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.

Kenzie Senior Shoot

I love the opportunity to get a senior girl in front of my camera who wants to do something artistic and different. Kenzie had the most beautiful outfits and coolest props for her senior shoot. It felt like a fashion shoot, and she is beautiful enough to be a model.

Cheryl's Family Garden Photo Shoot

This sweet family decided to plant a garden this summer, and four generations worked in this beautiful garden. To celebrate this accomplishment they had t-shirts made, we had a photo shoot, and then at the end of the shoot, what did they do??? They picked vegetables of course and I went home with a basket of home grown goodies.

Ernst Family Sneak Peek

This sweet, young couple is very special to me. Keith is one of my son’s best friends, and I had the honor of photographing their wedding day. So I feel especially honored to do family photos for them. Their little boy, Braxton, is the spitting image of his daddy!!! I enjoyed our early morning shoot so much, even if Braxton made me work so hard for a smile. IMG_0061_0177 IMG_0081_4923 IMG_0093a4935 IMG_0135_0251 IMG_0194_0310 IMG_0407_0516

Matthew Senior Sneak Peek

I absolutely love it when former students ask me to do their senior portraits. I had the pleasure of having all three of the Rogers kids. It was so good to see Matthew, his mom, Beth, and his little sister, Sarah. We had so much fun reminiscing about the good old days in 4th grade!!! Wishing him a fabulous senior year!

Maegan Senior Sneak Peek

The day of Maegan’s photo shoot it rained off and on most of the day, but we were so lucky it didn’t rain a drop during the shoot. We started out at Turkey Creek and got lucky again because we had the whole place to ourself. We then headed to Railroad Park and ended up at the school. Maegan is such a natural beauty and I really wanted to steal some of her awesome jewelry!!!

Will Senior Sneek Peek

Will had the perfect weather for his photo shoot. It was nice and cloudy and just a touch cooler than it has been, so we didn’t melt in the July heat. He’s a trombone player and plans to march with the Jacksonville State University when he graduates. He was such a polite young man, and I enjoyed meeting him so much.
