Family Photography in the Atlanta Area / Family Holiday Photos in North Georgia / Bottom's Christmas Tree Farm Photographer in Cumming Georgia

My holiday mini sessions were so much fun! Mini sessions are a great way to get a few beautiful photographs of your family for christmas cards or framed gift prints. 

I had so many ADORABLE families come through this year! A handful of darling children to photograph and beautiful baby bumps. Bottom's Tree Farm was the perfect backdrop for the holiday photos.  So many gorgeous Christmas trees and the staff is so generous and sweet. 

The second day of holiday sessions was at McDaniel Farm Park. A new favorite of mine! This place is so beautiful and purrrrrfect for seasonal family or couple's photos. 

I love photographing families because obviously I can relate to the dynamic. I see the beauty in the chaos. So often I leave sessions with the mom or dad saying, "Well, I hope you got something to work with!" Don't worry, I almost always do. While you're busy trying to get a smile out of little Sally or trying to keep little Johnny from pulling up all of the weeds from the ground, I am patiently waiting and watching for the perfect moment. I know at some point that little one is going to make eye/camera contact with me with that little twinkle in their eye. 

Being a child and family photographer really teaches you patience.  Children aren't tiny adults, they're kids. They act like kids. Every blue moon I get a little one that is perfectly well behaved and follows all the directions I give them. But most children, my own included, have short attention spans. It's easy to only see all of that running around and coaxing and not focus on those split second moments when everyone is laughing and radiating joy. It happens. If only for a second!
