Photoshoots don’t have to be stressful. Whether senior or grad portraits, content for your brand, or one of life’s many special moments, I want to be there for it all! I create custom photoshoots that leave my clients feeling confident & vibrant on camera.
The final piece to this equation is the gallery reveal and retouching process. You will receive an online proofing gallery with all of your best images to select your favorites for editing and ordering. I hand edit each image in my signature style keeping your skin true to tone and the colors warm, vivid and authentic. When you receive your final images and products, you will love them, be excited to share them, and then ask, “When can we do this again?!”
The shoot itself is a blast and far more laid back than what most people expect. I’ll guide you through posing and expressions to create beautiful natural shots with movement and portrait perfect placements.
I’m all about the details and guiding you step-by-step through the process. When you inquiry, I’ll send you my investment guide with session and product options. Once you’re booked, you’ll receive a ton of info on how to prepare, wardrobe inspiration, and a client questionnaire to help me customized your session.
I'm the one behind the camera, the ultimate fan girl when you’re crushing your session, and the friend guiding you during every step of the photography process. As a photographer, I love city and urban neighborhoods and environments, bright colors, shapes and textures. While my photography style is very colorful and bold, I’m more quiet, introspective and love spending time reading on my Kindle.
This was my first branding shoot and WOW! Trusting someone to capture the essence of you and your brand can be difficult. But rest easy Delmekia images are clean, professional and consistent. Perfect for your social media feed.
We searched 20+ photographers for someone to take Peyton's senior pictures. Anyone that can make a boy naturally smile and genially be happy taking pictures has conquered a huge obstacle in the life of a boy's mom.
Delmekia made me feel super comfortable during my session. The environment was very relaxing and she kept me laughing. I usually hate having my pictures taken, but I was so comfortable during my session it felt freeing.
It’s in the eyes, the smile, and her ability to bring the light, the background, all the elements together to capture each beautiful moment. Delmekia instills a trust that as a parent, I can sit back and know whatever she does, I will love.
They will become family heirlooms that we will treasure for years and years to come. She is so professional, kind, and I consider her family. She's my go to photographer for all my kids. My girls love working with her!
I generally don't like taking pictures but Delmekia made my senior session so effortless and fun. I felt very comfortable and my mom and I loved the images. Expectations exceed! Wish I could do it again!
I offer a customized portrait photography experience - including senior and grad photography, portrait photography, and brand photography. Sessions are shot primarily outdoors, on-location, and include a specific number of downloadable digital images with printing rights.
Your senior year is such an exciting time in your life and ONE of the only times besides childhood and marriage where YOU are the star and you get to moonlight in your own pictures! Why not make it FUN & exciting?!

The best thing you can do is book your session early! I book my sessions 1 to 2 months in advance to give us time to game plan. A sign agreement + a $150 non-refundable session deposit is due at time of booking.
Sessions are shot in the Birmingham, Alabama area, specifically within Downtown Birmingham, Homewood or Trussville, AL unless otherwise agreed upon. Locations are chosen based on your outfits and the vibe/feeling you want for your photoshoot.
Sessions are scheduled during a very precise time of day based on our session plan. So depending on the the time of year, we may begin as early 1:00 pm during the late fall/winter or as late as 4:00 pm in the summer. Mini Sessions are scheduled for early/late mornings.
Don't worry...I got you covered! When you book your session, I’ll send you a link with tons of information about how to prepare for your photo shoot, including beauty tips (guys, this goes for you, too!), wardrobe inspiration, and a list of what to bring.
Professional hair and makeup is truly the foundation to a killer photoshoot and I HIGHLY recommended hiring your favorite professional for your photo shoot. You are welcome to DIY but please note I do not offer free reshoots for bad makeup.
You might feel awkward at first, but as the session goes on and I guide your through posing and facial expressions, I think you'll discover your inner model and find that being photographed can actually be fun.
