baby photographer - franklin, tn - emma claire and parker reid

larry and ashley are proud new parents of twins parker and emma. i have known ashley since kindergarten and how fun it was to be able to see the life she has as a new mom. ashley was around when my love of photography began to burgeon. she's in many photos from junior high when all i had was a disposable and was my editor for high school yearbook. i was so proud to be able to see her with larry, parker and emma. such a beautiful family. and they are WONDERFUL parents. these two should never doubt that they're loved. here they are at eleven weeks old...

LOVE this one!

ashley and larry didn't find out they were expecting twins until five months into the pregnancy! even though it was surprising news, i don't think they could be happier.

when i first met ashlee and caleb, i really hoped they would choose me as their wedding photographer. they are one of those couples that i hit it off with immediately and knew there was chemistry there. not too long after our meeting, i got a call saying they wanted to move forward with their january wedding! we ran around downtown franklin on a hot, humid june morning (imagine that this time of year!) and walked away with beautiful imagery. i'm excited to share these with them and hope you enjoy!

lifestyle photographer - nashville, tn - brittany and joseph

whew! i believe an apology is in order for the lack of my presence here the past of couple of months. things have been NUTS-O! i've been in and out of doctors and specialist offices tending to some health issues and had to cut a few things out of my schedule. the blog was one of them and i appreciate those who checked in on me. all of your thoughts and prayers have meant so much to us.

now onto a long overdue sneak peek! brittany and joseph are high school sweethearts and are going to be tying the knot this fall. it was wonderful to hear their story and their future plans. thanks for being so great to work with (and patient for these! :) ) enjoy and best of luck with the house. i am so excited for you two.
