Jenny, Jim & Jack

20 11 2007


We have had the opportunity to meet some great new clients.  I met Jenny this summer after a fortuitous Craigslist transaction in which the subject of photography came up.  I explained we were in the process of starting up our business and she was willing to entrust her family portraits to us.  After some scheduling challenges we managed to get together a few weeks ago at my new favorite spot for photography, Cannonsburg in Murfreesboro.  Jenny’s family was originally from the Cannonsburg area and wanted Jack’s 2nd year documented where his ancestor’s originated.   This little community was famously known for the world’s largest Cedar bucket.  It is a beautiful reproduction of a pioneer village complete with church, cabins, grist mill and antique tractor collection.  The bucket is no longer there due to some pesky vandals who burned it a few years back, but the village is certainly worth a stroll if you are in the area.  It is located just off Broad Street behind the Shoney’s.  It is right downtown, but cleverly hidden.

Jim, Jenny and Jack were great subjects and we had a  really great time shooting their portraits.  Jack is only 2 1/2 but he was very cooperative and not to mention adorable. 

Jim is a muscian and wanted a humerous picture dipicting his none-musical family members in an American Gothic type pose. 



Portrait Season

20 11 2007

It has been such a busy month since we returned from Minnesota and it seems we are deep in the throws of portrait season.  We have been asked to take so many portraits as we approach the holiday season it seems all of our nights and weekends have been taken with our new venture.  It’s a good problem to have but can be frustrating because we want to find time for everyone. 

We have been able to fit everyone in and only had to reschedule one session due to a nasty case of the stomach flu.  We are grateful to all of our friends and new clients that have entrusted us with their family portraits.  We hope you return many times over.
