Kate and Lucas’s engagement portrait session was a LONG TIME in the making! It seemed like every time we planned a date for their portrait session in Birmingham, something continued to come up. The pandemic, a mask ordinance, and so many other world events just kept working against our plans, but we were FINALLY able […]

When I graduated high school in 2016, I graduated with a class that had TWO sets of twins! We were always told how unique it was for us to have not one but two sets of twins in our class. This year, I am feeling those ‘unique’ vibes again as I have photographed my first […]

I constantly use Jackson’s senior portrait session as a guide to inspire my senior guys’ wardrobes! That being said, I thought his portrait session would make a great addition to my ‘Out of the Archives’ series. I’ve mentioned it on socials before, but if you are new to Olivia B. Photography, you may not know […]

I have been absolutely loving my senior portrait sessions in Downtown Decatur, AL lately! But, with such beautiful blooming flowers at the Delano Park Rose Garden, who could blame me?

The last time I shot portraits for Kate, she had to have only been in the 8th or 9th grade at the most! I had met her, her sister, and her mom for family portraits when I first started shooting as ‘Olivia B. Photography’. Even then, I thought they were the most photogenic family! I […]

Do you ever meet someone and instantly want to be best friends with them? That is exactly how I felt about Victoria when we first sat down with each other at Starbucks to begin planning for her wedding this November. We knew so many of the same people– and her house is only 10 minutes […]

Elizabeth and Asa’s engagement session from 2018 is still one of my absolute favorite sessions– so of course I had to pull it into my “Out of the Archives” series on my blog! I met Asa and Elizabeth at a southern home in Lynchburg, Tennessee for their portraits, and we had the greatest time together! […]

The first thing I really learned about Kindyl & Micah as a couple was that they were nothing short of EPIC. Their Instagrams were full of images of their various adventures and their obvious love of the outdoors! As I began talking with Kindyl about their wedding day plans, she shared that they would be […]

Since I began classes at The University of Alabama as a freshman in the fall of 2016, I have been able to work with so many amazing and successful graduates of The Capstone each year! I look forward to #gradszn all semester long, and love getting out on campus as the leaves begin to change […]

When Emily reached out to me to plan her senior portrait session this spring, we were just at the cusp of COVID-19. Her senior portrait session was just one of many events to be rescheduled due to the outbreak of the virus! We had to delay the planning of her session until a few months […]
