Atlanta Family Photography Session At Agnes Scott University – Rand Family
On this chilly November morning, just after Thanksgiving, I met this awesome family on the Agnes Scott College campus for family portraits. This was carefully planned to not interfere with any college or professional football games.
Remember I said chilly? They were pros at NOT looking cold. Coats were donned as we walked around this beautiful campus. I was freezing in my winter coat, scarf, gloves, multiple sweaters and socks. I also had butt warmers stuck under my clothes in every spot possible. I also had plenty to share, which was helpful.
We had such a great time together. And really, how can you not when a two year old is getting thrown up higher than the chapel roof to touch the sky and squealing with delight?
Or when spontaneous Rockette dancing breaks out in front of an arts building?
If you look close, you might spot the two year old’s hand reaching around Dad.
I love it when parents have fun and remember they are still a couple. Sometimes shoots can be a little stressful for parents, feeling like the kids aren’t listening or participating appropriately. But it’s all good. This two year old was such a cutie patootie. And he had a blast throwing around one of the hand warmers while running around for me. In his red soled shoes. Loved it!
More dancing broke out right after this sweet shot. It. Was. Awesome.
Evan was so excited to meet his little brother. He talked to him and gave him smooches. My heart just melted.
And then there was more smooching.
So. I have to share that Michael has a smart mouth. He excels at giving others grief. In fact, I caught grief from him constantly throughout this shoot. And throughout our image review a week after. In addition to teaching tennis, he could give lessons on doling out grief. He’s up there with the best of them. But what I loved the most. Is his love for Meredith. I love the way he looks at her. He adores her beyond measure.
And I was there to capture that. They let me in, like a fly on the wall. This is why I love what I do. I don’t think there is anything else I would rather do in this life. Than to make these images. That last a lifetime. That remind others of the love they share for each. Nothing better, I tell you.
