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."

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!

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!
