Back to Key West

I recently took a family cruise where we ported in Key West for one of the days. I had never been to the Florida Keys, and simply put — it was amazing. It was one of the most peaceful places I’ve been even though it is a big tourist attraction. It felt unique, bright and relaxing. Here are some of my favorite photos taken while on the little island and a short reflective poem.

A poem “Key West”

there’s a place called Key West. she welcomes me with beautiful rest, a haven by the shore.

Color Palettes ~ Planning Your Content

A message I like to share with clients at all of my photo sessions is the importance of color palettes. When you are trying to convey a certain message to your target audience and/or market through visuals, it’s vital that you have a consistency in color coordination or a clear direction of colors following a particular pattern.

I’m one for all the color ~ with that being said, I usually stick to darker neutral tones, charcoals, muted grays with just a few pops of dark blushes, soft greens, and hues of blue. These colors represent my brand, in my creative world and in my personal life.


When planning your session and your brand story, I’ll help you to decide on a specific color palette. This will help you to plan your posts, edit your site or launch new marketing materials that are all cohesive in style, color, and pattern.

I’ll also provide a document with your brand colors listed from our session. This will act as a reference point for planning your posts or deciding on graphics you’d like to add with your photos. It’s a great way to keep yourself organized with a color reference point.

I thought I would end this little message by including some of my favorite color palettes.

Pure Salon

I spent time (yet again of course) roaming around Gardens of Babylon, this time snapping photos of two organic salon owners, Jamie and Sarah from Pure Salon here in Nashville. 

They've recently been putting together marketing photos to promote all the wonderfulness that is their salon. I visit their salon frequently for facials and have had the best colorist cut and style my hair there as well. 

I definitely recommend checking them out over on Instagram @puresalon and on their site For now, here are some of my favorites from their recent session.
