Dogwood Bloom Family Photos In Oconee County, GA

I saw first blooms of dogwoods the other day, which means it is time to book your dogwood bloom family photos. The images below were taken mid-April last year when the dogwoods were on their last leg. I would suggest getting on the calendar today for the first couple of weeks in April. If the blooms come earlier or later that your scheduled date, I will let you know and we can adjust your session to ensure you get the best of the white flowers! So fitting for Spring portraits in celebration of Easter!

Love the pastel color palette this family chose for their dogwood bloom family photos. Perfect for this time foyer and all the fresh greens in the wilderness. Great way to coordinate, while not being too matchy. The white ruffled dress is one from the Yvonne Niemann Photography wardrobe closet, which all clients have access to.

We held their session at my outdoor studio in Oconee County, GA. The dogwood trees photograph beautifully here and the wooded pathways and creek give a lot of variety. Perfect spot for portraits!

I have been photographing this beautiful family for quite a few years now and it is always such a pleasure to capture them during important milestones. Big brother is a Freshman in high school now, middle sister is in middle school and baby sister is towards the end of her elementary journey. They are super close and are great companions. They sure are lucky to have each other. You can really tell that they adore each other and get along. Love how they are naturally holding hands in the creek as they explore and support their little sister. Mom mentioned how the girls love doing each other’s hair, so we made sure to document that. Isn’t it just beautiful?

Spring sessions are in full swing! LOVE the cherry blossoms right now. Perfect for this family’s portrait session yesterday morning. Wonderful way to celebrate this little man’s six month milestone with his parents. Magical backdrop for a magical family!

This young man is so laid back. Such an angel baby! At his portrait session yesterday, he just went with the flow and took in the scenery and cuddled with his family. Super sweet. We got some of the important milestone images of him sitting assisted and some tummy time photos. We then got lots of images of him with his parents that showcased the fun and love they have for each other. Such special bonds already formed. Cannot wait to see him grow and blossom. He is very loved and has the perfect parents to guide him through life. Such an honor photographing his six month milestone with his parents.

I have to mention how perfect the wardrobe selection was for this family’s Spring portraits among the cherry tree blossoms. The soft pastel colors were so fitting and such a classic choice. The blue seersucker outfit showed off this little man’s blue eyes and his crisp cotton long sleeve onesie with the Peter Pan collar was a nice addition on a cooler morning. Mom’s cream sweater and light beige suede skirt complimented the background and her son’s outfit. You can’t see dad’s outfit here, but he coordinated perfectly with his blue and white checkered button down shirt, tweed jacket and jeans. Will share more of this family’s portraits in the near future. Great example of what to wear for Spring portraits.

This location will be great for sessions for only a few more days. Another location with cherry blossoms will be ready within the next couple of weeks. Contact me as soon as possible if you would like portraits among the blossoming cherry trees! They don’t last for long.  |  706.713.0676


Spring Cherry Tree Portraits In Athens, GA

Things are starting to warm up here in Georgia and with that turn or weather comes blossoming cherry trees! Since it remained cold longer than normal in the area, the cherry trees will be in bloom a bit later than past years, but they will be worth the wait. In fact, this is the perfect time to get on the calendar for your Spring portraits as it saves you a spot and allows you plenty of time to plan your wardrobe and all the finer details. Don’t worry. If you pick a date and things aren’t looking as pretty as they could, we can move your session to a different date for optimal blooms! I will be keeping an eye on things and keep you updated. Of course, I am here to help all my clients plan their outfits and with anything else you need to customize things for what you envision.

This beautiful girl had her session last Spring among all the cherry blossoms and she wore a very special dress before it no longer fit her. The heirloom dress was made with love with a lot of attention to detail. She wore this dress for a wedding she was in. Isn’t it just exquisite? That lace is just divine! Such a great idea to dress your child in something that has such sentimental value before they grow out of it!. Love what mom wore too. The pastel colors are perfect for this setting amongst the cherry trees.

When this little lady was much younger, we did her birthday portraits at my outdoor studio with this same tea party set up. She loved it so much that she requested it for her birthday portraits again. Last time, her dad and one of her stuffed animals joined her for tea. This time, it was just the girls! Love mother daughter portraits like this. Memories that will last a lifetime! I brought lemonade and petit fours for the ladies.
