Can I just start this post off with the statement that I have some ridiculously talented (and amazing all-around) friends? From photographers to musicians to yoga instructors, each one is pursuing passion and creativity to it’s fullest.

One of my favorite people to showcase here in this blog is my good friend, Jess Gann, of Blue Vinyl Photography. I call her for anything and everything, and I recommend her to pretty much everyone I meet.

Now, this is not just one of those “just because she’s your friend” deals.

No, no no. 

Jess is wildly talented with both visualization and aesthetic. She and I are kindred spirits and totally get each others’ vibe and vision. She is legit y’all.

That being said, as we roll into Everly turning one on the 28th of this month (I will cry in another post about that), I called Jess and told her what I wanted and needed by way of photos, and she and I developed a plan. My little family trekked 54 miles from our house in Nashville, TN, to their farm in Columbia, TN, and the results are sheer perfection.

I teared up when I saw them…they were that good. Now I’ll just stop writing and let her work speak for itself. (To see the photos on a larger scale, just click on them.)

And we can’t get enough of her either.

Even Jude loves his little sister…in the way only a toddler brother can.

There were seriously so many amazing photos, I’m actually going to wait and do a separate post for Everly’s birthday, so be on the lookout for that post next week! But I will leave you with these last 3 photos I just can’t not show you. 🙂


{{For those of you wondering, in the first look, her tee is Little Rascals Shop, her headband is Billy Bibs, Zara for those shorts, and Gap for the fur vest and moccasins. The other look is checkered dress by Zara, felt flower crown by Flora And Peg. }}
