• Hey You!

    I am an artist that seeks to bring back to life the innocent beauty that once when a child. I want to bring out the real you, the forgotten you, the beautiful you. I am a natural light, boutique photographer based in Northern Alabama specializing in senior and wedding portraiture.
    I am not your traditional type photographer, as my heart races with excitement to dig deeper into who you are as an individual. You will walk away with a flare of poetic imagery that screams your name. I look forward to meeting you, hugging you, and becoming friends.

 

The first of June I traveled down to Fort Worth, Texas to shoot one of my husbands former students while we lived there. I had taken her senior pictures, and when we were taking them, we both talked about how cool it be for me to shoot her wedding one day. I had no idea it be so soon after! ๐Ÿ™‚ It was shortly after we moved to Alabama I got a call from her, and was beyond excited and honored to shoot her wedding…you will see why…she is GORGEOUS!!

Here are just a few pretty details I could not keep to myself any longer. ๐Ÿ™‚

I truly believe anyone can get where they want to with their business. Of course we all have to work at it, and it does not come to us all overnight. I remember when I started out with my business, I would take on any and every subject possible. I found out really quick newborn photography was not for me. All the unexpected poo and pee, ton of props, and patience just was not working for me. My own children’s bodily functions were enough for me. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I knew that I had always loved working with teenage girls in college, and even when I was high school I was drawn to middle school and younger high schoolers. I never knew I’d end up with such an amazing dream job–taking portraits for unique girls and brides.

It’s crazy that I am right where I want to be in my business. Working with seniors, couples, and weddings.

Here is a sweet shot of Katelynn. I love the fact that she found my work through Pinterest. ๐Ÿ™‚ And to that….I shall pin her picture right now. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I CRAVE the sun, if it is not a sunny day for a photo shoot I almost want to cancel. I use to fear the sun when I first began shooting sessions. I would look everywhere for shade…shade…and more shade….and now if I have a client in shade I am SO bored. The sun is what spices up my pics, and of course my lovely subjects. ๐Ÿ˜‰ So, here is some sunshine to end your evening. ๐Ÿ™‚

Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, Did God really say, You must not eat from any tree in the garden? Gen. 3:1

 

Temptation–a battle we must face every day………..

    wow these turned out AMAZING!!!ReplyCancel

 

 

Country chic meets Hollywood. This bride oozed with beauty that reminded me of Hollywood glamour. However, her sweet southern twang would give away she was not from the West and all southern. ๐Ÿ˜‰

When arriving to the venue I knew it was going to be filled with glorious details. The barn was nestled back into the woods, with glorious hills surrounding. I will let the pictures tell the story…..

 

 

My favorite part of her dress was the lace that came up and around her neck. So classic, southern, and beautiful.

I wanted to take home all of the bridesmaids dresses. All came from Altered State and Prestons. Love those places!

Her dress, veil, bouquet all were DIVINE.

I always love seeing the bride and groom examine the ring on the groom for the first time.

The grooms attire fit him perfectly. Jeans and boots.

my favorite part of the ceremony…a time of prayer over this sweet couple.
