Welcome, my name is Karen Waters and I am a on-location lifestyle portrait photographer located in Mt. Olive, AL.  My photo sessions are mostly in natural settings.  Sometimes this happens at an old barn across from my house, or at a wild flower garden of a friend, or at a beautiful waterfall.  I love to take photos and every photo session will have a special and unique feel.  Forgoing forced smiles and poses; I embrace the natural smiles and expressions.  When you look at an image by Waters Photography through the years, I want you to remember the experience of a custom photographer and the personal attention to you and your needs.  I want you to cherish the beauty and quality of the images and the memories that will last a lifetime.

Josie and Peyton

I always love seeing this sweet family. Peyton has the sweetest little personality, and boy does he love his little sister, Josie. Can’t believe she’s already 6 months old!!! She is such a doll.

Oh my, who doesn’t love a sweet baby photo!? This little guy was amazing for his baby portraits! It can be tough getting a newborn to sleep… they always know it’s their portrait day and are too excited to sleep, but he did awesome. Mom told me she decorated his room in vintage transportation, and Jeff had just finished building the cutest little plane for me, so it was perfect. She also brought a clock to use, and she had it set to the time he was born. I thought that was such a cute idea.

Baby Sessoins are so sweet! I love seeing a 6-month-old’s personality begin to blossom. Sawyer is such a sweet baby with the most beautiful eyes ever. I love getting to see him grow.

I have had the pleasure of knowing Dawson’s mom for about 20 years!! Getting to see families grow is such a gift. We had a great time venturing around Oak Mountain for Dawson’s senior shoot. I wish you the best as you finish your senior year and step into college.
