Right before the Holidays, I had a photo shoot with the Harris Family. What a wonderful way to end the year! Such a beautiful family and I just absolutely LOVE their clothing choice!!! This happened to also be the first time I did a family shoot on the grounds of The Alabama Shakespeare Festival and at Blount Park. Such a gorgeous setting- I am super happy with the way the images turned out. I will definitely be returning there with future clients. Here are a few favorites from the session...
I'm really making an effort to do yearly family pictures that include myself and my husband! I normally take professional pictures every year at some point of the kids, but rarely are we in the pictures. As I have come to be a print photographer and have really learned to appreciate the value of the printed image in this overwhelmingly digital world- I am very well aware of how I need to to change this! Our children and possibly grandchildren are going to want to see pictures with us included as they get older.
This year I decided to do our family pictures at one of my favorite local places to shoot- Cooters Pond & Park in Prattville. When I learned that my mother-in-law would be visiting I was even more excited about the pictures! So with tripod in hand and with use of the camera timer we were able to capture some pretty nice family shots!
It is a lot of work to do this for myself and my family- but, it is so worth it in the end! As a received these printed images and looked over them my heart was filled with love and gratitude! I'm thankful that I did this this year and will continue to do this yearly!! I am so grateful that I am able to share in this experience with other families!

SENIOR MODEL CALL 2018
As a military spouse of 23 years, I am beyond grateful for our military and all the sacrifices its members and families make. Many businesses in Prattville along with my own (Jennifer Gracin Photography) are partnering with the Prattville Area Chamber of Commerce to celebrate Military Appreciation Week. If you haven't done your fall or holiday photos yet, now would be a great time to schedule a family photo session! Any retired, guard, or active duty military member who schedules a photoshoot during this week (Nov 5th - Nov 11th) will receive 50% of the session fee. The session fee is normally $295 and includes a pre-photoshoot consultation, 1-2 hour photo shoot at a location of your choice, in-person reveal/ordering session and a $200 print credit. Even with the 50% off you will still receive a credit for prints or products valued at $200. Thank you to all the military members out there and their families- especially a HUGE thank you to all the military children who I believe make the greatest sacrifice.
