of this extended family is the most kind, warm-hearted man. His daughter wanted to give him a family photo session with his kids and grand babies, so that’s just what we did. It was absolutely freezing the morning we shot these, but they did a great job snuggling up, keeping warm, and showing off some genuine smiles. I just love the photos we got of Greg and his three precious grandchildren, and I hope they are something he will cherish forever.

When Nancy contacted me about a session for the fall, she wanted to get some photos of her little family before they welcome their next addition, a baby boy, in a couple months. I love that she wanted to document their family as it is before life changes, and I had the best time getting to know them while we wandered around Lenox Park. It was a cloudy, cool day and the park was mostly deserted, which was a nice surprise. Their daughter was the absolute cutest and was such a ham for the camera — any photographer’s dream. Best wishes to the S family on their next adventure!

I photographed these two families earlier in the fall… back when the weather was still quite warm and the trees at my favorite in-town park were green. 🙂 I love the sun flare sneaking into the side of the first photo of Jackie and her family, and I also absolutely adored the way she styled them for their photos… classic with a fun little pop of red here and there for the holidays. And that Esther’s cutie pie smile is just too much!

Speaking of cutie pies, Miss Evie (in our second set of photos below) was nothing but smiles for me the entire session, and I couldn’t have loved it more. I hadn’t seen her since her newborn session a couple years prior, so it was really fun to see her parents again and get to know her a bit as a toddler. What a smart, joyous little girl she is! I so enjoyed these two sessions, and it was a great way to kick off the busy season.

I adore this entire extended family so darn much! Renee and Brian are close friends of ours, and they’ve asked me to do an extended family session with Renee’s sister and her kiddos, as well as the grandparents, for going on 5 years now. This is always one of my favorite sessions of the season. With six kids of varying ages (including a set of twins), it’s never a boring experience, but I really think that the more kids there are, the better behaved they are! These cousins are happy, sweet, and funny, and the older girls always have suggestions for poses. 🙂 I’m just sad that we were missing Renee’s sister this year due to an illness… but we certainly got some frame-worthy shots of her three babies in her absence. Enjoy some favorites from this extended family session!

Sadie Kate is 4! – NE Atlanta | Atlanta Family Photographer

Fall sessions are complete, so now it’s time to do some catching up on the blog! I have been photographing these friends and their darling blue-eyed daughter since she was 3 months old. It’s hard to believe Sadie Kate is now four! She’s such a sweet, smart kid, and I can never get enough of those beautiful blonde curls when I see her. And how sweet is that shot of her holding onto daddy, looking over his shoulder? These are the kid of images that I think parents will look back on so fondly when their little ones are grown.
