You’re Graduating!

Seniors, what a fun, exciting, and busy time. This is last minute because that’s how I roll. Some of you just got that cap and gown. It’s getting real. Your graduation day is going to be busy, so I’m offering special cap and gown mini sessions beforehand. You need to get these pictures anyway, and it’s so nice to get professional pictures before the rush of the day.

Class of 2019

Meet Caleb. Class of 2019! This guy’s ready to graduate from Mt. Juliet Christian Academy. At school, you’ll see him in the drama department. His session was fun and laid back at Cedars of Lebanon State Park. He’s a cool kid. I can’t wait to see him on TV in the future because it will be that or the movies. :)

Scroll down to see pics from his session with the family.

Lebanon, TN Photographer | Wilson County Fair

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.

Check them out here.

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.

Jade

Meet Jade. Class of 2019. I’ve known this girl since she and my daughter were little. Such a sweet beauty! Now she’s off to college soon. Enjoy your senior year, but know these mamas can’t take it! Seriously, whatever she does she will be happy and successful. I know it. She is one of the kindest girls. That’s her reputation. She clogs, too, and she’s pretty great at it.

You can see her here at Dollywood. Pretty awesome…

We were at Cedars of Lebanon State Park for these, and it was perfect.

Thanks, Jade for letting me take your senior pictures!

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!

Nashville Senior Photographer | Fiddler's Grove

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.

Isabella is 16!

 

         You don't realize how fast time flies until it's already gone.  I've know this girl for a while now, and she has grown up to be so beautiful and sweet...and a little silly, too, which is always a good thing.  For her sweet 16 pictures we went to the fair while it was here in town.  Luckily she has a brave and outgoing mom who asked to get into booths, sit on rides, stand by vendors...It was SO funny, and guess what?  Everyone said YES.  I loved it!  So here you'll see her eating free ice cream, being silly with the civil war reenactment guy, sitting on kiddie rides, holding a GIANT panda... I love when I see girls being adventurous.  Thanks for the experience, Isabella, and I know year 16 will be the best one yet!

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.

Nashville Photographer | Friendship Christian School Senior

Anna Kate's Senior Pictures

 

   Let me tell you how excited I was when Anna Kate said she had a VW bus.  SOOOO cute.  Best prop ever! We took some pictures at Sinking Creek Farm in Murfreesboro first, which was also awesome.  Anna Kate loves sunflowers.  Then we went to downtown Lebanon to the to the #letlovefly mural and all around for pictures with the bus. #vwbuslove!!! She is a senior at Friendship Christian School.

   I am so glad she chose me for her senior session. This girl is so brave and giving.  She is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside.  Her mission is to help girls in Africa by providing hygiene kits and health education.  She has visited with her group, and met some of these girls who otherwise would have to miss school each month, when their school time is precious.  For more information on this ministry, click here. I am so proud of her!

#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.

You are beautiful.  You have worth.  You are strong.  This is what The Empowering Project is all about.  Iddy and Oscars and I have teamed up, and it's awesome to show our community what strength and beauty look like.  These seven women have graciously let us take their pictures and share their stories with others.  Over the next couple of weeks you'll be seeing posts from us and these women on fb, Instagram, and Twitter.  Please follow the hashtag #theempoweringproject, share, and help us to spread the sunshine!  I can't wait to see where this takes us.  Special thanks to Trendz Boutique and Salon and The Beauty Room for hair and makeup.  Also can't forget Iddy and Oscar's!

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.
