Wilson County Photographer | Wilson County Fair Mini Sessions

WILSON CO. FAIR MINI SESSIONS—Week of Aug 16-24

 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.

   Here are the details:  You will meet me at the fair, and have about 30 minutes with me.  Yes, there are so many colors, people, and craziness! 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.

    Contact me now, so you'll get your spot.  Since it's only going on one week, and the most beautiful time for pictures is late afternoon, the appointments are limited. Just go to my 'contact' session here on my website, call me, or email me.  Can't wait to book your spot and see you at the Wilson County Fair!  

Keep scrolling to see some of my all-time favorites through the years.

Middle TN Photographer | Cedars of Lebanon State Park

Spring Session

These sweeties were so excited about this rabbit! Summer is almost here, so I thought I’d better blog this spring session. I’ve been photographing these three since forever, and love watching them get bigger. They are always so fun and energetic! Scroll down to see some cuties in action.

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!

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!

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.

Lebanon TN Photographer | Santa Sessions

Santa will be here Nov. 24th!

Santa: He's the real deal. NOT a helper. I have the privilege of hosting this big guy on November 24th 9:00-12:00. Location TBA. Your child will have 10 minutes with Santa. Bring the list. Session Fee is $50, with a minimum purchase of $75. The session fee of $50 books your spot. There are special packages of prints or digital files. Perfect for Christmas cards. There will be an option to purchase more at a discount. Also I have a few ideas for a different background this year…more of a farmhouse look. (Don't worry Coles Ferry people. He'll still be at the Christmas program!). I can't wait!!

The Bealls at the Fair

I love my Wilson County Fair sessions! Even though it’s fall, it’s still hot outside. I’m hanging on to summer as long as I can. Love these colors, and the Bealls were so fun to work with!

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 Senior Photographer | Garrett

LHS Senior

Meet Garrett.  Lebanon High School class of 2018.  Senior.  Golfer.  Cool guy!  We had a bit of an extended senior portrait session, and went to downtown Lebanon (you'll be surprised at how many awesome areas there are) and also ran over to the Country Club for some golf pictures...because that's what he's so good at.  In fact, he has signed with Cumberland University.  I'm so excited to see more of Garrett's accomplishments in the golfing world.  I keep seeing articles about him as it is!  Check it out, and scroll for some of my favorite senior pictures of him.

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.

Nashville Senior Portraits | Lebanon TN Square

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!

Lebanon, TN Photographer | Family Farm Portraits

The Miller Family Farm

    I have known the Millers for a while.  It seems like every part of each of our families has teachers in it.  I do love going out to their Lebanon, tn family farm to take pictures.  It makes me want some farmland, but I don't know if I could deal with the all the extra work!  Miss Sassy loved having her pictures taken this time.  She actually found several of the best spots.  Calhoun didn't want any part of it, as you can see if you'll scroll down.  Hilarious!  Both kids did great anyway, and I always have some funny ones to show them.  Until next time! Enjoy!

Watertown Engagement Portraits | Everlasting Pond

Jamie and Bo are getting married today!

 

   Today is the day! I just love a country outdoor wedding.  Jamie and Bo are getting married at The Everlasting Pond in Watertown.  I can't wait to see Jamie as a bride, and also get some more pictures of this venue with a wedding party...Woods, rock quarry, quaint little house for the bride and her people.  So, so pretty.  Here are some highlights from their engagement session.  Enjoy, and stay tuned for the wedding photos!  I can't wait.

Nashville Teen Portraits | Jett

Lebanon TN | My Nephew Jett

 

   Meet Jett.  Class of 2022. :)  Is that right?  Aw, I can't believe it.  He's already this old.  Jett's from Kansas, so each summer when he comes to visit I get to take his birthday pictures...and he loves it...well, his mom loves it anyway.  Haha.  He actually is very photogenic and always does a great job.  As you can see he loves baseball.  They drove here from visiting in Kentucky to have his pictures done in downtown Lebanon and on one of our middle school's baseball fields (shout-out to my hubby).  We love acting silly with these pictures, and we brought all my crew along to make him smile, which they did.  This first one cracks me up.  Maybe you can see what a lady's man he'll be in a few years.
