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!!!

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

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!

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

Yesterday, I had the honors of photographing the Hays’ at Birmingham Botanical Gardens in such a special time in their lives. They are just weeks away from meeting their sweet baby girl! Welcoming your fist child into the world is such a fun, exciting, and also uncertain time. You are so ready to meet this little person, this little stranger, who you’ve been wanting to see for 9 months. You are excited to see her, but at the same time the uncertainty of parenthood is in the back of your mind. Not knowing what comes next. What giving birth will be like, what do you do when you come back home and it’s just you two with this tiny little human? But what’s also so funny in this time is you find that God has instilled these natural instincts for you to have. As a mother you just know this person so well that you just met. Even though you just met, you know everything this little one needs and it comes from you. Your body and your being was built for this. God doesn't make mistakes and he didn’t make a mistake by giving you this child. Being a new mom is a crazy experience, but it’s the most rewarding thing you will ever do. Payton, I am so excited to see you come into this role and how awesome of a mom you are going to be! I know you are going to be so blessed by this sweet baby and you two are going to be awesome parents! Congratulations!!

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

A new baby is like the beginning of all things wonder, hope, a dream of possibilities.

I had such a wonderful time with the Dickson Family this past Sunday. Casey and her husband, Matthew, are expecting a sweet little boy in a few weeks!! I might be a little bias, but boys are awesome! Haha! Even though it was FREEEEZING Sunday we had such a great time and got some gorgeous photos. Their youngest daughter, Ava, was such a hoot. She reminds me of my oldest son, so full of personality and totally fearless. But, she has a huge heart for her Mama and Daddy. I am so excited for this sweet baby boy and this family. Praying many blessings over Casey’s pregnancy and the birth of their sweet boy.

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.
