Cullman, AL -- Children's Photography

"S" was such a dream! She was chatty and laughing and was quite possibly one of the best ways to spend a Saturday morning. She loved to tell me stories and laugh and smile for the camera in between. She is definitely a cutie!! 

She definitely gave me a glimpse into my future with chatty girls! Thanks so much Johnson family for photographing your sweet girl!

Cullman, AL Photographer-- Published!!!

Several months ago, I entered some photos in a contest to be published in a book that was being printed by one of my nerdy photography forums. Months went by, and I forgot about it. Then, I received an e-mail telling me congratulations, I had made it past the first round of cuts. Wow. Wasn't expecting that. A few weeks ago, I received the e-mail stating that I was a soon to be published photographer because one of my photos had made the cut! You can't imagine the happy dance that I did. At first, I thought, well, it's not THAT big a deal, I mean, it's just my PEERS that will see the book. Well, duh. Isn't that the highest honor? That your peers view your work as inspirational? So, I decided that I was going to be SUPER proud of it and show it to anyone who wanted to see. 

Thank you, little Easton!! Your sweet little yawn, not only stole MY heart, but other people think it's pretty spectacular!!

Cullman, AL Photography-- Office Supplies

I decided this year that I wanted some more personalized office supplies to help me stay organized. These binders almost got the best of me, design wise, but I figured it out in the end! :) I'm quite in love with them. 

Be Still, my organizational heart.... I love a good planner. Voila!! I can make one for anyone else too... just let me know if you are interested! I can do calendars too!

Cullman, AL Newborn Photography--Baby Finley

We've been waiting for Baby Finley in our gals circle and she is finally here!!! She is just as photogenic as her mama and a great sport for the camera. She just let me fold her and place her however I wanted. I wish all newborns would be just like her-- I could totally get into newborn photography that way! 

Sweet Finley- I can't wait to watch you grow up!!

Cullman, AL Children's Photographer- Miss L

Sweet Miss L was a trooper.. it was pretty cold when we did this session. She was a talker too. I love to hear my toddlers just chat away... I really love the funny things they say. I should start writing a book! 

Always need some mommy loving!!!

Cullman, AL Family Photography--Krista and Kiddos

It may have taken us two tries to get some good photos of everyone, I am pretty pleased with this session. In my first year of business, I have learned that boys don't generally like having their picture taken. So, sometimes? You have to resort to fart noises to get some smiles. I'm not above it. 

Krista-- I really love your kids. They are so sweet and well behaved-- really! I know sometimes you would disagree, but they are pretty fantastic as I figure that you know! I love you girl! You are pretty fantastic too. :)

Birmingham, AL Family Photographer--Harder Family

This family is part of our Fall family. And what I mean by that is, they are Alabama fans. We see them mostly in the Fall.. on campus! :) While there may be an LSU fan in there, we don't discriminate and I am extremely glad this session was done before we played those Tigers! :) 

Their family dynamic is awesome. Tight knit, even if not everyone lives in the same city. And besides that? They make super cute children! 

I enjoyed our morning at Aldridge Gardens! Roll Tide, guys!

Cullman, AL Family Photographer--Hinson Family

What can I say? This is a beautiful family inside and out. I should know, Sarah is my sister. She is a great mom, wife, and most importantly to me, a fantastic sister. 

Sarah and Andy are doing a wonderful job raising their boys, and hopefully soon, a little girl. They are in the process of adopting from China... you can read about it HERE

I really love being their photographer, because Sarah is the typical BIG SISTER. Which means, Bossy. Even though I am 26, she still bosses me around, and this is the only time in my life where I get to say, "No friend, I'm in charge here." I'm not gonna lie... I really love that. :)

(I'm not gonna lie.. this picture hurts me...) 

I love you Hinson Family!!
