oh my my! i've got the wall art fever!!!, nashville tn lifestyle family photographer

Well, where to begin???? As the oldest pretty of this gorgeous mama informed me last week, this was our 4th session together.  Miss Gorgeous Mama & I have been working on this materpiece for the past 2 years.  It is a collection of canvas gallery wraps, standouts, float wraps, gallery wrap image blocks and framed images.  Measuring, adding, taking away, moving, renovating and finally completed our work...or so we thought because now we have this years images and we are already brainstorming on the addtional years placement and new creations!

This is the perfect example of living your art, being your session, feeling your family photoshoot.  You didn't get your familys pictures done to let them sit on a disk or in a box or 2 or 3 framed around the house!  Enjoy them! Every day! Stop in your tracks to admire the specs of green caught in your daughters eyes, chuckle at the sight of your sons crooked smile, let your heart flutter at the remarkable way your Mr. Man looks at you when you don't know it....this is your life!  This is what we are enjoy it! 

BIG PROPS to Miss Gorgeous Mama!  We put in the hours but this art is amazing and I am so honored to be a part of your family and life together!
ps-promise to keep this updated when we add on!

FYI-this OUTSTANDING renovation of the most adorable 12th Avenue South bungalow is on the market...for all the deets contact:
Kelly Ramos with Keller Williams Realty Nashville

Much love to all!

to get lost...frannklin tn lifestyle photographer

this is a child, constantly lost in the dream world of my imagination reading for hours and hours and hours.

i read everything you could put in my hands, Shakespeare in the 4th grade! can you believe it? i asked my mom to buy it for me!

see this is why i truly love this blessing i strive to grow in everyday.  simple things can capture you and remind you, of the smells, the feelings, the true emotion you felt at the very moment. 

this image did it today for me.  the simple pleasure of being a child. carefree, life happens at your pace...

today is September 11. 11 years ago i stood in my senior year college apartment getting ready for my 2nd class of the day...(admittedly, i skipped my early am that day) however, i would not have experienced any of the history in the making.  i sat on my couch, legs crossed, breath stopped, a round brush still hot from the dryer in my lap, staring, waiting, only to see the 2nd plane smash into the 2nd tower on live TV.  our world changed in an instant.  the naivety of the simple life was smashed as deeply as the towers themselves.  WVU was a state of pandemonium unlike any other.  WVU is home to nearly 1/2 the schools population of NY, NJ and DC northern VA students.  PA makes up another significant portion.  i couldn't forget September 11 even if i wanted to...i pray for the families of the lost victims, hopefully we all do...

may we notice the little things we do ourselves each day.  they are the reminders to our loved ones and friends of who we are.  Of course, you may not remember until you see it yourself...

Snow White styled senior session...nashville, tn senior photographer

so the story goes...snow white ditched that witch took her "magic" apple and headed to houston. 

she grew up pretty & tall & is headed to college in the fall, with all the other modern day princesses!

roughly a week & a half ago, I was caught daydreaming with the one & only Shalonda Chaddock of Chubby Cheek Photography.  besides having the most amazing day talking "the biz," I was able to specifically choose a session I wanted to shoot while I was with her.  Of course, I put her expertise to the test and chose a conceptual, styled senior session...and of course she and the lovely Jessica Avery of The Cotton Exchange {Vintage Rentals} took my challenge in stride and showed me how 2 texan girls roll!  we had an amazing session, amazing day and thanks to Shalonda, lots of wonderful new going on here at Stephanie Marie Photographie!!!

Grab your Sunday morning java and enjoy Snow White!

Smith Preschool Vintage Days of Summer

Sooooo, recently I had the great pleasure of shooting my daughters beloved preschool' day camp! Smith Preschool just celebrated its 60th year and is looking forward to a bright future ahead! My Lil crazy man will be terrorizing the halls of Smith a year from now!
Anyway...we had so much fun with the "big" balloons, jumping, spinning, the "whoa, you are close!" close-ups, & of course, everybodys favorite, candy bucket! I'll admit, I'm not scared to bribe a child! All the parents received their proofs today, so now we can all watch and enjoy the morning I spent at Smith! Make sure your volume is up! A big thanks to everyone who helped pull this off, it went off without a hitch and I couldn't have done it without you!

because 1 day...londons birds nest

This post is very special to me!  My little artist found this sweet birds nest at our absolute favorite store in downtown Franklin, PD's.  If you haven't checked them out and you are local, do yourself a favor!  They have the most unique finds and the prices will literally make you gasp at the outstanding deals!!!
I soon as she picked this birds nest out, I said "what an awesome prop for Easter sessions!"  Immediately, she asked to do a photoshoot, which she set up ALL by herself! I was blown away by her creativity and my heart beat a tiny bit faster wondering if she would follow in my footsteps.  The lil pink bankie is her beloved Pickle blanket...we affectionately call it her lifeline! At home, she picked out all the edits herself and was so proud! Of course, I had to shoot a little of my love as well!

because 1 day...may she always find joy in the simple things...
