Celebrating 2016.

What an incredible year 2016 was for us.

We moved out. Ventured on our own. Booked some fabulous weddings. Participated in Birmingham’s Big Fake Wedding! Entered some national contests. Finished school. Photographed family non-stop. Did a ton of personal work. Met some incredible people! Saw some gorgeous bellies, families, couples & kids. Supported other small businesses – promoted whole heartedly. But most of all, we grew.

What will 2017 bring?

For us, we plan to – be present more. Blog more. Gift more. Get published again. Book a solid wedding summer. Continue to meet & connect with great people. Try something new. & travel.

Thank you. For your support. Your love & encouragement. My clients push me to continually be better and my friends/family keep me going when I’m unsure of myself. There’s no way I’d be here without y’all. I really am grateful for all of y’all!

Cheers to this crazy new adventure of a new year!

More Woods & Families.

Meet the Kopecky’s.

This is my sister, my niece & nephew, my brother in law. My sister is always ready for family portraits, my brother in law – not so much. But man have they made some cute babies & we can’t lie, they photograph beautifully. Corlee-Ann & her brother have become quite the little hams with my camera and that makes my heart happy! Until next time!

Wooded Family Maternity.

The Paul’s.

I went to high school with these two! I’ve also been blessed with the task of photographing their first maternity photos, Madi’s newborns, their second maternity photos & Colt’s newborns – you must’ve seen them before. I love these guys to death! It’s been a long time but each time I get to catch up on life, see how they’ve grown, learn about what they’re into currently and play with some spunky little kids! Keep on coming y’all!

Wooded Families

The Jones.

This family is hilarious. Chris & Kalyn are getting married next weekend and I was lucky enough to photograph their first family session! I always enjoy my clients, but these guys were so much fun. Kas – crazy cute 11 year old with some serious flirt skills. We play kickball together on Thursday, so seeing these two in real clothes, not yelling at a ref was a treat. & I get to attend my first wedding as a guest in a few days! I hope you guys enjoy your lives together in laughter every day.

Woodsy Portraits

Kim Possible.

This sweet little babe is a great friend! We’ve been working together on a project for one of her classes so it seemed fitting to have her model for one of my classes. A black and white theme full of textures. Naturally, I found myself in the woods. & oh the delight! While I’m working to get my Certificate in Portrait Photography, I generally find myself shooting with more of a purpose. I enjoy shooting with a goal and theme, it’s an incredible way to expand the way I photograph. And for this assignment I was lucky enough to have such a captivating model. I look forward to all the new adventures these classes will be taking me on!


Texas Couples

Kyla + Nathan

For crying out loud you two. You’re so cute together, you put most of us to shame. I enjoyed y’all so much. I know you’ll enjoy so many more sessions together! & Echo! Ridiculously sweet, can’t help but love her too! Kyla, you’ve set out on a new journey with your business and I’m so excited to watch you and it both grow. To support you. There is nothing quite like watching others achieve their goals and develop even bigger dreams. If you didn’t know Kyla has her own business, you can check it out here. Congrats y’all & much luck!

Baby Colton


Oh sweet boy! You look just like your sissy! I’m lucky enough to photograph your family for most occasions, so it was no secret I’d be here to photograph you. We all adore you and your sweet rolls, your ability to sleep through positioning, kids playing, wardrobe changes & doggies sniffing your sweet skin. Madi loves you to pieces, she’ll be the best big sister you could ask for. You look more and more like your daddy every day, way to go JP! I can’t get over how precious you are! But not to worry, if I know your mother, we’ll see each other again real soon.


Vintage-Cotton Senior Portraits


How lucky we were to score these awesome vintage planes and trucks. And how perfect you look with them! Being a senior in high school isn’t always easy but you’ve got great role models and aspirations for life. I’m so happy you found your way to me, I can’t wait to watch you grow into something spectacular! You’ve got one more month & you’re off to college, the world will be lucky to meet you!

Hey beautiful girl. Most of the time when we think about photography sessions, we think we need a reason. Family portraits, senior photographs, pregnant memories, vows. But rarely, do we decide that we just want to remember ourselves and our journeys. Kristi & I met up for fun, just to remember this time in her life. Pivotal moments that don’t require a vow or any particular reason at all. But I’m so glad we did! I hope that when you look back on these you see how beautiful your heart really is. I hope you are reminded of your strength and all the lessons life taught you to get here. And know, I can’t wait to photograph you again!
