Shelton Wedding | The Hermitage

The thing I will always remember most about Kathy & David’s wedding is that they were cherished by their closest friends and family.  It was evident in the speeches and toasts…every. single. one.  The stories could go on and on.  While mostly funny and sometimes touching, the underlying theme was they were surrounded by a […]

Baby | Emerson – 3 months

What a difference a few months make!  When I first met Emerson as a newborn, I knew she would be cute…but at 3 months old she is just so expressive and full of energy.  We’ve had a blast documenting her growth and capturing those special moments.  And did I mention that she is a trooper […]

Engagement | Anna + Stephen

I met up with Anna & Stephen at the Factory in Franklin on Sunday.  We decided to start our session at nearby Pinkerton Park and get some shots on the railroad tracks and the walking bridge over the Harpeth River.  The weather had cooled down a little by the time we started, but it was […]

Newborn | Meet Baby Emerson

Welcome to the world Emerson Pace Hood!  Born July 28th, 2011.  She is just about as precious as they come.  Despite, a few diaper changes and some feeding time, we had a successful session.  It was a blast getting to photograph such a wonderful little person.  Enjoy!   Ummm….I can’t hear you anymore, Mom! “See…I […]

Maternity | Kimberley at 9 months

Kimberly & Chris are getting ready to be parents any day now.  They are eagerly awaiting their first born and have the room all ready to go.  The nursery for “Baby Hood” is so cozy it almost wants to make you go to sleep, which I guess is the whole point.  Anyways, we shot some […]

Snowden Wedding | Smyrna Town Centre | Sneak Peek

Lauren & Michael Snowden were married on May 28th at Smyrna Town Centre.  It was an event filled with excitement and joyous celebration.  After the glamour of the ceremony slipped away, the room was transformed into a cozy atmosphere with wonderful accent lighting.  The DJ kept everyone on the dance floor all night as guests continued to […]

Newborn | Baby Evan

Little Baby Evan was welcomed to the world on May 17th, 2011.  He is already quite dapper with a full head of strawberry blonde hair.  He’s definitely gonna be a ladies man!! Evan and mother Meredith welcomed me into their home and were a pleasure to work with.  Even though the little guy had a […]

Engagement | Lauren + Michael

I had a great time with Lauren and Michael last week at Centennial Park.  We were scheduled to start at 5:30PM, but the weather gods were not so nice to us.  It starting pouring right as the clock showed 5:30, but they decided to hang around and wait it out.  The sky cleared up after […]
