Birmingham & Chelsea, Alabama Baby Photographer | Spring Mini Sessions | Baby Girl Edith

Edith is a doll baby! She is 8 months old and already on the move! She wore an ADORABLE little romper custom-made by her mom. It had a big bow and bonnet to match! I was obsessed! She also had a precious little purple dress that was mom’s when she was a baby – I LOVE sentimental items! Plus, the adorable quilt was made by momma too! Edith is such a sweet, little girl!

Birmingham & Chelsea, Alabama Family Photography | Spring Mini Sessions | Boyington Family

This sweet family has been such a joy to get to know. My little ones often have playdates with these adorable little girls. In fact, Evie is actually just a few weeks younger than my Lucy – I can’t wait to see them grow up together! We had such a fun time at Birmingham Botanical Gardens getting some gorgeous family pictures. We were putting on quite a silly show trying to get the girls to laugh and smile. I am not even sure what Daddy was doing behind my back, but it was sure getting us some big laughs!

Birmingham & Chelsea, Alabama Baby Photographer | Cake Smash | Hannon is One Year Old!

I always love a fun cake smash – all babies seem to have different reactions to the new experience of cake: the texture, the sugary taste, the permission to make a mess! I loved Hannon’s session, and he loved his cake! Dad is a drummer, so we had an especially cool drum cake stand. Hannon also had this adorable leg kick (think Thumper from Bambi) that I think meant he really liked it. So once that leg got going, he was definitely enjoying himself! Happy first birthday, Hannon!

Birmingham & Chelsea, Alabama Newborn Photography | Baby Girl Reagan

This beautiful little girl came to the studio at 5 days old. She was such a doll baby! I love the colors for this session, purple and blue and pink. I also am loving the family portraits with the gorgeous pink/coral colors on Mom and Dad. It photographed beautifully on Reagan’s olive skin! And that head of hair was perfection! It’s always so fun to see lots of hair on newborns, since both of my babies have been nearly bald! (Lucy is just now starting to grow a little hair on her head and she is 5 months!) Welcome to the world sweet baby girl!

Birmingham & Chelsea, Alabama Baby Boy Photographer | Liam is One | Grow With Me | Cake Smash

I have so enjoyed watching Liam grow over this past year! His first session was at three months old, and then we had sessions every 3 months afterwards to document his growth. I can’t say enough how fast babies seem to grow! They change SO much over their first year of life – which is why I LOVE doing Grow With Me packages! Liam is such a mobile little guy, as most one year olds are! But he was such a good little model, even though he wasn’t quite too sure about his cake at first. Make sure you check out Liam’s 3 Month Milestone Session, as well as his 6 Month Milestone Session, and his 9 Month Milestone Session to see how much he has changed over this past year!

Birmingham & Chelsea, Alabama Newborn Photographer | Baby Boy Ledger

This sweet little man was my first newborn in my new studio. I am loving the extra room – and I think parents probably will too! I love the colors in the session – the mint and gray, and then the blue and wood-brown. Ledger’s nursery is a woodland theme, so I had fun with finding woodsy props to use for his session. I am loving the results! Aren’t those family pictures perfect?!

Birmingham & Chelsea, Alabama Baby Photographer | Baby Girl Lucy is 5 Months | Grow With Me

Lucy is 5 months old. I seriously cannot believe she is almost half a year old! How is this going by so fast? Lucy is a joy. She loves blowing raspberries and banging her legs and trying to make you laugh. She LOVES watching and trying to grab big brother. She is still sleeping great through the night, but continues to nap best in someone’s arms or her swing. She also can always be calmed down by momma’s singing or humming. Her favorites are “Hammers and Strings” and “Rockaby Baby.” She has just started having some bad reflux again after we started trying solids, so we are holding off on that now to see if her tummy gets better.

Noah is becoming such a sweet big brother. He still loves to fetch things and help momma, but he also loves cuddling with Lucy now, and he will try to play with her (letting her pull his hair or kick him). He even tried to help daddy carry her the other day.

Lucy is sitting on her own now (WHAT?!), although she was not happy to be doing it for pictures today. She doesn’t want to roll much anymore and hates tummy time now (possibly because her tummy hurts, but who knows…). She also is obsessed with her feet (whether she is grabbing them or splashing them!).

Birmingham & Chelsea, Alabama Maternity Photographer | Smitha

This beautiful mommy-to-be was a pleasure to work with. We went to the gorgeous Birmingham Botanical Gardens, one of their favorite places in Birmingham! The flowers there are starting to really bloom, and it is just perfect. They are going to make wonderful parents to their sweet little girl when she arrives in just a few short weeks!
