Ella-via's Birthday

Ok, well I love parties! And this was a pretty great one. My niece Ella turned 4 this year and her mom did a pretty fantastic job on this little beauties big day! And of course what kind of "favorite aunt" would I be if I didn't take just a few shots of the throw-down.

Enjoy. And remember if you are having a birthday bash for your little bitty and are worried about documenting it...don't be! I am available for events. Get it booked today.

Birmingham Children Photography

This sweet girl is family, well sort of. This is Isabella, Ella's cousin.
Their Nana (Tammy) emailed me months ago about doing a session with all three girls outside at my parents house. So we started planning, and Nana bought lots of new clothes, shoes, and hair bows but every time we set a date it would rain...or someone was sick...or there was a very important game on...something always came up!
But alas we finally picked a day that was perfect and got all of these sweet girls together for one hot, and mean literally hot like temperature wise, photo session. Isabella was the star of this shoot, however; so I'm going to post a few of her all by herself for you to drool over for few days and then I'll post more from the whole day.

These might be my absolute favorites!

This little-bitty girl was quite the crier, that is until after about an hour of myself and her mother trying to make her happy, her daddy came in swept her up in his arms...and she stopped. And I mean, stopped immediately and never made another sound. Most of the images we got were from the last thirty minutes after her sweet daddy held her! What a beautiful site.
Marley James is just beautiful and I had a wonderful afternoon in her pale green nursery, surrounded by sweet pink accents and a sparkling crystal chandelier overhead. What a perfect place for this little beauty to lay her head.

I hope you will enjoy these as much as I enjoyed taking them.

Birmingham Maternity Photography

I must tell you that I was so excited when Lisa contacted me about doing a maternity series for the last four months of her pregnancy. And then after meeting Lisa for our first session, we realized we had been grade school classmates! Small world isn't it.
I love, love, love maternity sessions and I couldn't wait to get started on these and share them with the world. Lisa was a fabulous sport in the scorching September heat late last Friday afternoon and she was a breeze to photograph.
Five month pregnant ladies are a bit slower and don't tend to run from me like the usual youngsters I have to chase around, so it was definitely a nice change of pace!
I am so looking forward to our next meeting, thank you Lisa for the honor of documenting your first baby bump.

Enjoy a few images from Month 5.

Birmingham Wedding Photography

Remember this beautiful bride from my post last week?
Cory (my hubby) drove me all the way to Hartselle for this sweet wedding.And it did not disappoint! We spent all day on a fabulous Golf Course, with the sweetest people, lots of hot summer sun, and little butterfly that just would not leave my camera alone!

September 11! Today is a day I know that we all remember and it reminds us to cherish not only our freedoms but our loved ones. But this is not a post about that 9.11. , its a post about celebrating different 9.11. The one when our sweet Ella (my niece) was born!
That's right...she was born on 9.11 and today she is 4. Wow, this is such a crazy thing because I feel like it was just 5 minutes ago that I met and held her for the very first time.
If you don't know her, you are surely missing out. She is the most wonderful, smart, beautiful, little curly headed stinker that you will ever know! And I love her with every part of my soul.
Nana, Ella's grandmother and I had been planning a photo shoot with Ella, Sophie, and Isabella for some time, and today just happened to be the day we had planned. After our session we had a little time to play so Ella and I had our own shoot!
And what's better than handmade pinwheels, cupcakes, and the summer sun?
Pretty much only this sweet smile!

Happy Birthday El. I love you!
