One Year Smash Session for Maylena

Maylena was one of my Newborn Sessions and now she is turning One Year Old and she's ready for her first Fiesta!  Curly black hair, beautiful skin, and a beaming personality.  Such a perfect little girl!

This was a new set and she was the first one to be in a beach session at my studio.  I think it turned out great!  I've had the clam shell for a couple of years but no background to use it with.  I put down real sand and shells to make it authenticate lol.

What do you think?

4 Month old Beauty!

Look at that beautiful hair and complexion!  She is 4 months old and slept through most of the session.  

Don't miss out on the milestones in your baby's first year.  I like to capture Newborn, Four Months, Eight Months, and One Year.  Call me for your appointment. Mini and Full Sessions are available.

Hot Family Session@World Outreach

It was hot on Saturday when I did a family session for George and Carisa DeShields. Their daughter, son-in-law, and new grandbaby were in from Florida. Parker is a doll! The hot, humid weather is rough on everyone's hair but that doesn't stop us from getting sweet pictures of those we love most! Thank you for allowing me to be your photographer. Check out George and Carisa's wedding photos under "Weddings".

Rescheduled from a windy day

We had to reschedule from a very windy day to one not so windy.  This is Danielle and her soon to be extended family.  Beautiful kids and a wonderful mom and dad, can't help but have a beautiful family portrait!

This was a combined Family and Engagement Session, wedding to follow soon!

Levi's Smash Session

Levi turned One!  I love doing the Smash Sessions and coming up with new ideas to incorporate into the sets.  Pinterest is a great source for ideas as well as Etsy.  It's also nice to come up with my own simple design!

Black and White Photography

Don't you just love a black and white image?  The children were dressed all in white and had jet black hair.  This made a beautiful image with the contrast between light and dark.  Everyone should have one good image done in black and white.  To me, it goes with any decor and never looks dated...

Baptism

I was very honored to be the photographer at a recent Baptism at the St. Williams Catholic Church in Shelbyville, TN.  Three adorable siblings were baptized.  This was my first time to photograph a baptism and I feel like I captured everything that the parents wanted...

Warm weather means outdoors!

Now that warm weather seems to be here to stay, I'm shooting more and more outdoor family sessions.  But with April and May come all of the rain and thunderstorms.  This family did not have to reschedule but it's always a wait and see as to what kind of weather we're going to wake up to.  I like to shoot in the late evening to get that soft natural light.  It's literally a countdown of the clock, waiting and watching to see if you're going to be at the right spot at the right time!  

This is such a nice shot and the area is almost always in shade.

What am I doing? Sometimes I just don't know...

I always wanted a home based, successful business...Dwane and I explored some options before we got married.  But we never dreamed it would be a photography business!    I didn't know I would get here from the path that I was put on, but here I am!  As some of you know, I had just gone into business when Victoria was in an accident.  I was never able to return to my job at the TN Fire and Codes Academy.  When we saw that I was going to be at home as Victoria's caregiver, I spent my nights on the computer doing an online class that I am still enrolled in.  I needed to earn an income.  

It took me three years to really start earning.  I put everything I made into equipment while I was getting the great tax credits the IRS gives during your start up years.  So now I am a full service studio, fully booked, and the first quarter of 2016 tripled from the first quarter of 2015.

I love what I do, love being at home, and look forward to more great sessions and events this year!

From Adaley's Two Year Old Session

Where did February go?

February came and went.  I blinked and it was gone.  March is here and I will be another year older at the end of the month.  This year will be a 1/4 gone.  Time keeps ticking on.  I guess that's better than stopping completely.  We've just been so busy...

Valentine's Mini Sessions were great!  Here are some of the images for 2016, I'm looking forward to doing them again next year.

I've been adding a lot of new Newborn props and wraps, and shopping with new vendors.  My Maternity Sessions include a complimentary Newborn Session.  Come check out what I've been adding, look at my products, view my sample images, and tell me what you would like to do in your session.   Look at this beautiful image from a Newborn Session with Kennedy...


Babies and Banjos

This little boy has a big sis who's newborn photo was taken on a guitar.  So of course his had to be taken on a banjo!  Love the color, love the idea, and happy for mom and dad to have two beautiful portraits of their babies to hang in their home.

Music soothes the soul and babies


Do you have a Tween? You must read...

dictionary.reference.com/browse/tween

preposition 1. contraction of between. noun 2. Also, tween, tweeny. a youngster between 10 and 12 years of age, considered too old to be a child and too young to a teen.  http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=tween

Moms, do you remember what it was like to be in the middle?  Whether it's the middle years of being between a child and a teen, a middle child (younger and older siblings), kind of over looked because of where you fall in the pecking order?  Do you now have a daughter who falls into this category?  Do you have photos of yourself when you were in this age group?  Probably not, most people don't.  These are not school photos.  These are portraits. Portraits to let your child shine.  

Your Tween is in a very important developmental stage of their life.  They need to know that they are special in their own way.  That their accomplishments matter.  They need to know that braces and/or glasses are a right of passage that don't make them who they are but define the character that carries them through what they think are the darkest hours of their existence.  That the rude remark from a friend at school, or the bad grade on a test, is something that will pass on to a memory. What matters is how they are taught to handle it today. That they have self-esteem and confidence in their own personal abilities, achievements, and looks.  This is who they are at this moment!

Let your Tween shine with their own special, customized, portrait session.  Bring their musical instruments, their sports equipment, let's go to the ball field or the basketball court and create something unique just for their personality.  Custom products, creative imaging, means a happy Tween!
