What started out as a family photo blog- ended up as a technological tangent.

Here are a few photos of a family that I took a couple weeks ago. I need to get back into this blog thing. Trying to keep up with this, Facebook, and Twitter is just too much. I tried logging into my My Space the other day and couldn’t remember my password or the email i signed up with to retrieve my password. . . . guess that account is finished. Twitter- I cant really get into- maybe I just don’t get it yet- or maybe I don’t feel like telling the world everything I am doing, but yet I like reading what other people are doing. I go back and forth. I’ve been really fickle lately. I blame it on my dog. Can I do that? She makes me crazy- once again my life is revolving around my dog. I need to do something about that. Anyways- tangent. Back to one of my good friends family photos. Jane thanks for setting the shoot up. I had lots of fun and hope you like them!

I love snow. I dislike cold weather. I love puppies. I dislike disobedience.

I woke up Sunday in a beautiful mood.  It’s amazing how easy it is to get up early when there is snow outside my window.

It’s also amazing that I can look into those cute little puppy dog eyes and forget all the anxiety she creates in my house.  No one told me owning a puppy was hard.  I thought it was all snuggling and licking.  Wrong!  She is a great model and an excellent running partner (that is, when she doesn’t want to chase after cyclists).  I keep telling myself- just a few more months and she will grow out of it.  Please tell me I am right?  =)

p.s.  Willow I love you- no matter what i say!  😉

All the World’s a Stage

I love the fact that every wedding is different.  It really keeps me on my toes and stretches me creatively, technically, and emotionally.  Here are some photos of David and Hannah’s wedding at the Belcourt theater.  Their theater themed wedding was played out perfectly and was a very unique idea.  After all the festivities we walked around Hillsboro Village- which was a lot of fun.  Everyone was honking and congratulating them.  We had a great time and the photos look great!

Lisa and Mike

I am blessed to be able to work with some awesome people and their amazing families.  Mike and Lisa’s wedding was a very happy, emotional time but also a great celebration.  We had a great time and the entire bridal party and family were so easy to work with.  Here is to you, Mike and Lisa.  I hope your marriage is filled with lots of joy and love.  Your marriage is a great example of two families truly becoming one.

Congrats Steve and Peggy!

I had a great time with Steve and Peggy, and I must say Peggy . . . is quite the model.  She made things so easy.  She had her poses down and knew exactly what she wanted.  We had a blast.  We went all around town after the wedding and took lots of photos of the newly wed couple.  My favorites are the city themed photos at the bottom.  Thanks for letting me be apart of your special day!

Josh and Jess are engaged!

I had the privilege of taking engagement photos for a good friend and co worker of mine.  We had a blast hanging out on Josh’s family property.  It was beautiful.  It made me almost wish I lived out in the country.  Almost!  As soon as I got back into downtown Nashville I realized I am still a city girl, but I do love Tennessee’s rolling hills but not the bugs!  =)  Here are some of my favorite shots from last weekend.  (There were so many great ones it was hard to choose)

Meet Willow . . . the new addition to the family!

Some friends of mine found Willow, her mom, and her brother on the side of the road in Chattanooga a few weekends ago.  She needed a home and Chad and I thought we were ready for a dog.  We soon found out that puppies are a lot of work!  But she is worth it.  She is to cute and follows me around everywhere.  I love it!

Here is Willow at the park with our best friend Alana.  We had a great time hanging out and eating snow cones. Pina Colada is her favorite.
