I had the pleasure of photographing the Rounds family last weekend at a cute little park area behind the Smyrna Market Village. Beautiful fall leaves, an overcast afternoon, and a pond filled with lots of ducks made for a great session… not to mention the two adorable little ones!
When one of my oldest college friends, Dana, asked me to photograph her family, I was so excited. We don’t see each other as much as we would like, but when we do, it’s like no time has passed. Her husband adores her and their 3 little girls, and speaking of… how absolutely precious are those little ones? It was such a fun morning playing in the leaves, kissing on baby sister, and letting one little budding photographer snap some photos of Dana and me in between.
Our friends have THE cutest little boy. Seriously. He has the most adorable, six-toothed smile (is that a word?) and I just love his red hair. Chase is so sweet and smiley, and he’s generally one of the happiest little guys I know.
I got to photograph him and his parents for a holiday session in the park over the weekend, and despite his best efforts to make me chase him all over the place, we ended up with some great shots. I think the verdict is in — he definitely prefers eating his puffs and playing on the swings and slides over sitting nicely and posing for portraits. Big surprise — I’m sure most of us would!
Last weekend, I had the pleasure of photographing 3 different groups of people near and dear to my heart. First up, my cousin’s three beautiful, blonde children. We headed down to Krog Street to take advantage of the graffiti art and do some skateboarding with the boys. It was a fun morning, and I loved getting to spend time with my cousin and her sassy, silly, not-so-small babies.
Last weekend, I spent Sunday afternoon doing a photo session at Taylor-Brawner Park with one of my college roommates, Carson, and her adorable little family. I’ve recently started on a new adventure in photography in preparation for shooting a friend’s wedding next summer. Photography has always been a passion of mine, and I’m so excited that this opportunity gave me the push to pursue it. It’s been fun taking classes and experimenting so far, and I am so excited to see where this takes me.
It’s amazing to see how one of my first college friends has become such a wonderful mom to two precious little ones in the past few years. Thank you to the Webers for being my first test models and letting me document this moment in time for you guys. You all did a most fantastic job!
