Another cute baby for you to ohhhh and ahhhh over.... I love this family, they are just fun to be around - and that includes Thane, he is a doll! He was so sweet and easy to be around. This one is going to be a heartbreaker when he gets older.... :)

so sweet.... looks like he is praying

love that half-smile.... he's up to something

had to do a Mississippi State one.... go dawgs!

How much does he look like he is loving this?!

oh, wait a minute.... talk to the hand, dad

mom is whispering in his ear.... sweet

I love this set....

such a pretty family

If it were me, I would get this on a huge canvas - so gorgeous

and my favorite of the day.... gotta love it!

I dont know about you guys, but July has been a whirlwind for me.... I cant believe August is almost here... I still have a few dates left in August, and September is almost booked up.... it wont be long before the weather turns cool and the leaves start turning.... crazy.... As always, I love hearing from you, so leave me some comment love or feel free to email me any time at talleyimages@yahoo.com

An Opportunity

So here I am to offer you a one-time opportunity to get the pics that youve seen and always wanted, but never knew just how to get them....

Beach pictures!

I have (2) one-hour sessions open.... September 29, and September 30th..... in Gulf Shores....

Some of the most popular options are:

- A family session.... These are the ones where everyone wears white and khaki and are just classic pictures that will stand the test of time.... These are the pictures that when you go to someone's house and you see a huge canvas of their kids - its one of these.... now here is your opportunity to have some done

- A Trash the Dress session... I actually prefer to call these "Rock the Dress" sessions b/c we dont actually "trash" the dress.... So what exactly is it? This is where a girl will put on her wedding dress and we will take pictures - not worrying about the dress and if the hem is getting wet or dirty.... this also makes a great couple session.... These are the pictures you see with the couple laying in the sand as the surf washes over them.... These are high fashion pictures and turn out great, if you really rock it..... You have 2 options for your wedding gown.... you can put it in storage and never look at it again and let it waste away in the closet, or you can take it out and get some gorgeous pictures - remembering how awesome you looked and felt in it..... most dresses only require a simple dry-cleaning and are good as new anyway.... so c'mon, why not try it?
here is an example of a Trash the Dress session at the beach - these were taken by Tabitha at Ultimate Image Photos in Orlando, Fl.... if you are down there, you should definitely call her up

- An engagement/couple session.... These are the pictures of the couple, dressed in every day wear, holding hands and walking down the beach into the sunset.... very sweet and romantic.... this is a great way to capture that look of love that you will not want to lose....

These are just a few of the ideas that are out there.... if you have something else in mind, then Id love to hear it..... and because it will be September, we wont have the blazing hot heat to deal with.... and even better, the beach will pretty much be deserted which means we dont have to worry about people getting in the shot or being nosy and watching us take pictures....

Each session will be one hour and can be done in the morning or around sunset, your choice.... the session will be $150 (plus tax), and you will receive a cd of your proofs, editing of the proofs, a print release and also an 11x14 of your choice

This is on a first-come, first-serve basis.... And it will be the only time I do this for the rest of the year (unless you are willing to foot the bill for gas and a room, then sure Ill do it again!), so dont take too long to sign up if this is something you'd like to get in on....

I look forward to hearing from you!


This little boy was so great to work with... he just sat and smiled and let us move him around.... He has the most amazing blue eyes Ive ever seen. And its no wonder he is so adorable - his parents are some of the sweetest, most beautiful people I know.... It was such a joy to be able to do these - thank you Gillis family!

How cute is he?!!

A special request by his mother, to really capture how blue his eyes are - this has not been photo-shopped other than to change the rest of the pic to black and white - his eyes are really that blue!

Couldnt you just eat him up?

I just think this would be perfect hanging in an office somewhere

Sweet capture of Rowe and dad

I love all the green and the water in the background

He even sat up for his first time - and I got the honor of capturing it for his parents

Both Rowe and dad laughing.... love it!

Cant leave mom out.... such a gorgeous family

Mom's favorite of the day!

Got to end the post with some sweet little feet....

July is pretty full, and I am now booking for August..... Also a big opportunity is upcoming for a few lucky people.... stay tuned to find out what it is.... I love to hear your comments and read your emails... talleyimages@yahoo.com

*I will be out of town all this weekend, so if I dont get back to you during that time, thats why, but I will answer all emails as soon as I get back.... thanks for being patient, love you guys*

The Bardwell Family

This was another family that was just amazing to be around. We took pictures on their land and everywhere you looked it was just spectacular with so many beautiful backdrops. This was such a fun family to be around - often they were laughing in between shots. Thank you guys so much for letting spend some time with you guys and capture some great memories!

I love the "American Gothic" look of this one...

Caught in between shots....


They have a pond by their house... so nice....

They are all so gorgeous....

I love how comfortable they are with each other

My favorite of the day!

I love to hear from all of you, so feel free to write me at talleyimages@yahoo.com or leave comments and let me know what you think....
