Out for a walk one day I realized how beautiful the simple brick apartment building looked across the calm water. I have gotten paid to shoot real estate, special events and products, but this is really one of my favorites just as it is, or was.

Events and marketing materials can always use a scenery shot to help tell the complete story, and I enjoy going back over a period of days to find the right lighting and angle for pics. Contact me for your real-estate or business photos!

Park shoot

Patricia invited me to shoot her portrait near the athletic park in Nolensville, between spots of chilling rain this spring. The shed doors turned into the perfect spot for this punk look. Thanks, Patricia, for bringing so many wardrobe options and being prepared for the weather!
I'd like to shoot some more portrait sessions in Nolensville this summer. There are endless creative locations in this small town. Contact me for a creative portrait, or new professional head shot!

Francis Crandall - 99 years old

Rev. Francis Gilbert Crandall went to be with Jesus at the young age of only 101 and a half... (I told him we count halves after 100). His (auto)biography has been dictated and is being re-written for publication - planned for release in 2019. Contact me if you'd like to be notified when it publishes!

original post:
Francis Crandall is going to be 100 years old soon! I got a chance to sit with him and take his portrait, listen to his stories and record some of them. His biography is this old man's 100-year birthday wish?
Do you know someone over 75 who you would like to remember with a portrait, or personal video? Contact me today and I'll work with them to capture their story, and their image, for generations to come.

Corporate Images

One of the joys of being a corporate photographer is the different kinds of people you meet at  events, seminars, on the job and at company parties. When the camera comes around the smiles come out and the laughter starts, or people run and hide. There are such diverse personalities in every business, but everyone is a beautiful person to the camera. I love the candid opportunities to document real life, real work, and real people!

Valentine's Day Quick Portraits

I spent a few hours down at the Nolensville Feed Mill today, taking pictures of customers on Velentine's Day. There was live music during lunch, and these beautiful people let me take their pictures.

Thank you!

First Birthday!

I met the most welcoming Indian family the other day for a birthday party in The Gulch, Nashville. Their beautiful little girl is now one year old. Happy birthday little one!
Birthdays are a lot of fun to photograph because the attention is all on one person, but everyone there usually cares about them so there are plenty of tender-hearted moments. Grandparents play with children and, and kids get messy with cake, there are decorations and a theme and candles. It all adds up to a lot of fun for everyone, and that's the best time to take pictures!

Chocolate-Strawberry Birthday Candles

This little lady had a strawberry cake...
It was not just strawberry flavored, but a giant strawberry dipped in chocolate for her birthday!
Happy Birthday, K!

Family and friends

It was such a joy to photograph these friends in early fall at the Ellington Agricultural Center in Nashville. We made a picnic out of it and had a great time... But my favorites are the tender, peaceful moments...

Getting boys to want a picture taken is somewhat like asking them not to be boys! But get them talking about something they love and they might just be willing to relax just long enough.

Nashville service with a smile

In late December I got to shoot a private Christmas party at the Country Music Hall of Fame, in downtown Nashville. It was a beautiful night. The catering was top notch, and the room was gorgeous with hand made rustic tables of varying shapes and sizes.
Thank you, Irma, for letting me take your picture! Did I mention that the service was great?!

After the event I took a detour down Broadway headed back to my car and photographed some street performers who really drew a crowd...  but I'll save that for a later post.
