Introducing Miss Kensley Belle Smith

I had a wonderful shoot yesterday with little Miss Kensley Belle Smith, born  June 24, 2013.  She was a healthy 7lb 11oz and 20.75 inches.  Kensley’s mom helped with posing and big sis Kaelyn helped with props and backgrounds while dad went to sleep to soothing baby ocean sounds.

Jackson Blaine Freeman – Newborn Photo Shoot

I had a wonderful photo shoot with 6 day old Jackson Blaine Freeman.  Before he was born, his baby shower was cowboy themed.  It was only appropriate that he was a little cowboy for his photo shoot.  Jackson’s dad is 1/4 Cherokee, so we also shot him in an adorable crochet headdress his mom found on Etsy.

Kristie’s Pin-up / Boudoir Inspired Shoot

Kristie is one of my all-time favorite people to work with.  Not only is she a wonderful MUA, she is also a gorgeous model.  This shoot was done prior to re-locating to California.  Kristie and I had planned to do a pin-up inspired shoot for quite sometime.  Fortunately, we were able to fit in a two hour shoot shortly before it was time for me to move.  I’m so happy we made time for this shoot, it is one of my all time favorite photo shoots.  We had one hiccup during our shoot, I got a flat tire and my husband came to the rescue 🙂

Jason Miller & Kelly Burkhalter – New Orleans Wedding

Jason Miller is an avid hunter, owner of Raven6 Studio and a producer for the outdoor channel.  He produced the award winning show “Whitetail Freaks.”  Jason has wanted to produce and pitch a wedding show to major networks, so the couple chose to make their wedding a television production too!  Jason and Kelly had one of the most out of the ordinary but absolutely extraordinary weddings I’ve ever had the privilege to photograph!

The day before the wedding Kelly & I did a bridal shoot, the next day was the wedding.  To ease the rush of getting all the photographs they wanted on the wedding day, Kelly and Jason chose to do a day after session.  They wanted to get really creative for their day after session.  We shot in front of a lucky dog stand and then traveled to a beautiful cemetery for our final shots.

View the wedding in it’s entirety here.

Beautiful Photos for the Goode Family

Good Family

Goode Family

I met with the Goode’s and their three beautiful kids at 8am in the morning.  It was a beautiful morning!  We shot outside the studio on the lawn and in the jumbo tractor tire swing.  The kids were hungry so we took a break and ate at the Shelby Forest General Store.  We finished our shoot Poplar Tree Lake in beautiful Meeman Shelby Forest, a Tennessee State Park.  See the rest of the session here.

Ashley – High School Senior Shoot

Ashley is graduating this year and was happy to have her first professional photo shoot.  She looked like a deer in headlights when the first flash went off, but quickly realized how much fun it can be!

We did a two hour shoot with four outfit changes.  Part of the shoot was done in the studio and the rest out in beautiful Meeman Shelby Forest.

Bad Girls on Beale

I had the opportunity to photograph the promotional photos for Blair Simpson and Tori Tollison’s upcoming show March 10th at the Hard Rock Cafe on Beale Street.

Their upcoming show is called “Bad Girls on Beale”, so it was only fitting that the shoot be held on Beale Street.  The weather wasn’t completely cooperating with us, It started the rain so we headed inside the Hard Rock.  Despite minor setbacks we achieved some brag worthy shots nonetheless.

They are both as talented as they are wonderful to work with.  Blair is an up and coming country music artists.  Tori Tollison is a grungy soulful rocker.  Both girls are blessed with incredible pipes and style all their own.  I really believe these two are going places and together they’ll put on one hell of a show!
