Creative Studio Portraits / Birmingham Photographer

January 22, 2021

Making the decision to begin photographing in a studio was a challenging one for me; but as you’re aware, it’s quite uncomfortable outside most days in the winter and it really did seem like the next logical step to growing my portrait business. I’ve always primarily been an outdoor photographer, which has given me a […]

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.

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).

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!

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 […]
