Mom

Mom

It's Mothers Day and this year I wanted to do something a little out of the ordinary. I called my dad a few days ago and asked him to send me a few photos of my mom and our family over the years. Of course, I have plenty of other photos of her from my adult life, but it was important to me that I use the ones from growing up. The ones dad picked out. The ones that show how life was through someone else's eyes. Of course I threw some of their favorites of me in there too... *wink wink*. 

UNIQUE CONFERENCE 2017 | PLANTED | CityHope Malbis

UNIQUE CONFERENCE 2017 | PLANTED | CityHope Malbis

I have had the pleasure of attending CityHope since late 2013- back when it was Bay Community and we met in a small room that is now used for KidCity. (Who's with me!?) When I first moved to Spanish Fort I was pretty much alone, had just found out that we were expecting Chloe and I was desperate for community. I was desperate for friends, for women to invest in my life, for Jesus, for a miracle... desperate....

Dusty Blue and Pink Bridal Inspo | The Lange Farm | Dade City, Florida

I partnered up with some members of the Tampa Tuesday’s Together group a couple of months ago with a vision to put together an incredible romantic European-inspired shoot for when I would be traveling in the area.

Bethany + Tommy | Disney's Magic Kingdom Engagement

I can't believe that it has already been an entire week since I was prepping for this incredible dream shoot at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom! I mean, what better place on Earth to celebrate your love for one another than the most magical place on Earth?! 

Bethany + Tommy have been coming to Disney together since pretty much their third date and he even pushed her around after she broke BOTH feet last year! They had talked about their hopes and dreams and even discussed how they saw their engagement and marriage and when it came time for Tommy to pop the question...

My Picks On The BEST Dresses This Season For An Engagement Session

My Picks On The BEST Dresses This Season For An Engagement Session

MY TOP TEN SPRING DRESSES FOR ENGAGEMENTS + COUPLES

So many times I have clients who fret about what to wear for their engagement or portrait sessions. They usually spend days, even weeks, shopping for the perfect outfit to wear for the images that they hope to display for the rest of their lives. I was looking for a dress for myself the other day and when I came across this first dress I thought "Man, I wish my clients would show up in something like this for an engagement shoot. This would photograph beautifully." and then I thought- "AH! They can't know how to dress if someone doesn't TELL them!" ....

Mallory | Countryside Senior Session

Mallory | Countryside Senior Session

I love weddings, I hope to do them for a long, long time. But the one thing I love to shoot the most (other than weddings) are Seniors. I love getting to know them and see their personalities and sweet spirits come alive in my camera. It's almost like I get to go back in time for just a little while and relive those days myself when life was carefree and fun and my only responsibilities were making sure I showed up to the football game on time. These moments seem to last forever when you're in them and then the next thing you know you're planning the trip to go to your high-school reunion.

Kayla and Dent met me in Downtown Fairhope on Sunday afternoon and while we were walking to our first shoot location I asked them if they would share their story with me. It's so important to me that I invest in getting to know my clients on a personal level and what better way to start that process than by hearing their very own love story?!
