because a house is a good start to home | Mobile AL family photographer

At the end of 2016, when our family was preparing for our move to Mobile, we were, let's say, a little overwhelmed by all that needed to happen in preparation. We hadn't moved in over 11 years, and we'd never moved with kids before.

So there were details that needed to be worked out, like the fact that we needed a place to live. I had never been to Mobile before our interview process began. So I was really relying on having an amazing realtor to guide us in the right direction. We were hoping not to have to move twice if we could make that happen. But obviously you don't want to rush buying the wrong place either!

Enter the mama of this precious family!! Her name is Katie Crane {She's with Roberts Brothers here in Mobile--please call her if you're buying or selling!!} She was so accommodating to our very tight schedule, including a very last-minute phone call from me on a Sunday afternoon. The hubby and I had decided that I would drive the 6 hours to Mobile the next day to find a house. By myself. That's love and trust, people.

Katie made it happen to meet with me that Monday afternoon. She had several properties to show me, but mostly she'd been working behind the scenes on a certain house that wasn't even on the market that we felt like might be right for our family. And it was! 

We saw the houses and then returned to the "winning" house, where I Facetimed my husband to give him a virtual tour. He loved it, and we made an offer! And we've been loving our new home for the last 12 months!

So, to get the chance to photograph Katie and her family (including her completely adorable twins!!) was really special. If you work with her, you'll experience that she loves her job, but when I worked with her on MY job, I got to capture how much she loves her family. And how much they love her right back!

So I'd say we made a pretty great trade. She helped me find the perfect home to continue loving my family in, and I helped her capture in photographs the perfect love and laughter of her own family. There's no place like home, and there's no love like family. 

I'd love to help you tell your family's love story. Contact me to book your session!
