Humphrey’s Street Coffee in Nashville, TN
In another attempt to make Instagram friends, I reached out to Stephanie at The Wandering Fleur and we hung out at one of the cutest coffeeshops in Nashville! Stephanie is has the aesthetic I wish I could attain — gorgeous tattoos, platinum blonde locks, and a fearless fashion sense. It was strange getting to know each other because she’s actually my roommate’s boss! I loved getting to capture her beauty, even with the overcast skies.

So believe it or not, these photos were taken in an empty little field between a Starbucks and a Comfort Inn in Cookeville, TN. And Jay & I are still just OBSESSED with the red dirt in the background. Jay’s one of my favorite people because she’s not only incredibly kind and thoughtful, but she’s so hilarious & she has such a zest for life. Plus, she takes beautiful photos and she’s a huge inspiration for me!
Follow her @jaydaiye and book her if you need portraits!

Recently I’ve been trying to reach out more on Instagram, to make new friends & use my camera to highlight more Instagrammers and bloggers when I can. I’ve known Laura for a little while now (honestly I can’t even tell you how we got to know each other lol) but I finally got to take some photos of her the other day. In 20º weather at like 8am. It was such a chill photoshoot (get it) but I loved getting to practice my portraiture a little bit! It’s been so long since I just did fun photoshoots without feeling like I have to deliver to a client, and I think the freedom of photographing a friend made my heart happy. Of course, I do have like four other shoots to edit, but hey, at least I’m out here having fun!
Go follow Laura (@lauraweldy) on Instagram for her coaching tips - you can also hire her to help you get your life in order, and I’ve only heard great things about her mentorships!
When there is a white room available to you, you are absolutely required to take photographs in it.
