I got to meet so many precious newborns in 2014!  I've been photographing babies for years, but this year I decided to go full force into photographing newborns.  I realized that while there can be some of the most challenging photo shoots, they're also some of the most rewarding types of shoots that I do.  You really have to have a passion for this.  We really enjoyed working in our downtown studio space during 2014, but our lease is up and we have recently moved into a new, very large and modern space in Hoover. Here's to a great 2015 and all the wonderful people we will photograph!

Raelynn came to the studio at only 5 days old!  I was very impressed that her parents were able to make it in that quickly after the birth, but great photography is very important to this family.  They knew that the sooner they came in the better results they were likely have for Raelynn's newborn session.  I was honored that they also hired me to photograph the birth of their precious baby.  Actually, our relationship goes back even further than that; we also photographed their wedding a few years ago. :)  It's so great to get to watch families grow and it's a wonderful feeling to get to capture these unforgettable moments in their lives.

This is an extra special little boy to me because I've been photographing him since he was a newborn.  He is always a pleasure to photograph - so sweet and cooperative and best of all, has that million dollar smile!  I also love that his mom is so creative and always brings along interesting outfits and props for each photo shoot.  The Heart of Dixie Railroad Museum in Calera, AL was the perfect setting for his 4-year photos.  It's one of my all-time favorite places to shoot.  His mom said I may one day be photographing his wedding. Ha!  I don't like to think about how old I will be by that point in time, but who knows...

I look forward to seeing him and the rest of his family soon for family photos!

The Spencers are not only a very photogenic little family, they are also great neighbors and friends!  We are thrilled that they are expecting baby girl #3.  It's always fun photographing them and we were blessed with some beautiful Fall-time weather for this Morris Ave. (downtown Birmingham) shoot.
