I truly love family documentary sessions. They are hands down my favorite thing to capture. Having a family welcome me into their home and be completely raw and real with me while I’m clicking away is just beautiful.

Christy reached out to me and explained how much she really wanted everyday life photos of her and her family. She and her family had recently moved to the Fairhope, Alabama from Canada and she wanted some photos of her with her family in their new house just doing their thing. She went on to explain that she has maybe a handful of photos of her with her kids and how she desperately wanted some of her just adoring her children doing all of the mundane things that they do on a daily basis. That’s when I immediately felt connected to her because us moms are usually the ones taking photos. I knew I had to get those moments her.

Harper | Family Documentary | Orange Beach, Alabama Family Documentary Photographer

I was honored to have been able to document the Duncan and Harper Family beach trip this past week. Elizabeth, who is a photographer herself in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, contacted me and I immediately said yes! I was truly honored that another photographer would want me to capture her and her family enjoying their vacation.

I met Elizabeth and her family in Orange Beach, Alabama. Her mother, father, sister and her family were already at the beach soaking up the sun. The beach was packed full of beach goers enjoying their day by the sea. Elizabeth’s son was quick to jump in and find sea shells. It was such a fun day!

By the end of the afternoon, I felt so connected to this sweet family. Being able to document their annual vacation to Orange Beach was so special. As a mom and a photographer I was happy for Elizabeth because she plays double duty when it comes to capturing her family’s moments. This time, she was able to not only be in the photos, but to enjoy the day.

Rachel wanted to document her family one last time in the home that meant the most to her. This was the first home her and husband bought together. This was the home that welcomed both of her children. This was the home that helped start their story.

Rachel loved her front yard. She told me that her family had lots of picnics, relaxation, and every inch of that yard has been full of laughter. So we spent the entire afternoon reminiscing on special memories that her family shared in that house, playing, and eating popsicles. It was a laid back fun afternoon. No schedule, no prompts. Just hanging out and letting the day unfold.

All their life in this world and all their adventures had only been the cover and the title page: now at last they were beginning Chapter One of the Great Story which no one on earth has read: which goes on forever: in which every chapter is better than the one before.

Almond | Family Documentary | Fairhope Family Photographer

When the Almonds contacted me about doing a family documentary session, I was beyond excited! Family Documentary is my favorite genre of photography. The simplicity and authenticity of it all is not only exciting as a photographer, but as a mom, its extremely heartwarming and beautiful.

Unscripted, unposed, real moments. Those are the moments that last forever.

So after discussing what the day in the life at the Almonds house consisted of we decided to go for a #targetrun.

Williams Family | Fairhope Family Photographer

I've known Caroline and Greg for many years now. In fact, we went to high school together! My husband and Greg graduated together and Caroline and myself were one year apart. Not to mention, Greg and my husband, Andrew, are both Captains in the National Guard and are both police officers at the same department! Caroline and I have been friends for almost 7 years now, she was even my matron of honor at my wedding. 

So needless to say, I love this family.

Our session couldn't have gone better. The light was AMAZING that evening, Caroline had all of her boys so well dressed, and everything just fell into place. 

Their session was simply perfect.

I met Caitlin two years ago at Thomas Hospital in Fairhope, Alabama. If you know me personally, than you know that the past 4 years have been pretty tough on me and my family. My first son, Patrick, was born at 26 weeks due to me having severe pre-eclampsia and post-HELLP syndrome and we have dealt with a lot of medical issues since then. 

Fast forward to two years ago. We were trying every which way to help my son to not only talk but to eat. Early Intervention recommended we go see a feeding specialist, so we asked our doctor for a recommendation to help us find a specialist.

 Enter Caitlin.

Caitlin became my family's hero. She gave my son the confidence and tools to not only talk but to eat. She also gave us a referral to see another specialist to laser off a tongue tie that we had no idea he even had! Caitlin will always have a special place in my family's heart. She helped give my son a chance and helped him to not get left behind.  How do you know not love someone like that. 

So when Caitlin told me she was expecting and asked me to take her newborn portraits of her son, I immediately said yes! After all that she had done for my son Patrick, I knew I wanted to capture this precious time for her. 

When I arrived at our session, we chatted about what moms chat about-our kids. We laughed and exchanged parenthood tips. She was truly glowing during the entire session.

Motherhood looks beautiful on her.

What is Family Documentary? | Fairhope Family Photographer

Family Documentary is an upcoming genre that is unposed and unscripted. Instead of buying new outfits and meeting me at a gorgeous location, I will come to you where you let me in and capture perfect moments that tell your family story.

These sessions are my absolute favorite because they are so real and true. There is so much beauty in the everyday moments and these moments need to be celebrated and documented because you are enough, just the way you are.
