I’ve been photographing this family since Samuel was a newborn – and he’s always just the happiest little guy! His 18 month mini session turned into a full family session and thank goodness it did. This has to be one of my favorite family sessions – everything was just perfect. The lighting, gorgeous warm sunset….the location, an awesome farm with plenty of gorgeous horses on top of the mountain in Springville, and of course this amazing family. I’m so happy everything came together and we got some really great memories captured!!
I LOVE Carter’s session – the browns and blues just flow together so well – and his parents are absolutely smitten with him, you can so tell by their photos with him. He has the cutest lips and chunky little arms too! It was hard to pick just a couple favorites from this session – but I tried to narrow it down! Here they are: Hope you enjoyed these!! -Lane Weichman www.facebook.com/laneweichmanphotography Springville AL photographer
Beckee is one of my cloesest friends – she’s one of those friends that you just know God put in your life for a reason! She keeps me sane most days, keeps me laughing hysterically (anyone that knows Beckee probably agrees with this) and I know anytime I need anything prayed for, I can come to her and ask and she’ll do it! So basically, I adore this girl, and of course, her family. Her oldest daughter is a couple months older than Lucy, my middle, and Caroline just turned 1. I just can’t believe how fast the last year has gone! I’m sharing a few more than I usually do, but I just had to. Check out some favorites of mine: -Lane www.laneweichmanphotography.com family photographer birmingham, al
Holden was such a doll! I really enjoyed photographing him and getting to met his family! I even got a couple of shots of his GORGEOUS sister! She has the most beautiful eyes and I just had to get some! I got way more photos than usual and his session, even with family shots, went by so quickly! Here are a few of my favs…it was very hard to decide! 😉 Lane Weichmanwww.laneweichmanphotography.com Photographer Springville AL
As expecting parents, we have so many ideas in our heads about what parenting is going to be like. I would say 100% of all parents realize that these ideas are not accurate AT ALL once we actually become parents. With my oldest, I told myself she would only eat homemade organic baby food…she hated it! 😉 I told myself that my middle daughter would be a great sleeper – after her 4m sleep regression, she didn’t sleep through the night until she was 18 months. With my third, I thought I had it all figured out, she is now on a daily dose on antibiotics to prevent recurring bladder infections and has been to children’s hospital more times than I’ve been before as 7 years as a parent! I say all of this to say – after photographing more than 50 newborns, I still get ideas in my head…and when a parent tells me they really want a specific shot, I work really hard to get that shot…however, ultimately, the one in control is the baby! Jackson’s mom had two shots that she really wanted. I tried the first one 3 or 4 times, and it wasn’t happening, and the second one we spent probably 30 minutes working on it, and it didn’t happen either. Most photographers I know are extremely OCD and are perfectionists! I am one of them. I beat myself up over photography more than I do than anything else! It took me the rest of the day to recover from …
I have known Breanne for such a long time, and she came to me months ago and wanted to book a session..I was so excited! Her daughter is absolutely adorable and I knew her newest would be, too! Of course, he’s absolutely precious and did so great for pictures! I just love the warm tones that she chose for their photos, and the colors, and his adorable little mohawk, of course! It’s always so hard to choose just a few to share so I may sometimes share more…and today I did! Here are just a few highlights from Corbin’s newborn session Lane Weichman www.laneweichmanphotography.com Newborn photography birmingham al
Harper’s mom booked with me super early and we have been looking forward to her session for awhile now! She came a little bit early but was a trooper and hardly spent any time in the NICU, and is gaining weight like a champ! She is probably one of the tiniest newborns I’ve photographed, and I told Lauren, her mom, she may not sleep that great because of her size, but she surprised me, and slept THE WHOLE TIME! It was really hard to pick just a few favorites – I know I say that a lot, but I really feel close to my clients and love being able to select photos and hand touch each and every one to present them to their parents. That being said, here are a few: Lane Birmingham AL newborn photographer www.laneweichmanphotography.com
Finn’s mom came to me with a pretty neat idea in mind…she wanted a very simple set up for his cake smash with just one big balloon. I LOVED the idea and we went with it! I’m so happy with how these turned out! It was so much fun, and they have these neat timeless pictures to have forever! Here are a few of my favorites:
I photographed Copper when he was a newborn! His mamma actually won my giveaway for a newborn session. He was a challenge for sure, but somehow we managed to get some great pics! Then, we got some fall family photos with he was 4 months old…and then they came back when he turned a year! They were super easy going when I was having one of those days (for those of you with three kids..you know, one of THOSE days!) and we got an adorable cake smash, then we did a family shoot, with a couple add-ons too! I just love these photos. The colors they picked, the location, it all turned out great! They were troopers! It was SO hot, too! It was hard to pick just a few favorites to share, but here they are!
I first photographed Scarlett in January, when she was a newborn, and I am so glad her parents asked me to photograph her 6 month milestone as well! She is just as precious as they come and super smiley. Looking forward to seeing her around her first birthday, too! Lane Weichman www.laneweichmanphotography.com Springville AL baby photographer
Ashley inquired months before her due date, and I was so excited at the idea of photographing her identical twin boys! They were both born at 5 lbs at 35 weeks! Since Jeremy and Ashley are my neighbors (we didn’t find this out until later…haha!) we decided to break the shoot into two sessions. I did a few bean bag and prop shots the first day, when they were two weeks old, then a few days later, with an assistant (thank you Lindsey Walker!) we did the more complicated poses. They did SO great and were so much fun to photograph. They were by far the most grunty and noisy babies I’ve had…umm it was so cute! I’m sure it may not be super cute at 4AM but it was adorable to me! 😉 Here are some highlights from our session…enjoy these!
I got to photograph Henry when his mom was still pregnant, his birth, newborn photos, 4 month photos and now 8 month photos and we’re already looking forward to his 1 year session! He is SO super precious and his sweet parents are fabulous! His session is one of those I look forward to for months before it happens. I’m already planning ideas in my head for his cake smash and the theme that his mom picked out. We decided to go to the Birmingham Botanical Gardens for his photos, and I am SO glad we did! For whatever reason, it was completely dead and hardly anyone was there! We had the whole place to ourselves, it seemed! He wasn’t very fond of the grass but once we put him on a pathway (almost scaring his mom to death!) he did great! We made sure Dad was super close by in case he fell, which he didn’t! Here are a few favorites from his session, wish I could share them all! Birmingham AL baby photography Lane Weichman Photography www.laneweichmanphotography.com
I last saw Luke 6 months ago during Thanksgiving/Christmas time and he has grown SO much!! I loved seeing him again and absolutely love babies in overalls (it is one of my favorite things, EVER!) He was very shy and not fond of me or my camera at the beginning, so we let mom take a few photos with him too and I guess once he saw that Mom was doing it, too, we got some smiles..yay! A few highlights below: -Lane www.laneweichmanphotography.com Birmingham AL baby photography
I had a great time photographing Corinn! She was an absolute doll and super smiley the whole time! I don’t think I’ve ever done a 1 year old session with a cake smash so quickly, she was just so great! I love her color scheme for the photos and her cute faces just make it even more precious! -Lanewww.laneweichmanphotography.com Springville AL cake smash photographer
My husband, who is my biggest advocate, had an appointment for his eyes and wouldn’t you know, his eye doc was pregnant?! He told her I was a newborn photographer, and she emailed me and booked! I had so much fun photographing her sweet bundle Sawyer and I absolutely love his hair! Here are some highlights from their session:

I just realized I am A MONTH behind on blog posts! I really wanted to share Brett’s session because he is absolutely adorable and I loved his session! He was great at the beginning but ended up getting pretty gassy, so the last half of his session took awhile. I always say that I can deal with any kind of baby except a gassy baby! 🙁 Anyways, here are a few of my favorite of his photos: springville al newborn photography -Lane Weichman www.laneweichmanphotography.com
Addison was an absolute dream baby!! She was like putty in my hands, let me pose her in all my favorite poses. She may have put up a little fight at first but was out after a bit and was great. Here are a few of my favorites: -Lane www.laneweichmanphotography.com Springville Al newborn photographer
I photographed Will a year ago for his newborn session. He has grown so so much in the last year! I can’t believe how fast it has gone…I’m sure his mom feels the same way, too! We had so much fun during his session then his cake smash…oh my goodness, he was SO SO cute and loved the cake! I had a great time. 🙂 Enjoy the pics! -Lane www.laneweichmanphotography.com Springville, AL baby photography
Charleigh is an absolute DOLL! She was way over pictures about halfway through but we talked her into more by acting ridiculous and getting her to laugh. We originally had this session scheduled when I was 38 weeks but she got sick and we had to reschedule for this past week, at 39 weeks pregnant! PHEW! Getting up and down was NOT easy! I needed the exercise though and so enjoyed meeting this girl and her sweet parents. I am very thankful this little one of mine decided to hold out until I could do the session and get her pictures edited for mom and dad. Here are just a few of my favorites from her sweet 1 year old studio session: -Lane www.laneweichmanphotography.com Birmingham AL family photographer
Blake was not feeling his 6 month old session the first time around, so I got to see him TWICE! He was way happier the 2nd time! These are pictures from both of our little sessions. Those eyelashes of his are insane! SO so cute. He looks like the cutest little man! Here are a few of his pics: -Lane Birmingham AL baby photographer www.laneweichmanphotography.com
I’m not going to lie. I was a little nervous about my session with Hannah. Her mom contacted me and told me she was due March 3rd, and I’m due March 26th with baby #3, so I was super scared about taking newborn photos so pregnant. Well, little Miss Hannah was PERFECT. I honestly haven’t had a newborn this easy in a long, long time. She came in and mom said she was hungry, but when we got her out of the carseat and undressed she passed out so I decided to try to get a pose or two before she woke up hungry…well, I got the whole mini session done with 4 extra poses in an hour! She fell into the poses like a pro. It was AWESOME! Here’s a few of my favorites from her session: -Lane www.laneweichmanphotography.com Birmingham AL newborn mini session
Emerson definitely made me work for these photos….she spent the first hour not settling down, and my 8.5 month pregnant belly wasn’t even able to wrap her up good and tight. She finally settled down and we got some great blanket shots…I am so happy with how these photos turned out! She’s absolutely beautiful and I love her dainty accessories and the neutral layout. We got a pic with Daddy in his fireman’s uniform, too. Here are a few of my favorites: -Lane Birmingham AL mini newborn session www.laneweichmanphotography.com
Khloe started out being spunky, but then she settled in and didn’t make a peep!! She was an absolute doll for her newborn mini session. I even threw in an few extra set ups because she was SO good and I just couldn’t help myself!! I LOVE that I’ve had so many girls this year! I’ve already photographed 6 newborns this year, and have three more before our own newborn comes! Just a huge blessing to be able to do what I’m doing…seriously!! I attached a few of my favorites from this gorgeous girl’s sweet session. -Lane www.laneweichmanphotography.com Birmingham AL newborn photos
These four are so sweet and were so good! It was a super windy day and they are did SO great! They didn’t complain about having to take pictures on a cold windy day. We planned to go downtown and shoot and I found a neat alley and we decided to shoot there to start out. I love how the photos turned out! Then we went downtown to Railroad Park and snapped a few more before we called it quits. Enjoy the photos! – Lane www.laneweichmanphotography.com Birmingham AL family photography
Miss Scarlett Reese came to the studio for a mini session last week. Can I just comment on how absolutely gorgeous and perfect she is? Look at her!! I love these sweet soft girly colors on her, too! She did great, too and I enjoyed hanging out with her parents while photographing her session. I seriously love my job, I finished editing the photos the same day! You would think after two years as a photographer, I would get tired of editing, but I don’t! I love watching pictures come to life and seeing a full and complete gallery at the end. Here are a few of the photos from our mini session: – Lane www.laneweichmanphotography.com http://www.laneweichmanphotography.com/portfolio/newborns/ Birmingham AL newborn photography
George came in for a newborn mini session this week. He was SUCH a great baby, and adorable, too! He was 2 weeks old when he came in, and slept like a dream…only woke up once to snack! 🙂 I love getting good dream babies like him! Of course, the hard ones are challenging which is what makes my job so interesting and fun, but he was a nice refreshing break. Here are a few of my favorites! -Lane www.laneweichmanphotography.com Newborn Photography Birmingham AL
This sweet family said they were open to shooting anywhere, so I had fun picking some different and unique places I have never shot before! It was so cold, so we split the shoot up by shooting in a loft downtown in between the two outdoor locations. I think we spent more time driving around downtown than we spent actually shooting! Hank was SO adorable and did such a great job being happy and smiley the whole time! He is just absolutely adorable! I had so much fun with this shoot and look forward to doing more family sessions downtown Birmingham in unique places like this! It makes shooting sessions in the winter FUN! Here are a few of my favorites below (and yes, it’s more than my usual amount but we got such a variety I had to share a ton!) 😉 -Lane www.laneweichmanphotography.com http://www.laneweichmanphotography.com/2015/01/tessinfamily/ Birmingham AL family photographer
I hosted a giveaway for a free newborn session at the end of the year and Silas was the winner! Little did I know, he had come a few days before I ended the giveaway, so, I got to bring him into the studio quickly! He was so adorable and chunky, but boy, did he not want to be touched at all!! We still managed to get a full session from him, though! Here are a few of my favorites: Lane Weichman www.laneweichmanphotography.com Birmingham AL newborn photography
I can’t believe this sweet girl is already ONE! It feels like a month ago I was taking her newborn photos! I just can’t believe it! She was such a ball of life and had so much fun running around on the backdrops! 😉 Here are a few of my favorites.
