Luke 1 month | Nashville Newborn Photography

Three weeks ago today, my good friend Dani went into the hospital to have a Craniotomy to get rid of a mass they found after her 4th child, Luke, was born.  The day before, I showed up with my camera to document Luke turning 1 month and capture some sweet moments with Dani and Luke before she had surgery.  Dani’s faith has been amazing to watch through this very unexpected turn of events in her life.  God has met her and given her what she and her sweet family has needed every step of the way.  The surgery went great and they have every reason to believe she will make a full recovery.  She only has some little coordination issues to work through over the next few weeks as she recovers, which is amazing considering the side effects of what could have happened when they were working on her brain.  They had to shave her head and she has a big scar, but this lady is still so beautiful.  She radiates with love, joy and beauty.

Ruthie Sayles Decorating

This was such a fun job for me!  I love beautiful things and it was a joy to walk into Ruthie’s house and see how she uses her gifts to make her house so lovely.  She is an artist and she is starting a business decorating for others!

You really should contact her if you are redecorating one room or your whole house.



She said she brought back this deer head from Paris!

I loved the light in this room and kept coming back to take in all the details.  It was that way all over the house really.  So much skill in putting the details together.  She has a gift!

Dani + Chris | Nashville Maternity Photography

This shoot I took just over a month ago of my dear friend Dani and her family.  Her oldest and my youngest have been best friends since they were 2.  It was a rainy January day and the clouds cleared away just in time for us to grab some fun outside pictures.  She delivered her sweet baby boy a couple of weeks ago and a week later had to go into the hospital with a brain mass.  Today she is having a procedure to help her.  These pictures are even more precious to me today as I pray for my sweet, Godly friend.  Please lift up their family.

The next one if from the hospital when I visited her and met her sweet boy.

These family and maternity pictures are beautiful. You have a real way of capturing the emotion. I had to leave a comment. Great work!! 🙂

Megan + Stacey 2012 | Nashville Family Photographer

I have had the privilege of capturing moments of this family since this sweet almost 3yr old was 3  or 4 days old.  It is such a honor to walk with this family and see how much joy he has brought to Stacey and Megan.  It is also fun to see Jake’s personality continue to bloom.


Jake is such a busy little boy.  He barely stopped the whole time.  It was fun chasing him around.

Jakes’ hair and his eyes just make my arms almost fall off like his mommy likes to say:)  It is true!  He is just so sweet….

I am so happy we got some portraits of Stacey and Megan together.  They are beautiful people inside and out.

Baby Everett | Nashville Newborn

I am celebrating my kids going back to school today by trying to catch up on some blogging.

Here is sweet baby Everett.  He was born on Nov 10th and I was able to grab these pictures 5 days after he was born.  It is best to take newborn portraits 5-10 days after a baby is born.  This is when most newborns are very sleepy.  I loved having his two brothers there to get in a few pictures with him.

We have know Katie and Cason for years and it is a joy to capture these precious moments for them.

I love this next one because I see so much of Cason in his face.

I love to take detail pictures of little parts.  It is amazing how quickly these little feet grow.
