MANDY, STEVE, AVA and ALEX | huntsville, al photographer

I am beyond excited to share this session! I had the honor of photographing Mandy of Mandy Owens Photography and her family!  It is always a huge privilege to photograph another photographer's family.  I truly love being able to bounce off ideas and have their artistic vision come to life.   Mandy is an extremely talented photographer, a beautiful writer and an unconditional loving mother and wife.  Her and her family have so much fun together.  Her kids.. are made for the camera.  They are simply adorable.  And their eyes!  Holy moly their gorgeous!!  They welcomed me into their home which they recently moved into and showed me around their property. Ah.  It was breathtaking and I would have every session there if I could :)  Mandy, Steve, Ava and Alex, thank you for such a wonderful session!  I'm so happy you have met you all!

A quote from Mandy.. "I have always had a major hangup about getting my picture made. I LOATHE seeing myself in a picture... maybe that's why I love the other side of the camera so much - it's safe on my side. ;) However, I had to get over myself because I realized there were hardly any pictures with me in them in the seven year history of our little family... and regardless of what i think about myself, my kids will one day grow up and treasure our family pictures, so it's important to have them made."

JAN, BRYAN and RILEY | huntsville, al photographer

Are you ready for some cuteness?? You are about to meet Miss Riley {8 months old}! She had quite the personality :) One thing I love most about what I do is that I get to meet (and capture!) growing families. I love witnessing the overall joy from parents, especially first time parents! Jan and Bryan were no different. They couldn't keep themselves from smiling at their adorable little girl, playing with her little toes, and giving her lots of kisses. We started the session off with the three of them and by the end we were playing dress up with Riley! I loved.every.minute. And you have to check out the tutu Jan made herself! Below are my favorites! P.S. I'm kind of obsessed with baby feet..

Outfit change above!  When Riley was her happiest :)
Time for dress up! :)

I told you I love baby feet!

Thank you Jan and Bryan for the opportunity to capture your sweet baby Riley at 8 months old!
