Diane & Alex | Engagement Portraits | Dauphin Island, AL

Dauphin Island Engagement Session

Diane and Alex are one of the most laid back, fun couple I have ever worked with. I took their engagement portraits on a cold January  afternoon on the beach that will be the backdrop to their wedding. Dauphin Island is a gorgeous island at the southern tip of Mobile, AL. One of the best perks of being a photographer is getting to sometimes work on the beach!

I love it when couples can make each other laugh and show their love and emotion for each other without much direction. Diane and Alex were one of those couples. His sense of humor even had me laughing with them. We even talked her into getting her feet wet in the freezing cold water!! 

I, like them, can not wait until their wedding day! I love being a part of a couple’s big day and providing them with images that will last a lifetime and beyond. I know it’s going to be a great day, with hopefully one of those gorgeous Alabama sunsets.  

Ashlee & Hunter | Family Portraits | Mobile, AL

Family Portraits in Mobile, Alabama

Ashlee knew exactly where she wanted to take family photos with Hunter. She had seen the Bell family sharing photos of this beautiful location with a field, gravel driveway and gorgeous golden hour sunsets. That location was perfect and is also the Bell family’s front yard! 

Ashlee and Hunter were so photogenic and easy to capture. The games I had for him to play with Ashlee made for great non posed shots and shows just how much they love each other!  

Thank you so much to Ashlee and Hunter for givin me the opportunity to capture your family photos and to the Bell family for letting me borrow your beautiful land once again.  

 

Mecom | Family Portraits in Mobile, AL

Family portrait photography in Mobile, Alabama

Bobbie Jo posted a message to the wall of my VIP Facebook group asking for availability and as we discussed details I was excited to shoot this session.  

We decided to shoot their session at the boat launch in Bayou La Batre. With the weather we have been having lately I knew a beautiful sunset was likely not going to happen. With Christmas photos fog, for me, is perfect for this time of year. That’s the whole reason Roudolf was able to get a job flying Santa’s sleight right?

🎶 Then one foggy Christmas Eve... 🎶  

The Shrimp boats passed by before and after the session as they were coming in with shrimp for many Bayou La Batre residents Christmas feast. I love shooting sessions in my hometown and I take it all in every time I get a chance to.  

Thank you to Bobbie Jo, Michael, and their children for a great session and the opportunity to photograph your family. 

 

 

Schambeau Family | Christmas Portraits

Schambeau Family Christmas Portraits in  Mobile, AL

Janice had knew she wanted this session all year long and booked it when she had her Christmas session last year. She wanted family portraits with all of her family and grand babies. 

We all met at Jonathan’s house and took their photos in the field in front of the house. I loved interacting and playing with the kids while we took their photos but mostly I loved watching David, Janice’s husband, running around and playing with his grand babies. I love my grandparents and have memories similar to this of my grandparents. I think the kids will remember this session for years to come and tell about how their grandfather was chasing them and trying to catch them.   

I always love meeting with Janice and David and look forward to the yearly photo sessions. Thank you so much for give me the opportunity to photograph you and your family! I love doing it and creating photos just for you. 

April & Cody | Fall Portrait Session

Fall Portrait Family Session in Mobile, AL

A family photo session in the a front yard of a house? It doesn’t sound very glamorous does it? Oh my gosh this land hasn’t let me down yet! My cousin has the most amazing land with the sun peeking through and the best angle for golden hour lighting. I haven’t had anlocation yet in the Mobile county area disappoint me. We live in such a beautiful location!

April, Cody, and the girls were a delight to work with as always. I always know that natural smiles and fun will be had when April calls me for a session. The girls are the absolute sweetest! You can see in the photos just how much the girls care for each other and the love that April and Cody share. 

Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to capture memories for your family year after year. It is definitely a joy to watch your family grow and see the personalities of the children grow as well from year to year.  

Hendricks Family | Fall Family Photography

Family Photography in Mobile, Alabama

When Jessica messaged me asking if we could take family photos behind a fruit stand, I admit I was a little nervous of how the photos would look. I always want to make sure that everyone’s photos look amazing and I couldn’t picture the set up, misty because I had never been in that specific location. Oh my gosh! I am so glad I trusted Jessica’s judgement. 

The Hendricks family is such a beautiful family. The truck was in the family and they really wanted to incorporate it into a photo session. The metal of the shed in the back works perfectly with the blue of the truck and I am absolutely in love with it!  

 

 

Lundy Family | Couple Photography

Couple Photography in Mobile, Alabama

Brooke and Perry were one of the sweetest couples that I have photographed. They were always smiling and natural laughter during a session is always the best kind. 

Brooke won a couples session last year during a Facebook contest and we decided to do their pictures the following year. Their session took place at Chickasabouge Park in Mobile, Alabama. There are gorgeous bike paths through the woods, disc golf, playgrounds, basketball courts and soccer fields, a small beach and boat launch for Chickasaw Creek. It’s a beautiful place and I truly enjoy having it as a backdrop to my photos. 

Thank you to Brooke and Perry for an amazing session. You are a beautiful couple and fun to work with!

 Meet Matt, Jessica, & Kaitlynn. You’ve seen them before of course, I shoot their family photos every fall. Jessica is my sister and Kaitlynn is my niece. Kaitlynn is often the star of my model sessions when I get the urge to be creative and do something different.

Maverick | One Year Milestone | Mobile, AL

Maverick Smash Cake Session Mobile, AL

Maverick, I knew you existed before your daddy did. I got to see and photograph his first moments when he knew he was going to be a Dad. I was there when Mom and Dad found out you were going to be a little boy. Your daddy ran around the yard in excitement. Your Mom’s maternity photos are still some of my favorite. She was stunning in her maternity gown surrounded by water and trees. Your mom celebrated her 30th birthday this year and we had a cake smash session for her as well. You got to watch as we took her photos and you definitely took notes because you rocked your own cake smash. We took your photos at Cottage Hill Park in Mobile, AL. Your birthday theme was Where the Wild Things Are and you dressed up in a costume as Max. Your birthday and cake smash shoot was one of the cutest I have shot. Looking back over the past year and 9 months it sure flew by quickly! I can’t wait to see you as your grow, develop your own personality and start talking non stop! Happy Birthday Maverick! I hope you had an amazing time at your birthday party and an even more amazing birthday. 🎉 

Miniard Family | Fall Photos | Mobile, AL

Fall Family Photos

I recently had my fall sessions in what felt like a summer heat wave in Mobile, Alabama. We don’t get much of a fall here and our greens die off fairly quickly with the season changing.  

The Miniard Family had their session at the Japanese Gardens in Mobile, Alabama across from Langan Municipal Park. We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful afternoon! 

I had recently shot Emmi’s fresh 48. She’s a beautiful baby girl and has an amazing set of parents. 

I loved working with this family! They look great together and baby girl is precious. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to photograph your family and I look forward to watching Emmi grow!  

Hope & Clay | Couple Portrait Photography | Mobile, AL

These two are the cutest together! I love taking couple’s photos and seeing their interactions with each other with the different prompts given. 

Being a photographer in Mobile, Alabama means there is a vast variety of amazing locations to shoot, but nothing beats an empty field where the focus is all on the couple and their love for each other.  

Thank you so much to Hope and Clay for allowing me to take your fall photos! It was great meeting you and your session was so much fun! 

Graham Family | Fall Photos | Mobile, AL

The Graham family is the absolute sweetest! For the past few year they have chose me to be their Mobile, AL fall family portrait photographer.  

I have enjoyed watching this family grow from when Jenson was a few months old to the addition of his littler sister. You can see the love that this family has for each other

Thank you to Haley and Jonathan for choosing me to be your photographer for fall photos. You have the sweetest kids and it’s always a joy to spend time with you and your family!  

Savannah | Senior Portraits | Mobile, AL

One of the best parts of being a Senior Portrait Photographer in Mobile, Alabama is getting to use the beautiful and historic city streets as my backdrop. 

Savannah is a beautiful girl and I loved the photos that we created during her session. She was so excited about having her portraits taken and she rocked her session! 

Thank you so much for choosing me to be your photographer. It was so much fun during your session and our meetings.  

 

Dawson | Senior Portraits | Downtown Mobile, AL

I’m so grateful that Jan and Dawson chose me as their Mobile, AL Senior Portrait Photographer. 

I met Dawson on a trip I took with the Dixon Elementary Archery team to Orlando, FL for their world tournament. His sister was an archer on the team and helped the team place 3rd in the world.

Dawson doesn’t like having his photos taken and wasn’t looking forward to our session. I made sure to make it as fun for him as I could. He is a handsome guy and could definitely be a model, if he only loved being behind the camera.  

We took his photos in Downtown Mobile, AL. Downtown Mobile is one of my favorite places to shoot. There is always a mixture of colors and textures and no picture is ever the same. 

Thank you so much to Dawson and his mom, Jan, for choosing me to capture his senior portraits. It has been a great experience getting to know both of you, even if we had to pull his leg a little to get him to take a few photos. 😊
