Very soon an amazing young lady will be saying hello to the world. Sadly, I am unable to make Shamekas baby shower due to sessions- Saturdays are sorta my Tuesdays I suppose? However,  when I look back at these photos we took last year by the symphony I wonder if they did not already have a an idea of what happy magic was in store? Look at those smiles, that glow! Hmmm... best wishes and all the love you guys as you await your baby girl!!!

 

Shameka and Dakota are active members of their Hendersonville community at Lifechurch.tv as well astoastmasters, and Schermerhorn symphony volunteers. On the night of a special volunteer honorary dinner we met up for some photos in their adopted city!

Happy Anniversary Laura & Jeremy!

Can you believe it has almost been a year?

No matter what the weather had planned that day, the bride and groom were just giddy about getting married to their best friend. Laura and Jeremy met in college and had a long courtship, and this couple was well prepared and planned for a long successfulmarriage. They were so sweet and in love and I just know they will remain newlyweds for many years.

We had a beautiful first look session beside the swing & barn at their venue The Pick Inn in Gallatin, TN. And nothing like an overcast day to bring out rich saturated colours- and deer. We had a large crowd of four legged witnesses for the first time Jeremy set eyes on his bride before the ceremony.

The nuptials and reception were full oflaughter, and happy tears. And the blessings raining down from heaven made for an amazingly dramatic photo at the end of the night.

AJ was amazing!! She was so organized and on top of everything leading up to the wedding. She answered my thousand questions and made me feel very comfortable with the process. On the actual wedding day, things were chaotic, as we were one of the lucky couples to have an outdoor wedding on a rainy day! AJ stayed so calm and positive despite all the last min changes to our schedule/plan. It helped us to stay calm as well - which meant everything to me! Most importantly, the photos were beautiful. We loved her so much & were grateful to have her be a part of capturing our day. Thank you so much for everything! - Laura B.

I am not entirely sure what it is about them that appeals to me the most. The intricate tiny nature, the surprises inside, the history. As far as I know there is no Russian ancestry in my background, yet as a proud All American Mutt who even knows! I have always been reverent and enamored of Orthodox religious imagery, and of course of painting directly on wood or wooden panels. Maybe it is just the possibilities they each offer, the time love and craftsmanship in each one.
