A while back I had been asked by a few people to do newborn shoots and I wanted to expand my newborn prop collection so I asked my super talented SIL Joanna to make me this baby nest. It is SO cute!! Doesn't little baby Kennedy look adorable in it?! Joanna makes a ton of different items from headbands, to hair barrettes and scarfs. If you'd like to order anything from her, check out her website. Thanks Joanna for helping me with this. I promise to put it to good use. :)

Oh man this little girl is as sweet as they come. I had the pleasure to spend some time with Miss Kennedy Louise when she was just a few days old. I love newborn shoots! They take a little time but then it's an excuse to snuggle and hug them. Keena I hope you enjoy your preview. Your daughter is the sweetest!! :)

This beautiful woman is Mary Dawn. Mary Dawn has been a friend of mine since I worked for a dental office here in Nashville. I think it's been about 2 years since I've worked there. My how time flies, but I just LOVE the people there and am so glad I've kept up with some of them. Mary Dawn has recently been diagnosed with breast cancer and will start chemotherapy very soon. We've been talking about doing her pictures since I worked at the office but we just never made it a priority. I am so glad I could come spend the morning with you Mary Dawn. You are such a light in my life and I just appreciate all your positivity. Life is too short to take it for granted. You are a beautiful and caring woman and I am so glad to know you. Enjoy your preview!
This is art that Mary Dawn makes. Isn't it fantastic!?
Caden came along on this shoot too. He just wanted to say hello. Happy Thursday!

I had the honor to be there immediately after baby Kennedy's birth. I felt so overjoyed at the spirit in the air. Kennedy you are so beautiful, Kaleb you were such a happy, excited new dad, and Keena, you are superwoman!! I am so happy for your family! Enjoy your preview.
These pictures melt my heart. Notice Kaleb's holding his daughter's hand. I didn't even notice it at the time when I shot the picture but oh how sweet.
Look at the love here. I love these photos!! Keena's first time holding her daughter. Is any one else's womb hurting? No? Just mine? :) I am reminding myself that my son isn't even a whole year old yet.
Sweet baby girl.

I am way behind on my blogging for clients, but I did want to share these photos with you. Keena has been such a great friend and client of mine and she is about to have this baby girl. Infact, I will let you in on the know that I am going to the hospital today to shoot her delivery! So excited for them! Enjoy her preview pictures. What a beautiful mama!

Aren't they a beautiful couple?!
These two cats moved to Nashville in August this past year for lawschool. And now Mr. Brandon is done with his first year and they are about to be parents. Oh how time flies! I am just so excited for them!! I had a great time on your shoot, and even though I was a little sweaty and just a titch worried about 'glamour shots' :) I had a blast and hope you guys enjoy the pictures. But really, this little dude is so incredibly lucky to have you both as parents!
I'll leave you with this last one. Enjoy your preview guys. And congrats again on the baby!! Happy Tuesday!

In honor of Mother's Day, I wanted to share some photos I took at a baby shower I attended recently. I have quite a few friends who are about to be mothers in the next month. Some first time mothers, some it's their 4th time around, but it's all very exciting and each deserve ample amounts of appreciation for what they are about to do.... Birth is probably the very hardest thing I have ever done. It was painful, trying, sweaty, and just down right difficult. But even with all that pain, giving birth was the very best thing I have ever done. The most selfless thing I have probably done, (although at the time it probably didn't feel selfless because I just wanted that baby out!) :) On top of everything else, giving birth to that perfect little person leads you into motherhood. And motherhood is what we are celebrating today. Honoring the mother's who have shown us all the way. I applaud you all for your sleepless nights, for your feedings around the clock, for your chauffeuring to and from school or dance or soccer practice. There are no road maps in motherhood, but as far as I am concerned the world is still a wonderful place to be. 'All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.' - Abraham Lincoln
Have a wonderful Mother's Day!

Recently I was asked to do a mini session with miss Emma who had just been baptized. Isn't she so beautiful?! She just has such a sweet spirit. She is a dancer and is in the performance of Cinderella at MTSU this weekend. Go Emma! I am sure you are a beautiful ballerina and will do awesome in your performance. In other news, I am a little behind with my blogging, so hopefully I can get caught up soon cause there's good stuff to share. Until then, enjoy Emma's preview pictures!
