Nashville Family Photographer - Lifestyle Newborn Session on Film

So I have a little confession: I have some major baby fever! As I announced back in July, Joshua, Clark, and I are beyond excited to welcome the newest addition to our family sometime in mid-January. Until then, every time I hold a baby, it just amps up my excitement! I just love having a newborn in the house. This recent lifestyles newborn session of Baby Clyde reminded me of just how much I love shooting in the home, where I can tell the story of baby and parents in their normal day-to-day life. Of course, when a home is filled with big, uncovered windows allowing the natural light to flow in as well as gorgeous, thoughtful, timeless details, my job gets even easier.

Nashville Wedding Photographer - Nashville LDS Temple & CJ's Off the Square Wedding

Wedding photography is more than just taking pictures, it's telling a story. And not just any story, but that of my clients. Sometimes, like in a good novel, sometimes the characters whisk me away to an unfamiliar but extraordinary setting. That’s what happened recently at the nuptials of Ashley and David. Their primary ceremony happened at the gorgeous marble structure of Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints Temple in Nashville. Like all traditional Mormon weddings, the sealing was private, so I waited patiently outside the doors until that special moment when Ashley and David joyfully burst through them as man and wife. After being greeted by other waiting friends and family, we captured some amazing images on the temple grounds after the wedding. Later, the couple hosted a second ceremony at CJ’s Off the Square where the bride and groom enjoyed all the traditional elements of a summer garden wedding draped in shades of burgundy, blush, and gold.

Nashville Wedding Photographer - Farm Engagement Session on Film

One of the things I love about my job is that you can’t never predict exactly how a session will go. There are moments when the fates align and I get to capture a one-of-a-kind moment. That’s what happened on a recent engagement portrait session on my family farm in Bedford County. It was a gorgeous summer day … not too hot … a striking sunset … just enough breeze to keep us cool. Then, out of nowhere, we got a pop up thunderstorm. Maggie, Ryan, and I stood in the barn for nearly 20 minutes waiting on the rain to stop. Then suddenly, it did … the sun came back out, and the most adorable little rainbow filled the darkened sky. How’s that for a good wedding day omen.
