Colleen – Personal Branding Shoot in Franklin, TN

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.

Advertising Campaign Shoot for YMCA of Middle Tennessee

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…

A Family Weekend at Cottonwoods Hunting Lodge

October is one of my favorite months of the entire year. My birthday also happens to be at the end of the month and I can honestly say I never remember it being rainy on my birthday. It always seems to be sunny with fall color all around me. So, when our dear friends invited us to their hunting lodge for the weekend I was thrilled to get some rest and relaxation during my busy season and enjoy the great outdoors with my family. The dads hunted, the moms took run/walks on the long country roads, the boys fished and shot BB guns, and the tween girls rode around in the golf cart listening to music. And when night came, we made smores around the fire pit. Even though it was supposed to be an ‘off weekend” for me, I brought along my camera to capture some of our memories and a few family portraits since the weather was so perfect. Here’s a few images I thought I would share with you…such a beautiful and peaceful place!

Love this of my beautiful and sweet friend Kelly. We met about 17 years ago through our husbands at the gym and have been dear friends and workout buddies ever since. She’s truly one of the most thoughtful people I know. And, she loves red wine so I had to grab one of her with glass in hand.

And since Kelly and I don’t have many photos together, my daughter grabbed my camera and took some of us together. I think Olivia did a great job!

Baby Durham at Home

No, we are not related, but I love that we share the name. I photographed Abby and Neal’s Shoal Creek wedding as second shooter with my friend Stacy, so I got to see her as a bride, and now as a mom. And, on both occasions she was beautiful, graceful, calm and relaxed.

Here are some of my favorite images of this sweet family at home just a few days after Durham was born. What a cutie!

The Lockhart Family

Fall is such a beautiful time for portraits and the Lockharts had amazing fall color for their session. They specifically requested a railroad location, so I met them at Ross Bridge for our little adventure. They even brought along the family dog, who I must say, was a natural in front of the camera…
