Excitement filled the air. The talented crew was decorating the most beautiful fireplace I’d ever seen. The girls were tucked away in the white bridal suite getting their hair and makeup styled just right. The guys were up the spiral staircase playing Mario Kart, their blue suits hanging beside them. Stunning white florals amongst the […]

In the springtime, beautiful wisteria blooms here in Birmingham, Alabama. I’ve always admired how beautiful is. I’ve always longed to shoot the spectacular purple blooms. Normally I see it on the side of the interstate or somewhere not safe to shoot. A spot so beautiful deserves an equally as beautiful subject. That’s where sweet Sierra […]

Mom Life I awoke just before 4:45am to the sound of James calling “Dadadada.” He can’t say mamamama yet ; ) I went in and fed him and rocked him. Then I put him back in his crib just before he seemed to be ready to fall asleep and snuck out. I went back in […]

The last time you saw Dianna she was just a day old! She’s grown leaps and bounds since then, but I still enjoyed taking pictures of her sweet feet just as much this time as I did the last. Dianna, I’ve loved watching you grow over this past year! You’re such a sweet addition to […]

It was 32 degrees. It felt like 19 at the top of Mount Cheaha. But that wasn’t going to stop Anna + Danny from promising forever on that January day. Danny’s father performed a quick elopement ceremony on Alabama’s highest point for his son and new daughter in law. Danny’s mom, Anna’s parents, and her […]
