A Thompson Princess | Adoption

The Thompson’s officially added another member to their tribe this week. And, it’s a GIRL. This little girl doesn’t know how lucky she is to have such sweet and loving parents, and I’m pretty sure her new brothers are going to fight off every boy that comes near her for years and years to come.

Lauren and Ted just recently adopted Kaiden into their family, and on the same day that adoption was finalized, they got the call about Tenley. She is the perfect fit for their family, and no doubt loved by all of their extended family and friends.

Congratulations on your sweet little girl, Thompsons! I can’t wait to photograph your family pictures this fall!

See my favorites and all the love from Tenley’s adoption day.

Demi Lee’s Nursery Reveal |Baby

It’s hard to believe that two short weeks ago, Demi Lee entered the world. I had the pleasure of photographing her birth and her Fresh 48 session. And yesterday, we spent the morning photographing some new memories for mommy and daddy — her nursery reveal!

Demi’s mommy is a ballerina. So it was only fitting that her room be full of soft pinks and ballet things. Amanda did an incredible job putting together such a sweet nursery for her baby girl.

Enjoy a few of my favorites from their session.



Mr & Mrs McDonald | Married

Malauri and Chance are married! This sweet couple tied the knot at a beautiful venue outside of Hattiesburg, Mississippi. With a hurricane brewing and taking aim at Florida, the love bugs were in abundance on their special day and the massive heat and humidity that we had been having gave us a break and it was a beautiful day! No humidity is just what the bride asked for, and God blessed her with a comfortable day!

Seeing Malauri walking down the isle with her daddy brought back many memories for me. I’ve watched her grow up since she was born and seeing the beautiful young lady that she is walking to her groom was such a sweet moment!

Congrats to the happy couple! Wishing you a lifetime of wedding bliss!

Enjoy some of my favorites from their wedding day!


Malauri | Bride

Malauri is married! The sweet couple said their vows yesterday, and it was a beautiful ceremony. A month before they said “I Do” I photographed Malauri for her bridal portraits. And, today I finally get to show them off!

It was HOT, but she was a trooper! We shot at two different locations, which gave her a good amount of different looks to choose from. Her makeup, hair, dress, everything was perfect, and even held up as we dodged rain showers.

Here are a few of my favorites from her bridals.

Demi Lee | Fresh 48

A photographer is sometimes asked to be present in the most precious events in people’s lives. From engagements to weddings, and from birth through all the baby’s milestones — our job is to capture moments for people to treasure for a lifetime. And last Friday, I was able to capture the most precious event in a couple’s lives — the birth of their first child. I’ll be leaving the birth pictures for them to share as a family, if they decide to do so. But, let me tell you, it was an incredible experience. And I’m so happy I was able to be there for them. The pictures are breathtaking!

The following day I came back to the hospital for the baby’s Fresh 48 session. She was so sweet and snuggly, and was the perfect subject for me to photograph. OH, and mom and dad were looking amazing just 24 hours after this sweetness came in the world.

Introducing sweet Demi Lee…. enjoy some of my favorites from her Fresh 48 session.

Congratulations on your sweet family of THREE! I can’t wait to watch her grow!

Pat & Wanda | HeadShots

I love working with real estate agents. From photographing their listings to photographing them for their marketing materials. A week ago we set up shop at Pat and Wanda’s office and had a fun photo session. Both of these ladies have been working hard to shed a few pounds, and they look great! So of course new head shots and marketing pictures were needed!

Enjoy a few of my favorites from their session.

Amber | Blogger\Model

I love Instagram. I use it more than any other social media. And, I guess you can say my love for photography is why I love it more than any of the others — pictures, pictures, and more pictures.

A little over two years ago I started following Amber at StylePlusCurves on Instagram, and then came to find out later she was the sister of one of my friends here in Bham. Small world, right? Well, I got to meet Amber recently and she asked me to photograph her that day. When she came back into town for her high school reunion, she scheduled a session with me. I was tickled pink! She knows how to work the camera, and we had a ball sweating to death together. After all it is the hottest time of the year in Alabama!

Y’all go follow Amber over on Facebook and Instagram. You are sure to fall in love with her posts!

Enjoy some of my favorites from her recent session!



The Riekebergs | Family

This sweet family asked me to do a lifestyle session with them at their home before I left for vacation, and I’m just now stopping long enough to blog about them. Lacretia has been keeping me busy photographing all her real estate listings, and FYI, those houses aren’t lasting long on the market!

She wanted some new marketing photos for her business, and wanted some new family shots as well. So we had some fun with the entire family, even their sweet dog, Purdy!

Enjoy some of my favorites from their session!


And if you need help with real estate, give Lacretia a call!


Sheffield | TWO

Our Alabama crazy summer weather had us running from lightning and rain during Sheffield’s session, but we were able to capture some sweet memories for mom and dad. Sheffield is just a month younger than my youngest, and has the same energy she does. Exploring and running is their favorite at this age, so we let him do his thing and just ran after him. Puddles and little boys just go together, and when his mom and dad let him have fun in the water it was priceless!

Enjoy a few of my favorites from his session!


Darcie | Senior Cheerleader

Y’all might remember Darcie from a few months ago. You know, the gorgeous one in the unforgettable prom dress? Well, she and her mom drove over to see me this week so we could take her Senior Cheerleader pictures.

We had so much fun sweating together in our humid weather, but she brought her A game and we got so many great photos for her to use in their football program this year. I have no idea how they are going to pick the ones to use!

Enjoy a few of my favorites from her session.
