THANK YOU!

This past Fall/Christmas season was the MOST FUN EVER. You people rock. Seriously. This is just a small snippet of the families who trusted me enough to take their family photos and Christmas card pictures for 2015 and I can’t say enough how HONORED I feel! To think that these photos are going to be treasured, printed, framed, or just stored on their computer for years to come and then found unexpectedly one day down the road and remembered with fondness of how much their kids have grown blesses my socks off.

Thank you all for allowing me the opportunity and please continue sharing with your friends and family! I would love to create memories for them as well! Happy New Year and here’s to 2016!

Jenna & Matt | Family

Jenna and Matt are some friends of ours from our small group at church. They gave me the opportunity to do my first photo shoot with a puppy! Challenging, but overall pretty cute…and that’s saying something considering I am definitely not considered a dog person 😉

The Long Family – Expecting Asher

A couple of weekends ago I had the opportunity to do another maternity shoot! I’ve loved getting to take these snapshots of a family before they grow by another precious baby! David and Tye are expecting their second son, Asher, before the end of the month. His big brother Weldon is not too sure about it right now, but I’m sure he will be a fantastic big brother. I’m so excited for you guys!

The Fowler Family

I get so excited every time someone asks me to do a photo shoot for them. It’s encouraging and nerve-wracking all at the same time. But I have so much fun spending time with so many different people and capturing moments that they’ll treasure looking back on. Last weekend was no different. I had the privilege of spending some time with the Fowler family. Matt and I met Brandi and Daniel briefly in our newlywed class a couple of years ago, but they quickly switched classes because of sweet Braxton’s quick arrival, and since then they’ve had another precious baby boy, Brody. Braxton might have the most beautiful blonde locks of hair I’ve ever seen and Brody is without a doubt the most content baby I could have asked for. To top it all off, they’re Alabama fans. It just doesn’t get any better.

Daniel’s parents were in town for a visit and they are the true unsung heroes of the day. What you won’t see is them behind me 90% of the time clapping and making noises to get the boys to look towards the camera and laugh. So we had to make sure we captured some moments with them as well 🙂

Brandi, you are seriously one gorgeous mama. I hope I look that good after having 2 kids!

I just don’t know if it gets any cuter than this.

Oh Brody… you’re sweet smile and laugh is just too much to handle!

2014-06-06_0043

He seriously looks like a little man-child.

One of my faves.

“Braxton, show us your muscles!”

Dancing around in his daddy’s old hat.

It was at this moment that I was poised and ready to take quick shots just in case he tumbled in the fountain. I’m sure Mom wouldn’t have been happy but I’m pretty sure those pictures would have been adorable. Ah, but Braxton kept his balance and we were able to get some good splashing shots instead.

If you haven’t gathered this already, this little boy loves trains. Just like his daddy and his granddad did when they were young.

“Choo! Choo!”

2014-06-06_0082 2014-06-06_0083 2014-06-06_0084 2014-06-06_0085 2014-06-06_0086

And then as fate would have it, as we were wrapping up our shoot, a real train passed through on the nearby tracks. At first we were worried Braxton might get scared by the noise, but he totally embraced it and couldn’t keep his eyes away. Precious.

The conductor even treated us to blowing his whistle as he passed by!

2014-06-06_0092

I don’t know who was more excited…Braxton or Daniel…

Then to wrap things up I was able to get a few shots of just Brandi and Daniel. Loved it.

Thanks again Brandi and Daniel! I loved spending the time with your family and ya’ll couldn’t have more been more fun to work with. Roll Tide! 😉
