Bailey’s Senior Session

I’m a little behind on blogging, but this one is worth the wait. I’m super excited to finally post Bailey’s senior session. We were blessed with amazing rim light on this gorgeous ginger. Congratulations to Bailey for pledging a great sorority at Auburn! She’s got a fun four years ahead of her! (MUAH: Brittany Massey)

Clair’s Senior Session

Clair is one of my close friend’s daughter, so it was a privilege to do her senior session last fall at beautiful Pursell Farms. Her mom, Emily, was the one who helped me get my start in wedding photography so I will always be grateful to her. Plus, she’s one of the easiest to be around and funniest people I know.

Clair is just like her mom, beautiful inside and out and she’s headed to Auburn in the fall with an exciting four years ahead of her. I’m a little late posting, but hers is one of my very favorite senior sessions to date. It was such a gorgeous afternoon at Pursell Farms and all of the gorgeous fall scenery was perfect compliment for this ginger!

Congratulations and much love Clair!! Can’t wait to visit when your mom and I are shooting weddings in Auburn together!

Alexis’ Senior Session

I had the best time with Alexis at her Senior Session. She was such a natural in front of the camera and super sweet! I wish her all the best as her senior year comes to a close. So many exciting experiences ahead!

Rachel’s Senior Session at the Creek

I absolutely love creek sessions. The light there is incredibly dreamy, filtered and reflective. Rachel’s senior session was so much fun and she completely trusted me…even when I asked her to sit down in the creek in her white dress. I think the images we got were worth getting a little wet.

Leah’s Senior Session

I loved this session that was a little bit country and a little bit urban! After a few shots with dreamy light at a nearby cabin and barn, Leah, her mom and I roamed all around downtown Birmingham for the rest of her senior session. You’ll see Morris Ave, Sloss Furnace (in the distance), and Railroad Park. We even stayed until Twilight (my favorite time of night) to get her in front of the, now iconic, BIRMINGHAM sign at Regions Field. Birmingham really is great a great city to live and shoot in, y’all!

Madeline’s Senior Session

I’ve known sweet and beautiful Madeline since she was born, so when her mom asked me to photograph her senior session I was thrilled! Her aunt and I have been close friends since high school and their entire family is precious to me.  Madeline knew what style and look she wanted for her session and we had a perfect afternoon at the farm, and beautiful light.

Right when we started shooting, a boy who worked on the farm drove by in his old powder blue Chevy truck. I stopped him and asked if we could use it for a few shots. He graciously and kindly agreed, even though he had been working all day and was on his way home. I think his exact words were, “Sure! That’ll be the prettiest girl that’s ever sat in my truck.” I’m in love with Madeline’s images…and I’ll warn you, there’s a lot. We were having too much fun to stop shooting!

Elizabeth’s Senior Session

Elizabeth just graduated from Vestavia Hills High School and is Bama bound! Loved photographing her senior session last month when the wildflower and clover fields were blooming in all their glory. We were blessed with perfect weather and dreamy light too! Wishing Elizabeth all the best as she goes through rush and begins her freshman year at Alabama. Roll Tide!

Lorin, High School Senior Photo Session

I enjoyed meeting and getting to know Lorin and her mom as we roamed around Chelsea, AL for her senior session. She’s a beautiful girl and I thought it was fun that she wanted to include softball, her high school sport, at the end of our shoot. Lorin, High School Senior Photography in a fieldLorin, High School Senior Photography in a fieldLorin, High School Senior Photography in a fieldLorin, High School Senior Photography in a fieldLorin, High School Senior Photography in a fieldLorin, High School Senior Photography in a fieldLorin, High School Senior Photography in a fieldLorin, High School Senior Photography in a fieldLorin, High School Senior Photography in a field
