Family photography at Donaldson-Bannister Farm in Dunwoody, Georgia

Updated: Feb 25, 2019


Photographing families in the fall for Holiday cards

It is such a privilege for me when I get to photograph repeat clients. I first photographed this beautiful family to celebrate the birth of their youngest baby girl. I was excited to see Misha again at 6 months of age as well as her 2-year-old sister Mila. We chose Donaldson-Bannister Farm in Dunwoody as our location as it was closed to their home and is a beautiful, charming restored farm dating back to the civil war. We discussed outfits and loved that mom chose reds and greens for the perfect Holiday card picture. It had rain so much in Atlanta in November and December that we were lucky to have a beautiful, dry, warm day perfect for family pictures. I was able to capture pictures of each sister with each parent as well as pictures of the sibling together. I love capturing the connection between the family, interacting and having fun. When time allows, I always try to take pictures of mom and dad together during the family photography. Sometimes it has been a long time since they had professionally pictures of just the two of them. I can’t wait to see this family again for baby’s milestones pictures.

I usually always start photographing the whole family looking at the camera before moving into more "candid" shots

Love photographing mom with her children and showing the bond and connection between them

Of course we also have to have dad with each of his girls

Lovely Misha, I photographed her at 6 weeks of age, and was excited to see her again at 6 months of age

Sweet Mila, 2 years old, just full of energy

And more pictures of dad and his girls- with beautiful golden light in the background

I always try to capture a picture of mom and dad alone, I just feel that it is so important to have to remind them that they are a couple first!
