Lee & Lindsey’s Wedding : Spring Hill, TN Photography

Weddings|

Lee and Lindsey have a really sweet, really special story. After many, many years together, and two beautiful boys later they said their "I do"s in front of an intimate crowd of friends and family. It was really sweet to get to be there with them on this beautiful rainy day. Congratulations you guys.

Benner Family : Spring Hill, TN Photographer

Families|

I love this family, and I LOVE this little girl. For all intensive purposes she is my niece. I will be "Auntie Sarah" and she will continue to be a little light in my life. Unfortunately I tortured her by keeping her up past her naptime with this session, and then I introduced ducks. Lots of problems all at once. But we made it happen and I'm so thankful I got to take a little trip to visit these wonderful people and meet this angel child. I deeply hope it's not another year before I see her again!

Steven’s Senior Photos : Spring Hill, TN Photography

Seniors|

Moving in the middle of your high school experience has got to shake a kid up a lot, especially moving from Canada to Tennessee, especially for a hockey player. But, from what I can tell, Steven has really taken it in stride. We highlighted two of his loves during his senior session (something I love to do with teenagers)- hockey, and his Camaro. A storm rolled in on us right as we were finishing the session with it dumping rain as we said goodbye, it was a pretty freaky lighting storm but it made for a cool sky for the backgrounds! Congratulations Steven!

Taylor & Austin’s Engagement Photos : Chattanooga, TN

Couples|

I made a little trip for this one- but why wouldn't I, it's my baby brother! We did the early morning thing and hit some incredible locations. I love these two so much and even if they are super awkward in front of the camera, I am so thankful for them. I can't wait for Taylor to be officially in the family in the Spring!  

Naomi Rose’s Newborn Photos : Franklin, TN Photography

Newborns|

Oh, my heart grew for this one. She's not mine. Not even my niece. But she is something, and she's in my heart for good. That' because her mama is in my heart for good. Rachel falls somewhere between sister and friend so I guess I fall into the "aunt" category- you know, the ones you grew up calling aunt even though they weren't related? I can hope so anyways. Naomi really is the most beautiful little girl. She looks just like her mama and gives you this sweet little gas bubble smiles. I hate that it took a month for me to get to meet her but I'm so glad I did and it was such a blessing to get to photograph her.

Zach & Allie’s Rehearsal Dinner : Lawrenceburg, TN Photography

Events|

I love photographing rehearsal dinners, they are so fun and set the tone for the wedding. Rehearsal dinners like this are even better - good food, good music, lots of dancing- SO great. Zach and Allie are precious, these are dear friends to us, and we love them and their love story. Something is just so so beautiful about a couple that is so clearly meant to be together. Congratulations friends, so much love and luck and prayers and best wishes as you enter this new chapter!  

Strobel Maternity Photos : Franklin, TN Photography

Maternity|

When Alyssa reached out to me she said she wanted her maternity session to look like a family session, just pregnant, and I was so excited because that's exactly how I wanted MY maternity session to look. I love that feeling of just documenting life during this stage. So that is what we did, we played and laughed and enjoyed the park!

Best of 2018 : Personal Favorites

Personal|

I always learn things about myself when I pick our these favorite images. Sometimes I'm completely not surprised by them (I love babies), sometimes I am (I love big rolling skies full of clouds). This year's favorite images were very diverse- things that stood out though: I love black and white, it captures emotion so wonderfully. Also, I love births. I knew this one, they are absolutely my favorite to photograph, I love everything about it and the images that are created. Another thing is that when choosing these favorites I find that the memory of making the image plays a roll, I know the emotion behind a giggle and if it was real or fake, I know if the smile was because of a "cheeeeese" or because of a tickle- and that plays a major role. Here were my top favorite images of 2018 in order: Here are the runners up- in no particular order: And here are a bunch more favorites because I have no self control .... (again in no particular order)

I am a portrait photographer serving the middle TN area.

I offer photo sessions for all times and stages in life. I specialize in story-telling with a lifestyle approach. My goal is to follow my clients through numerous stages of their life from weddings and births to children and family portraits and then to high school seniors. I am also available for birthday parties, family reunions, and anything in between. I do most of my sessions on-location at local parks or client’s homes. I have a small studio as well for photographing younger children. My goal is to personalize your session to exactly what you need and to help me do that I offer many different sized sessions from unlimited sessions which allow for outfit and location changes and wonderful candid moments down to quick milestone sessions to capture growing little ones, birthday sessions or even annual holiday card photos. I design my packages with myself in mind, and what I would want out of a session, because of that, almost always the high-resolution images are included as well as an online gallery for sharing with friends and family. I also offer high-quality professional prints at a low rate.

I love every second of what I do, the main thing you should know about me and my photography is that we are the same in a lot of ways: colorful, vibrant, full of life, sometimes spontaneous, and passionate about memories. Everything in my business is modeled after what I have learned from being a photographer for more than 10 years and from being a consumer of photography- as a student, as a bride, and now a mother. I want to capture the feeling of a moment in time, even if that just means capturing the Christmas card photo where everyone looks like themselves and happy. It means that if your kid doesn’t want to sit still and smile I will chase them around and bribe them with candy till we get what we are after, kids are kids after all! I am playful and energetic but also, I am emotional and deeply connected to the feelings of a moment, I look for details to capture that tell a story, whether it is a birth or a wedding or a family reunion, telling the story of an event is in the details. In the end, what is most important to me is that you get what you are after out of your session, so let’s chat, make a plan, and make it happen!
