Recently I was given the honor of photographing a miracle. A little, tiny, adorable miracle!! A miracle that is the definition of hope, strength, prayer, and courage. That little miracle is Miss Delta… Delta Lorraine Gerhart Calderhead was diagnosed in July 2016 at 22 weeks gestation with CDH (congenital diaphragmatic hernia). She was given a […]

This past fall I was asked to do engagement photos for two people I’ve known for quite a while now. Words cannot express how stoked I was (and still am) about this session. These two are so insanely precious together! Love like theirs really shows through in the images. You can just feel it as […]

Early in the 2016 football season I was able to photograph little Connor, and his parents, when he was turning the big 3!! His dad is a HUGE TN Volunteer fan so we thought we would swing by the stadium for a few shots just out front and then we would head down to a […]

Happy New Year!! I felt it only fitting to start getting caught up on sharing TONS of images from 2016 on the very first day of the new year (even though it’s almost midnight and technically the second day!). The past 3-4 months have been such a crazy, whirlwind of business for me in every […]

You may recognize two of these faces from a recent blog post I did with two gorgeous Indian gowns. But of course we had to add Dad in there and get some fun family photos! Once they saw the sunflower fields they knew right away where they wanted their next session to take place. (and […]

In the next few blog posts you’re going to see a ton of sunflowers. For this…I’m really not that sorry! lol! I LOVE sunflowers. They are by far my favorite flower. Summer of 2015 was my first time venturing down to the fields but I was only able to do a couple small sessions there. […]

Can I just start by saying I LOVE maternity sessions!! There’s just something so sweet, intimate, and powerful about capturing a gorgeous, expecting mother. You can feel the unconditional love just pouring out of every image created. It was an absolute joy photographing Ashley and her precious family. Max was such a ham! He’s going […]

Family. It isn’t always about the people in your life who are blood related. It’s about the people who you want in your life and who want you to be in theirs. It’s the people you can count on, trust, laugh with, cry with. It’s the people who accept you as you are. Who love […]

How much fun is it to put on a gorgeous gown and feel like an Indian princess? This mother daughter shoot was so beautiful! This was my first time having the honor of photographing such detailed, cherished, Indian gowns that traveled many miles to be worn here in America. I could have spent all day […]

This summer I met the sweetest little two year old! Arabella was a dream to photograph! It’s common knowledge that two years aren’t quite the easiest to get to corporate during a photo shoot. Not Miss Arabella! She was camera ready and even gave me quite a few nice posed shots! Her big blue eyes […]
