Highlights from 2017 [Franklin, TN] Fall Mini Sessions

Happy New Year! Christmas cards have all been mailed, opened and posted on the fridge. Gifts have been exchanged and holidays have been celebrated. Bowl games have been watched, the ball has dropped, and now I can share highlights from my Fall 2017 Mini Sessions in Franklin, TN and Birmingham, starting with Franklin sessions that I shot in historic and quaint Leipers Fork. I will follow up with a separate post for Birmingham portrait sessions.

Kids and family portrait sessions are how I started my business 15 years ago, so it’s always fun to shoot what began it all for me. This year, there were new clients and returning clients in front of my lens…so many beautiful families, kids, couples and pups! Mark your calendars for the first week of August when I will announce Fall 2018 Mini Sessions dates on social media and online booking through my website. In the meantime, here are some highlights from Fall 2017 in Franklin. And, you can see Birmingham, AL Fall Minis here.

The Dills & Their Grandkids (Fall Mini Session)

Oh how I love this sweet family! Brooke and I have been close friends since high school cheerleading tryouts, so I spent a lot of time at her parents’ house and with them on beach trips. They’ve watched me grow up with their own kids and I’ve watched their grandkids grow up.  They are just one of those families that is a thread woven throughout my life. Not only are they beautiful on the outside, but more importantly they are beautiful on tinside. It was such a privilege to capture the 3 generations with my camera.

Stuart

I photographed this little guy last fall and couldn’t believe how much he’d grown and changed in just a year. Adorable blondie with amazing blue eyes!! And the sweetest thing you can imagine!

The Dogan Family

I have loved getting to know this family over the years and they have become near and dear to my heart. Every year I get the privilege of photographing them and seeing how much these boys have grown. Aren’t they the cutest?! This year we had to get their sweet grandmother and her cat in the shot. After all, they are so much a part of the family too!

The Youngblood Family

Funny how you can be in the same community and same school and not know a family. I enjoyed getting to know the Youngblood family at our mini session. The girls looked adorable in their outfits and the little one was super spunky. Cuteness!

Freddy, Leah & their Fur Babies

I’ve known Freddy since high school days, but hadn’t seen him in years. So, it was so fun that he asked me to photograph him with his wife Leah and their two dogs, whom they love like children. Heather Durham Photography, Birmingham Alabama kids and families photo sessionHeather Durham Photography, Birmingham Alabama kids and families photo sessionHeather Durham Photography, Birmingham Alabama kids and families photo sessionHeather Durham Photography, Birmingham Alabama kids and families photo sessionHeather Durham Photography, Birmingham Alabama kids and families photo sessionHeather Durham Photography, Birmingham Alabama kids and families photo sessionHeather Durham Photography, Birmingham Alabama kids and families photo session

The Miller Family [Fall Mini Session]

Mandy and I have known each other since college, and were in Sunday School together for years, so I love every opportunity to get to photograph this precious family.

The Snowden Family

The Snowden family won the silent auction session I donated to the Vestavia Hills Foundation fundraiser, Dinner and Diamonds. They decided to use it for their fall session to get images for their Christmas cards. This is such a great family, and Harper, their little red head owns me. Y’all know how much I love a red head since I have one of my own! What a beautiful fall afternoon with amazing afternoon light at the cabin!
