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.

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!

The Schick Kids

I loved getting to photograph these beautiful kids this year. Their mom, Jennifer, and I met years ago at Briarwood Church, and over the years we have worked on our kids’ Bible Clubs together. Such a sweet family…and really photogenic kids with amazingly bright eyes!

The Lehane Girls

Whew! I’m just now coming up from air since early October. Fall was super busy and I have two weddings in December, but I’m hoping to get a little caught up on the blog before the end of the year. I can’t believe Christmas is in just a few days! Yikes! Thank goodness for online shopping!

Here’s the Lehane girls. They were so sweet and looked adorable in their Matilda Jane outfits, perfect for a fall session at the cabin and barn.
