Playful Family Session in Montgomery, AL

November 28, 2022

When Alexandra reached out to me about having a family session was struck immediately with excitement because this would be the first family session with Bud & Ann Pelham joining! But I never could have guessed how picture-perfect Alexandra and Bud’s little ones be in front of the camera! Alexandra told me they really just wanted some pictures that would make her heart sing, and you know that’s something I always gravitate towards! But what is most incredible about this family is the undeniable love they have for each other. So, as we prepared for their Montgomery Museum family session, I grew more excited by the day to spend time with them and document their sweet little family.

Alexandra is the most amazing mom. The first time I met her, I knew she was a wonder woman because of her kindness, her mile-wide smile the second you hug her, and her hilarious bribing skills to get her kids to show a pretty smile. I knew the perfect place to let her babies run around was at the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts. I actually came here as a kid with my grandmother and childhood friend to see the ducks & geese, luckily no one was chased this time!

As we took their family photos, bribing Ann Pelham and Charlie with skittles and lollipops, Alexandra and Bud mentioned they were excitedly looking forward to the candid shots in their photos. Boy, did we ever capture exactly that! I told everyone to just have fun, enjoy themselves and play tag. Kids aren’t supposed to sit still and smile at the camera the entire time. They are meant to have some fun! When it comes to family sessions, the most important thing I can do as your photographer is create the images of your dreams that bring your personalities to life, so delivering on these wishes is so rewarding!

But let’s be honest: how could the images be anything less than playful with a group like this one in front of the lens? Whether these images become the Christmas card on the fridges of their loved ones or just the art decorating their home, I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to capture the Smith family during a fun-filled Montgomery, Alabama engagement session.

Happy Holidays you four! I hope the rest of your Christmas season is effortless and filled with joy!

auras biggest dreams for the year to come





WHY we're the perfect match


Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth. Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Grammar. The Big Oxmox advised her not to do so, because there were thousands of bad Commas, wild Question Marks and devious Semikoli, but the Little Blind Text didn’t listen. She packed her seven versalia, put her initial into the belt and made herself on the way.

"our gallery not only reflected who we were as a couple, but also gave us a gift of reliving our wedding day."

I had the pleasure of having Perry Ann photograph my wedding earlier this year and I was BLOWN away by the gallery . I felt so beautiful in each of my photos, and that they not only reflected who we were as a couple, but also gave us a gift of reliving our wedding day. She is a true artist, professional, and incredible at her craft. Highly recommend working with her if you're seeking a photographer - you won't regret it!
