Alabama Wedding Photographer | Birmingham Wedding Photographer | Gulf Shores Wedding Photographer | Orange Beach Wedding Photographer |

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

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.

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.

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.
