Jooooooeeeeeeyyyyyy, Baaaaaaaaaabbbbbbbyyyyyyyy…. The Nashville Zoo has a fabulous group of Bennett’s Wallabies in their Critter Encounter area. You know, the area where the goats live and the camels. I first encountered the albino male and was swept away by his charm. He is very friendly licking hands and hanging onto visitors arms with his claws. I was at the zoo all day on Tuesday. I am glad I stayed because I had heard there was a seven month old joey living in his mom’s pocket. Right at closing after visiting the clouded leopards, red panda and flamingos one last time for the day I swung by the critter encounter area just before they locked the gate. There he was. This sweet little albino baby poking out and grazing along with momma.
This is a lovely story. My friends after years of waiting have welcomed a baby girl into the world and their lives through adoption. How exciting it is that they asked me to photograph Chloe while she was still tiny, only nine days old. She was so alert and think she is going to be really smart. Look out mom and dad!! I have known Brad and Chantelle for years. I photographed their wedding at Craigfont in Gallatin and worked with Brad. They have been parents to several sweet four legged children including Tululah who has amazing eyes and Jasmine, the bengal cat who is smart as a whip. Being a birth mom myself, I know the struggles and heart break of letting a child go. It is painful and stays with you for your entire life. You can only hope and pray that the people who are now your child’s parents will love your child as much or more than you could. I know B & C are going to be incredible parents with more love for Chloe than anyone else in this world!!
It is a tradition, not long standing, but now a three year tradition. For the past three years I have gone to a pumpkin patch with my friends, the M’s. They have two adorable kids. If you follow this blog you see lots of photos of Jackson and now he has a baby sister. This year also the F family joined in the fun. The day was windy, dry and dusty. Not the prettiest but the photos are really some of my favorites, conjuring up images from the early twentieth century.
Sweet little Maggie just six days old napping on the porch in her momma’s arms. Welcome to this earth sweet baby!

I photographed this session on Halloween of last year and figured I should post this as I have completed Tate’s Nine Month Session. Tate’s parents are documenting Tate’s first year as they did with their oldest, Ansley. I love going to their house and seeing photos hanging and sitting on tables. They buy small prints and Kaelin displays them with larger matts and beautiful frames. Must be her interior designing skills!!
Another great session with baby H and his big brother A. I have been photographing these little guys since big brother was a baby and before they were born into this world: their mom and dad’s wedding day.
I love natural light! I really needed a way to challenge myself so I pulled out my Alien Bee mono light and my Alien Bee ring light and offered some mini session spots to some friends and clients. I will be blogging the results of these sessions over the next few days. They are in no particular order.
These beautiful babies are Nashville royalty. I say this because their family roots are deeply planted in this city. You, the reader, probably know someone they are related too. I think they are so so so sweet and remind me of china dolls!!
Such a sweetie pie! Hylton is turning one. His mom, Jessica, hired me to photograph him not only to mark his first year, but to also design some unique birthday invites. I love this family. I photographed his aunt Maggie’s wedding. Hylton’s big brother, Baker, also appears in my portfolio.
Meet little Mr. H. all of about 5 weeks old and his dog, Norman.
