Reagan | Class of 2019

Last night I had the pleasure of working with this beauty queen on her senior photos! I’ve had the opportunity to photograph Reagan a few times now, and she is always a natural in front of my camera, so I was so thrilled when she asked me to take her senior photos!

We were hoping to catch the last of the Fall colors and, WOW, did we luck out! The trees at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens were still absolutely beautiful and vibrant, and the LIGHT was incredible! I couldn’t have asked for better!

Thanks for a wonderful time Reagan! Best of luck with the rest of senior year!

Now enjoy a few of my favorites!

The G Family

Today I'm sharing another favorite Fall mini session with the adorable G family. I was so excited to take their first Christmas photos as a family of three! The trees at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens were in full, incredible color and made a beautiful backdrop - they went especially nicely with this family that is two-thirds redheads! :D Here are some of my favorite moments:

Samuel + Hosanna

This past weekend I had the pleasure of doing a Christmas mini-shoot with my good friends, Samuel and Hosanna. Hosanna had been wishing for some non-iPhone photos of the two of them, and Samuel set up this shoot as an early Christmas present for her. How sweet is that?! I loved watching these two together. Their personalities meld together so wonderfully, and they seem to just *get* each other. They were truly a joy to shoot! Here are some of the highlights:

Josh + Katharine

 This week I had the pleasure of meeting with Josh and Katharine to take their engagement photos. I had such a wonderful time working with these two! Josh and Katharine's joy is contagious. Their silliness together is adorable and their friendship is heartwarming. I loved hearing all about their love story, Josh's proposal (and Katharine's too!), and their dreams of a cute little house with a fenced-in backyard and a dog. :) Thank you for the wonderful time, friends! I wish you both the best as you plan your wedding in June, work towards your medical dreams, and continue to pursue each other. Now enjoy these favorites from the shoot!

The Green Family

This weekend I had the joy of working with a very special family. After a long story of God's faithfulness, Melissa and Andrew were unexpectedly blessed with not one but TWO precious babies earlier this year (you can read more about their story on Melissa's blog), and I was so excited for the opportunity to take their first photos as a family of four! Life (and photography) is always unpredictable when little ones are involved, but we rolled with the punches and captured so many precious moments that I absolutely love! Thank you so much for a wonderful shoot, friends. Squish those chubby cheeks for me! :)
