Chattanooga landmarks

That's what Gretchen had in mind...

Amidst all the rowers on the Tennessee River for the U.S.'s second largest regatta (The Head of the Hooch), we were able to tuck under the Walnut street bridge and find spectacular light. The early morning sun felt especially good this morning.

Who's taking care of whom here?

Laney Marie Updated

I think I'm going to talk to all moms in the future about me wearing my running shoes when I photograph one-year-olds!

Laney, our shining star, has become a VERY BUSY GIRL. She doesn't have much time for these adults! (That would be me!) But, how cute she continues to be. Her smiles are dear and I have to be very animated and quick with the camera to capture her.

How fitting that she's so busy. I do seem to remember that her mom, Lindsey, was also a very busy girl with not much time for me, when I photographed HER for the first time twenty years ago.

Laney is a star!

Last spring Jeannie decided that we needed to be more visible in our community. Many of our clients love Strasburg children's clothing and we knew they allowed a limited number of local photographers to display their portraits of children wearing Strasburg. After an initial contact and showing them some samples of our photography, they graciously allowed us to put a custom album of photographs in the store. We were able to choose from several years' work. It turned out fabulously!

Before long the local manager, now a regional manager, contacted us to see if we knew a baby that we could photograph wearing a certain Strasburg Christening gown for a large formal portrait to display in the mall store, showing off the clothing. Laney immediately came to mind. Nicole brought the gown to our studio and Laney proceeded to make us all look incredible. She is outgoing, beautiful, and full of herself. There were several excellent choices. Strasberg chose their favorite and we've just placed it in the most visible, obvious location in their store... directly behind the register with the Christening gowns.

She also brought a sweet, pink dress complete with bows and hand smocked flowers. It would be perfect for a birthday or special celebration. Check it out!

Go see the original portrait (24x30) at Strasburg Children, if you can. The web just doesn't do justice to the hand smocking, beautiful lace and flowing design. It would honor any worthy child for their special day.

Harlee Regan

We thought we'd never get to photograph her! The weather has not cooperated this fall. Just when the big day would arrive, so would the rain. With as dry as our weather has been, it was great to get the rain, but now I'm even more pleased to have been able to photograph her on a cool, clear afternoon. The light was perfect, as was she!

She loves being photographed and from all I see, she also loves being a little girl in her "princess" dress. She was a joy to be with.

And a buddy had to get in a few!

Harper in her granddad's antique Christening gown

Harper came to see us today for her six month portrait. Her mom, Laurie, couldn't be here because of her work schedule, so her grandma, Rachel stepped-in admirably to be our Number One Assistant. She gives us the most beautiful, soft expressions. She is a doll.

Her gown belonged to her granddad with an updated bib ( with her own monogram ) just for her.

Other than being busy with her teething chores, she was fantastic to have in our camera room.
