{Mini Sessions} My Fall Family Mini Sessions Unexpected Hero | Kristin Boyer Photography Atlanta GA

Fall Photography is crazy.  Totally nuts.  This past fall was like all others in terms of busyness... family, parties, shopping and... PHOTOS!!  It was as busy as most falls are for photographers.  We run, run, run, shoot, shoot, shoot and edit, edit, edit in order to get all the photos done for our clients so they can be put on canvas, framed, wrapped and placed under the tree, given as a gift for the holidays or used in darling holiday cards. It is great great fun!  I love the chaos and I thrive on the craziness...though my family might not but they have all come to realize that during the fall, mommy is out of commission!

Well, this year was more difficult than most!  We had rain EVERY SINGLE WEEKEND.  It was nuts!!  I had mini sessions and family sessions backed up for WEEKS!  I was panicking because we kept having to reschedule our outdoor shoots with the beautiful leaves to another weekend.  On and on it went.  Finally, on a Thursday afternoon while I was watching the weather and there was a 90% chance of rain for the upcoming weekend, I picked up the phone and called on my favorite intown restaurant in Chamblee... Southbound.    My unexpected HERO of the fall.  Fall Family Mini Photo Sessions indoors with brick walls in a vintage, historic downtown Chamblee Restaurant, Southbound.  10 year old little girl laying on a soft white rug and laughingKristin Boyer Atlanta Photographer Chamblee, GA Fall Family Mini SessionsFall Family Photo Sessions inside a old historic building in downtown Chamblee, GA courtesy of Southbound restaurant.

The photo above is the owners daughter and this photo PERFECTLY depicts my JOY at being able to shoot at this gorgeous location.  This is how I felt when I was on the phone with "A".

 

 

Thanks to the great generosity of Southbound, (My hero!), a restaurant in Chamblee, we were able to move our photo sessions inside to this gorgeous location.  A professional writer from Hot Dish Review can describe the restaurant better than me...  

"Tucked away among the antique shops in a 130 year old building, Southbound is visually stunning with impossibly high ceilings and original distressed brick. A dramatic white tufted banquette runs the length of the dining room adding a fresh, bright element. Metal chairs and light fixtures made of repurposed butter tubs create a rustic farmhouse atmosphere. Guests are invited to hang out at the thick concrete bar that will likely be the most crowded place in the neighborhood once the spirits start pouring. Luckily, the heady aroma of the wood-fired grill was intoxicating enough."

VISIT THIS LINK For more photos:  It is GORGEOUS and we had a FULL day of fantastic photos, great space and wonderful people.  Many of our clients stayed for lunch on a rainy Saturday afternoon after their photo shoot!!!

We used the space upstairs, above the main restaurant with exposed bricks, beautiful wood floors, huge, light filled windows (even if it rained!) and a lot of character and charm.  Plus, when we got a little bit of sunshine or bright skies, they have a beautiful upstairs patio where we snapped a few pics.  

As my way of thank you to Amanda, I took a few photos of her son and daughter and I love these two!! They were so kind, polite and well mannered and I had such fun with them.   Stay tuned for more blogs about my fall mini sessions.  There just is simply not enough time to keep up! :)

This darling girl is such a great big sister.  She totally took care of her baby brother and helped make him comfortable in front of the camera. She distracted him, made him smile and laugh, hugged him, wrapped her arms around him and he totally opened up.  Such beautiful kids!  Wouldn't it be nice if all sibling relationships were this great??  

 

These two might also have been the MOST well behaved and polite kids of the day.   Sweet photograph of a big Sister and Little brother with brick wall background, old window  in a vintage, historic downtown Chamblee Restaurant, Southbound.Kristin Boyer Atlanta Photographer Chamblee, GA Fall Family Mini SessionsFall Family Photo Sessions inside a old historic building in downtown Chamblee, GA courtesy of Southbound restaurant.

I love this image above... sometimes the best ones are when they aren't even looking.

Is he not the cutest?  He loved his pretend sword and you can see it right in the very left corner of this image.  He was rather shy to start and with his sister loving on him and encouraging him, he opened right up and gave us some beautiful smiles!!
