The W Family

If you’ve known me for any length of time, you know that Fall is my FAVORITE! So likewise, Fall sessions are my favorite sessions!

The W family (who just happen to be some of my amazing in-laws!) met me on a breezy Fall afternoon at Moss Rock Preserve. The beautiful rocks hidden in the colorful woods were the perfect backdrop for this fun and laid back family session.

I had a blast with these guys just hanging out and watching them interact. Their love for each other is apparent as soon as you meet them, and it translates so effortlessly in their photos! Here are just a few of my favorites!

The W Family | Personal Photoshoot

Happy December everyone! The past few weeks have been a flurry of mini sessions, holiday celebrations, and baby preparations for me so I haven't had a chance to blog in a while! But I didn't want to let the time get away from me without wishing you all a happy holiday season, and I thought my own personal family photos would be a fun post to wrap up this year!

This post is actually a compilation of two separate shoots. We had our original family photoshoot a few weeks ago on a very cold and blustery day, and then about a week later we had a spare afternoon and much nicer weather, so we decided to run out for just a few more photos together. This year's family photos are particularly special, because they are our last as a family of three (well, three plus a giant bump)! We are so excited to welcome our little girl in just a few weeks, but wanted to document this time with our firstborn as well. I know we will treasure these for years to come, and I hope you enjoy a few of our favorites!

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, from my family to yours! I can't wait to see what next year holds!

The F Family

This past weekend I had the privilege of doing a fun little shoot with my friend Ashley and her adorable boys! :) That special mother and son bond is something very near and dear to me, so I loved capturing that through Ashley and her boys. It was a cold and windy evening, but they were such troopers and had plenty of fun running around Railroad Park at sunset. I am so pleased and honored to have captured these precious memories for this sweet little family. Here are 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:

The O Family

Have I ever mentioned that Fall is my favorite? ;)The breeze is crisp, the colors are vibrant, and everything glows with a beautiful golden light. My session with the O family embodied all of the beauty of Fall, as well as the sweet connection between each family member. The little ones played and had fun together, then big sister jumped in and spent some time being silly with them, and then we got the whole family together for a few fun photos - and mom and dad even caught a moment alone! It was a joy getting to know this adorable family! Here are some of my favorite moments:

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! :)

July 4th 2015

4th of July has always been one of my very favorite holidays, and this year was one of the best ones yet - even though it was uncharacteristically cool weather! The reason this year was so special was because both my and Bret's families were able to spend the day all together for the first time! We had a huge gathering in my in-laws' neck of the woods, and we enjoyed TWO barbecues, homemade ice cream, games of bad minton and football, go-cart rides, swimming, kayaking, and fireworks in the rain. :) Here are some photos of our day. Enjoy!
