Scottsboro & Huntsville AL Fine Art Portrait Photographer - "With Brave Wings She Flies"

Meet Jan: a brave, beautiful woman with a heart for God and for people.  Jan lost her husband a little over a year ago, and as with any loss, the grieving process has been an uphill climb.  But climb she does, and with such strength, reaching out as she does to other widows and souls experiencing unimaginable pain.

Jan requested a celebratory photography session for herself and for her daughter, Maria -- and I was so pleased she came to me.  The lighting was beautiful, the two women were gorgeous, and the Autumn air couldn't have been more perfect, there at the overlook in Section, Alabama.  Mother and daughter talked to me of heart things, shared their ups and downs, and enjoyed the discovery of common interests (traveling to Ireland and India -- and Doctor Who).  In between clicks of my shutter, we spoke of books, of faith, and I believe cake was also mentioned.  I know I had a lovely time photographing these two stunning ladies, and I couldn't be more pleased with the end result:  fine art portraiture highlighting love, light, and a feminine spirit.

Maria's ink is the loveliest thing:  a sweet message in her dad's handwriting.

The love they share was so apparent.  Jan is obviously an amazing mother -- and Maria is a pretty terrific daughter.

Isn't Jan's watercolor tattoo the most gorgeous thing?
