Forsyth Park

Forsyth Park Family Session | Savannah, Ga | laurie schultz photography

Growing up in Savannah I imagine must feel like a fairytale for a little girl.  Especially, when you've hit the jackpot with amazing parents.  This sweet family contacted me to take some photos right before welcoming baby #2 into the world.  I loved walking around this gorgeous park, that they frequent so often,  and capturing moments for them that I know their kids will treasure for years to come.  

As a side note:  these photos were taken just a few weeks after Hurricane Matthew came barreling through Savannah, Ga.  This was my first trip back to this iconic park since the storm, and I was so surprised and saddened to see it still in disarray.  Many sections of this park are still roped off because of downed trees.  I was so glad though that we were able to make our way around the park still and find nooks and crannies that are still magical every time you come back.  

Souvenirs| Savannah, Ga Travel Session| laurie schultz photography

When you go on vacation, what is your favorite souvenir to bring back?  For me, I always look for a magnet that reminds me of something from our trip.  So everytime I open the fridge at home, I'm reminded of all these fun vacations we've taken and memories made.  

I probably will always look for a magnet on vacation, but when this family contacted me to document their vacation in Savannah, I was thrilled!  How brilliant is it to hire a photographer while on vacation?  I mean duh!  Why have I never thought of this?  The point of souvenirs are to trigger memories, so what better souvenir than actual photographs of experiences?!  I don't know about you, but when I look back at photographs from vacations it absolutely takes me back to those moments.  So, if you are vacationing in Savannah or in the surrounding me!  My absolute favorite thing to document are special moments for families.  

This adorable family and I clicked right away.  Mom actually found me on Instagram, connected with my work and booked me soon after!  This made me all sorts of giddy, I love when clients really "get" me.  As we strolled through forsyth park, chatted it up, and got lost in the gorgeous morning light I began to wish that this awesome family lived in Savannah!  This was their first trip to Savannah, but I have a feeling that they will be back again soon (at least I hope so).  Take a peek at what vacationing in Savannah looks like...
