Traditional Southern Heirloom Portrait Of Two Year Old

This beautiful gal came in yesterday morning for her traditional southern heirloom portrait session. Her mom really wanted some classic images of her daughter to document her second birthday.

I first photographed this southern belle when she was a newborn at her home, so this heirloom portrait session was extra special for me to see her so grown and with such personality. I loved to see her light up and clap with glee with thoughts and visions of puppies! She is certainly an animal lover. Isn’t she just precious?! I cannot get over her beautiful curls, her perfectly arched eyebrows and her precious smile.

She is wearing a family heirloom dress that her mom wore around the same age. It was handmade years ago with much love and attention to detail. I just love it when clients incorporate sentimental items like this for their heirloom portrait sessions. It makes everything that much more meaningful. The green smocked dress is looks so good with this little lady’s complexion and the hand painted backdrop. Great example of what to wear for a traditional southern heirloom portrait session.

1st Birthday Christmas Photoshoot | Athens, GA

This little lady’s first birthday was documented with a Christmas photoshoot at her family home in Athens, GA. I love it when parents choose to showcase their baby’s milestones while highlighting the season – in this case, a festive tree! Since we held their session at their home, I was able to get images with the tree and then the more traditional images without the Christmas decorations. It worked out perfectly!

This sweet baby girl is such a delight to photograph. Love her personality. Not sure how mom and dad ever say no to that face. I bet it is pretty hard! I loved documenting her first year milestones and seeing her change right in front of my camera! When I first photographed her, she was just a couple of months old. Now look at her. Sitting, standing and smiling with such confidence! I’m sure that she is more into the wrapping paper, ribbon and boxes at this age than the actual presents. Remember those days?! SO sweet!

She wore this exact heirloom dress for each photoshoot I did for her. Such a special piece and gave great perspective on her growth. This dress was a dress her mom wore when she was just a baby herself! LOVE that!!!! Sentimental items like this are always a great idea to use for your portraits. Great example of how to dress your baby girl for her own photoshoot.

I hope everyone is enjoying this holiday season. It is always that much magical with children in the home! Soak it all up while you can.

If you are wanting images like this of your own little one, consider booking a photoshoot in the new year. There may not be any sessions left this year, but you can still book a session for the beginning of January before you take all your Christmas decorations down. Of course, any time of year is a good time to document those important milestones. Contact Athens, GA baby photographers at Yvonne Niemann Photography to book your photoshoot!  |  706.713.0676

Best Family Photos At Christmas Tree Farm

It’s the Holiday Season and with that come the best family photos at Christmas tree farm sessions!!! This family’s session took place at a local tree farm in San Diego. It took some research and time to find this particular location, but it was well worth the time and effort. Don’t you agree?!

Mom did such a great job dressing her family for their session. Pure perfection for a family session at a tree farm. The pop of red and cream/white really enhances the images against the vibrant green pine needles.

Dad made the hot chocolate stand and mom decorated it with festive garland and all the accessories needed to cocoa.  Even their family dog joined in on the fun. Notice how he is coordinated to everyone too?!

At the end of the session we got some images of just mom and dad together and some of them alone too. Such loving parents and individuals. So good to see this family together and how the interact. They are truly an inspiration and always makes such a great impression on me.

Sessions this year are fully booked, but consider a Christmas themed session next year at local tree farm here in Oconee County. I know October and November may seem too early, but it is actually a great time to do these sessions. Weather is great and you don’t have to worry about crowds. Another bonus is getting in the Holiday spirit early and being able to send off images for Christmas cards early is just one less thing you have bother yourself with once the Holidays get in full swing!
