Landslyde, one of Nashville’s hottest country music duos, invited me to hang out with them one night and practice my photography skills….

Blaze & Desiree are friends of mine at Trader Joe’s and i LOVE them, they are super sweet and have rockin voices.

They needed some updated promotional shots for their upcoming shows….what do you think?

Their next show is at the Listening Room on Feb 17th @ 8pm…they are awesome!

When i was in Knoxville for Thanksgiving, i was able to do a fun little engagement photo shoot with Nick & Kristen! We had a blast, and the “Old City” of the downtown provided for some awesome backgrounds! Here are some of my favorites:

My friend Erin flew up from TN the week before i moved to help me pack, hang out, and drive back to TN with me. We spent an entire day in Boston so i could get my last haircut on Newbury St. (Salon Marc Harris is the best!) and say goodbye to my favorite city. It was the most beautiful day and we took some great pictures!

Things i will miss in Boston….gelato, Mike’s Pastries, mob watching in the North End, shopping on Newbury St., Coach at Copley, swan boat rides in the gardens, seafood at Legal Seafood’s, pizza at Bertucci’s…

I have a new love. His name is Corel. He’s patient, very kind to me, forgets the past with the click of a button, and makes everything in life look spectacular. You might have heard of him. His full name is Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo X2. 🙂

I recently got a new Nikon for my birthday. Photography has always been a love of mine, but i new things would only get better with a better camera….step 1. After a year of following so many beautiful photography blogs, i realized “wait, these pictures aren’t always taken so perfectly, they get EDITED to look this way!” Which leads to step 2…

Yes, the light-bulb went off. So i asked Elizabeth, whom i went to college with and whose blog i LOVE for the pictures (wicked talented!), what editing program she uses. Finally, a program for people who don’t have Macs…Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo X2! I did some research, bought a book, got a free 30 day trial of the program, and i love love love it! It’s a good start into the world of photo editing….I’m sure there are much more complicated programs! But for someone who has never taken any photography classes i highly recommend it! And thanks Elizabeth for the fantastic advice!

I recently did a little photo shoot with the girls we babysit once a month and their parents…here are just a few:
