Music Inspired Fashion Shoot, Nashville TN

I get so excited for opportunities to shoot personal projects, and this one that has been spinning around in my head ever since moving to Nashville. As soon as I mentioned it to my talented friends Kerri Bunn and Mary Beth Wetzel, they were on board. As creatives, we are usually busy with client work and don’t have time to shoot what inspires us personally, but when we do find a morsel of time, we jump on it.

After moving to Nashville from Birmingham, I realized very quickly that people who aren’t from here do not have an accurate idea of what locals wear to music events. Their perception is that everyone in Nashville wears stonewashed denim, western bedazzled shirts, cowboy boots and cowboy hats to everything. So, to address that misconception our team pulled together a shoot from high-end Nashville boutiques to tell the story of fashion for music events from a local’s perspective.

I’m thrilled to finally share this shoot inspired by music and photographed at a Nashville indie recording studio. Side note: I have an old RUN DMC t-shirt just like the new one used in our shoot…I bought mine years ago…it’s faded and old and I love it…and sometimes I get to wear it if my daughter isn’t already wearing it herself. It’s tricky.

Many thanks to these amazing Nashville and Franklin boutiques who partnered with us on this shoot.

I loved everything about this shoot and our amazing team. I’ve worked with Hair & Make Up Artist, Celine Russell, many times and it’s always a pleasure. Her work is flawless. This was my first time working with stylist, Mary Beth Wetzel and wow! Can’t wait to work with her again. She’s a mover, shaker and beautiful shoot maker! Getting the cover was just the cherry on top!
