Addison | Tea Party Portrait Session Downtown Tuscaloosa

Addison First Birthday Tuscaloosa Alabama Family Photographer

Addison celebrated her first birthday as any little girl should - with a tea party. She rolled into a park nestled in Downtown Tuscaloosa in a carriage. Yep, you read that right. This princess arrived in her own carriage that once belonged to her mother & grandmother.

This girl is full of personality which comes as no surprise if you know her daddy, Joseph. And she’s got her momma, Meg, to thank for the the prettiest eyes & smile. From engagement portraits to wedding day to awaiting baby to smashing cake with their sweet baby girl, I consider it a treat to watch this family grow over the years.

Happy First Year, Addison! Thanks for letting me come to your Tea Party - it ‘twas delightful.

You know there’s a Southern momma involved with all the monograms - cute little bloomers included! Peep those sweet chunky thighs, too!

It should also be noted that Meg made this cake & wanted to incorporate her grandmother’s china into Addison’s birthday celebration. Love all the family touches in this portrait session. Now let’s eat cake, shall we?!

We just had to get in a few mother/daughter portraits too! Meg, thank you for allowing me to love your family as it grows. I love watching you & Joseph parent Addison well. Ya’ll are rock stars. And well Addison is so stinking adorable of course!

Parr Family | Spring Mini Session

Believe it or not, I once cheered alongside Ashley in high school - many moons ago. And now I get the chance to watch her in another role - that being mommy to a sweet baby boy. It's also been fun to watch Johnny transition into the title of husband/dad, too.

*Tip when photographing a two year old have the following things on standby:

  • Bubbles
  • A Football
  • And a Random Puppy

Normally I try to grab a photo of just the parents...this time we had someone creating the geninue laughter.


Holden definitely kept us on our toes as any two year old would. Cheers to year TWO!
