Contest Time – Birmingham AL Portrait Photographer

I came across this scripture while surfing the internet this morning. I can’t say I read Hosea very often so it struck me as especially beautiful!

Let us acknowledge the Lord;
let us press on to acknowledge him.
As surely as the sun rises,
he will appear;
he will come to us like the winter rains,
like the spring rains that water the earth. Hosea 6:3

I know that is has been so hot around here that thinking about Fall is hard to do, but it will be here before we know it! School starts in a few weeks and our summer will be memories! I am ready!! I love the Fall it is my FAVORITE time of year! I have been pinning Fall recipes and portrait ideas for weeks just hoping to make the season come faster!

    We would love a family session! These girls are growing too fast and pictures help us treasure these memories. I adored the pics from our last session.

  2. Theresa Williams

    I would love to have a photo session of my granddaughter, Anna Tyler. It has been almost 2.5 years since her last session with you. While I adore the beautiful portrait hanging on my wall…she was 18 months at the time…one of her at the age of 4 would be precious to me. Thank you and I enjoy your beautiful work. God bless.

  3. Andrea Newman

    I am a photographer in Auburn and love your work. I am very rarely in photos with my 3 daughters and I would JUMP at the chance to have you guys “shoot” us! My girls are 18 (college girl!), 15 (high school gal), and 7 (2nd grader!). Thanks for the opportunity!

  4. Haley Leow

    We would love to win a session! Your pictures are so beautiful!

  5. Beth

    Fall is my favorite season, too! I would love to have a fall portrait session of Will and our family. (His school pictures were not so great, even for school pics!) I love your work and treasure the few portraits of us that you have made! I would love to have more! Happy birthday to your precious little miracles, and thanks for the contest!

  6. Brandy Shaw

    In November the Shaw family will celebrate Patton’s THIRD Birthday! That would make for a great session! :)WE love His Hands Photographs!


    I would love to have a photo session of my son, Raymond. He will be 3 years old on the 7th of August and this would be perfect to have his yearly pictures made. I have never had pictures made by you before and would love the opportunity. Thank you!!

  8. Amy Woodard

    I would love to have photographs marking Riley’s second birthday. You took her newborn and one-year photos. I need you to take her two-year-old photos in that beautiful red petticoat!

  9. LeAnna Brown

    I would love to enter you contest! I have a senior that will be going off to college next year, so I would love to have some family portraits done! Fingers crossed…..I love your work!

  10. April Calvert

    I would love to win a photo shoot with my new little family….it’s such a joy to be married, to my best friend and my daughter is growing so fast! You take such beautiful pictures, I would love to have our family captured throught your eyes! 🙂

  11. Cynthia Moss

    My sweet Ethan turns 5 this week and I would love a session for his 5 year old portrait! I love Eli’s 5 year old portrait and definitely need one for Ethan too!

  12. I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the opportunity to be the subjects for His Hands Photography!! You and Cory have an incredibly, amazing, God-given talent that oozes from every picture you both take! OK, maybe oozes isn’t the best choice of adjectives, but you know what I mean. I would love for you to capture my God-ordained boyfriend and I in a fun and zany settings. Perhaps by then, we’ll really have something to celebrate (ie engagement), but if not, it would make an interesting Christmas card for sure. Thanks for all you do. Way to chase after your dreams!!

  13. Drue

    I would love to win a fall session, Jameson is turning one, and we need an updated family picture!!

  14. Casey McDow

    We would love to win a session with you all! My daughter will be 1 years old on Nov. 13 so it would be fantastic to schedule 1 year pictures for her. Your work is beautiful! Thanks!

  15. Thanks to Cynthia Moss for introducing me to another fabulous photographer. With 3 beautiful little girls a photo session is always in order. I have already enjoyed viewing your AMAZING work!!!

  16. Laura Beams

    I would love to win a family session! I have had the kids photographed before, but we have never had a family portrait made! Would love to have one before the kids get bigger so we can remember what it was like when they were little!!!!

  17. Kristia Rumbley

    My husband and I would love to win this contest so that we could have our beautiful son’s pictures taken for his 6 month birthday in September. My birthday is also in August, so what a great birthday present!

  18. LeAnn Sheehan

    I would love to win this contest. My daughter is graduating this year and we want you to take her senior pictures.

  19. Christine Golab

    My best friend Tiffany Hyde introduced me to your website. I was so excited about the fall mini-sessions until I saw the dates corresponded with my brother-in-law’s wedding in Ft. Morgan where my two girls will be flower girls. Totally bummed.
    My reasoning for wanting a session is three-fold. First, my oldest daughter made her First Communion this year, and I want to have a formal portrait done. Second, my youngest daughter stopped me in the hallway the other night to ask why she didn’t have any “big girl” pictures on the wall. Her last was taken at one year and she’s five. Lastly, my husband wanted pictures to celebrate our ten year anniversary, but with the girl’s tuition, professional photographs seemed like a perk, not a need. I’ve been storing money away, bit by bit, so now I just have to wait and see. I also celebrate an August birthday, like your children, so it would be a great Happy Birthday to me. I have some of your work in my house already from Tiffany, but I would love to have some of my own. Thanks for the consideration.

  20. Lisa hyatt

    I would love to win a session with you! I’ve seen your work & love it! We’re unfortunately very financially tight :o( our daughter’s first birthday is this fall & we’d LOVE to celebrate the best year of our lives with a family portrait session for her first birthday! Fall is a beautiful time of year & our little girl has enriched our lives so beautifully, that the fall makes a perfect time to celebrate her & her birthday! <3

  21. Miranda Brown

    I would love a fall session with my grandchildren. All their birthdays are at the end of the year and this would be a perfect time for a group photo.

  22. Candice Robbins

    We are so excited about our Fall Mini-session, but would love to win a session too!!!

  23. Lauren

    I would LOVE to have a fall bridal or engagement session. My fiancé & I are working so hard to get all of the details together for our June wedding but finances are more than tight. Besides, we absolutely love, love, love your work!

    Blessings ~

  24. amy mcleod

    Single momma of two little ones would love a photo session! I love how bright your pictures are! Beautiful.

  25. Tracy Williams

    We would love a family session. Fall is my favorite time of year and a session would make it even more special!

  26. Hi! I am a photographer myself and it is not often we get family photos taken! We have a 1 month old and a 2.5 year old. We will definitely be needing some family shots in the fall! We would love to win your contest! Love your work!

  27. Rebecca Harris

    This summer started off with so much sadness for my family. My mother was diagnosed with breast cancer mothers day weekend. We had planned a beach trip for mothers day weekend many months prior. So thankful God took us to a tranquil place to deliver the news. During the month of June, my mother met with doctors, underwent three major surgeries, two full weeks of hospital stay and a month of missed work. After meeting with her oncologist it was determined radiation and chemo would not be required or necessary. Through this time she had a prayer chain that was unstoppable. She received every good news report you can possibly receive while having cancer. Being at the cancer center with her and hearing the dr say you are cancer free was the sweetest words I’ve heard. The smile on my mothers face is what makes my heart smile. A new season will bring new happiness. As the summer begins to close, her three granddaughters are celebrating a birthday this week. Nothing would make my mother smile even bigger than having her grandgirls photographed by you! They are her joy!

  28. Jackie Hudson

    I would love a fall session with His Hand Photographs for my reasons! My friend, her husband, and their 3 children were were photographed by His Hands Photographs this time last year and her pictures were phenomenal! I love looking at her portraits when I visit her home (they are hung in almost every room)! I have been a fan on Facebook since last year, always taking a minute to admire your latest work. I would be honored to have such wonderful talent photograph my children (8 year old son and 4 year old daughter). My children and I have had a long summer indoors caring for my infant nephew AND my mother who recently underwent surgery to remove some cancer. Winning this contest would be such a blessing to our family!

  29. Ashley Hood

    I would love a family portait session with His Hands Photography. Your work is amazing!! I am really wanting a large family picture to put above my bed and this would be a perfect opportunity!!!

  30. You come recommended by a friend. I am looking for a wedding/engagement photo photographer. My fiance and I live long distance right now, so winning free engagement session would help us out a lot to keep our costs low! Fall is also a great time to take engagement photos!

  31. alicia webb

    I would to have my baby girls picture made!!

  32. Colleen H.

    I would love a family photo shoot with you. My husband is set to deploy in the next few months and I would love an awesome family photo together before he leaves.

  37. Alye Ward

    Plain & simple… Grace (Gracie Boo) Fitzgerald is the cutest, happiest little girl in the world. She is the daughter of 2 of the kindest people I know who deserve all the goodness in the world. I’d love to see them be treated with some photographs of their family. 🙂

  38. Beka Tully

    I would love to see photos of Grace Fitzgerald. She is such a beautiful baby, and I can already tell the camera will LOVE her! She has the most precious smile 🙂

  39. Nancy Fitzgerald

    Photos of Grace Fitzgerald would be appreciated by all as she is the happiest little girl and has the sweetest smile!

  40. We would love to win a family session for the fall! Our oldest daughter just graduated from high school, and we’re realizing that our family is changing fast. It’s time for a family portrait, and it would be fun to do something other than our usual studio setting. Your photographs are beautiful and unique–hope we win! 🙂

  41. Martha Powell

    I was introduced to you by LeAnn Sheehan. I would love to win a family portrait session with you.

  42. Tiffany Hyde

    I would love to win a session. You have taken my daughters’ one year portraits. Now, we have a little boy who needs to have a session.

  43. Haley Steele

    I would love to have a photo session by you! Your work is inspirational because you incorporate God into your beautiful photos. I am a 16 year old photographer, trying to get an early start to make money for college and you are such an influence on the pictures I take. Your soft approach with children and families is priceless. I will always hope the best for you!

  44. Nicole Morton

    We would love to win a free session. As a family of four, living on a public service income, we only get to have pictures made when there are special offers or contests.

  46. Becky

  51. Tricia Mc

    I would love to have a great family photo. I am always the one behind the camera at our house so there are never any photos of me with my children. I think most moms can identify! We celebrated the arrival of a baby girl this year. It’s time to update our photos. Thanks for offering a contest. Can’t wait to see the results.
