Maddie Clare | Head Shots

Maddie Clare, y’all, isn’t she gorgeous?! She is a sophomore at the University of Alabama, and will be rushing this fall. She needed some updated head shots and I was happy to take them for her.

I love when I get to photograph someone who loves to be photographed. It makes for a fun session, and the photos, well, they speak for themselves! Thank you for allowing me to capture this time in your life, MC!

Here are a few of my favorites from her session!

The Reyes |Kids

The Reyes family have become sweet friends of ours. The friendship started off last year during Preschool and Mother’s Day Out. Our kids are the same age, and were in class together. Once they became friends, Lindsey and I were introduced and we became fast friends. We found out in May that this sweet family is moving to another state at the end of summer. And, well, we are crushed. My kids ask everyday to see Stephen, Becca and Mae, and I know once they move many tears will be shed. So, we are spending as much time together as we can this summer to make memories.

Lindsey wanted some updated pictures of her littles, and the weather has not been cooperating on the days we have planned. So, we got up EARLY this morning, and the outcome was perfection!

Enjoy a few of my favorites of Stephen, Becca, and Mae!

Mr & Mrs Morland | Wedding

Madelyn and Bobby Ray’s wedding might go down in history as the hottest wedding in April, ever. Hottest as in temperature and in chemistry. This was the first time I had met this couple in person, and their love for each other and for their family was a beautiful sight to behold!

I think everyone was happy the nasty weather that was headed that way held off till the next day. Thankfully the crazy wind kept us a bit cooled off throughout the afternoon and evening.

Despite the heat and wind, everything was gorgeous! The location, flowers, music, and the sweetest words spoken at their wedding made their day perfect! Both the bride and the groom’s dads about had me in tears several times!

Congratulations to Madelyn and Bobby Ray! I wish you and your family a lifetime of love and happiness!

Enjoy some of my favorites from their wedding day!

 

Darcie | Prom

Let me start off by saying this: Prom is not what it used to be in the 90s. And I’m not just talking about the clothes. Today, prom is glamorous.

I had the pleasure of photographing Darcie and her date, Blake, before their high school prom. When she got out of the vehicle in this stunning dress, I knew we were going to have a lot of fun. Most of the photos were taken downtown, and then at a local park.

Thanks again to Kim for asking me to photograph this special chapter in Darcie’s life! I loved every minute of it!!

Enjoy a few of my favorites from this session.

Randy, Grace & Colton | Family

Back in the fall, I photographed Randy and Grace for her maternity photo session. We laughed and had a great time, and I couldn’t wait to meet little Colton!

This little guy was born two months ago, and he is so handsome and sweet. We moved from place to place and he was happy as can be! I can’t wait to see him crack a smile soon, and before we know it he will be sitting up by himself! But time, please don’t pass too soon!

Thanks again, y’all, for allowing me to capture some sweet memories for y’all in this new chapter of your life! Enjoy a few of my favorites from their session!

The Thompsons | Family

Ted, Lauren, Tripp, and Kaiden had their family pictures made late Fall last year, but I’m just now able to share them with y’all. You can read the previous post for more information about that.

We met at Oak Mountain State Park and had a ball taking pictures. The Thompsons were able to pick out one to use on their Christmas card, and I bet you’ll be able to figure out which one it was from my favorites! I can’t wait to see how much these boys have grown next Fall!

I’m so excited to finally be able to release these pictures on the blog. Enjoy my favorites from their session!

Kaiden | Adopted

I got to witness and photograph another adoption this month. This time it was personal friends of mine, however, this wasn’t the first time I’ve photographed them as a family of four. But, this is the first time I can share pictures of them with Kaiden!

This is one close knit family, and it was heartwarming to see all of them in attendance for today’s hearing. I’m so happy for Ted, Lauren, and Tripp as they welcome their newest official member of the family, Kaiden. I’m pretty sure if you ask Tripp, he’d say Kaiden became his brother over a year ago!

Congratulations to the Thompsons! All FOUR of you!

Here are some of my favorites from the adoption hearing.

Judah | One Year Old

I met little Judah when he was just a few months old during VBS at our church last summer. He was so snuggly, and we all fought over who was going to hold him every day. And now, this little man is about to be ONE!

He has some of the sweetest parents, and we are lucky enough to call them friends! I can’t wait to see this little one start walking soon!

It was hard picking favorites, but here are mine…
