tree swings and other details

Caitlin is a quiet whirlwind of energy and creativity. Just like the rest of her family she specializes in gracefully juggling 20 different things at a time and doing it with ease that seems at times surreal. Clearly I'm envious.

blonde curls

Her blonde curls are every bit natural. Even the ones I desperately tried to tame with my oversized black spray can. In the end I gave up and let nature take its course. It seemed only right since we had chosen to photograph on her families' property outside of the city. Its a remote location that...

I have the privilege every year to photograph some seriously talented students. Taylor and Shelby both seemed to overflow with energy and passion for their sport and I figured I would be hearing there names again soon. This year both of the girls are a second generation of ICC Cougar's Volleyball players. Its cool to see how family members truly shape the next generation and can inspire us all.

mod at the market

How unlikely to photograph the backside of the local market. Here of all places is where I found the background colors we needed and clean modern lines to fit Hayley's bold patterns. I'm not sure if her mom makes friends wherever she goes (I have a strong suspicion she does) but she/we spent 15 minutes chatting up the market employee's in between milk crates and giggles. Navigating loading pallets in wedge heels is more challenging then you'd imagine.

night sky

Final shot during a warm summer evening with Taylor Hoerr. Makes me wish I could play sessions like this on repeat all year long.

Madison is a familiar face and one that I had met almost immediately after moving to Tennessee. She is the beautiful blonde on the team of fresh faced Leigh Nants girls who keep the young ladies of Paris looking en vogue and dressed to the nines.

... My editor and I are polishing up the last few details from a summer session with Madison when I remembered how much I loved this image ... and not just because I'm a puppy fanatic.

The moment Matt approached the artistically positioned tractor in the tall grass and planted himself on the step I knew this was the shot. It was as if somehow it was the most comfortable place in the world for him. This was the magic moment that I patiently hope for and anticipate during every photo shoot. This level of comfort could only have been cultivated by...

She bakes, she frosts and serves ice cream too.

She bakes, she frosts and serves ice cream too. thumbnail image

Hayley sat on the counter and I arranged the pastries just so. We were deep in conversation. The topic: chocolate cake, decidedly our favorite. I was vividly describing to her the most recent slice I had eaten at a cozy place called Magnolia's in Hazel, Kentucky, simply amazing!! I could talk about cake all day. Hayley and her animated sister, Kate are pretty passionate about cake too. I found out...

sun + sand

sun + sand thumbnail image

I took a moment to soak it all in. The lake reflected my most favorite color of jade. It was just the way my memory had recalled it from three years prior. I had been lucky enough to shoot here before and had now been invited back. Ah, I loved this lakeside retreat and a second afternoon photographing Hayley. She was even more relaxed then the previous day and as cool as a glass of chilled lemonade. I secretly hoped her mojo was rubbing off on me. The cherry red pop of her sling-backed wedge sandals complemented the soft green ...
