Birmingham Maternity Photography


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!

Birmingham & Chelsea, Alabama Maternity Photographer | Brandi

This mommy-to-be braved a cold day (which seems to be few and far between this winter!) in her beautiful dress. Luckily, temperature doesn’t show up in pictures, and the ones we got a GORGEOUS! I am in love with the perfect sunflare photos at the beautiful Birmingham Botanical Gardens (one of my favorite spots for outdoor sessions). They also sneaked in their adorable puppy – the current baby of the family. I can’t wait to see how she adjusts to having a little sibling!

Hoover, Alabama Maternity Photographer | Brittany

I met Brittany and her husband at Heardmont Park in Oak Mountain. They are expecting identical twin boys in October – who I can’t wait to meet and photograph for their newborn pictures! I had a wonderful evening with this fun couple, and we got some really amazing portraits! By the end of our session, that perfect window for golden light hit and we got some truly magical pictures. I love the blue and white dress that Brittany wore for part of the session – it looked stunning on her!

Birmingham & Chelsea, Alabama Maternity Photography | Animeeta

I have enjoyed seeing Animeeta progress through her pregnancy. I was able to photograph her Gender Reveal Party – complete with throwing blue powder in the air (“It’s a boy!”). I also got to experience an amazing baby shower, with beautiful cultural traditions. We got some beautiful sunset pictures out at Railroad Park in Birmingham (my first time there, and boy is it a beautiful and thriving little park!). Then I also got to capture some sweet newborn pictures of little Bryson once he arrived.

Birmingham & Chelsea, Alabama Maternity Photography | Madhulika

This beautiful shoot is another one from last Fall. We got some beautiful pictures with the lovely autumn foliage out at Oak Mountain State Park. Gorgeous mom-to-be Madhulika was actually feeling pretty bad for the session, but you couldn’t tell by looking at the beautiful pictures we got. She was just glowing with her pregnancy! It’s also worth mentioning that we hit that Golden Hour lighting perfectly!

Birmingham, Alabama Maternity Photographer | Victoria 1

My sister-in-law is due in November with a sweet little girl. I am so proud of her and my brother and know they will make fantastic parents when little Charlotte arrives. A little backstory – Victoria found out she was pregnant earlier this year. Everything was going great (she even avoided any morning sickness). Fast forward to the end of May. My brother, Todd, was having headaches and started having some double vision. A trip to the eye doctor sent him in for an MRI. They received devastating news – Todd had a brain tumor. Initially, the only thing we knew was that it was not in a location that would be operable. With the help of Victoria’s amazing sister, Eva, Todd was able to somehow get in to see Dr. Fisher – one of the best neurosurgeons – at UAB. Within a WEEK Todd was scheduled for brain surgery with a hopeful prognosis. The surgery was successful – Dr. Fisher was able to remove nearly all of the tumor. After 6.5? weeks of radiation, Todd is now in remission! The most amazing thing, to me was both Todd and Victoria’s positive attitudes during the whole ordeal. They are truly an inspiration with how upbeat they remained and how determined they were to beat Todd’s┬ádiagnosis. I am so proud of them, and I know they will pass on that positive attitude to Charlotte.

While we were at the beach this past week, I took some maternity pictures to document this beautiful time in Victoria’s pregnancy. She was just glowing and Todd looks great as well!

Birmingham, Alabama Maternity Photographer | Ware Family 1

I had the privilege of photographing this beautiful family for maternity session a couple of weeks ago. I absolutely love how the pictures turned out! I really like how each person dressed in a different solid color, making a beautiful color palette of purple, yellow, red, and the green grass/trees. I love a good vibrant color scheme! ­čÖé This little boy was such a sweetheart. He was so excited about his little brother growing in mommy’s tummy. He also knew exactly what my camera was for and kept mentioning that they had one at home! He clearly had good practice with it and said “CHEEEESE!” every time he saw me point it at him. Such a cutie!

Birmingham & Chelsea, Alabama Maternity Photographer | Karli

My beautiful cousin drove up from Mobile, Alabama so that I could take some maternity pictures. She is just glowing at 8 months pregnant. I had fun working with Karli and her new fiance, Jack. Oh – did I mention that I got to photograph their proposal? It was very sweet to witness such a moving event. Check out the images here! Anyways, Karli is just gorgeous so I had a blast photographing her! And I LOVED her flowing maternity dress that she brought for her second outfit. It was so romantic and beautiful! And the Birmingham Botanical Gardens was the perfect location for our early morning shoot.

Birmingham, Alabama Photographer | The Proposal 1

I had the fortune of photographing a proposal the other day. How fun is that? That is such a special moment in one’s life! I still remember my own proposal (and all the ways I unknowingly tried to ruin my husband’s planning). Guys – if you can, I would highly suggest having someone there to capture that moment for you! Your future wife will thank you! And having a professional photographer there will help with you discreetness and even planning. It is definitely worth looking into. You will be so caught up in that moment that once it is over – it is so hard to remember what happened! That moment should be a special moment, maybe even secret. But a good photographer will be able to capture just enough of the moment that you have that privacy as well as beautiful memories!
