Sophia and Paul’s little family was one of the other photo shoots from my mini sessions a couple weeks ago, and I’m so glad they were a part of it! I have known Paul and Sophia for years, and it was amazing to see The Lord answer their prayers about having a baby. When I found out Sophia was pregnant, I was so, so excited! Their baby girl, Karis is just a few months older than my youngest, so it was fun photograph her running around everywhere and watching her have a good time with her parents! It was definitely one of the hottest days of the year when we did this photo shoot, but they were all troopers! I loved getting to catch up with this sweet family as we sweated together in this crazy Georgia heat!
As I mentioned in another blog post from the mini sessions, I hosted them at The Macon City Auditorium in Downtown Macon, and I loved it! It was the perfect location for these family sessions, and I will definitely be using it again for more family photo shoots, engagement sessions, and senior shoots!
Photographing kids is always a fun change from photographing weddings, although trying to get the kid’s attention to look at the camera is pretty similar to getting an excited bridal party to smile at the camera. Thankfully I don’t have to make monkey noises for the bridal party to look at the camera! 😉
Karis did so good through the whole photo shoot and I think her sweet personality really came out for the pictures! Isn’t she the cutest?!
A little bit more about me- I’m Candice Emerson and I’ve been a family and wedding photographer for over 9 years now! I’m a hybrid photographer, which means I shoot on digital cameras as well as film cameras. My style has been considered “light and airy”, romantic, and timeless. I absolutely love every wedding I have the honor to photograph whether it be a barn wedding, beach wedding, destination wedding, elopement, church wedding, or even an intimate woodland wedding, I’m a native to Macon, GA and photograph weddings and families in Macon, Fort Valley, Milledgeville, and Atlanta. I’m always up for an adventure and ready for destination weddings or engagement sessions any day of the year! Contact me for more information on meeting for coffee and booking your wedding! I would love to be your wedding or family photographer!
