Saying I was thrilled when Kilton’s mommy told me she was pregnant would be an understatement. Not only had I had the pleasure of photographing their family before, it was even more exciting because she wasn’t even showing yet. Kilton’s mommy KNEW that I was the Pensacola newborn photographer she wanted to take his newborn portraits and she wanted to make SURE she got on my calendar ASAP.
When I arrived at their lovely home, I was greeted as a friend. And O.M.G that home was immaculate. How did their house look so lovely after JUST having a baby AND having a toddler? Little man was super sleepy when I got there so I quickly got set up for his portraits.
After a diaper change and feeding, we moved into the lifestyle, family portrait part of their session
I may have lived in South Alabama and Florida for the past 11 years, but I was North Alabama born and raised. I’m lucky enough to get to go “home” to visit a few times each year and this past weekend I was lucky enough that all 5 of us were able to go together!
Having a VERY active toddler boy means always having to come up with a good, exhausting outdoor activity for our family. This works out well since we all love exploring the great outdoors. When I told my dad I was trying to decide where we should go Saturday, he told me there were some new hiking trails near Hampton Cove. I looked it up and we decided to load up and go check out the Goldsmith Schiffman Wildlife Sanctuary. Definitely the BEST decision I could have made!
We took the Hidden Springs trail and were rewarded fields upon fields of beautiful, yellow Canola flowers, secluded ponds, ducks, and 1 baby snake. It was absolutely stunning! And not only that, it was an easy walk for all 3 kids – 2 year old included!
So, if you’re ever in the Hunstville area, go check out the Goldsmith Schiffman Wildlife Sanctuary and Hays Nature Preserve. You won’t regret it!
