It is foggy and cold outside, so that means I am inside editing away...bundled up with my puppy and a large amount of coffee. Just had to share a few shots of the adorable baby I was able to photograph last weekend. This little lady is 7 weeks old!

As I was getting set up, one of their kitties decided to test out some of my props. This friendly little guy sat in almost every basket, bowl and container I brought! :)

From the short time I got to spend with them, I quickly picked up that Lilly had her mama's sweet spirit and her daddy's love of music. The minute he started playing his guitar, we got this adorable little smile.

Looks like we may have a future rockstar on our hands! :)

Such a sweet family! Happy Thursday everyone!

Carla Maternity Session: Nashville Maternity Photography

The first time I met Carla (at Starbucks of course), the first thought that crossed my mind was that she was an absolutely adorable pregnant woman. Seriously. It made me extra excited to capture this special time for her and her husband.

For Carla's Maternity Session, we decided to start out at Radnor Lake. Challenge #1?  No parking spots available! Worried about losing daylight, I had her husband Michael drop her off so we could start shooting and he sat and waited (and waited, and waited...) for a spot. Thank goodness for patient husbands!

Challenge #2? A brief run-in with a park ranger that may or may not have involved the fence and which side of it I was standing on (woops!). Apparently fences are there for a reason...who knew? ;)

Since the park was starting to get a little too crowded (and too dark) for us, we had a quick location change and were able to relax a little. One of my favorite things about getting to work with these two was that it is very obvious how much Michael just adores Carla. He told me several times during the shoot how beautiful he thinks she is. Gotta love people in love. :) 

Work it. Serious expressions, but I love it. 

Carla, you are seriously gorgeous. I think your husband would agree. :)

Staring off into the sunset...perhaps while thinking about getting a McRib. :) Michael and Carla...had so much fun getting to know you- can't wait to meet the little one!

The Ramseys: Nashville Family Photography

Meet the Ramseys! All 7 of them! :) We had a great time wandering Peabody's campus one weekend and got some really fun shots.

Here are the Ramsey patriarchs! They came all the way from Memphis to help me keep everyone in line. ;)

Meet Mini-Ramsey's #1- Marc and Jenny! They make cute children. (See below).

And last but not least, Mini-Ramsey's #2- Jennifer and Rich. Or as I like to call them, the Kib-amsey's. (Jennifer's nickname is Kib). 

This is why I like them:

Sassy. I like it.

The one where they are really really ridiculously good looking: Nashville Engagement Photography

I think all my clients are beautiful. (Either that, or I have gotten really lucky in the good-looking subjects department!) But when I was editing these photos, I kept texting Meg to tell her how gorgeous she is. I mean, seriously. Tim, you are a lucky guy!

These two are some of our dearest friends in Nashville and it has been awesome to see their relationship progress. I have the honor of shooting their wedding in January, and I could not be more excited about it! :)

Warning. You may need to put your sunglasses on for this one. Take a look at this ring!

Happy Engagement ya'll. We love you both! :)

Happy Halloween: How to make a scary face

So, we typically have a pretty low key Halloween around our house. Although I do have a strong affinity for all things pumpkin related (both carving and baking), I don't dress up very often. We usually just hand out candy on the porch, and I repeatedly remind Hunter that giving the 15 year olds (without a costume) a piece of candy is better than getting our cars egged.

However, for those of you that get into the Halloweeny spirit, I thought I would share some scary/funny face ideas with you. Gotta love it when a kid has a sense of humor during a photoshoot. :)

Number 1: "The Lizard." Anyone's mom give them the "Your face is going to get stuck like that!" line?

Number 2: The "I got caught." (Depending on what you have just done, it can be scary indeed.)

Number 3: "The Blowfish." They are poisonous, therefore, they are scary in my book. 

Number 4: "The Scream." Even babies can get in on the scary face action.

And the Finale: "Zombie Apocalypse." Okay okay, so I had trouble with this one. "Frog face?" "This had to hurt?" I'm open to suggestions, but I think this might have been the most creative. 

Happy Halloween!

Tarrants Family : Franklin Family Photography

I had the pleasure of spending last Saturday morning with the Tarrants family in Franklin. They were such troopers and let me drag them around to 4 different locations! :) Both of their girls are adorable, and we had a lot of fun enjoying a perfect autumn day.

Three year old Katherine did great, and was kind enough to educate me on the finer points of the Lion King (fyi: apparently Mufasa is the best character) and how to make a good scary face....

Baby Anna was so relaxed the entire day...and (once we got her to look at the camera) we got some great shots! :) 

Such a fun family! Happy Wednesday everyone!
