From beautiful rolling hills to the quaint, homey feel of Main Street in Franklin and the glitz of downtown Nashville, Middle Tennessee is always the perfect backdrop for your portraits.
But I'm also always up for a road trip, so if your dream location is out of town, let's go.

Sometimes the most comfortable spot to be photographed is in your own home.

This is especially great for families with tiny ones that aren’t quite ready to get out of the house.

Clean, fun, and vibrant, our studio sessions celebrate your family's personalities by creating long lasting art for your home that stands the test of time.

Great for kids of all ages -- let their personalities shine through in these modern family sessions.

We will always remember exactly what our kids were like at this precious age.

our little girl kept talking about how much she "loved playing with Miss Cate"

When I look at those photos, I remember times when we smiled, especially when times were hard.


I believe in the simple beauty of everyday life and in the unique power of photography to capture the moments today that we want to remember forever. I am honored to help you capture those moments so that you can fill your home with beautiful artwork of the people you love most in this world.

When I photograph your family I set out to capture each family member's personality and the uniquely special bond that binds you all together.

Your family is a work of art. 
Your home should reflect your beautiful creation.
