I have never liked posed shots of the kids, such as school photos with fake backgrounds. Instead we meet with Karen each Fall for some less contrived, more spontaneous and natural shots. We first met Karen when she photographed the kids at daycare and she has always captured their personalities perfectly. We always have a giggle that we are one of the few families in the South who don’t own anything monogrammed or smocked for their children’s photos 🙂
On Saturday we headed about 45 mins out of town to a horse farm where we’ve had photos taken before. It was just the most idyllic Fall day. Clear skies, gorgeous sunshine and crisp air. We had a great time and I can’t wait to share the photos with you soon!

Here are a couple of photos Karen has taken in previous years – I just love them. If you are in the Atlanta area you must book a session with her here!
Today it is freezing with beautiful blue skies – October really is the best month in the South.
Boots – Stuart Weitzman 5050 // Dress – H&M (old) // Cardigan – AllSaints (similar here)
THOSE BOOTS!!!! I love that last outfit!
Those pictures of your kids are wonderful.
Ha haaaa yes the boots indeed:) And I am so happy to have them on my feet again!
Love all the photos taken at the horse farm…Karen really did a fantastic job on all of them. All the photos of your kiddos are adorable! They are just too cute! Your hair looks gorgeous, btw, and I love your shades. 🙂
I never seem to wear anything other than aviators these days – they are so light and comfortable and I really need polarized lenses here for driving.
Love, love, love the boots!! I’m not a fan either of posed photos, these are beautiful 🙂 x
The boots are amazing Sarah – worth every penny in my eyes – I treat them kindly so they will last me years:)
Stunning photos of the kids, they look so natural….you are also looking fab too! Great outfits, absolutely love the long boots xx
Thanks Michelle – I was wearing ankle boots all the time for a couple of years but this year I’m really enjoying wearing long boots again!
The picture with your kids and the horse is just stunning! I’m loving your over the knee boots x
These boots are just the best – pricey but worth it!
I agree school type photos are not always my favourite. Love the one of your two and the horse, it looks like they are having great fun! Also Poppy love those boots, can’t believe how your weather has changed!! Helen xx
The one with the horse is my favorite ever – it was one of those miracle moments that got captured on camera!
They look like beautiful photos! I’m not a fan of staged photos either, much prefer a more natural photo which captures personality. Looking lovely. Lynne x
