While I was in Birmingham this past weekend, I was asked by my friend and fellow photographer Becky of Abernathy Photographics, to photograph her beautiful family. Becky and I both went to Lee University, majored in different things, and started our businesses around the same time. A mutual friend connected us, gave us each other’s e-mail addresses, and we have been in touch since. I have always admired her work and am truly inspired by her. She is my go-to person when I have questions and I often have a lot of them! If you are ever in the Birmingham, AL area, give Becky a call! Here are a few of my favorites from our session…
I flew home the last weekend in January to capture and document the wedding of Justin Simpson and Julie Mallery. I had to hold back tears sometimes as I watched their celebration behind my lens. They are perfect for each other and it was wonderful getting to know these two.
While I was out in Fort Leonard Wood, MO, I met a few girls that I will remember forever. We met at the gym and quickly became friends. Two of us were from NC, one from Georgia, Australia, Germany, etc. It was so wonderful meeting military wives, hearing their stories, and finding a network that I will always have. I have felt so alone transitioning to civilan wife to military wife. Even though my husband is now in the Army Reserves, if he were ever to get deployed or go away for more long term training, I now have some wonderful girls to confide in, who have been there. I also had the wonderful opportunity to photograph my friend Cass, her husband Capt. Jim Walker, and their “kids” Winnie and Chief. Thank you Walker family for allowing me to capture your family.
I was going through some baby images and came across these to put on my new blog. I love the way Jansen looks in his daddy’s hands. It is so amazing to me that we were all that small !
This is an image of a bridal shoot I did for one of my best friends Christy. I have known Christy for a few years now, seen her go through relationship ups and downs, and am so happy to know she has found someone to spend her life with. I get to see her walk down the asile on February 28th…so stay tuned for her bridal portraits coming soon!
