beautiful emergency | huntsville children’s photographer

I received a frantic phone call from the mom of this new kindergartner early last week. When her introduction included the words “I’m having a photography emergency!” I knew I was going to like her. Any mom who feels so passionate about photography as to have an emergency regarding it is an instant hit with me. She went on to tell me that they had just moved to town and on her daughter’s first day of kindergarten she found not one but TWO loose teeth in her mouth. It had been over a year since she’d had portraits done and those teeth weren’t going to wait much longer. So I hope my long time clients who call months in advance will forgive me when I tell you that I booked her for three days later. How could I not? As if your baby starting kindergarten isn’t enough to send any mama into a tizzy the loose teeth would certainly do the trick!

So last Thursday we pranced around downtown in my new friend’s beautifully hand-sewn heirloom gown.

And as gorgeous and elegant as she looked in her frock, underneath was one of the most inquisitive little budding scientists I’ve ever met. She told me all about her favorite dinosaur (stegosaurus), her new horse (Black Beauty) and she even caught me a roly poly and a spider. She was a fabulously fiesty girl. And believe me, it takes one to know one.


I couldn’t resist the urge to convert this one to black and white…

Oh to have these curls. My life would be complete.


I guess all that’s left to say is, honey, you were one beautiful emergency. Thanks for obliging your mama and I with a shot of those pearly (baby) whites.


Now starting wiggling those bad boys and earn yourself some cold hard cash!

Leslie As the mama with the photographic emergency, I have to say alls well that ends well!!! Erin they are beautiful!! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Danielle I love it! I did the same thing when my daughter had her first loose tooth. It was time for family portraits and I called and booked the next appointment so everyone would have all their teeth in the picture. My daughter didn’t loose her tooth for another month or two, but I’m glad we had our pictures done when we did!
