As you know we’re moving to Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri this summer! And sooner than that, we’re expecting baby boy quattro by the end of April. So maybe you’ve already guessed – I am no longer booking sessions for the remaining time in Alabama.

THANK YOU for trusting me with your memories!!

…And here’s a preview of the Spring Super Minis with the BUNNY! Can I just say this bunny was 1. super awesome, and 2. a total hit. I might do this again next year.  Even our toughest critics were delighted with her as long as she was in the bucket! And, we attracted a large bird of prey.

Please share your photos with friends and family, but please do not crop out the logo.

It’s here! The Spring Super minis are set for March 29 at Birmingham Botanical Gardens! I am so excited to have such a pretty location! Check out what will be in bloom in March. Daffodils, tulips, forsythia, native azaleas, dogwoods, and more! These will be bright and colorful. Super Minis happen only twice a year and include 20 minute session, gallery of 10-20 images, and 3 digital downloads with printing rights. This is perfect for updating a family photo, baby portraits, a few maternity shots, head shots, seniors or just about anything else like Mommy & me, Daddy & me, and four generations pics. Also a great birthday present for your wifey :) .

Oh, and Happy Valentine’s Day!

Spring Super Mini Session | Alison Bell Birmingham Family & Child Photography

I recently teamed up with Helena’s MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) to raise money for their organization by raffling off a FREE session! We had a booth at December’s First Friday in Old Town to sell tickets and promote the group. A huge THANK YOU to everyone who bought a ticket and made the fundraiser successful. That includes our husbands that kept kids while we froze outside! Between the photo session and the autographed football, it was definitely a success!

At the very last minute I pulled together a Christmas Photo Booth. This was my first time doing a photo booth. Pitch black darkness is not the ideal lighting scenario but  it went very well! Thanks to pinterest we had lots of props to make make our photos extra merry! My personal favorites were the elf hats and ‘fa lalalala.’  Make sure you check out the awesome mom that played Rudolph for her Santa!

:: The gallery will be emailed out directly to those who participated in the photo booth.  From the gallery you will be able to download your photo large enough for a 5×7 print or smaller.  If you do not receive that email, first check your spam then contact me.

UPDATE: FIRST FRIDAY IS RESCHEDULE TO FRIDAY DEC 13 6-9P

I 100% believe mothers and mothering (or parenting) can change the world. And it takes a village.  MOPS’ (Mothers of Pre-Schoolers) slogan is Better Moms Make A Better World. Maybe its a little one-sided, but I don’t think so.

Mothering the little years is intense. Moms need camaraderie, swapping battle stories, mom time, and frequent washing in the Gospel. Which is why MOPS International exists. First Baptist Church in Helena started a new MOPS group just last year that I joined a few months ago.  If you’re looking for mom time (with childcare!!) look for the group on facebook.

All that to say, I am giving away a mini session in support of Helena MOPS! Entries are $5 each, can be used immediately before Christmas or up until March 1.  It includes a 30 minute session, gallery of 20-30 images, 5 digital downloads of your choice (with the option to purchase more), and a print release for your downloads. Drawing will be December 6   Rescheduled to Dec 13 at 9p at the end of First Friday in Old Town Helena.
