Happy National Puppy Day!
This is our bichon pup, Elsa. πŸ’—
Our boys named her for Princess Elsa from Frozen, and she lives up to her princess (diva) namesake. πŸ‘Έ 
She's a picky eater, pro napper, and born snuggler - but do NOT get between her and her treats! πŸ˜‚
Here's to all the furry, funny pups who make our lives so much better with their quirky ways. 
What kind of dog do you have? 🐢

Sneak peek from my b'not mitzvah portrait session with these two ladies yesterday! πŸ“·βœ¨
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
Lilly and Paisley are twins, and they're being called to the Torah in May for their b'not mitzvah. I'll be photographing their service at The Temple in Nashville and the party afterward at W.O. Smith Music School!

Along with weddings, bat mitzvahs and bar mitzvahs are some of my favorite events to photograph because of all that they symbolize: legacy, tradition, life changes, family, growing up, love, joy, coming of age, the circle of life.
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
I've photographed these special family events for years, and I'm excited to have mitzvahs booked as far out as 2021!

This sweet age between child and grownup is so fleeting, and it's worth doing a separate portrait session to capture this moment in time. It also gives families portraits to display at the party - and many people use it to get guest signatures on a mat to frame.
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
For those who aren't familiar with this tradition, a bat mitzah is a coming-of-age ritual and celebration for girls in the Jewish faith. When two or more girls celebrate, it's called a b'not mitzvah.

Swipe through to see two versions of this shot from their portrait session. I can't decide between them! Which photo do you like best - #1 or #2? Let me know in the comments! πŸ‘‡

Those candid moments (along with the just-married portraits) are the ones that will bring back the memories of just how you felt on your wedding day!
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
These are just a few shots from Madeline and Andrew's joyful February wedding day (I can never choose just one! ✨), and I can't thank them enough for this beautiful review!πŸ’—:
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
"Words cannot describe how wonderful our experience was working with Rebecca and how thrilled we are with both our engagement and wedding pictures! ... On our wedding day, she was such a calming force. From formal bridal portraits to informal shots of the bridal party getting ready to capturing the hilarious moments on the dance floor, Rebecca was always present and getting beautiful shots but was never once intrusive. We have over 1,000 wonderful pictures from our wedding, and we will forever cherish them. Working with Rebecca was by far one of the best decisions we ever made for our wedding! She is just so talented and has such an artistic eye and captured our personalities perfectly in her work."

We’re not swimming yet, but we are on spring break! β˜€οΈ
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
We’ve been spending some quiet time in Hot Springs, Arkansas the past few days with my mom, my sister and brother-in-law, and my kids, relaxing a little before my season gets busy again next week!
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
We have some big family trips on the calendar for summer (including one overseas! πŸ‘ ✈️) so this getaway has been low-key: drinking hot tea in the morning with my mom, playing with the dogs, some rainy-day Scrabble, getting coffee at the local place that my kids love downtown, and baking a birthday cake to celebrate mom's 86th.
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
(I still delivered a wedding gallery and have been answering emails and taking care of to-do lists - that's just reality with my business, and I'm thankful I can do both!)
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
Here's to carving out quality time to spend with those you love every chance you get. Happy Thursday! β˜€οΈ

Last spring, my beautiful, sparkling mother-in-law died from breast cancer and complications from chemotherapy and diabetes. She became very sick so quickly, it was hard to believe.

She always put on a brave face, and within a few short months, she was gone. It's one of the biggest regrets of my life that I wasn't there at the end. Her passing was so unexpected and heartbreaking. I didn't get to say goodbye. We weren't prepared.
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
When I was asked to donate my photography for an art exhibit and fundraiser to honor women who have survived breast cancer, you'd better believe I was on board 1,000%. πŸ’—
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
Tonight, four of my photos are part of a unique art exhibit and fundraiser at @nashvillecityclub celebrating the strength and perseverance of strong women who have battled this disease. πŸ“·
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
Artists around Nashville volunteered their time to paint original designs on the bare torsos of women who've survived breast cancer, and two other photographers and I photographed their body art. 🎨
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
I can't reveal any of the photographs now - they're being unveiled at the exhibit and auction party tonight! - but stay tuned and I'll post them tomorrow! Also, follow along on my IG stories tonight and I'll show you the final images on the canvases. I'm excited because I haven't seen the final product on canvas yet myself! πŸ‘
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
The gala event is called Best Strokes: Nashville Hadassah Bares All for Art, and all funds raised from the tickets and canvases go to Hadassah Medical Organization’s breast cancer and genetic research programs. ✨
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
Being a part of this event makes me feel that I'm helping, even if it's in a very small way, and I think my mother-in-law (aka Nonnie), would have loved it. πŸ’—β˜€οΈ

This bridge in #downtownNashville is where John Robert proposed to Laura, so it was the perfect spot for their engagement session! πŸ’πŸ“·
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
(It might have been 22 degrees that afternoon, but you'd never guess, right?) ✨
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
Laura and John Robert met online, and Laura agreed to a coffee date at Barista Parlor in the Gulch. She says it was the best decision she's ever made. β˜•οΈ β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
About a year after that first date, John Robert arranged for some of Laura's friends to take her to an event downtown on a Friday night. When they stopped by the pedestrian bridge to pick up a friend, John Robert opened her door with a bouquet of roses in hand. 🌹
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
He walked her to the front of the Bridge Building and got down on one knee, and she saw "Laura, will you marry me?" illuminated in a pink heart on the bridge. πŸ’—
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
Then their families came out from behind the building and shared a glass of champagne before going to a friend's house for a surprise engagement party! πŸŽ‰
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
Double tap if you love their romantic engagement story! ✨
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
One more thing: Laura did such a great job planning the outfits for their engagement session! Color and style make a big difference in the look and feel of your photos, and I love the softness of the colors and the movement of her skirt in the wind.

Flashback to this beautiful lady's bridal portraits at @unionstationnashville ! βœ¨πŸ’
Kristin is not only a talented marketing strategist and publicist, she's also a gifted singer! You can hear her singing many days over on her IG stories at @kristinkcarver , and I love how she's consistently putting herself out there and living her best life! 🎢
...
Speaking of putting yourself out there ... today I went LIVE on IG stories for the first time ever, talking about what a typical day looks like for a wedding photographer during the week when you're not shooting a wedding. I was inspired after my friend @sarahnicholephotography (go follow her now, she's awesome!) and I were talking recently about how we as photographers don't do a great job of explaining our whole process. πŸ“·Basically, there's a ton of front-end and back-end work that's necessary but not exciting. ✨
For example, today I've been emailing out wedding-day questionnaires to prepare photography timelines for the day, emailing my insurance forms to venues that need them, responding to emails, editing photos, packaging and shipping a wedding album, and entering client information into a new software system. It's a lot of the work that no one thinks about but that's all part of running a business. πŸ‘Œ
I shared the live story and it's still up there for awhile, and going live wasn't as scary as I thought it would be! πŸŽ‰βœ¨ (There was that #reallife moment when I couldn’t figure out how to end the video, but you know...) πŸ˜‚
I challenge you to stretch yourself this week and try something new or something you've been working up the courage to do. Let me know what it is in the comments - I'd love to cheer you on! πŸ‘

Flashback to this beautiful lady's bridal portraits at @unionstationnashville ! βœ¨πŸ’ Kristin is not only a talented marketing strategist and publicist, she's also a gifted singer! You can hear her singing many days over on her IG stories at @kristinkcarver , and I love how she's consistently putting herself out there and living her best life! 🎢 ... Speaking of putting yourself out there ... today I went LIVE on IG stories for the first time ever, talking about what a typical day looks like for a wedding photographer during the week when you're not shooting a wedding. I was inspired after my friend @sarahnicholephotography (go follow her now, she's awesome!) and I were talking recently about how we as photographers don't do a great job of explaining our whole process. πŸ“·Basically, there's a ton of front-end and back-end work that's necessary but not exciting. ✨ For example, today I've been emailing out wedding-day questionnaires to prepare photography timelines for the day, emailing my insurance forms to venues that need them, responding to emails, editing photos, packaging and shipping a wedding album, and entering client information into a new software system. It's a lot of the work that no one thinks about but that's all part of running a business. πŸ‘Œ I shared the live story and it's still up there for awhile, and going live wasn't as scary as I thought it would be! πŸŽ‰βœ¨ (There was that #reallife moment when I couldn’t figure out how to end the video, but you know...) πŸ˜‚ I challenge you to stretch yourself this week and try something new or something you've been working up the courage to do. Let me know what it is in the comments - I'd love to cheer you on! πŸ‘ Happy Monday! β˜€οΈβ˜€οΈ
