Fall Mini-Sessions, Druid Hills day 1, part 1

I still have more mini-sessions from the fall to blog!
This preview from my first day on the east side was a little long, so I’m dividing it in two.  The first family on this day I met for the first time when they stepped out of the car – and what a handsome site they were!  Mama and dad looked elegant and like the doting parents they were at the same time.  Big sister was so shy!  But we got her warmed up by the end.  And of course little sister – look at this face.

Next I had 2 families in a row that were from little girl first birthdays this year!  You may recognize them from here and here.  I get so excited to see my first birthdays again – they’ve always grown so much!  And both these families are so easy going and have fun together which makes things easy for me!
The second family of the day brought their two dogs, and there was a moment when they were able, as a unit (2 parents, one toddler, and one canine) crawled forward in the sitting position to get close to their eldest dog, who clearly was not going to be moving any time soon – that was the most impressive thing I saw all day!
With our 3rd family, big brother had so much fun with our fall leaves.  It’s always so refreshing to see our surroundings through the eyes of a little one.

Spring Mini-Sessions!

I walked outside this morning and it was just another dreary winter day.  But when I went out again around 5:00 – so suddenly, spring was here.
Sun-warming, wind-blowing, daffodils-waving spring!  I don’t know if it will last even until tomorrow, but it felt amazing.

So it seems an appropriate time to announce spring mini sessions!

Fall Mini-Sessions, Day 3 – Roswell – Part 2

Continuing from the last post, here’s a look at the rest of the mini-sessions in Roswell from late October!

First up we have a family that I met at these minis a year ago, back with a bigger boy.  He was such a teddy bear!  And so happy – all laughs and rosy cheeks.  So happy they came back to see me again!  Next we get to the afternoon with a gorgeous family of 6.  They are good friends of a good friend of mine, but I hadn’t seen them since the second one was born.  Check out these adorable, adorable faces.  Third in the line-up here is a family that I was lucky enough to see several times throughout the year  – and I just saw them again for newborn pictures of a baby sister!  Their little guy was so interested in playing – even the pebbles were a play-world to him.  It’s always neat to see little ones fascinated with the world around them.  I closed out the day with some dear friends. We got started late, so we went a little later – and beyond into the sunset, which is why I have so many of them.  But what else can you do when you have both a 2-year-old AND a dog that are natural models??  They were such a treat to end my day with!

Fall Mini-Sessions, Day 3 – Roswell – Part 1

I went to Roswell for the first time for mini-sessions this fall, and it worked out so well!   Roswell, I will have to be back.

I had 8 families on this day, so I’m dividing up the post into 2 parts.  Here’s just some of the photos from a fall morning in Roswell:

Fall Mini-Sessions – Day 2

There was high demand in Smyrna this year, so I ended up with 2 days in the same spot.  🙂

First up – I would like to thank these cuties, AGAIN, for being the ones to brave the early morning cold!  And they missed a soccer game, too!  These two boys are so smart and funny – and I’m glad I had some extra blankets for them to snuggle with.  🙂

There are twin boys in my 2nd family of the day; I went to high school with their parents, but I first met the boys during fall mini-sessions last year.  They were my last session of the evening then, and once they warmed up, I got to see them interact and laugh together in front of a warm setting sun.  This year they were all ready to go, and gave me their most handsomest looks!

Third for the day is the fabulous L family!  I’ve known these guys since the beginning – they’re always wonderfully sweet!    I feel so lucky to see these kids and their parents each year – I just can’t believe how much bigger the little ones keep getting.

Next we have two brothers – and my first time getting them in front of my camera.  I love sibling shots, and I really love the big kid little kid dynamic.  These two were all boy, sweet younger brother make look little, but he was just as tough as his big brother.

And last, we’re skipping to the evening. Because we had a little mix up with the time…  But I was able to meet this family a little later on.  Dad wasn’t able to join us (I think to his relief – I’ll get him next time) and brother unfortunately had a full bladder when he arrived…. so, you’ll see that.  Add in 1 hungry baby, and mom had her hands full.
We were near a playground, so after they graced me with a few sitting shots and smiles, I followed them to the playground and let them play around.  Love their sweet natural smiles!
