Family Newborn Session / Birmingham, AL / the Lucias

It was a cool, cloudy morning, as many have been so far in Birmingham this year. It was surprisingly comfortable for February though and when I visited this sweet family, we were able to walk around outdoors a little. This was an At-home Session. It’s always such an honor to be invited into someone’s home […]

Birmingham At-Home Family Session / The Keels

You would never know by looking at the photos that they were photographed at someone’s home. When you think of an At-home Session, you may think of indoor photographs showcasing your life and your home. That’s what comes to mind naturally, but I am flexible!

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 […]

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 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.

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 […]

Family Maternity Session / Birmingham, AL / Water Session

You know what’s great? An expectant mother with a happy toddler playing in the water and me nearby with a camera! I’ve had many portrait sessions in the water, but this was my first family maternity session. These two radiated sheer joy. Every once in a while you are lucky enough to spend time with […]
