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.

Lance and Erika Engagement Shoot

I just love meeting young couples who are about to begin their new lives together as husband and wife. I love to see how they react to each other, and this couple was so adorable. The love they have for each other was so evident, I just loved how their faces just lit up when they looked at each other.

Sam and Mary Catherine's Wedding Day

Jeff and I are so honored when special friends want us to take the photos for their special day. Mary Catherine and her family are so special to us. Her mother, Jennifer, was in my Bible class for years, she helped me decorate and organize C.J.’s room before he was born, Jeff was a groomsman in her and Daren’s wedding. Jennifer’s mom, Quita, and I use to paint together. The family connections and memories just go on and on, and the wedding day of Mary Catherine and Sam will be a memory that we will always cherish. The day was so rainy and gloomy, but Mary Catherine and the bridal party were shining rays of sunshine. Mary Catherine wore her mother’s wedding dress that her mom completely altered. We are so happy to be a part of their lives.

The Ward Family

I was so excited when Shelley sent me a message and said that she and David would be home from Texas for the holidays and they wanted to get together for a family photo shoot. I knew it would be a blast, and I was right. Ever since Jeff and I photographed Shelly and David’s engagement and then their wedding we have had a special bond with this family. Looking forward to seeing them again soon. IMG_0204a8114 IMG_0227_8136 IMG_0258_8167 IMG_0290a8199 IMG_0314_8223 IMG_0351_8260 IMG_0356_8265

The Woodards

I have the ability to read minds….just thought you would want to know. Before the Woodards came to our house for Landon’s newborn shoot, I thought it would be so cute to have him in a little tent, like he was camping, and (here comes the mind reading part) that is the theme of his nursery!!! I mean look at the cute moose his mother made and brought to the shoot too. Maybe she’s a mind reader too.

Eden Rose

This sweet little girl made us work hard for these pictures, but it was so worth it. When her mom finally got her to sleep, she was perfectly happy to let me mold her. IMG_0295b6858 IMG_0306_6869 IMG_0309a6872 IMG_0314a6877 IMG_0358_6921 IMG_0382b6945 IMG_0405a6968 IMG_0417_6980
