LYLE WEDDING PREVIEWS | MATHEWS MANOR | BIRMINGHAM WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER | SPRINGVILLE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER | TRUSSVILLE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER | ALABAMA WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER |

There might have been a little rain in Springville, Alabama at Mathews Manor yesterday, but that didn’t stop Brittany and Matt from having a fantastic wedding day! These two really know had to just roll with it! Everything was beautiful and thank the Good Lord above that it did stop raining for us to grab a few images of these two before their beautiful reception. And I might be a little bias, but having your wedding on May 4th and going with the Star Wars theme for the day is pretty awesome.

My prayer for this beautiful couple is that they continue to grow closer to The Lord and each other. That their 3 beautiful boys see what love is by the example they set for them by loving one another. That God’s love, peace, and grace is with them all the days of their lives.

Now introducing… Mr. and Mrs. Lyle!

HOWARD WEDDING PREVIEWS | BIRMINGHAM WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER | GADSDEN WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER | SPRINGVILLE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER |

When Michelle sent me a message earlier this week and asked would I be interested in shooting her adorable courthouse wedding I said, HECK YES. And I’m so glad I did because it was perfect. Seriously a huge Congratulations to this sweet family. The live between these two as a couple is magical, but adding in the live for their precious baby girl is just icing on the cake. Now, introducing, Mr. and Mrs. Howard! ❤️

Yesterday I got to spend time with the sweetest little baby. Y’all, this is Beckham and he’s so cute I can’t even handle it.

Ashley and Gabe are killing it in the parent game right now and I am so thrilled for them. I can’t wait to share more of this sweet session. It was seriously so much fun and keeps my baby fever rolling thats for sure. <3

Style Shoot at Weddings at Cabin Bluff in Springville, Alabama | Preview | BIRMINGHAM WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER | TRUSSVILLE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER | SPRINGVILLE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER |

I had such a great time yesterday at the Open House for Weddings at Cabin Bluff in Springville, Alabama. I invited a friend of mine and her fiancé to come and get photos of themselves in their wedding attire and it was so much fun. This venue is absolutely amazing, no matter what season! In the dead of winter here we are and the view and the colors are still AMAZING. Thank you again to Wendy Ryals and her family for allowing me to come and be apart of their open house and taking photos at their beautiful venue! Brides, get that wedding booked here as soon as you can! I know these spots are gonna fill up quick! How could they not? It’s beautiful!!

I photographed Ashton + Joshua at the always beautiful Birmingham Botanical Gardens for their engagement session. Their wedding is this fall and I only found it so fitting that the Gardens had this insanely gorgeous yellow tree. I love fall because of this reason, the insane colors.

I love capturing my couples just as they are in this moment of their lives. Only because when you look back on the photos together you will have grown so much over the years and your lives will be so totally different. New careers, new houses, new cars, kids, more kids, and with all of this comes time, wisdom, and growth in your love. Ashton and Joshua have been together for a while so I know they already see a strong growth in their relationship and themselves together and separately.

Finding the person to spend the rest of your life with truly is a God given gift. Embrace the journey and all that comes with it.

“But let there be spaces in your togetherness and let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.“
Khalil Gibran

Reynolds Maternity Session Preview | Birmingham Family Photographer | Avondale, Alabama

I had such a great time photographing Alex and Levi for their maternity session in Birmingham! They are like a breathe of fresh air. They just enjoy each other and life. I love maternity sessions. My new parents are always so fun to photograph. So much adventure in front of them and they really don’t know what their future holds but they are so excited regardless.

I love shooting in downtown Birmingham because even in the winter this location is so beautiful. Something is so magical about Birmingham in the winter. I am so glad so many couples choose this location. You can see from the photos how beautiful it truly is.

Birmingham Lifestyle Family Photographer | Trussville Alabama Lifestyle Photographer | Springville Lifestyle Photographer

I had a chance to photograph the Gonzalez family in Birimgham. Their family was so close and so sweet together during the entire session. Even with the adventurous toddlers at hand they still showed so much love for their parents.

Things like this are so special to me to document. I want to make sure I can capture those moments for all my families to remember these babies at this age. Adventurous, tender, innocent, and yet again so brave and full of courage at such a young age. That is what I want my kids to see in their photos and what I want your children’s to look back and remember as well. Love, adventure, and comfort.

Falkner Family | Birmingham Family Photographer | Springville, Alabama

So funny story about this sweet family… I talked with Laura before her session and of course I knew she had girls. I knew she had 4. What I didn’t know is two of them were twins!! This was my first session EVER with twins and it was so awesome. This family is beyond sweet and the 2 oldest girls are incredible sisters! I loved meeting and working with the Falkner Family! I actually had the joy of working the other side of the Falkner family a couple weeks after this session! It was so great to meet the entire family! I will be blogging that session soon as well.

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. 

Family Beach Photographer | Gulf Shores Photographer

It's really hard for me, and I know I say this allllll the time, but I seriously loved this session. This family is nothing but fun and you can tell just by the photos shared here. I always love a good beach session! <3 

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. 

Railroad Park & Big Spoon Creamery | Birmingham Senior Photographer

Railroad Park & Big Spoon Creamery | Birmingham Senior Photographer

I loved working with Madelyn for her senior session at Railroad Park and Big Spoon Creamery in Birmingham. Senior Photography is one of my favorite things to photograph because I truly get time to capture such a HUGE time their lives, but not only that, the personality and interests of every senior is so important to me. Madelyn is a "foodie". Which I love because.. I love food, haha! She took me to Big Spoon Creamery and it was my first visit at this location. The ice cream was incredible and the atmosphere really was unique. I loved being able to capture Madelyn's passion AND eat some of the most delicious ice cream I've ever had in my life. I find it to be so important to capture the passions of my seniors because this is the start of the rest of their lives and most keep these passions going for the rest of their lives, and even make a career out of them. Which is so important to me because I had a strong passion for photography in high school and here I am today literally working my dream job! 

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

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.
