This family was referred to me by my friend Amanda who has relocated to Atlanta. She photographed them when their now-3-year-old child was a baby and they loved their photos. Amanda is an incredibly talented photographer, so I had some big shoes to fill!
When they arrived at our location, baby E was still asleep in her stroller, so I got a chance to get to know big brother and create some amazing portraits of him. What a big kid in a little kids’ body! He blew me away with his love of sports, his knowledge of numbers (he can count to 1,000) and his generally happy disposition. He is going to be one of those kids that becomes the golden boy of his high school– athletically talented as well as academically. Oh, and stinkin’ adorable.
Once I got a chance to peek in the stroller at sleeping baby E, it was love at first sight. Look at those cheeks! It took everything for me to control myself and not be the annoying lady that pinches children’s cheeks. Once she opened her eyes, they just sparkled. She looks like a live baby doll. You would never know from her photos that she was teething the day of our shoot. She was really a trooper. I pushed her and she did so well!
Well… onto the portraits of this beautiful family. I hope Amanda approves 🙂
