Styled Shoot | Swann Lake Stables Birmingham, Alabama

Deborah Michelle Photography Birmingham Alabama Wedding Photographer Swann Lakes Stables

From the moment Hannah texted me to the moment I was standing in a creek, I absolutely loved every second spent being a part of this Birmingham, Alabama styled shoot.

I met Hannah while speaking to a photography class at the University of Mobile. She wanted to shadow me at any weddings I had coming up that season to which I gladly replied, YES! I got my “start” second shooting for someone in Mobile, Alabama, so why would I not return the favor?! Hannah actually helped me with the wedding where I ended up meeting my husband! I remember giggling with her about how cute the brother of the bride was.

Since that wedding day, I have watched Hannah develop her passion of photography. She absolutely loves documenting people’s stories & it shows in everything she produces. Seriously follow her @tharpvisuals!

One of Hannah’s business goals for this year was to create & execute a styled shoot. And she put together a really awesome crew of vendors that I loved connecting with too. Okay enough chit-chat…let these photos speak for themselves about how stunning this Swann Lake Stables styled shoot was.

ACCESS Magazine | 2017 Swim & Fitness Special

If you know me, you know I love the beach. So anytime "work" allows me to have sand between my toes, I kick off my shoes & leap towards the seashore! This session was no exception.

Hayley Hill is the editor of a local style magazine, ACCESS. She emailed saying she loved my work & wanted ME to be a part of their upcoming swimsuit & fitness. Eeeek!!! Getting to know Hayley & her staff was so much fun & spending the afternoon at the beach was pretty wonderful too! Here's the final product & page layouts. Enjoy!

This was my first ever editorial shoot & let me just tell you - it takes a team. Here's a few behind the scenes shots!
