Cathy.

This gorgeous aspiring actress was in serious need of updated headshots. Lucky for me, I got to do the job! And also lucky for me it was a pretty easy job. This girl is gorgeous with her waist-length locks and bright green eyes.

Jamie.

The moment I saw Jamie in her dress I thought she had stepped right out of a fairy tale from my childhood! Her beauty was so stunningly classic complimented by her sweeping dress with all its exquisite lace and beading. She truly looked like a princess ready to marry her prince. 

And this past weekend, she did marry her prince! Which means I finally get to share these lovely bridal portraits from our session a few weeks back.

Abi + Josh

It’s not often the parents of a bride and groom know each other long before their children were even born. Abi and Josh’s relationship was built on the already strong foundation of their parents’ friendship. It was beautiful to see two separate families-already so close-officially become one.

I am so thankful that Abi and Josh asked me to photograph their wedding. I instantly fell in love with wedding photography and look forward to learning more and growing in this area.

Colorado.

Absolutely breathtaking. And I’m not just talking about the boy (wink wink), the scenery surrounding me on my summer vacation was nothing short of inspiring. As the sun set each night, my hands basically found their own way to my camera. Luckily, my wonderful boyfriend was willing to play model one evening.

Courtney.

Courtney loves to get lost in a good book. We grabbed her copy of Alice In Wonderland, and made it outside just in time for a whimsical golden hour shoot between the trees in her backyard.

“Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”

Hillary.

There are some people you meet and know immediately you’ve found a kindred spirit. When I was introduced to Hillary through our mutual friend Miranda, I knew this girl was going to become a best friend. 

Plus, she’s extremely photogenic (which for a photographer, is an important trait in a new friend.)

Taken at Branchwater Apartments in Birmingham, Alabama.

Pants Store: Jordan

In addition to shooting Carmen (previous post), I also got to work with Jordan, a sweet and naturally beautiful girl. This shoot was one of her first times modeling, and she did an excellent job! 

Taken in Crestline, Birmingham.

Pants Store: Carmen

It was a pleasure to work with this beautiful model and friend again for the Pants Store spring shoot. Despite the shoot taking place in the middle of the day, we were able to find some shady spots to avoid the harsh lighting. And I experimented with a reflector for the first time!

Parking Deck.

Over a brief holiday break, I had the opportunity to explore my home city with friends and a couple new faces. We came across this gorgeous view of Birmingham atop a parking deck that required quite the precarious (and potentially dangerous) walk upon its edge to take in the breathtaking skyline.

Chris.

This is Chris. Not only is Chris an amazing graphic designer, but he is also one of my favorite coworkers at Telegraph Branding. Needless to say, I was delighted when he asked me to take some quick headshots for his personal portfolio site.

Pants Store

These cheery shots are for the Pants Store Holiday Campaign! It was a blast being on location with professional lights to use and this nice wood backdrop. I felt so professional!

Plus it was fun to add the little Christmas touches like ornaments, candy canes and pine cones.
