Catherine 9 month Baby Session

This baby session was one of our favorites. At 9-months, Catherine is really starting to express herself and study everything.  Her happy and intuitive spirit just draws you in. And we just love her head of red hair! We had fun with this baby session and let her interact with mom the most, but she was eager to explore everything. We also took advantage of her nursery curtains and created a perfect backdrop. It was just the right touch to tie it all together. This ended up being such a sweet group of photos to celebrate for this little one. …

Feature Model for February 2014 – Amanda

Starting in February, we decided to have a feature model showcased on our site that helped us in our promotion and sweepstakes graphics for that month. Today we are featuring some of the photos from Amanda’s shoot for February. Amanda is a new resident to the downtown area, so it was only appropriate to photograph her in the Birmingham sunset on her roof deck. These photos made it very difficult to narrow down to just one for our graphic. See for yourself just how gorgeous these rooftop photos turned out, and see if you can find our final photo. Make …

Family Christmas Session – The Bowman’s

Christmas has passed but we couldn’t resist sharing this family session of the Bowman trio from December. Adam and Amy contacted us with a request for a Christmas session to use on holiday cards. We wanted to incorporate Christmas while keeping it family centered so these could double as photos for their home. We met in the Cosby Lake Park on a beautiful day in December just before the tree lighting ceremony. The weather was perfect for playing around and walking through the park, and Evan took advantage of the walking part! This little guy was dressed to impress and …

Pell City Wedding Photography – Amanda & Josh

Amanda and Josh’s Pell City wedding was a mystical blend of their families and backgrounds. The attention to detail made this day stand out – every element was carefully thought through. There was lace, fields of grass, wood burned signs, barbecue sauce, and a cotton wreath. It could not have been more southern vintage.  The colors were a sea foam green with lots of white and natural elements sprinkled throughout. And although they are now in Pell City, Auburn and Harpersville had to be represented in the day too! See a few photos from their day and see for yourself …
