Nashville Baby Photographer - Fall Maternity Session in Sylvan Park

I never set out to become a baby photographer. It was always a clear path in my head to be a wedding photographer. But a funny thing started to happen. A few years after their weddings, brides started calling me back to photograph their little ones. And what an honor! To be invited back into the lives of my clients over and over as babies are born and families grow. To document a legacy beyond the wedding day. It's so much better than just being a wedding photographer.

Josh and Rachel are such clients. I had the extreme pleasure of telling their wedding story back a few years ago. And now I'm giddy with excitement that they've welcomed their sweet baby girl into the family! Back in the late fall, just before she arrived, I stopped by their ultra sleek and modern home for this sweet maternity session. I know they'll have many happy days ahead of them in this home, and I think it's great they chose to have their session in their own yard.

If you'd like me to document your own lifetime of milestones - whether engagement, wedding, baby, family, and beyond - just contact me, and we'll get the conversation started. 

Nashville Wedding Photographer - Copper Summer Wedding in Franklin

Copper has long had a special place in my heart. On more than one occasion, I've daydreamed about a kitchen with a copper topped island. Until that dream can become a reality, I'll just sit back and enjoy all these beautiful copper elements from Lane & Kelly's wedding at CJ's Off the Square last summer. It was a scorching hot day, but still so gorgeous in the gardens at CJ's. Kelly was absolutely radiant as she walked down the aisle! One of my favorite details was their rings ... Lane is a geologist, so I couldn't help but photograph their wedding bands on a beautiful amethyst colored geode. Take a look at my favorites from their day, including that STUNNING cake from Wolfe Gourmet Cakes. Seriously, I'm not sure how they brought themselves to slice into it!

Nashville Elopement Photographer - Real Waterfall Elopement

One of the greatest honors I've come to know as a wedding photographer is witnessing some of the most special and intimate moments in a person's life. I'm truly humbled each and every time someone chooses to not only let me into their personal world, but also ask me to tell their story. Sometimes, I'm the only witness to their story, which makes my storytelling task that much more crucial. Trust me when I say I don't carry that lightly.

Such was the case with Kyle & Alex. After going back and forth on weddings plans and an increasing guest list, they decided to simplify. They contacted me about a week before their planned elopement at Rutledge Falls. Having photographed Kyle before, I jumped at the opportunity to tell his and Alex's story ... even at 31 weeks pregnant! Admittedly, hiking down a waterfall in my third trimester maybe (probably) wasn't the best idea, but I couldn't resist the chance to photograph their sweet elopement. The November day turned out to be absolutely perfect weather, with the sun shining through the fall foliage. Here are my favorites from the day. Naturally, these were all shot with film ... a nice way to come full circle with film and with Kyle.
