I loved this Family Session at Jackson Springs Park! Family lifestyle sessions are definitely one of my favorite things to photograph, and when it’s your cousin who you haven’t seen in YEARS, along with her family that you haven’t met yet, it makes it even better! Carly is my second cousin on my mom’s side, and as I mentioned, I hadn’t seen her in at least ten years. It was so great to catch up with her and meet her sweet little family! Vayln did so well through the whole photo shoot, and I think she has a bright future in modeling! 😉

We did their family session at Jackson Springs Park here in Macon, and it was the perfect backdrop for their pictures. I fall in love with that location with every photo shoot that I photograph there! The kids always end up loving the creek, and it makes for some beautiful pictures too!

The majority of this family session was taken with Fuji 400h film, which is always fun to do, and I love how the photos turned out! Thanks to The FIND Lab for processing and scanning them!

People often ask me before a photo shoot about what they should wear, and I always suggest wearing colors that will blend well together, as well as match the walls of your home if you plan to print any (which I always, always, always suggest). I didn’t have to give any outfit suggestions to Carly and her family because they could all be models and looked like they stepped out of a celebrity family magazine!
