Home for the Holidays Dunwoody Family Photographer
Blog | Dunwoody Family Photographer
Once your children are grown and have babies of their own, it’s so rare to have everyone under the same roof. Especially with a big family that’s spread out across the country like this one! So I couldn’t say no when they asked me to capture this moment in time for them over the holidays. And the fact that they trusted me to photograph them despite my having a 6 week old baby and an eye muscle that had been twitching for just as long from sleep deprivation?! Well, I was definitely honored; and I had to bring my A game (and extra coffee)!
We lucked out with a beautiful, sunny, mild winter day – for late December that’s a treat around here! And the woods behind their Dunwoody home made the perfect backdrop for our portrait session. That soft, filtered sunlight gave such a dreamy feeling.
Besides the important things, like the abundance of love and joy in this family, can we talk about their clothing?! Because shallow or not, that ranks high for having your photos turn out beautifully! One of the special things I include with every full session is a complimentary online styling service. Coordinating a large group is so tricky and this tool gives you the ability to pick the color schemes you like, the ages and genders of each person, and it links to actual items available in stores for you to purchase. It’s genius and this family did a perfect job of pulling their clothing together.
Each of the individual groups were at such special and unique stages in their lives. Wether it’s newly engaged, married and living out those early years together, or fully in the throes of diapers, nap times, and sippy cups – they’re all full of wonderful memories. There’s so much beauty in the chaos that comes with groups this size. And three generations?! Icing on the photography cake! I hope someday these images are treasured by the little cousins the way their parents and grandparents can treasure them today. Just one more way for them to remember of all the love they experienced at their grandparents’ home.
