Family Photojournalism | Atlanta

We made it to 2022! Another surreal year is in the books, and I'm really excited about the fresh start a new year brings. But one of my last family photo sessions in December was with the awesome Head family in Decatur. I photographed them at home, just being their cute selves, and I love the photos we got that day.

Activities are a great way to distract everyone during a family photoshoot, so that I can slip into the background and capture the moments that are naturally happening. When there is a two year old involved the activities change quickly, and at this session the family baked muffins, hung the daily Christmas ornament, played in their yard, and cared for their beautiful chickens...side note: I wish there were chickens at every family photo session :)

I love the photos from our photoshoot because they are real, and they are pictures that tell an honest story of this family right now. We got some cute environmental portraits of them together, and I also shot family documentary photographs. This combination of styles is what family photojournalism is, and I'm excited to share some of my favorites from our session:
