Ashley & Peter Engaged!

Ashley has babysit my kids some, and they love her because she’s fun and especially because one time she whipped up some homemade icing when she was here. Yeah, treats are the fast way to become my kids’ favorite babysitter. When Ashley called me to tell me she is getting married and wanted me to photograph her engagement session I was beyond thrilled. Congratulations Ashley and Peter and best wishes!

The Carney Family

The Carneys had just moved to Birmingham from Auburn, so I was excited when they called me to photograph their little family. Abby Kate was on the move so I did a lot of chasing to capture her exploring the barn and cabin! We were blessed with the most incredible afternoon light for this precious little girl and I’m crazy about the images from this session.

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 Crawford Family

This sweet family drove from Tuscaloosa for me to photograph them. When they got to the session and we started chatting, we realized that we have so many mutual friends. I love meeting new people and it’s such a small world, y’all!

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.

The Hurst Family

This was my first time to meet the Hurst family, even though we have so many mutual friends. Stacy won the session I donated to the Vestavia Schools Foundation silent auction. I enjoyed getting to know them during our afternoon at the cabin. Such a cute family!
