Fall Mini Session in NWA for the George Family



The blog contains little bits of my life, my passions, and my work. I update it daily so there is always something new to come see.





I get to introduce you to a new family for today’s Fall Mini Session in NWA! Ladies and gentlemen, let me present the George family! I met Anna in 2009 (March 1st, to be exact), and have been able to work together a couple of times over the years. When one of our other families, the Hurlbut family, mentioned that Anna was looking for a photographer for to shoot a fall mini session in NWA, I sent my old friend a text! Fast forward a week later, she filled my last spot of the season.

During this Fall Mini Session in NWA, I wanted to shoot portraits of each of their three daughters. I love how beautiful these look in black and white. Each daughter warmed up to me quickly so I could capture their sweet personalities and smiles.

Also during this Fall Mini Session in NWA, I thought I would take a few of Anna and Carl. I didn’t get to photograph their wedding, so now I feel like I’m making up for lost time, lol.

Then we spent some time playing in the leaves. I typically do this either 1) at the end of the shoot when I don’t care if they get messy or 2) if the kiddos are having a hard time warming up to me. Playing always helps. You can see by my angle that I’m also on the ground with them, which helps them see me as non-threatening. Yay for bonus tips!
