You don’t meet too many professional models that are about to turn 2, but I’m pretty sure I did this past week when I worked with this little guy. Ryan will be turning two this weekend and he was just a little rock star when it came time for his portraits. He was more than happy in front of the camera and just soaked up the attention and gave off big smiles through out the morning. He also wasn’t too bad behind the camera as he loved coming over to me and looking through the camera and pushing the buttons. I’m so glad I had the opportunity to meet this kid, and I look forward to seeing more of him, along with his little brother, who will be arriving later this summer!
I love meeting new people and becoming a part of creating memories for them to hold on to through the years. I had the great opportunity to meet this sweet young family when we came together to shoot some portraits of their oldest son Jack, who just turned two last month. Of course we took the chance to get some family portraits and a few of little sister, Isabelle while we were at it. Jack is a nothing short of the Energizer Bunny trapped in the adorably handsome body of a little boy. He is on the go non-stop and grinning the whole time with Dusty the airplane in one hand and a toy school bus in the other. Jack’s dad is preparing to be deployed, so it was extra special to get some portraits of the two of them together and the love they share.
In addition to watching so many of these babies grow, I love watching families grow. It is always so thrilling to get a phone call from a family I’ve worked with in the past with the news that another little one is one the way. This was the case recently with this wonderful family who I’ve worked for in the past when their two boys were born. This time around though, they mixed things up and brought a little girl into their boy-dominated world. Meet Emerson, a sweet girl who is going to love the attention of her big brothers, Jackson & Mason. Oldest brother Jackson was so tender with her and kept telling her it was going to be alright when she cried during a diaper change. I think she is going to be alright with these boys…
I recently had the opportunity to take part in a fun, covert mission of shooting a proposal. Troy was planning a romantic evening full of surprises and wanted his proposal to his girlfriend, Kline, documented. Troy is a builder here in Nashville and they are in the midst of building a house overlooking downtown. On their way to dinner, they stopped in at the house to check on something and he succeeded in surprising Kline with his set up of candles, wine and a photo book of their relationship in the room that will be their future bedroom. She was thrilled with the book, and even happier when Troy dropped to a knee and proposed. After some time to soak it all in, we went up to their top floor deck with a beautiful view of the Nashville skyline for some portraits to mark the occasion. Congratulations Troy and Kline!
