Forgotten Family Sessions

Tuesday, December 30, 2014

I recently began doing family shoots for some extra photographic opportunities on weekends, and - let me tell ya - they definitely stretch your creativity, but they're so much fun. Here are some of my favorite shots from the two recent shoots that I'd lacked the time to post until now.

So many cute children. There's nothing like antsy, boisterous kids to make you think outside of the box to get good poses and at least a few eyes facing the camera. :)

Festivities & Drawings

Thursday, December 25, 2014

This Christmas, I was gifted a Wacom tablet, and I cannot wait to see what becomes of it. This was just a demo drawing (inspired by the cover of the book Eleanor & Park). Simple & child-like.

I hope everyone received something they really loved, drank some delicious wine, and cozied up with a good book or movie today.

Merriest of Christmases and/or happiest of holidays!

Pictures 1-3 // We have used this record player here more than we ever did in Jackson, MS. Call it Nash-fever, call it cliché, call it awesome - we're choosing the latter. The soundtrack to this post was this vinyl by Glenn Miller. Part of why we've been using it so much also has a lot to do with how many new vinyls we've purchased since being here. We discovered Grimey's within days of being here, and we're well aware that we're going to have to be very careful not to blow our entire grocery budget there. We did splurge on the new Jack White vinyl, Lazaretto, and have not been disappointed by it (and yes, it does have a hologram on Side 1).

Pictures 4-5 // Nothing cuter than a sleeping pup and her cute paws, amiright?

Pictures 6-8 // It's the last week of my summer vacation. I start training with Nashville Prep on Monday, and I am so absurdly excited. However, I realize that this is the week that I need to make sure I check off any remaining summer goals, which is why I've made a checklist for myself almost every day these last two weeks. This keeps me from burning through my entire Netflix watch list (not that I don't occasionally add that to my daily bucket list, of course). Also, I definitely just disclosed my love affair with these pens. They're flawless, and I don't say that lightly as I'm quite the elitist about office supplies (as any teacher would be).


Franklin Farmer's Market

Monday, June 30, 2014

Even though the weather was dreary and humid, it was a perfect morning for Josh and I to go to the Franklin Farmer's Market. All of the vendors were so kind, and each of their displays made me want to shop in their booth. Of course, while we were there, we had no choice but to eat at the Biscuit Love Truck. I, unfortunately, devoured the food before my camera even had a chance to capture it. Whoops.

Kashmir the Model

Wednesday, June 25, 2014

Sometimes, I'm convinced this dog belongs in advertisements. I know I'm biased, but those eyes just kill me! She's laying on the skirt that went under my wedding dress that I pulled out of the closet to donate the other day. I'm tempted to keep it because it makes for a pretty nice prop with all the tulle.

East Side Hootenanny

Monday, June 23, 2014

I know you all are probably beginning to wonder if we spend any time in our house, and the answer to that is that we LOVE our new home and love spending our mornings and early afternoons here. The weather here has just been way too nice to spend late afternoons and evenings inside, though. So, we have a dry erase board calendar hanging in our kitchen showing all of the local events so that we never miss a beat (metaphorically or literally).

Last Saturday, we went to the East Side Hootenanny, which is totally free, minus the money you will inevitably spend at one of the handful of irresistible food trucks. 

Also, I got a free massage at one of the tents that had me feeling like glorious, relaxed mush the rest of the evening.

You can read more about the event and lots of other Nashville events at my husband's blog.
