Birmingham Family Photo Session | Botanical Gardens | Bang Images

September 15, 2021

Family Photography One of the first genres of photography that I became interested in so many years ago was family photography. I had just had my first child (who’s now 18) and we lived in this incredible little neighborhood, surrounded by other families with children near our son’s age. It made sense. It was my […]

First and Possibly Only Headshot Day | Bang Images

August 22, 2021

Hey, hey, hey! I’m hosting my first and possibly only Headshot Day! The idea of photographing headshots used to make me cringe, but that’s probably because I was thinking of the traditional, stiff, headshots, set-up with a lackluster backdrop, and a flashing strobe. I shied away too because of the posed nature of headshots. I […]

Client Tips for Great Photo Sessions | Bang Images

August 17, 2021

Reading client tips for great photo sessions can be more effective than reading my advice as a photographer.

I’ve collected […]

Family Photo Session Tips | Bang Images

July 9, 2021

I’m a portrait photographer. I took my first photography class in college 25 years ago.

The Quirky Intro: Bang Images is your Birmingham photographer! There’s nothing like starting off a blog post with a Jedi Mind Trick. You just never know, right?

Creative Portraits of a Wild Woman | Bang Images

June 23, 2021

The Location Chloe and I didn’t jump right into photographing with the mimosas, but they are the reason we chose this particular location. I’m sure you know the trees I’m speaking of-they’re the invasive, Dr. Seuss-looking ones that come to life in the spring with pink, fuzzy, fantail blooms. They draw me in every year, […]

Family Photos at Home | Bang Images

June 8, 2021

Occasionally I’m invited into a family’s home to photograph them. It’s an honor to be trusted to create such important memories in your most intimate space with your children, pets, and family heirlooms. More often than not, it’s a time to capture family members interacting with one another naturally i.e. playing both indoors and outdoors, […]

Sensual Spring Portraits in Birmingham | Bang Images

May 24, 2021

Choosing the title of a post is always one of the trickiest parts of writing a blog. I love alliteration, so sometimes that’s what I settle on. “They” say to think of something eye catching that entices someone want to click on your post, but the title should also contain relevant key words. Not hard […]
