MC and her fam!! Montgomery, Alabama Family Photography

3 things:

1.  MC has my heart…totally.  Those bright innocent eyes and her baby-babble turn my insides to mush.   MC is now one.   She loves to say, “hey dere.”  Yep, pretty cute, right?

2.  Her older brothers are HILARIOUS.  I have to tell them to quit making ME laugh.  I mean, I have to get these pictures IN FOCUS!  A photog falling on the ground laughing doesn’t produce good results. 😉

3.  Her mam and pap…two of the kindest souls to ever walk the planet.   I have loved my year with these folks.  LOVED.    I love what Melissa picked for everyone to wear…awesome job, lady.  I love how Andy throws his favorite daughter up in the air…and I love the genuine love this family has for one another.

Sadie is 2!! Montgomery, Alabama Child Photographer

3 Things:

1.  Cutest redhead ever.  Seriously, isn’t she a DOLL!!!  She has the personality to match and I spent our whole session smiling!

2.  I photographed Sadie in the Spring and I cannot believe how much she has grown!  I enjoyed having mom and dad join us this time.

3.  Don’t you just love her Matilda Jane and wee cowgirl boots?  Mama is raising her right, ha!!


Sara - She’s adorable! I love her hair and her clothing. One of my favorites is the one of the little girl playing peek a boo behind the tree with her dad. So sweet!

Stephanie - These are FAB! She is an absolute doll, and you did an amazing job capturing her personality!!

3 things:

3.  Logan in the basket are some of my favorite outdoor baby shots I’ve ever taken.  I LOVE them!

sally - So, so beautiful. The one under the tree is just luscious, and I love the one with the parents on the ground holding up baby and that gorgeous light. Beautiful work.

Anna is 4 months! Montgomery, Alabama Baby Lifestyle Photographer

3 things:

1.  Playing catch up on the ole blog. 🙂   First up is this beautiful 4 month old!

2.  I LOVE my time with Anna’s family.  Her mama always has a big smile on her face.  I cannot believe she is 4 months already!

3.  Not only is Anna precious, she has an equally adorable big sister.  She is my helper…and she has the best room evah…see the window seat below.  Helllloooo photographer’s dream spot!

The Mock Family!! Montgomery, Alabama Family Photographer

5 things:

1.  This was a new shooting spot for me and I fell in LOVE!   I adore shooting families…especially ones that aren’t afraid to show a bit of affection.   That’s what it’s all about folks, love for one another.

2.  Just SEE if you can guess the personalities of these two boys based on these shots.  I’ll give you a clue…1 of them could be a J.Crew model, is serious and sweet and loves his ma and pa.  The other one is funny, can make awesome noises, never meets a stranger and lives for laughter.

3.  I told their mom, Paige, who by the way, I’ve know forever, (wow, that was a lot of commas…probably inserted incorrectly) that I wasn’t worried about their wardrobe b/c that girl is ALWAYS dressed to the nines.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen her wear the same thing twice.

4.   AND, YA-HOO, we had WONDERFUL weather…like, it was 70 degrees!!  pleasestaythatwaypleasestaythatwaypleasestaythatway…

5.  My favorite quote from the session was when one of the boys said, “If you’re gonna talk about girls, I’m going to smile. ”   It wasn’t just him smiling, I assure you!

Emily - Wow! I think all of the most attractive families in your state have caught on to your talent, because these are shot magnificently, and your clients are stunning!

sally - Totally awesome as always, Allison! I love all the posing. And I especially love the closeups of the boys – such beautiful eyes and gorgeous lighting.
