The Baker Family

Meet the beautiful Baker family! We met through some dear mutual friends, our kids have been in pre-school together, and we’ve spent weekends at the lake chatting around the pool while our kids splashed away. Alice Bell and I had been talking about a session for a while and finally got a date on the calendar. Then, I get a call a few weeks before we are supposed to shoot and Mary Myers has broken her arm. Without hope of getting her cast off anytime soon, we decide to embrace it as the photographs that will spark a “that was the year when…” story. It was a cute cast too — bright and cheery tie-dye! And, how cute are these girls — Maloy, Mary Myers and Chapel! Dustin and Alice Bell are going to have their hands full when these three get in high school! But, for now, you gotta love them in some pink and orange Hannah Kate!

The Smith Family

I’ve been having fun watching the Smith children grow up over the years and see their little personalities bloom! I first photographed Connor as a baby, then they moved to Dothan and Christi would come back to Birmingham for me to photograph Ella and Coby. Now, I’m glad they’re back in Birmingham again! Such a sweet and beautiful family who is always such a joy to work with.

The Dogan Family

Every fall Allison asks me to photograph her cute boys for the gallery in her home and for Christmas cards. I look forward to catching up with this sweet family and seeing how much Weldon and Hardy have grown in a year. They are so much fun!

The Wyatt Family

I enjoyed meeting the Wyatts and their precious baby boy Nathan. I know they are excited about his first Christmas! He is such a cutie and all smiles…especially when his parents gave me a tip to sing “Moves Like Jagger”! 😉

The Martin Family

Meet the Martin Family! How cute are these girls?! They were truly some of the happiest children I have ever had the privilege of photographing. Sadie and Sydney were all smiles and laughter the whole time.

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 Tate, Rachel & Kevin

Fall is in the air and it was a perfect afternoon for my session with these cute kids. They were so much fun!

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!
