The Mathews Family

I've known the Mathews Family for years since I've been photographing at their venue Mathews Manor since I started my business. So when they asked me to do their family portraits last weekend of course I was thrilled to work with them again! We started in downtown Springville for some cute shots then ended up in Micah's Meadow at Mathews Manor. Here are a few of my favorites from their session! (Oh and I did get a group photo of everyone but they asked me to keep it a secret for their Christmas cards!) Happy Holidays everyone!

Trey + Ginger {Oak Mtn Engagement}

A native Alabamian, Trey brought his bride-to-be Ginger home for Thanksgiving & they wanted to get some engagement photos made while they were here. They called me & as luck would have it, our chosen day was perfect not just weather-wise but also for all the fall color they wanted in their portraits! Being from Texas, Ginger had not seen such color so I'm especially glad Alabama was still full of color for fall - she was so excited! This sweet couple will have their wedding in Texas next winter & we wish them all the best! Congratulations!

Herring Family Portrait

What could be more fitting than to do a family portrait on the day after Thanksgiving! The Herring family met me out at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens for a fun session & while it was a bit chilly, we still managed to get some great shots! Here are a few of my favorites (including the cutest little pouty face ever!) - hope you enjoy this preview!

Baby Cordelia & the Hayes Family

Ryan & Emily are our cousins and we photographed their wedding too so when Emily called me to do baby Cordelia's newborn photos I was thrilled to finally meet her! She was born at the end of July and is cute as a button! She did great all through her session right until we put her in the Wonder Woman cape & she wasn't such a fan (I think it was the being on her tummy part, not the cape, ha ha!) but I managed to get a few cute ones of her dressed up anyways! Hope you've enjoyed this little preview of their photos & congrats to the new family of four!

The Suellentrop's {Family}

Austin & Janna were one of our wedding couples back in 2006 & they are some of the coolest peeps I know (so of course they have fantastic kids too!).  We met up out at Aldridge Gardens for their family session/baby's first birthday portrait & had a great time exploring with the kiddos!  Happy early birthday to baby Elise who will be turning one later this month!  Hope you enjoy this preview of favorites from their session!
