This baby boy steals my heart weekly. I had the pleasure of meeting him as a tiny little guy, and I get to see him in his mothers arms in Church weekly. A couple weeks ago, I held him and he nuzzled his head into my neck and I melted. He melts me every time that I see him.
His three sisters are beauties and bundles of sweet energy. He is a lucky little boy.
My dear friend moved here from Argentina. She married last year, and is now expecting her first baby. She has a bundle of boy on the way and I can not wait to meet him. In the meantime we had a blast doing this photo session. She came to my house and we drove together to the local nature preserve. There is a pretty lake area, but my favorite spot is the shoals. The water was freezing so we stayed on the rocks. The lighting was perfect and highlighted this magical time for my friend.
The question of location is always asked during scheduling a session. I have places that I am used to going that are open to the public. Sometimes it’s a private location that I get permission to use. Other times it is my client that knows of a place. This client had a friend with a fabulous backyard. Seriously gorgeous.
This client was so sweet and her choice of props just as sweet. This client asked that her sisters be part of her session. Just beautiful.
When I first moved to the area, I spent weeks just driving around looking for special places to take photos. Basically location scouting for my clients. One day, I drove a pretty good distance from Peachtree City and I stumbled across this old Purina pet food factory. The weeds were high and the metal from the old factory had rust stains. These are two of my favorite things when looking for a spot. (Not that I like the snakes that are sometimes in those long weeds!)
I used this space for just a few clients. I new it would be perfect for a male senior session. It has been a long time since I have photographed there. Last I was there the crew of the Walking Dead had found this spot and were using it.
Often times, parents call to schedule sessions for the senior high school students. They often ask what they should bring if anything. I like to suggest they bring something that identifies who they are as a senior. Whether they play a sport or and instrument, anything. This is a good example of someone who brought great items that represented part of who he is his senior year. His sport, his car, and his jacket.
This was a very fun session. This senior and her mother were fun to work with at the atmosphere was amazing. For this session we went to Serenbee. It is a small community not that far from Peachtree City, and also not that far from Atlanta. It is extremely unique and is made of four “hamlets” as the town calls them. The town feels both rural and urban. It mixes sustainable living with art stunning homes and some well thought our commercial space.
Our session made use of the farm, fields, shops and wooded area.
This session has so many of my favorite photos it was hard to just pick a few to share.
I started this session by working with just the baby boy. He is such a peaceful little guy. The only noises he made were tiny little baby coos. I melted each time I focused on his little details. His sister was equally adorable to work with and a bit more feisty. I think that is evident in one of the black and white photos that I am sharing below. As we set up the shot to capture a pose where a baby rests their chin on their arms, she surprised me by insisting on lifting up her head. I still can’t believe that shot.
I titled this session 20 Fingers and 20 Toes because of big sister. She counted each toe for me as we snapped the photos of her with her siblings.
I came across this location while on one of the golf cart paths here in Peachtree City. My boys and I were heading to t-ball and were winding our way around some new paths. I fell in love as soon as I came upon this location. Three ponds, two bridges and willow trees. I couldn’t wait to meet with my client and try out this new location. When the day came, I was thrilled to meet this really sweet couple. They were up for every idea that I had in mind and this location offered up plenty.
