My first official shoot of 2017 was with Ashley and Wade! (I laughed thinking about how the last time I shot I was 8.5 months pregnant and not moving so well! Sure did feel awesome to be comfortable working again!) I'm technically still on maternity leave for a few more weeks, but turned out it was kinda nice to get out of the house for a while and let the creative juice flow! I knew from my first phone conversation with Ashley that I was going to LOVE her! I loved hearing their story and, as you can tell from these photos, these two are super happy and super cute together! I know their wedding day is going to be awesome! Can't wait!
Maggie and Cole were SO much fun to work with on their engagement pictures at Oak Mountain. For two people who claim not to love having their pictures taken, they sure do look photogenic to me!! Can't wait for their June 3rd wedding in Anniston!
Mary Catherine and David's wedding will be my first to shoot in 2017 and I absolutely cannot wait until March 18th! I already know this is going to be such a FUN wedding!!
My 2016 calendar was filled with 24 of the most awesome wedding clients! The majority of my weddings were in Birmingham, but I did get to travel to Nashville twice, Tuscaloosa, Cullman two times and luckily one at the beach on my wedding anniversary weekend! I learned I was pregnant in April, so I didn't book anything in November or December, having NO clue how I would feel or be able to shoot when I was super far along! The timing of everything thankfully worked out pretty perfectly! I was 7.5 months pregnant with my twins when I photographed my last wedding of the year!
My boys made their appearance on December 9th, so I have been enjoying some time off with them in December. I only have a couple of family shoots in Jan/Feb, but plan to be back in action starting in March! My spring and most of my summer calendar is booked with weddings! Looking forward to getting back into the habit soon. But in the meantime, I sure am enjoying my new role as a mom. 100x more than I even imagined I would! So very thankful that God has called and allowed me to be a photographer and now a mom. Thankful to have two of the most amazing jobs imaginable!!
Now...a favorite from each of my fabulous 2016 weddings!
