Joel+Leigh…they’re gettin’ hitched! Montgomery, Alabama Engagement Photographer

Well, hello there perfect couple.  I mean it.

Joel has two adorable boys…and guess what?  He incorporated them into the proposal.  Sigh.

Background:  When all 4 of them get together, they play a drawing game.   Here’s the proposal gist…

Step 1.  They met at Starbucks(where I love to get a Iced Skinny Caramel Macchiato.)  They get their coffee and begin the paper/drawing game…

Step 2.   Jake, age 10 with beautiful red hair, passes a piece of paper to Leigh that says, “Dad is about to propose to you! :-)”

Step 3:  Leigh is thinking, “uh oh, Jake, you just ruined your dad’s proposal…whoops, but this is funny!”

Step 4:  Leigh turns to look at her man and he is grinning ear to ear with a ring.

Step 5:  They live happily ever after.

How perfect is that proposal???   We re-created it at Leigh’s gorgeous Capital Heights home.

Then we got some super fun family shots where Joel didn’t just pretend to play the guitar, he rocked it.  I didn’t want to leave.

Next, off to Historic Prattville for some of the sweet stuff.  Awwww…

Brian+Theresa+Joshua+Luke+Laurel+grandmomma+grandaddy! Montgomery, Alabama Family Photographer

Theresa is a photographer in Tampa, but came to Montgomery to visit her parents.  She contacted me about family pictures because, guess what?  She wanted to be on the other side of the camera for once, dontyaknow!   Theresa and Brian had just bought all three kids converse, SO cute!   I love a family with personality…this crew had it!  Check out the picture of Theresa in her smokin hot purple dress accented with….her camera!  If you are near Tampa, look her up, she’s great!

Hard to pick favorites, but that 2nd to last shot really stands out and so does the straight on color shot (that you took from above) of her lying in the grass.

I also love the two B&W’s right in the middle of your post.

John+Monica+Marley…are havin’ a baby!! Montgomery, Alabama Maternity Photography

This gorgeous lady is my daughter’s Kindergarten teacher and we LOVE her!!  Ann Welch came home from school daily telling me all about her teacher’s style and make up.  Evidently, ole mum doesn’t measure up, HA!!    Monica is on Maternity leave, so we set out to get a few pics documenting her pregnancy with baby girl number 2.  I can’t wait to shoot the newborn session!


Sarah(3 months)+Grace+Joel+Emmy Montgomery, Alabama Baby Photographer

Lips.  Yes, lips.  These sisters have the most gorgeous lips!!  I love them and it makes me jealous… just kidding.  😉  Big sister Grace was so helpful during Sarah’s 3 month session in their home.  She is constantly loving on her and kissing her baby.   Emmy, their mom, is smitten with her girls and rightfully so!  I always enjoy my visits with Joel, who is SUCH a talented portrait artist.  Click here to visit his Facebook page and see all his fabulous work.

Enjoy the “my favorites” preview! 🙂

Charlotte - Such a beautiful precious family!
