A January Sunset Family Session {Atlanta Photographer}

Ah, a sunset family session …is there any better kind? This is my sweet friend and her family and they were troopers to be up for a sunset session in January. When we met there were still patches of snow on the ground! This winter has been so crazy in Atlanta – to have had snow multiple times by mid-January is far from our norm. But luckily the roads cleared up for us in time for our family photo session and this fun foursome made the most of it despite it being a little bit chilly! I always have a blanket with me for families to sit on and this time it did double duty warming up the girls too. When we met I had just wrapped up an amazing course with Elena Blair – you can see some of her work here and I was feeling inspired and ready to put the gorgeous golden light we had to use.

I love this location in Roswell because it offers woods, fields, tall grasses, hills, and wide open spaces. So many options and spots to visit and we hit them all in under an hour! I regularly shoot here for this very reason – this fall family session was at this spot as well, it looks a bit different with the fall foliage but it’s truly gorgeous year round. These two sisters are so adorable and they told jokes that made me laugh so hard I had a hard time shooting! I could really feel their family’s love and closeness and laid-back energy. I hope you enjoy these images as much as I enjoyed creating them!

Oh and I am participating in a blog circle again this month! So be sure to follow along to the link at the bottom of my post and go through the circle until you get back here!

There is just something so special about the beautiful light at a sunset family session and I love ending with a few silhouettes. Now, for the blog circle. Check out my friend Anna’s recent sunset session – lucky her, she gets to work at the beach! Topsail Beach Family Portrait Photographer

These are incredible!! I love the connection in them – and that light!! So beautiful

So much joy in this family!

Lovely! I especially love the beautiful winter light in these images. What a sweet session!

Ashley, this is a gorgeous session! I was SO on the fence about Elena’s workshop, it was at a time of year where I was just so crazy with other things. But I love how you captured this family so naturally, all of these are beautiful and the light in this location is so beautiful. I cannot believe I missed meeting so many people at Clickaway! I just assumed I’d run into everyone, but at least we don’t live too far at all and hopefully can meet up sometime soon!

Love these gorgeous light filled images Ashley!
