Keighlee & Brent

I was so excited to get to photograph this Keighlee and Brent, who are newlyweds just shy of their one year anniversary. Love that they brought along their pup too! Keighlee was my daughter’s 5th grade teacher and she was quite the rock star! My daughter had to come along on the shoot “to help”. Definitely one of those teachers she will always remember fondly. Thanks Mrs. Buchanan!

The Myers Family

The Myers family and our family both go to Shades Mountain Baptist Church, yet somehow we had never met before their session. I so enjoyed meeting them and hearing about their family’s work with the foster care and adoption ministry at our church. Their youngest daughters Aubrey and Ava are precious gifts from that ministry! What a sweet and beautiful family with hearts of gold!

 

Oh how I loved their hats!

The Kurtz Family

This sweet family just moved to Birmingham from Virginia and I’m thrilled they chose me as their photographer. I know they are going to love the Magic City and all that it has to offer. It’s such a great place to call home.

My original session with the Kurtz family had to be rescheduled due to the recent rain and flooding; so we were thankful to be blessed this time with a beautiful spring afternoon and dreamy light.  Little Liam wasn’t as excited about photos as his sisters were. He was more concerned with pushing around one of his trains, so I just followed him around while he played. It made me smile because it reminded me so much of my Luke at that age. Liam did, however, love to photo bomb at just the right time!

I love that this family was so relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera, allowing me the freedom to capture their personalities and connections in the images.

Brenna’s Urban Senior Session [Morris Ave & Railroad Park]

A few weekends ago Brenna and her family drove over from Tuscaloosa for me to shoot her Senior portraits. She wanted a different look than what her peers were doing in her hometown, so we decided on the urban settings of Morris Avenue and Railroad Park. We were blessed with gorgeous weather for walking around downtown Birmingham on a Sunday afternoon!

Adelaide & Winnie

Haisley and I met years ago when we worked for a magazine publisher. I liked her immediately because she invited me (the new girl) to lunch on my very first day there. I remember thinking that was about the nicest thing you could do for a new employee to make them feel welcome. I loved that job and we have had the best time working together over the years. I’ve photographed Adelaide, but this was my first time to meet Haisley and Carlton’s new little blessing, Winnie. These girls are so sweet, with naturally rosy cheeks and big beautiful blue eyes that catch the light in an amazing way!
