George | Franklin Newborn Photographer Nashville Newborn Photographer

Meet George. OH MY! He was such a sweet little guy to photograph – the second time around. Newborns are new. Sometimes new things have little quirks. George did and it was gas which is normal. So when I get a baby with an unhappy tummy I just reschedule at no extra charge of course. The second meeting was quick and we got most of these hat images. Both he and his parents were so super sweet and I hope to work with them again in the future. Can you guess what George’s dad does?



As a thank you George’s parents will receive a special gift when his blog post receives 25+ comments.

The Black Box Workshops | Nashville Photographer

Are you a MOMogRAPhHER? 

Finally after being asked many times over the years I am offering a mommy camera class. Not only that but these Little Black Box Workshops will expand into art and crafting. However first we will get together to chat about your DSLR (the little black box). We will talk about ISO, shutter speed, aperture and how they all collide to create a great image and composition. It will be a creative hands on learning experience that will be followed up with homework assignments, critique and access to private FB group.

Chase | Franklin Newborn Photographer

I can’t believe this session got lost in the ToBlog folder…actually I can now that I’ve cleaned it up.  This little guy was such fun to photograph. I will say he was not a fan of the studio portion of the session. So with rescheduling we got a perfect evening and could use the location from his mom’s maternity shoot. You can see Chase’s family’s maternity session here. I love how everything worked out to get these gorgeous images in the end. Enjoy!



As a thank you Chase’s family will receive a special gift when his post gets 25+ comments.

A New Journey | Franklin Newborn Photographer

I met this sweet couple last month and we had such a fun session exploring downtown Franklin. They are from sunny California but they find our little town a refreshing change from Cali so this session was a perfect fit! This session was to give them a set of images to use in their adoption journey. I feel so blessed that I could do this for them and truly capture the love they have for each other and want to give to another life. Enjoy their images and wish them much luck and love in their adoption journey.
