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

I have known Katie’s mom Kim for a REALLY LONG TIME! Twenty three years in fact! She is one of my dearest friends! In those years, we have laughed, cried, traveled, helped move, danced, and laughed some more! Each time we meet up we immediately say “heyyyyyy” and start laughing! I’m pretty sure we both […]

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 […]

I recently photographed a wedding (you can read about it here), where Amy & Ryan were guests. The following week, Ryan emailed me about his surprise proposal, and it sounded so cool! I was so excited to be included in this as Amy and I are co-workers. Because Amy & Ryan are HUGE hockey fans, […]

Amy + Ryan | Downtown Nashville Surprise Proposal

Jason met Kyle when he moved back to Kentucky in 7th grade, and they instantly became best friends. They were on the soccer team, were always staying at each others houses, hung out after school, played video games, cruised around town and talked about wrestling. I’m pretty sure they even had some signature moves as […]

They planned their spring wedding in the middle of April, however, Mark wasn’t through with the Fire Academy quite yet, which would have given him his only day off to get married. They decided to push the wedding back one month, to mid-May. […]
