I will meet you at an agreed upon location, such as a public park for a natural setting or in downtown Birmingham for a city setting for our session.


I will travel to your home for a session. These sessions are relaxed and wonderful for newborns. They're also perfect for anyone not wanting to venture outdoors in the winter or summer months for a session. The first twenty-five miles from my home to yours are included in the price. Mileage after 25 miles is $.55 per mile, which will be added to your total.  


Returning clients receive a 10% deduction on session fee (choices A or B); this is called a Grateful Gift.

If you purchase all the culled and edited digital files from a session or wedding, and then you decide to place an order for printed images, you'll receive 10% off the print order total.

I don't normally offer mini-sessions. Short sessions do not work well with my photography style.  My creativity feels stifled by being rushed, and my goal is to produce artful images for you.

At-home Session?

Yes, I do! Pricing for files and prints can be found on the pricing page. Please request pricing for albums. 

10% sales tax is included in the total of all tangible goods and includes the most commonly purchased: digital files, prints, and albums. 

I like the words BOLD, REAL, and CONTAGIOUS EMOTION. I love rich color and contrast. My approach to family and wedding photography is very natural with little interruption and posing. Portraits of couples and individuals do require a little more interaction on my part. My goal is to create interesting images with an artful approach that don't feel stiff.  

I've been photographing with Nikon equipment for about ten years. I have three Nikon D750's and an assortment of lenses ranging in focal lengths from 14 mm-200 mm. The variety of lenses allow me to photograph up close in an intimate way as is common in my family photography and to photograph from far away if needed, such as during a wedding.

What type of equipment do you use?

I took my first photography class in college; graduated with two bachelor degrees, with one in photography; taught school for fifteen years; and resigned from teaching in 2015 to begin Bang Images. It's been 25 years since that first photography class!


I have been photographing weddings with a very talented photographer, Andi Rice, for four years. He photographs about 80% of my weddings with me. If he's unavailable, I have two other photographers I rely on. All of my second shooters are professionals, not photographers in training. 

Even though I consider my approach to wedding photography more documentary than posed, there is a portion of the wedding day reserved for posed portraits. 

Since switching from film to digital photography, I tend to overshoot. It's almost silly not too. You will not receive every image. Instead, you will have a gallery full of professionally culled and edited images. You won't be given duplicates, photos that are blurry, over or underexposed, or incredibly unflattering captures; I will spare you the pain of looking through those. Your gallery will be artistically and professionally curated to feature the best images from your session or wedding day.

How would you describe your photography style? 

What type of equipment
do you use?

I deliver an average of 75 images per hour of photographing. This means from a two hour session,  there will be an average of 150 images in your gallery. Many factors determine the number of images.

It takes two weeks from the date of a session to receive a link to view your gallery of images. It takes eight weeks to fully edit a wedding gallery. You will be sent a link via email to view your own password-protected gallery. 

When you purchase digital files, you are purchasing the opportunity to print images, create an album, post photos online, or any other personal use you can think of. I will retain the official copyright or ownership of the images.
