Mansell Family - Mooresville Alabama - Huntsville Family Photographer - 147

Mansell Family | Mooresville Alabama | Huntsville Family Photographer

Are y’all surprised to see another (family) session in Mooresville, Alabama? No? Do you blame me?  Haha!  This little town is worth every bit of the 15-minute drive from Huntsville in my opinion. These sweet people might look familiar.  I’ve been photographing the Mansell family since Carson was a newborn!  Back then Brody, the oldest, was barely talking and shy.  Now-a-days Brody is full of personality & smiles, and Carson is running right behind him & catching up quickly. We […]

Phillips Family - Boys First Birthday - Huntsville Family Photographer - Mooresville - All boys - Family of Five - 1

Phillips Family | Mooresville Alabama | Huntsville Family Photographer

Hi friends!  Today on the blog is the cutest family of five – The Phillips!  I’ve had the pleasure of photographing this family (and her sister’s) for a couple of years now.  It amazes me how much the boys have grown and how much their personalities have developed from session to session.  The youngest of the three boys, Barrett, recently celebrated his first birthday.  A perfect time to update those family photos. Y’all, it’s no secret that I’ve recently become […]

Sierra | Rockaway Beach, Oregon | Huntsville Wedding Photographer

A couple of weeks ago, I made a new friend and got to photograph her!  Meet Sierra!  She is just as kind as she is beautiful – AND that says a lot because she is stunning!  We originally started chatting thanks to a Facebook group for photographers.  I was reaching out to other photogs in Oregon, because my husband and I were travelling to Portland for his job.  I knew I’d have a lot of free time while he was […]

Casey + Ben | Gulf Shores Beach Engagement Session | Huntsville Wedding Photographer

What an adventure!  Casey and Ben met up with me last weekend to photograph their engagement session at Gulf Shores Beach.  Along for the ride was their fluffy and cute dog, Riley, and Casey’s sweet parents, Steve and Cindy!  We just had the best time riding around finding the perfect locations and meeting friends along the way. The week leading up to our session the forecast called for rain.  We stayed hopeful about the weather and flexible with the start […]

Sarah + Joel | Hays Nature Preserve Fall Maternity Session

Last weekend I had the pleasure of photographing a maternity and engagement session with this beautiful woman, her fiancé, and sweet Tatum at Hays Nature Preserve.  During our initial correspondences on Facebook messenger, I knew I wanted to be her friend!  I know I sound a bit looney but hang in there.  With every message, Sarah always asked me how I was doing and wished me well.  She has the biggest heart! During the planning process, Sarah communicated to me […]

Heugel Family | Swan Creek Greenway Athens, AL

When Sheldon contacted me to photograph their family my first thought was “Oh gosh, she’s married to my husband’s boss – I better do a phenomenal job!”  Oh, I kid! I kid!  The Heugel family is just as sweet as they are cute!  We met last Saturday behind the Athens Sportsplex on the Swan Creek Greenway for our fall session.  As the four of them walked up in their blush pink and blue outfits, I may or may not have […]

Freiburger Family | Hays Nature Preserve

On Easter Eve the Freiberger family and I spent a little time together at Hays Nature Preserve. We were scheduled to meet a little over an hour before sunset to take advantage of the golden light. Upon arrival I was pleasantly surprised to see the nearby fields covered in wild flowers. It was a perfect spring day: 70(ish) degrees with the right amount of flowers in bloom. Although they are currently a family of six, not long ago I was photographing them […]

Hunter – Senior 2017

This young man was such a good sport during his senior session. It’s not everyday that a guy is so agreeable for pictures. Especially when I always want to get “one more shot” that inevitably turns into 5 more minutes. Hunter is a Jack of all Trades for sure! Basketball, football, baseball (to be captured in the spring), hunting, and academics. On top of all that he is kind hearted and very respectful. I see great success in his future!

30 Sep 2016


Every once and a while I like to take the time to shoot something just for me. It’s usually motivated by a creative yearning or a learning opportunity. In this case it was both! Studio work, although shot minimally, has opened a new door for my photography journey and has enabled me to express or create an emotion with shaping artificial light. Shelby was kind enough to drive from Birmingham to Huntsville, sit through an hour or so of hair and makeup, and model for a couple of hours while I continuously fiddled with the lighting […]

Alton + Sophia

Meet four month old Alton and his sister Sophia! They have the biggest blue eyes and the biggest hearts for each other. They pretty much melted mine! We didn’t have to coach Sophia into holding her brothers hand or be near him – that’s just where she wanted to be. <3 Alton’s mom, Jill, wanted to be sure to incorporate these blankets as they are gifts from his grandparents and uncle. Oh, those rolls! I could just eat this baby […]
