Birmingham Baby Girl in Studio

One of the most rewarding parts of being a wedding photographer, for me at least, is when our wedding couples start their own families. What a joy to be included in yet another chapter in their lives. I feel like I am an “aunt” to many babies–some of whom are just starting preschool. Recently, Jenna Kate (married to Drake in 2011) invited me to photograph her daughter’s baptism at the same church were she and Drake were married. Baby Carley was absolutely perfect during the entire baptism–she even smiled for the camera! Check out this page from her custom designed book.


Jenna Kate brought Carley to the studio for another session where Carley wore her amazingly beautiful baptism gown and bonnet. This is the image we chose for the book’s cover…simply gorgeous!


We also did some more casual photos that day featuring Carley in a bowl surrounded by tulle and wearing pearls and a bow. Can you get more girlie than that? Sometimes more than one image in a collection gives a little more to the story…


Jenna Kate is coming Tuesday to pick up all the photos, and I can hardly wait for her to see them in person. What an honor to know that the images we created of this milestone for Carley will be passed down for generations.
