Birmingham Family Photographer / 365 Project / 2018 Favorites

For roughly ten years I’ve thought about a 365 Daily Photo Project, but I was afraid of the commitment. It’s a huge personal responsibility to remember to document every single day. I mean, it’s not huge like, “Did I remember to feed the children?” but it felt burdensome on occasion. Overall though, it was really […]

Birmingham Portrait Photographer / 2018 Revisited

It’s impossible not to become reflective at the end of a year and I think it’s a healthy practice to evaluate the good and the not so good; growth is important. 2018 was one of my busiest business years yet. I long for creative collaboration; once an art student, always an art student. This blog […]

Birmingham, AL / Fall Portrait Session Among the Goldenrod / Aly

Exploration! Some may say that’s what life is all about-exploring the unknown and finding beauty in the unfamiliar. I’d love to think of myself as an adventurist, but I’m a little too practical for that. I do love scouting and finding new locations to photograph though and that’s exactly how Aly and I found ourselves […]

Outdoor Portrait Session / Birmingham, AL / Abby

On this first day of winter, The Winter Solstice of 2018, I can’t help but think about warmer days. As much as I’ve tried to appreciate winter, I’m just much more of a warm weather person. I love swimming, sunny days, and relaxed schedules. I enjoy living in Alabama because we do get to experience […]

Birmingham Fall Family Photos / Moss Rock Preserve / Jill and Keith

If you’re ever in a bad mood, look at a baby. Notice how they’re fascinated by the slightest breeze, sound, and silly face. Watch them giggle, kick their legs, and bounce in excitement. Live in the moment with a child; their happiness and innocence are a thing of real wonder. Jill, Keith, and I met […]

Alabama Engagement Photographer / Wild Fields and Abandoned Buildings / Clarissa and Jon

I was asked to photograph the engagement session of one of my favorite Birmingham models. My answer was an emphatic YES! I’ve gotten to photograph Clarissa two other times and both were with such ease and creativity, I knew her engagement session would be equally wonderful. We had similar interests in locations, something wild, something […]

Birmingham Photographer / Black Friday Sale / At-home Sessions

I’ve never physically participated in a Black Friday Sale. I don’t think it’s really in my personality make up to purposefully thrust myself into a crowd, throwing elbows, and grabbing at coveted items all around me. Nah. I do my Black Friday shopping from the comfort of my computer chair with a cup of decaf […]

Pizitz Building / Avondale Park / Engagement Session / Sushma and Sal

I’m not sure I can adequately express how much I loved this engagement session so I’ll probably let the photographs tell most of the story. Here are a few details though. Sushma and Sal wanted to begin with an urban feel for their photos so we thought about several different locations before deciding to meet […]

Kress Building Wedding / Birmingham, AL / Tina and Stuart

I’ve known Tina for about five years; we met in my previous life as a teacher. I liked her immediately, but after working with her, I liked her even more. We have a few things in common-she’s vegan (I’m the less dedicated version-vegetarian); we were both art majors in college; and she stepped in just […]
