Colleen is a professional in the music industry here in Nashville. I’ve photographed her several times, but this time she came to me wanting something a little different…images outside of the suit and office…personal branding images she could share on social media to connect professionally with artists and potential clients. We chose Harlinsdale Farm since most of her clients are in the country music genre. It was a fun [but cold] afternoon at Harlinsdale Farm in Franklin. Even though the sun didn’t choose to join us until the very end, I love what we were able to capture.
It’s always a pleasure to shoot for The YMCA of Middle Tennessee. This Ad Campaign was photographed at the Donelson location last summer to promote their summer swim program. Here’s a few ads rolling out now, plus some of my other favorite images from the shoot…
It’s always a pleasure to shoot for The YMCA of Middle Tennessee. This Ad Campaign was photographed at the Brentwood YMCA location last fall to promote their youth sports programs. Here’s a few images rolling out in their advertising now…
It’s always fun to start seeing ads roll out after shooting a campaign. The focus of this campaign for the YMCA of Middle Tennessee is a membership drive, with an incentive for inviting a friend to join the Y and work out together. We had a great team on this shoot! More new work to come…
Always fun to see work enlarged. Here are two of the billboards in downtown Nashville…
Living in the south means you could have a 65 degree day of holiday entertaining on the porch one day, and an ice storm the next. It keeps things interesting (and planners on their toes) for sure! I enjoyed teaming up with the lovely and talented Nashville event and wedding planner, Molly Sohr of The Cedarlane and Elle Worsham of Gracious Garlands for this holiday shoot. Follow Molly’s blog and Instagram for more entertaining inspiration. Cheers!
Last month I had the privilege of photographing 15 year old singer/songwriter, Anna Grace Beatty, who’s getting ready to release her first album. It’s not often you meet 15 year olds with such passion to pursue their dream career and at such a young age. I have no doubt this young musician has a bright future ahead of her, and I can’t wait to see where her talent and determination takes her in the music industry.
I love getting to play with different color treatments to set the tone and mood for editorial and commercial work. Here are some of my favorite images from our shoot in Historic Leipers Fork and Franklin, Tennessee.

Photographers sometimes have to step out of our norm (and what people are used to seeing from us) and do something completely different to fuel our creative juices. This is one of those times for me. Such a fun day of shooting in the studio with Ashley! And a big thanks to Cameron Powell for pushing me to create something different and allowing me to use his space to do it.

Last week I had the pleasure of photographing the 2017 Nashville Symphony Fashion Show presented by Gus Mayer. The sold out show’s featured designer was Zac Posen and his Fall 2017 Collection. I chose several favorites (noted below) that I need to find an excuse to wear! They were all stunning! Country music star, Kelsea Ballerini performed. She’s adorable, bubbly, down to earth and obviously grateful to be where she is today. Two special guests attending the event were Thomas Rhett and Savannah Chrisley. Here are some of my favorite images from a fun evening in Nashville…

Another one of my favorites. I love a one shoulder dress. And this silhouette!
Another favorite. Swoon. Love the drama.
