the hodges family | orange beach, alabama family photographer

By | Family | No Comments

As I reflect on the Hodges family beach session I can’t help but feel the love of what family is.  These little boys enjoy each other and will go through the journey of life together.  I imagine fort nights, hunting, fishing and plenty of baseball.  Although as moms and dads we sometimes wonder when these littles will be more self sufficient, these times are the ones that are full of memories. Ahh, what a blessing!  Is there any better place to make memories than the coast?

The Hodges are such an easy family to photograph.  This is our second family session together, and they are just a laid back group:)  Our sessions are always filled with great conversation.  There is always such an authenticity in the gallery photographs for the Hodges.  The culling process isn’t hard for this family, as there are so many great images to choose from!  There just isn’t that much direction on my part.

I often enter sessions thinking about what images I’d want in my gallery as a mom, dad or sibling.  It happens to be easier to photograph this age group for me, because I have one of my own.  Posing for this age is quick, and most of these galleries at this age are portraits of the boys playing, laughing and loving.  I always strive to give my clients a gallery that they can reflect on through the years.  And, if I’m lucky the images are chosen down the road for school projects, graduation videos, or even marriage reception slideshows.  I love what I do, and this gallery is a wonderful reflection of the emotional attachment I experience with each of my families.  Enjoy!!

miracle | 5 years old

By | Kiddos | No Comments

Jylah is a perfect miracle!!  She was born at just 23 weeks, weighing only one pound, two ounces and measuring only 11 inches.  Let’s just give that figure some thought.  One pound objects found in our every day world include: a baseball, a can of beans, three medium sized bananas, or a guinea pig.  Guys, we’re talking itsy bitsy!  Jylah not only is a miracle, but she is a warrior!  She fought in the NICU for 96 days before coming home.

She is an active little five year old, just like any other her age.  To me, that speaks volumes of her NICU nurses and doctors in Birmingham.  Her smile will brighten your day, and her hugs are even better!  She is beautiful, as you will see in the highlights from her gallery.  Jylah just celebrated her fifth birthday with a Luau.  Jylah’s parents are active in the community, and volunteer their time on a regular basis.  Her mom is an educator and her father is a correctional officer.  I loved working with her, and I hope that you all enjoy these highlights:)

one | one year ~ marianna, florida child photographer

By | 1st Year, Baby Girl, Kiddos | No Comments

Everly is turning one!  That first year sure does fly by.  The first year is filled with excitement from first words to their first crawl, their first step and finally their first BIRTHDAY,  ahhhh, such sweet moments.  We decided to have a natural wooded session for Everly.  To me there is always a sense of whimsy and magic in the forest that compliments any baby turning one.  When Everly arrived for her morning photo shoot, she had a full little belly and was all smiles.  First we headed out on the golf cart to the perfectly wooded spot. Then, mom dressed Everly in a sweet little denim dress that fit the surroundings perfectly.  Next, we switched into a simple little birthday onesie accessorized by the cutest little lace bloomers.  Everly’s last outfit, rose gold bloomers with pearls, added the icing on the cake!  Outfit changes always add to the diversity of the gallery. This session was a combination of a one year session and a cake smash session.  Everly’s gallery is full of personality, and evokes such a sweet emotion when viewing her images.   Soon, Everly will be heading into her second year of life, but for now I’m sure mom is soaking up every second of  the end of her first year.  I enjoyed our session.  Everly is beautiful!  Enjoy!!!!

the raymond family | blue mountain beach, florida family photographer

By | Family | No Comments

What is family?   According to the Urban Dictionary, family is a bondage that cannot be broken by any means.  I tend to agree, and the Raymond Family is a great example of what family is. This was an extended family session, and it couldn’t have gone any better!  We met at sunset down the street from their vacation home on Blue Mountain Beach, located along 30a.  The Raymond’s were perfectly color coordinated for a sunset session with a palette of blues and a perfect blush for an accent color.  There are very few individual photographs in this session.  I think that speaks of how great of a bond this family shares.  This gallery is one we’d all enjoy having to look back on time and time again.  Enjoy!!

eyrica {chipley h.s.} | chipley fl senior photographer

By | Senior | No Comments

I was so excited to get to switch things up a bit with a senior urban session. Eyrica wanted to walk the streets of her hometown of Chipley, FL. It was so much fun! Downtown Chipley is filled with character. Think old brick buildings, some white washed, some remain old brick. Then there’s the windows, with the perfectly pealing chipped paint adding such great texture to Eyrica’s gallery. The town is charming, and perfect for any senior session.

Eyrica, your beauty shines from the inside out. As a photographer, it was a dream to work with you because you just dove right in and I was able to see your personality glistening through every image. I loved exploring Chipley with you, and telling your story through your photographs. I can’t thank you enough for trusting me with these precious memories. I hope you loved the experience as much as I did. Enjoy!

this is 3 ~ purity of childhood – 30a child photographer

By | Kiddos | No Comments

This little 3 year old was a doll! Girls are so much fun, from the outfits to the expressions to the sweet little smiles, especially at the age of 3.  We shot this sunset session at Grayton Beach, along 30a.  The breeze was blowing, the water was cool, and the golden colors of the sun reflecting on the sand and this little 3 year old were AMAZING!!  Her outfit was beautifully traditional in a pastel blue, with a hint of vintage lace detailing! Her laughter was infectious!  We chased the water as it ran towards the sand, played with a little duck to get those sweet smiling shots, and enjoyed looking for dolphins.  This gallery is a great mixture of naturally posed portraits and lifestyle images sure to make mom smile over and over again. Enjoy!!

a growing family ~ fall maternity session {30a maternity photographer}

By | Maternity | No Comments

This family is growing, and will soon hear the wonderful cries of their little one.  These two make my heart melt, and are truly the definition of happiness. Each photograph is full of emotion.  You can feel the love they have for each other, and know what great parents they are about to become!  We met at my secret little location in The Woodlands, and just enjoyed the peace and quiet of being alone.  The colors that mom chose were beautiful, and full of life.  Enjoy!!

baby arceneaux ~ 6 months old {30a child photographer}

By | 1st Year, Baby Boy, Kiddos | No Comments

Baby Arceneaux is 6 months old!  He is so easy going.  We met at the courthouse in Abbeville at just about sunset.  Baby Arceneaux wanted to pull all of his little tricks out of his hat.  Not to mention on the way to Abbeville, he had just about chewed a hole in the back strap of his sandals.  Little Rascal!  He was just about able to sit unassisted, was just learning how to stick his little tongue out, and his smiles y’all: too cute!!  Lookout, because Baby Arceneaux will be on the move soon, getting into EVERYTHING. Enjoy!!

twins | star wars fans ~ 30a-florida panhandle-wiregrass region child photographer

By | Halloween, Kiddos, Styled Sessions | No Comments

These two taught me all about Star Wars!  We had a great time, and these two kiddos were so at ease with the photo shoot from the very start.  We met in a parking garage so that we would compliment the Star Wars themed shoot.  These are their Halloween costumes, and I just loved the idea of shooting the kiddos doing something they love!  The results are something mom, dad and the kids will treasure for many years to come. I hope these two are as excited as I am about having a gallery filled with fun and excitement. Enjoy!!
