Chris Janson Days Afield & Opry Nights – Cover Story Shoot for Covey Rise Magazine, October 2019 Issue

Several months ago I had the opportunity to photograph a day in the life of Chris Janson and family at their farm here in Franklin, TN, then later that evening backstage before his performances at the Grand Ole Opry. Kelly and Chris Janson were kind and gracious hosts as we spent all day on their land, in their home and in their dressing room at the Opry getting a peek inside their life as country music artist and manager juggling celebrity life with real life.

Watching Chris and his son Jesse fish together reminded me of something my husband has always told me about his time hunting with our son…”The outdoor lifestyle is never just about the activity. So many real and meaningful conversations about life happen around a pond, in a field and in the woods.” It was clear that his outdoor experiences greatly influence and feed his creativity as an artist. It was a pleasure to see more of his story through my lens.

Don’t miss the behind the scenes video of our shoot on the Janson farm at the end of this post. Such Good Vibes and a fun day on the job! Thanks to the fine folks at Covey Rise for the assignment. It’s a privilege to have my images in such a beautiful publication.

Here’s a Behind The Scenes video from our cover story shoot at the Janson family farm in Franklin, TN.

The Clegg Farm (Published in Birmingham Magazine, June 2015)

Days like this one, when my job consists of spending a beautiful May morning riding around on a Polaris at a private farm shooting for Birmingham Magazine…well, I just want to pinch myself. What could be better than being outside, meeting new people and getting the grand tour of a well designed farmhouse with sprawling views of the lake and hunting land? Not much.

The Clegg’s home was designed by the talented team at Adams-Gerndt with interiors by Defining Home. And it’s no surprise that I loved the deep teal chairs in the living room. Yeah, I wanted to take those home.

Come along with me and take a tour of this refined rustic and peaceful retreat…
