Steampunk Inspired Engagement Session, Rhonda & Jake

off in the distance I could see a man with a capricious mustache and top hat. He reached for the hand of a tall blond in a chestnut colored corset. It was as if I was transported to the very pages of a Victorian-era fiction novel. This was to good to be true. This was not a mirage, this was my 10AM appointment with Rhonda and Jake for an engagement session. THEY LOOKED AMAZING!!! They captured the essence of Steampunk fashion! We would spend our time photographing with old steam trains and a stylized set provided by Touched By Time Vintage Rental. What I loved most about photographing Jake and Rhonda, was witnessing how much they love one another. I’ll have you know, chivalry is not dead! Maybe Jake is from the victorian era???? He is a gentleman. The type of gentleman you would find in a love novel! Rhonda and Jake, congrats on your engagement!!! I am so happy you found one another. It makes for a great TRUE love story.

Evan The Blessing

I had a splendid time with first time expecting parents Courtney & Jason! The Vondenberger’s due date was April 4th. Last time I spoke with Courtney, they were still waiting on baby boy Evan Michael! Courtney and Jason have been together 7 years. They are so excited for their family to expand! Courtney was 36 weeks during the maternity session. I asked her what she loved most about pregnancy. “The spirituality of it. Thinking about moments yet to come.” The best piece of advice she could give baby Evan is “Love God, live humbly and be an honest man.” What a smart mama! The best piece of advice the Vondenberger’s could give to expecting parents is “Cherish every moment, good or bad. Be open with each other. Keep each other involved and equally engaged in this experience.” Prayers to Courtney, Jason and baby Evan. I wish you a safe delivery and a mellow journey to Nashville.

Courtney — Thank you for not going into labor on our little adventure!

Photo of the Day ‘5 Generations”

sfjssg

There are two sides to my photography. I love editing photos to look whimsical and colorful …… but also love the rawness and simplicity of others! I dream of my photographs garnishing the pages of National Geographic… ONE DAY! I wish I had more time to photograph the real world we live in.
