Don't you just love the journey of life and the pieces that make up that journey??? From the birth story in the delivery room, to places that bring back cherished memories or provide an escape, and even that posed family photo to document the ages and stages in the life of a family. Welcome to my website. I am a Florence, Alabama (and surrounding Shoals area) birth, landscape, and portrait photographer. Births and landscapes don't quite mesh in a single image so I chose a favorite landscape shot from a recent family hiking adventure for the benefit of those that aren't comfortable with birth photography :) In addition to births and portrait photography, local Shoals landscape images that are previewed here on my website are available for purchase in a shop located in downtown Florence, Alabama called Reclaimed Spirit. Browse the information tab above...my story, my style, pricing, check out the blog where favorites are highlighted, find PBHS on facebook, Instagram, and pinterest. Any questions just message me. Thanks so much for stopping by!! May you have a blessed day.
