Brentwood, TN Home by Jonathon Savage Interior Design [Nashville Lifestyles At Home Magazine Cover Story, Spring Summer 2017]

Savage Interior Design, was recently named Best Design Firm by the Nashville Lifestyles’ Home Awards, and I was able to see Jonathon Savage’s incredible talent first hand, while shooting one of the Brentwood Homes he designed. The images of this lovely home are featured in the current issue and on the cover of Nashville Lifestyles At Home magazine.

It’s a real testament to Nashville and its friendly, welcoming and encouraging creative community, that I was given the opportunity to shoot my first cover for one of Music City’s magazines after living here only 8 months. I’ve always enjoyed shooting editorial work, especially for my home town. It’s such a great way to really get to know the city where you live work and play and the people and places that make it unique.

Be sure to pick up a copy of Nashville At Home on newsstands to read the story about this Brentwood beauty.

A little something new from the studio…

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.

Beautiful Homewood Remodel by Twin Construction [Featured in Birmingham Home & Garden magazine May/June 2017]

It’s always a pleasure to shoot for my friends at Twin Construction in Birmingham, AL. This home was especially fun to photograph, since I know Rachael, the owner and love her personal style. Laurie Fulkerson, interior designer for Twin, did an exceptional job capturing and bringing Rachel and Dax’s style and personalities into the details of the home design. My favorite elements? The incredible black crocodile wallpaper in the study (slight obsession), the luxurious blue velvet sofas in the living room, the butlers pantry filled with natural light, the steel folding doors that open the dining room onto the screened porch for indoor/outdoor entertaining and finally the perfectly organized master bedroom closet with lighted shelving. There’s so much more…Pick up a copy of Birmingham Home & Garden to read the story behind this amazing Homewood (Edgewood) remodel.

Nashville Symphony Fashion Show Featuring Zac Posen & Kelsea Ballerini

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…

Newly Goods [Nashville Lifestyles Magazine, February 2017]

Newly, is a Nashville based eCommerce venture created by five local entrepreneurs. Their home products are 100% recycled with clean and modern styling. I photographed the owners and some of their products for an article in Nashville Lifestyles Magazine‘s February 2017 issue. I’m thrilled to be shooting for my new hometown magazine after living here for only 6 months and grateful for the opportunity to get to know Nashville even better through my lens.

You can read more about Newly’s mission in the article here.HDP-NL-Newly-12_-WEB.jpgHDP-NL-Newly-8.jpgHDP-NL-Newly-18_-WEB.jpgHDP-NL-Newly-21_-WEB.jpgHDP-NL-Newly-26_-WEB.jpgHDP-NL-Newly-28_-WEB.jpgHDP-NL-Newly-1.jpg

Sasha, Real People Model Portfolio

I met Sasha this past summer, while in France, shooting some work for her father, author Larry Taunton. She’s originally from Ukraine, was adopted by the Taunton family from an orphanage there and became a U.S. citizen 7 years ago. You can read her amazing story, in The Grace Effect, the book written by her father. She’s a beautiful girl inside and out, whose joy is contagious!

This past fall, Sasha came to Franklin for us to shoot her portfolio and a few months later signed on as a model with Real People agency in Birmingham, AL. I can’t wait to see her career take off!
