It was my first session with the two of them. We ran around A LOT but it was totally worth getting this adorable shots.
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.
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!
At her newborn session, I said that she was one of the prettiest babies I had ever photographed and that she could not get any cuter. Boy, was I wrong...
I always tell him that when he grows up and becomes a J. Crew model, I get some of the credit. But, I mean really... could he be any cuter?
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!
Do I have the cutest nephew and niece, or what?
"Can I throw leaves? It would be so fun." Yes, when you look this cute doing it, you can absolutely throw leaves.
Plaid shirts, duck boots, and blue vests... pretty much a dream Christmas card shoot. And it wouldn't be a session with boys without one getting stuck in a stump.
These two. They giggled. They laughed. They played. It was so much fun!
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!
She leaned in, touched his head, and whispered, "he is so beautiful." And then we all melted.
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.
I have been taking pictures of James since his parent's adorable maternity shoot. So, it was a huge pleasure to take his 1st birthday pictures at one of my favorite places: the Birmingham Zoo!
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.
One house. Two boys. I am so proud of this sweet friend and was honored to document the beginning of the next chapter in their lives.
This family was just too sweet! I enjoyed every minute with them capturing how much they already love and adore their cute little girl!
I have SO enjoyed getting to watch him grow up. Every time I see him, he is a little taller and his adorable curls are a little longer. But, he is the same sweet boy that grins at my camera and talks about Paw Patrol. :)
As a photographer, there is something miraculous and inspiring about seeing my own child on the other side of the lens. It is even better when I bring in his Teddy and he giggles the entire time.
When we were getting to the end of his session, I asked if he was ready to be done. Surprisingly, he said that he was not done and we needed to take a few more pictures. So, of course, we took a few more pictures. ;)
