We didn't let the rain stop us last Sunday for this family's mini-session. We took several photos inside the beautiful conservatory at the State Botanical Garden of Georgia and we even ventured outside with our umbrellas for a couple of shots too.
This little boy has got to be one of the happiest babies I've ever met! He is so adorable and always has a smile on his face. I took his 5 month photos too, and he was just as happy then (click here to see his 5 month session)! He can brighten anyone's day with that cute little grin. His family is such a delight to be around too, and I had so much fun taking their family photos! Here are just a couple of the many great shots from our session.
The weather was absolutely beautiful on this autumn day at the State Botanical Garden of Georgia...a perfect 65 degrees and sunny. I've gotten to see this adorable little toddler grow and reach milestones! I can't believe she just celebrated her 1st birthday!! T Family, you were such a pleasure to photograph! Enjoy the sneak peek!
My love for photography began at an early age. Growing up, I always treasured how family photographs and home movies could capture emotions and relationships at a particular moment in time. After finishing my formal education for high school guidance counseling several years ago, I began photography as a hobby. Yet, it wasn't until after the birth of my son that my passion for photography grew even more. It is this love and passion for photography, people, and relationships that guided me toward starting Stacey Cooke Photography (in Athens, Georgia).
I use a more organic approach to capturing portrait images by using natural light in an outdoor landscape, a brightly sunlit room, or near a softly lit window. This helps to create mood and emotion in the photograph that is sometimes lacking in a more traditional studio setting. My hope is to capture the innocence of the young child, the love of the newly engaged couple, and the excitement of the wedding on the couple's special day. As always, I hope to create beautiful photographs that will become your work of art. I look forward to getting a glimpse into your life and capturing the beauty of your moments.
