Baby Ian: Memphis Newborn Photographer

Baby Ian: Memphis Newborn Photographer

I first met K at some of the Indian Wedding Events I had photographed. She’s also been at several birthday parties I’ve photographed. Well, in short. She keeps good company, as they say. She has some wonderful friends with whom I’m blessed to call friends and clients. When these friends found out K was expecting, they immediately gave her my name, so she could contact me about taking baby I’s newborn photos. I was so excited to have the opportunity to work with this family after seeing them at so many events I’d been to.

For this session, this awesome family came to my home photography studio located in Collierville, TN. (The amazing Alisha came because that’s what good friends do. Thanks, girl!) We really had the best time, well, playing with Ian. He’s so precious. AND TINY. My goodness. Five pounds of awesomeness right there I tell you.

One day baby Ian will look back at these photos and ask, “What’s with all the Superman stuff?” Well…what I can tell you is that Superheros were all the rage in 2014. Sorry Kid :).

I’m so excited these guys are on the baby plan, so I’ll be seeing more of them than I already do:)

Blessings and Peace,
Cindy

Kimmie & Matt’s Maple Grove Farm Wedding

Kimmie & Matt’s Maple Grove Farm Wedding

**GENERAL ANNOUNCEMENT** I’ve been getting LOTS of wedding inquiries lately and have had THREE couples book their weddings for next year this week alone :).

I’m sure this couple looks familiar to you because I blogged their Memphis engagement photo session here. CLICK HERE

I love photographing weddings at Maple Grove Farm in Collierville, TN for several reasons. One, the place is gorgeous. Two, the owners are SUPER SUPER NICE. Three, they have some pretty amazing wedding coordinators there. Four, it’s less than five miles from my house. I mean… shall I go on????

When I showed up that day, it was actually a chilly day in May. I was glad I had on my suit. The leaves on the trees had bloomed, and everything looked beautiful. I’ll be honest…the inside wasn’t decorated yet, and I was a little nervous if they would pull it all off or not. But, one thing I’ve learned about Kimmie’s family is they aren’t afraid of hard work. They all got there, and the barn was decorated in no time.

Kimmie is full of spunk and personality and laughter. She really makes Matt’s eyes light up when he sees her. I love photographing weddings where the couple just completely adores each other. The couple elected NOT to see each other ahead of time, and some of my favorite moments from this wedding is where Matt sees her for the first time walking down the aisle. It really just melts my heart.

What I also love about Kimmie’s family is…what you see is what you get. There are no social pretenses going on here. Kimmie’s dad walked her down the aisle in his ball cap. I’ll admit it was a first for me, but it was totally them. I’m glad they kept their wedding real.

Kimmie was sweet to write an unsolicited review before she had even received her wedding photos, and she had this to say: “Cindy is amazing! She had the most reasonably priced package that I could find and ended up doing my engagement photos, bridal portraits, as well as shooting my wedding. She is quick to respond to any texts, calls, or emails. Her pictures are gorgeous, and her turn around time was very quick (I received proofs of my bridal portraits in just 3 days, and engagement photos only took about a week.). She is very easy to work with and made my wedding day go very smoothly, and I fully intend to use her in the future (for family/kid pictures).”

Thank you so much Matt and Kimmie for letting me share your wedding day with you! I tell you…I’m really the one who is blessed.

Blessings and Peace,
Cindy

Ben & Sydney’s Jackson TN Wedding

Ben & Sydney’s Jackson TN Wedding

I was actually on my way to photograph a wedding in Batesville, MS when Ben called me inquiring about photographing his wedding in Jackson, TN. Yes, my life gets kind of crazy sometimes! So I pulled over in my car and took down his info and called him back on my next office day.

Life is kind of funny sometimes.

It turns out that Ben grew up in Collierville. Well, if you know ANYTHING about Collierville, we may not know each other, but we might have a mutual friend in common. I guess that’s why I love calling Collierville my home. It’s not too big, but it’s small enough that I can still see someone I know if I’m out.

Well, sorry for chasing that rabbit. I say all that to say that Ben’s dad purchased a gift certificate for his mom to have a portrait session for Christmas last year that she didn’t have an opportunity to use yet. When they found out Ben hired the same photographer, all we could do is laugh, really! I guess the family has the same (good! :)) taste!!!! FUNNY.

Ok… Back to Ben and Sydney. I had the best time getting to know them when we took their engagement photos in downtown Memphis. You can see their session by clicking here: CLICK HERE

Ben and Sydney married on May 3, 2014 (yes, I am THAT behind in blogging). Things were just started to heat up as they do in May. Though Ben & Sydney wed at their church, they decided to have a first look and other outside photos at the Lambuth University in Jackson, TN. Their campus has some really beautiful buildings! We then proceeded to the church, where I think we were at for only 30 minutes…the time it took for them to get married :). Their very quick reception was held at Flatiron Grille in Jackson, TN.

I’m so happy I was the one to be able to document Ben & Sydney’s special wedding day. Many blessings for you in your years of marriage!

PS…For all my loyal readers…Get ready! Wedding season is about to hit the blog!

Blessings and Peace,
Cindy

Alexa’s Collierville High School Senior Photos

Alexa’s Collierville High School Senior Photos

Come meet Alexis, Collierville High School Class of 2014. The truth of the matter is I took these photos at the beginning of May, and I do realize it’s September. So, yes, five whole months have passed since I took these. You know, a whole lot can happen in five months…like graduation…summer…and starting college. And, that’s where I pickup with Alexis. Mom knew she wanted some nicer photos that the “obligatory contracted school photographer”, so she contacted me to see if I was available. I was more than happy to take them for Alexis. Believe it or not, she and my daughter were on a soccer team way back when. It’s hard to believe that Alexis is now a FRESHMAN at college. Life passes quickly.

Alexis is extremely athletic, bright, and a very sweet gal. I had fun hanging out with them on a very steamy day in May at the Botanic Gardens. Be on the lookout for another blog post featuring Alexis with her family! That’s right…mom was smart enough to hire me for family photos. Ah…they are only in our folds for so long *sniff sniff*

Thanks for a great session, Alexis! I know you’re doing amazing things in the wonderful world of college.

Blessings and Peace,
Cindy

Our Memphis photography style

Our Memphis photography style

I wanted to take a few minutes to explain a little bit about my style as a photographer. This is true whether you are a high school senior looking to have your portraits made or if you need newborn photos, children’s photos, family photos, or wedding photos. You name it.

One thing I often hear when clients hire me is that my photos don’t look overprocessed or over glamorized. What this means is a child’s or student’s eyes don’t look like zombie eyes when he/she looks at you on the screen. They are true to life. I don’t believe in overprocessing my photos either. Folks… I’m creating a portrait. It’s timeless. It’s not a trend that will go out of style with the next new thing that Photoshop introduces. These portraits will live in your home forever, so why should they look like something that was a trend happening way back when. I also think that skin should look like skin. It should have some texture to it. We can look nice, but not so smooth it looks fake. That’s just MY STYLE.

I also take time to discuss options. Options like locations. What scene best fits you and the look you want hanging in your home. What clothes best represent you and your style. For high school students, we have a consultation that involves colors and how clothes fit. This session is NOT making students look so different they aren’t recognizable. I have my own high school senior, and I certainly want to remember her as WHO SHE IS. Do I want her to look her best. Yes, but there is a fine line to looking good and going over the top.

Our custom photo sessions are just that. They take place at a location we have chosen. We go to more than one scene. We capture multiple expressions. In short, I try to capture the true spirit of the family, child, high school student, and yes, even newborn.

It’s all real. It’s as real as the heart of the photographer and the artistry I use to capture the uniqueness and absolute true you. There’s nothing fake here or overdone. At the end of the day, it’s a portrait that represents Y.O.U.

Just a few words from my heart!

Blessings and Peace!
Cindy

Psalm 139:17-18
How precious are your thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be outnumbered. I can’t even count them; they outnumber the grains of sand. And when I wake up, You are still with me.
