The Glimpse: July 2019

Favourite Moment

Snugglin’ with Lainey bug at the Milners’ house. Always. It’s taken eight years for us to be good friends, so I’d say this is a huge win!

Eating two meals at the Little London Kitchen! A sweet English couple came up with the fun idea to cater English food in a London bus. It’s been such a huge hit in Birmingham and fun to take friends with me to experience a little food from home. You should definitely check it out for lunch or dinner!

Family pictures on the beach and unprompted snuggles with my cute niece and nephew. You can see more of our family trip to Florida here!

Favourite News

My bestie got ENGAGED!!!! So so thrilled for Caroline and Ernie and cannot wait to double duty as bridesmaid and photographer again on November 10. See their proposal that I had the honour of photographing here.

Funniest Moment

We made fatheads for a church event to celebrate Pastors Conference. It was a super fun night with our church fam reflecting on all God did through the opportunity to plan and execute a conference for 6,000 Southern Baptist pastors. It was honestly one of the top 10 weekends of my life and such a joy to serve alongside my favourite peeps. Click through here to read a bit of the back story!

Favourite Personal Picture

Each one of these people represent God’s faithfulness to me – a best friend since eighth grade, coworkers, community group members, neighbours, old and current roommates, small group peeps, friends from my home church in Atlanta and friends who are practically siblings. What a gift to spend an evening with them all to celebrate my 26th birthday!

My roommate, Emily, and I share the same birthday week, so we dressed up and went to East West in downtown Birmingham together! It was so fun spending intentional time with one another. We had a blast!


Favourite Photograph

I love these next two images from a wedding I second shot with Lindsey Drennen! I actually had some mutual friends from West Point that knew Erik, the groom, so it was fun to make connections! They are a precious couple and the dance floor was BUM.PIN.

I’m so excited for Kristen + Steven as they journey through the adoption process! I had the honour of meeting them this month and I’m so excited that Kristen is about to join my small group! This job is ministry and I’m so thankful that God allows me to connect with amazing people.

Gosh, this cute fam lights my heart up. Ashley is a fellow photographer so when she contacted me about a family session, I jumped at the chance! I knew her outfit choices would be on point and her family was trained in the skill of posing πŸ˜‰

Favourite Piece of Encouragement

Watching God’s outpouring of blessing on this couple — Brendon had a kidney transplant in July at UAB. Jonee stood by his side throughout this five-year journey. These two are great family friends from my home church at it was so fun to have them in Birmingham – thanks to UAB’s great care – for three weeks. My home church was able to walk this process with them and watch Him do more than we all asked or imagined. So thankful to see God’s hand so evidently through their testimony! Oh, and we snuck in a mini session at the Botanical Gardens before they left πŸ™‚

What I’ve Been Working On….

Shooting and editing definitely sloooowed down in July, but I had a ton of fun sessions and contract work! So life never reallllly slows down over here πŸ˜‰ I helped produce a sermon series bumper with our creative team at church, then took a whole eight days off to spend with my family to celebrate the end of wedding season! March-June was a very busy stretch for Eleanor Stenner Photography, so I was super thankful to wind down before fall starts back up!
