Why is photography so expensive? / Perspective of a Birmingham Photographer

Obviously I think photography is important, but even before I decided to turn my passion for photography into a career, I felt that way. Let’s think about why it’s important. Photography is the ultimate record keeper. Photographs are one way to make us feel beautiful and important. Although we may forget little details about our […]

Winter Portrait Session / Birmingham Botanical Gardens / Revelator Coffee / Carito

Winter portrait sessions are exciting! They’re a little unpredictable because you may get a sixty degree day with sun or a thirty degree day with rain; but I’ve learned to be flexible and if one idea doesn’t work well, we move onto another one. Carito and I met at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens https://www.bbgardens.org/ on a […]

Birmingham Couple’s Portrait Session / The Atomic Lounge / Xsuela and Jessica

Birmingham Sunset Photo Session / Marta

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 Portrait Photographer / 2018 Revisited

I long for creative collaboration; once an art student, always an art student. This blog […]

Birmingham, AL / Fall Portrait Session Among the Goldenrod / Aly

Exploration! Some may say that’s what life is all about-exploring the unknown and finding beauty in the unfamiliar. I’d love to think of myself as an adventurist, but I’m a little too practical for that. I do love scouting and finding new locations to photograph though and that’s exactly how Aly and I found ourselves […]

Outdoor Portrait Session / Birmingham, AL / Abby

On this first day of winter, The Winter Solstice of 2018, I can’t help but think about warmer days. As much as I’ve tried to appreciate winter, I’m just much more of a warm weather person. I love swimming, sunny days, and relaxed schedules. I enjoy living in Alabama because we do get to experience […]
