Back to School | Kids

My littles will be heading back to Mother’s Day Out (MDO) and preschool soon. Our little buddy, Brayden, who was in Avery’s class last year will be attending a different preschool this year. So we got together to take some back to school pictures, and let the kids play one more time before school starts back.

My girls were not into taking pictures. Little bit was sleepy, and the other one just wanted to play. So, these aren’t the best, but at least we got two!

Clare & Kegan | Wedding

As I mentioned in my last post, I was able to snap a few pictures of the actual wedding for the bride and groom.

The wedding took place at Burritt on the Mountain. It was stunning. The view, the beauty — it was the perfect place to have a wedding! The colors that Clare and Kegan chose complimented the garden for the wedding, and the reception hall.

Before the wedding, I captured this little gem. Be still my heart!

We chose to sit on the back row in case the girls had a meltdown. Avery ended up sitting on the grass beside me so her view wasn’t blocked, and it was the perfect little spot for me to photograph some memories for the bride and groom.

We are so happy we could be at the wedding to celebrate your day.

Wedding Day Transformation | Wedding

Clare and Kegan tied the knot on a beautiful mountain overlooking Huntsville, Alabama. The day started off rainy and stormy, but God gave us a glorious evening for their outdoor wedding. We are part of the family, so they hired a Huntsville photographer to photograph the actual wedding.

The mother of the bride, Susan, asked me to come up early that morning to capture the getting ready stage of the wedding day. My crew came along so we wouldn’t have two vehicles two hours away from home. My girls LOVED watching everyone get their hair and makeup done by The Transformation (and getting to play with their cousin’s doll house and Clare’s “puppy” Lily).

Even though I wasn’t the main photographer, I still captured a little bit from their wedding. Stay tuned…

Spa One80 — Head Shots & Group

Does anyone else think that going to a new stylist is like going on a first date?

Is he/she pretty?
Will y’all click?
Will I leave happy, or in tears?

A stylist is more than just a person who has shears in their hands. He/she will help you solve the worlds problems at the wash bowl. He/she will have your life story by the end of your appointment. And lets not forget that he/she has the power to change your look (in a good or bad way). At the end of that “first date” you know if y’all have chemistry.

And more than likely, if you click, you’ll end up being best friends for life.

Over a year ago, I had my last “first date” with my stylist, Krystle. If she or I ever move away, I’d still travel every six weeks to have her work her magic. I’ve followed her as she found her new home away from home at Spa One80. I’ve even gotten to know her fellow teammates, and have grown to love them as well.

They’ve been in their new location for a few months now. Everything is so chic. They’ve built their team, and they are rocking it! They are a full service salon/spa including hair, nails, facials, and massage. We decided once they got settled in that we’d set a time for head shots, and yesterday was that day.

Are you ready to meet the faces behind Spa One80? Be sure to check out their Facebook page every day for the next ten days to learn more about each person on their team.
