Exciting News & Mini Sessions : Birmingham, AL Photographer

Hi Friends! Sorry for such an absence lately we have had some pretty changes around here.

So let's start with that, I'm officially full time freelance photographer/ stay at home mom! Yep, it happened and I'm pumped.
It's been quite an adjustment but we are handling it well, and Hudson (my 17th month old) is LOVING it, to say the least.
The biggest change though has been the job aspect of our lives. My best friend and I have started a new business together! If one photographer is a good idea then two is twice as good, right?! That's what we thought too. So here it is ..... Spark & Arrow!
Please go check out our portfolio at SparkandArrow.com, follow us on Instagram at Spark and Arrow Creative and email us if you are in need of any photography or styling services at sparkandarrowcreative@gmail.com. We would absolutely love to be a part of your life!

I'll still be updating this blog periodically but Spark & Arrow is where most of the action will be!
Thank you all for so many years or love and support, I can't wait to see you in the new year at Spark & Arrow!

But enough business for now let's talk something more fun! This year I had so many requests for Mini Sessions in the fall that I've had to do three days! And they were some of my absolute favorites, so I'm really excited to post a few from my second day shooting out at Ross Bridge. I met so many new families and made lots of new friends and hopefully return customers in the process! 

Enjoy these few images and come back later this week for more!

the Hendrick family : family portrait photography : birmingham, al

This is one of my most favorite families! And I love photographing them, and they sure do make it easy. Look at those beautiful faces. 

Ryan has been in my life a long, long time. She is more like sister than anything. She is my sister's best friend, and they tortured me as a child! I'm so grateful to be a part of her families lives and capture them as they grow.

Her kids make my job easy and fun!

Enjoy their sweet faces.

Larkin : One Year : Mt. Laurel, AL

What a sweet little bit this girl is. We had blast at Mt. Laurel making her 1 year pics a few weeks ago! I have been so honored to be with her parents when they got married, and take her newborn pictures, and now her 1 year pics. I can't wait to watch her grow!

Enjoy her precious smile!

Sophie Kae : Birthday Party : Chelsea, AL

Who doesn't love a Ballerina birthday party!!

This little bit is Sophie Kae, and she is a dancing queen! So what better way to spend her big day turning 4, than with her sweet friends dancing.

From Nutter-Butter cookies turned ballet slippers to handmade tu-tu party favors this party was fit for a queen! or a Ballerina!

Enjoy this sweet birthday party full of pink and fluff!

Evie : Birthday Party : Helena, AL

You might recognize this sweet face! Evie has seen the blog several times before, here and here!

But this is a special post about Evie, because she just turned 1!!
Her mom did a pretty incredible job throwing her Irish inspired birthday bash. She had tiny shepherds pies and lucky charm rice-crispy treats to munch on and then little bitty sheep terrariums to take home!

It was a party meant to leave an impression, and oh how it did. Evie was so perfect, happy, and pretty excited to be the center of attention for a day!
Enjoy these few details from her very special 1st birthday party!

Chaney : Portraits : Vincent, AL

This is Chaney. Isn't she lovely? 

 Chaney is my cousin and we were sneaky and took these at her 16th birthday party as a surprise for her mother.
I was so please with how they turned out and couldn't wait to have them printed and framed for her!
I loved the sass on her face! She is a natural beauty with so much life, joy, and light. 
These show off her personality so perfectly! 

Enjoy, friends!

Cousins : Family Photography : Birimingham, AL

" Six kids in one shoot? Sure I can do that! "
This was the conservation I had when a friend asked to do a combined session for her and her sister-in-law as a surprise Christmas gift! 

I'd say this is a pretty successful shot of all six kids! =) 


I love this family and I'm always so honored to photograph them! Check out Amy's Monogram and gifts business on Facebook at Tootlebugs! 


Bowen Winford : Newborn : Vestavia, AL

Oh, friends...you are going to die over these newborn images! 
Meet Bowen! 

Precious, right? His mom and I met about three years ago through a mutual friend and we became fast friends. You have to go back and see her amazing wedding...here.  
I love when clients keep me around for more and more and now I've gotten to photograph Bowen too! 
I'm so looking forward to getting to watch him grow up!

Shaun & Abbie : Birmingham Weddings : Greystone, AL

I do love weddings, don't you? 

Meet Abbie and Shaun. We planned almost entire year out for her big day and by the time the actual day came, I was pretty excited to say the least! Greystone Country Club was wonderful and made for an amazing backdrop for their traditional wedding. 
Enjoy a few of my favorites from the day.
