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.

Another New England Summer

Lake Willoughby, VT

My family had the privilege of working our second summer at Camp Spofford in New Hampshire. I ran the camp’s dining hall service for guests. This time was incredibly refreshing and life-giving. I feel blessed to be able to spend my summer days with family. This summer we chose to spend the majority of our time-off exploring the beauty of New England. This summer we ventured off to Newfound Lake (NH), York Beach (Maine), Lake Willoughby (VT), and of course, countless hours at our own Lake Spofford (NH). Below are a few photos of our 8 week adventure in New England.

Daniel Girls

I recently got the chance to take portraits of Emily & Meg (formerly) Daniel w/ their daughters in my Birmingham studio. I photographed Meg’s wedding in 2008 & Emily’s in 2009. I was excited when they approached me to do a session while Emily was down south visiting Meg. Hopefully a session in the near future can include the men of the family, but for now enjoy some Daniel girl joy.
