The Rothrocks and Their Baby Boy on Morris Avenue

The Rothrocks love the city of Birmingham, as much or MAYBE more than my family does? ;) Though, they've lived here longer so they've had a headstart. We decided to go with a classic oh-so-Birmingham location, as a result: Morris Avenue in downtown Birmingham for their family and baby portrait session. We had so much fun together even though it was quite chilly and a bit windy out. The cloudy weather treated us well, and even the youngest member of our group was in pretty good spirits ;)

This sweet family is so full of love, laughter and fun that I knew we'd have a great time together. Yet when we arrived, Baby would hardly look at me - when usually he is quick to smile and charm. He was definitely feeling camera shy, but with mama's help and with my occasional surprise peekaboo over the camera to make him smile or laugh, I did manage to capture some of his radiant personality - and not just his melt-you-to-the-core smiles! This precious baby boy and his wonderful parents all have such joyful personalities, which I hope you can see that clearly in each image. Thanks for the honor of photographing your family, Rothrocks!

Oh and I had to include some images of them laughing together, because it is SO "them". This couple has such a great sense of humor and their joy and laughter is infectious; and I also made sure to steal a few portraits of them individually, too ;) It's easy to focus on baby, but everyone deserves the love and attention. :) Hope y'all enjoy!

Then our mouth was filled with laughter,
and our tongue with shouts of joy;
then they said among the nations,
“The Lord has done great things for them.
— Psalm 126:2
