Rachel greeted me at the front door on a hot Saturday afternoon in August with a smile on her face. But that’s nothing new, as Rachel is always smiling! She welcomed me into their home, a place she and Brett are so happy to be settled into with Baby Samuel! It was a great day […]

Baby Samuel’s at Home Family Lifestyle Session

I was ten minutes away from The Sunflower Field when the sky turned black in the distance. There had been no rain on the radar all day long. Casey’s makeup was flawless. Her hair was perfectly done, with just a hint of baby’s breath tucked in the back. She was wearing the most beautiful custom […]

Casey + Eddie’s Alabama Sunflower Field Maternity Session

I pulled into Downtown Birmingham and parked easily. Normally it takes a lap or two around the block and requires a parallel park before I can snag a spot. Normally I have to walk a little. But times aren’t normal. Living in the times of Covid-19, there’s a lot of abnormal. There has been so […]

Tiara + Ryan’s Downtown Birmingham, AL Engagement Session

This school year didn’t end like anyone had planned it. All our favorite Mountain Chapel Preschool spring traditions didn’t get to happen. No music program, no art show, no class picture, no May Day Play Day. I cried and grieved when Dixon’s last year of preschool abruptly came to an unexpected and shortened end. Like […]

Dixon’s Preschool Graduation Pictures

Carly and I were reliving some of the best farm memories from growing up. Carly + Nick were engaged and it was time to celebrate their love in a special way! When […]

From their wedding, to pregnancy announcement and Annmarie’s fresh 48, it’s been SO MUCH FUN documenting the best of memories for Lauren + Joey. Sweet friends, how are […]

Annmarie is ONE!

Initially Ashlee had kept Josh at a distance when they met at school. But when car trouble struck and her dad couldn’t get to her, Josh was quick to rescue her. Not only did he rescue her, but he did so in the pouring rain in a full suit! It was after he took such […]

Josh + Ashlee’s Intimate Smith Lake Wedding

The lightning struck in the distance. Audrey + Matt exchanged nervous glances and looked back to me. I said a quick prayer in my head for the weather to calm down and for our safety. There was no rain on the radar, but the thunder boomed, threatening our plans. We had a two year anniversary […]

A UAB Anniversary Session with Audrey + Matt

I can’t believe I’m finally sitting down to blog images that aren’t old or aren’t of my family! It’s been a long, weird spring. We’ve been quarantined due to Covid 19 and things are just settling into a new normal. I was so excited to capture a perfect golden hour family session for the McCain […]

A Birmingham, AL Family Portrait Session with the McCain Family

Last summer, we had the best maternity pictures taken with my friend Kensi of Magnolia Photography! There’s a super fun Insta Story saved with my behind the scenes. Because we are in quarantine and James is almost nine months old, I figured it was time to share!
