Logan's All About Me Session ~ Murfreesboro, TN Photographer

It's true. I have a 10 year old. 1-0! That's double digits! I've been meaning to take him out all summer for a birthday shoot all about him (All About Me sessions for older kids are something I've been thinking about for a while now...more on that in a bit). We finally found the time this past weekend. We incorporated some of his favorite things and went for a little more of an urban feel.
So what's he all about??
We lost light and couldn't get to the last 2 but, plan on finishing up soon.
My Boy is Blonde-haired, Blue-eyed, Full of joy, Always thinking of others
and Sarcastically funny(hmmm...wonder where he gets that from??)
My Boy

Gosh I love that smile:)

His new big bike he got for his 1-0 birthdayDiary of a Wimpy Kid is seriously one of the funniest book series I've read. Yes, I have middle school humor.

All About Me Sessions:
I'm gonna go on a little rant now. Bare with me. It seems that when kids get to a certain age the creatively professional pictures stop. I can think of a number of reasons for this...
The kids hate taking pictures.
Their skin isn't as crystal clear like it was in the early years.
They're going through an awkward phase.
The dreaded Braces are needed.
The only thing that you have besides snapshots throughout the year are those horrid school pictures! Elementary & Middle school aged kids have sooo much personalities!! They have very certain likes/dislikes, favorite outfits, best buddies & opinions. Just think about what can be captured when you get the kid involved! Let them choose outfits. Let them choose the location. Let them choose all of their favorite things to incorporate. Remember them exactly as they are in this moment.
Make it All About THEM!
When I get all the details about these shoots worked out I'll post them in the Session Info Section. Email me if you have any questions & just can't wait to capture your little guy or gals personality right now!
~Until Next Time~

Ethan is ONE!

I was so excited to get to photograph Mr Ethan again! He has the most adorable little dimple you could pretty much swim in and blue blue eyes (I'm partial to the blue eyed boys having one myself) that look like a reflection of water. Yea, a lot of water references going on there. So we met at a local place known for its small town charm that I haven't shot at in a while. The clouds kept darting in & out threatening rain. It did sprinkle quite a bit but, we decided to just go for it and run for shelter if need be. I was hoping for that early morning sun to test some abilities but, alas, there was none. I'm pleased as punch with the results though! And Ethan was a charmer.

*on a side note: I have been scouring the internet for any type of old soda crate boxes because I am SO.IN.LOVE. with this gal's home (7th photo down)! Plus anything that can work double duty as home decor & prop I'm game for. Found a guy in Goodlettsville selling 4 for $20. 4 for $20!! And yes, I drove all the way to a bike shop in goodlettsville for it.*


Ehtan wanted nothing to do with his hat! It was promptly thrown down after this shot. Handmade tie/shorts/hat by my dear friend April at CuddleBug Gifts

A Decade Together

Here we are. Ten married years in the making! Sometimes I can't believe it's been that long and others feel like a lifetime;) We have had some pretty awesome highs and some not so awesome lows. But, our commitment to each other has never waivered. We are in this for the long haul & that's a pretty amazing feeling.

The only piece of advice I can give is to grow together and not apart. Keep each other in the loop on how you feel, what's piquing your interest and thoughts for the future. We actually grew up together and could have very easily grown apart. We didn't and I'm thankful.

I love this guy more today than when we first started dating almost 14 years ago! Growing together will do that to ya. Here's to a thousand more years as The Deckers.

Miss Paisley is 2! ~ Murfreesboro, TN Photographer

We had a TIME with sweet Paisley's 2 year session. First off, every photographer's nightmare happened to me. The camera quit. Thirty minutes into the session. Just plain quit! Battery charged, lens cleaned, memory card in place and it gave me nothing. We re-scheduled. Next try was an early morning & Paisley was just not in the mood to be photographed. Now, I've never had this happen either! I can always walk away with plenty to choose from but, she had other plans. I pulled out all my stops and nothing was working. I decided it was best to just try a different day. Maybe another afternoon session 'cause she was ready to rock it on the first scheduled afternoon session. So we re-scheduled. And.She.ROCKED.It! I got more than enough of this adorable trio. Seriously, the good looks in this family are just not fair!!

Had to get a few of sweet big brother. He has such a kind heart and is always willing to lend a helping hand. Jenn, you've got yourself a heartbreaker here!

This next one is probably one of my most favoritest shots ever.

Or maybe this one is! Can't you just feel the LOVE!?

Sometimes patience is key when working with kiddos. I'm so glad the 3rd time was the charm because I have soooo many favorites from this shoot! I literally had a smile on my face the whole time I was working on these.
Hope to see you guys again REAL soon.
