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


Masters Golf Birthday Party - Birmingham, Alabama Family & Child Photography

I have been planning and pinteresting (not a word, I know) his 1st birthday party since I found out he was a boy. It was always going to be a golf theme but by making it all about the Masters, I could incorporate our love for all things southern. Green ribbons were tied, yellow balloons were blown up, and a green in the shape of #18 at Augusta National (ish) was piped onto a homemade cake. He hated his cake, like his cookies, and LOVED his new wagon. 

Joy in the Outtakes - Birmingham, Alabama Family and Child Photography

Some of my favorite pictures of Shep are the unplanned ones. The moments when he is climbing on his chair and I grab my camera. There is obviously something to be said about formal or posed pictures. But my favorites will always be the outtakes. 


100 Years of Feltman - Birmingham, Alabama Newborn Photography

1916 was an important year. The Cubs played their first game at Weegham Park (Wrigley Field). The PGA was founded. The Boy Scouts of America was formed. World War I was in its third and most decisive year. The current Coca-Cola formula was introduced to the market. And a family owned factory started making heirloom children's gowns. 

In the 12 weeks since he was born, I have taken over 3,000 pictures. He has not grinned in a single picture until I put him in his Feltman Brothers bubble. Like I said, 1916 was an important year. :)
