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.

It was a pleasure photographing Nashville top designer, Jonathan Savage’s personal home decorated for the holidays. His Christmas tree was appropriately dressed in shades of his branded Savage Interior Design orange with Hermes bags under the tree for extra holiday cheer. His pup Artie was even in the holiday spirit for our shoot. Cheers!HDP-SavageChristmas-1crop_-WEB.jpg

15 Year Old Singer/Songwriter, Anna Grace Beatty

Last month I had the privilege of photographing 15 year old singer/songwriter, Anna Grace Beatty, who’s getting ready to release her first album. It’s not often you meet 15 year olds with such passion to pursue their dream career and at such a young age. I have no doubt this young musician has a bright future ahead of her, and I can’t wait to see where her talent and determination takes her in the music industry.

I love getting to play with different color treatments to set the tone and mood for editorial and commercial work. Here are some of my favorite images from our shoot in Historic Leipers Fork and Franklin, Tennessee.

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.

The Hines Family Snow Photo Session [Franklin TN]

Holly was one of the first people I met in my neighborhood after moving in. I felt like I was living in a fishbowl when we moved into our house, so someone referred me to her for window shades and she hooked me up with some privacy! Since then she’s taken me to my first Downtown Franklin First Friday Art Crawl and we’ve worked some here in the neighborhood together. Holly’s a Franklin native that really knows how to make the new girl feel welcome! She’s a sweetheart and her kids are delightful too!

I loved spending a little time with this cute family on our first snow day in Tennessee.

Anna’s Photo Session in the Snow [Franklin, TN]

While living in Birmingham, we rarely had snow for photo shoots in its pristine white powder, and when we did, it was mostly ice and just too hilly and dangerous to get anywhere with my camera. Since moving here to Franklin, TN, I’ve hoped for more opportunities to shoot in the snow since my neighborhood is mostly flat with beautiful parks, creeks and farms nearby. I got my first opportunity yesterday. It looked like a winter wonderland here. Temperatures were in the teens, but Anna and I braved the cold to have a little fun. And oooooh how I loved the light from all that white. Snow is the perfect natural reflector!

When Anna walked up to meet me with her crystal blue eyes, wearing a cute CC beanie and the perfect pink lips to match her Hunter booties, I knew it was going to be a really great shoot.
