The Sheffer Family

Every fall I photograph this family and the boys own me every single time. They are adorable, imaginative and spunky. In addition to all that cuteness, they have amazing hair! If you haven’t met them on the blog before, meet Luke, Nate and Sebastian…oh and their mom and dad, of course…

The Shaw Girls

I’ve been photographing these sisters since they were babies and have  loved watching them grow…all too quickly!  We got together yesterday afternoon for a quick session of headshots for an upcoming tryout the girls are doing. Good luck Bennett and Mae!

Julie, Vinnie, Claire and Luke

Julie Harper is my dermatologist, and in addition to trusting her with keeping my skin healthy  (I’m still trying to work my way up to 70 SPF though), she’s a really sweet person and I’ve enjoyed getting to know her over the last few years.

For a while now, Julie and I have been talking about photographing her family, and finally decided to do it this fall. What a beautiful and fun family! Vinnie was quite entertaining singing his version of “Oh When the Saints Go Marching In”! It got a great belly laugh from his kids…and me! I might need to pay him to come along on all my shoots and sing! Here are some highlights from our session together at the cabin. This spot has been very popular this fall. I love it!

 

The Murphree Family

I’ve known the Murphree family for years because we were at Briarwood Church together for a while and went on a couple trip to the mountains together. For years I would admire their baby daughter Belle on the nursery hall because she looked like a china doll. I have wanted to get my camera on this family because they are beautiful inside and out and I finally got my chance this fall. All three children are adorable and sweet! I was smitten!



The Chance Family

My session with the Chance family started off with a quick sprinkle of rain (which thankfully stopped) and a little frog, who was quickly named “Jumpy”. 

 

How do you ever say “no” to this cute pout?

 

 

Mary Virginia, Anne Louise & Tucker, a classic session

These adorable children belong to some very dear friends of ours. We’ve known Mandy and Keith since college, so I have loved watching their family grow. Here are a few of the images from our recent classic session at Birmingham Botanical Gardens…

A Classic Session of Adorableness!

For several years now, this sweet family drives from Tuscaloosa for me to take their portraits. I consider it such a privilege. Ellie was the first, and now now she is sharing the spotlight with her sisters Ann Barrett and Alex.

After driving in from out of town and battling the rain all afternoon, I hope Ashley sees from the images that it was all worth it! 😉 Glad we finally found our window of opportunity! These girls are as cute as baby dolls, and just as sweet too!

Sam, Luke & Harper

Lisa and I met through Bible Club at Vestavia West, where our kids are in school. What a sweet family and I hope we get to know each other better as our kids grow up in school together. Here are some images highlighting our session at Aldridge Gardens. These kids are ADORABLE!

And this next series of Lisa and Harper is why I keep my finger on the shutter. 3 very different expressions…love it!

Jack and Emily

I enjoyed meeting Jack and Emily and their mom Jan at Birmingham Botanical Gardens for our classic session together. They even brought along the family dog, which I always love! After all, pets are part of the family too!

Meet Mia

Frances has 9 beautiful grandchildren and she has entrusted me to capture each of them at 2 years old for a gallery in her home. Mia is Frances’ 6th grandchild I have photographed. She was like a little cherub!
