The Chancey Family

I’m thankful to have been able to photograph my good friend and colleague Caleb Chancey’s beautiful young family in their home last month. I love the chance to enter the home and document families in their own personal spaces. Caleb, who is also an amazing musician, loves listening to records with his son. My favorite photograph from this session is the two of them around their turntable listening to Duquette Johnston’s vinyl.

Abby & Alex, Engagement

Because I’m from a small town, working in the heart of downtown Birmingham has allowed me to live out my city-girl dreams. I work in a 5th floor loft and frequent a 2nd Avenue coffee shop…. I mean, just call me Felicity Porter.

When Bryan asked Alex and me how we wanted our engagement shoot to feel, the answer was a no-brainer. Urban. We couldn’t imagine a better way to portray this season of our lives than to be documented in the city we call home.

The shoot began just outside of ABP’s building, the Phoenix, and we finished at Urban Standard (the aforementioned coffee shop) after a pit stop for peanuts on a cobble lane. I told you. Urban.

The entire experience was nothing short of incredible. In addition to simply having fun with some of my favorite people, we were handed Polaroids during the shoot that exceeded my vision for the session. Bryan gave us the gift of his art with the below images, and I could not be more thrilled with the outcome of our city shoot in Birmingham.

All images, except for the Polaroid above, were captured on a Rolleiflex.
