Mommy + Me Session Previews | Birmingham Botanical Gardens | BIRMINGHAM LIFESTYLE FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER | GADSDEN LIFESTYLE FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER | SPRINGVILLE LIFESTYLE FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER |

I had the opportunity to photograph so many beautiful Mama’s yesterday at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens. I decided to do these sessions because I know how easy it is for me to get photos with my babies, and I believe every mother should have photos made with her kiddos and no the one making the photo! Each one of these moms has such a beautiful and unique relationship with her children. Each child loves their mother just the same. So thrilled to share just a few previews with you all! Here’s to all the beautiful, brave, strong, and incredible mamas!

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 

Hanna + Brian | Gender Reveal in Gulf Shores

Hanna + Brian | Gender Reveal in Gulf Shores

Guys. This session! It was one of my favorites for sure. You put my two favorite things together: Beaches and Gender Reveals. It was so excited to find out that Hannah and Brian are having a sweet baby girl! This session was hot and humid for it to be a July beach session, but the weather was gorgeous! I looooved editing this session so much. Getting to know this family was so much fun and there is so much love here. <3 

Hannah & Houston | Birmingham Botanical Gardens

Hannah & Houston | Birmingham Botanical Gardens

I've been friends with Hannah since I was a Sophomore in High School. I met Houston, I believe, the year after I met Hannah. Not long after that Hannah and Houston met they started dating. It has been so much fun for me to watch Hannah and Houston grow individually and with each other as well. They are 6 years into their relationship and both are very ambitious to make a life together after Houston gets out of law school. Hannah just finished her first year as a Elementary School teacher. During this session I had the opportunity to ask Hannah and Houston a few questions and it gave me some of my favorite photos I've ever shot. I asked them to look over the last 6 years together. I asked them to think of all the things they have been together, good or bad. All the emotions, whether it be happy, sad, or angry. Both of them just looked at each other and all I could see was dedication and love in their eyes. Hannah and Houston are so lovely and I am so very blessed that they allowed me to get some awesome moments of them together.
