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.

A Weekend at the Hunting Camp

I love this sweet and beautiful family! Brad and I met Kelly and KaiVan twenty years ago at the gym…before we were all married…and before kids. We’ve been close friends ever since. The guys share a love of hunting and the girls share a love of fitness and teaching group exercise classes. Our kids are close in ages with similar interests, so we have a lot of fun when we can get away together and we try to do it every fall. I look forward to it every time.

In November Kelly & KaiVan invited us to their family hunting camp, “Nelson’s Landing”, named after their son. My husband (and son) had been there many times and told me about it, however this was my first time. I love Fall, but it is always extremely busy for me; so I have to hold onto one full weekend for rest and relaxation with my family. This was that weekend. Beautiful fall weather, long dirt roads, swamps of flooded timber, riverbanks and barges, fall color in the spanish moss covered trees, fires in the firepit, kids doing smores and swinging in the tree swing, grilling out steaks, shooting practice, and a little bit of deer, squirrel and pig hunting for the boys. Most important of all, our families all together having fun with no wifi service! (I admit, no wifi is a challenge for me…but good for me!)

While there, we planned to photograph the Greiner family. Much to our surprise, Kelly grabbed my camera and took some shots of our family. Unfortunately we weren’t planning on getting photos of us, so we rolled out of bed and no one had showered. (Insert laugh and sigh.) Thankfully, at least what we all wore coordinated. Next time I’ll be a little more prepared! But, I loved our family shot so much I used it on our Christmas card! We rarely get family photos because I’m always behind the camera. Thanks Kelly!

The last day it was just our family there. It was fun for my daughter and me to be in the woods with our boys on their adventures, and with my camera in hand to capture them in their element. Of course it wasn’t serious hunting that way, but I loved permission to get a peek inside their world.

Here’s some of my favorite images from our weekend together…from portraits, to candid moments and everything in between…

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 Smith Girls [Fall Mini Session]

Haisley and I have known each other for years. We worked together way before either of us had babies, so I love that I get to photograph her beautiful and sweet girls each fall. They are precious southern belles with piercing blue eyes!
