I’m a photographer based in Nashville, Tennessee. I love photographing growing families for parents who value timeless, natural, and heartfelt images. I specialize in a baby lead approach to Newborn Photography. I believe every milestone deserves to be captured, from Maternity to your baby’s first birthday, to your child’s first missing tooth - you and your children will treasure each memory you allow me to capture.

My studio is located just south of town in Franklin, Tennessee. I’m married to a kind, smart, handsome man named Mark who encouraged me follow this dream and leave my full time teaching job and see how far my photography “side job” could go — and boy has it surpassed my wildest dreams!

I believe that memories matter and that photographs of your family during all its different stages will be some of the best legacy items you could give your children. I believe its important for YOU to be in photos with your children. The love shared between a parent and child needs to be captured. I believe displaying photographs in your home of your child will boost their self esteem and help to instill a confidence that they belong.

No matter what the stage your family is in — it is worth documenting!

the experience


Email me! We can set up a time to chat - I’ll answer all your questions and learn about your sweet family! 

Once your session is booked I will send a welcome packet with clothing and preparation advice for your session.


Your photos are a celebration of life in this moment. In the midst of raising a child its hard to realize how much you will treasure each stage of their growth 20, 30, 60 years from now. I will do everything in my power to make the experience of having your photos taken a celebration of your family at this stage in life. We will make your session fun and heartfelt. 

Be prepared for preview images! As I am editing, I love to share preview photos with you. Once all your images are edited its time to design your Album and/or choose which photos to hang on your wall or gift to grandparents. We will be there every step of the way to make sure your artwork is of the highest quality.
