Samuel-Rhys | Dothan, AL Children Photography

This Christmas was one of the best in the 26 years I’ve lived. One, because my husband could go with me to my hometown and experience the traditions, the craziness, the food, and the family that belongs to me. I was affirmed during this time that I am indeed a rich woman. The icing on the carrot cake was that I spent invaluable time with my nephew Samuel, laughing, cooing, playing, and of course sticking my camera in his face. His cuteness revolves around his big personality and his extremely expressive face, so of course I was thrilled to post these photos we took on Christmas Eve.

Everage Family

After a few months pass and I get to organizing everything, I sometimes get the itch to go through photos from past sessions and play with them in a totally new way. And sometimes I find photos that are completely new and it’s like, “wow, I don’t remember this one!”

Back in June, a sweet mother of two approached me about taking photos of her family. She wanted to break out of the studio bubble and take a chance on some natural light photography, and bravo to her for doing so! These photos really tell the story of the relationship between this sweet family.  I just recently revisited the session and realized I never blogged about it!  Here I am, almost six months later showing you how these blonde-headed cutie-pies charmed both me and my camera.

Mitch + Brittany | Wedding

Being a part of Brittany and Mitchs’ wedding day stirred up many different things within. First, their sweet love reminded me of my husband (always does) but not only that, they were relaxed and gathered so I was relaxed and gathered. Most wedding photographers can tell you that such is a rare occurrence, but my lovely assistant and I just enjoyed their day so much than we had planned.
Don’t get me wrong, I love weddings. I am a perpetual lover of weddings. But shooting a wedding is hard work, so it is tremendous to walk away from a wedding feeling like I’ve taken a piece of that Love home with me. While celebrating and documenting with Brittany and Mitch on June 5, this was certainly the case. They departed from the reception in a vintage white limo and honeymooned on a beach close to Cancun, Mexico.
