Summer Mini-Sessions!!!

Well, I usually only do mini-sessions around the holidays, and while those plans are still in the making, I have decided to do a late summer round as well! I'm so excited!! When I think of summer, I think of many, many things - among those is WATERMELON! So, I thought it would be super cute to do watermelon minis to celebrate the end of summer and the beginning of fall (while watermelons are still in season!). Here are the details you need to know:

When: Sunday, August 22nd from 2 pm - 7 pm

Where: Kiesel Park in Auburn, AL near the gray shed

How Much? $55

What does it include? a 15-20 minute session of your child(ren) enjoying a yummy slice of watermelon! Props, including the watermelon, will all be set up. 8-10 final images to choose from and your choice of 3 digital files with copyright release. Option to purchase prints from any of the final images at 10% off.

Who can come? This round of mini's is just for the kiddos! Capture them at their sweet innocence enjoying a yummy slice of watermelon in the shade during hot summer hours. Great for kids of any age, but I prefer children that can sit up good. Even if your sweetie can't eat watermelon or doesn't enjoy watermelon, there will be cute stuff set up that will follow the watermelon theme.

This is perfect for clients that have already enjoyed a great full session with me this year but could still use a few shots of their kiddos having a good time. If you are looking for a new photographer, this is also a great time to try me out and have a good time with me! :) To reserve your spot, please contact me via email at and let me know what time you want. You must be able to pay the mini session fee at the time of booking to reserve your spot.

I'm so excited about these, and I look forward to spending the afternoon eating watermelon with some cuties!! :)

Boys Will Be Boys....

I was really looking forward to this session and meeting this little cutie, and I think his mom was excited, too! However, sometimes things don't always go as planned. :) This little guy had way too much to do at the park that he didn't even want to THINK about having his picture taken! The session didn't last very long, and we are hoping to reschedule it for next month and try it again. But I did manage to get these few great shots! :)

What a Sweet Family!

I love photographing families, especially those with sweet little girls in them. :) Little girls are sooooo fun and easy to photograph! Why? Because they LOVE the camera! Love, love, love it! They are (usually) always happy and smiling and posing for the camera. These girls are the definition for that statement! We had a great time! It was HOT (Dad was glad to get back in the air conditioned car!) and the mosquitoes were bad, but it was all worth it. In the words of a fellow photographer friend of mine, "the next time a client asks me what they should wear for their session, I'm going to show them this post!" The outfits were perfect! A great color and perfect mix of patterns and solids. I adore these guys! Thanks so much for trusting me with these memories of your sweet family. I had such a great time meeting you guys! Enjoy the preview! :)

Happy Retirement, Mrs. King! :)

I certainly cannot think of a better retirement gift than to give the gift of photography! :) Hiring a photographer provides memories that you can't get back, memories from this particular moment in time and no other. Memories that you probably didn't think you needed to remember. Memories that may not have been created in a long time. Those memories turn into artwork that hang on your wall and last a lifetime. Mrs. King recently retired, and her family decided to give her just this. I've had the privilege of photographing her sweet grandson since he was 4 days old, and I was thrilled to be able to take pictures of him with his family! Congratulations on your retirement, Mrs. King! You have a beautiful family, inside and out, and I hope you cherish these memories for a lifetime! Enjoy the preview! :)

I didn't think I would ever get to meet these beautiful people! :) We've had this scheduled for a few months now, and something also seemed to happen at the wrong time. Then we would have to reschedule. After doing that a few times, we FINALLY made it happen! Mom is a fellow photographer friend of mine (check her out here), and I'm always a little nervous and anxious to photograph a fellow photographer just because we know what we want and we want it GOOD! Hopefully I have delivered! It was great to finally get to meet all of you. Thanks for choosing me to capture you guys. You have the most gorgeous daughter EVER! Thanks for braving the heat and the mosquitoes, too! Enjoy the preview! :)

The Hill Brothers

What sweet boys! Mom and Dad are so very lucky to have these two handsome boys! :) Both of them participated in my Cutest Baby Contest, so I already felt like I knew them both. Little guy is only 3 months old, but I can almost guarantee that he will have gorgeous blue eyes just like his big brother! I had such a great time with this family, and it was so much fun to spend time with both boys. Thanks so much for trusting me with these sweet memories! Enjoy the preview! :)

I mean, seriously. It doesn't get any cuter than this kid! :) Mom and Dad entered Tucker into my Cutest Kid Contest on facebook and he won 1st place with over 400 votes! It's so easy to see why he won! Tucker won a free session with me, and I was so happy to see him so soon. Not only is this kiddo a total cutie pie, but he has just as cute of a personality. He had a blast walking around the park for his session. He was all smiles and giggles - we were done in record speed, which made me sad. I didn't want him to leave! :) Thanks so much, Mom and Dad, for entering your sweetie in the contest and campaigning so hard for him to win. I hope you will find that it was well worth it all! :) Enjoy the preview!!

Sweet Baby Turner

I had the privilege of photographing Turner's big brother his first year, and I was thrilled to find out that Mom and Dad were expecting another little boy! :) We didn't get to do newborn pictures with big brother, so Mom wasn't missing out on this one. I was in town when he was born, which was PERFECT! He must have known that his photographer was anxiously waiting for him! :) And not only was his timing perfect, but he was perfect. He slept the whole time I was there! And I got to see his big brother again, so it was fun day! Mom and Dad, thank you for trusting me with these precious memories again with your second son. He is beautiful in every way. Enjoy the preview! :)
