It’s been awhile since I blogged a family session, but there’s no better one to blog!  I first met this family when their daughter Rylee was a newborn, and I’ve been lucky enough to capture lots of fun times since then!  Reid is the happiest little guy, and Rylee can carry on conversations with me like an adult, which always makes me laugh!  We had a beautiful morning for their session!  Here are just a few of my favorites!  Happy week friends!

    Hello, I am looking for a photographer to photograph my family. What are your prices?ReplyCancel

For the past few months, my calendar has been full of Nashville engagement sessions!  It’s easy to see why so many couples want to have photos all around our fabulous city!  There are so many great buildings, fun textures, and of course that bridge everyone loves :)!  Brittany & Zach are getting married out of state, but since they met here, got engaged here, and live here, they chose to document this exciting time in downtown Nashville.  We started the session in Nashville Public Square, where Zach proposed to Brittany over the holidays…I loved that they thought to incorporate the spot into these photos as well!  After walking a few miles all over downtown, we ended up in the same spot just before dark.  We had a fabulous spring day, and I’m thrilled with how their photos turned out!  Take a look at some of my favorites!

Hi friends!!!!  I hope that everyone is surviving winter and making the best of dreary days!!  While I’m still shooting lots of babies, engagements, etc., I’m really enjoying this slower time of the year!  I’ve been spending some much needed time catching up on things at the gym, on Netflix and with my friends and family!!  I always love this season because it allows more room to breathe, be spontaneous, focus on the upcoming year, and hello….BLOG!!  I will be sharing several things from last year over the next few weeks, so be sure to check back!!

Meghan and Lee are up first!  Their Nashville wedding is in just over 2 months, and is sure to be amazing!!  They surely brought the heat to their downtown Nashville engagement season, and I just know Meghan will be a stunning bride!  Here are just a few of my favorites from their session.

Ashley & Chris’ lovely Mitchell House wedding took place in early June.  I met both Ashley & Chris for the first time on their wedding day, but they couldn’t have been any easier to get along with or photograph!   Ashley’s style was so classic, simple and absolute perfection.  They chose not to see each other prior to the ceremony, and Chris’ sweet reaction when he saw his bride for the first time was one of my favorite parts of their day!  I was so honored to be the one to capture this amazing celebration for them!

Tis the season to start blowing up the blog with all of the many things I’ve done in the past year!  I always have the best of intentions when it comes to keeping up my blog through the year, but inevitably it takes a back seat to shooting, editing, juggling all of my family responsibilities and just living life!!  I have SO much to share, and as soon as I get my monkeys back in school, I’ll definitely be posting more!  I just posted this newborn gallery, and wanted to share just a few of my favorites!!  I first met this family when their daughter was born a few years ago!  I was so happy to hear that they were expecting a baby boy and loved meeting him!  We shot these images just before Christmas in my Lebanon studio.  I’ve so enjoyed having the studio throughout most of 2015, and can’t wait to see what 2016 holds!!  Happy New Year friends!!
