YEAR IN THE LIFE Family Photography in Atlanta | December 2022

Family Photography in Atlanta | A Year in the Life

Wow, what an amazing experience to photograph the same families multiple times throughout the year. I learned so much, and had so much fun getting to know each family even better. You just can't make up the things I witnessed. The magic of childhood, the hard work of parenthood, and the love that connects them.

Photographing Year in the Life projects was what I envisioned my dream job as, it just took me this long to figure that out. I'm looking forward to continuing this project with these families into 2023, and starting with three new families. I love my job.

It's All About the Photo Album

Now that the year has ended, I've been going through each session to pick out my very favorite pictures that I made for each family during the year, in order to design their album. It's been so hard picking favorites. The other day it hit me that this is what it's all about! The photo album!

We had all of these sessions throughout the year, and each month my clients received more photos in their online gallery, but it was all just another step toward receiving a beautiful coffee table book style album. A sort of artful yearbook documenting the year. I am beyond thrilled to deliver these albums! I can imagine how awesome it will be to pull the book off the shelf years down the road and relive these memories.

December Year in the Life Photo Sessions

The end of the year was full of festive photoshoots, with lots of cousins and grandparents involved. We made and decorated cookies, toured the neighborhood to admire Christmas lights, visited the zoo and ice skated at Ponce City Market's rooftop. It was a great end to a year full of connections. Enjoy the highlights!
