Oconee County Mini Sessions| Watkinsville, Georgia Photographer

It took a little time to get to know many people out here in Oconee County as we got settled in after a move from Woodstock, but I was SO excited to have some sessions scheduled locally with super sweet neighbors and a couple of families I had the pleasure of meeting through referrals and also thanks to the Nextdoor app (if you don’t know what this is and are trying to connect with people in a new area- I highly recommend this for personal and business connections!)

I scheduled a few last minute mini sessions over Thanksgiving Break and lucked out with some gorgeous weather and a beautiful location (thank you Piccadilly Farm !) I love visiting my Atlanta families, but I won’t lie- the two minute drive was a treat!  These kids all were so sweet to work with and although we started off with clouds that morning, the sunshine broke through and we had some fun playing in the fields!

Lenox Park, Atlanta |Fall Family Photography

Mini sessions are popular this time of year, and I truly enjoy offering them, but I will always recommend full sessions as the best option. Not as a sales pitch, though they honestly are the better deal, but because mini sessions seem to be more about getting that holiday card photo with everyone posed and looking their best, where full sessions are typically more focused on capturing the genuine bonds, in between moments, and unique personalities (with everyone still looking their best, of course ;)). They typically allow for more time and opportunities for those to shine through.

Little ones, while they don’t usually last much more than an hour, tend to appreciate starting slow and I try to make my full sessions feel like a “walk in the park” for them. This little lady has come to know what to expect over the years with me, so she embraced it whole-heartedly and this might be one of my favorite full sessions with her and her family yet! Sooooo,  I got a little carried away with this sneak peek…

In-Home in Atlanta | Baby Boy

While I still enjoy meeting families at parks and fields, my personal favorite type of session will always be an at-home session, combining lifestyle and posed images. Especially with babies under 1 year. I love the personalization of these, and capturing them in their element.  This little 9 month old was a dream to work with and ya’ll- with those curls and baby blues- no words needed!
