Enjoy Girls {Montgomery, AL Children's Photography}

Recently three of the prettiest girls I've ever had the pleasure of photographing walked into my studio. Okay, one of them "bounced" in :) Guess which one after you look through the preview. :)

Sorry, mom. I just had to post this one! It makes me smile.

And this one really shouldn't be in the "children's" category anymore ... as much as I'm sure mom and dad would like for her to be. I was so glad mom brought her along. We tend to photograph our children frequently when they're little, then let those teen years slip by us. We really shouldn't. I'm so happy mom and dad will have these to remember this time in her life.

I just love what we were able to capture for sweet mom and am so excited to blog this preview of her online gallery - which is uploading now.

Enjoy Sunset {Montgomery, AL Portrait Photography}

There's a beautiful little field near my house that is just perfect for sunset photographs. The problem is the mowers usually show up right when it's at its prime. I was able to take one of the granddaughters out there last night and here are a few of the images.

I loved the results so much I decided to offer some sunset mini-sessions until it dries up or is cut down. I can just picture an engaged couple here as well as a little boy in a cowboy hat. And, as shown, it's just perfect for little girls. I even think a maternity session would be beautiful. So here are the details:

20-30 minute session beginning promptly at 6:45 (if you're late you'll miss it)
6 edited images in an online gallery
prints may be ordered a la carte through the online gallery with 2-for-1 (2 prints of same image) for 30 days after the gallery is released
$50 plus tax ($55) payable on the day of the session

Lighting will only allow for one session per evening and no wardrobe changes.
I will have to confirm the session the day it is scheduled as I have no control over when the mowers will show up and it will be gone. Wear bug spray :)

Email if interested in reserving a day.

Enjoy 21st Birthdays {Montgomery, AL Event Photography}

It's not everyday one can celebrate his 21st birthday. So Evan G. Cooper decided to do it in style.

All the details were planned and lovingly executed.

Friends and family came with love and laughter.

I'm leaving most of the images for Evan to share. I just blogged a few so he would be assured they are on the way...


... to warn the world that Evan G. Cooper is now 21 and officially armed with a CSI badge!

"Grissom would be proud."

Chelsea ♥ Joshua {Montgomery, Al Engagement Session}

There is a little disagreement on the details of the proposal ... like who actually had tears in his/her eyes, etc. ... but there's no disagreement on the place...

Joshua proposed to Chelsea at the beautiful Overlook Park in downtown Montgomery. So that's where we met for the engagement session.

I'm really looking forward to photographing their wedding in 2012.

It will be here before you know it!

Chelsea and Josh, your full gallery of images will be released to you shortly. Please enjoy this little preview with your family and friends.

Enjoy Sara {Newborn Photography Montgomery, AL}

Sara was born today at 7:32 A.M. She weighed in at a petite 6 lbs. 8 oz. and 20in. After announcing her appearance with gusto she has been a calm, sweet girl all day.

Big Brother Elijah came to the hospital to visit. Mom & Dad have been using a doll at home to teach Elijah how to be a good big brother, so when asked where Baby Sara was he replied, "At home." I said, "No, Baby Sara is over there." Elijah insisted, "Baby Sara is at home." Then we pointed to Mimi holding Baby Sara and a stunned Elijah met his little sister for the first time. And you just can't plan for a reaction like this!! Please enjoy this serendipitous moment.

Jordy ♥ Ben {Montgomery, AL Engagement Portraits}

I can really tell a lot about a guy from the engagement session. And I can tell you, Ben is a keeper. He endured insane heat & humidity, and enjoyed lots of interaction with the Jordy's extended family during his e-session.

Of course, he's very blessed to have been accepted into such a loving family. Not only is his bride-to-be beautiful but very talented.

I'm so honored to be included in this special time in their lives.

The family land provided lots of beautiful places for backdrops, but this one had to be my favorite set of the day. The quilt was made by Jordy's great-grandmother.

And this is their first "official" family portrait.

Jordy and Ben, your full gallery of images is uploading now and should be available to view later today. However, I couldn't wait to share a few with your family & friends. Enjoy!

Enjoy Downtown {Montgomery, AL Photographer}

I was downtown one evening this week waiting for a very special appointment. Not being one to sit and wait, I grabbed my camera and started looking at the little details we sometimes miss. I love looking for reflections, so grabbed a few of those.

Then I started thinking of different ways to capture the much-photographed fountain. I don't know if I stretched my imagination enough, but this was my favorite.

I also focused on these two details that I have loved - but not photographed - since I first started thinking about opening a studio downtown.

Here's a little teaser about the reason for the evening appointment downtown. Maybe more details will follow soon. ... but maybe not. We'll see :)
