I met the Allen Family earlier in the year when I set up a special for Coke’s Chapel Preschool to offer mini sessions for the families. When Karen said she wanted to get the entire family together I knew the best location for us would be the http://www.earthscape-designs.com! The beautiful landscape was showing off fall with vibrant orange and yellows painting the trees. Around every corner there was a place that caught my eye and wanted to take just one more! The best thing about this property is it’s versatility in accommodating different needs in one place. I am so thankful to have exclusive access to this mini botanical garden!
We started with the family sessions until everyone was ready and then stopped to set up the group. We knew we wanted to get a picture with everyone and then a picture with grandparents and grandkids so that was our priority shot! I was worried about getting everyone to look at me because we had some young kids but they did FANTASTIC! No photoshop needed to swap out faces from people looking away for this family! The last family waited so patiently while we took care of the babies first. I forgot to mention that we were battling CRAZY wind and a random cold front so everyone was freezing!
I really have mixed feelings about this session. Natalie was the first baby to graduate from my GKids program! I was lucky enough to meet her at the hospital and again a few days later for her newborn session. Natalie has obviously grown a lot since then and look at her smile! She is not yet walking (lucky Mom and Dad) so I didn’t have to chase her all over the place to get these great smiles! My GKids have the option to join their babies for their 1 year photo and I am glad they did. These are some of my all time favorite family pictures and you can just feel the love.
I love how my job lets me connect with families in a way that makes me feel like I am a part of it, even if it is only for a little while. It makes me sad I won’t get to see her every three months. On the other hand, Natalie is going to be a BIG SISTER so I will get to see her eventually! I can’t wait to see if her new sibling will be just like her 🙂
HAPPY 1ST BIRTHDAY NATALIE!
Bennett did not want to fall asleep in the beginning but as soon as he did we were able to get some great shots! His big brother did such a good job waiting for his turn to take pictures with his brother. This sweet boy was my biggest baby yet!
This session was from the Mommy & Me mini session giveaway. We met at Line Creek Nature Center and had quite the adventures with these girls!
I can tell you that Mom and Dad have so much love for this little boy 🙂
The Sellers Family made it hard for me to narrow down their pictures because there were so many that I loved!
I am so glad I was able to photograph the Tinney family before their big move!
These little ones kept me on my toes for their family session!
The Ashely Family showed up bright and early in the morning and rocked their family pictures!
I had so much fun with the Allen Family who were also celebrating their wedding anniversary!!
