Every year my husband and I travel back to Birmingham and visit old friends. This year I had the pleasure of photographing my long time friend Maggie and her beautiful family. We met at the Birmingham Botanical Garden and had a fun afternoon full of sunshine and warmer weather. Her daughter is so full of life and energy and was so much fun to work with. Her photos came out absolutely beautifully and I am so excited to see her babies grow up! 

I met the Allen family at the Ellendale Fall Festival this past October. I had a booth set up and Ann stopped by to grab a card. She wanted family photos with her husband, daughters, son in law, and granddaughter. She wanted somewhere private and outdoors where they could relax and open up to the camera. The morning we met it was 25 degrees outside but you couldn’t tell looking at the photos. We made the best of the cold and had such a blast laughing together. The Allen family was so sweet and such a pleasure to work with!

I just looked at my blog posts from last year and realized how long it has been since I updated! This past fall and winter were amazingly crazy and blessed for my business. From August through December I was booked solid almost every single weekend. I can’t thank everyone enough for your business and support. I am so excited to see what 2015 has in store for me!

I met Brittany and her fiancé Jay for their pre-consultation and instantly fell in love with this vivacious couple. They were so fun fun to be around and their energy was contagious. They wanted a rural setting that complemented their country style, so the location was an easy choice. The session flew by and we stayed until the last ray of sunlight ducked behind the trees. I am so happy with the way their photos turn out and wish them much love and happiness in the future!!

In 2015 I have decided to offer an additional package- Baby’s First Year. Most parents want to document their child’s milestones and capture everything their baby has learned to do within his or her first year! The baby’s first year package is a great way to do this. It includes your newborn, 6 month, 9 month, and one year (plus cake smash, client supplies the cake) sessions. You get one 16×20 canvas collage- client picks favorite photo from each session. Clients will also receive a bonus Facebook Cover Timeline photo from each session. You will also have the option to purchase additional prints and digital files from each of your session. This package is $300, please make sure  you contact me to book if you are interested, this way we can get a tentative date in my calendar for each session.

Back in October I shot Brittany and Jerrod Melcher’s wedding. It was the first time I have seen a wedding with a peacock theme and was so excited for the bold colors! Their guestbook was a hand sketched peacock where guests left stamped fingerprints on the feathers. There were so many small and personal touches applied to the decorations and from the candy table to the bouquet toss everything was laced with fun energy and loud laughter. Brittany wanted her photos to be a little different than the standard all posed formal pictures, so I rented a fisheye lens for the day and we all had some fun goofing around.

One of Brittany’s brothers is in the military and stationed in Hawaii, unfortunately he couldn’t make it to the wedding but skyped with his mother during the ceremony so that he could witness it. I was so happy that I was able to record a video of him sending well wishes to his sister and new brother in law, it is something that I know she will cherish. Best of luck Brittany and Jerrod, I know your future will be full of love and laughter!
