the Doane family // Nashville, Tennessee

Sweet families and fall leaves- two of my favorite things! I recently met up with Brian and Michelle and their adorable one year old son Riley for a little fall photo session. The weather was beautiful and Riley gave me some adorable toothy smiles!

Victoria + Robert Allen // Franklin, Tennessee

Victoria and Robert Allen have family all over the US. So when they made plans to tie the knot, Tennessee was chosen as their wedding destination- and I am SO glad it was! I met with this wonderful couple and their family earlier this year to work out the details of their beautiful day. Small weddings are just so special & intimate and CJ’s Off the Square was the perfect setting for these two families to become one. Here is a glimpse into their special day-

Jothi family // Franklin, Tennessee

The temperatures are finally cooling off here in Tennessee. Fall has arrived and that means that photo sessions are in full swing! A few days ago I met up with the Hayley & Karthik in Franklin to take some photos of their sweet family. I’ve photographed them before, but sweet Isla has grown so much since our first session together! And it was my first time to meet her beautiful little sister Ivy. So much fun!

Jennifer, expecting // College Grove, Tennessee

One of the (many) nice things about living in the country is that I can practically do photo sessions in my backyard. Yesterday evening my beautiful friend Jennifer came over to capture some photos of her family of 4, soon to be family of 5. Bennett Carter will be making his arrival sometime this month! Jennifer’s pregnancy has not come without its challenges, but you could never tell by looking at her in these photos. Just lovely.

Pierce family // Grove City, Ohio

I don’t often get to travel for family sessions. But when it’s your family, oh yes, you travel. A couple of weeks ago I flew up to Ohio with my mom and my tiny photography assistant (aka my 6 month old, Charlie) to visit with our much-missed family and to capture some photos of my beautiful niece, Evy Ruth, at 6 months. She had already changed so much since we last saw her. Sitting like a champ, ridiculous head of hair, and smiles all day. Pure joy, this one.

It was so nice to be able to spend a few days there to visit and photograph our far-away family. We miss them so! Love you guys!!

Caitlyn, senior // Franklin, Tennessee

So the other day I met this girl named Caitlyn. She is a Senior at Page High School, just down the road from where I live. She is tall, beautifully blonde and remarkably smart. And this girl comes alive in front of a camera. She knows how to pose, how to “smize”. I could have taken photos of her all day long.

Asher // Franklin, Tennessee child photographer

Adorable Asher. He didn’t want to like me. But after I started making ridiculous animal noises I just don’t think he could really help himself. I can be hard to resist when you’re three years old.

Anna, senior // Columbia, Tennessee

I think I might have first met Anna when she was 3 or 4 years old. Her mother and I worked together as nurses in the local emergency room. You might say she’s grown just a little bit since I last saw her. What a beautiful girl. Anna, class of 2017. Melanie, I know you are so proud of this girl who is turning into an amazing woman.

Hudson, newborn // College Grove, Tennessee

There is a new little face in our neighborhood. He made his long-awaited arrival last week and he just couldn’t be more perfect. Add in two adorable (and adoring) sisters and there is just a whole bucket of adorable living next door to me. Welcome, sweet Hudson- we are SO glad you are finally here!

Kerri, expecting // Chapel Hill, Tennessee

Sweet baby Olivia has already been born, so I’m obviously behind on blogging this session, but it was just too gorgeous not to share! A couple of months ago I met up with Kerri and Bo at Henry Horton to capture some photos of her beautiful belly. Such a special and exciting time and she surely had that beautiful pregnancy glow. What a gorgeous mama to be.
