Making a Day of It

What could be better than doing a family photo shoot for friends? Well making a whole day of it, of course!

Last week, I did a photo shoot at Stone Mountain Park in the Grist Mill area for one of my best friends, Melissa. She had not had a family photo done since her son was born, so we headed out to Stone Mountain to take some family pics with a beautiful backdrop, and we made plans to have a picnic and stay for the laser show. It turned out to be a fabulous day for all.

(Melissa gave me permission to use their photos on my blog, so I am taking full advantage 🙂 .)

First we started out with the family pics. I got some wonderful shots of Melissa and David as a couple…

After the family photos, we took a stroll across the covered bridge for a picnic. It was a lovely day to dine by the lake, peaceful and quiet. Then, we headed over to the lawn to wait for the laser show.

After two normal hands and one never-ending hand of UNO where we laughed until our sides hurt the laser show began…

It was a great evening to share with friends, and a wonderful photo shoot. You couldn’t ask for a better day.
