Why should you invest in custom portraiture?

Lillie | Middle Tennessee Baby Photographer {Frogs and Faeries}

I only have time to post one from my session this morning (running out the door to sign B up for soccer. Nothing like waiting to the very last minute!), but it's a beauty. I'll be back on later to post the rest of the sneak peak.

You know I'm a sucker for those serious looks!


As promised, I'm back with some more great images from this session! I was really going for what I'd like to call "girly-girl fru-fru" today. Lillie is such a beauty that I really wanted to play up to that. I hope I did her gorgeous-ness (is that a word???) justice.

Love, love, looovvvveee this one! I love the softness.

I went for a very vintage feel with this one.
What stunning blue eyes you have, Lillie!

Happy First Birthday, girl! (Note to self: do this collage with Jake!!)

The Latimer Children | Children's Photographer {heather latimer}

I had a crazy day today. On the phone with AT&T for half an hour while my babes destroyed the living room. Jakey hanging on my leg when I try to do anything. I think I have become his new pacifier. Brooklyn asking me at least 14 times to "t-urnnn on Scooby Doo, t-urnnn on Scooby Doo, t-urnnn on Scooby Doo" (you get the picture. I won't actually put you through the torture!). A girl can only take so much! So, I had to shut off the computer for awhile (let's be honest, it wasn't like I was getting anything accomplished anyways!) and get my babies outside.

So many people say to me, "With you being a photographer, you must have so many pictures of your kids." Sadly, no I don't. I just don't have time (or the patience or the energy!) to work with my own kids that much. I figured that I could try to get in a teeny session with them while they played outside. So I dressed them up and out we went. I never expected things to go so well! I'm sure you've heard me complain about how hard Brooklyn is to work with, but I got more great pictures of her than I did of Jake. That is a rare occurence! Actually, I'm not sure it's ever happened before! So, sit back and relax and enjoy my beautiful babies (ok, I know, I'm just a bit biased!).


Don't let the angelic smile fool ya - she can be a real devil when she so chooses!

She shouting the names of all the characters in Hannah Montana here! I love this collage. I may get it for her room.
Ohh, how timeless is this?

Here's my chunky monkey! Don't you just LURVE his dimple???

Anyone who knows Jakey well can hear the sound he is making right now! Anything that excites him get an "Ohhhhh!"

I love a solemn look probably more than a great smile. Look at those eyes - talk about windows to the soul! Oh, and those lips! To die for! Watch out girls!

The last session I had with my babes was actually on Jakey's first birthday. My canvas company was running a special, so we went out with the intent to get a canvas worthy shot to go above the mantel. I didn't want anything posed, and I knew I wanted b&w. Something timeless that really showcased a brother and sister's love for each other.

This one almost made the cut. (Actually, I think it's my next purchase.)
Here's the winner. I just loved how she is holding his hand. To me, (cheese alert here!) it symbolizes her role as a big sister and how she'll always be his guide.
And here's the bad boy in all his glory! A HUGE 30x40 beauty sitting on my mantel as we speak!

Casey and Dennis | Engagement Session {Frogs and Faeries Photography}

Today, I had the awesome opportunity to meet up with Casey and Dennis at Cheekwood Botanical Gardens for an amazing engagement session. I love e-sessions. I won't lie - it's a nice change of pace from chasing toddlers around! And there is just something so special about a couple in love and ready to take the big plunge! This wonderful couple is getting married this summer. They were so sweet and a load of fun. We have so many great images from this session that I had a very hard time narrowing it down to just these 8!!

Casey and Dennis - Enjoy!




Right smack dab in the middle of the winter field were these beautiful purple flowers. I know it's kinda cheesy, but to me these flowers represent the new life that Dennis and Casey are beginning.

A Valentine's Day present for you!

I'm in the giving mood today, so I've made a few changes to the pricing guide on the website! I've added an extra item to Collection 1, increased print credits on Collections 2 and 3, and added a few new proof books!

Giggles | Murfreesboro Baby Photographer {Frogs and Faeries}

I just love this baby! I have been photographing her since she was six weeks old, and it has been so much fun to watch her grow. Besides being gorgeous, she is the happiest little thing. I had such a great time with you, Madi! Thank you!

Meet Haven - an absolute beauty!

Six Weeks of Sweetness | Murfreesboro Photographer {Heather Latimer}

I am so excited to share this session. There is just something about a newborn that I will never tire of. I had the pleasure of meeting Baby Ben today after having to reschedule twice. I definitely thinking third time was the charm! At the beginning of his session, Ben was wide-eyed, but after working with him for awhile, he conked right out and slept the entire session. There are so many images from this session that I love! Mom and Dad, I can't wait for you to see them all!


I LOVE this one! Look at those smooshy lips!


Safe in Mom's hands . . .

Happy Birthday, Jakey!

Just wanted to share some of Jake's cake smash. Luckily, I was able to take these right before I got hit with the stomach virus that has been going around. For those of you that I had to reschedule with - I'm so sorry! But, thankfully, the kiddos didn't catch it, and I'm back to normal!

Checkin' things out:




Ohh, me likey!
