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.

Mattie Grace

Every time I see this little girl, she has been the easiest baby to photography. She’s always so good natured. She didn’t smile at me a lot, but she never once got fussy. What a good baby. GP6A1628a GP6A1654b GP6A1673a GP6A1717a GP6A1778

This sweet family is celebrating 5 years of marriage, and Miss Tynlee turning two. At first Miss Tynlee wasn’t in to having her picture made at all, but she finally settled down and then we had some fun. GP6A1239a GP6A1303b GP6A1307 GP6A1313a GP6A1360 GP6A1539 GP6A1551 GP6A1586 GP6A1605

Josh and Alex

Josh is a former student of mine, and I was so excited when he asked me to take pictures as he proposed to his girlfriend. He led her to the most beautiful spot over looking the city. He had written her a letter, and he had her read the letter with her back to him. When she turned around he was on his knee and he popped the question, and she said yes!!! And then we had a great time doing a quick engagement session before they went and celebrated with their friends and family.

Cadi Lynne

I was so excited to meet this sweet little girl. Her mom and dad have prayed for her for such a long time, and just last week they got the call they had waited on for years. They had been chosen to be the parents to this precious little girl. 1 Samuel 1:27 For this child I have prayed… IMG_9972a GP6A0059ab GP6A0063 GP6A0086a GP6A0124a <GP6A9947b GP6A9984 IMG_0003 IMG_9944a

Heidi and Liam

I always look forward to seeing this sweet family for so many reasons. One, the children are so adorable!!! Liam just cracks me up, I love to talk with him, and Heidi is just so cute. Another reason I love to see them, I always love to see the precious outfits their mother has picked out for them. I mean seriously, the dresses she finds for Heidi are so cute. And finally, I just love talking and spending time with Jessica. She is such a good mom, so laid back, and you can really tell how much she loves being a mom to these two sweet babies. Oh and Drew, it was good seeing you too!!! GP6A8958 GP6A8982 GP6A9016 GP6A9062 GP6A9118 GP6A9189b GP6A9272 GP6A9382 GP6A9456
