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 […]

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 […]

The Beales / Outdoor Family Session / Birmingham, AL

The Beale family really won me over right from the beginning!  As you can see, they brought their family pet, which I’m always a little hesitant about. It’s been my experience that animals are somewhat unpredictable and in photographs they can be a challenge; but as you can also see, this animal was so calm […]

A Mother and Her Children

This is such a special family. This sweet big sister couldn’t get enough hugs from her five month-old, squishy brother and their mother is sitting back taking it all in. It’s probably one of the hardest things to do as a mom-to live in and absorb the moment. We moms have to remind ourselves to […]

My Daughter, My Muse / Child Portraits

I’ve been photographing my daughter for over ten years. It sounds silly to say, “We know each other well,” but essentially that’s true. She’s a lot like I was as a child, but maybe times ten. We both love(d) to sing and dance, to perform for anyone willing to watch. She’s so comfortable in her […]
