Heading into the home stretch of holiday season like πŸ’ƒ πŸ’ƒ!
...
When I find myself getting down for not doing EVERYTHING I set out to do each day, I'm making myself stop and think about all the things I did accomplish - even if it wasn't on the list! 
This helps remind me that I'm actually making progress, even if I'm taking baby steps. πŸ‘£
(Sometimes I write something on my list that I've already finished, just so I can check it off. Anyone else?) πŸ‘€
In addition to work deadlines, I'm still Christmas shopping for my kids and hoping everything arrives in time. Are you a last-minute shopper (like I am!), or do you buy throughout the year and spend this time kicked back watching Hallmark movies, feeling relaxed and festive? πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸŽ„βœ¨
Let me know in the comments! πŸ‘‡

PUBLISHED: I'm thrilled to see Bailey and Kyle's beautiful downtown wedding Nashville from earlier this year featured on @theknot today!! πŸ’ ✨
Their celebration at @officialcmhof was everything you’d expect (and more!) from a wedding in the heart of the city, with elegant details, an amazing live band, a stunning venue overlooking Nashville, personal touches including custom Nashville skyline invitations, and a big group of friends and family who partied late into the night - with a balloon exit at the end! πŸ’ƒ 🎢 
Click on my link in profile to check out The Knot's feature, and a huge THANK YOU to @awgevents and all the talented vendors (double click to see all the tags!) who helped make this day so wonderful for Bailey and Kyle! πŸ™ŒπŸΌ
✨A special thank you also to Bailey and Kyle for choosing me to photograph these memories for you!! πŸ’—
P.S. They've received their heirloom wedding album that tells the story of their wedding day, and I'll post some pictures of that soon. πŸ‘Œ
Have a wonderful weekend! β˜€οΈβ˜€οΈ

Remember that rainy day maternity session from Sunday? Here's one of the indoor shots of the lovely Lacey, who looks angelic! πŸ’—βœ¨
Truth: I was a little nervous about this session because of the freezing weather and dark skies. I knew the photos would have a more moody feel and not the golden, backlit images that are more my style! β˜€οΈ
But when you have shadows, you just have to embrace them, and I really love the soft, quiet, reflective mood here. Double tap if you agree! πŸ’—
(Side note: If I hadn't had this soft, clean window light, I would have set up my softbox and flash off camera, with a reflector to my left, and it would have produced the same kind of look!)πŸ‘Œβœ¨
This session actually has me wanting to do an in-home, romantic maternity session with clients who love a look similar to this. I'm excited for all the winter session possibilities! DM me if you're interested! πŸ™ŒπŸΌ

Happy, happy birthday to Nate! β˜€οΈπŸŽˆ
This is one of my favorite photos of Nate from his wedding because I think it shows his happy, sweet, kind demeanor, and he was smiling a lot on the day he married Taylor, the love of his life. ❀️
Swipe through to see the beautiful details Nate incorporated on his suit - their wedding date embroidered under his suit collar, and his initials embroidered on his shirt sleeve. 😍
Guys don’t really have as many ways to add special details to their look, so I loved seeing how he added these subtle, elegant touches. πŸ‘Œ
One fun fact about Nate: He’s the brewmaster and one of the founders of Harding House Brewing Co., a new taproom-focused brewery in The Nations area of Nashville! 🍻
They use locally sourced ingredients (honey, hops, strawberries, etc.) to create seasonal, local craft beer. You should definitely check out the brewery, and also hop over to follow their IG at @hardinghousebrew ! (I’ve been there and can tell you the Honey Ale is delicious!) πŸ‘βœ¨
Cheers! ✨

We took these photos in the misty freezing rain, and it was so worth it! πŸ™ŒπŸΌ β˜”οΈ Lacey and McCauley's maternity session had been scheduled for months, and with their daughter's due date approaching fast, there was no time to reschedule. So despite a gray rainy day with temperatures in the 30s (we were hoping for snow ❄️) this beautiful and laid-back couple made the drive from Kentucky and powered through with the best "let's do this" attitudes! β˜€οΈ
We did mostly outdoor shots but also a few indoors, which I really love as well (I'll post another tomorrow - it's so hard to choose just one - with the rest coming to the blog soon!). πŸ“· ✨
This is such a big reminder that attitude is everything. Lacey and McCauley were so happy to do this shoot that it made the whole afternoon fun, and their daughter is so lucky that she has a mom and dad who'll go barefoot in the rain. β˜”οΈ πŸ’ƒ 
Thanks a million to @taraphillipshair for doing an amazing job on hair, makeup and styling, and also to @leipersforkdistillery for generously allowing us to use their space. ✨😊

Alden and her father during the father-daughter dance at the beautiful @thecordelle . πŸ’—πŸ˜­
Swipe through to see her dad's face, too! 😊✨
These candid wedding moments are my favorite parts of the day, and they're the main reason that I'm drawn to weddings! πŸ’—
I'm reminded in these moments that photographs are meaningful, and they matter, and they'll still be meaningful years and years and decades from now as they’re passed down to children and grandchildren. πŸ™ŒπŸΌ
....
If anyone is following my IG stories, you know that I'm in jury duty this week. πŸ˜• This is really bad timing for a wedding photographer who's working to beat holiday deadlines, BUT I'm rolling with it πŸ’ƒ and am working late into the night to make up the time. Bear with me and know that I'm getting everything out ASAP (and am checking my email during breaks!), and send me some good productivity vibes please! I’m sure you have a lot on your plate right now as well, so I’m sending those good vibes right back to you. ✨✨
Happy Tuesday, friends! Just keep showing up and we’ll get it all done! πŸ‘Š β˜€οΈ

Happy Friday!! πŸŽ‰ 
I've been finishing up Taylor and Nate's wedding gallery today, and I keep realizing that I have a big smile on my face as I edit because these two are so happy and adorable, it’s contagious! πŸ’—πŸ˜Š
(My husband always tells me that I smile when I'm editing pictures, and I guess I do.) ✨
.....
Today I delivered wedding albums, designed a family Christmas card, emailed out three album proofs, worked on finishing this wedding gallery, sent out a wedding photo timeline, and responded to emails. I'm taking a tiny break tonight to go out to dinner to celebrate my husband's birthday with our boys πŸ’— (Shogun Japanese Steakhouse because it’s always fun βœ¨βœ¨πŸ˜„) and then I'll be back at it because I have jury duty on Monday and I'm not sure how long that will take. πŸ€”

Alden's fall bridal session was a dream, and this wedding gown from @whitedressesboutique is stunning and so perfect for Alden! πŸ˜πŸ™ŒπŸΌ
We also loved photographing at this old stone villa in the country. πŸ‘Œ
(Just kidding - these were taken at a city park just a few feet from a busy highway with people honking at us!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚) But it has a romantic, European vibe, don't you think? Double tap if you agree! πŸ’—
So much can be done with the right light and some imagination. Alden and her mom suggested this spot and I knew it would be perfect! (We also photographed in Germantown and with her piano. 🎢) Stay tuned for more from this session! 😊 πŸ“·
...
I'm trying to keep up with social media posting but just know that I'm working day and night to do #allthethings for my clients as the holiday season is in full swing! I'm committed to getting all wedding photos, family session photos, and prints and albums out before Christmas, and my IG might have to take a backseat for a few days. But I hope you'll stick with me. 
Happy Thursday! β˜€οΈ ...

Happy Friday! I'm Rebecca, a wedding and lifestyle photographer in Nashville! πŸ‘‹ 
It's almost December, but my schedule isn't winding down just yet! I'll be photographing a beautiful wedding tomorrow, and I have one more coming up after Christmas - both in downtown Nashville - along with a few other sessions. πŸ“· Can you believe we're almost at the end of 2018? 
Here are a few facts about me:
1. I love emojis and exclamation points! I worked for years as a journalist, where the tone was mostly serious and no exclamation points were allowed, so now I use them all the time because I can! #noshame 
2. I've lived in Oregon, Michigan, New Hampshire, Arkansas, and Tennessee! But I mostly grew up in a small Arkansas town, where I learned to love exploring the woods, riding horses (we had two 🐴!), swimming in the river, and growing flowers. πŸŒΈβ˜€οΈ
3. All the jobs I’ve had in my life have helped me in my photography - from teaching high school English and preschool to editing magazines, writing and photographing for newspapers. So much of photography is about people, and I’ve worked with people from all walks of life. πŸ‘Œ
4. I'm mom to two boys, 14 and 10! One is an artist and theater kid, and the other loves science (like his dad πŸ’—πŸ˜Š) and indoor rock climbing. They're my heart, and I can't believe they're so big already. 😭
5. I don’t watch Netflix often, but I just binge-watched the thriller β€œHomecoming” with Julia Roberts (based on the podcast by @gimletmedia) while editing photos, and I loved it! πŸ™ŒπŸΌ
6. My new favorite productivity app is called β€œThings,” and it helps you create to-do lists, plan and organize your time in a user-friendly way. I live by my lists!
