Wamble Family Portraits in Lebanon, TN

I am always excited when another photographer contacts me to take their pictures. It is the curse of every photographer who is a parent - you can't take the pictures you want of your family and be in them at the same time. It is hard to act naturally and play with your kids AND try and get a picture of it too!

When Heather Wamble of Yet to Be Photography and Design in Lebanon contacted me about photographing her family, I was flattered and delighted all at the same time.

Heather is a beautiful woman with a joyful spirit




And her husband Mike has one of those grins that lets you know he is always up to something...


And together, they make a wonderful team


I had a lot of fun hanging out with Heather, Mike and their three blonde-headed boys at Fiddlers Grove in Lebanon on Saturday morning, even though it was a little cloudy and a lot chilly!


Photographers' kids generally have a bad reputation because their parents are always sticking the camera in their faces. But Ethan, John Patrick and Luke were ALL very agreeable.


And handsome


This is my favorite shot of the boys


Aren't they a cute family?


This is my favorite family shot!


Heather, thanks so much for trusting me to capture these images of your family. I am thrilled for you because I know exactly how it feels to be in your shoes! The family images that have been created for us by other photographers are now some of my most prized posessions! Hope to ship out the remaining images very soon!

Live United Ad Campaign Photos for United Way of Rutherford County

I spent the last two days hanging out with the fabulous staff, volunteers, board members and agency representatives of the United Way of Rutherford & Cannon Counties. I am thrilled to share these images that will be used in the kickoff of their brand new "Live United" branding campaign. The next several blog posts will be my favorite shots from our two day commercial shoot. We had a blast!

I love the concept of these images - very "Gap ad," as described by my friend Amanda. Check out the slideshow below, or click HERE to view it full screen.

Another shot of Jeff & Anne's Wedding in Franklin

I am working on uploading one of my last weddings from 2007 tonight and I came across this striking image of Jeff & Anne's Wedding. I hadn't noticed it in my previous post. I love it when I find more images to fall in love with after I haven't seen them in a while.



I am only accepting a few more wedding commissions for 2008, so if you're interested let me know. I am trying hard to only accept the amount of business that I can handle appropriately now that I am balancing running a business with being a stay at home mommy too.

Hank's 6 Month Portraits

Jeremy & Jenny, Engagement Pictures in Downtown Nashville

Meet Jeremy


and Jenny


These guys chose to do their Engagement Session in front of the Flying Saucer restaurant and Union Station in downtown Nashville. The place holds special memories for them from when they began dating 6 years ago!


I was drawn like a magnet to this old train car.






The weather was gorgeous.




These two are my favorite portraits.




Then we went over to the Bicentennial Mall for the rest of the session. It is not as pretty over there this time of year as it is in the summer, so we took a few more and called it a day.




Practicing for that first dance at the wedding.


Thanks so much guys! See you soon!
