I’m so excited that you stopped by! The Toni Goodie Photography Blog is where you will be able to get to know me and view my latest work. I'm a published wedding photographer based in Daphne, AL, servicing the Alabama Gulf Coast. To book with me head over to the contact page and let's chat!
The Janey Family is so special to me and I’m thrilled that their Downtown Fairhope family portraits are on the blog today! One of the best parts about being a family photographer is that I get to see families grow over the years. It’s hard to believe that Henry, their son is almost one! I remember photographing him when they all came home from the hospital after he was born last year. And now, he’s getting to be so big! Their daughter Caroline is growing too fast too! I photographed her around Easter last year and she already seems so much bigger now! It’s crazy but such a gift to be able to watch them grow up.
We decided to have their family session by the pier in Downtown Fairhope, AL. It wound up being a gorgeous day and we were lucky enough to have some beautiful weather for our session. We spent the evening walking around the park and just letting the kids be kids. I’m all about natural when it comes to family sessions – so allowing kids to play, be silly, and laugh is definitely part of the plan. Henry and Caroline were great – and they had a lot of fun with their parents. Caroline even gave her dad “bunny ears”! Okay, she actually just grabbed his ears but it was so sweet!
Family portraits don’t have to be stressful. Take the time to just enjoy the evening together and I promise, I’ll take care of capturing your memories for you! I never want families to feel like their session was too much and that they couldn’t just enjoy being together. I love seeing how families interact during sessions – it’s always such a great time! Summer is coming to an end but the fall is a great time to have your portraits updated, so make sure you reach out to me soon.
