Winn Park Mini Session Highlights | Atlanta Family Photographer

It was a brisk fall morning for my mini sessions in Midtown, but you can’t beat beautiful lighting (just check out the sun streaming through the trees toward the end of this post!), lush greenery, the most darling families… and a chihuahua in a sweater. I love seeing my clients return year after year for these fun little sessions — and then getting to see my images on their holiday cards that are sent out to loved ones. We had a lot of fun that morning, and it was hard to narrow down just a few favorites from each family’s session to share, but here they are!




Vinings Polo Fields Session | Atlanta Family Photographer

Beautiful morning light, sweet sisters, and friendly horses who wanted to join us for some photos… what a perfect session. What’s even more fun is that when we arrived at the polo fields, I realized that big sister used to be in my daughter’s little gym class. I loved getting to meet her family and capturing her adorable little smiles, which were plentiful. These horses came over to the fence just as we were finishing up, and the girls were giddy, if not a little timid, about meeting them, and I love the shots we got of them together. I just wish we’d had some carrots!

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.

Lenox Park Family Session | Atlanta Family Photographer

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!

NW Atlanta Session Highlights | Atlanta Family Photographer

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.
