  • Families in the Fall // Alabama

  • My new friend, Daniella, and I have been talking about this shoot for almost a year! She found me on Instagram last year while searching #housonphotographer hashtags. Although I didn't make it to Houston in time to do her fall photos last year, she was so sweet and invited me over for Thanksgiving d[...]

  • Beach Portraits in Gulf Shores, Al

  • When you vacation on Alabama's beautiful coast (Yes, Alabama has beaches -- great ones, in fact!) I hope you book a beach portrait session for your family.

  • Senior Portrait Photographer

  • Hi people. It's me, April. I've had the privilege of photographing a few seniors this year and I've forgotten how much I enjoy those kiddos. Mostly, I shoot in the Gulf Shores, Orange Beach area. I also shoot on the Eastern Shore (Fairhope, Daphne, Spanish Fort) as well as Mobile and Dauphin Island.[...]

  • Beach Portraits in Gulf Shores

  • Summer is pretty much here, guys! This Gulf Shores shoot was the perfect start to our beach sessions. Sometimes, we take for granted that we live so close to the beach.

  • wedding on the bluff // fairhope al

  • Things don't always go exactly as planned on wedding days. Out of all the things that could possibly go wrong, I'd imagine that feeling sick when you are the bride is one of the worst. Poor Charity ate something that made her sick on the day of her wedding. With the help of her close friends and fam[...]

  • Seabrook Washington

  • Finding a place to stay on the Coast of Washington can be a little tricky for someone traveling there for the first time. When Trish and I booked a wedding in Seattle, we were determined to make the most of our trip. I honeymooned in Seattle in 2013 and completely fell in love with what was OUTSIDE [...]
  • Changes for So Life...

  • Most of you know that Trisha will be moving to Houston this November. Jayden, her youngest son, has been living there with his dad for a couple years now. Hunter, her oldest son, decided to move there this fall to start his high school basketball career. Trisha felt that tug... that little voice you[...]
  • Destination Wedding in Fairhope Alabama

  • How is it that a Newfoundlander meets a Southern Alabama girl in New Orleans? She was at Cosmetology school. He was attending a National Geographic event.
