Coming soon…Carson!

Despite some storms early in the day, and the threatening looking skies that rolled in as we began our session, I had a wonderful maternity session with this sweet couple. They are anxiously awaiting the arrival of their son, Carson. Any session full of laughter and giggles is always a good session. I can tell that Carson is going to be in good hands and will have a great childhood with these two as is parents. The grounds of Iriswoods was a perfect backdrop for the session, and their hospitality is always warm. Looking forward to meeting Carson myself. Stay tuned for his newborn portraits in the coming weeks!

Paxton is turning 1

It is crazy how fast a year can go by, especially  for parents of a baby in that first year of life. Paxton is getting ready to hit that 1 year milestone, so some new portraits were needed to mark the occasion. He is a sweet and silly boy that loves to throw on the charm and make good use of those baby blues. He loves his momma and daddy and that smile light up when he’s with them. He wasn’t too sure about the cake at the end of the session, but thought he was hot stuff in his bow tie. Happy Birthday Paxton, and here’s hoping the next year is a joyful as the first!

Chris and Alyssa | e-session

I had an absolute blast on Chris and Alyssa’s engagement session as we tromped around the horse farm they work at on a beautiful, but warm, summer evening. I’m looking forward to their October wedding, and not just for the cooler weather. I’ve know Chris and Alyssa since the past October when they joined CrossFit Mt. Juliet. It has been amazing watching their journey to a healthier lifestyle and seeing the changes they’ve both made. Both are incredibly hard working, dedicated individuals and together you can just see the love they share. And being on a horse farm, we couldn’t leave out their horses, Sid and Porkchop, both of which did their part in making the portraits memorable. Congratulations Chris and Alyssa!

Tony + Bev

Wedding bells are ringing again. This time it if for my own Mother-in-law, Bev, and her fiance Tony. They met earlier this year and had an instant connection and it has been wonderful seeing the joy that has surrounded them both since. The wedding was held in Limestone, TN at Willow Creek Acres, a new wedding venue owned by Bev’s brother Steve and his wife Terri. Willow Creek is a gorgeous property with rolling hills, a lake and a beautifully constructed open air reception area built onto an existing barn. The early June weather provided bright blue skies and lots of greenery for the backdrop. It was a perfect day of friends and family gathered to celebrate the love Tony and Bev share. Congratulations you two, and my you have many happy years to come!

Justin + Soquani

Justin and Soquani’s beautiful wedding at The Lodge kicked off the summer wedding season under the threat of rain all morning. But the decision to keep the ceremony outside paid off as skies cleared as guest began arriving. I’ve know Justin and Soquani for close to two years know and was thrilled for them when he popped the question late last summer. Despite the threat of bad weather, everyone’s spirit was high the day the wedding rolled around. Soquani’s mother was in charge of the flowers and did an amazing job, as many other family members pitched in and helped with many other side projects. The Lodge was a gorgeous venue and their staff was on top of everything the couple needed. The reception was hoppin’ well into the night and was a perfect ending to an incredible day of family and friends coming together to celebrate the love of these two. Congratulations Justin & Soquani!
