I Love Memphis {Memphis Family Photographer}

I just love our city! I was so excited when this sweet family asked for their session to take place near the old Arcade Restaurant in Memphis. We watched the trolleys go by, and enjoyed walking up and down the street. I love it when my families have ideas in mind or locations they’d like to use, and this family is so creative! I can hardly wait for this year’s session at the Concourse. But in the meantime, here’s a look at last year’s fun! And don’t you just love their wardrobe? Perfect for those Christmas cards and gifts!

A Newborn Studio Session {Germantown TN Newborn Photographer}

I couldn’t be more thrilled to be working in my new studio in Germantown, TN! The natural light. The props. The BABIES! If you are expecting, and need help planning the perfect newborn session, our doors are open! I would love to meet you to give you a tour of our brand new place, and to work with you to choose the best colors and props to coordinate perfectly with your home decor. My goal is to help you not only come away with pictures that you love, but to ensure that they blend perfectly with your home so you can get them up on the walls where they belong :).

A sneak peek at the studio is coming up soon, as artwork is going up this weekend! But in the meantime, here’s a look at Bennett’s session! This little angel was just perfect from beginning to end, and had the cutest smile ever. It’s was such an honor to meet him, and spend time with his sweet mama–fellow photographer of Mebs Photography! Congrats Boston family!

A Session for Hazel {Utah Child and Family Photographer}

I have rewritten this post three times. It’s very hard to find the right words when talking about childhood cancer. So I’ve decided I’m not going to. It’s enough for you to know that my childhood friend’s daughter Hazel has fought and is winning, winning, winning! But at the time of this session that I begged my friend to let me do, she was still deep in the trenches of her battle. I bet you could never guess looking at this session which one she might be. I have never seen so much love, friendship, joy, and happiness from anyone as I did from Hazel on this night. Hazel smiled, laughed, danced and twirled. She giggled with her sisters and snuggled with her family. She held my hand over and over again, walking and talking with me like old friends, even though she hadn’t ever met me before. She even invited me to lunch when I came back to Utah to visit at our shared favorite restaurant (and we did have lunch there a couple of months later!!). I was blown away.

So here’s to all the fighters out there. Here’s what hope and joy look like. Love you Hazel. Thank you for teaching me so much, and for loving a new friend.

Melanie - What a great session! I’m so in love with that blue dress and the way you used that location is impeccable!

July 16, 2017 - 8:48 pm

Janice - Wow! These are amazing!! The lighting and color are perfection. This is beach photography at it’s finest. Well done!

July 16, 2017 - 8:50 pm

Kathleen Odenthal - Wow! What gorgeous portraits! Im sure this family was super happy to see the finished product. Everything is so well done, from the posing, to the wardrobes, to the composition- kudos!

September 8, 2017 - 3:52 pm

Cindy - Beautiful photos! Any idea where they found the turquoise dress?

erin - Thank you! We rented from Rainey’s Closet! Well, they donated most of them for sweet Hazel and her sisters to use. But I wouldn’t rent from anyone else! They are very sweet over there!

Newborn Brixton {Memphis Newborn Photographer}

I am so excited to be in my new Germantown photography studio, where I can meet sweet little babies like Brixton! Each EDP newborn session includes use of an amazing collection of clothes made just for newborns from the ever-so-talented The Treetop Shoppe. Be sure to check them out and see what you might want to use as part of your next session! They are adding more baby clothes for sitters and toddlers every day, and plan to expand beyond that, so if you are questioning what to have your little wear at their session, be sure to email me first. I may have just the thing (or two or three!)

So here’s a recap of the fun we had when Brixton came in for his session (this is very overdue, but I’m glad to add it now!). . .
