The first time I met Sam, his relationship with Dana was fairly new. I immediately noticed how much he made her laugh. This was the case at their engagement session and again at their intimate spring wedding. This has easily become my favorite thing about how well Sam loves Dana. Dana + Sam’s Douglas Manor […]

Proposals make me nervous. But in a good way. Like butterflies in your stomach when you buckle in on a roller coaster. But when Steven contacted me about shooting his horseback riding adventure proposal, my heart was filled with excitement and joy! The big day was scheduled for September 5th which just so happens to […]

He woke up from his nap. Standing, holding the edge of his crib. Just smiling, probably pooping. Waiting patiently for someone to come get him. His parents and big brother had been chatting excitedly about it for days. It was time to go capture Sweet Baby James first birthday smash cake session! But ominous rain […]

I had been eyeing that field for awhile now. The one with the yellow flowers. I see it almost every day, usually more than once a day. I love to watch how the light hits it as the sun sets. Since a for sale sign had gone up months ago, it was hit or miss […]

The days are long, but the years are short. This first year, was so short. The days, filled with Covid-19 quarantine, working from home without childcare, were so long. But they were so special. They were so unlike any other. Those memories I know we will end up cherishing for our lifetime. I couldn’t wait […]

Rachel greeted me at the front door on a hot Saturday afternoon in August with a smile on her face. But that’s nothing new, as Rachel is always smiling! She welcomed me into their home, a place she and Brett are so happy to be settled into with Baby Samuel! It was a great day […]

I was ten minutes away from The Sunflower Field when the sky turned black in the distance. There had been no rain on the radar all day long. Casey’s makeup was flawless. Her hair was perfectly done, with just a hint of baby’s breath tucked in the back. She was wearing the most beautiful custom […]

I pulled into Downtown Birmingham and parked easily. Normally it takes a lap or two around the block and requires a parallel park before I can snag a spot. Normally I have to walk a little. But times aren’t normal. Living in the times of Covid-19, there’s a lot of abnormal. There has been so […]

This school year didn’t end like anyone had planned it. All our favorite Mountain Chapel Preschool spring traditions didn’t get to happen. No music program, no art show, no class picture, no May Day Play Day. I cried and grieved when Dixon’s last year of preschool abruptly came to an unexpected and shortened end. Like […]
