Fall is here, and for many families, that means updating family photos just in time for Christmas cards! But before you get to your session, you’ve got a job to do: picking out what to wear!This post is full of tips for how to choose family photo outfits. I’m also sharing a few inspiration photos to get the ideas flowing!
Kelsea and Rob graciously invited me into their home on a cold, cloudy January morning for a newborn session with their new son Nolan! The weather many not have been very cheery, the love and joy surrounding this sweet family more then made up for it!
Today we have photos of Baby Reid and his sweet family! We spent a Sunday morning together in their beautiful home in Birmingham, Alabama. We had calm moments with Baby Reid, and also embraced the chaos of whole family photos with a toddler and a newborn! We got a kick out of Reid’s facial expressions, and laughed at the way his big brother put all of his energy into loving on him!
The Starling family are dear friends! Katie was a college roommate, and every so often, I’ll make the drive to Auburn to take their family photos and stay for a visit. This session marked their daughter Elliot’s first birthday. We met up at The Red Barn and took photos around the property’s beautiful open space.
“When we have a baby, I want you to do our newborn session” – Whitney (Solomon’s mom), years before he was born. He’s been long thought of and prayed for, and he’s finally here! A couple of months after he was born, I got together with him and his parents for a newborn session. It’s one of my favorite newborn sessions to date!
At the end of last year, my shooting schedule was filled to the brim with family sessions! Every year, I’m overwhelmed with gratitude for the incredible families who ask me to be thier photographer. Meeting new people and serving families through photography is one of my favorite things about this work. It keeps me so fulfilled year after year!
This December, I’ve had the joy of photographing families in their homes as they partake in their favorite holiday traditions! For the Thaxton family, one of their favorite traditions is baking cookies from a family recipe. It’s something they do every year, and this year, the I got to photograph their morning of baking!
