About Me

photo by sara e. rose

Well, if you haven’t figured it out yet, I’m a Nashville, TN Photographer.  I’m also a wife, mother and daughter to some pretty amazing folks!  I’m a sucker for  a good love story, iced sugar cookies, and addicted to Diet Coke. I’m a little bit goofy, kind of dramatic, and if you ask my husband, I’m always right ;)!  I cry at the drop of a hat these days (blame it on motherhood) and I am doing my best to live life to the fullest & enjoy the little things, all while keeping my head above water!   I love having fun and love a good margarita 🙂  (no salt please), though not required it makes everything a little bit better.  I am so thankful to God for His grace and blessings and would be honored to help tell your story through photographs!!

I am absolutely in love with capturing love.  I strive to capture it in all situations, whether it be with a newly engaged couple, on a wedding day, cuddling a new baby, or the love of a family!  Those moments are what make me feel full!  I am reminded by these simple moments that life is good, love is magnificent, and laughter is required!!  I want you to remember the feeling you had in those amazing, yet simple moments each and every time you look back at your images.  I serve  the Middle TN area including Davidson, Wilson, Rutherford, Williamson, and Sumner Counties.  I also accept commissions outside those areas.   Please contact me for additional information.

If there’s anything I can do to help you, please feel free to use my contact form to get in touch!!  Can’t wait to hear from you!

    This is amazing! My name is Brandy and I’m 16 years old. I’m homeschooled and I love photography too! Someday, I would love to open up my own photography business, which is something I’m working on right now. You’ve just encouraged me to follow my dreams and to never give up.
    Thank you so much,

    Chesley: I absolutely love the photos you took of my loved ones.
    You really have a talent of catching those perfect poses. I would
    love to have a price sheet, so I can try and decide which photos
    to order (which won’t be an easy task). Tell Pookie we said hello. You have two beautiful children!ReplyCancel

    Hi there! I’ve been referred to you by Christa Booker. I’m looking to have some portraits done of my daughter & myself & I absolutely LOVE the photos of Christa & her family. I was wondering what your sitting fee/photo price would be for us. I’m a single parent so my budget is a little tighter than some. But I’m definitely willing to work out anything we can! I’m sure you’re busy so if you could just get back to me at your convenience that would be great. My email is fine to contact me or my cell phone is an even even faster way to contact me: 615.618.3834.

    Look forward to hearing from you soon (as possible),
    – Marie AderholtReplyCancel
