Meet the Multiples

This week I have had the pleasure of meeting and speaking with several families with multiples.  This is a term I wasn't previously so familiar with.  But now I am and I am so happy to have been introduced to the Intown Atlanta Parents of Multiples group.  If you or someone you know has been blessed by multiple little ones, you can learn more about them at

I met this lovely family of multiples when we did a recent fall family portrait shoot.  We had a lot of fun, as you can see.



For this shoot we used all of our 90-minute session time and then some.  This is to be expected with a family (of this size or bigger), or if little kiddos are involved.  We need the extra time to allow us to focus in on the inter-relationships between the different family members, as well as each family member individually, and the whole family as a group.  And we can get lots of nice candid shots taken during our 'down time.'  We can also take our time to allow for breaks for tiring kids.  So we end up with a ton of genuine and beautiful photos that tell the story of your family at this singular point in time.

Fall Photos at the Tracks - Part II

Here are some photos from the second half of this beautiful shoot.  Little one's momma brought the cutest fairy outfit for her to change into - and she was happy to do so.  But alas, the cheer did not last. See what I mean? ...

I call this one My Sad Fairy

I know that look! (I'm a Mom)

This is not unusual when photographing young kids.  But they usually come back around to their normal sweet selves.  This little one did with help from mommy and me (I'm so glad to have mommies on my shoots - they are so helpful to the process!) and I'm so happy with the resulting photos.  Take a look at a few...

And because I am a sucker for black and white, here are a few of them...

Fall Photos at the Tracks - Part I

I spotted these nearby railroad tracks a while back and thought they would make for great photos.  I love how the trees arch over the tracks and the sunshine peeks out in the distance.  I only wish they weren't currently in use - That train's horn is LOUD!!!

And I knew this sweet child would be the ultimate model the first time I laid eyes on her.  She did not disappoint, although she was definitely not as into the shoot as I was!  Her momma did a good job of coaxing smiles out of her and, truth be told, I love a photograph of a child who's not smiling.  Somehow, to me, the innocence, trust, and wisdom of a child are more beautifully expressed that way.



We did an outfit change for the second half of the shoot and moved over to nearby Hidden Cove Park.  I'll post some of the "fairy" shots in Part II - stay tuned!
