Jared & Kaitlyn, along with India (4), Grayson (3), and Grant (6 months) love to explore nature! They were ready to walk through the trails at Overton Park, play on the playground, and look for fish in the lake! These kiddos had so much energy and you can tell they have so much fun as a family! There’s so much love and joy in their eyes the whole time, I know they are going to have so many more adventures to come! 

Memphis in-home couples session with Brenna + Chris.

Once Brenna and Chris described their midtown Memphis home to me, I was determined to shoot there! With its amazing wallpaper, beautiful backyard, and within walking distance to a local skatepark with urban art- it was a dream home for this perfect couple! 

I got to know Brenna and Chris through these pictures: an aerialist couple, who slow dances to the radio, bakes vegan chocolate chip cookies, practices in their backyard, holds hands and toes, and just enjoys being in each other’s presence! 

Forreal couple goals!

SO happy I got to take graduation pictures for this amazing girl!

Danielle was a double major at the University of Memphis in Spanish and Psychology, while also studying and performing in dance classes and concert, was very involved in the University, and knew so many incredible spots of campus from her tour-giving days. She is smart, talented, and adorable!

Just check out some images from her session!

She just announced that she was selected as a Fulbright Finalist for the English Teaching Assistantship in SPAIN! THIS GIRL IS GOING PLACES! Congratulations, Danielle!

Memphis Dance Photography Investigation

I recently had some time to explore a personal project that I love- capturing dance! 

In my sessions with dancers, I like the environment to effect the movement, and to capture the motion of the dancers as if its a performance, and not just snapping on the glamorous moments of dance. 

Growing up a dancer, I understand the hard work that does into dance, and that's what I like to display within my dance images. 

We found some cool locations, played around with improvisation structures, and discovered some cool moments!

Check out some of them below!

Piece-in-Progress: “Flaws”

This year, I’m working with a great group of girls at my studio to create a piece entitled “Flaws” to touch on “conflicts of body image within one’s self”. We’re using a broken mirror as a prop to show how restricted and judgemental we can get on ourselves, and how to break free from the mirror to accept yourself.

I’m exploring this with my dancers on a deeper level than most of them have gotten- including journaling and discussing different ideas around body image and what the mirror can reflect.

I’d love to get into the heads of others who’ve had issues with body image, the mirror, and accepting themselves, and use that to help show that body image is something so many people deal with in different ways.

If you have a story you’d like to tell that I can use to bring this concept to life, showcase this issue and bring light to the beauty within everyone, and share with my dancers to contribute to their characters- please share it with me below!
