I met this family at Whittier Mill Park on the west side of Atlanta. I love this park at sunset! It has such spirit and history and such variety of backdrops for portraits. It had been a while since I had the opportunity to photograph a family with older kids. It was so nice and fun. I kept picturing (and hope) that my kids would end up like these boys – happy, respectful and fun-loving. The grandparents spent a few minutes with us at the beginning too and we just had such nice conversations. Each time I photograph a family, I get a glimpse into their lives, and my job is to interpret that relationship and connection and translate that into images that they can look back on and say, “Yes! That’s us!” That’s my goal. While editing this session I literally had a smile on my face the entire time. Looking at this all family together just makes me happy. Here’s a snapshot of their session below. For those of us that still have little ones, they do grow up and it’s kinda cool.
