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.

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.

It won't be like this forever. | Lifestyle and Family Documentary | Fairhope Family Photographer

It won’t be like this forever.

The days are long, but the years are short. Really short.

Being a mother is hard. Motherhood doesn’t come with vacation days or even sick days. It’s hard to describe but even through the sweat and tears, there is a a kind of joy, a joy that only a mother could really understand. It’s 3 AM feedings, scrapped knee kisses, and the ‘one more song mama’ even though you have already sang twenty.

It’s an unconditional love.

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.

Meet Bowen. 

This sweet adorable little babe is just too cute for words.  

I was so touched and honored to have been able to capture this moment for the Eason's. 

The Eason's and I met earlier this year when I captured a mama and me session for Jordan and her son, Barrett. We quickly realized that Zach and my husband served alongside in the Alabama National Guard. It was a fun moment between us all!

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 Cathy and her family the day after Easter in Orange Beach. The weather couldn't have been more perfect. Not only was the weather amazingly beautiful, but the beach was surprisingly quiet and only a handful of people were there. Everything was perfect. The VanNahem's family session was my first session back after having my third child and I was so excited to hear that Cathy found me on instagram and wanted me to take their vacation photos. Nothing makes me happier than to know I'm capturing memories for someone.

The Bennett's | Family Documentary | Fairhope Family Photographer

Since it's Thursday, I figured I do a little throw back to one of my favorite sessions I had last year.

Family Documentary is something that I LOVE sooo much. These sessions are real and authentic. I approach these sessions like as if I am a 'fly on the wall.'  These sessions are not posed and are unscripted. I capture everything from the sweet snuggles to the full blown out temper tantrums.

These sessions mirror what I capture of my own family and I think that is why I love them so much because I am giving my clients something real. Something they will be able to look back and remember how those days really use to be. 

I had a couple of these sessions last year, but one that sticks out the most is my time with Ric and Lauren Bennett.

I don't know who you will be, but I know you will be my everything.

Bethany and Daniel welcomed their sweet baby boy into the world this past November. When Bethany contacted me to capture the birth of her son, I was truly honored. So when I was asked to come back and capture Drew's home newborn session, I was beyond excited! The Straughan's welcomed me with open arms into their new gorgeous home. Even though the weather was less than ideal, we had a great time and I was so happy to get some little snuggles from baby Drew. 

Drew doesn't know it yet, but he won the jackpot when he got Daniel and Bethany as his parents. I have never met two kinder, more loving people who really adore not only one another, but also their sweet child.

Where Have All The Cowboys Gone? | Fairhope Family Photographer

Since it's a New Year, I figure I would write a little introduction about yours truly.  I'm so blessed to be able to do what I love to do. And since I consider all of my clients my friends, why not let all of my friends get to know me a little better?

There's really no easy way to start and I'm completely awkward when it comes to introductions. Not to mention, despite being an english major in college, I'm the absolute worst at spelling and grammatical errors.  You have been warned.

....So here it goes.
