Kelsea and Rob graciously invited me into their home on a cold, cloudy January morning for a newborn session with their new son Nolan! The weather many not have been very cheery, the love and joy surrounding this sweet family more then made up for it!
For what it’s worth, I believe one of the sweetest parts of any couple’s story can be how they met, and Jordan and Ari’s “meet cute” was serendipitous…
Earlier this summer, Jordan, Ari, and I got together for an engagement session at two of theirfavorite local spots – General, a cafe and general store, and SHOPPE, the most beautiful garden shop and greenhouse in all of Birmingham! It was a rainy afternoon, and we embraced the weather, wandering around with umbrellas in hand.
Today we have photos of Baby Reid and his sweet family! We spent a Sunday morning together in their beautiful home in Birmingham, Alabama. We had calm moments with Baby Reid, and also embraced the chaos of whole family photos with a toddler and a newborn! We got a kick out of Reid’s facial expressions, and laughed at the way his big brother put all of his energy into loving on him!
2020 has been the year of flexibility and changing plans and Anna and Andy have handled it all with such graciousness. Their wedding was at The Donnelly House – a classic Birmingham venue, and the day was full of joy!
The Starling family are dear friends! Katie was a college roommate, and every so often, I’ll make the drive to Auburn to take their family photos and stay for a visit. This session marked their daughter Elliot’s first birthday. We met up at The Red Barn and took photos around the property’s beautiful open space.
Anna and Andy chose to have their engagement photos taken at two iconic Birmingham locations – Historic Morris Avenue and Railroad Park. Their wedding is this coming weekend, and in celebration of their wedding week, here are a few favorite picks from their session!
This may sound incredibly cliche (I’ve heard someone else say this about a trip, and thought it was cheesy until I experienced it for myself), but I now think about my life as “Before England” and “After England”. This trip was better than I ever could have hoped for, and put in motion so many beautiful things in my life related to my career, health, relationships… I don’t know how it will ever be topped.
The night before their wedding, before their rehearsal dinner and the rest of the weekend’s festivities, Sarah and PJ made time for a quick portrait session in Downtown Birmingham.
