April & Kevin | A Baby Announcement | Memphis, TN | Memphis Lifestyle Photographer

GUYS! I cannot even believe I am sharing this blog post with you all! So a couple a weeks ago I got a call from my best friend April. We had the usual girl chat and catch up on life. Life has been crazy busy for both of us and with her living in Mississippi, our phone calls are the only way we can keep up! Well April decided to play a fun little trick on me to tell me THE BIGGEST MOST EXCITING news since she told me she was getting married! April began telling me she had someone she knew wanting to book me for pictures. She told me this mystery person was looking to book a session to announce they were pregnant and the person's name was KEVIN. I'm not going to lie, it totally took my (tired)

Allison | LLFTN August Meetup | Collierville, TN | Memphis Portrait Photographer

Meet another one of the amazing models we had the joy of shooting at the Looks Like Film TN Meetup in August. This is the beautiful Allison! I loved getting to work with Allison. She has such a fun and fierce look. We had so much fun posing in the trees for this set. I cannot wait to work with her again. To see the full gallery of this set go here!

Elizabeth & Brandon | A River Engagement | Collierville, TN | Memphis Engagement Photographer

So I am sure by now you guys are tired of hearing me talk about these meetups. BUT I CAN'T STOP, WON'T STOP. I love them!! I especially love moments like this set. Elizabeth and Brandon are actually photographers themselves. (And AMAZING ones at that) Most photographers tend to avoid being in front of the camera but these two greatly embraced it and TOTALLY ROCKED IT. Like do you see these two?! They are flipping adorable! Thanks again you guys for coming and being incredible models. It was so great to meet you two!

Morgan | A Woods & Water Portrait Session | Collierville, TN | Memphis Portrait Photographer

This was my second time getting to work with this lady! Morgan is such a dream! The girl moves like butter. She is constantly moving her body and face in the perfect way. Just when you think you couldn't love her more, she does something else that is breathtakingly stunning. Morgan thanks for being a part of the Looks Like Film TN August Meetup. You are so much fun and such a joy to be around. I cannot wait to work with you more! To see the full gallery go here!

Jennifer & Caleb | A River Couple Session | Collierville, TN | LLFTN August Meetup | Memphis Pho

I love meetups! I think it's an incredibly fun way to meet new people. There are so many creatives in this city! It's always fun to spend time getting to talk to other photographers. But it's even more fun getting to spend time with fun people who volunteer to be in front of our cameras and go for our crazy ideas! Caleb & Jennifer are one good looking couple. They also have a BEAUTIFUL daughter. They have the most amazing smiles. Caleb is rocking one of the coolest beards I've seen in a while. These two were so willing to climb out in a river for some fun photos. Thanks again you two for coming and being a part of the fun!

Desiree | Senior Session | Memphis Senior Photographer

So this year I brought back the senior representative program for Shelby Renee Photo. Last year was such a blast and I just had to work with more seniors this year. I LOVE senior sessions. I think it's mostly because I remember what they were feeling. I remember the excitement of getting my pictures made before all of the senior events and requirements. Although, I have to say seniors these days are wayyyyy more put together than I remember being. I mean like where is the blue eyeliner and white eyeshadow? haha! Desiree was one of the first girls to apply for my senior rep program and I could not be anymore excited! She is so so sweet, funny, creative, and just a loveable person! I look forw

Windsor-Cummings Family | Memphis Library Family Session | Memphis Family Photographer

Tommye & Travis are two of my dear friends that I have had the joy of knowing since high school. They were high school sweethearts and now years later they are married and have a sweet baby girl. This summer they wanted to get updated pictures of their daughter for her 3rd birthday as well as of their family. If you are from Memphis (or the south) you know that August heat is NO JOKE. So rather than the usual outdoor shoot, we opted to shoot inside the Memphis Central Library. We managed to "quietly" capture their family without any disturbance to the number of people studying. I'm so glad we chose to do their family session here. It was the perfect location.

Payton & Blake | An Abandoned Auto Shop Family Session | Memphis Family Photographer

You know how you meet people when you're in middle school and you promise to be friends forever? Well I have to admit I'm one of the lucky ones that can honestly say the close knit group of ladies that I was best friends with in middle school & high school are still some of my best friends in my life. We went from cheering each other on the ball fields to cheering each other on in life. I've watched them become wives, mothers, graduate college, start careers, and so many other milestones. It's been the coolest part of growing up. Jessica is one of those friends I've known for easily 16 years. She is kind, hilarious, encouraging, and one of the most supportive people I know. She is now a moth

Woodard Family | Maternity Family Session | Memphis Photographer

The Woodard Family. I seriously adore this sweet family. I've had the opportunity to shoot a few sessions of this family now and each time I fall more in love with them. This family of four is quickly about to become a sweet family of five. Brandon and Christen are two incredibly sweet and funny parents who are madly in love. Their kiddos have the biggest personalities and kept us laughing the whole time. Thanks again for allowing me to capture such a sweet time in your family's life. I cannot wait to meet the newest addition to the Woodard family.
