Lebanon, TN Photographer | Wilson County Fair

Sisters at the Fair

Now, I know that it’s cold outside and it’s January, and we're hoping for snow and all (well, some of us), but I couldn’t resist posting these summer fair pictures when I came across them again. The colors and these girls just make me happy! These two are sweet AND cute; so glad they did this with me. I love each season as it comes, and even though I’m eagerly watching the forecast for snow this week, I’m also waiting patiently for the warmer weather and definitely the longer days.

   This is Ariel.  She is a sophomore at Wilson Central High School.  Love that she wanted to assist in my senior model program!  She is into all kinds of things at school: Beta Club, National Youth Leadership Council, and cheer tryouts (good luck!).  She is athletic and has been cheering competitively for a while now.  Ariel will pursue a career in marine animal rescue and rehab.  I can't wait to see where her journey takes her.  That sounds so exciting!  Don't leave until you see her fabulous pictures.

Nashville Tween Photographer | Wilson County Fair

Fair Mini Session | Winfree Family

       Meet the Winfrees. These guys were so fun.  Check out the "Kiss" picture!  I love Fair sessions.  The Wilson County Fair is one of the best, and I can always count on awesome vendors and rides to give me those fab colors in pictures.  We had good  weather this year for the most part, and I'm already looking forward to it next year!  

      

 

 

Nashville Middle Tn Teen Photographer | Sunflower Field Murfreesboro, TN

Blooming Sunflowers

 

   I cannot believe I've missed this for the past couple of years!  Batey Farms in Murfreesboro, tn has the most beautiful sunflowers.  I used to do mini sessions every summer until I had no field anymore.  Hallelujah, now I've found another one!  

       SO thank you to these three for coming out at the last minute, because that's how I roll apparently.  They have grown so much since the last time I photographed them at the Wilson County Fair.  I loved the way they grabbed each other's hands when I asked them to.  Sort of like they are friends as well as siblings.  You weren't pretending about that, right y'all?  haha.  I definitely know how that is with my three.  It was hot as blazes this night, but they did great.  I love when teenagers do exactly as I say without any lip.  Not quite used to it!  Seriously Jillian, Riley, and Grant, these turned out fabulous.  Thanks for helping me out with my picture-taking obsession.

         Anyone who is ever in Murfreesboro, check out Batey Farms.  Not only do they have gobs and gobs of sunflowers, they have fresh picked tomatoes, corn, jams, and even really good peach ice cream.  Lucy and I tried it.  Scroll down to see the pictures, and next year YOU come on out.

 

 

Nashville Middle TN Senior | Brittney

McGavock High School Senior 2017

      I was so thrilled when Brittney showed up  to get her pictures taken.  I didn't know her, but I did know that she just moved here and that she went to my alma mater, McGavock!  Of course, she had NONE of my teachers because, well, I'm old.

     I would describe her as a little edgy, a little pretty, and very sweet.  I think those all those are compliments.  I'm a big believer in being your own person, which Brittney certainly is.  She definitely wasn't afraid of getting in to the water, as you can see from the creek pictures.  We won't mention the slimy bottom of the creekbed...AND we didn't see any snakes.  Definitely a plus.   I can tell she's a also a little adventurous and brave.  My kind of girl. 

     We actually went to Don Fox Park here in Lebanon for our session.  If you know this place, You totally need to walk back to the creek.  I bet half of us have never been there. It's so surprisingly pretty late in the day when the sun is going down.  So glad Brittney mentioned a creek for her senior session.  She makes the scenery that much better, too!  It was an awesome session.

           

   

Middle Tn Senior | Mt. Juliet high School | Wendy

Wendy's a Senior!

     She's ready to graduate. I keep seeing her mom's facebook posts about last prom, last color guard competition, first look at the cap and gown...*whew*

I'm almost there with my girl, but not quite.  I try not to think about it.

But Wendy, what an adventure for you!  I was in marching band, and it gave me some of the best memories.  You'll miss it, but you'll also make new memories, new friends. Your parents can't wait to see what happens next, even though it's bittersweet.  I hope you're excited for this next chapter. Onward!  ;)

Nashville Tn | Tween | Kayla

       The End of Tweendom

 

        What is that?  Tweendom?  It's the ages between about 9 and 13.  You remember.  That time when you were trying to figure out where you fit...getting used to a new you.  it wasn't all that pleasant for all of us, either! Fortunately I have good memories of being a tween. Happy school experiences (mostly), and good friends.  I think I was lucky...like this girl!

        Kayla is on the brink of being a teenager.  12 can sometimes be a difficult age.  Not for her, though.  She's super sweet, confident, and smiles easily.  I hope she'll come back to me for her 13 year old session.  A beginning to the teenage years...whole different ballgame!  ;)

 

         

 

 

 

Did I mention she's into dance?  She's such a cutie.

Thanks, Kayla, for allowing me to document this time in your life.  I think you are doing great with the 'tween' thing!
