Durham Family - Birmingham, Alabama Family & Child Photography

While I appreciate the posed shots, I love the raw emotion that comes with a lifestyle session. And when it comes to unscripted giggles, this session delivered in full. I LOVED meeting this sweet family.

Krogsgard Family - Birmingham, Alabama Family & Child Photography

I had a packed week. They had one day they could meet. We had 1 hour before the sun went down. What could have been a stressful session turned into so much fun. With giggles and running around, this sunset park shoot was amazing!

Blackman Family - Birmingham, Alabama Family & Child Photography

This sweet girl's holiday session coincided with her first birthday week! I was so glad it did because it meant that I got to also shoot her 1st birthday outfit! Does not matter what she is wearing, this girl is always cute!

Holaday Family - Birmingham, Alabama Newborn, Child, & Family Photography

Part family session. Part child session. Part newborn session. This shoot was so so so much fun! At the very end, they said they wanted one more set of pictures and pulled up an old car that the patriarch of the family build himself. Swoon!

The Green Family - Birmingham, Alabama Family & Child Photography

What better way to honor all of the golfers in his family than to shoot his 1st birthday session on a golf course. Unfortunately, he did not share our enthusiasm when we popped on his custom birthday hat. However... we will be forever grateful to the greens keeper who just happened to drive by at that exact moment and stopped to make him laugh. 

4th of July Session - Birmingham, Alabama Family & Child Photography

I know it is the 7th of July but I am still reliving the magic of the 4th. There is something about bbqs, fireworks, and the heat of Summer that takes me back to being a child. It is one of my favorite holidays and now I get to share it with my own child. I had a particular shot that I wanted to get of Shep with these American flag glasses. After two packs of puffs, his favorite toys, and bribing my husband to help, we (sort of) got the shot. The outtakes were hilarious so I thought I would share them here. 

The Green's - Birmingham, Alabama Wedding Photography

Caitlin and Andrew's love for each other was so easy to capture. As she walked down the aisle, as they took their portraits, as they cut the cake and listened to toasts.. I kept repeating to myself..."look at how he looks at her." Their wedding was a dream and I wish them both all the happiness in the world. #goodtobegreen
