J & J Memphis Engagement Photography Session

J & J Memphis Engagement Photography Session

It feels so great to blog all these amazing sessions! I am still three months or so behind, but I am slowly catching up. (Note: all current work has been edited; it just takes me a minute to get them to the blog.)

Jaleesa e-mailed me and was very interested in setting up an engagement shoot. After going back and forth a few times, she and J came over to the home photography studio for an in person interview. After that, they decided they wanted to go ahead and book their Memphis engagement shoot with me. YAY!

They were looking for a downtown Memphis urban shoot. Although Jo is from Memphis, Jaleesa is not; she is from Kentucky. She and Jo met at Murray State University. (Side note: I do remember getting college “invites” from them in the mail waaaaaaay back when.) Anyway, as any southern girl will do, she followed her man to Memphis. I wish I could tell you I was photographing their wedding next year, but they are getting married in Kentucky. I’m quite sure the Bluegrass state would welcome me back *wink*

We took these in the middle of summer, and let me tell you…it was HOT. These guys handled it no problem, though. One final thought: Jo DOES NOT SMILE. I tried everything. I really did.:)

I know Jaleesa has been waiting to see this blog post; thanks again for letting me take these photos for you!

Blessings and Peace,
Cindy

The M Family {Collierville Family Photographer}

The M Family {Collierville Family Photographer}

Honestly, it’s probably one of the highest “honors” I can receive when the owner of the venues I frequent, a lot, contacts me about photographing their family. Because, if we’re being honest, I know they know tons of very talented artists. Actually, it was Tim’s wife who messaged me on FB one day stating they needed updated photos. I was out at Maple Grove Farms so much this year photographing weddings, I was only too happy to take photos from Tim and Nicole.

The day we took these photos, it was a very humid day (but no rain, yay!) One thing I’ve learned over the years in dealing with kiddos, is they are the boss. You’ve gotta keep them interested, reigned in (as much as you can), and the rest should follow suit. When you have two boys, they are going to be BUSY. You just gotta let kids be kids. Tim and Nicole were super relaxed, and that really helps during a shoot. They are definitely pros when it comes to photo time!

We started off with a few family photos, and we moved to some photos of just the kids. I promise you…you don’t have to wait long for genuine and real expressions in children’s photography. I think the proof is below! Nicole wanted to get C with his trucks. We went back to some undisturbed land at MGF, and just let him go. C is not a big fan of getting dirty, but I do love the concept and story told in these photos.

It’s always a pleasure to see and work with these guys. Thanks for your support!

Blessings and Peace,
Cindy

Garrett’s Collierville High School Senior Pictures

Garrett’s Collierville High School Senior Pictures

Garrett and his family are some of the first people I met when I moved here in 2007. It seems so odd to me that he is now a senior in high school. If you know his mom, you know you can’t be around her for five minutes without laughing, a lot! She is so much fun! I was thrilled when S called me and wanted me to take her son’s high school senior photos. Like most parents, she wasn’t looking forward to what the required school photographer would provide.

Our first choice was this AH-MAZING home out in Collierville that used to be a nursery. Honestly, it is a photographer’s dream, and I couldn’t wait to photograph G’s senior photos there. But, I guess you can’t predict what I’m going to write next. It’s a four letter word. R.A.I.N. Yes! It was practically a monsoon the day before (or weekend before) we were to take these photos. I doubt we’d get out of the ground without getting really wet and really muddy. Well, so much for our amazing location, sigh.

Fortunately, the Collierville Square is perfect in instances like this. It’s mostly concrete and dries rather quickly. If you have a high school senior (and one that is active) there is hardly ANY time on the calendar to make these sessions work. Rescheduling isn’t likely to happen, so we just had to make this date work.

Now, Garrett is such a nice kid. (Sorry, G! I hope you didn’t cringe when you read that!) But, seriously, Collierville High School has some stellar kids attending there. G runs track (I don’t think it’s cross country). So, we started off with a very nice formal outfit and a casual outfit at the Square. Then, we decided to get a little adventurous and try some photos at the track. Well, the gate was locked. What to do???? I really wanted these shots. I guess if you’re a Collierville student, you know how we got in, and I will leave it at that! *wink* Let’s just say, this 39 year old held her own, and that’s all I have to say about that.

Once S and G received the photos, S wrote me about how pleased they were with the portraits. And, you know what? THAT’S EXACTLY WHY I DO WHAT I DO.

Thanks, guys! I can’t wait to see where G ends up going to school!

Blessings and Peace,
Cindy

Collierville baby photographer {baby J}

Collierville baby photographer {baby J}

I have absolutely ADORED working with this wonderful family during J’s baby plan! This is his 3rd installment of the baby plan. (Side note…we’ve already completed his fourth session; I’m that behind, and I’m THAT sad our baby package plan is over:().

So…as I was saying! This family is wonderful. I know all of my blog posts seem to mention rain. I know we don’t live in Seattle, but sometimes I feel like we do with all the rain we get. I’m so glad I have my home photography studio as a backup when sessions NEED to happen. It was another rainy Saturday (the blog post before this…that happened on this day, too). These guys arrived at the studio in sprinkles of rain. We took all kinds of great photos (as you can see). The sky opened up briefly, and we decided to make a run for the local spray park in Collierville. Kim had a great idea of putting the little guy in a tub of water and letting him get all wet. Unfortunately, the spray park water was COLD, COLD, COLD. The bubbles helped some! I promise you…the skies opened up. The rain came down torrentially. All Kim and I could do is laugh. But, we made it through this session! We sure did make some fun memories and some great photos together!

I can’t wait to share the last set from J’s baby plan and tell you all about that adventure…eventually:)

Blessings and Peace,
Cindy

Kim & Chris’ Maple Grove Farm Wedding

Kim & Chris’ Maple Grove Farm Wedding

It’s no secret by now that Maple Grove Farms in Collierville is one of my favorite wedding venues to photograph a wedding. (In fact, I have another wedding there this weekend!) I really enjoy working with the crew out there.

On Kim & Chris’ wedding day, well, it sure was a day to remember. It was the STORMIEST day of the year. So, if you can recall back in the summer the day when we received torrential downpours, lots of lightning strikes, well, that would be this day. Do you see where I’m going here???

It started out ok. I thought, wow, it’s all going to be alright, and I won’t need this umbrella I’m carrying, right? Wrong.

It had rained all weekend, all morning. Everything was wet. It stopped raining about an hour before the ceremony. Just long enough for MGF to put chairs out. I arrive on site, and it’s not raining. Ok…it’s good.

No rain while taking the before hand photos.

Kim starts walking down the aisle, and the sprinkles started coming. If you look closely in the images, you can see the sprinkle drops.

We finish the ceremony, and go inside. At this point, it’s a full on rain.

We take photos under the covered patio out back. Ok…we make that work.

We go inside and proceed to take the first dance, caking cutting photos, etc. All of a sudden, the biggest, loudest boom I’ve ever heard happened. There is a torrential downpour. (For my Florida friends, it’s like those hurricane rains. VERY VERY STRONG) The phrase that comes to mind next is, “Where were you when the lights went out in this wedding?” Well, that was a first. All of the cake cutting photos were taken in the dark. Not bad, right?

Well, Kim and Chris waited a long time to get married. I know it was worth the wait! Thanks for letting me document the day for you!

Blessings and Peace,
Cindy
