My Blog bio picture

    You found me! I started business in September 2009 after working with newborns for 6 months but wanting something more. I wanted the freedom to flex my creative muscle and also do more than just newborns! Almost 6 years later I'm back at where I started, specializing in newborns but adding kids and families in there too :) I have retired from weddings and workshops (which I started teaching in 2011 across the country) now that we are expecting baby #5! Ever since the day I started, even before calling myself a business, I have worked at bettering myself through various mediums of continuing education in my field. I believe that no matter how long you've been perfecting your craft, no matter who you are, you are never done learning, and you will never know everything :)

    I'm a mother to 4 beautiful little girls, and have been married to my high school sweetheart since July 2009. I am a mother, and I am a photographer. But I am not a "mom with a camera". I am a photographer who also has children ;) I take my job- my CAREER, very seriously and respect the industry in everything I do. I'm also a pretty bad blogger, so that will explain why it's constantly out of date, but I try!! :) I am no longer taking on new clients as I attempt to restructure in order to spend more quality time with my kids while they're little. Thank you for understanding <3 Visit my website or connect with me on Facebook to stay up to date with session sneak peeks and vital information. Thanks for stopping by!


Nashville, TN Newborn Photography Workshop {Newborn Posing and More Workshop June 2015}

This post has been edited to be moved up in the blog so that it’s the most recent published- originally published July 2014:)

I polled you guys and you answered- and LOUDLY! So Nashville, I’m coming to you!
Each class is limited to 5 photographers to create an intimate and nurturing learning environment. No fighting with anywhere from 7-11 other photographers to see, hear and be heard- yes, I have seen other classes advertised before with 12 photographers and ONE teacher- to me that’s crazy! With my 5:1 workshops, you’re promised to get the time and attention you need to truly LEARN, and walk away exhilarated and ready to apply new techniques to your business as you see fit!

2015 workshop tuition has been set at $1000.00. This rate has been carefully calculated not only based on travel costs, studio rental, meals and included take-home items, but the value of the education itself. You will be learning EVERYTHING I have learned the hard way through blood, sweat and tears over what will be 6 YEARS of being in business. We will be shooting 2 full-length newborn sessions!

This workshop has been set for:
Friday, June 5th, 2015 at 8:00am – 1 seat recently available- full payment due to book
Wednesday, June 3rd, 2015 at 8:00am- SOLD OUT


At: Studio Berry Hill in Nashville, TN.
Classes will last approximately 10 hours.

At this point, the full balance is due to book your seat. Payments will be accepted via Paypal or credit card!

Missy Wilson - If you decide to open up a 2nd class, I would be seriously interested!!!!!! Love your work!!!!!

Sam & Nichole’s Maternity Session

I’ve known Sam for YEARS and met Nichole back in 2011 when I photographed their wedding (and then got to photograph their legal ceremony in NYC in 2013! It was awesome!! Central Park!!) Now these AMAZING, kind, loving and huge-hearted women are going to be parents in just a few weeks. I’m so beyond excited…we can’t wait to meet you baby Clifford!! You’re going to have an incredible life with these amazing moms!

Julie - What beautiful photos. Congratulations!

Baby Dante

I first met Melanie and Eric back in 2011 when they booked their wedding with me through a friend’s referral. In 2012, I photographed their beautiful wedding only 2 weeks after giving birth to our third daughter, Avalyn. While I missed my little girl, it was an incredible day with a lot of wonderful people:)3 years later, I had the honor of photographing their first born son, Dante. When Melanie got ahold of me last year to book a 1 year plan for this baby, I was beyond ecstatic! She brought some goodies for him, items from when she was little, some things from his nursery, etc. We didn’t get to use them all, as Dante was a little stinker for a while and wouldn’t sleep- but once he did, he sacked and I got as much as I could before he woke up again a little bit later. We got through all the poses, just not all the props:)I think we are going to use some of them during his 6 month! Check out this sweetie. He was a big boy, too!! 13 days old and he felt like a 3-4 weeker to me. Lol!!:)


Colton is back and is 6 months old!

Colton came back to see me- another 3 1/2 hour drive each way for them! I can’t even tell you how much I appreciate all of my clients, but ones that drive like this just blow my mind. Thank you so very much! You have no idea what it means to me.

He did a lot of smiling, and a whole lot of spitting up and ruining his clothes, LOL. We recreated the Monsters, Inc from his newborn session too!
