Happy Birthday Drennen!!!




















I can't begin to tell you what a happy, loving and carefree baby Drennen is!  He celebrated his very first birthday with a close group of friends and family this past weekend.  Drennen didn't want to miss out on all the fun and was able to hang out with all his special guest for the duration of the afternoon.

Every little detail was perfect.. from the cute popcorn cups and machine to the paper lantern caterpillar.  He had a caterpillar themed birthday and all the decor, including the cake and cupcake were brightly colored with greens, reds and yellow.

All his cousins attended and had just as much fun as the birthday boy did!  After a full day of play and a full tummy.. he could be found unwinding with his beautiful mommy.. A day well done!!!  Drennen is now one!

I would love to thank the Turpin family for allowing me to spend a very important day with them and their loved ones as we celebrated Drennen's 1st Birthday Party!

It was the perfect party to welcome a beautiful  baby boy into what I call 'toddlerhood'.

412 Public House






















 Yesterday afternoon I discovered my new favorite place to hang out in Cullman!  I was assigned to photograph a new business called 412 Public House.  They opened just three months ago and word is already spreading like wildfire about their excellent drink list, yummy food and amazing fun and energetic staff!

These guys showed me some of their best selling items and I also got up close and personal with how those specialty drinks are made.  These guys put in a lot of care and skill for their prep work.

I left feeling inspired and wanting to return with my husband to the 412 Public House.  Cullman has always been my home away from home so I do predict a visit to the lake soon.. and we just might have to make a pit-stop to see these guys.

If you haven't already, check them out!  They are open Tuesday through Sunday and are located downtown Cullman at 412 2nd Ave. SE !!

Tell them Leigh Ann Photography sent you :)

Kensey & Trent








I am just over the moon happy to be back in touch with Kensey!  She has turned into a beautiful young lady and is getting married this fall!! I have had the opportunity to photograph her for family photos in the past, so capturing her engagement photos was a nice walk down memory lane!

Her handsome beau, Trent was a great sport during our HOT and HUMID session.. It decided to be the hottest day up to the year this past weekend when we met up.  They pulled it off really well though, as you can't see one ounce of sweat on them!

The city provided ample shade and the occasional breeze if you stood in the right spot!!

I enjoyed exploring the streets of Birmingham as well as venturing to new locations.  The city is never lacking in photo opps and it was a lot of fun catching up with everyone.

Ashlyn & Corey








This past Sunday was one of those days that I have been looking forward to a mini-get-away with work. It's been long over-due to have taken engagement photos as well as take a road trip with photography.

Yes.. I still claim not to shoot weddings but on occasion, I have been known to be coaxed into it!  This is just a small example on why I couldn't wait to be a part of this beautiful couple's new ventures!

Ashlyn has been a part of my life and hometown for many years now and the camera loves her!  Her gracious and down-to-earth, happy-go-lucky spirit as well as warm and natural smile can make any photo magical!

I also loved having the opportunity to meet Corey!  Seeing the two of them interact during our photo session was just the sweetest thing to capture and what better way to capture this amazing couple's story than on the movie set from BIG FISH..

"They say when you meet the love of your life, time stops, and that's true. What they don't tell you is that when it starts again, it moves extra fast to catch up." - ED BLOOM ( BIG FISH )

Congratulations to these guys on their recent engagement and upcoming nuptials!!  Enjoy every moment.. it's going to fly by if you let it!
