I still can’t believe another summer is over, another school year has begun, and we are about to enter another fall season of family holiday sessions.   I have just entered my 10th year of photographing families in this area, and what a ride it has been!  After a nice break over the summer of just a couple of newborn sessions, I’m ready to get back in the swing of things leading up to the holidays!  October and November are my busiest months, so I’m offering an incentive this year to book early.       Anyone who books their session by September 15th will receive 25 complimentary Christmas cards!      Your session doesn’t have to be until October or November, but as long as it’s on my calendar by September 15th, you will receive this early booking gift.

I hate a post without images, so I thought I’d share some favorites from some sessions I had last fall that I never had the chance to blog.  These will hopefully give you some different ideas as well for where we can meet for your session….

Probably the most popular type of family session people request is the outdoor, natural light session.  Downtown, urban areas, state parks, public gardens, and college campuses all make for beautiful venues for a family portrait.

I LOVED what this family did for their Christmas card last year….matching Christmas PJ’s!  If you’re really just needing fun images for a card, why not do something a little out of the box? 🙂

I had another client last year that had just moved into a new house and wanted the new house in the pictures.  I was so happy to do this because it provided a background and setting completely unique to this family.

My final suggestion would be to take me on vacation with your family to a cabin in the North Georgia mountains of Blue Ridge like this family did!  Just kidding!  This is actually a cousin of ours, so I was honored to be able to do a family portrait for them while we were all together at Thanksgiving last year.

Wherever the location, or whatever the occasion, if you would like a fall session – be sure to call me soon to get the time and day of your choice!  I also wanted to mention that the cutoff date for sessions in which products are needed in time for Christmas will be November 23rd.

Happy almost fall ya’ll!
