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

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!!

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."

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

I am so happy my friend Megan asked me to photograph her and her beautiful daughter. Megan is also a photographer of Megan Sisson Photography and she is one of my sweetest friends. I am thankful that Megan and I have become friends over this past year. She’s by far one of the kindest, funniest, and talented people I’ve met. I am grateful for a community around me that is so supportive and also let’s me photograph their family whenever, haha!

I love working with my friends, but especially when they are photographers too. My sweet friend, Lindsey Bradford, of Lindsey Bradford Photography is beautiful and talented and I am so glad she allows me to always photograph her beautiful family. This session was by far one of my favorites this spring. The wildflowers are Botanical Gardens are insanely beautiful! It will for sure be a spot I use every year. <3

Birmingham Family Photographer | Trussville Family Photographer | Fall Mini Session

I love being a Family Photographer in Alabama. This session at the Bass Pro Shops in Leeds is gorgeous! This is one of my favorite family sessions to date! The colors in this session are beautiful and the happiness is genuine! Have I mentioned seriously how much I love fall? Almost any location is gorgeous and it's all natural beautify. I love it so much. 

Creek Session | Springville Alabama Family Photographer

Creek Session | Springville Alabama Family Photographer

I can't tell you what it is, but these creek sessions have been truly a huge deal in my creative heart of mine. I photographed the Brown Family at a beautiful secluded creek in Springville, Alabama. I love working at a location with water. The beach is always magical, the ocean is so majestic and insanely gorgeous on it's on that it's really hard to not have beautiful images there. But, these creek sessions... there is something like a homegrown feel to them. Or it is at least to me. I love capturing these sweet babies playing in the creek water and finding rocks. I guess just being able to capture these adventurous but also intimate moments near home and with my favorite thing involved, water, is so beautiful to me. I still have a special place in my heart for the Gulf that can never be replaced, but these creek sessions are becoming my second favorite location to shoot at. 

The Brown Family was so lovely to photograph. They have such a large personality as a whole and individually. And if you can't tell the littlest of this bunch is a free and adventurous spirit. Which I adore. I was such a mild and calm child that I think having one of my own that is fearless and adventurous makes it all the more fun, especially when I have a client who has a child just like my own. <3 This family is beautiful on their own, but their kind and openly inviting personalities makes them even more great. Not to mention I worked with Kayla's sister before so it was just so awesome to work with another part of the family and get to know them all. I am so thrilled to share this gallery with you all and hope you enjoy it as much as I have. 

Stuman Family | Mini Session

Stuman Family | Mini Session

On rainy days like today I love to sit down and blog my favorite sessions. The Stuman family are one of my favorites and I love so much about this session. The colors and the love! You can tell how tight this family is. Misty and Brian are raising two awesome, kind, and handsome sons. Luke was actually in my class when I taught daycare. He was only two then! I don't even understand how he got so big so quick!! I hope you guys enjoy this session as much as I do! <3 

Rodgers Family | Fall Session

Rodgers Family | Fall Session

I love this family, y'all. These kiddos are seriously so photogenic and so sweet to each other. I love the bond between all of them and it truly shows how much love is in this sweet family. I am the worst at blogging so this session was this past fall but I am trying to step up my game and blog some of my favorite sessions from this past fall and my most recent ones as well. I hope you all enjoy these photos as much as I do! They are so precious and I still to this day love looking through these. <3
