I had the pleasure of working with the Fonville Family recently. Sharlena (the beautiful lady in the pink scarf below) contacted me about taking family portraits of her family and also wanted to include her parents and her grandmother.  I was so excited because I love doing generational portraits! These types of portraits have so much meaning - especially as we get older and our loved ones leave us.

As with all of my portrait sessions, Sharlena and I started planning their perfect photo session.  I asked if they would like to do a landscape style session with trees and tall grasses or one that was more urban with an industrial feel.  She wanted something different, so we went urban and chose Taylors Mill (Taylors, SC) as the venue.  It could not have been a more perfect day or place for their session!

I had so much fun with this family!  And while I am only showcasing a handful of images in this post, the selected images do not tell the story of what went on behind the scenes.  There was lots of laughter (Sharlena's dad is a hoot!), giggles and smiles.  Their little girls were beyond adorable and were dancing and having the best time.  We even took a coffee and cocoa break at Due South Coffee (located in the Mill).

I hope you enjoy their family portraits - I know I enjoyed taking them! And can I just say, I really hope my hair is as awesome as Sharlena's grandmother's is when I am her age.  She is one stylish lady!
