Allen Extended Family Session | Jenn Gervais Photography | Newnan, Sharpsburg, Peachtree City, GA

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! 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 🙂
