Clara Kathryn’s First Birthday Portrait Session!

The sun was shining perfectly through the trees that day. The October sunshine was was out, but it was just cool enough to not sweat. The seasons in Alabama are tricky like that. It was the perfect day to capture Clara Kathryn’s first birthday portraits. Bromleigh had spent lots of time and energy planning and executing the perfect pinterest perfect look. She called it extra, but I called it perfect.

I first met Bromleigh and Jzyk, CK’s mom and dad, on their wedding day while I was second shooting video with my friend. I was just a stranger that day, but I vividly remember their foot washing ceremony during their golden hour fall wedding. It just spoke volumes to me about the kind of people these two are and how well they love and serve.

But this isn’t a blog about them! This is a blog about their sweet girl!

Clara Kathryn, you are so loved. I can tell from the social media posts all the way to how hard your mom worked to make this first birthday session just right. As you grow, always remember your mom and your dad are on your side. They’re your biggest cheerleaders. They’ll teach you what’s most important and what to let slide. Your mom will teach you how to be a Proverbs 31 woman and your dad will shape your view on God as our father. You are one blessed little girl to have such amazing parents! Here are some of my favorite pictures from our time celebrating you:

Part One: First Birthday Portraits

Part Two: Smash Cake

Love + Blessings,


PS- Bromleigh, I can’t thank you enough for these sweet words! I love serving families like yours, friend! I can’t wait to watch CK grow and capture your joy!
