The W Family | Personal Photoshoot

Happy December everyone! The past few weeks have been a flurry of mini sessions, holiday celebrations, and baby preparations for me so I haven't had a chance to blog in a while! But I didn't want to let the time get away from me without wishing you all a happy holiday season, and I thought my own personal family photos would be a fun post to wrap up this year!

This post is actually a compilation of two separate shoots. We had our original family photoshoot a few weeks ago on a very cold and blustery day, and then about a week later we had a spare afternoon and much nicer weather, so we decided to run out for just a few more photos together. This year's family photos are particularly special, because they are our last as a family of three (well, three plus a giant bump)! We are so excited to welcome our little girl in just a few weeks, but wanted to document this time with our firstborn as well. I know we will treasure these for years to come, and I hope you enjoy a few of our favorites!

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, from my family to yours! I can't wait to see what next year holds!

The G Family

Today I'm sharing another favorite Fall mini session with the adorable G family. I was so excited to take their first Christmas photos as a family of three! The trees at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens were in full, incredible color and made a beautiful backdrop - they went especially nicely with this family that is two-thirds redheads! :D Here are some of my favorite moments:

Hosanna

Hi guys! I know it's been way too long since I've blogged! It's been a crazy (in a good way!) couple of months over here at Emily Rose Photography, which means I have gotten behind on blogging. But it also means I have so much beauty to share with you all in the coming weeks! :D

Fall brought in mini session season which is always so much fun! One of my first minis (when it was still quite hot!) was with my dear friend Hosanna. Not only is she the cutest thing on the planet, she is also just the sweetest girl you will ever meet. Her bubbly personality shines through these photos, and I had so much fun hanging out with her during this shoot. Here are some of my favorites! <3

Yellow

Last week when I was driving on backroad I've never been down before, I suddenly noticed this amazing field of yellow flowers. I instantly knew I had to do a shoot there, and I texted my sisters asking who was willing to be my volunteer model. My youngest sister Abby heartily accepted, and we headed out yesterday for a little mini shoot. Well what was supposed to just be a low-key test shoot turned into a beautiful session that I never expected! Abby nailed it and I could not be happier with the result! I can't wait to take advantage of this location again soon. Here are a few of my favorites!
