Lanie and Brandon – Smiley Hollow Wedding

July 11th, 2014 · 1 Comment

Lanie and Brandon’s wedding was not only one of the most beautiful I’ve had the pleasure of photographing, but it was also one of the most touching.  These two just radiate love for each other!  I am so honored to have been there to capture it all for them.  Smiley Hollow was the perfect setting and it all went off without a hitch!  Ok, maybe one small hitch in the form of a photobomb-loving donkey but it made for some great memories and of all the things that could happen at a wedding that aren’t planned – I think this rates at the very top of the list?  Curious?  Scroll down to see what I’m talking about ;)

Betsy and Josh – Front Porch Farms Nashville Wedding

June 27th, 2014 · No Comments

Ahhh!!  It’s been forever since I’ve blogged!  I’ve been busy shooting and editing and enjoying life through the eyes of my two girls.  But what better event to break my blogging hiatus with than this gorgeous wedding at one of my favorite venues!  Betsy actually works at Front Porch Farms so I was incredibly honored that she chose me out of all the photographers she has worked with to capture her big day.  And just as I expected, it was a spectacular event with tons of gorgeous details and tons of love <3

Nashville Baby Photographer

February 28th, 2014 · 2 Comments

Say what??!!?? Yes this post totally says “Baby Photographer.”  Not a title I ever thought I would give myself, but one that seems to have found me.  I still remember when my friend Sara came over to do the girls’ newborn photos and her telling me, “You will be doing this soon!”  I swore up and down that I didn’t have the patience and that she was crazy.  Lesson learned – always listen to Sara ;)  Anyway, since I opened up my calendar to babies and children there seems to have been a bit of a baby boom!  And I’m really enjoying visiting with all these precious newborns!  I’m still keeping my focus on weddings and dogs, but who can resist a little bit of baby cuddling once or twice a month??

Valentine’s Minis for Pups and Babies!

February 19th, 2014 · No Comments

I announced back in November on my Facebook page that I have decided to take on a limited number of families and children.  With that in mind, I decided to include kids in this year’s Valentine’s mini session event.  Holy cow did the babies come out!!  Really toddlers if you want to get technical, but my toddlers are still my babies so they count ;)  Such a fun morning of blowing bubbles, singing off key, and doing pretty much anything silly to get a laugh!  Thanks to everyone who came out!  I hope to see you all again very soon!
