Caitlin ~ Murfreesboro, TN Senior Photography ~

Meet my sweet sweet Sister-in-law. I am going to start off by saying I am blessed to have this girl in my life. She is the sweetest most responsible, smart, witty teenager I have ever met and after yesterday's shoot I have decided she should probably take up modeling. ;) Caitlin is a senior this year at Cascade and we have been chatting recently about what to do for her senior portraits. She willingly gave me total creative control, which I LOVED! After arriving at my place yesterday afternoon, we went through some outfits I had pulled, did her make-up and headed out for some fun. Check out what we got and be sure to stay tuned for session number 2. We have horses, soccer, and country-side to work with next. I can't wait!!

I love you Caitlin! Thanks for trusting me. :) You are so beautiful, both inside and out. - J

Picture Perfect Friday

Happy Friday Everyone!  I have taken notice within the past month that I have stopped shooting for myself. I say that because I am shooting, but I am not finding myself grabbing the camera for moments that are happening in my life. So, I have been playing around with an idea today... Picture Perfect Friday. I am going to try to post a picture each Friday of something personal. Whether it be of my family, the new stove I got last week, or the gorgeous light dancing across the fog that I noticed three different mornings and again, regretfully, didn't get my camera. So, I thought if I made a pact to post every week it may help me get back into the swing of picking up the camera more for personal work. I will start this Friday with family. :)

A couple of weeks ago I took my niece's for a fun filled day before the oldest started back to school. We were upstairs in my office playing around and I grabbed my camera. I KNOW I am very biased, but aren't they the sweetest.!?! Makenna's laugh is infectious and Ramsey's mysterious eyes are so captivating. I love those two little girls more than I could ever put into words. Enjoy the weekend with your family if you can and I will be back again on a personal note next Friday. ;)

Lakeshia & Andrell ~Wedding Photography Murfreesboro, TN~

Lakeshia and Andrell were married in Murfreesboro at Carriage Lane this past Saturday. The more I get to know these two the more I fall in love with them. Lakeshia is so unbelievable kind and beautiful and Andrell is one of the softest spoken grooms I have ever photographed.  His love for Lakeshia is clearly seen in the way he looks at her. My mom has always said to me that actions speak louder than words and although I am sure Andrell speaks more when he doesn't have a camera shoved in his face, I couldn't help but notice the love in his eyes when he looked at his bride. Truly touching. Lakeshia and Andrell not only became man and wife on Saturday, but they became a family. Lakeshia gave Andrell's two daughters each a ring as she promised to always be there for them and AJ, their son, won my heart over. (If you ever need a babysitter know who to call! ) Their friends and family were all so sweet. Their faith in God and celebration of this couple absolutely made my Saturday. Enjoy the sneak peek of their beautiful wedding and congrats again guys. I loved being a part of your special day!
