Swayze Layne Brown

November 15, 2015

I met Chelsea the moment I walked into her hospital room while she was in the midst of laboring to have her second daughter and immediately I feel in love with her and her entire family.  When photographing births sometimes it happens a lot faster than we think and sometimes a lot slower.  Chelsea was expecting to be delivering within the next 2 hours after I arrived.  Well, after waiting about 6 more hours she was ready to push… and I mean she was ready!  At that point I was in the waiting room giving her and her husband a few moments alone when I got a text it was time to push.  Naturally, I went running down the hallway and it was a good thing I ran.  She had her baby literally one minute after I walked back in the room! Here’s a video I shot of that sweet moment.

 

Congratulations David and Chelsea and big sister Charley on the new arrival of Swayze Layne Brown!

Finley Kate Whitmore

November 14, 2015

I have said it before, but every birth I have photographed has always made me cry and this one was no different.  The excitement in the room waiting for the baby to be born could be felt by everyone especially since they had no idea what the baby’s gender was.   Kate was so calm as she labored not to mentioned she looked beautiful in the midst of so much pain.  And it was so evident how much Brett and Kate love each other watching Brett so tenderly comfort his bride.  I hope this video will always bring back such vivid memories for Brett and Kate of that first moment when their eyes met their baby girl.

Congratulations Whitmore Family on the birth of your beautiful baby Finley!

As a photographer I am always wanting to grow and be challenged and I have loved the journey I have been on with photographing AND videoing births.  There is just nothing like it!  The moment when a mom and a dad see their baby for the first time… it’s sacred and a moment to always be cherished.  I have cried at each birth I have been privileged to be at.

Here is a video I shot of my sister giving birth to my niece.  And don’t worry it’s a PG rating ;).

Let’s be honest, I am perfectly horrible about updating my blog with recent work.  There’s something really rewarding about sharing recent work, yet it takes a lot of extra time and thus, ends up at the end of my list.  However, this weekend this super fun couple is getting married and I couldn’t be more excited about it.  So, I figured I would share their engagement photos I shot this last fall.

Anyway, Congratulations Ryan and Carrie!  You are just days away from officially being Mr & Mrs!!!

There is something so beautiful about Palm Springs weddings and this one wedding definitely was one of them.  Congratulations to the new Mr. & Mrs. Serrano!

Robinson Family

November 5, 2014

I have decided I need to start blogging again!  Due to the world of Instagram and other social networks, I haven’t hardly posted any of my work for the last 2 years.  So, my goal is to begin posting again on a regularly basis… it’s baby steps right?  One post at a time.  To start off, here is a sneak peek from a mini session I shot in California with the beautiful Robinson family!

Tom & Steph

March 25, 2014

It’s always fun to look back at some of our favorite work and since we just posted Tom & Steph’s recent shoot, we figured it would be fun to look back at last year’s shoot in Palm Springs.

Hope you all are having a great week!

New Year’s with Tom & Steph

February 25, 2014

Posting New Year’s photos in February? Sure, why not?!  Hands down, Tom and Steph are one of our favorite couples to shoot.  They happened to be in Tennessee before Christmas and Steph brought a few props along for a quick photo shoot for their Christmas card.  We grabbed a few things around my house to add to her props and we had a cute little shoot on our hands.

Ryan & Shelby {engaged}

February 24, 2014

Although, we have been working a lot this past year, we have hardly posted any of our recent work and it’s time we finally post some!  We had so much fun shooting Ryan and Shelby’s engagement photos this past fall when all the leaves were changing.  The great thing about the Nashville area is you can simply drive on a few back roads and land yourself in a gorgeous spot.  Ryan and Shelby were so natural and fun to shoot.  Here are a few of our favorites from our time with them.

The McWhorter’s

September 16, 2013

I love photographing this beautiful family and I just love the way these turned out. These photos are from a quick 30 minute mini-session.  I will be posting information tomorrow regarding my fall family photo schedule, pricing and sessions that are available.  I will be offering mini-sesssions again this fall.  For California clients, my space is EXTREMELY limited and has already been filling up even without posting any of the news.  So, be sure to email me if you want to reserve a spot.  Tennessee clients, the good news for you is my schedule is much more flexible.  I can’t wait to take advantage of all the fall colors!  Hope you all are having a wonderful Monday!
