Family Photographers in Birmingham, AL – Bagby maternity session

Family Photographers in Birmingham, AL are around every corner. As one of many to choose from I consider it a high honor when you choose me for your family, maternity session.

There are so many reasons to choose a photographer. So how do you know if my style is right for you among the many family photographers in Birmingham, AL?

Do you like light and airy images that are void of vibrant colors? Do you like to have direction during your photo session while also maintaining a less posed look?

My style takes on a lifestyle approach with some light posing where needed. This means I will give you direction to create moments but not control where every hand or foot is placed. I love to play games and have children interact with parents and siblings in every way possible. This includes many hugs, kisses, spins and twirls.

The Bagby family wanted to capture all aspects of their family during a family maternity session. Since their young son was involved fun moments to get him smiling and laughing were a must.

Belly hugs and family hugs are a great way to incorporate little ones into a maternity session in a fun way.

Portraits of mom and dad alone are a must. I love a variety of more candid moments but always include portraits with everyone looking at the camera.

During a maternity session I save portraits of mom alone till the end of the session just in case Dad and siblings run out of steam. Mom chose a beautiful, off white Ingrid and Isabel dress I have available for all mom’s to borrow in my client closet. This is a perk I love offering to help make your session easier to plan. One less thing to worry about is always a bonus.
