McQueen Wedding Preview | The Barn at Dry Creek Farms | Alabama Wedding Photographer Birmingham Wedding Photographer Gadsden Wedding Photographer

This was not your typical October wedding, well, maybe for Alabama it is, ha! Ashton and Joshua had their special day ay The Barn at Dry Creek Farms in Pell City, Alabama last weekend. It was a gorgeous day, but man, was it HOT. Not what you’d imagine for a October wedding ha! I love my fall weddings, but this was far from fall if you ask me! Reminded me of my summer wedding I had this year. I loved the colors Ashton had picked for her flowers. I love the pops of green, red, and purples. All the details down to her grandmother’s broach she wore on her dress as her “something old, and something blue”. Love the little details she wore. <3 The vehicle pictured is Josh’s grandfather’s. I mean what a family heirloom, huh? Their son, Ausbon, is named after the same grandfather who this vehicle belongs to. It’s so special to have this image with this vehicle. So many special details to this wedding day, all so sentimental.

Many prayers of blessings over Ashton, Joshua, and Ausbon. May God bring you blessings, and that you have many memories and years together. <3

Oliver Newborn Session -- BIRMINGHAM AND GADSDEN PHOTOGRAPHER, SPRINGVILLE AND TRUSSVILLE PHOTOGRAPHER

Springville is a beautiful little town, with beautiful people in it. Including this one. I have been working with this family since Emmett came into this world almost 2 years ago. Now here I am shooting photos of his perfectly squishy little brother. I absolutely love photographing this family, as you can see they are beautiful together. But, I just love who they are. They are so kind, so sweet, and the love shows through and through with their photographs. I love how much Emmett loves his little brother, and clearly Oliver the same for Emmett. I know Oliver just turned a week old, but I see many, many sweet times with these two boys in the future. Best friends, for sure! Thanks again to Kaylyn and Neil for allowing me to being their photographer. It’s an honor every single time! I adore them and of course their beautiful babies. <3

Oliver Newborn Preview -- Birmingham and Gadsden Photographer, Springville and Trussville Photographer

My baby fever is on high right now, y’all. This little cutie isn’t even a week old yet and I got to snap some photos of his sweet face today! Oliver is SUCH a good baby. I loved every second getting to spend capturing little moments with him. I love these little squishy babies. If everyone will have babies and then let me come photograph them that will be perfect. <3

You’re a parent.

It is your circus.

Those are YOUR monkeys.

Having young children is everything you do not expect it to be. Never in my life did I ever think I’d have to tell someone to not put their face in front of their pee-dinkle because if they do they will pee on their face. But, here I am, 26 years of age, and I have literally had to say that out loud to my son. If you haven’t potty trained a boy… you will never understand. The Martin Family is one of my favorite families to work with, and it’s because they are real. Their youngest child, Hudson, is just like any boy and, of course, he hates wearing clothes. I get it, both of my sons run around practically naked all the time. Hudson was over it by the end of their session and let it ALL hang out. No pants… no problems. I had to get a memorable family photo to show what it’s really like in the life of a mother with a toddler boy. Sweet little Blakely didn’t even think twice about it. I know it must be a mess living with a little brother like Hudson! :) Love these kiddos. Both are so sweet and adorable! Thanks again to the Martin Family for choosing me to be your family photographer! I love capturing these memorable moments for you guys! Hudson will one day hate me, haha!!

Oliver's Birth | Birmingham Baby Photographer, Trussville Baby Photographer, Springville Baby Photographer, Attalla Baby Photographer Gadsden Baby Photographer, Rainbow City Baby Photographer

This morning Oliver Weston Evans entered the world at 10:31 AM. Being able to document this day for Kaylyn and Neil was truly a blessing. Watching a baby being born into this world is the most beautiful and most extraordinary thing I’ve ever seen. Going back and looking through these images is so emotional, just reliving these moments. Seeing the process is amazing, and the strength Kaylyn had to give birth to this human being is… literally no words to describe it. A mother’s love is one of a kind, being able to endure the pain of child birth and then have that smile on your face literally seconds after… that is TRUE LOVE. And don’t get me started on the absolute adorableness that is Big Brother Emmett! That boy LOVES his baby brother!! A huge thank you again to Kaylyn and Neil for including me in this special day. Being part of the birth of both their children, and their wedding is so special. Literally love this family! Oliver, you are so loved, little buddy! I am so excited to finally meet you!!

I had such a fun time with Molly and John at their engagement session at the gorgeous Elyton Hotel yesterday morning! I serious loved this location. Molly and John met last January and went on a food tour at the Elyton on their first date. This is such a cute session and I loved capturing the love between these two! <3

Soooo, here is a little back story from my session tonight. I know in most places it’s rained, but it has not rained in Steele in like 3 weeks. No joke like a month without a good rain. It’s DRY up in here, y’all. The rain goes around us all the time. Well, tonight I look at the radar as there is a chance of rain today. 6:00 PM… 0% chance of rain. I’m like, “GOOD. It is gonna rain, but not when I have my session with the Howards today.” WELL, literally as soon as they pull up. It starts POURING rain. And really, it doesn’t stop until 20 minutes before it’s DARK. But thank God they stuck it out with me. They waited and got rained on, and I am so thankful for their patience with me. I was so upset this happened, but they were so kind about it! You just have to laugh when things like this happen! I prayed for rain, and I SUUUUURE got it, ha!!

Taking photos of this precious girl tonight literally reminds me of the lyrics to Michael Buble's new song, "Forever Now". This sweet baby is going to be one soon, and it is such a reminder of how fast they grow. I know this Mama is saying, "Slow down just a little bit and let me love you a little longer." <3


"I tuck you in at night

Another day has passed

Every week goes by a little faster than the last

It wasn't so long ago

We walked together and you held my hand

And now you're getting too big to want to

But I hope you'll always understand

That I'm always gonna lift you up

And I'm never gonna let you down

No matter what you do

I'm forever proud of you

I'll love you forever now."

I love my summer creek minis. When it’s blazing hot outside, it’s always so much fun to take a dip in the water and cool off, EVEN DURING A PHOTO SESSION, WHAAAA! I know, you’re gonna look at these and wish you were half as freaking adorable as Lesty and Rachel are together. I mean these two can go from adorable to steamy is a second! They are seriously so cute together I can’t even handle it. Also, Happy Birthday to my pal, Rachel! Thank you for allowing me to shoot this session on your day! We had a blast!!

I loved this last minute maternity session this week at Dayspring Farm in Springville! This beautiful mama was 4 cm already at this session! I can’t believe how amazing she looked already that far along! She was a champ too. Walked around the farm and didn’t even act like she was tired! Congratulations to these two! You’re going to love being parents!

This little family is one of my favorites. I love all my clients, but this one stands out to me. I knew Neil growing up, but actually my relationship actually came from the connection with Kaylyn while I shot her birth of Emmett. Since Emmett’s birth I’ve shot so many big moments for this sweet family. I feel like I’ve been part of their lives through so much. I’ve watched them grow, especially sweet Emmett. I can’t believe he’s pretty much a year and a half old! Which blows my mind. I can’t even believe that!! This session is a super special one for me. Kaylyn is about to give birth in a few weeks to her second, precious baby boy. I cannot wait to shoot the birth of Oliver!!! It’s BEYOND amazing and such a huge blessing to me to be able to photograph these moments for this sweet family. Being able to grow and see this family grow is my favorite thing ever. I feel like I’ve experience so much with them and it’s beyond exciting to celebrate with them. I can’t wait to meet the newest addition to the Evans Family!!!

Dayspring Farm | Birmingham Wedding Photographer | Trussville Wedding Photographer | Springville Wedding Photographer | Gadsden Wedding Photographer | Alabama Wedding Photographer

When your friend Megan Sisson asks you to shoot a wedding with her at Dayspring Farm in Springville… you always, ALWAYS say YES!! This wedding started out in total fear because a huge rain storm came in and wanted to ruin this gorgeous outdoor wedding. But this bride didn’t let it. She said she wanted to go through with it rain or shine under this gorgeous tree on the farm. And boy are we glad she did!! I hate to toot our own horn, but the team on this wedding is by far my favorite. We have coined the phrase, “Dream Team” for ourselves and I think it’s absolutely fitting. Dayspring Farm is one of my favorite venues to work at, working as Megan Sisson’e second shooter is nothing short of amazing, and the florals… oh the florals… The incredible Kristi Russell at The Wired Owl knocks it out of the park EVER. SINGLE. TIME. I mean look at that bouquet!! But I am absolutely so glad I worked with my amazing friend, Megan on this wedding. She is killer and I love her to death. Congrats to Camdon and Ethan!! You both took all that yesterday could give you and made the absolute best out of it all. Your wedding hands down is one of the most beautiful weddings I’ve worked. <3

Waylon is ONE!!

This sweet baby boy is about to turn one and his session was awesome! I always love working at Dayspring Farm because first of all it’s absolutely breath taking, but the staff is also my favorite! We loved having Waylon’s session here and it was so fitting for such a cute little man. Waylon and his mother are too sweet. He IS totally a Mama’s Boy and ain’t even mad haha!

Happy Birthday, sweet Waylon! You are so loved! I know your sweet little life has blessed the world beyond words, even just in this first year. <3

Payton Maternity | Birmingham Photographer | Trussville Photographer | Springville Photographer | Gadsden Photographer | Southside Photographer | Steele Photographer

This maternity session at Birmingham Botanical Gardens is one of my favorites. It was such a gorgeous summer day, and this mama and dad were so excited for the upcoming weeks to meet their baby girl! Maternity Sessions are one of my favorites. I remember the times of the upcoming events, the fact I was about to have a sweet baby to hold and love, the fact I could feel a human being moving around inside my body and the miracle it is to just have that happen is incredible. To be able to photograph other mothers in this beautiful phase of life is amazing. It’s personally something I enjoy just as much as I do photographing newborns, and who doesn’t love snuggling sweet newborn babies?! I am so thrilled for this sweet family and the beautiful journey they have ahead of them. <3

Lily Senior Session Preview | The Wharf | Alabama Senior Photographer | Gulf Shores Senior Photographer | Birmingham Senior Photographer | Gadsden Senior Photographer

I had such a great time with Lily at her senior session at The Wharf in Orange Beach! Lily said that she wanted her session here because she spends a lot of her summers out on the boat with her family and couldn’t imagine a more perfect place for her senior session. I am in agreement because this location is gorgeous! I had such a fun time meeting and working with Lily. She’s gorgeous, and I am so jealous of her natural beach waves in her hair. She’s actually is not from the area and it’s surprising because she looks like she was born to be living in this area! I am so excited to share these previews with you all! <3
