February 22, 2013 A Walk Down Memory Lane
March 20, 2012 St. Patty’s Day done right.
Just a warning, this post contains high levels of awesomeness.
Hey, Dani here. We simply cannot wait to share these photos with you. If you don’t already know, Chattanooga is sort of a mecca of extremely talented local musicians. On any given night, it seems, you can go listen to some amazing music. We are some lucky little duckies down in the valley.
Ryli first mentioned for us to head down to Rhythm and Brews to see our friends Strung Like a Horse and Glowing Bordis play….on St. Patty’s Day. Our answer was an overwhelming YES.
BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE….
Not only would the bands play their original sets, but Strung Like a Horse covered a whole set of Violent Femmes, and Glowing Bordis wrapped up the night with a set of Rage Against the Machine. Yeah, that sounds awesome right? Right.
We all decided that we should all go out and take some photos of the glimmering green shenanigans. So Ryli, Skye, friends, and I met up at the Boathouse for some pre-game dinner and drinks (sorry no photos of that). After we fed our bellies we headed on down to Rhythm and Brews.
AND WE WERE BLOWN AWAY. I mean, holy macaroni…
In case you were wondering the answer is YES. Heads banged, faces melted, everyone danced, the crown sang along, and we all partied the night away. These bands are incredible talents and we feel downright giddy about the images we captured of said talent. If you ever have a chance to catch either band (or if you are super lucky, you can see both of them in the same night!) we wholly recommend you go. They will not disappoint.
March 20, 2012 Baby Heath has arrived!
Meet baby Heath. He’s such a pretty baby! So flawless, So soft. Now we know where the expression “Soft as a baby’s bottom” comes from. Baby’s like Heath! We showed up at their house on a Friday morning for Heaths session and boy was he content being at home. He didn’t make a peep, Just let us turn him and pose him at whatever way we needed.
Then he got a little hungry so we decided to take a small break before doing his photos with mom and dad. We took some of his room. It was so peaceful in there. Just like a baby’s room should be! We also let Brooke and Richard, Heaths momma and daddy lay and roll around on the bed with him for some cute family shots. We are so happy for the Henderson family and their newest member of the family. Congradulations Brooke and Richard!
March 20, 2012 Hello World, meet baby Cooper.
Is he seriously not the most adorable baby you’ve seen!?
Yeah, We thought so too! From his head FULL of hair to his little itty bitty toes! When looking in the dictionary at the word perfection baby Coopers photo would be beside it staring at back you.
Cooper was actually about 3 weeks old when these photos were taken. Why you may ask? Well you see, The Dr’s thought Cooper had twisted intestines so he had to go stay in the NICU for about a week. But he showed everyone what he was made of and come to find out everything was going to be ok! Kate & Johnny, Coopers momma and daddy needed a week to clam down and take it all in at home with him and just have Cooper all to themselves before getting back in the swing of things. Which do you blame them? We would have stayed at home for weeks with baby Cooper if he was ours! But then again he is too cute to keep at home so showing him off and getting newborn photos was a must!
March 14, 2012 Waiting for baby Asher.
Hey, it’s Dani here. I am so excited to show you a preview of my friend Melissa’s maternity session. Melissa and I have been friends a long time, we met when we were both in school and working at Macaroni Grill serving tables. It was like 10 years ago (we are getting old!). Since then lots of things have happened. We both got through school, quit serving tables, went through break ups together, new boyfriends, new jobs, had more than a few girls night/wine nights over the years. Melissa met Joe (who I approved of totally!) and got hitched, moved away to Atlanta, got 2 precious dogs, and now they are expecting their first baby. When she said she wanted me to do some maternity photos, I was thrilled. Then she said she was bringing her fur babies Blaze and Roscoe, who I had never met, I was super excited! Those two pups are going to be great big brothers!
Here is a little sneak peek of what we captured of this lovely little family. Congratulations guys, you all are going to be phenomenal parents…and I can’t wait to meet baby Asher!
March 13, 2012 Welcome to the world sweet little Avarie.
We know this sweet family through Dani’s Mom, and we are so thankful we got to document this moment in their lives. Kari and Mika are the most genuine couple and they are very deserving of their beautiful little girl.
Kari had us over to her adorable house for some one on one time with little Avarie. She is such an alert little girl, she was awake for the whole session! Mika works as a fireman for Bradley County and was working that day so we headed on down to the station to snap a few of the family together and of sweet little Avarie with her Daddy.
March 13, 2012 2012 Spring Mini Session Information!
It’s that time of year again, folks! The weather is warming up, the birds are chirping, and the sun is staying out later…it’s spring time! So, it’s time for us to be doing some spring mini sessions!
Fortunately, we had a tremendous turnout for our pre-sale (which was offered to our previous mini session clients first) so we had to open up another weekend!
We are now taking booking requests for March 31st and April 1st. These sessions go super fast, so if you are interested in booking, please email us at:
Please give us your preferred date and time of day.
As with all our mini sessions, this one will be styled as well! We plan on having baby ducks and a few little areas that we will stage in some super cute spring decor. We are thinking an old red wagon, a cool vintage chair, a picnic area, and wildflowers.
Our spring mini’s will be held at the Enterprise South Nature Park. We are planning to have everything setup at picnic area 3. There is a little bridge there and lots of lovely trees.
We are so excited about this years spring sessions!
We hope to see you all there!

February 28, 2012 Bombshell Session: Miss A
Ok, now…we know in the past we have said that we won’t publish bombshell sessions…but…we just couldn’t help it with these! (of course we have the clients permission!)
Luckily this beautiful lady found us on facebook and booked her bombshell session for her husbands Valentines gift this year. When she got to the studio, she seemed quiet and reserved (especially since we had never officially met her). But once we got her in some hair and makeup, cranked up the tunes, and started posing her…she was a NATURAL! We even asked her several times “Now, are you SURE you haven’t done this before…like for a living??” Needless to say, we have heard from her that her husband was FLOORED by her album and she was so happy with her experience that she has already told us she wants to do it again! We say, bring it on Miss A! You are STUNNING!
See what we mean??
January 24, 2012 Bloom at the Chattanooga Pink Bridal Show!
The Bloom girls were so excited about our booth this year at the Chattanooga Pink Bridal show! We made sure to take a few shots of our booth being set up (which went so smoothly thanks to Momma Lyndi Blair). And thanks to Skye’s crafty boyfriend Kevin we had walls made, which was something we were wanting so badly for this year. Here is the journey it took to set everything up:
This is what it looked like when we arrived, then after the wall had been set up.
Miss Lyndi and Ryli hard at work!
the finished product (almost!)
Our handouts and our buttons that we gave out to brides. They were really a hit! Our flowers provided by Veo Weddings and Events (more about them later!)
the Bloom Gals are ready to meet some brides!!
Our neighboring booth B Sweet Cake Boutique offered up some super stylish cakes…we love those chairs too!
Our friends from Sunrise Farms had a BEAUTIFUL booth! We are so lucky to be able to work with such great people.
And last but not least, the fabulous Veo Wedding and Event Planning. Veronica graciously provided to flowers for our booth (which EVERYONE commented on!). Thank you for helping us with our booth design and flowers! We love you guys!
That about wraps up our coverage of the Chattanooga Pink Bridal show! Thank you to all the brides that we got to meet! We are really super pumped about this upcoming wedding season. :)
October 27, 2011 Mr. & Mrs. Read. Bailey and Traverse tied the knot!
Our bags were packed, and we were ready to go! We have been so excited about the wedding of Bailey and Traverse, it was hard to believe the time had come. These two are some of the sweetest people on earth and we are so happy that they found each other. We are also beyond thrilled that they chose us to document their most special day.
We came to Brentwood Tennessee a day early to scope out the venue and get a feel for the wedding day. When we pulled up to the gated entrance our jaws dropped. The Governors Club is beyond pristine and immaculate, and the homes on the property were so big, we were convinced we would see Puff Daddy driving his golf cart around. The grounds of the Pleasant Hill Manor only made us more excited. We looked at each other and said, ‘This is perfect.’ The rehearsal went off without a hitch and everything seemed calm. After some yummy italian food (Amerigo’s is a must eat when in Nashville/Brentwood) we headed to the hotel to rest up for the big day.
Early the next day we went to meet Bailey at the hotel where she was getting all ‘brided’ up. All the bridesmaids were getting ready in one suite and Bailey was in another suite all to herself. She said she just wants to be as calm as possible, which proves she is a smart girl…she knew the rest of the day would be crazy.
Once she got all done up she met us at Pleasant Hill and it was time to get in her dress and to see her soon to be husband for their first look. Traverse was so cute and acted a little nervous, somewhat fidgety when she was walking up behind him. Once they saw each other it’s almost like he was speechless, frozen in his tracks, and utterly amazed by how beautiful she looked. It was truly adorable.
Every wedding is different, but all in all this was the most calm and organized wedding we had ever been a part of. The weather that day was amazing, they couldn’t have asked for anything better. The ceremony was so sweet and the reception was a full on party.
Congratulations Mr. & Mrs Read and thank you again for having us share in your special day.
