Best Photographs of 2020 / Birmingham Photographer

January 1, 2021

2020-What a year! It was full of challenges in many ways; and we faced them in our social lives, within our families, and in our businesses. You don’t need me to list the hurdles of 2020 because they are painfully obvious to us all. Almost unbelievably, but definitely gratefully, Bang Images had its most successful […]

Sunset Family Photos / Birmingham Photographer

December 10, 2020

I had the honor of being asked to photograph these awesome people for their sunset family photos this fall! I met them two years ago when I photographed their wedding ceremony at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens.  I’ve developed a friendship with Melissa, the mom, through social media since photographing them in 2018. She’s also a […]

Fall Family Portraits / the Rotters

September 19, 2020

I get so excited when families that I’ve photographed before contact me again! It’s the ultimate compliment! Our first session started in their home and finished in a natural setting at a park nearby. This time the Rotters wanted something a little different so we chose two downtown locations. We started at the Pizitz, which […]

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 […]

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 […]

Tween Portrait Photographer / My Girls

July 14, 2020

I call these girls “my girls” because they’ve been friends for the past five years and spend a great deal of time at our house. Or at least they did. This pandemic has robbed us of so much. I know I’m not saying anything that hasn’t been said before, but in short, this sucks. But […]

Top 10 Smartest Decisions of an Alabama Photographer

June 18, 2020

I have been a photographer for over twenty years, and I’ve owned my own photography business for five years. Bang Images just celebrated its five year anniversary, so what better time to reflect over the top 10 smartest decisions of an Alabama photographer! I’ve been really fortunate in life to love both careers I’ve had […]

Fall Family Session / Birmingham Photographer / The Smiths

May 5, 2020

I post a lot photos of families with young children. They’re cute, lively, and honestly, most people that hire me to photograph their families are parents of young kids. I also photograph families with older and sometimes grown children. This particular family I’ve known for about fifteen years. I first photographed them almost a decade […]
