3 years ago, when I was 2 months from giving birth to my 3rd girl I met this sweet family. It was their, now 4 year olds first birthday session. As an Alabama Photographer in Vestavia, I’ve enjoyed photographing them a few times to document their maternity session with baby girl number 2 and again for their newborn session when she arrived. Watching your children grow and getting to know you through the years makes my job even more special.
What none of us knew, when they booked this session, is this would likely be my last time photographing. The very next day they started their move to another state. My heart was truly overwhelmed with sadness.
To compliment my light and airy style, mom chose a dress for herself and big sister from my client wardrobe. Big sisters dress is from the Knotted Fern and is the perfect mix of comfortable and flowy. I love offering a photo friendly dresses for mom’s and girls to make preparing for your session easier.
As an Alabama photographer I believe photo sessions should be fun for the kids with lots of games and movement. This usually means an outdoor session is the most ideal environment for your family portrait sessions. when you give kids lots of room to roam and be themselves I believe it’s the best way to bring out their personalities. I always love sneaking in a classic, everybody looking at the camera portrait that the kids don’t know they’re cooperating for.
