Rachel in the Fall

October 30, 2014 — 1 Comment

With the leaves changing quite beautifully and the 80 degree temps we’ve had, I decided to take Rachel outside and do a quick little fall shoot before it rained and turned cold. These shots were all taken in Nic’s parents’ back yard and front yard. For any photographers reading this, these first several were shot with the 135L, and the last two were shot with the 35L to show off not only Rachel but the beautiful tree behind her, too! I love the leaves that got stuck in her feet :) aaaaand that I caught her picking her nose! ;)

I’m so excited to share this beautiful fall session with y’all! If there were ever a family session that really showcases my photography style, this would be it. I love everything about this… the neutral colors that allow the family’s faces to shine, the open field, the beautiful light, and of course the fun personalities. Hope you enjoy this one! It was a blast to photograph the Goggans family.

Adalee | 9 Month Baby Photos

October 14, 2014 — 1 Comment

I have always said that six months is one of my favorite ages, but as Rachel grows, I’m loving months 8, 9, 10, and 11. Each stage seems to get more and more fun! Adalee’s 9-month session was no different. She is adorable, and is always dressed in the sweetest outfits! You’ll see her Bama roots coming out in the precious hounds-tooth dress! Check out a few of my personal favorites from our photo session at Cannonsburgh Village in Murfreesboro.

October 2014 Goals

October 1, 2014 — Leave a comment

Wow! October… such a month of change and crazy. I’m excited about it! Speaking of crazy, things have been a bit crazy around the Teasley casa, or lack there of (wink!) these past few weeks. Keep up with our fun home-building adventures on Instagram! Sorry I missed September, but let’s just say I’m welcoming October like my friend Nancy Ray says ;) and ready for this new month. God is good and I’m so thankful to see His faithfulness all around me, especially in the craziness of life! I’m trying hard to make more time for things that matter most these days… As I do, I’m humbled daily, remembering my need for a Savior and the importance of stopping, resting, and being utterly dependent on Him!

And then there’s this little one pictured below. She will be one soon, and as hard as it is to believe, it’s amazing that God has brought us this far! Woohoo! 10 months is a fun stage of smiles, giggles, waving, pulling up, and exploring her world!

Rachel-0443

In between caring for her and enjoying family time, goals for October include the following:

  • Break ground on our new home
  • Shoot lots of amazing mini sessions, newborn, engagement, AND family sessions (Can we say, “Busiest month of the year!” ?!?!)
  • Visit Birmingham and Montgomery
  • Speak at a fun conference
  • Break in my brand new camera body
  • Experiment with more film
  • Catch up with Rachel’s pictures from her first year
  • Start to plan a fun and SIMPLE first birthday celebration for Rachel

What are your goals for the month? Would love to hear so share a link to them in the comments!

I’m excited to offer Fall Mini Sessions this year… four dates at four three different locations. Each date has limited availability so book your session now!

Fall Mini Sessions

UPDATE: OCTOBER 26 MINI SESSIONS ARE NOW IN THE NASHVILLE/BRENTWOOD AREA!

FAQs:

What is a mini session? A mini session is 15 to 20-minute session for you and your family at a beautiful time of year. This isn’t a full session, but we will work quickly to get family photos, group shots, individual shots of kids, and whatever else we can squeeze in! You’ll receive 5-10 edited images to download and use as you please. Mini sessions can also easily be gifted to a family member or friend!

How many people can be in my photos? The $95 fee covers up to five family members and/or pets. If you have additional family members, contact me for details before booking.

How do I know if a mini session is right for me? Mini sessions are perfect for those looking for a beautiful Christmas card photo or simply a couple of professional images to document your kids or family at this stage.

What if I don’t think 15 minutes will be enough time for my family? I have a limited number of family portrait sessions still available this fall. Feel free to contact me about scheduling one of these one-hour sessions if you don’t think a mini session is the right fit for your family. With a full session you’ll receive at least 30-40 edited digital images.

What do we do if it rains? Each Tennessee location (Leipers Fork and Nashville/Brentwood) has an alternate rain date. Birmingham sessions are refundable for inclimate weather.

Do I have to pay up front? Yes. You’ll reserve your spot by paying for the time slot you choose. When it’s time for your session, you just show up. No  ATM visits or check writing to remember!

How quickly will I receive my images? I work to deliver mini session images within two weeks of your session.

What should I wear? Jewel tones and earth tones tend to be the most flattering on people. I like to tell families I work with that it’s much better to coordinate than to match. Let’s not be cheesy and all wear the exact same color top and pants, but instead wear colors that compliment one another. Let your personality (and your kids’ personalities) shine. Wear something that’ll make you feel like a million bucks! You can always text me to get opinions on outfits as well. I’m here to help!

Can I bring a prop for my child or a favorite quilt/blanket? Absolutely! This is a quick session, so we may not be able to use all your props, but bring whatever you’d like.

I have more questions. No problem. Simply contact me with your questions!

UPDATE: October 18 and 19 are SOLD OUT, but we still have availability October 26 in NASHVILLE.

It’s almost time for Ally and Nathan to celebrate their one-year anniversary, so it’s high time I share their gorgeous wedding day with you.

Ally and Nathan have a beautiful love story! They met at the University of Alabama, and dated all through college. Getting married during football season in the state of Alabama is quite a feat, but these two were up for the task. They had a beautiful yellow and navy wedding in September at quite a picturesque venue- Rancho de Las Aguilas, just outside of Birmingham. With a combination of vintage inspiration and DIY details including flowers, table settings, and invitations, this turned out to be quite the Southern wedding! One of my favorite parts of the day was when the bride and her father surprised all the guests halfway through their father/daughter dance, as they pulled out their University of Alabama shakers and concluded with a choreographed dance to “Sweet Home Alabama.” Enjoy a few favorite images from their beautiful day!

I’m thrilled to share today’s session with you! Adrienne and Garrett are such a fun couple, and I couldn’t be more excited to be their wedding photographer in January! Adrienne lived with us for semester while working at LifeWay, and we loved sharing our home with her. Adrienne and Garrett met working camp together several summers ago. (Side note – I just realized I interviewed both of them for the job, and God had something so much bigger in store!)

This summer they were in Nashville along with Adrienne’s camp team, and we decided to do a sunrise engagement session! I wanted to scream when they told me they were up for the challenge… I was so pumped. Camp is hard work with very little sleep, so I had a hard time believing they would voluntarily get up that early to hang out with me and have some pictures taken. Needless to say (as you can tell from the photo below) it was the right decision and the light was absolutely gorgeous. Adrienne and Garrett, Nic and I can’t wait for your Virginia wedding!

Welcome to busy season at Teasley Photography! Fall photo shoots are really gearing up, and in between all those sessions, I’m excited to continuing sharing some of the images I captured over the summer. Lincoln turned two in June, and his family had a little surprise to share right around his birthday. Check out some of my favorite images from this session, including his super cute “Big Brother” shirt and their beautiful new home.

Sharing a beautiful family and a sweet little girl today! I’m honored to capture photographs of Gabby Jo all throughout her first year. These images are part of her 3-month session at her family’s home in Brentwood. Be sure to scroll to the end to see her super cute expressions!

Fall is approaching, and I’m excited to think about planning Nashville Fall Mini Sessions and to showcase some of the beautiful people I’ve had the honor of photographing this summer. Get ready, because the blog is back in action with lots of sweet families, gorgeous couples, and oh-so-cute kiddos! I’d love to introduce you to my friend, Kristen and her family. Kristen won a free session here on the blog over a year ago, and after several hilarious failed attempts we finally were able to schedule a session, just before they moved across the pond for six months. Now they are in Cambridge, enjoying city life and the longest winter ever. What a dream it would be to venture over and capture just a simple day in the life of this sweet family… bicycling around town, studying at the library, exploring parks, and enjoying English culture! While I dream, enjoy these summer photos… here are a few favorites from our time together in Birmingham (Alabama, not England! :))

August 2014 Goals

August 1, 2014 — Leave a comment

Happy July, I mean August! I usually work hard to post my goals around the first of the month… but I missed a whole month. July was a whirlwind. Why, you ask? Because this happened…

2014-07-07 14.42.40-2

And getting our home ready to sell involved involved lots and lots of cleaning, de-cluttering (check that off my list for the past few months and months!), painting, cleaning, scrubbing, buying, returning, painting, cleaning, and well, you get the drift! And then our house sold within just a few short days! {Insert plug for our amazing realtor, Alex, of Helton Real Estate Group.}

Meanwhile, we took some engagement photos of a beautiful couple, had some fun summer family photos taken of our little family, went to Mississippi for the family reunion, and so much more. This weekend we are off to visit family and celebrate milestone birthdays, as well as introduce Rachel to a host of extended family and friends. If you think of it, would you pray for me today? I have a bit of anxiety about traveling with an 8-month-old!

So, where does that leave us for August? Here are a few of my goals for the month:

  • Take a trip to California.
  • Pack up our house.
  • Move into the basement.
  • Close on our land and finalize plans for our new home.
  • Take a fun little weekend beach trip with friends! :-D
  • Establish a little bit of a routine in our in-between home.

And I’ll leave you with a few sweet images from our family reunion in Mississippi!

Lauren and Codie are such an incredibly fun couple! I love watching them interact with one another and have fun together. I first met them at Erin & Bryan’s wedding last summer, where Lauren was a bridesmaid and Codie caught the garter! They will tie the knot this December, and Nic & I are so excited to document their Christmas wedding. For their engagement shoot, we went to downtown Murfreesboro and a park nearby. The weather turned out perfect. Codie was a collegiate golfer so you’ll see a couple of hints of his love for golf in this shoot. :) Lauren & Codie, can’t wait for your wedding!

Excited to share these one-year-old photos with you today! Between a beautiful family and some gorgeous light, I can’t ask for a much better opportunity to document this fun milestone. It feels like just yesterday I was photographing Noah’s sweet newborn session.

I love shooting newborn sessions at home. I love capturing a few moments of life with a brand new little one. The family may not be frolicking in a field of wild flowers, but I love to capture how siblings interact, how parents love on their little ones, and the sweet details of new babies. Baby June, or “Baby Dune” as big sister calls her, is a sweet little one, just born a few weeks ago. (You may remember Harper’s 2-year photos from a couple of weeks ago.) Check out a few, or maybe a lot, of my favorites from their in-home newborn session with baby June.

June 2014 Goals

June 3, 2014 — Leave a comment

Happy June! Let’s be honest, I’m a little bummed that May is over… it’s my birthday month, it was my first Mother’s Day, and a busy but fun month for us in the Teasley home. Last month I completed a mini contentment challenge with Victoria. I learned quite a bit about myself. I learned that I don’t really shop much at all since having Rachel. However, I do often buy things without thinking hard about their purpose and if the purchase is really necessary. I also learned that I turn to food, namely sugar and carbs, when I’m stressed or bored. So, in the middle of this contentment challenge, I decided to do start a Whole 30 challenge. What is the Whole 30? It’s basically eating nothing but whole foods for 30 days — mostly veggies and meats with some fruits and nuts. No sugar, no dairy, no grains, no potatoes, soy, corn, additives, etc. I’m on Day 15 and it’s actually been fun. It hasn’t been easy, and I’ve spend a LOT more time in the kitchen preparing food. However, I’ve learned about so many more fun foods to cook, and I’ve enjoyed the yummy tastes of things I didn’t notice before because I was drowning in all those carbs. This isn’t a whole 30 post, so I’ll stop there, but I would love to chat about it more if you’re interested! May was a month of discovery and introspection, and I’m feeling excited about carrying some of that over to June. Nic took me on a little golf outing for my birthday, and had someone clean our home while we were out! YAY!!! My parents came to visit a couple of times, baby Rachel was dedicated at church (which deserves a post of its own), we picked strawberries with friends, and I photographed a fun radio event at the Johnny Cash Museum in downtown Nashville! Needless to say, we were busy. Oh, and Rachel cut TWO teeth this month, and is now a much happier camper! :)

TeasleyPhotography-2016-2

I want to be more present in June, so my goals are a bit more centered around family and friends than photography and work.

JUNE GOALS:

I have the cutest little girl to introduce to you today! Oh how excited I am to share this sweet session. Harper turned two a couple months back, and I was honored to have the chance to capture some images of this sweet stage. She is such a fun and silly girl with a big heart. She loves to smile and play. Harper also just met her baby sister only a couple weeks after this shoot, so chances are you’ll get to meet baby June here on the blog very soon!

I’m excited to start a new and probably sporadic, series on the blog! It’s called “Meet My Friend…” and will showcase some of the amazing people the Lord has placed in my life! I seriously have some incredibly talented friends who are doing amazing things. A few of them even trust me enough to hire me, which is such a blessing! Chandra is a friend I met through Making Things Happen last Spring. I’m so blessed to know her, and am amazed at her talent. I’ll let her share a little about what she does, and I’ll share some images I took of her and her work!

TeasleyPhotography-CJayneTeach-7343

Meredith: Tell everyone a little about yourself… you family, background, what fires you up!

Chandra: I’m originally a Midwest gal being born and raised in small town Ohio.  I met my now husband Eric at Miami University (we’re “Miami Mergers”) and we headed south to Nashville so I could attend graduate school at Vanderbilt.  We’ve lived here 7 years now and have a sweet (almost) 2 year old southern gentleman named Lincoln.  My family definitely lights my heart on fire.  But second to that is my passion for education, encouraging other teachers in the profession and a really good food truck (hello to the Grilled Cheeserie!)

TeasleyPhotography-CJayneTeach-7403
M: What is C Jayne Teach?

Chandra: C. Jayne Teach is a blog and a shop intended to give a fresh perspective to our seasoned profession by encouraging all teachers to work hard, organize their plans and processes and focus on making the most out of their time in the classroom.   I want to inspire teachers to concentrate on the passion that called them to teach in the first place and use that fuel to inspire their students and the future young minds of the world. C. Jayne Teach is there to offer simple classroom solutions so teachers can focus more on what matters most to them and always make each day count.

TeasleyPhotography-CJayneTeach-7325

Meredith: What made you decide to start an online shop for teachers?

Chandra: I used to spend every evening and every weekend in my classroom.  Honestly it burnt me out and made me not want to teach anymore (and I’ve wanted to be a teacher since I was 8).  So I started to create products and classroom solutions for myself to use in order to organize and focus my time in the classroom.  That way I could go home and spend time with my family and feel refreshed when I’d head back in the morning.  After Lincoln was born I wanted to offer these solutions to teachers everywhere, so I created my shop and blog!

Meredith: Where do you get your inspiration for new designs and products?

Chandra: Most of it was created when I was in the classroom as a first grade teacher.  But new things are always being created because I now teach at the collegiate level and I see the need products that will serve new teachers entering into the profession.  There is a need now more than ever for teachers to stay focused because things are constantly changing and the level of accountability gets higher and higher each year.

TeasleyPhotography-CJayneTeach-7522

 

Meredith: What sets your products apart? What makes them unique?

Chandra: All of my products are created by a teacher for teachers.  I constantly receive positive feedback from teachers that use these products in their classroom and say that “finally someone gets it”.  Because I’ve been there.  I’ve felt the pressure of the profession and figured out how to be good and your job and still fill your heart up with your family and friends in your free time.  And now I’m sharing it with others. For example, I created the Teacher Anchor™.  It’s a planning system for teachers that allows them to streamline their processes and procedures, plan for all their students and monitor each student as an individual at the same time.  There’s nothing like that on the market like that.  Sure, there are hundreds of lesson planners, but none that are a “system” focused on the sole purpose of being intentional with your time. And that’s invaluable. Teachers see that and the Anchors flew off the shelf last year. They sold out in just under six weeks and I expect that time period to be even faster this year (pre-orders are open right now!)

TeasleyPhotography-CJayneTeach-7481

Meredith: What are some of your favorite things to do with your family?

Chandra: I love to soak up time exploring Nashville.  This is such a wonderful city and I know we won’t be here forever (Ohio calls our name louder and louder each year).  But for now I love to visit the zoo and the botanical gardens and watch Lincoln explore and learn new things.  And when we can sneak out for a date night, Eric and I love to visit new restaurants or see a concert at the Ryman.  There is just so much to do here and I love exploring it all.

Meredith: What one piece of advice would you offer to new moms?
Chandra: You are doing a great job. And not every day will be perfect. That’s okay. I’m sure you’ve heard that “the days are long but the years are short” and it couldn’t be more true. There are joys and challenges with every season but you’ve got this.
TeasleyPhotography-CJayneTeach-7563 TeasleyPhotography-CJayneTeach-7657
Meredith: What advice would you give to new business owners or people who want to start their own business?

Chandra:  “Do what you can with what you have, where you are.”  So often we see fancy websites and expensive collateral but try not to get caught up in that.  Figure out where you want to invest your money and your time and go from there.  You can’t do it all at once, but as your business grows, you’ll be able to add products or services or even those pretty letterpress business cards you want.  But for now just start and don’t compare your beginning to someone else’s middle. Also, seek out and learn from as many entrepreneurs as you can.  Take a webinar, visit a workshop, but learn from others (and pay them to share their knowledge – seriously, no one wants to give away their intellectual property for free! :))  I’ve learned the most about my business from people who have walked this path before me.  And it’s been so beneficial.

TeasleyPhotography-CJayneTeach-7632

And aren’t her resources for teachers just incredible and beautiful? I’ll never forget Chandra coming to visit me at my house just a couple of weeks after giving birth to Rachel. She shared those words, “You’re doing a great job,” and that simple phrase meant the world to me as a brand new mom! I’m so thankful for her wisdom as a mom herself and fellow business owner. She is working hard to make life happen and focus on what matters most. So excited about what my friends like Chandra are making happen! Now, go check out her work!

For Mother’s Day this year, my sister-in-law and I collaborated on a secret project for my mom! She’s always wanted pictures of her two granddaughters together, and every time we’ve gotten them together, I’ve been wrangling a newborn or feeding her or something other than grabbing my camera and taking pictures of cute kids. So, we decided to pick a time to do just that! We knew mom loved the rustic look of old cabins and sweet little bare feet with beautiful dresses. It was so much fun to do this shoot and took everything I had not to spill the beans! We spilled them a little bit, but she was so excited to get her gorgeous prints in the mail – both an album and some professional prints to frame for her house. I’m so thankful for my mom and all that she means to us, and blessed to be able to give her a gift that reminds her of the joys of being a Nana! We love you so much, mom! Enjoy your pictures!

May 2014 Goals

May 7, 2014 — Leave a comment

Happy May! I love May and couldn’t imaging not blogging my May goals. It’s been a challenge, though, because so far May is winning and I am not. Life has been crazy busy! However, I firmly believe that God works in all things! Today (HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MOM!) I am very thankful for the way He orchestrated my day, allowing circumstances to change and a few extra minutes for me to post here.

TeasleyPhotography_May Goals-9281

This month will continue to be crazy with weddings, engagement sessions, and “watch me grow” sessions to shoot, in addition to editing some already-completed sessions, and wearing other hats like being a writer for some fun kids curriculum for LifeWay! So, I don’t have many goals for the month other than surviving and introducing baby Rachel to some new foods. :)

MAY GOALS:

  • Enjoy my first Mother’s Day as a mom
  • Dedicate Rachel (and ourselves as parents) to the Lord with our church family
  • Shoot lots of sessions (Yay for weddings and engagements happening!)
  • Keep up with editing those sessions
  • Shoot Rachel’s 6-month photos
  • Edit and PRINT Rachel’s photos from the first 6 months
  • Walk or workout 3x each week
  • Make some yummy baby food when my mom comes to visit
  • Complete a contentment challenge with Victoria
  • Celebrate my BIRTHDAY!
