Meet John, class of 2020. This senior goes to Mt. Juliet Christian Academy. He’s in the band, which I love. Plays lots of different instruments; so smart. Scroll to see which ones he brought to this session out at Cedars of Lebanon. I love it there because there are so many different places to go. He did great! And he is going to study to be a pastor after high school. Good luck, John! Congrats on your upcoming graduation, and make this senior year one to remember.

Gage’s Senior Session

Meet Gage, a senior at Coffee County High School. For his session, we went downtown in Lebanon and then to Don Fox Park, where we waded into the creek! He loves fishing and will fish anywhere. It also cracks me up how much these boys love their shoes. Scroll to see his favorite pair. Gage plans to go to community College after this year. He’s interested in helping the environment. Gage, work hard and enjoy the last year. Don’t forget to have fun!

I found this awesome blog post about advice for seniors. Check it out! It makes this mama a little sad, since I have a freshman in college.

 I can't believe it's time again for Fair Sessions.  These are some of my favorites because they're so happy!  If you need some color on your walls, these minis are for you.

It's awesome.  We act silly.  Your kids are already smiling because they're at the FAIR.  ...and it doesn't have to be kids.  It can be your family, seniors, or best friends!   You will get to see a gallery of retouched images, and you'll get to pick 15 to take home with you on a flashdrive, with unlimited printing up to 8x10.  Total cost is $250, so your regular session fee is waved.  It's also a discount on the 15 digital images.  AND you get the option to purchase any other product/digitals for 10% off regular pricing.

First of all, obviously this is a summer throwback. I just can’t resist catching up with my blogging with these two cuties. Photographing sisters at their best is awesome. I hope they get along this well at home, and always stay close. It was almost dark this night at the Wilson County Fair, which made all the colors so pretty. You girls are too cute, with equally beautiful personalities!

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.

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.

Christmas Family

I love Christmas, who doesn’t? This family made it double fun. I was so glad to be able to squeeze them into this busy holiday season. All these cousins were great; reminds me of when I was growing up. …and such a pretty background for pictures. I am thankful for them allowing me in on some of their crazy fun and love.

New Things are Happening Here!

 I love photography.  I love making these memories with you.  I know you think you'll remember this time, but you won't remember every detail.  I thought I would.  When I look at pictures of my family, my kids, all the little details come back to me.  Is it time for you to schedule a session?  
     I have been thinking of you, my client, as my busiest season is just around the corner.  I am restructuring my package options to give you more choices.  I want you to have the best experience possible with your photo session, and give you what you want with time, pricing, and service.  I'm here for you, after all.  This is the time to get in on this with me because it's a trial. New pricing and time for each session will customize it to your needs.  Do you need a senior session?  Family?  Child?  Please respond to this email to find out what new things are happening.  Now is the time during this fall season. These new changes may not last.  Make your memories now!

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!

Lebanon Tn Photographer | On the Square

Kayla's 13!

      So I have been taking Kayla's yearly pictures for a couple of years now, and I'm so glad she found me to do it!  I love those tween years before real life sets in.  Kayla is one of the most confident, happy girls I've met yet...and so cute, too!  She's into dance and her friends.  The funny thing is we have the same size feet!  Haha, I won't tell you what that is, but it makes me smile 'cuz we're both kinda on the short side.  Love it, Kayla!  We went down to the Lebanon square to do her photo session.  We always have the best time, and she is gorgeous.  Scroll down to see some of her smiling and laughing. Those are the ones I like best, although she's pretty great in all of them.

Cedars of Lebanon | Flory

 

   Oh, my stars!  These two are so cute.  Santa will have a hard time not giving them everything on their lists.  And the twirly, swirly dress Mary has on is so fun!  We had the best time taking pictures at Cedars of Lebanon with the trees and leaves.  It was the perfect backdrop.  They listened to ALL my directions and were so good.  I've watched them grow up, and I think their family is so blessed!  Scroll down to take a look at the full Christmas mini session with them.

Page High School | Darby

         Meet Darby! Class of 2018.  Page High School is lucky to have this senior.  She's also a girl after my own heart because she loves PHOTOGRAPHY!  I absolutely love the picture with her camera (scroll down; I know you want to see it).  I've known Darby's mom since college, and I'm glad to know she has three awesome kids (just like me!).  Of course, they had to have a few pictures, too.  Bring 'em on, I say.  We had a great time at the Lebanon square taking these pictures.  I love the way Darby was a natural in front of the camera, and it shows.  She is so confident.  It's good to see girls who feel good about themselves.  Keep it up, Darby!  You are fun, smart, gorgeous person!
