I'm sorry that I have really been neglecting my blog! I took Grace's 4 year pictures last week. She is my daughter's best friend and such a sweet little girl.


Jessica's bridals

We did Jessica's bridals all the way back in September. At that time, her June wedding seemed like a long time away! But time passes quicker and quicker these days, and she and Josh had a lovely wedding on the 4th. I'll be posting those pictures soon. She was a beautiful, beautiful bride!


a wall display and a contest

i'm always looking for new ways to display pictures, and i found these cool frames at pier one on sale for 20% off a few weeks ago (which made them only $22 each). if you can't tell, there are wires with little clothes pins, so i can change out pictures when i want a quick update. i thought 3 in a row would fill up this space above our bed - i've been looking for something to hang there since we moved in 4 years ago!

also, i'm having a contest on facebook in honor of mothers day. go HERE and nominate one deserving mom or grandmom to win a free session (session will be in auburn/opelika). just leave a comment on that picture, then email me to let me know who you want to nominate. i'll draw a winner on april 30th. every woman deserves pictures of her with her babies!


josh & anna

this family has so much love for each other, it was just nice to be around them! i especially loved watching josh and anna interact; they were so sweet with each other. josh just turned 8, and he was keeping us all laughing. i have two girls, but he makes me want to have a boy! and anna, with her missing teeth, could not possibly be any cuter.


pricing info

updated prices for 2011 are now on my website HERE.



i looove "baby allison," as my daughter calls her. she is such a fun, happy baby, and has the prettiest blue eyes and red hair. and though we got lots of pictures of her smiling, i think i like the one where she looks a little serious the best. i have to admit that i really love those natural baby faces.

she had the prettiest cake at her poodle-themed first birthday party and we saved the top to use for these pictures.


hello internets!

Yes, I do remember that I have this blog! Thanks to everyone for being patient with me. We've had an eventful few months around here. I've still been keeping my camera busy, though, with our new baby girl Libby. Here's a recent pic of her:

and my sweet girls together
I am ready to come out of hibernation now! I am itching for blue skies, sunshine, and flowers. If you want to book a spring or summer session, contact me now. My session fee is $100, and print prices have changed so contact me if you want the info on all that. I hope to get a price list added to my website sometime soon for your convenience.

I also wanted to let y'all know about a new product I'm going to start offering. I ordered these for our living room of the girls and love how they turned out. They're 16x20, but I probably could have gone up one size. (speaking of, HERE is a really helpful blog post by a photographer that I like about how to decide on print sizes. I can't tell you how many times I've wished I'd gone bigger!) These are prints on a standout mount, and I got a linen overlay on mine (which you can kinda see in the last picture). I love them because you don't have to worry about a frame, just hang 'em right on the wall. And I think they look better than canvasses because they're not flimsy at all, it's almost like a print on wood. They look great, see what you think:

Let me know if you'd like to order one of these from a past session. They'd be great for a bridal /  engagement / wedding picture.

Also! Two years ago this March I decided to try out this photography thing. Thank you to everyone who has let me into their lives with my camera. It has been such a privilege, and I hope to continue learning and improving and meeting new people. Please become a fan of my photography page on Facebook and watch for giveaways this month. The first one was for 25 free birth announcements. Book a newborn session this month for anytime this year and get the free birth announcements!

It's good to be back on the blog! Thanks for checking in and come back soon. ;)
