Becca, Brittany, & Bayard // Wylde Center Family Portraits

I’ve worked with Becca & Brittany since 2015, capturing their engagement session, wedding, and several anniversary sessions. A few years ago, their little one, Bayard, entered the picture. Now, we’ve moved on to family sessions together throughout Atlanta and each time is a true joy to photograph these three. I’ve had the honor of watching Becca & Brittany grow into being parents and seen how their family has evolved. It’s such a beautiful process to be a small part of! This year, we planned Wylde Center family portraits in Decatur – with a few stops in Downtown together, too. 

Wylde Center Family Portraits

I found Wylde Center because of Brittany & Becca, actually. We’ve photographed a few sessions together there before and I love it every single time. Wylde Center is an incredible resource in Decatur, GA – focusing on environmental stewardship. They teach the community about gardening with green spaces, a reading nook, and all sorts of beautiful natural spaces. For this session, I let Bayard lead us. We wandered throughout the gardens, finding spots that were meaningful to them, had good light, or just looked interesting {my typical session flow!}. 

Afterwards, we left Wylde Center to head to Downtown Decatur. Downtown is such a great spot for portraits and we visited my favorite spot, Little Shop of Stories, and the ice cream shop in town, too – Butter & Cream. This has become one of my favorite spots for portraits in the area. Both businesses are super sweet and always wonderful about me doing photos there and I will continue to use them as staples during my sessions! 

Becca, Brittany & Bayard, thank you for letting me follow you around for a gorgeous day in Decatur. I loved being able to document what life is like for you three at this stage.
