It brings me so much joy to be able to capture moments like this. As a mother of 3, I know the chaos of raising a family. The early mornings, sleepless nights, and endless days that all magically become years in the blink of an eye. The beauty of these motherhood sessions pulls on my heartstrings as I think back to the quiet moments of nursing my own littles. My 3rd is still breastfeeding, but at 9 months old, he is rapidly seeking independence and I know these quiet moments are fleeting.
Thank you to this gorgeous mama for braving a summer session. That morning light and breeze make it all worth it here in Peachtree City, GA.
Tonie had written me months ago asking if I would be in Florida anytime soon because she was hoping to schedule a session to celebrate their 10 year wedding anniversary. She wanted something fun and colorful. She envisioned a graffiti wall and after weeks of trading dates and ideas, we realized we weren’t going to be able to sync up our calendars and the likelihood of find grafitti in St. Augustine was slim.
I came to Florida and while driving through town, drove by this beauty! I pulled over on the side of the road and sent a message letting her know that this gem had been found and I’d be in town for one more day. Lo and behold, she was free and we brought her vision to life.
Her boys are young and strong willed and that night they took control of our session. While we lacked a lot of the poses Tonie wanted, we captured the real genuine beauty of her family.
Happy Anniversary! You’ve created such a beauty family.
I was able to spend a little time this summer back in Florida and met up with the M family while in St. Augustine. Its been years since our last session and we had so much fun catching up. While none of them looove being in front of the camera, their easy going personalities made it so much fun to capture their genuine personalities. I mean look at J’s sweet smirk and Z’s crazy adorable smile.
After our portraits at Washington Oaks Garden, we headed across the street for some beach fun at Sunset. We had so much fun splashing each other in the ocean and making memories as the sunset.
I’m back home in Georgia and ready for all the upcoming Fall sessions, but the McKeebys have the travel bug, so if you’ve got a vision for a session, just ask. We love to travel.
While in Orlando, I met up with the lovely Angela from Angela Gawloski Photography. We had so much fun playing in the field at sunset capturing her and her sweet (and wild) boys.
Typically the month of January is a slow photography month. The dead leaves and cold temperatures aren’t enticing anyone to get outdoors. However, we lucked into a beautiful sun kissed afternoon making memories here in Sharpsburg, GA.
