Candoro Marble is a beautiful venue that originally was the showroom and office for Candoro Marble Company. When Jaimie said she was looking for a vintage backdrop for some soft and classic boudoir photos, I knew that this was the place. The beautiful show room, wrought iron gates, and slightly decaying rooms spoke of Greecian statues…it was perfect.
There hasn’t been a whole lot of “still moments” around here lately to tell the truth. But every now and then we get a glimmer of one and hold onto it for dear life. There is something about having a child that makes you be much more aware of time and its passing. It can make your stomach churn to realize how much has already gone by, or make you flood with exasperation at how slow the lack of one nap time is going. Either way you are so much more aware of it coursing through your daily life with an intense ebb and flow.
I was a little skeptical when Ashley asked me to photograph her wedding. I sat across from her at Panera looking into her smiling face and had my doubts. None of them were about her but about me. I was 8 months pregnant and already felt like I was going to pop. Her wedding was roughly a month after my due date. What if it was too soon? My concern was not for my own well being but what if I could not deliver (as I promise all my clients) my absolute best? As I looked at Ashley’s expectant smile, I knew that I couldn’t say no. Ashley’s sweet and understanding personality made it easy to take a chance. We decided to wing it and I’m so glad we did.
In case, I forgot to mention it…Speed Racer and I are pregnant! We are having a baby and quite soon too I might add! Our little one is set to make its debut February 3rd, 2015. So between holidays and preparing for baby, the posts and updates may be few and far between. I appreciate your patience during this time, especially all of my clients who have already shown me so much patience and love! I cannot wait to share the next stage in our life with you as well as my photography career. Here’s to the next adventure!
A special thinks also to Kayla with Kayla F Photography! I cannot get over my amazing maternity session with her and adore each and every beautiful image she took!
It’s pretty rare that all the elements come together for a outdoor boudoir session. Weather, timing, a willing subject, and of course finding a secluded enough location to take the photos. But Amanda and I set out on a beautiful warm fall day for a beautiful boudoir adventure.
The first weekend in November it was freakishly cold here in East Tennessee. There was even snow in the mountains, which is unusual for this time of year. Despite the cold, Catherine & Bryan got married at Dara’s Gardens and had one of the most beautiful fall weddings I have ever experienced.
Fall colors, woods, a pond, pumpkins, and a family owned farm…what’s not to love about this engagement session? Early in October I headed over to Anderson County to Jodi’s family farm for an afternoon of fun photos.
