Grant – Middle Tennessee Newborn Photography

This is one of the most beautiful babies I’ve ever had the pleasure of photographing. Grant captivated us with his perfect little pout and beautiful smile. And I couldn’t resist his fuzzy blonde hair! His adoring big sister was so excited to have a little brother. I loved the bond that they shared! And I totally gushed at Grant’s tiny fingers holding on to his sister’s arm!

My absolute favorite from our session was Grant’s little smile while wearing the kitty hat. Does it get any cuter than that? I always love doing the froggy pose with newborns-and Grant’s cheeks were the best for that picture! Here are just a few others from Grant’s newborn session. Enjoy!

Tarek – Franklin TN Baby Photographer

Meet Tarek! What a little heart breaker! We had a blast in the studio together! He was so great for the camera! Lots of smiles and so patent through the outfit and posing changes! Little model indeed! We had so much fun as he payed with the props while I got the shots.


I always say it’s impossible to pick a favorite image from a session. And this one is no different! I love the ones up close showing off Tarek’s beautiful big eyes! But the one’s where you can tell he is just having a blast playing are also so special! Capturing the joys of childhood! So much curiosity as he explored the studio and props! And so many smiles! Do you have a favorite from this session? let me know in the comments!

Benjamin 4-8-12 First Year Baby


Oh little Benjamin, you are just as delightfully chubby as your big sister was at your age!  These two babies have shown me some of the cutest rolls over the years, and some of the most adorable little smiles and expressions to-boot.  I just love getting to see them!


We’ve been trying to get big sister Emma in on a few shots since Benjamin’s newborn session, but poor girl had been sick for both his newborn session and his 4 month photo session.  I remember pouting a little bit each time.  It’s such an honor to watch these kids grow but I had not seen little miss Emma since her since her 2 year old photo session, but she finally made it in for big guy’s 8 month debut!  We got some absolutely adorable shots of them together.  It is clear they love each other so!


So many cute shots from this session! Take a look!

The Legacy Of Abigail Grace


Today is the first day of Trisomy 13 awareness month and is very much a sobering day for me. And I wanted to share a little bit about why with you today.

A year ago today, sweet little Abigail Grace was born and made a bigger impact on the world in that one day than many make in their entire lives.

He parents, Nick and Mellissa, are a couple that my husband and I greatly admire and look up to. We met them in a class at our local gym. They are both local high school teachers and are so incredibly strong and inspiring in their marriage and their faith! They had been letting God decide whether they would have more children for years before finding out they were pregnant with Abigail. Their excitement was contagious and we were so excited to celebrate this little one with them!

The beginning of their pregnancy seemed normal, and healthy, and just so full of joy! About half way through the pregnancy they learned that their sweet little Abigail was struggling. She was diagnosed with Trisomy 13. They held onto hope that they could meet her and spend time with her for a few days or even just a few hours!

On March 1st, 2016, little Abigail Grace passed away in utero. Mellissa was induced and delivered Abigail Grace. I was able to go to the hospital that day and take some images of her tiny body with her mom and dad. And even though they may have never heard her cry or seen her wriggle in her swaddled blanket, she was so incredibly loved. There was more love in that room for that little girl that I even have words to express.

We had a beautiful memorial service for Abigail. And Mellissa’s words during the service are ones that I will never forget. She spoke of the things that her daughter accomplished without ever even experiencing life outside the womb. Little Abigail grace made an impact like no other. She helped people to see the world differently. To open their hearts. And she caused a stir in people that nothing else ever could have. Little Abigail Grace left a legacy and impact that those that are blessed to live long lives could only dream of. We all sent balloons off for the sweet little girl.

Today marks one year since that heartbreaking day in the hospital. And also the start of Trisomy 13 awareness month. It’s still hard, a year later. But I am so thankful for the opportunity to know and love this family and their sweet Abigail Grace!

Oak Nine Month Session – Nashville Milestone Photographer


I love milestone sessions. To see these little babies grow up so fast, it’s amazing! I photographed Oak’s newborn session, 3 month session, and 6 month session! In each one you see his littler personality grow more and more! Oak was so much fun! He did so great! He had a blast playing around and being adorable!


There were so many fun shots! But I really especially love the one of him holding mom and dads hands! He is so happy and so loved! But the one of him playing with his giraffe is also adorable. As is the one cuddled up with mom. Such a great shoot with so many amazing photos! What are your favorites from this session? Let me know in the comments!
