Lebanon, TN Photographer | Cap and Gown Mini Sessions

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.

Just meet me Saturday, and we’ll take a few pictures. It won’t take long. You’ll get 3 digital files that you can print up to 8x10. Easy and done. 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!!!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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

   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.
