Scott & Raleigh



























There was not an empty seat this past weekend for the wedding of Raleigh and Scott!  It was such a beautiful occassion down to every little detail.  This was my first wedding to photograph at Cullman's latest event space, LOFT 212..

I loved everything about the venue and felt right at home with the Reid and Motes family.

As many already know, I practically grew up with Raleigh's older brother from all the summer's spent at Smith lake in Cullman , so I would like to personally thank her big brother Graf for the referral.

It was great to be a part of such a wonderful celebration of two families joining together.  Raleigh's groom, Scott, was such a sweet heart and his daughter, Leighton was just adorable.  She has far succeeded the flower girl's duties.. She posed when asked, she was just a doll.. All smiles for sure!

Thank you again for making this one of my all time favorite weddings to put down in the books..

Henry { mini }





Henry!!!!  Yay!!! I finally got to meet the little man.  I was there on his daddy and mommy's wedding day a few years back as their wedding photographer so, as always.. it is humbling and a great honor to carry on to their next chapter in life.

Henry just turned one this past Saturday, so he is not walking just yet but he seemed just fine sitting on the comfort of the quilt I brought for our mini session.

Our mini was the perfect fit for him.  We were able to get a few variations that I hope his mom and dad can enjoy to document this fun age.

It was most definitely a great way to start out my day.. Lower temps, sunny skies and a cute little guy to photograph!!

Fidelis Capital






I enjoyed starting out my week with these awesome professionals and would like to thank them for using my photographic services for their business.  They are a financial firm called Fidelis Capital and have been helping many businesses with their financial portfolios since 2001.

As any business often does, it was time for some updated head shots.  These guys have the perfect office space and location to make their session super easy, convenient and fun!

I enjoyed meeting this talented group of hardworking professionals and am happy to hear that their fellow office mates had sent them my way when that time came for their head shots.

Dawson & Drake {MINI}






Due to all the rain we've been having, I feel that my calendar is a game of Tetris.  It's a puzzle of reschedules and changing time slots that must all fit and flow together.

I was really happy to see Dawson and Drake as one of my reschedules from last weekend's weather mishap. We were able to grab some cute photos for Dawson's one year mini-session.  Drake, his older brother, was a lot of help and didn't seem to mind following his baby brother around in hopes we could grab some photos of the two of them.

Dawson is loving his new found freedom of walking and I must add, he is quick!  

Here are a handful of my personal favorites that I wanted to share with you all.  Such handsome boys!!

The Andertons












What a great weekend to celebrate family.  Not only was it Mother's Day on Sunday but it was also Mr. Anderton's birthday.  I was so happy to have met the rest of the Andertons after having met and befriended Nancy, their daughter a handful of years ago.

Since then I photographed their grandson Grayson and now I have the honor to photograph all of them!

These guys were a lot of fun and such an easy going group.  We met for their session at the beautiful Anderton homefront.  I can only imagine how special this place is as this is where they raised their family and I am sure it holds many dear memories for everyone.

I loved the backdrop of the classic car as well as the lush, green scenery and pond.  It really was perfect!  We really couldn't of asked for a prettier day and it is always good to see Nancy and her family.

The Johnson Fam












This past Mother's Day weekend I was able to hang out and photograph some amazing families.. The Johnson family is one of the families whom I have come to know very well over the many years.

 I was best friends with Todd's younger sister all through high school, so it's nice to keep touch with them and so awesome that they think of me for photography services.

Lyla and Willa are the cutest sisters and seeing them change and grow over the past handful of years has reminded me that time does not stand still for anyone!!

We met at a beautiful private location owned by Lisa's dad.  It was the perfect session.. well, apart from stickers in grass and bee stings.. Yes, we literally had not taken the first photo yet and little Willa was stung on her foot in the grass and it wasn't long after that Lyla stepped on a sharp sticker on the lawn.

I didn't say country living was easy did I?

They were troopers though, and despite the mishaps.. I do believe we captured some sweet moments.
