Gray | Family Documentary | Fairhope Family Photographer | Fairhope Alabama

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.

Koehler | Lifestyle Family in Downtown Fairhope Alabama | Fairhope Family Photographer

Allison contacted a couple of weeks ago and said her and her family will be traveling from West Virginia and staying in Fairhope for a couple of days to visit family. During her stay she wanted to capture the charm of our sweet little town with some family photos. Her son was going to turn two and she wanted to document this little time before his birthday.

I was not only honored that she asked me to do this, but I was thrilled to do this for her. She was so sweet and kind and I knew our session was going to be lovely.

I love lifestyle sessions. Especially sessions like Allisons. No fuss, no props, just great conversation and authentic emotion. Plus, this town of mine has a lot to offer and is a beautiful backdrop for photos.. Why not take advantage and explore the town!

We strolled and window shopped, took the iconic clock photograph that is truly a must for locals and visitors a like, and ended our session at Mr. Genes Beans Ice cream shop.

It was a wonderful afternoon and I walked away feeling like Allison and her family were more like friends than clients.

VanNahmen Family | Fairhope Family Photographer

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.
