We often travel during my spring break, as it is typically around Jason’s birthday. This year we decided to head to Austin, TX. I had been before, but it was YEARS ago, and Jason had been, but only to San Antonio. By the time our departure day arrived, we were SO READY! If you do […]

Texas | March 2021

I started my reading challenge in 2019. My goal was to read 12 books that year. Because I spend lots of time in the car, I wanted to listen to them as well. I have absolutely LOVED my Audible subscription! It definitely makes things easier when you drive a LOT! I set out to read […]

2020 Book List

Morgan was originally scheduled for a Saturday session, however, she would be leaving right after and heading to work. I was concerned that she may feel rushed or stressed during her session, so we bumped it to Sunday. Sunday morning I woke up around 4:00 AM to howling winds and rain due to hurricane Etta. […]

Morgan’s Downtown Lebanon Senior Spokesmodel | Fall Session

The morning of Katie’s Fall session had clouds and wind! So much wind!! Mom was a total rockstar with the right tools in hand- brushing, rebrushing and fixing hair. Sometimes mom would brush and hold Katie’s hair down, rebrush, fix hair, and I would rapid fire shoot to capture the non wind-blown crazy hair looks! […]

Katie’s Downtown Murfreesboro Senior Spokesmodel | Fall Session

I had the absolute pleasure of touring the Likazoo Wedding Barn & Event Space last month. Jane, one of the owners, is a sweet and dear past co-worker of mine. It was so exciting to be able to see the event space come to life through their social media pages and then get to tour […]

Vendor Spotlight | Likazoo Wedding Barn + Event Venue

Katie-Officially a Tate | Adoption Day

2020 took a DRASTIC turn with a global pandemic. Many brides were having to push back or cancel their elaborate wedding altogether, while some couples decided to change to a more intimate & simple wedding. With all these changes and state & local regulations on crowd size, the terms micro and tiny wedding were all […]

Five Tips for Seniors

The first time we had out meet & greet it poured down rain. Heading into the senior spokesmodel mini session, I was bit concerned about the weather. I could see the sky getting darker, however, it was in the opposite direction of our location. The girls, on the other hand, weren’t so lucky. Driving to […]
