I love this little family so much! I met and fell in love with Jasper while she was working at my favorite downtown boutique, Terra Cotta. She is the sweetest woman and her taste is impeccable. I then met Bert because he owns I Thee Film. He is a super talented wedding videographer and his company is one of my faves to refer. I remember him telling me about his new baby boy, Archer. I knew Jasper had just had a baby boy named Archer too and figured there could probably only be one adorable new baby boy Archer in Savannah. So I was like, oooooh you’re Jasper’s husband, hahah! I have loved getting to know this cutie little family better and I was really excited when they had me do their Spring family portraits last year!
We met in Pulaski Square, which is my favorite square in Savannah. It has the prettiest tree canopy and is generally calmer and less traversed by the public than some of the other squares in the historic district. Plus there are lots of beautiful buildings nearby to play with too! Savannah was in full bloom so the azaleas gave us a stunning backdrop for photos.
Since this session, Jasper has started her own business. Resplendent Living is a beautiful lifestyle blog and interior design company. They have also had their second baby boy so I cannot wait to photograph them again!
When photographing families, I much prefer to have the family play and interact with each other instead of just stuffy poses. I make sure to get everyone smiling at me for a few poses so you have it but I otherwise love the photos that show laughter, relationships and love more!
And don’t worry. When your toddler throws an inevitable fit, I keep shooting. Because this is life and I want to document it. These moments are just as precious as the smiley ones. Plus, I just think they make for hysterical photos that I know you will look back on and love that you have!
