So one day we invited over this family to dinner. They thought we needed to talk to them about something. Like they thought we had ulterior motives. We were like no way, just wanna be your friends!! Lol!!
I am so glad we stepped out of our comfort zone and invited them because they have such a huge place in my heart. Keyana is the best, sweetest friend that is the most like me. She always gets me.
They are always so kind, funny, and encouraging. The kids are the sweetest too! ❤ Plus she makes great shirts!
I have always had a love for Elvis. He was handsome and sang like a dream! I started loving him over the song “Teddy Bear” and then we learned about him in school and it grew from there! This road trip was a bucket list fulfiller!
So the Country Music Hall of Fame was great! I wish I had went without kids though so that I could read and learn more. lol. Museums are wasted with kids. But it was really cool and I took a lot of pictures of what i wanted to read so that I can read it all now.
We also got to go to the Grand Ole Opry. I have wanted to go since i was a kid. Like forever. I was in AWE!!!! It was late and I was tired but it blew my mind!! We went to a hymn sing and it was part of a music conference. The audience all knew their parts to all of the hymns and that room sounded like Heaven, it was glorious!!
Mayberry ❤ Be still my heart ❤
Mt. Airy is like a step back in time.
It is said that Mt. Airy is the inspiration for the setting of the Andy Griffith show.
We truly had a highlight that was huge!
We got to meet Betty Lynn aka Thelma Lou on the show. Thelma Lou played Barneys girl on the show and she was amazing! Gorgeous and sweet!
She signed Matthews picture “To The Piano Man” and then they got to talking about her mommas piano and how they couldn’t find a tuner back then and sure could have used him. Then he called me out and told on me. Told her that I never watched the show until I met him. So I said I have been watching for 16 years now and I love it!
She looked at Hannah when she went to sign her picture and looked up at her and said “You have such beautiful eyes, you are a beautiful girl!” It melted Hannah’
s heart and made her smile!
We always stay at Embassy Suites and managed to the whole road trip. I highly recommend them! Always clean! They have free snacks and drinks 5-7 every evening and a gorgeous free breakfast every morning. It is well worth it. It makes travel super easy!
This little gem of a kid is my fav! She just is so cute, and she is so sweet! I can not wait to see her sweet little personality develop and grow!
I love photographing babies ❤ Especially smiling ones with a sweet disposition!
She wanted color and suggested this wall and it was perfection!!
I loved getting to photograph this family! They were so sweet! Mom, dad, and FIVE sisters!! Plus husbands and all the kiddos! Family is so important to me, I think that I why I love to photograph families so much.
I have done this sweet kiddos pictures every year! I love seeing her grow up and seeing her cool personality emerge! I love that she loves princess stuff AND running around playing ball. You CAN do both ladies!!
