We got to travel up to Russellville, TN for this amazing outdoor maternity portrait session!  The light was perfect on this early Sunday morning and the backdrop, just wow!  From the fields and grass to the bails of hay, I can’t get over how awesome this location was, and it was Keaira’s grandmother’s land too so it was a family location that had personal meaning too!  With the baby coming soon, I know I will be doing some newborn and… Read more »

There aren’t even words for how much I am in love with this session! Anyone who knows me knows that I love to shoot outside, with a nice green backdrop….so when Katie told me that she wanted to do her bridal portraits at her grandparents’ home in Greenville, I was a little nervous.  When I arrived, I knew that it was going to be fine.  Not only was her grandparents’ house gorgeous, but even more important, the light coming in… Read more »
