Over the weekend The Mini Experience sessions went down without a hitch! These sessions open the door for me to meet so many great families and to photograph some favorite returning families! Early in the week the weather looked questionable but when the time came I couldn’t have asked for better days!
Family Photos in Forsyth Park
On Saturday morning the first of two Mini Experience offers kicked off in Forsyth Park. I got to the park early and realized the Veteran’s Day parade had been moved and staging was happening next to the park so I quickly messaged all the families letting them know what areas to avoid on their drive down and for parking. Luckily everyone was able to avoid the extra traffic and sessions went off as scheduled!
My favorite places to take photos in Forsyth actually don’t include the fountain – GASP!! – I know! I love the area by the fragrant garden and the path from there to the fountain much more than lobbying for a spot at the fountain. Each family had photos taken by the garden, on the path between the garden and the fountain, and by the fountain during their 15 minute session.
Tree Farm Family Photos
On Sunday afternoon I trucked it out to Effingham to host day two of The Mini Experience weekend at Rahn Farms. I had a blast in the trees thinking about the holidays, meeting new families, and catching up with some photography regulars/friends.
Everyone had on their holiday colors and the afternoon went well! These sessions have been some of my favorites from the year and I can’t wait to see which photos the families choose and share as their favorites!
