I am still photographing strong with only one week left before Christmas! I have been so busy photographing everyone else's little ones and family that I haven't had time to photograph my own daughter for our own Christmas cards! Will I be able to get Jade photographed, printed and mailed before next Thursday? I doubt it! There doesn't seem to be a break anywhere in the near future. I feel like I am on the pink boat in The Chocolate Factory! Good news though, I am am meeting some really great people and seeing past brides/grooms with their new families and having a blast photographing them!

Jennifer and Neal are back from their honeymoon and I couldn't wait to show you some of their wedding photos. I have too many to show you so I will blog over several days. Tonight I am blogging about the ceremony. The ceremony took place at Lady of The Lake Catholic Church in Hendersonville. We had tons of fun with the groomsmen first. We walked around and photographed the guys just hanging out and messing with Neal. Then Jennifer and Neal decided to see each other before the ceremony in order to get more photos and get to the reception as quickly as possible. Of course Jennifer had to update her facebook status before walking down the aisle. I love it! Then there was the gettaway with the party bus! What a luxury! That bus was sweet! I will be blogging their portraits next, and later their reception photographs. Congratulations Jennifer and Neal!

Sweet Shannon, I must say thank you for your professionalism, talented and warm personal interest you gave our daughter Morgan Pate, for the Pate-Haynes wedding. Thank you for creating such a beautiful night for all of us to remember. We love all of the pictures, amazing. You didn't miss a beat or picture!! We now get to relive the evening as you took us from the beginning to the end of a magical night. The joy in the bridal party, families, and she with Mark, her new husband was reflected from your eyes to ours forever. Bless you and your talents, my friend. You brought your sweet spirit, and knew how to get the fun pictures with the just the right touch. Thank you for going way beyond our hopes and becoming our new friend in the process. This was a beautiful night and a Halloween to remember. Thank you and your family for sharing this night with us. We are blessed. Happily we will share your name with the highest regard. We are the proudest parents. Love you and thank you, Cheryl and Ron Pate

Well as you know, this is the time for family portraits. Many people choose to have their families photographed in the fall because of the beautiful colors and then, as an added bonus, use them for Christmas cards and gifts. There is still time to get your portrait done and back to you so you can make Christmas cards. Just give me a call and we can set a time. Also, if you have family coming in town over Thanksgiving it is the perfect time to get everyone in your extended family in the picture. I have 2 sessions open on Wednesday the 25th and 3 available for Black Friday, that is if you are not to tired from early shopping! If you are interested just let me know. $100 gets you up to one hour and 30 hires photos on CD.

We had fantastic weather for family portrait day here in Franklin, Tennessee - and tomorrow is more of the same! Yay! I even got to do Jade's portrait in between sessions. Downloaded and I'll get to them as soon as I am done editing Morgan's wedding picts. I hope everyone spent some time outside today! I'll back out to do more of the same Sunday.

Sammy is One! I first photographed Sammy as a baby. Now he is running around and a year old! He was so interested in the hill that I got my exercise that day! What a cutie! I really have fun with these youngsters. Child photography is so rewarding!

The Davidson's family portrait turned out so nice with all of the pretty colors in the background. Here a just a few of the portraits they received from their session. It is only $100 for a one hour session and you get a Hi Res CD with up to 30 photos!
I had a wedding on Halloween so I didn't get to watch Jade trick or treat, but I did manage to turn her blonde hair black and transform her into a beautiful Japanese princess! I took some quick picts of her as we both rushed in different directions. She was off to the Pumpkinfest sponsored by the People's Church and I was off to my fun spirited wedding! I hope everyone had a fun dressing up this weekend!

I had so much fun at CJs Off the Square last night! They food and drinks were fabulous! A Catered Affair provided the awesome food (tomato BLT is still calling me!) and Silver Strings provided the beautiful music. If you haven't checked this great venue out, you need to! They host weddings and private parties and do such a superb job! I love photographing at CJ's. It is so beautiful, as you can tell from these photos.
