Sunset on the Course – Nashville Family Photographer

Brilliant sunset lighting made this session super special.

Late fall on the golf course is hard to beat for a family shoot. The yellows and oranges shone bright, but I think the family’s faces shone brighter. At one point, the two daughters were posing together, and I asked them to act like sisters together. The mom said from behind me, “well in that case, they should be pulling each other’s hair out,” or something of the sort. I laughed, and it gave me an idea. We staged a fun (and fake, of course) shot where the younger sister was taking out some frustration on her big sis. It turned out so fun, as did the rest of their photos!

Family Photos at Ellington Ag Center

Have you ever seen a cuter pair of little girls?!

These two were quite the pistols, with tons of energy and tons of silly smiles. Real talk, it took a little coaxing for them to cooperate, but it only takes an instant to capture a moment for a lifetime. Thankfully, there were several memorable moments with this fam, and we had a total blast together. I loved seeing dad cuddle with his girls, and cozy up with his bride at the end of the session. And to cap things off, how about a little leaf war!

The Ramsey Family

Here is a family near and dear to my heart…the Ramsey Family.

Rich was one of my very first friends when I moved to Nashville almost a decade ago. His leadership and friendship have shaped who I am today.

Jennifer has faithfully served in our church community for as long as I’ve known her. She sets a tremendous example for what a loving wife and mother look like.

A few years ago, I had the pleasure of holding their daughter only hours after she was born. Now they have an exuberant family of four, and for the first time ever, they were in front of my camera last week!

Since they already know and love the Ellington Ag Center, we chose that spot for their session. I find that when families are already comfortable in a location, they have an easier time just being themselves. That leads to even better photos šŸ™‚

Enjoy this wonderful family and their super-fun photo shoot!

Meet the Turberfield Family. They’re now Nashvillians by way of New York, and originally England. I’m glad they’re here and bringing their joy to the Nashville community!

The Smith Family Reunion

What a privilegeĀ it was to be on hand and document the Smith Family’s reunion. There were three generations present to celebrate sweet Stan and Ginny’s 60th anniversary, and of course commemorate the experience with a photoshoot!

Having a little fun with all the cousins!


I always like to grab a few candid shots, even during a formal shoot like this one. Sometimes those moments become the most meaningful.
