Huntsville & Madison’s Best Family Pet Photographer – Ben & Ripley

Y’all.  I am most definitely not an official “pet photographer”…

However

I am completely addicted to documenting relationships, and this right here is exactly that. <3  I get requests somewhat regularly from clients to see if it is OK to bring their pet along with them to their shoot.  My answer? “If you consider them to be a part of your family, ABSOLUTELY bring them!”

I also don’t shoot family sessions the months of December and January.  I do allow for time sensitive circumstances such as a newborn, maternity and end of life situations…

When Ben contacted me, he explained that Ripley didn’t have much time left and he desperately wanted to document this pup that he considers family. ” I don’t suspect he’ll be around in a few weeks as he has bad arthritis and potentially some internal issue.”  It broke my heart and couldn’t imagine saying no!  As I have sat here in this chair editing all of these images, I can hear Ben talking to Ripley all through the session, just like you would your best friend.  What they have is something really special, and as sad as I am for their time together drawing to a close, I am so very glad that Ben realized, before it was too late, how valuable having images of those you love, truly is.

I think Ripley has a similar smile to Harrison Ford. ;-)

Huntsville & Madison’s Best Newborn Family Photographer – Graves

I absolutely love watching families grow.  I had the sweet opportunity to document the special time before their family changed forever with a family maternity session not long ago.  I was overjoyed when she asked if I would do baby Mark’s newborn photos as well. <3

As I watched their oldest with “baby Mark”, he reminded me so much of my own oldest son, who was SO gentle and loving with our babies as we brought each one of them home.  He would stroke his head, be concerned when he would cry, and did such a great job being careful not to bump him while we were playing on the bed.

These moments and memories are some of the most precious.  As much as I try to shoot for technical “perfection” (or as close as anyone can get with kids that are always on the move), my real goal is to document and preserve those memories of the little things forever.

“Hindsight is 20/20”

Sometimes in the mess and the exhaustion of motherhood, it’s hard to see the moments for what they truly are as they are unfolding.  The stress and pressure of parenthood is a very real thing.  My hope for the families that I document, is that they are able to feel and remember the moments for what they truly were, without the stress and mess to cloud the view.  It’s not about perfection, but instead, documenting the sweetness and simplicity that lasts for such a short time.  I want the images to remind them of the beauty of “right now” every single time they see them.

I know there are wonderful parts about every stage in life, but THIS is one that I don’t ever want to forget, and I want to give that gift to other mamas as well.

Huntsville & Madison’s Best On Location Family Photographer – Parker

Goodness.  I can’t tell you how blessed I have been when God has brought the most wonderful people across my path through photography.

This sweet couple not only has an amazing story about how they met, but they had the same dream for owning land.  They now have a wonderfully large and GORGEOUS piece of property that they plan to raise their children on and protect for generations to come.  Y’all, seriously, the way their eyes lit up as they told me the history of the property, their plans, and dreams of building, I couldn’t help but be overwhelmingly excited for them.  Can you tell that they love animals too?  They are such a big part of their story, and watching them love on their animals, finding so much joy in their presence was so sweet.

As they prepare to take the next step of growing their family through adoption, I was SO happy they asked me to document their life, right now, before it changes.  I can’t  wait to watch their family grow over time!!!

You won’t find a more genuine and beautiful set of humans, and I am so grateful to have met them both. <3

Huntsville & Madison’s Best Photographer – Kimbrell

I had the pleasure of photographing Emily’s senior photos this past year, and was so happy when Mary asked me to do their family photos as well!  I am sure you can see for yourself, but this family is just…  Sweet.  They love laughing and I enjoyed our time together so much!

Huntsville and Madison Alabama Family Photography – Bridges

The amount of joy I get from seeing parents love on their most favorite people is a little over the top. lol.  Seriously though, I get home, off load my memory cards, back up the images, and then proceed to have a permanent grin on my face the whole time I am editing…  I have literally wondered why my face muscles are sore, and then realized that I was editing for longer than normal earlier that day.

This family makes my face hurt.  I can’t even stop smiling as I type this!  This is their land, with their people, on an evening that was so gorgeous it made me sequel as it unfolded.

These moments y’all, they are priceless.  Yes, I was there to document it all, but you know what makes these images so precious?  It’s not the paper they will be printed on, instead it’s that they are now tied to memories of a time that this little boy was still small enough to fit on his mamas lap.  They are valuable because he can sit on his daddy’s shoulders and that the adorable missing front tooth will soon be filled in with a new one.  They are priceless because even though life is exhausting when you have little ones, it is also beautifully simple.

Cling to that simple beauty.  It will disappear before you know it.

Family with older kids in a group hug

Huntsville and Madison Alabama Family Photography – Harrell

This family was amazing.  Seriously.  They suffered through all my bad jokes, (because all of my jokes are aimed at young children and total “eye rollers” for older kids) and attempts to get a genuine smile. lol.

Y’all, I admittedly shoot families with young children a lot more than ones with older kids.  My talking points and jokes are admittedly rusty when I have someone older than 12 in front of my lens, but oh my goodness, they were just SWEET on each other.

Leah, thank you for inviting me in to this time in your life.  Choosing a photographer to document your “right now” when things move so quickly, is an important decision, and I am SO happy that you chose me.  Your family is gorgeous and your love for each other is what makes these images worthy of being a part of your families visual history.

Huntsville and Madison Alabama Family Photography – Langston

Goodness, this session was so much fun!  We had a beautiful session from the start, but we ended our time on the huge swing that we have hung from one of the oak trees on Five Oaks Farm.  Sweet snuggles, playing, squeezing, swinging, jumping, telling secrets and SO MANY GIGGLES!!!  I can’t wait to share more, but for now this will have to do. <3

Huntsville and Madison Alabama Family Photography – Anderson

This was their first photo shoot all together…  It gives me chills to think about what these images reflect.

We had to reschedule, then we changed the location at the last minute…  I always worry about last minute changes, not because it bothers me, but because I worry that it will make my clients feel frazzled.  Whelp, if it did, it didn’t show!  The evening couldn’t have been more beautiful and this sweet family couldn’t have been more perfect.  We romped all over Five Oaks Farm and took full advantage of all of the yummy golden light until it was completely gone. <3  It was an amazing evening, and I absolutely can’t wait to show them their full gallery.  These are just a handful of my favorites from our time together!

I hope you love them…  Because I do. :-)

Huntsville and Madison Alabama Family Photography – Wright

Oh my GOODNESS!!!  It has been crazy around here the past few weeks.  I am happy to report that we are all moved in and have made a good dent in the task of unpacking.

We shot this session in MY NEW STUDIO!!!  I can’t wait to use it more, and I can’t think of a better family to be the first to use space.  Fun (or not so fun) fact…  The electricity in our new home hadn’t been turned on yet, so there wasn’t any AC for this shoot. AHHHH!!!  We had planned this session with a (what I thought at the time) generous buffer to make sure we were done with the house.  Well, one little delay lead to another (as many building projects do) and the bottom line is that babies don’t wait!  I spent the two days before their session setting up the room and we made it work with extension cords and fans to keep it cool(ish). lol.  I can’t express how thankful I am for how they just rolled with it.  I am in love with every single image.

This family have been clients of mine ever since she was pregnant with their oldest.  I can’t express to you how beautiful it has been watching this family grow and seeing this little boy get bigger.  He is such a happy, spunky, joyful kid and is always up for a smile.

Humor me for a minute and lets walk down memory lane…

They have two littles and she is pregnant with their third.  I remember this time of my own life, and it feels like forever ago.  How is it that it feels like days will never end, but then I blink and whole years have gone by?  Being a parent is tough.  Being a military family is tough.  This sweet mama wanted to document her baby’s 18 month birthday and get some family photos before their whole world changes yet again with the birth of their 3rd son.  I always get so sentimental when I think about the changes that happen when a new little soul is added to a family.  There is so much growth and stretching, and all in the most amazing, but sometimes uncomfortable ways.  This little guy gets to be the baby of the family for just a little while longer, and that is absolutely something that should be celebrated and documented. <3

Love tight, hug hard and don’t blink.
