Katie and Ryan have become such dear friends, and this past weekend we shared in their sweet baby girl, Austin’s, first birthday party and dedication.  With Austin’s first birthday coming up this week, it made me think back on this past year and all the moments leading up to Austin’s arrival.  Katie shared her story on her blog, Still + Know, about the struggle she had with getting pregnant, and my heart goes out to anyone who has had this struggle or loss.  Their little girl, Austin, has been such a blessing to them, and to see them now as parents, and to look back at these images, fills my heart with so much joy.

Hair and Makeup //  The Transformation

Tori and Drew have always been near and dear to me!  Their wedding was the very first wedding I photographed when I moved to Huntsville.  They have become like family!  Tori and Drew are now parents to the sweetest baby boy, Gannon!  I love being able to share in such beautiful milestones and chapters of life.  We got together when Gannon turned 6 months old, which is easily one of my favorite ages as they begin discovering new things! 🙂

This session has me dreaming of green grass and life by the water!  I had such a blast with this family last summer.  Will and Annie were 3 and 1.5 at the time of this session, and full of energy!!  They brought along their pup, Daffodil, which added to the fun.  Lake Guntersville made for a perfect backdrop.  And a bonus for the kids, there was a playground!  Some of my favorite moments from their family session featured below 🙂

Meet baby Rex, and his proud parents Evan and Brittney!  Evan and Brittney welcomed me into their home for his newborn session.  He was just a few weeks old and cute as could be!

I love taking this first part of the year to reflect back on the year prior.  2013 was filled with so many beautiful moments and I am just reminded how much I love what I do, how much I love my couples and families, and how I much I just love pure joy!  February marked my third year of owning my own business here in Huntsville and I am so grateful and so blessed to have the love and support from so many.  To each and every one of you, thank you!  Your words of encouragement continue to inspire me!  Cheers to a wonderful new year!
