Kaitlyn

It's been a month full of weddings and bridals so it was so nice to have a senior session again. We had so much fun today. Meet Brooks High senior Kaitlyn. She is beautiful, sweet, funny, incredibly patient and up for any adventure I threw her way. I'm so glad you asked me to do your senior pictures! Hope you like them <3 <3

Madisyn

I'm pretty sure I just got to take pictures of a modern day real life Pocahontas... 

Madisyn, you are gorgeous. I had the hardest time narrowing down pictures for your sneak peek. I hope you enjoy the ones I finally decided on, haha! Thanks so much for asking me to do your senior portraits. I had a blast with you guys today.

Hello teenage years

Wow...seriously has three years since I met this sweet girl! I cannot believe she is already thirteen. She is as beautiful inside as she is out. 

I did a small session for her sister when she turned thirteen so it was only necessary to do one for her as well. Although I know she would much rather be reading a book than out taking pictures, she makes one awesome subject!

Thanks "J"! Hope you like them

Baby "N"

I'll admit, I'm a sucker for a red head! Mr. N is absolutely adorable and was in an incredibly good mood. I'm thrilled that his parents drove from Athens to meet with me yesterday. 

Although Dad wasn't prepared for pictures, I talked him into getting into a few and I just love the connection in them.

Baby "N" is a natural model! Hope you guys enjoy your sneak peek! 

The glamorous life of modeling

When it rains it p̶o̶u̶r̶s̶ makes for beautiful images! Between the geese, their droppings in the park grass like mine bombs, and taking shelter in the parking deck waiting the rain out, Kathryn learned this modeling thing isn't as glamorous as TV makes it look. What we did though, is get creative, and it paid off. Because, this was the second session we have scheduled that the rain has set in and we weren't going to let it stop us this time. 

My favorite part of this whole session, is knowing that they knew I would make the best of the weather we were given. I love that in my clients! I'm so glad she had a great attitude and agree to meet me for her session even though a torrential downpour had just begun, and get in the water next to a dead fish (that I didn't know was there), and walk around barefoot in the park and downtown Florence.

These are all turning out so pretty and unique!  I cannot wait to work with her on a sunny day to get the images I had originally had in mind for her. But for now, because I know she is waiting to see something, a small sneak peek.

Enjoy!

 

Serious Mr. R - 9 Month

Oh Mr. R..... how you made me work for those smiles. You repeatedly looked towards your mom with skeptical eyes when I made weird animal noises and danced around for your attention. I don't blame you though, I admit it had to look crazy. Even though I only managed to capture a few smiles from you during our session, I know momma will love the faces I did get. 

Emily

Another successful senior session in the books! Ms. Emily was so much fun to work with! This post is short because it is way past my bedtime but I couldn't wait to share a few for her tonight! 

Hope you enjoy them Emily! Thank you guys so much for asking me to do these for you!

Party of 8

There is no better compliment to me than to have a client return for another session. I have done several sessions for Andrea in the past and they have all turned out fabulous. This one was no exception. I loved being able to meet your sister in laws family and getting to spend the afternoon with you guys! I'm so thankful for all my clients, you guys seriously rock! 

Thank you for asking me to do these, hope you enjoy your sneak peek!

Lauren

Senior sessions are kicking in high gear. I was extremely happy to kick them off with Lauren. Her whole family is pretty awesome if I do say so myself. Lauren, you are the sweetest ever! I knew this a couple years ago taking your majorette pictures but I am so glad to get to know you better. I hope you like your sneak peek! I had so much fun with you guys and hopefully you didn't get to worn out trucking all around town chasing the light - and shadows with me!

Sweet Baby "L"

This session was booked back in March and I have patiently awaited June just for it (and my birthday is this month; seriously guys, this is way more exciting). You may have seen this amazingly sweet couple on my website when Mom was still pregnant, and that session has been in my top favorites since; todays session just may beat it! I loved this family before Baby "L" came around and now there is even more to love about them! 

I apologize in advance for the overload of pictures that is about to happen. I can promise you don't want to miss them though! 

I love the fact as parents we have to help baby eat by going through the motions ourselves. Every parent has made this face a time or two!

I have cracked up at this pooch's expression all day! 

Thank you guys so much for allowing me into your home and for all your sweet praises. It's always so great working with you and I had so much fun hanging today! I hope you enjoyed your "sneak peek" aka mini gallery. Haha

** If you have thought about booking a session with me, please get to me as soon as possible. My Saturday's are reserved for weddings and other days are quickly filling up. Fall is right around the corner and those dates are slim and I would love to get you on the schedule! 

Exceptional

I cannot even begin to express how well behaved, polite, and respectful these ladies (and their momma's) were yesterday. Prom night is always such a hectic day, tons of things going in every which direction. Mom's stressed, daughters tense. There are appointments to be at, reservations to make, and everything is on a tight schedule. 

These girls however, didn't let all of that get it them and had the best time during their photo session.

My clients rock, because when I asked to go to the top of the parking deck and we had to walk this, they didn't complain. And oh was was worth it!

I had so much fun with these girls yesterday. 

But without these momma's that were behind it all, it wouldn't have been possible. Thank you guys so much, your daughters are exceptional young ladies!

Not your average family photographer....

My favorite thing to hear is, "Can you please take our family pictures just like you take your own." To me, it is so important to document everyday life. The little things that happen throughout the day that make your family - your family. 

I'm not your average family photographer. I don't like a series of sit and pose and smile at the camera shots. Not that there is anything wrong with pictures like that, and yes you will get a few in your gallery so you have them when I take your pictures. I want to come to your house, rather it be messy, clean, small, or large and I want to create art out of your everyday family memories. 

This momma, contacted me and asked to do just that, and I couldn't have been more excited!

A walk through neighborhood led us to this amazing empty lot, we hung out here for a while climbing on trees and playing around.

Some of my favorite shots are always people just hanging around their house. I love to be able to capture your life how I see it through my lens. Every family has beautiful moments daily no matter how mundane they seem

Thank you guys so much for asking me to document your family! I enjoyed spending the evening with you and hope you cherish these images
