Until we meet again <3

Seeing 2017 go so soon.

We’re going to close this year with all the sessions neglected on the blog. We were able to fulfill some of last years hopes and dreams (booking a solid summer, traveling ect.) but we didn’t get any better with blog upkeep. Don’t fret though, it’s in the works.

We are forever grateful for those that have followed our journey, encouraging words are some that stick with you for life. & a huge thank you to the wonderful friends we met and photographed this year. Seeing so many faces in front of my lens brings so much joy to my heart. Like, I love y’all for real. I love hearing your love stories, your triumphs, your good news, I love being able to give you moments that you’ll look back on in 10-15 years and smile over. It brings me the purest type of satisfaction to see so many people in love or growing families, joining families, remembering families & to be able to put your personalities into one little photograph. Y’all are the real MVP’s!

Have plans for 2018?

This year I will be back at it when the weather warms up. But, with my family. I plan to fill weekends with your beautiful faces but I intend to photograph my kids, boyfriend & family more than I ever have before. A promise to pick up my camera daily and photograph the tiny little moments that usually only I see. Because kids aren’t kids for long. I plan to continue to travel. And I hope to expand into food photography wildly this new year!

So, let’s look back at Southern Cotton’s 2017!

Double J Farms-Northern Alabama Summer Vows

Jeremy Proposed!

“He made the 7hr drive home from work for Thanksgiving and picked me up. When we got back to my house he had my brother distract me while he set everything up for the proposal. He had taken wooden boards and drilled holes in them for Christmas lights that spelled out “Will You Marry Me?” and he brought me out blindfolded and then asked. It was so sweet. I said yes, of course, and then we went out to a nice dinner.”

Amber & Jeremy went on to be married. It was a beautiful summer day. Amber glowed from beginning to end, truly! Amber is also a very talented bride, as she and her bridesmaids put together most of the center pieces and decorations for the reception! They decided to be married at Double J Farms, here in Northern Alabama. And what a beautiful place! I could not have asked for a more stunningly sweet little bride for the day!

Amber & Jeremy, I wish you both a lifetime of bliss! I pray that you’ll continue to console and love each other like I saw you do that day. You are both so perfect for each other! And I can NOT wait to have y’all in front of my lens again! xoxo
