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!

Highlights from 2017 [Birmingham, AL] Fall Portrait Mini Sessions

Every year I enjoy heading back to my hometown of Birmingham for my annual weekend(s) of Fall Portrait Mini Sessions. It’s fun to recconect with loyal clients who, over the years, have become friends as I’ve watched their children grow up through my lens. I also enjoy meeting new clients. Fall Mini Session dates and online booking is announced each year the first week of August, so mark your calendars to grab your spot. Here are some of my favorite images from the Birmingham sessions. And, you can see the Franklin, TN Mini Sessions here. HDP-Dennis-4_-WEB.jpg

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.

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)

Flake Girls Mini Session

Stay tuned for Birmingham Fall Mini Session dates to be announced this week. Limited availability and online  booking through the website. Here’s one of my favorite sessions from last fall…

Lisa and I have known each other for years and it’s aways a privilege and a pleasure to photograph the homes she designs. So, I was excited when she asked me to photograph her beautiful girls last fall. Not only are these blondies cute, they are super sweet too. Love what we captured in my favorite creek…

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!

Nolan is One!

I met Anna a few years ago when she asked me to photograph her adorable nephew who was in town.  She truly is the sweetest soul, so I was excited when she asked me to photograph she and her husband Ben when she was pregnant with Nolan and then last month when Nolan turned one! He’s a doll face and super duper smart. He was moving my hand to scroll through his photos on the back of my camera. Did I mention he’s only one!? And, oh those baby blues!

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.
