Personal Branding for Young Entrepreneur…

  We had this talented and energetic young entrepreneur in the studio for some personal branding photographs. She needed two different styles for her various enterprises…a professional, business look and a more causal one for her skincare business.  

Sisters…

If you don’t understand how a woman could both love her sister dearly and want to wring her neck at the same time, then you were probably an only child. ~Linda Sunshine Having two sisters myself I can attest to this statement by author Linda Sunshine! Having a sister gives you a forever best friend, she knows you better than you know yourself, and…

The Little Cowboy…

This little cowboy was so excited to visit the barn and see the horses. He had everything he needed to look like a real-live cowboy…a flannel shirt, a pair of boots, and a real cowboy hat! The only thing he was lacking was a little bit of courage. You see this cowboy had never been this close to a horse before, and this horse…

Rolling on the River…

  The Mississippi River is an awesome backdrop for a photography session – especially in the afternoon with the soft golden glow of the setting sun washing over everything. This family was so much fun to be with. The brother and sister truly love each other and absolutely adore their mom! When we headed downtown to the river, we knew exactly what the mom…

Another Beautiful You …with an English Beauty

My young friend from England visited recently and wanted Beautiful You images of herself. She’s a photographer too, so she was already into posing before I even asked her to turn her head, twist at the waist, and all those other “torturous” things! We has so much fun applying makeup and curling hair and making gorgeous images!

Beautiful You…and Gorgeous Too!

A “Beautiful You” session reminds me of playing Barbies because I want the models to twist at the waist, turn their head 180˚, pull their chin out and down, twist their shoulder to the front, and smile – all at the same time! (I did ask one model if she could spin her head around like the girl in the Exorcist!) A bonus to…

Beautiful You Beauty Portrait…

This beautiful woman celebrated her birthday by having Beautiful You portraits taken. She had been in a dark place for several weeks, but after seeing her images she felt so much better about herself. We’ve all been there. We’ve felt too old, too fat, too skinny, too wrinkly, too something, but in reality no one else sees that. They only see our beautiful smile,…

Personalities Plus…

I had the pleasure of spending an afternoon at one of our local parks with three of the greatest kids – each with their very own different personality! One is quite, one is bubbly, and one is curious. Can you figure out which is which?

Away From Home…Alone

My granddaughter and I took a trip to visit family who lives about three hours away. My granddaughter was so excited to spend the night with her Nashville cousins, but when the time came to leave she and my great-niece had been plotting. They had decided that my great-niece would go back with us and spend the week. We packed her bag and were…

Simple joys…

It’s funny how little kids find the simplest things so fascinating. Common, ordinary yellow flowers that most of us walk over and step on without a second thought, become the objects of fascination and demands close examination. I don’t know if it’s the bright color, the abundance, or that it’s something to be dissected…but these treasures just can’t be ignored. This little boy, who…

Life is an adventure…

More of this cute little adventurer with his adoring parents.

Life is to be explored…

My nephew called to ask if I would take his son’s one year photos. They live out of town and only get home a couple of times a year so I agreed – this was a sure-fire way I would get to spend a couple of hours with them! This little boy was so curious! He had to check out everything in our backyard…

Take Two Boys, A Yard Full of Leaves, & A Sunny Afternoon…

More fun playing in the leaves. You can tell these two boy really love each other and have a ton of fun together.

Take 2 boys, a yard full of leaves, and a sunny afternoon…

And what you get is a whole lot of fun! I had so much fun with these two boys on a fall afternoon…tossing the football, raking leaves, and, of course, jumping in the leaves. You can tell that these two brothers have fun together no matter what they’re doing.

Could This Be The Next Justin Bieber?

At the end of September I got to attend an awesome photography workshop put on by Folio Love in Knoxville. Photographers from all over the country had the opportunity to photograph amazing models and some of the most creative, detailed sets. It gave me the opportunity  to shoot venues I would never have been able to photograph. The girls at Folio Love put together…
