Beltline Family Portraits in Atlanta // Candyce, Jason, Jameson & Jacynthe

I photographed Candyce & Jason’s engagement session and then wedding back in 2017, so when they moved back to Georgia earlier this year and reached out for a family session, I was so excited! Not only did I get to see these two again, but I got to meet their children, Jameson & Jacynthe. We wandered the Beltline by Ponce City Market, letting the kids take charge of the speed and some of the locations of the session. Whenever it comes to working with this age of child, especially when they’re big fans of exploring, I try to let them be in charge with just some gentle coaxing or suggestions, letting them make the magic happen with you. You’ve gotta roll with the punches and just see what happens! I love these shots that we got and I love capturing these ages.

Ponce City Market Family Portraits

I always send some helpful tips and advice and maybe some color palettes to my couples and families when planning their session, but Candyce and Jason blew it out of the water! I love this range of oranges and pinks, so many wonderfully warm tones to balance out the greenery and wall art of the Beltline.

We started right outside of Ponce City Market at one of my favorite current art pieces, then took a walk down to find some greenery and dodge some rain clouds.

We let the kids drive the session and decide what we did in what order. It’s so important to me that it feels more like a fun hangout than a session, really. So when one child needed a break, we focused on the other one for a while and vice-versa. We kept it loose and relaxed and fun, moving constantly and adjusting and adapting as needed.

We danced and played and found some scooters – which were a huge hit – and an overgrown wall covered in ivy, one of my favorite things to look for when photographing in the city. Then finished off in a little patch of nature along the Beltline. Everything was just beautiful and I’m so happy I got to see this sweet family again!
