He found a favorite toy at the studio (an old-school toy phone) and wanted me to "answer" the phone the whole time. Haha! He was too cute!

I'm glad to now be adding high school senior portraits back to the list of services I offer. I was so glad Jace's mom had me capture these photos for him to kick off his big senior year. Can you say future model material? I hope he has the best year ever and many blessings in his life!

It's always nice to capture a few awake shots as well as the sleepy ones. A lot of parents seem to gravitate towards the awake shots.

Their smiles and laughter are always so genuine and the love they have for one another comes across in every photo session I've done for them. They make my job so much fun and I get so excited about photo sessions like this one!

I always love working with this family.
Originally she wanted to do the photo session in a rustic field with tall grass, but at the last minute she said she liked the creek look, and I just so happened to know of the perfect spot! The sunlight just before sunset was so magical coming in through the tress and dancing on the water. I love that with my job I'm always getting to do something new and creative such as scouting for new, magical locations for photo sessions.

Less than 2 years ago I did his big sister's newborn session and she was just as cute and chunky. I was so glad to get to do his newborn session too!

It was so great getting to see Campbell and her family again and to see how much she's grown in the past 7 months! I always count it as an honor to capture these moments and I don't take it lightly that families entrust me with their memories. I've featured a few highlights from both her newborn session and her 7-month session since I wasn't able to post any of her newborn photos until her adoption was complete. I can only imagine what it must feel like to wait for so long to have your child in your arms and to finally get the call out of the blue that has has just been born. I asked her mom to share a little about how their experience and the emotions that came with it.

"We received the call on a Sunday to go to hospital to get our baby. She was 5 days old and we were so excited. I literally felt as if I were floating as the nurse handed her to us. The minute our eyes met was indescribable and something rushed through my body I’ve never felt before. It was instant love & our hearts were immediately complete. God blessed us with the most precious baby and we get to watch her grow everyday as we begin this beautiful journey as a family of three."

I absolutely love how Clara's newborn session turned out! She was just a wee 5 days old at her session. She and her family were so nice to work with. It took a little while (ok, a few hours) to get big brother on board, but I was determined to get that sibling shot! Toddlers can be tricky sometimes. When Clara's mom first contacted me about doing her newborn session I was so pumped. I knew who she was right away because I've been a fan of her music and her violin skills for years. (Check out her amazing work at nordikfire.com.) One creative person working for another can sometimes be a little nerve-racking because you don't know what kind of expectations they might have. But they just let me do my thing and they were thrilled with the results. I work so hard doing what I do and I pour my heart and soul into it so it means the world to me when clients love their photos and are appreciative for everything that goes into it. I'm grateful I got to meet this family and capture these memories for them.

Olivia Claire was one of the sweetest babies I've worked with and her newborn session is definitely one of my recent favorites. She was about 3 weeks old at her session, but she still slept like a champ. She is such a doll! Her mom requested plenty of pink and that was no problem at all. You can't go wrong with pink for a little girl. I love how her session has that rustic vibe but also has plenty of clean, simple shots as well. I love to style every session but I also want my photos to also be timeless.

She's like a living baby doll. Stella, you are so precious. You made me work hard for these smiles, but it was so worth it!
6-months is such a great milestone and one of my favorite ages to capture. At 6-months, babies are just learning how to sit up but still do well lying on their tummies and will usually lie on their back and play with their feet (all super cute poses). Don't skip over this important milestone! If you don't have the perfect outfits for your baby's milestone session, don't worry! We have lots of cute outfits for baby boys and girls. See our website for sample photos. All of the outfits used in this session are provided by our studio.

It was so great meeting baby Taylor and her family! They were so nice and easy-going. Big brother was very cooperative and you can tell he's smitten with his brand new baby sister. Taylor's mommy really loves the rustic look (as much as I do!) so I tried to incorporate plenty of that type of look into her session. I love that she brought Taylor's grandmother's christening gown to use in the session. Such a special and sentimental touch. Can't wait to see this family again in a few months!

It took her a little while to get in the groove (as it does with a lot of babies) but once she did, I was able to get a lot of great poses of her. Many people don't understand why a newborn session takes so long (usually 2-3 hours) but usually there are several breaks taken for feedings, changes, and soothing the baby back into a deep sleep. It takes a lot of patience to do this kind of work but it's oh so worth it! Here is a clip of her adorable 5x7 brag book:

We were blessed with great weather and the perfect grassy, rustic location (my fav!). As with all my clients, I strived to give them lots of variety in their session and they ended up with a ton of photos (you can never have too many!) It's amazing how many special moments you can capture in a 1-hour photo session. This mom described these photos as a "treasure" and I hope that's just what they'll do. I hope they'll treasure these for a lifetime.

I've been wanting to do an outdoor newborn shot for a while (which can be a little trickier than it might seem, especially with this unpredictable Alabama weather and the unpredictability of newborns in general) and he just breezed right through the whole thing. I was so excited to get so many great poses of him. He's the fourth child in his family, but the first boy, and I know his parents and sisters are over the moon to add a precious baby boy to their family. Welcome to the world, John Elliot!

Addy and her big sister are always so fun to work with and so cooperative!  Addy was in such a happy mood for her session.  As a photographer, you can't ask for anything better than that.  Towards the end of the session, she did get a little fussy and decided it was nap time.  We thought it would be cute to get a few shots of her sleeping in one of the cribs in the studio.  As soon as he mom got her to sleep and gently laid her down, she woke up and started giggling.  It was so funny.  Happy half birthday, sweet Addy!

Mr. Collier could't be more precious!  His mom told me that he has a woodland-themed nursery (greens, brown, tans and woodland animals) so I tried to choose colors, props and accessories that would go along with that theme, but in a subtle way.  I'm always happy to accommodate special requests such as that.  It can be helpful and fun to have a general idea to bounce of of when setting up for a newborn session.  Big sister was determined that she WAS NOT going to smile and held out for as long as possible, but thank goodness her funny uncle was there to make her crack a smile. :)  Welcome to the world, baby Collier!

I recently got inspired to do a series of portraits with a fine art/vintage-inspired style. Good thing I have my darling daughter to model for me. ;) She's at a really fun age to photograph. I've always been intrigued by anything old or antique and I wanted to create something that really had that vibe to it. I put a lot into this session. I even hand-painted the canvas backdrop myself, something I never done before. A fellow photographer/artist saw one of the photos posted online and sent me a version of the photo where he added a tintype overlay to the photo. I feel like I could easily be looking at a photo created 100+ years ago! I was pleasantly surprised when he sent the new version to me. I had the last photo printed on metal so it looks like a real tintype photo. I love that with photography in this day and age, the possibilities are literally endless.

People who know me know that my other huge passion outside of photography is music. I'm almost always listening to music as I'm editing photos.  One of my favorite composers is Ludovico Einaudi. For some reason, I associate this particular shoot with one of my favorite songs by him. To listen to the song, click here.

The digital world is great, but there is nothing like having something tangible in your hands to treasure and pass down. Here is one of the many options we offer for albums. This is a matted album with velvety deep matte photos. Simple, classic and timeless.

It's hard to believe that it's been almost 4 years since I did her big brother's newborn session. That was the year (2014) that I decided to dive head first into newborn photography and specialize in it. I still have a canvas of one of his newborn photos hanging in the studio. He made sure to tell me to be gentle with the baby. It sounds like he's heard that a time or two! I'm so excited about how this session turned out and I'm happy to be able to create these memories for this special family.

Here is a sample flush-mount album from Olivia's newborn session.

I don't think I've ever met a cuter little chunky monkey than Lexi!  When her mom contacted me to schedule her 6-month session, she said she wanted to do a fruit milk bath session. I've done something similar with flowers, but not with fruit.  Fruit/milk baths are very popular right now in the photography world, but she wanted to do a fruit that hadn't been done a lot.  I thought doing a watermelon fruit bath outdoors was such a cute and unique idea.  It's always fun to try something different.  You never know how a 6-month baby is going to react to this type of thing, so I was glad that even though she couldn't sit up well (the tub was too slippery with all that milk!) she seemed content to just lounge back in the tub of milk.  Nothing says "summer" like enjoying a slice of watermelon.  Happy half-birthday, Lexi!

I so enjoyed this photo session! I couldn't have asked for a sweeter family to work with. You can tell the older kids really love their baby cousin. The weather has been so rainy and unpredictable but we were blessed with no rain the morning of the session, so we were able to do several shots outside. Luckily, we have a small patch of grass and a few trees to work with outside the studio. I love the fun, candid moments that can so easily happen during a photo session, especially outdoors. I know the large canvas collage of the 3 children is going to look amazing on their Granna's wall.

These are my own little darlings. They really have a special relationship (when they're not aggravating each other!) and I think that comes across in these photos. It's usually difficult just to get 1 or 2 shots of them both cooperating at the same time, but they've finally reached the age of photo cooperation. I'm in love with this session of them. <3

It was pretty special because we also did his big sister's newborn session. She looked so much like him at this age! Blessings this this wonderful little family.

This is one of the sessions I've been wanting to blog for a while.  It's one of my favorite recent sessions.  Aldridge Gardens in Hoover, AL was the perfect setting for Elizabeth's 2-year-old session.  It's been a year since I last photographed Elizabeth and she has really grown up a lot!  She's so smart and a really big talker.  I have to say she was one of the most cooperative toddlers I've ever photographed.  Happy 2nd birthday, Elizabeth!

She has such a sweet family. I had the pleasure of doing her parents maternity session just a few short weeks before the baby came. Welcome to the world, Adele!

Little Mila is getting so big and has changed so much since her newborn session!  She seriously couldn't be any cuter. This couple is special to me because I had the pleasure of photographing their wedding years ago. They don't look like they've aged a day since their wedding day. The location they chose for this session (a certain part of the Birmingham Botanical Gardens) is very special to them because that was where they got engaged. How sweet to have family photos taken in the very same spot!

My favorite shots are the natural, improptu shots of the girls running around having fun and shots of the family interacting together naturally. There were plenty of those types of shots and I had a very hard time narrowing it down to just a few to share.  One of my favorite shots is this last picture after we got done with the family shots, Peyton ran up to me, clearly trying to "steal the show" with that beautiful smile of hers. I also love the shots of dad picking tiny yellow flowers with little Amelia. I love getting to create priceless memories for families and it's great to receive feedback like I received from this client: "I absolutely adore the pictures! You captured my little family perfectly."

I thought it was so cute the intent look she would get on her face looking at her dad when he started singing "Nothing on You" by Bruno Mars.  If you don't know the lyrics, look them up. :)  Christian made the cutest Easter bunny I've ever seen!  Can't wait for her 1-year session.

2014 Newborns - Hoover, Birmingham, AL Newborn Photographer https://www.appearphoto.com/blog/2015/1/2014-newborns---hoover-birmingham-al-newborn-photographer Hoover, Birmingham, AL newborn baby photographer, newborn baby poses and props, chin in hands pose, froggy pose

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!
