I am so glad that Liz and I crossed paths while working at the local YMCA. Recently she asked me about doing a family session and I was over the moon about it! We met at a local park and had a blast as her precious boys laughed, wrestled, and explored. It was such an endearing time.
This year’s fall minis were held at the lovely Bottom View Farm during their Fall Festival. I brought my youngster and husband a few hours before the sessions started so we could play. There was so much to do! Ice cream, hayride, pumpkin patch, jumping pillow, slides, etc. By the time I took Micah’s pictures, he was all sweaty. Oh well, I guess I truly captured the essence of a boy on a farm. Thanks to all the lovely families that came out! It will be super fun to do this again next year.
Summer can be a beautiful season and now that we are in the beginnings of fall I wanted to share this last summer session. Summer is often full of picnics, star-gazing, and creek-wading. I mean, why not through a family heirloom (i.e. gorgous antique chair) into the mix as well? I don’t have too many clients that have a vision, but Lacresha did with the red chair and, as you can see, her vision rocked! I love it when my clients want to implement a piece of themselves into the session. Goodbye summer, until we meet again…
I am excited to share a few of these gems with you! This summer I second shot a wedding with Chesley Summar Photography. It’s always fun to second shoot and get to know other local photographers. I have done quite a bit of second shooting and I loved how laid back Chesley was in letting me just be, well, me. Poor thing was stung twice during the family portraits after the wedding, but we had fun nontheless. The couple, Rilla and Andrew were laid back as well. They just enjoyed their day as it went along. They are a sweet couple who love animals (they’re both veterinarians) and of course, each other. I hope to share the rest of the photos from their day soon. Until then, enjoy!
Get ready for your heart to melt into a puddle. AJ contacted me awhile back about the possibility of photographing his and Maria’s proposal. We had to come up with a plan so that Maria wouldn’t be suspicious and everything would go smoothly. AJ decided he wanted to propose on the walking bridge in downtown Nashville, TN. So, I arrived a little early and did my best to act like a tourist who was just taking pictures of the skyline. I think I pulled it off pretty well. We couldn’t have hoped for better weather, either! The weather was perfect. The days preceeding the shoot were hot and muggy so we really lucked out. As you can see from the pictures, Maria was beside herself with happiness and AJ was beside himself with joy. There was a lot of laughter and love on the Nashville pedestrian bridge that summer evening. Congratulations AJ and Maria! I wish you the best!
