Sierra | Beach Portrait Session | Mobile, AL

Is there anything better than having your toes in the sand, salt air in your lung, and the warmth of the summer sun on your skin? No? I didn’t think so. There is just something about the beach that is so relaxing and inspiring. I love to do sessions on the beach, Dauphin Island in particular. 

Sierra is such a beautiful girl! We did a session together at the same time I did one for little brother Baylor. She is so photogenic and has one of the best personalities!  

Kaitlynn | Styled Portrait Session | Mobile, Alabama

Styled Portrait Session in Downtown Mobile, Alabama

I have always loved the way a city street looks behind a subject. A photo can be taken at the exact same spot at different times of the day and look completely different each time. The colors from the traffic lights, fire hydrants, street signs, and businesses provide pops of color that highlight the subjects.

I have been planning this session for weeks and had a shot list and outfit planned for Kaitlynn since I decided she was the one for the session. I knew I wanted an edgy look to complement the shadows and colors of the city streets. I decided on a black jacket and black hat (it was a little chilly that day) to show off her gorgeous eyes that we added a little black eye liner to.


Kaitlynn (12) recently joined Loped as a model and participated in her first runway event 2 weeks ago. Aside from modeling, Kaitlynn also is an archer who with her team last year finished 2nd in the world among elementary schools. I can't wait to plan my next session with her between her personality and beauty she makes being a photographer easy!
