Our next adventure!

We have had so many adventures so far… When we moved to Alabama 7 years ago, never in my wildest dreams did I think I would be a successful photographer, have 5 kids, home school them, be planting a berry patch, or a fruit orchard, have bee hives, chickens AND about to build a farm house on 17 acres of land…

Our family is finally complete, and in less than 2 weeks we will be moving out of the only home 3 of my kids have ever known, and in to an apartment close to my favorite photography location.  Our land.

This video is to help us remember right now, before everything changes. Our dreams are on our doorstep and I can’t wait to document every beautiful detail along the way!

Make sure to SUBSCRIBE to get future updates as our dreams grow even bigger! <3

 

Huntsville & Madison Family Children Newborn Lifestyle Photographer Jenni M Photography – When 3 turns in to 4

How in the world do you slow time down!?!

It seems like just yesterday that I was taking this little boys newborn photos. <3

That was THREE years ago and now this precious boy is going to be a big brother!

The moments leading up to such a profound and beautiful change are so completely precious.  It’s hard to appreciate it sometimes, through the haze of the physical discomfort of pregnancy, but these moments are worth relaxing in to.  Every part of our lives shift when we bring a new little soul in to this world.  Documenting “right now” before everything changes is such a beautiful way to look back and remember how beautiful every single stage of your growing family felt.

Huntsville & Madison Family Children Newborn Lifestyle Photographer Jenni M Photography – 1 Year Little

I met Melody a couple years ago in Hobby Lobby as we waited in the fabric line to get something cut.  I looked down and she had the cutest little girls decked out the most gorgeous clothes!  I asked here where they were from, and she confessed that they were samples that she had made for her boutique children’s clothing label Petticoat Patch.  We talked the whole time we stood in line, exchanged business cards and have been friends ever since! lol

I was so happy when she asked me to take some photos of her with her youngest to commemorate his first birthday.  Happy Birthday sweet boy.

Soooooo many things to say.  Sooooo many photos.  Sooooo much love.

Where do I even start?

I have had these images in my head for SOOOOO long!  FINALLY the stars aligned and I can’t help but be over the moon for how they turned out.  I love newborn and baby photography, but I also freaking love natural environments in the light of sunset.  It’s just magical.  For a year now, I have been dreaming up how I could photograph newborns and babies outside, but I knew I needed to do it in my way.  I knew I needed to fill it with connection, and movement and emotion.  I knew I needed to create something I had never seen before outside of my imagination.

When I was talking to Tori about styling this session, I think it went something like “So I will have a basket for your baby, and have you in a yellow dress with a really full skirt and then I will plop you in the middle of a field with tall grass and wild flowers!”.  Thank goodness she said “Sounds good. I trust you.” Haha!

But seriously.  I don’t know how I could love these any more…  So I beg you.  If you have a baby (Newborn all the way up to “not quite sitting up yet” age) and you want images like these, CALL ME!!!  Lets make some magic in the golden light of sunset. <3

Huntsville & Madison Family Children Newborn Lifestyle Photographer Jenni M Photography – Kai

Why is it that mamas anticipate and mourn a baby’s first birthday?  Why do we constantly weigh the excitement of what is to come (independence, growth, talking, walking, learning) against what will be lost. (snuggles, dependence, contentment, peek-a-boo, baby curls, teething)

Well, maybe you don’t, but I do…  My own little one is 10 months old right now and I am trying to soak up every single second.  It seems like when they turn 1, they are all of the sudden, on the go, and my baby, the one that has looked at me like I am the center of their universe, slips away just a little more every day.  That baby is replaced with a toddler, full of wonder, excitement, independence and an insatiable desire to learn.

BUT

I LOVE BABIES!  I have ALWAYS loved babies…  Why do they have to grow up so FAST?!?!  I am so incredibly excited for this next season of life that is about to be upon us.  It will be the first time in over 10 years that I will have a bit more freedom to travel (without the kids), but this “baby season” has gone by in a blink, and I am sad.  You would think that after 5 kids I would have gotten my fill. lol

 

My first year sessions are all about celebrating those milestones.  Exploring, standing, spunk and following what they are interested in.  This little guy was absolutely precious.  If I could end all of my sessions in the water, I would.  He had a blast and didn’t want to leave. <3

Happy birthday buddy.  Just know that you are probably breaking your mamas heart just a little bit every day just because you are one day older. <3

Huntsville & Madison Family Children Newborn Maternity Photographer Jenni M Photography – Sange & Madhu

Any time someone contacts me asking about documenting their newborn, I typically ask if they had considered a maternity session as well.  Some say no, and I don’t push at all, but some say yes.  I ask for 2 reasons.  First, is that I offer a discount when a maternity session is purchased along side of a newborn session.  They go hand in hand in my mind, and I want to offer an incentive to those who are want to document their moments with me.  The second reason is much more sentimental.

This time, right before the birth of a new little life, is so precious.  It doesn’t matter if you are welcoming your 1st babe or your 5th.  Once that little soul is born, your world is changed forever.  Even though it is the best kind of change, (the kind that forces you to grow, to love and to stretch in sometimes uncomfortable ways) having a child changes you on the inside just as much as it changes everything on the outside.

So I ask…  “Would you like to add on a discounted maternity session?”, not because I am just trying to “up-sell”, but because this BEAUTIFUL reality that you know right now will be no more so very very soon.  With all of the anticipation, soreness of pregnancy and waiting, it is over in a blink.  This quiet time prepares us for all that is to come.

It is worth documenting.

It is worth remembering.

It is beautiful.

This family…  Let me just walk down memory lane with you for a minute. <3

I met them on a very chilly morning in November of 2015.

They then decided to come back to me in 2016 and we were blessed with storm clouds.  It was gorgeous. <3

and now this…  I am pretty sure they have some special potion that makes all of their sessions perfection.  Who knows.  It may be the same magic that gave Lilly her perfect dimples and bright eyes.  I don’t know, but I do know I love this family, and have had the privilege of seeing them 3 years in a row now.  They have already booked their session for next year, and I can’t wait to see what the future brings. <3

Huntsville & Madison Family Children Lifestyle Wedding Photographer Jenni M Photography – Kern

When Stephanie contacted me, I honestly almost referred her to a different photographer.

You see, I had a baby only 3 months before her wedding date, and I had told my husband that I wasn’t going to take on any weddings for a year!

I am so glad I changed my mind. <3

There was so much “depth” and history between these two families.  To see the joy and comfort that they give, not only to each other, but also to the others family, was a beautiful thing to see.  Friends that had walked through the tough times together gathered around in celebration, of 2 hearts that have finally found the one that makes them complete.

These two love the Harry Potter books.  There were subtle touches of it’s inspiration all through the details of their wedding.  As I scouted out the venue, I saw this incredible tree.  I knew I needed to create something special for them with it.

Some people might want doves on their wedding day.  Others might just prefer white speckled owls. <3

Huntsville & Madison Couples Lifestyle Photographer Jenni M Photography – Key

Ok, so funny story,

I send out a questionnaire to all of my clients before their session.  It’s a way for me to find out what you really want out of your session, the colors, the environment you are envisioning, unique family dynamics and I also ask for a little “insider info” if you have kids so I can connect with them a little faster and make them feel comfortable.

So I got the questionnaire back around 3 weeks before their session, and was “skimming” through…

  • Bringing their 2 dogs – Check!
  • Dogs are huge – Check!
  • Lists all of their names – Check! (I am HORRIBLE with names.  More on that in a sec)
  • Chewy has 23 thousand followers on Instagram – WOW! Check!
  • “Can we use some of the photos on his IG account?” – Of course! Check!

I reply and say everything looks great and of course they can use images on Instagram!

Fast forward to the day of their session…  I am actually READING their questionnaire again (Trying to commit their names to memory because I suck at remembering names.  Shoot!  I can’t remember my own kids names half the time!) and realize that it isn’t her husband that has 23k followers on IG but their 150# Newfoundland dog Chewy’s account! HA!

So long story short.  I suck at names.  I try, but it really is not my strength, and I am sorry, but at this point it probably will get worse not better. lol

So this is me, introducing Chewy, the 3 year old 150# Newfoundland Puppy, with over THIRTY TIMES as many followers than I do! lol <3
