Family Photo Day

What ya'll may not know about me is that I am the oldest of 5 cousins and when I say oldest, I mean by a whopping 15 years. Yes....I had 15 years to myself until the little ones invaded my space came along, but I learned to share and I love them to death.

This weekend I had the opportunity to photograph the 3 youngest. It was a long day of photo taking and traveling and I am sure that the kids won’t disagree. By the time we reached Stone Mountain, the youngest, Kai said "No more pictures already." I guess 5 hours of photographing can get tiresome, but I am very appreciative that they gave me their all during those 5 hours.

We traveled to a local park near the house called Freemans Mill where the majority of the pictures took place. We then headed off to Stone Mountain for some fun in the sun and a $38 train ride that lasted all of 23 minutes. The kids probably would have had more of an adventure with me piggy backing them up and down the mountain, but what can you do. The important part is that we got the chance to hang out as a family and we all had a great time.

Below are a few pictures from the day’s adventure:

Can you believe that a talent agent once told these kids that they weren't ready to model yet? Who is he kidding? Clearly the kids aren't the issue. What do you think?

Bria's colors were so vibrant. I loved it!

Ain't no mountain high enough honey!


As you can see the day wore them out- love this shot

Hungry? Why Wait?

The boy may have been tired, but that doesn’t stop him from eating. He downed a complete double cheese burger meal from McDonalds by HIMSELF! WOW is all I can say.

Had a great day shooting and learning more about myself as a photographer. I definitely have a lot more to learn, but with each life's lesson I am improving more and more as a photographer and a person.
Cheers to that!
