Birmingham & Chelsea, Alabama Child Photography | Rylee

I wasn’t able to meet up with this family last fall for Fall Mini Sessions, but luckily we were able to find a pretty day this Spring to take some beautiful pictures of little Rylee. She was absolutely adorable, with such a cute personality! Rylee thought I was a bit crazy (as most kids seem to), I’m sure, but we got some precious smiles. She was too smart, telling me all her ABCs and 123s, and calling out my silly animal sounds (you mean a cow doesn’t say “woof”?). I love how beautiful this session turned out!

Birmingham & Chelsea, Alabama Children’s Photographer | Noah Meet Thomas the Tank Engine

My (not-so) baby boy is turning 3 in about a week. Wow, does time fly! For his birthday, his Grandma and Poppy got him tickets to ride Thomas the Tank Engine! (We LOVE Thomas!!!) Noah was so excited for his ride. He came up to me at one point and said, “So… WHAT are we going to do about getting to ride Thomas? What are we going to do about getting tickets?” This kid is hilarious!

Thomas was amazing, even to a silly adult like myself! He was lifesize (of course) and even moved his mouth and eyes when he talked! Noah was completely enthralled. My normally outgoing, chatterbox of a boy was nearly silent the whole time. He was just silently taking in everything around him. It was perfectly adorable. Plus, I was able to get a few (difficult) pictures on the vacant train tracks there for his third birthday portraits. Noah is a true photographer’s kid and HATES to pose, look at me, or smile for pictures. Take note of his “SMILE” that is really more of a “stop it mom” grimace.

Definitely take advantage of the Heart of Dixie Railroad Museum in Calera, Alabama if you have a chance. Especially if your little one is as into trains as Noah is! My big boy has not been able to stop talking about it – “Thomas was at the front of the train and a diesel was at the back.” (He knows more than I do about this stuff!

Photographer’s Note

Photography should never be attempted on live train tracks. There have been way too many recorded instances of injuries or deaths as a result of trying to do a photoshoot on train tracks. Please always use caution. These images are taken on a non-active track with in-active trains at a railroad museum.

Chelsea & Birmingham, Alabama Photographer | Happy Father’s Day

A belated Father’s Day, but a Happy Father’s Day to all those dads out there. This year, my son Noah and I completed a quick little picture project for his Daddy and his Poppy. Notice the “Dusty” airplane in his hand for all the pictures, because SOMEBODY wouldn’t sit still and participate without it. Luckily they turned out adorable even with our favorite toy included. I especially love his “A” and “O” expressions (he was actually saying “A” and “O”).

I Love Daddy

Birmingham, Alabama Children’s Photographer | Grandchildren

I got to hang out with this cute bunch right before Christmas. It was a rainy, yucky day – but we managed to avoid the rain for a short time and get some pictures for their grandmother’s Christmas present. I loved the coordination of the kids clothes. Spunky older sister was such a good little model, and the babies showed off with their big, beautiful eyes and adorable smiles! Little man laughed the entire session, I think. And most importantly, I think their grandmother is going to cherish these memories forever!

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! 🙂 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, Alabama Baby Photography | SP is One!

Have I mentioned that I love doing cake smash photos. We had so much fun with this PURPLE photo shoot. I love vibrant colors that really pop and this sweet girl looked just beautiful surrounded by lavenders and purple! This was such a sweet family that was a pleasure to work with. I love the pictures at the end of our shoot showing the adorable interaction between big brother and little sister.
