Just a little on the trashy side

Our PUG Trash the Dress shoot was just way too much fun. I know the object of the shoot is to gather images that are out of the norm...but these two were just too cute, so I added this fun non-trashed shot of them.

Now this is sexy... and wet...the fountains at Bicentennial Mall provided an excellent prop for the session. What a trooper this bride was.

Another wonderful use of water in a photo. This was really too awesome. These girls were so great. My contribution to the shoot was my bride, Sam. Sam is a very non-southern belle. Her dark, sultry features (Portuguese lineage, she told me) added a nice contrast to our blonde models. Sam is a New Hampshire native and is in my neck of the woods with her military husband.
Sam also is a member of Nashville Music City Roller Girls and competes on a regular basis.

After the water fun, our fearless leader, Danielle Adams, led us downtown to Printer's Alley for some exciting alley work.

REALLY, REALLY happy photographers at work (or play) ! Andrea Hallgren, Whitney and Peter Carlson, and several others participated.
And, my dream team: Jen on hair, daughter Jordan assisting me, Sam my new BFF, and Nicole on make-up. I love these girls! thanks, you are the greatest!

Sweet Ryann

Ryann is such a wonderful child. She has a great laugh and sweet disposition. Here is one of my favorite images from her studio session on Saturday.

Baby Ella and Baby Baylee

Oh, Miss Ella, are you just the cutest?! Ella is the baby girl of a favorite bride and groom from a couple of years ago. Shelli and Glenn could not be more proud of her.

Miss Ella was also born the same day as my great niece, Baylee June, and she had her photo session the following day for her 3 month milestone.

Here's Baylee with her Grandma Joy, my sister. What a little sweetheart!

Sunday Bridal Show

Beth, Lorri, and Jennifer: our fearless leaders! These ladies ran a flawless Clarksville Bridal Show on the campus of Austin Peay, this past Sunday. We had a lovely evening visiting with brides and their moms.
My daughter Jordan, far right, and two of her bridesmaids, Emily and Mary, toured the show and picked up ideas for her wedding next July. We all were interested in the fashion show with models we knew. Oh, to be young and beautiful! There were several blushing 'brides' from The Bride's Boutique modeling for the crowd. We found quite a few gowns we liked there on our shopping trip Saturday, and will return soon to make a final selection for Jordan. How exciting!
