my goal

Photography has always been a part of my life, but it wasn't until I was in my mid twenties that I realized my passion for it. I started taking photos of my friends and their kids, and as I saw the joy on their faces when they flipped through their images, I knew THIS is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. I’ve been a photographer for 14 years and have never been more in love with my career.

I’m Delmekia. Momma, wife, crime junkie, inspired by music, good light, and you.



meet your

- jae, senior client

I loved how she listened to exactly what I had in mind for my senior picture session and made my dreams come true! She really spent time making sure that I would love what I was wearing and that it matched up with the location she would be shooting at.

"Delmekia was the best possible choice for my senior portraits!"

- Karleigh's Mom, senior client

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.  

"Delmekia portraits capture the beauty of her subject. "

post-session perfection

All you have to do is show up and have fun! I will guide your through facial expression and posing down to your pinky to set up perfectly aesthetic shots that gives a mixture of beautiful portraits and artistic images. My goal is to make the session fly by with lots of laughs and plenty of awesome images for you to select from.

After booking your session, I will send you a detailed session prep guide with tons of info including: a pre-shoot questionnaire, outfit inspiration, grooming tips (guys, you too!), and a helpful session checklist.

The best thing you can do is book your session early, about 1 to 2 months in advance. This will give us time to create a custom mood board for your session, choose your outfits + plan your styling, and scout locations. 

how early should I book my session?

You can order prints, custom grad cards, albums and much more directly from your gallery! This will allow for you to receive images that are of the highest quality. If you prefer to print your images yourself, I can offer you recommendations.

Where do I get prints and products?

Simply put yes. I encourage all my clients too budget for styling services. Makeup for photography is vastly different from makeup for day to day wear. Photo shoot hack: grab a nice dinner or a night on the town after your shoot to get the most out of your makeup and hair!

Should I invest in professional hair and makeup?

My sessions take place in the Greater Birmingham Area, specifically Downtown Bham, Homewood and Trussville. I have a variety of city, urban and nature-type settings I can choose from based on your outfit(s) and the vision you have for your session. Suggests are welcome!

Where do we take the photos?

My focus is on high school seniors and college grads, lifestyle headshots and individual portraits (birthday, maternity, model, etc). I love capturing all the important milestones in your life. 

What type of sessions do you shoot?
