It was a cool, cloudy morning, as many have been so far in Birmingham this year.

Winter Portrait Session / Birmingham Botanical Gardens / Revelator Coffee / Carito

Winter portrait sessions are exciting! They’re a little unpredictable because you may get a sixty degree day with sun or a thirty degree day with rain; but I’ve learned to be flexible and if one idea doesn’t work well, we move onto another one.

Alabama / Dog Reunion / Orr Park

I recently received a message from a former client and was asked to photograph the reunion of a dog and its family. In short, the dog was separated from its family and had been treated inhumanely by the person keeping him; in fact, I can’t even share the image of sweet Sven before he was […]
