This past fall, I had the honor of taking family portraits for our pastor and his family.  He followed the Lord’s call to our church in October of 2015, about ten months after our beloved former pastor tragically passed away from a rare cancer.

Pastor Robby and his family have been such a blessing to our church, and have really helped us heal and move forward after such a great loss.  His dedication to discipleship has touched countless lives and helped us grow in our faith by leaps and bounds.  I look forward to sitting under his teaching and leadership each Sunday, and have never been more excited about faithfully reading The Word.  If you’re in the Nashville area, and looking for an amazing, Bible believing church to call your own, I highly recommend Long Hollow Baptist Church in Hendersonville.  We will welcome you with open arms!

I had such a fun time photographing Pastor Robby, his wife Kandi, and their sweet boys, Rig and Ryder.  The weather was warm, and the autumn leaves were out in all their glory, making the perfect backdrop for this special session.

A few months ago, I saw an ad for a worldwide photography contest called Shoot & Share.  You could enter up to 50 photos to 25 categories (I entered 40 photos).

This year, the contest had their largest turnout yet, with 332,768 photos entered from 141 countries, and had over 49 million votes!

There were SO many AMAZING photos in each category!  I was shocked and proud to find out that two of my photos had placed in the Top 100 in their categories, three photos were finalists (top 3%), eight photos were top 10%, twelve photos were top 20%, and five were top 30%!  You can see my photos and their placement below (top 10% and above).

Senior Girl {Alexa} – Nashville Senior Photographer

December 31, 2016

Senior portraits!  I’ve found a new love!  Previously, I’ve focused on maternity, newborn, and family photography, but this year I had the pleasure of photographing two 2017 seniors, and it was a blast!  I only wish this kind of portraiture existed (or that I knew about it) when I was a high school senior!  Then […]

Adorable Big Brother {Nashville Maternity Photographer}

September 13, 2016

I absolutely love shooting maternity sessions!  There aren’t many things more special than anticipating the arrival of a new baby.  But if there’s something that can make a maternity session even better, it’s incorporating the new big brother or sister into the photos.  That was certainly the case for the Singleton family!  Their little boy, Carter, […]

Samantha’s Baby Shower | Hendersonville, TN Photographer

August 2, 2016

When Steve and I got married back in 2011, almost none of our friends were married and/or had kids.  It’s been so fun to watch relationships grow from dating to engaged, then married.  And now, we have the pleasure of watching our friends have kids of their own!  It’s about time, you guys!  Haha!  Last […]
