I love how these images of my sweet nephew Lane turned out. He is very photogenic and has a personality that lights up the room. We had a blast capturing these shots of him.
Please bear with me as I'm learning to resize these large images for blogger.
Happy Monday! Be blessed <><

When You Book:

We will decide a date, time and location for your shoot.

*Please note that if your session is on location, the best time of day to shoot is early morning (as the sun comes up, or soon after) or in the evening (soon before, or as the sun is going down).This lighting is most pleasing and will eliminate harsh shadows and unflattering light.

We will shoot at a place of your choosing, or if you don't have a specific location, then I will choose one of my favorites. We can do your session outdoors or in your home. I work with all natural lighting, so no studio set ups.

Location ideas:

The location of your session is completely up to you. However, since I am a natural light photographer, I will need good natural light to create beautiful portraits. For outdoor sessions, open shade is very important as you don't want squinting because of the bright sun. Please remember when planning a session outdoors, early mornings, evenings or overcast days are the best time for optimal lighting.

The location can be at a favorite local park, your home, by the lake, family farm, downtown (for a more gritty, urban style which I LOVE) or other location of your choice. If you don't have a location in mind, feel free to ask me for some suggestions.

What to Wear:

*Wear what expresses your own style and personality whether it be traditional and classic or on the funky, trendy and edgy side. If we are shooting group shots you may want to coordinate your clothing but not necessarily match.

*Props are also great for expressing who you are in photos..for example, musical instruments, favorite funky chair, pets, sports gear, etc. Please discuss your prop ideas with me at the time of booking.


A non-refundable deposit of $50.00 will be due at the time of scheduling your shoot. This will allow me to hold the day and time of your shoot. If you need to re-schedule, you may do so once without charge, but after that, a rescheduling fee of $25.00 will apply.

I only accept credit/debit cards through PayPal, cash or check at this time.

After you book your date, I will contact you with further details about your session.

During Your Session:

I will spend 1-2 hours with you and we will shoot until I feel I have what I need to provide you with beautiful artwork.

After Your Session:

It will take 1-2 weeks for your proofs to be ready. I will contact you and provide you with a password for you to view your pictures in your gallery section on this site.

You may view your photos and place your print order directly through your photo gallery at Your prints will be delivered directly to your door with no extra consultations needed. Simply order from your own home!

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me:

I am an on location natural light lifestyle photographer located in West Tennessee. I love to shoot in a candid and photojournalistic style capturing life as it happens.

My photography style is very natural, non-traditional and full of emotion. I LOVE natural light and am always scouting for the perfect, beautifully lit location. As a lifestyle photographer, I find joy in documenting your family from the eye of an observer, someone peeking into your daily life. My goal is to capture your life, your family, as it is right now. That is what lifestyle photography is all about...real, everyday life.I am available for maternity, newborns, babies, children, teens, seniors and families. Contact me to set up your session!

I received my first camera from my parents somewhere around the age of 11 and I never stopped shooting. My dream of becoming a photographer was dampened by words from a photographer who didn't have time for sharing knowledge with a knowledge thirsty high school senior. So, I went into the medical field where I worked for many years. So, here I am just about to turn 40 and am embarking on a whole new adventure in photography. Exciting, life changing and destined to be so. I prayerfully seek God's grace and favor as I begin this new chapter in my life.
