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 […]

2021 Senior Spokesmodel Sunflower Mini Session

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

August 12th is always hard. Truthfully, the 1st two weeks of August are hard because I know what is coming. There are so many things that I replay in my head leading up to this day. What I did. The events of the day. What my room at school looked like. Even what the sky […]

A Painful Day

This week I headed over to Lipscomb University. I have such WONDERFUL memories when I attended there (that’s where Jason & I met, but we didn’t go on or 1st date until 12 years later!). They always had neat shops and locally owned eateries across the street, however, places have come and gone in the […]

Summer Series 2019 | Nashville: Week 7, July 13-July 19

This week started out with me on the hunt for chai tea. I wished I loved coffee, because I LOVE how it smells, however, I am sensitive to caffeine & coffee just makes my stomach hurt. I have absolutely fallen in love with chai tea, and tea in general. During my research, I found out […]

We’ve had LOTS of rain and thunderstorms here in Middle Tennessee! Downed trees, broken fences, ripped off shingles and power outages. Jason and I were able to get ahead of the storm on Saturday & head to Graze in East Nashville for a yummy brunch. They are completely plant-based and serve brunch and dinner. They’re […]

Mama had knee surgery this week, and during her stay at the hospital, I headed out to grab a bite. I needed something quick, tasty & close (enough) by. Sunflower Cafe hit the spot! They are located in the Berry Hill neighborhood, near Vui’s Kitchen. (read about Vui’s here) , at 2824 Azalea Place. They […]

Jason & I love to travel, but sometimes it’s just not feasible. This summer we are heading out in and around Nashville, to discover some local eats, treats and interesting finds off the beaten path. There are so many things just 30 miles from us that we have yet to explore. I can’t wait to […]
