Lyndsi & Bryan's Graduation Session

This sweet couple was such a joy to work with.  Watching Lyndsi and Bryan talk about their life together the past 6 years was so amazing.  They met in high school and both went to Alabama for college.  Bryan played lacrosse for the Alabama club team and Lyndsi was involved in Alpha Delta Pi sorority. 

Thank you guys for letting me capture such a wonderful time in your life.  Congratulations to you both. 

Jessica & Kevin's Engagement Session in Tuscaloosa, Alabama

Jessica & Kevin were my last session in Tuscaloosa for a while.  I shot in my favorite place, the University of Alabama Arboretum, and we shot in the morning before it got too hot and humid.  The Arboretum is a gorgeous place with lots of green and nature, which is the style they wanted to go for.  They brought their two little dogs along with them, Oliver & Ellie, who were just as sweet as can be.  Jessica & Kevin are the kind of people you want to be around;  they light up the place when they smile at each other and Kevin can make her laugh in an instant.  

My favorite story that these two tell is how they met.  J & K are both in medical school and oddly enough, they met the first week of it in their anatomy lab.  Jessica said she would spare me of the gory details (which I can imagine were not all ice cream and unicorns), and tell me about the first time they met outside of school.  Some medical students went out to a restaurant for dinner one night and once Kevin walked in, Jess realized the seat next to her was open.  She "saw me walk in and scrambled to get her stuff out of the chair next to her, almost demanding that I sit next to her" says Kevin.  They were inseparable ever since, as you can tell from their images.  I can't wait to shoot their wedding this November in Tuscaloosa and go back to my favorite town to do my favorite thing.  

The Morton Family

You know those clients that you just absolutely fall in love with? Well for me, it's the Morton Family. This family has always held a special place in my heart.  After shooting Britanny & Jason's 2014 wedding and then shooting Camilla at only 9 days old, I knew they were going to be clients for a lifetime.

Camilla Shelby is now 8 months old and smilier than ever, which you'll be able to tell very quickly. Between Mama's love & Daddy's kisses, Mills was just as cute as can be. I love when clients become more clients, so thank you Morton family for doing that.  As sad as I am to be leaving Tuscaloosa, I know that when I come back to visit, this family will be first on my list to shoot.  Shooting in the Tuscaloosa Arboretum is always a treat and this sunny spring day was nothing short of perfection.   

Stay tuned for this shoot getting featured later this summer! I am thrilled about it and will be sharing it as soon as it does.  As of this past Saturday, I am an Alabama alumni and ready to take on the big world.  Stay tuned for a blog post soon about my next steps into the real world.
