The Cunninghams

It's so much fun when our clients come to pick up their portraits. We just love seeing the excitement on their faces! Amy and Nelson Cunningham have been clients of ours for years. In fact, I remember taking Bridal Portraits of them "way back when". Well, they have waited several years to have a "complete" family portrait to display over their sofa and today's the day! Thanks Cunninghams! We hope you enjoy it for years to come.

Classic Beauty

Let's face it...there is a lot of imagery out there these days.  In fact, we are almost bombarded by it.  With cameras in phones, Facebook, television, advertising, billboard, catalogs, magazines, etc... it is everywhere!  And, unbeknownst to so many of us, our tastes can be very influenced by the images we see.  Because of the barage we endure, companies have to do MORE and MORE and MORE to get our attention.  So, images have become LOUDER, more graphic, more "shocking", etc...  Portraits, in turn, are going through a similar trend.  You hear people say, "We aren't formal people, so our portraits need to be casual."  Agreed!  But "casual" doesn't necessarily mean "standing by a drainage ditch with grafitti".  After all, years from now, can't you just hear your future relatives wondering what the significance is of these locations?  "Did Grandma Emma live under a bridge?" they will ask.  lol.

I believe some of the best portraiture is SIMPLE.  "Casual" can often be determined by an expression, clothing, prop, or location.  However, despite today's trends, I still try to keep the focus on the CHILD.  That's what I want to see first!  And, there is a place for both formal, classic portraiture and casual portraiture.  Either way, you want the portrait to stand the test of TIME. 

This is a perfect example.  It is more formal due to the fact she is wearing a dress and her expression is subdued.  But, does it get your attention without SCREAMING?   Yes!  And, will it be as beautiful 30 years from now?  Yes!  Flip through art books or take a stroll through a museum.  What do you still see on the walls?  What do investors still clamor over?  Beauty.

Lillian -12 months

It's always bittersweet when one of our babies graduates from one of our Baby Ensembles.  Today is no exception.  This little girl is the third child we have photographed for this family.  Lillian gave us about 5 minutes before she was ready to leave.  After that, she decided she was 1 and it was time to move on with her life! :)  Enjoy!

A Tween Vogue Session

So many parents are great when it comes to having their children's portraits taken when they are babies, and then maybe at 2 or 3 years old.  But so often, after the kids get a little older, parents forget that the tween years are also a perfect time for a portrait session.  Now granted, it has to be a bit "cooler" session than when they were babies and thats why we created Vogue Kids!  A perfect blend of today's styles and colors, yet classicly lit and refined.

We wanted to share a few images with you from a recent Vogue Kids session we did with this young lady.  I must say, I have never met someone you had such an effortless gaze into the camera.  What a great time we had and I believe we came away with some awesome portraits too!  Enjoy!

A lIttle bit of Lillian: Jackson, Tn baby Photographers

I wanted to share just a little from Lillian's 6 month session. Babies are so cute when they just start to sit up.  We have had the privilege to create portraits for Lillian's brother and sister and we are loving watching Lillian grow up too!
