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!

Leatherman | Birmingham, Alabama Couples Photographer

This couple was very adventurous for their Christmas Mini Session! When I first met them, they had already scouted out a spot for pictures – across a muddy bank. I was game, it looked gorgeous! (This was also at Oak Mountain’s Heardmont Park in Birmingham, Alabama, by the way). They both cautiously made their way across the muddy slope, and up the muddy bank to the patch of land. I proceeded to follow, and immediately my feet slipped out from under me and I landed smack on my behind. Lovely. My entire backside was covered in mud! Luckily, they didn’t mock my clumsiness and my camera was safe (that’s the most important thing, right?) so we continued on. We got some absolutely lovely pictures with the river in the background – so it was totally worth it! I love how soft the light was and how golden these pictures turned out. Just perfect! Plus, it was so wonderful to see how in love these two were. You could just tell how much they cared for each other. It was so beautiful to capture!

Spink | Birmingham, Alabama Couples Photography

I work with Christy at Infinity, and she has come to be a great friend to me! Unfortunately, they got stuck in terrible traffic on the way to their Christmas Mini Session, so we were a little rushed. But I think we managed to get some wonderful portraits of these tow. They were such a lovely couple to work with – and I absolutely loved the red outfits. They really popped against the trees. These pictures were also taken at Oak Mountain’s Heardmont Park in Birmingham, Alabama. I hope to get the opportunity to capture some more pictures of these two again soon! They are such kind people and it is such a pleasure to work with Christy. Make sure to scroll all the way through to the last photograph. It is my favorite!

Birmingham, Alabama Maternity Photographer | Hutchinson

This maternity photography session was also done in Huntsville at Monte Sano Park. Have I mentioned how much I love the Fall? Especially at this gorgeous park! And these two were troopers! I had them on the ground, up, laying down, standing up… they got a workout! But we sure did get some beautiful pictures out of it!

Birmingham, Alabama Couples Photography | Herkes

My best friend came into town a couple of years ago to visit. She lives with her husband in Scotland where they run a “castle hotel” called Craigsanquhar. You should definitely stay there if you ever find yourself in Scotland! So, anyways, we had a quick little couples photography shoot.
