“Amber, I have some bad news.” My mom and I had just finished talking about all the adventures Sam was getting into during their camping trip. And then my heart sank and I heard that ugly six letter word….CANCER. “Danielle has breast cancer.” I was in shock. I went numb. All I could think about […]

For this Nashville wedding at Madison Creek Farms, Jessica had a genius idea to solve the problem. Her style was so vibrant, vintage, and eclectic. I seriously love how she brought such wonderful Nashville vendors together to […]

“When is your due date?” I asked. I was 35 weeks and about to pop any day. Carolyne was around 28 weeks when she messaged me saying she was interested in an in home newborn shoot. I told her my situation and that I couldn’t quite commit to the session just in case recovery was […]

This is a first for me. With my schedule, it’s super difficult for me to photograph birth stories. As much as I want to, I can’t. HOWEVER, I was able to make an exception for this in-hospital Fresh 48 session. Ashley is a long time client of mine, pretty much since the beginning. I’ve done […]

One of the best things about my job as a wedding photographer is having my brides and grooms come back to me when they find out they’re pregnant! It’s as if the story continues. Mandy is due about 3 weeks before me. As sad as I am about not being able to do her newborn […]
