Outdoor Living and Entertaining at its Finest, in Nashville’s Belle Meade Neighborhood [Published Nashville Lifestyles Magazine & Nashville At Home]

It was a pleasure photographing this stunning 12,000 square foot French Regency, Belle Meade estate designed by the late Nashville architect, Edwin A. Keeble. You can see the interior of this beautiful home in a previous issue of Nashville Lifestyles and on my blog post here. Now, take in this home’s amazing outdoor living spaces designed by the talented Gavin Duke of Page Duke Landscape Architects, and featured in the spring/summer 2018 issue of Nashville Lifestyles At Home and on the cover. No doubt this home was designed for entertaining.

Alabama Chanin Fashion Story [Birmingham Magazine Weddings, February 2018]

Hand sewn garments, quality focused, responsibly produced, rich in tradition, and created in Alabama. THIS was a fun project to shoot. If you ever find yourself near Florence, Alabama, stop by the Alabama Chanin factory, browse their organic garments and home goods, then sit down for a bite of lunch at The Factory Café. So much southern goodness created by Natalie Chanin, right there in my home state. Read the full story in the current issue of Birmingham Weddings MagazineHDP-BhamMag-AlabamaChanin-53_-WEB.jpg

Rachel & Alex’s Downtown Nashville Engagement Session

I had fun getting to know these two on a perfect fall day. We started their Engagement Session at Centennial Park, because several months ago, Alex flew in town, surprised Rachel there and asked her to marry him on the steps of the Parthenon. From there we made our way to the Shelby pedestrian bridge downtown. Rachel won’t be living in Nashville after they get married, so she wanted to capture this beautiful city in their images since it’s an important piece of their story.

Caroline & Daniel’s Portrait Session – Piedmont Park, Atlanta, GA

I had the pleasure of photographing Caroline and Daniel’s Tuscaloosa, AL Engagement Session and Birmingham, AL Wedding several years ago. We had the best time together! After the wedding, they moved to Atlanta for Daniel’s job. Earlier this year I got an email from them asking me to photograph them with their pup at Piedmont Park to document a city that’s now also part of their story. How sweet is that?! I couldn’t say yes fast enough. I’m thankful they want me to keep capturing milestones in their lives because they really are the sweetest! And, we were blessed with some amazing fall color in the park that day.

The Levin Family

A few years ago I photographed the Levin family at their beautiful Lake Martin home. So, I was excited when they asked me to photograph them again as their sons, daughter in laws and granddaughters all gathered at their home in Birmingham for Thanksgiving. The Levins are such kind people with adorable kids/grandkids. Clearly they have a great deal to be thankful for!

Highlights from 2017 [Birmingham, AL] Fall Portrait Mini Sessions

Every year I enjoy heading back to my hometown of Birmingham for my annual weekend(s) of Fall Portrait Mini Sessions. It’s fun to recconect with loyal clients who, over the years, have become friends as I’ve watched their children grow up through my lens. I also enjoy meeting new clients. Fall Mini Session dates and online booking is announced each year the first week of August, so mark your calendars to grab your spot. Here are some of my favorite images from the Birmingham sessions. And, you can see the Franklin, TN Mini Sessions here. HDP-Dennis-4_-WEB.jpg

Highlights from 2017 [Franklin, TN] Fall Mini Sessions

Happy New Year! Christmas cards have all been mailed, opened and posted on the fridge. Gifts have been exchanged and holidays have been celebrated. Bowl games have been watched, the ball has dropped, and now I can share highlights from my Fall 2017 Mini Sessions in Franklin, TN and Birmingham, starting with Franklin sessions that I shot in historic and quaint Leipers Fork. I will follow up with a separate post for Birmingham portrait sessions.

Kids and family portrait sessions are how I started my business 15 years ago, so it’s always fun to shoot what began it all for me. This year, there were new clients and returning clients in front of my lens…so many beautiful families, kids, couples and pups! Mark your calendars for the first week of August when I will announce Fall 2018 Mini Sessions dates on social media and online booking through my website. In the meantime, here are some highlights from Fall 2017 in Franklin. And, you can see Birmingham, AL Fall Minis here.
