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.


I had such a fun morning photographing Miss Annabelle. She will soon turn one year old and she is full of personality. She is just a doll. So adorable!! IMG_0277_1950 IMG_0251a1924 IMG_0124_1797 IMG_0020_1693 IMG_0012a1682

Mattie Grace

Mattie Grace gets the award for being the easiest newborn session ever!!! She came to the session asleep, and she let me pose and love on her the entire time, and she stayed asleep until the very end. IMG_0090b1640 IMG_0076_1626 IMG_0052b1602 IMG_0023_1573 IMG_0001_1551

Katie and Rob

I recently had the pleasure of photographing Katie & Rob's fantastic wedding at Matthew’s Manor in Springville. This was the first wedding I had covered at Matthew’s Manor and I really enjoyed it, the venue is absolutely beautiful. Katie only had one bridesmaid, her sister Lauren, and Rob only had one groomsman, his buddy James, and so we had lots of time for fun and pictures! Katie and Rob are so perfect for each other, they both were so laid back and just enjoyed every minute of the day. These two are so adorable together and they were seriously up for anything to get a good shot. Shout out to Lisa Reid for being my second shooter for the day, thanks so much.

C.J. and Courtney Engagement Sneak Peek

This was the best engagement session ever!!! And I’m not just saying that because it’s my son and his fiancĂ©….well yes, that was the main reason. C.J. behaved for the most part, but I could probably do a whole album of outtakes. He was cracking me up. It is always so nice to see couples who are so in love and these two just make my heart happy. Courtney makes him so happy and C.J. is head over heels for her. They are so perfect for each other, and I couldn’t be happier for them.

Cory and Becky

This in-love engagement session I can’t get enough of! Cory is kin folk and so we love him to the moon and back already, and his sweet fiancĂ©’ is a perfect match for him. We started the session out and Cory’s mom and dad’s house. The beautiful fields and pond were a perfect setting, not to mention being photobombed by horses. Then we headed to the home of Duane and Jackie Derrick where their beautiful barn and field gave us another awesome setting. And not to be outdone by the horses we were photobombed by cows here. An award goes to Cory and Becky for being the most relaxed duo during a photo shoot. I can’t wait for your wedding day!
