There is not much that makes me happier than exploring a new place with a gorgeous, totally in love couple. When Allyson and Zach suggested we take photos at their family farm I was ecstatic! And when we got there it was even better than I had imagined! I love these images so much and cannot wait for the wedding day!
A few weeks ago I had the best time photographing Rebecca, Luke, and their adorable German Shepherd puppy Bella. We walked around downtown Nashville, did a few at LP Field, and then ended our session at the always lovely Shelby Bottoms nature center. I can’t wait for the wedding this November!!
Today my babies turned 18 months old. There really isn’t much “baby” left in them – they are toddlers in every sense of the word. The average observer would never even know they were preemies. But I know. And I will never forget how scary it was in the hours after their birth, wondering if they would be ok, wondering if they would be healthy. Then they are home and you think you can breath again, but around every corner there is a new challenge. They have fought so hard for every milestone and in some ways are still fighting. My sweet Charlotte, 4.6 ounces at birth, has been labeled as “suspected mild cerebral palsy.” She has fought to learn to swallow, to learn to sit, and just recently learn to walk. She is currently receiving therapy through our state’s early intervention program and will be getting braces soon to help strengthen her ankles. But every day she amazes me in her sheer determination and will. I have no doubt that she will do whatever she puts her mind to. I am so incredibly proud of both of these sweet girls. They truly are my heart.
Please consider making a donation to our March of Dimes Walk for Babies team. Without the research they have funded, our story could be so different. I want to see a day when there is no more premature birth. Help this dream become a reality by making a donation.

Wishing you all a very “hoppy” spring from all my little bunnies!!
Over the weekend I had the pleasure of photographing some pups that are in need of a good home. They all have sad stories to tell – many were found tied up after their owner had died – but you can help give them a happy ending! I wanted to bring them all home with me, but since I can’t, the next best thing would be if YOU did!! You should absolutely contact Best Friends today and tell them you can’t live without having one of these dogs as your new best friend
Beethoven - such a sweet boy!
Betty – Betty is in extra special need of a home. If she doesn’t find one soon, she will have to be put down
Buddy – isn’t his fur just to die for?? He was so, so soft and super friendly.
Casper – His eyes are breathtakingly beautiful! He was also a shy and gentle love!
Digger – I think this guy may have been incorrectly named! I saw no evidence of digging but he did love, love, love to play!
Princess – I think her name was actually Princess Mia, but I can’t quite remember. This poor girl has prematurely aged from malnutrition before coming into rescue. Don’t let the grey food you! Her teeth were those of a young pup!
Rex – This was another big, playful hunk of love!
Shilo – She got her name because she is a shy little girl, but I know if you adopt her she will be curled up in your lap in no time flat!
And last but not least Sophie. Sophie is not quite ready for her forever home. She is still recovering from mange, but she is well on her way to getting better.
