It was already past her due date when I texted Tiffany asking if she would meet me at my studio. I knew she felt pretty miserable at that point, so there was a good chance just the idea of putting on real clothes and leaving the house would cause her to laugh in my face. Much to my delight, however, she agreed! I had asked her to come to the studio so I could practice a few things ... I'm super accustomed to shooting film outdoors, but I don't feel like I've completely mastered indoor shooting, and I wanted a practice subject. You can see why I called Tiffany. She may not have felt it, but I could see just how stunning she was (is). She was mere days away from meeting her sweet baby girl - their third! - and I wanted to see if I could capture a little of that magic. .
Love these friends dearly. Many long conversations and times of prayer, laughter and miscellaneous shenanigans. Thank you for loving us well, @prministry and @celeste_guido. You are family. #cherishedfriendships#nashvillefamily

Anyone who has had the pleasure of being around you will testify that YOU ARE A SPECIAL LITTLE GIRL AND GODS HAND CAN BE SEEN ALL OVER YOU! We love you so much Charis Everley! Keep being YOU with your HUGE personality! Happy Second birthday to our Love of a lifetime!!!!!!!!! 🎊🎉🎊🎉🎈🎁
Happy Monday! Fall seems to have arrived. This week I’m looking forward to my first newborn baby session and a creative shoot Wednesday for @thevauntproject that I’m working on. Both sessions will have my pallet wall incorporated! I can’t wait to get these shoots under my belt so I can finish my pallet wall blog and get that out to you guys! So far it has shot beautifully ☺️ #mondaymotivation
