Murfeesboro, TN Sunflower Sessions

Sunflower Sessions

These are too fun!  I love my sunflower sessions.  Sinking Creek Farm in Murfreesboro has planted again this year!  You'll love this location, and it's another place that I can go to shoot.  I have decided to offer mini sessions again. They’re sort of last minute because sunflowers only last for so long. Here are the details:

Total cost is $250, so your regular session fee is waved.  It's also a discount on the 15 digital images you will receive...  AND you get the option to purchase any other product/digitals for 10% off regular pricing. You will spend 20 minutes with me and the sunflowers (don’t worry, that’s plenty of time, and it’s pretty hot right now.) Right now I have a couple of nights the week of July 14th.

Scroll for some of my favorites from last year.  

 

Check out Sinking Creek Farm here.

The Bundy Family

This family. Look how they love each other. Even the guys who didn’t want to be there were good sports! I’m not mentioning any names. :). Seriously, they will cherish these pictures with the extended family. Look at those smiles; you can’t even tell it was cold. And flooded! This was right after all the rain we had in Nashville and Long Hunter State Park was covered with water. We found a good spot and stayed there! It looks beautiful. So glad we did this, Bundy family!

Christmas Time

Now that everyone has sent Christmas cards and spent time with family and friends, it’s safe to post these tree farm Christmas minis. We went out to Circle S Farms here in Lebanon and had a blast in the pine trees. I love meeting with these families and then getting Christmas cards with my pictures! So fun and rewarding. Until next year!

Circle S Farms is an awesome place for for taking family pictures and weddings. It’s beautiful! In the picking season, they also have strawberry patch that residents of Wilson County love.

Check them out here.

These sweet families came to the Fall sessions, along with a couple of others. so thankful for them; I’ve watched most of these kids grow up. I’m loving this fall season and the weather is just now getting cooler. Christmas minis are coming up this Saturday, too! It’s not too late.

Lebanon TN Family Photographer | Major Family

An Extended Family Session

 

Meet the Majors.  I have known these guys for a long time.  Bonnie comes from a whole family of teachers, just like me!  They are the most down to earth, sweetest people you'll ever meet.  The boys are into their farm, sports, outdoor activities, driving the gator (!), you name it.  The rest of the extended family joined us toward the end of our session.  It was a feat to get all the cousins to smile, but we did it with the help of everyone.  I saw some silly stuff!  Haha, it was a great day for pictures.  I had so much fun!

This rainy day weather has made me miss the beach vacation we just took to St. Augustine, Fl. Even though it wasn't as warm as I would have liked the kids never even noticed. Those crazy people were in the water in 60 degree weather. I, on the other hand sat with my towel and beach blanket wrapped around me like a beachy Eskimo. ...I think I'm just old! No, I do not have a picture of that! We also toured the St. Augustine light house. Well, Hank or I didn't tour it. We were too afraid of plunging to our deaths... I did get a picture of the other three waving from the top. There actually was one warm-ish day that we went to the beach and of course, mom had to take family pictures. The wind was blowing the whole time, though, and Lucy and I laughed at our hair sticking up in most of those. We also got to tour a replica of a spanish ship called the El Galeon. It was interesting and I love all the old style details I could photograph. I would recommend visiting St. Augustine when the weather was right. Maybe we'll go again. I think I will wait for summer next time.

Lucy {13 year old pictures}

I can't believe I'm a mom of a 13 year old! She is so excited to be a teenager. I have been hearing about it for a year. I'm happy to have gotten her pictures with snow since her birthday is in December, and I found this great spot thanks to my sister! Lucy looks so grown up to me, but I think she will always have the heart of a sweet little girl.

Prom 2012 {senior prom}

Someone had asked me about Prom pictures in April, so I started thinking about my niece and all her gorgeous friends at LHS Prom last year. We met at the Mitchell House and of course, the embarrassing Aunt had to have a picture of anyone ever connected with Maggie. We had fun and Lucy (my daughter) loved looking at all the girls in the pretty dresses. These are great memories for these girls and I hope they are still in touch wherever they are. Enjoy!

Callie {strawberry patch}

This mild weather today made me long for warmer temperatures, so I turned my thoughts back to last May when I followed Callie out to the Circle K Farms strawberry patch to pick some fresh berries. It may be cold tomorrow, so enjoy this little reminder of sunshine!

Swain {Family Session}

This was a great location and so fun! The boys could run around wherever they wanted (and they did! Haha!) and still they were contained. I love that Whitney and Clint are so laid back. Some of those "natural" poses are the best, even if that certain someone is trying to eat the props. Lots of laughter and craziness makes it all worthwhile and I so enjoyed this session!
