Welcome to the World, Ann Dozier!

A month or so ago I had the great pleasure of photographing newborn Ann Dozier and her beautiful family at their home in Crestline. Here are a few of my favorite images. HDP-Corr-109_-WEB.jpg

The Levin Family

A few years ago I photographed the Levin family at their beautiful Lake Martin home. So, I was excited when they asked me to photograph them again as their sons, daughter in laws and granddaughters all gathered at their home in Birmingham for Thanksgiving. The Levins are such kind people with adorable kids/grandkids. Clearly they have a great deal to be thankful for!

The Montgomery Family

It’s such a privilege to watch these beautiful twin girls grow up through my lens. For this session in their pink heirloom dresses, we met at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens. The girls found two rolly pollys that Mom and Dad thought were a distraction to getting good portraits, but I love what those little creatures added to the images to capture their personalities. Such a sweet Birmingham family!

ANNOUNCING Fall 2017 Portrait Mini Sessions!

I love getting back into the roots of my business every fall. Kids & Family Portraits is how it all started for me over 14 years ago, so every year in the fall I offer Portrait Mini Sessions…both in Franklin, TN and Birmingham, AL. It allows me to reconnect with so many clients whose kids I’ve watched grow up though my lens as they’ve helped grow my business. I also love the opportunity it gives me to meet new families. Portrait Minis are a great value, because it’s the only time during the year that the print minimum is waived and 5 digital files are included with the session, helping you easily update your family photos and profile pictures, and YES get Christmas cards checked off the list!

Online booking opens Tuesday, August 1st at 8:00 AM sharp. For more information and to book online, go to the website.

The Clarke Family [Franklin, TN Family Portrait Session]

I just met this beautiful and precious family in August but I feel like I’ve known them longer. They moved to Franklin from Birmingham, a few months before we did, to plant a church. Sean is the pastor of Five Stones Church, a church plant of Church of the Highlands. Rhiannon, his wife, is my small group leader, we all live in the same neighborhood, and our daughters take dance together. We’re kinda doing this transition thing together. And, yes, I’m glad our lives have intertwined in only a few short months. I’m super thankful God orchestrated it!

I had the privilege of photographing Sean, Rhiannon and kids this past fall, and we were blessed with gorgeous fall color and dreamy light bouncing around my camera lens. If only I could bottle up that light and carry it around with me every day, I’d be one happy girl!

The Hines Family Snow Photo Session [Franklin TN]

Holly was one of the first people I met in my neighborhood after moving in. I felt like I was living in a fishbowl when we moved into our house, so someone referred me to her for window shades and she hooked me up with some privacy! Since then she’s taken me to my first Downtown Franklin First Friday Art Crawl and we’ve worked some here in the neighborhood together. Holly’s a Franklin native that really knows how to make the new girl feel welcome! She’s a sweetheart and her kids are delightful too!

I loved spending a little time with this cute family on our first snow day in Tennessee.

The Wright Family

Evan won the Vestavia Elementary West Auction donation, and I enjoyed turning my camera on this pretty family. Her spirited 3 year old named Alice, owned me with her red hair, bright blue eyes, dimples and cute pout! She wasn’t in the mood for pictures, but I “get”  and absolutely love a red head (since I have one of my own) so I also got what I wanted and I’m including a lot of them in this post so you can see her fun personality.  And as you will also see, Alice’s brother and sister, Addie and Asher, are just as adorable.

Dillon Family Mini Session

I’m a little late posting this shoot, but better late than never. I loved the opportunity to turn my camera on these blondies. Such a beautiful and sweet family!
