Birmingham Photographer / Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes and the Pandemic

September 13, 2020

Here we are. It’s September 2020 and fall is knocking on our door. We’ve experienced six months of the first pandemic of our lives and quarantining to some degree (some definitely more than others). It’s been hard, gruesome even at times, but that’s certainly a very relative-to-your-situation type of description. At our home, we’re truly […]

Portraits of a Mississippi Man / Quin

September 12, 2020

Quin drove all the way from Mississippi to meet me for a portrait session. When I say I was flattered that he’d bother driving 8 hours in a day to have me photograph him, I really mean it! What a compliment! He was an absolute joy to photograph-so much laughter and lightheartedness filled the air. […]

September 7, 2020

If you’re reading this, you may be a photographer and you may be considering whether or not to quit your dependable 9-5 job and dive into the photography field. You may have years of experience using a camera, or perhaps you’ve only recently started taking photos, but you have a real knack for it. Whatever […]

Birmingham LGBT Portrait Session, Bang Images

August 20, 2020

Mercedes and Britany contacted me several months ago after getting married but not being able to have a wedding due to the pandemic. They were determined to at the very least have a portrait session to commemorate the big event. They already had a place in mind (Birmingham Rotary Trail) and had coordinated the clothing […]

Being Prepared for Your Photo Session / Birmingham Photographer

August 11, 2020

The busiest time of the year for me as a primarily outdoor Birmingham photographer is the fall. It’s certainly beautiful with an array of bold colors at every turn and it feels great outside! Being photographed can be hard for some, a little uncomfortable for others, and for a select few-a really good time. So, […]

Birmingham Botanical Gardens Family Session

August 8, 2020

I had the wonderful pleasure of meeting this family for a Birmingham Botanical Gardens family session just a few weeks ago. Summer isn’t usually as busy for outdoor portraits because, let’s face it, we live in Alabama, and in July and August it can often be unbearable outdoors. We’ve been pretty lucky though lately and […]

Birmingham Photographer / Frequently Asked Questions

July 27, 2020

  I think photographers get asked many of the same questions. Some are pretty general, and others are more specific about that particular photographer’s practices, equipment, and style. These are the most frequently asked questions that I’ve received. What is an On-location Session? I will meet you at an agreed upon location, such as a […]

LGBT Affirming Photographer / Kyle in Summer

July 22, 2020

I try to be as transparent as possible, and I hope I’m presenting a clear message. Bang Images is an LGBT affirming photographer. On the last day of Pride Month, June 2020, Kyle and I created some beautiful outdoor portraits together. Kyle exudes confidence, but he’s not unapproachable. In fact, he is one of the […]

Alabama Couple’s Session / Andrea and Chris

July 20, 2020

It’s always an honor to be hired by someone who’s excited about your work and it’s especially cool when the person hiring you is a photographer themselves. What a compliment! I was asked by a fellow photographer and friend to photograph her and her boyfriend in their first couple’s session. They already had a location […]
