The moment the Smalley’s showed up to their session I knew I would ADORE their pictures and so would they! But leading up to their session, along with the other fall minis, there was a little uncertainty about the fall setting.
A last minute cancellation from a local vendor (literally the day before a shoot) put me in a really difficult spot. We had already delayed the fall minis due to a hurricane the week prior and now I was trying to figure out where we would host fall minis! I decided on the Ol’ Colony Golf course near Sokol Park in Tuscaloosa – a super fantastic public location great for taking portraits, hosting mini sessions, or hanging out with friends for some golf 😉 I absolutely love the tall grasses by the practice range that provide a dreamy background – it ended up being absolutely perfect for the session!
When I saw the Smalley’s outfits I was instantly in love. First, I am a sucker for pastels – that is my jam! but I could tell they had planned SO well for this session! I send a session styling guide to all my clients even for mini sessions!! In 15 short minutes clients can have a gallery of 40+ images to choose from and these images can really wow friends and family simply by what you wear! Attire can really elevate your session, even if it’s a mini session!!
Here are just a few images from their fall mini session, aren’t they gorgeous!?
We did a variety of groupings with siblings, parents, and all together!
I love little candid moments 🙂
Zoe, Brock, and Aiden are the cutest siblings!!
Even at a mini session, there is always some extra time for mom & dad!
I offer mini sessions seasonly for clients to get some quick pictures to update their family portraits! If you’re interested in seeing sessions coming up you can visit my mini session page here: Mini Sessions
