Nashville Photographer | Castle Heights Lebanon, TN

Graduate

Meet Jade. Class of 2019. So excited for her! I can’t believe it’s time already. This sweet girl had her cap and gown pictures done at The Mitchell House on Castle Heights campus during my cap and gown minis. We always have a great time. I’m glad she came, and I can’t say enough how important it is to get these pictures done at a time when it’s not so crazy! Graduation day is exciting and hectic, and sometimes it’s even hard to find your grad! She’s planning on getting her degree to be an investigative crime scene superhero (I’m sure that’s not the correct term, but it sounds fun and important). You’re going to do great, Jade! We’ll do this again when you graduate from college! :)

Nashville, TN Photographer | Graduation Sessions

Cap and Gown Mini Sessions

Did you like your cap and gown picture? Maybe you just want some fun, casual shots. This was awesome. I’m so excited to start offering these each year. Graduates, it doesn’t matter what school you go to. Come on out for a few minutes of fun and have a few pictures made before your big day. I know graduation day is super busy, so this is something you can get done ahead of time.

Your parents won’t have to stress about it. Cost is $50. That’s it. When you book, I’ll get you the time and place information. Class of 2019!!!

Brezeida—Class of 2019

How can this be? I’ve known Brezeida since she was little. Look what a beauty she has grown into! We started her session at Fiddler’s Grove here in Lebanon, and then we went to Lebanon High School where she plays softball. I tried to get her to look mean and tough, but she ended up just looking cute. Haha, not a bad problem to have. AND you do not understand how happy I got when she pulled out her prom dress for softball pictures!! Love this family. I can’t wait to see what happens in her future.

Nashville Senior Photography | Wilson County Fair

BFFs

  I was so pumped to do this BFF session at the fair.  These girls have been friends for a while, and now they are thinking of college and all that goes with it.  Seniors: Class of 2019.  I'm so glad they let me follow them around the Wilson County Fair.  I had so much fun.  They like each other so much that they didn't even look at their phones the whole time.  So sweet.  :)  Well, scroll down to see who got to hold all their stuff: purses, phones, hair bands.  So funny.  I love, love, loved doing this session for them, and I know it's hard to leave good friends for a little while after high school.  Girls, keep in touch and brave the world together.  It's so important to have besties who build each other up.

#theempoweringproject

 

This project to empower women in our community has exceeded my expectations!  Iddy and Oscars (on the square in Lebanon) and I have teamed up to empower women in our community the best way we know how, through our businesses.  It may be a small thing, but when I met the women who participated I realized it all starts with a few people being kind, strong, ambitious, gentle, and positive.  Each woman has shared her story and love with us.  Follow along this week on instagram #theempoweringproject to see what beauty they have shown. 

 

Also PLEASE stop by the store to purchase a t-shirt with these ladies' empowering words on it.  Proceeds go to help women in our community.

Nashville Senior Photographer | High School Graduate

Chase

   Meet Chase.  Class of 2018.  Young and reckless.  That's how he describes himself.  Also he's confident, kind, definitely polite.  He's very athletic and he made me laugh during his senior session.  We went out to The Mitchell House on Castle Heights campus for the first part of his photo shoot. Then we headed to the a place he loves, the lake; his family's lake house.   Chase loves to wakeboard and be on the water.  He was homeschooled for his high school career because he was traveling so much for his moto cross competitions.  Before that, it was baseball and football.  I told you he is athletic and into everything. 

 During our session Chase said he really wasn't into taking pictures, but by the end he was asking for more (with his truck!).  Love it, I knew he would change his mind once we started.  He was raised right, super polite.  I have no sense of direction, and when I followed him to the lake house he made sure to put on his blinker.  I knew this was a good kid.  :)  Scroll down to see his senior pics!

Lebanon High School Senior | Annie

  You've seen Annie's pictures before, and hopefully you'll see them again!  She is part of my senior model team.  Annie was a senior at Lebanon High School, but she just graduated.  Yay, so exciting!  Cumberland University, look out!  She is an aspiring lawyer, loves her Jeep, her cat, and kayaking.  I love all those things, too...well, except the lawyer part.  I love to teach. :) 

Annie is so beautiful in these senior portraits.  I can't even get over it.  

Nashville Senior Photographer | Kate

Wilson Central High School | Kate

  Well, today is the last day to register for prizes...so ends my Senior Week.  It was awesome, and I'll let you know this week if you won.  Yay!

  While you're waiting, take a look at Kate, a sophomore at Wilson Central High School.  She's into all kinds of good things:  Yearbook, writing and designing, and BETA Club.  Of course she's smart!  :)  I'm so glad she became part of my model team this year.  She even brought her best friend with her, who was also super sweet.  While learning about Kate, I found out one important thing.  Something that trumps all of it:  She's kind and wants to spread it.  I love that!  She plans to become a veterinarian and she also loves photography, just like me!  

If you want to know more about the Kindness Club that Kate represents, click below.

   Ok, soooo I have lots more senior pictures to post and talk about from my model team this week!  I have decided to extend Senior Week!  That's good for you because you can still register for prizes and book your senior session at a discount.  This week is definitely IT, though.  Here's the link: Sign up HERE

    Before you go scroll down to see today's featured model, Jayda!  Her outfit is the highlight of my day today.  Back in the 90s (YES), my favorite thing to wear was velvet and denim.  I am so happy to see that it's back.  Well, I usually had a choker and platform sandals to go with it...

  Jayda is a sophomore at Lebanon High School.  She loves dancing, swimming, and trying new things.  She's is a singer and is active in her church and Girl Scouts.  She is a positive person...and organized...and hardly ever late to things.  I think I need her in my life!  She's gorgeous, too.

 

  

Here's a post I found about 90s STYLE

Nashville Senior Photographer | Bailey

Watertown High School Freshman | Bailey

 

Meet Bailey!  My freshman "senior model".  She did so great, and just wow!  Also I'm partial to redheads, since I have one of my own.  :)  It has been a long while since I've taken pictures of her, but I'm so glad she has come back.  At Watertown High School, Bailey is into Art, Science, and Reading.  Math...not so much (I'm with ya, sister).  She loves makeup, animals and social media, but not red tomato sauce!  Haha, love it.  A strong girl who knows herself.  She wants to be a dermatologist in the future, and you can catch her raising chicks for 4H.  Scroll down to see this beauty.  Her serious face is just awesome, as is her smile.  Thanks, Bailey!

   I love this girl!  This is Trinity's feature for Senior Week.  She has modeled for me two years in a row because I just couldn't resist.  I've known her for a while because we go to church together.  She is definitely a person who is strong enough to show her individuality, and I think she is awesome.  Cats are her favorite, and you'll see her at MTSU in the fall.

Lebanon TN Senior Photographer | Lebanon High School

Briawna

Meet Briawna. Class of 2018.  This girl is into everything.  We could hardly find time for pictures, but luckily she made room for me in her busy schedule!  Lebanon High School is lucky to have her, and of course, Ole Miss will be, too.  We snuck into the gym to get most of her cheer pictures, and then wandered around the high school for the rest...just kidding.  We didn't sneak.  It helps to have a mom who's PTO president.  Briawna is a cheerleader and golfer.  She loves to read and spend time at the gym.  Loves: Friends and Teammates Dislikes: When people don't give 110%.  Of course, we also had to include some mom and daughter pics in their Preds jerseys! Scroll to see some fun pictures at Lebanon High School.

Lebanon High School | Brett

 

   Meet Brett.  Senior. Class of 2018 at Lebanon High School.  I was so glad when his mom contacted me for his senior pictures.  We went to downtown Lebanon, one of my favorite places.  It fit!  

   Brett is looking forward to socializing his senior year.  Yes, my kind of senior! Haha.  He is still deciding about his path to college, but he is working and saving.  Sounds responsible to me.  Go see him at Gap!  Dislikes:  Getting up in the morning... 

   Good luck this year, Brett!
