Downtown Christmas | Personal Photoshoot

It’s almost Christmas!! I am so so excited! I am one of those Christmas people who is obsessed with every little part of this season. My husband even jokingly calls me Mrs. Claus. :) So I have been planning on doing some Christmas themed shoots for quite a while now! When I saw these pretty lights go up near my house I knew I wanted to take advantage of them. Then, this week my brother Luke who lives 600 miles away arrived for the holidays, so I proposed the idea of this photoshoot to him! He donned his most festive outfit and joined me in Old Town Helena, along with my sister Hannah, and we all got in on the fun! I loved this shoot so much, and am obsessed with these festive photos!

Hoping you all have a wonderful holiday with your friends and family! I can’t wait to spend the next two weeks with mine! <3

Abby

Today is not just another day. 

It's a new opportunity.

Another chance.

A new beginning.

Embrace it

We are on the cusp of a new season, my favorite season, the season of change. School is starting, soon the leaves will change color and the temperature will drop, and there's just something inspiring in the air. Fall feels like a new beginning and I love everything about it.

Abby is about to begin her senior year, a year of firsts and lasts. These photos were a way to celebrate that occasion and the season to come. A nod to the beautiful golden colors and crisp air on the horizon. Thank you Abby for helping make my vision come to life! 

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!

Baby F

This week I had the pleasure of meeting another newborn baby, when my friends Olivia and JD welcomed their precious daughter into the world. Baby F made an early appearance this week, and is 6 pounds of pure sweetness! Meeting her made me SO excited to meet my own baby girl in a few months, and I can't wait for these little girls to grow up together!

Congratulations Olivia and JD, and thank you for letting me meet and photograph your sweet girl! 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:

Hosanna

Hi guys! I know it's been way too long since I've blogged! It's been a crazy (in a good way!) couple of months over here at Emily Rose Photography, which means I have gotten behind on blogging. But it also means I have so much beauty to share with you all in the coming weeks! :D

Fall brought in mini session season which is always so much fun! One of my first minis (when it was still quite hot!) was with my dear friend Hosanna. Not only is she the cutest thing on the planet, she is also just the sweetest girl you will ever meet. Her bubbly personality shines through these photos, and I had so much fun hanging out with her during this shoot. Here are some of my favorites! <3
