Mother’s Day Gift | Nashville Beauty Photographer

Do you have a picture of your mother that you just love? An elegant portrait that captures the beauty you see in her.  I watched a movie years ago called Family Stone. At one point, someone in the family gave all the siblings in the family a beautiful, classic, and elegant framed portrait of their mother.  It made such an impression on me and I am not sure why it has taken me this long to make my mother sit down for a portrait session.  Mothers need to exist in pictures.  They sacrifice so much and do not get recognized or honored for their hard job.  What if you could give your mother an experience where she gets to feel as beautiful as you think she is?  Would she enjoy getting her hair and make-up done and then having a photo shoot?

My mother was coming to my house after a long day of work.  She was going to take me to see Wicked that night.  I had my neighbor, Jodi, ready to do a quick makeover when she arrived and then I took these quick portraits below.  She was so shocked and she loved getting pampered.  As much as she loved it, I loved it even more because I got to make her feel beautiful and also I get these pictures to treasure.  They will be an heirloom for my family for years to come.  These portraits will honor the woman God gave to me as my mother.  I will rise up and call her blessed.

Headshot | Nashville Portrait Photographer

I had the pleasure of meeting Marcia a few months ago. She is a designer in town and needed an updated headshot.  I suggested having a make-up artist join us for the shoot. Marcia thought that was a great idea, so we set up a time with my friend Jodi to do the make-up for the shoot. Jodi is a blast to hang out with and we had such a fun time. Not only did Marcia get some new head shots, but she left feeling pampered! I look forward to more sessions where I focus on helping women feel beautiful.

Linnea + Wood

Our intern, Linnea met a sweet boy last summer when she started a new job.  We watched as this relationship grew and bloomed.  You never know what can happen when you take a new job:)  Wood in an intern at another school.  He was in town last weekend so I grabbed some time with them to take engagement pictures. I met them at the park and had a fun time capturing sweet moments with the two of them.  I love documenting engagement sessions.  I turn my back for a few minutes to change my lens and I hear them talking and laughing:) We are so excited to have front row seats to watch this relationship continue to grow.

It is fun when the couple has ideas for pictures to try.  The one below is an example of Linnea’s idea she wanted to try.  Love it!

Wood’s family helped make this banner for the night he proposed to her.  They brought it along for our shoot!

Nashville Newborn Photographer | Baby Knox

This is my beautiful cousin Kelly.  She was like a sister to me growing up.  I was so happy to share the joy of this new boy, Knox, in their family. I loved spending a few hours with her family in my home studio just 5 days after Knox was born.


I love getting to hold and rock sweet little babies.  Knox is so adorable as you can see below.  

Kelly brought this sweet hat to use in a couple pictures.

This last image was done to put up on their wall because the other two boys have pictures like this.


Caitlin and Jonathan’s Wedding | Downtown Franklin Wedding

I had the honor of capturing these moments with Caitlin and Jonathan a few weeks ago.  They got married in Downtown Franklin and it was a beautiful day.  It was not the warmest day, but it was not bad considering it was January:) Jonathan works with my husband with RUF and we met Caitlin when she moved to town last summer.  Caitlin was a beautiful bride as you can see below.     

They had a first look outside this Historic house in Downtown Franklin which is where they got ready and also where they had their reception.  They both were nervous before they saw each other and after the first look, they both were so calm.  It is sweet to see how love can do that.

These girls were troopers to stand outside for pictures.  We did have coats to put on and off.

Thankful for my second shooter, Rebekah Curfman, for helping me.
