It has been about a year since I had to opportunity to meet and work with the talented Cassandra Gresham and I couldn’t be happier with her addition to my team. We started working together just before Christmas in 2011…I was looking for some vintage looking burlap banners for my holiday sessions and because I waited to the last minute (I really do this many more times then I like to admit!) I could no longer order them online and receive them in time so I was in a pinch.  A friend of mine suggested that Cassandra could do it and just like that our connection and friendship was made. Not only did Cassandra make me the most adorable burlap banners for my holiday session but she also came to help me set up my holiday sessions! Since then she has continued to add touches here and there and really has brought a little something special to my shoots. I certainly am not a photographer that wants any of my shoots to appear overly staged or prop-filled which is why I think Cassandra is such a gem…she understands my look/style perfectly and has a wonderful ability to edit and simplify when needed.

Below I am going to highlight some of her work that she has done for me that I LOVE! Many of the pieces that Cassandra has made for me we have decided to sell on my shop page….please check it out and you could also elevate your images by adding some of her special touches. A few of my favorite pieces that she did for me was the “Merry Christmas” chalkboard sign, the vintage flapper style cloche hats, senior yarn sign and the burlap “JOY” pillows!!! If you have any questions about any of the pieces that you don’t see listed on my shop site please contact us directly.

Barrett is an amazing little one that I have had the pleasure on seeing grown into a very sweet little girl right before my eyes! Photographing children is always such a joy but it is especially fulfilling when I get the chance to capture all of these moments for my own family too! I had a chance to photograph my niece Barrett a few months back and really love the images that we got. This post is actually a little over due since just a couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of photographing Barrett with the newest addition to her family…her little brother! She is going to be such a wonderful big sister and I can’t wait to be there every step of the way to capture those moments too! The three images that I captured below are so sweet and sincere. We always do everything we can to get that great smiling image, but I know as well as anyone with my own little girl that sometimes that just isn’t happening. But, when you don’t get the big smile sometimes what you get is even better. These images have such a sweet sincerity to them!!!

Big congrats go out to Barrett and her family for their newest addition… I will be posting some amazing pics of Barrett and her little brother very soon!!!

I double dog dare you to look at these photos and not smile…you can’t do it can you? Don’t worry neither can I! We had soooo much fun with all of wonderful families this holiday season and especially had a great time finding a fantastic location and some super fun props to bring the whole look together. This year we knew we really wanted to have a vintage style couch that was large enough that we could position our families on but small enough not to swallow just a few…sounds easy enough but it was a tall order. After a lot of searching we came across this amazing vintage red couch that was perfect…the only bad thing was that it was SUPER heavy. My assistant and I put in a lot of effort to move this the big boy around and my back really wasn’t loving it, but the final product was worth it. In addition to the amazing couch we knew we wanted some other props to pull it all together and that is where I put my assistant to work…she designed reversible burlap pillow so that we could change up the look of the shot with a simple flip of a pillow. My absolute favorite was the cream pom pom pillows that spelled out JOY…when she originally told me her idea I wasn’t 100% sure I understood what she was talking about (I am very visual), but I have learned to just say okay because everything she does is amazing!

Honestly, we had such a great time with our Holiday sessions this year and I can’t wait to do something just as special next year! Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas surrounded by family and friends!

I have often thought for many years that we have lost the real meaning of Christmas.  Do not get me wrong when I say that I LOVE the Christmas season!  It is the most wonderful time of the year, however, my kids began to only focus on their gifts and what they wanted for Christmas.  I knew I had to come up with another plan to share with these sweet little ones the importance of giving at Christmas time, especially to those who are in need.  I want them to understand that not all others live the same way they do and they are very blessed to have all that they do.  That is when I saw my friend Jamie Schultz (owner of Jamie Schultz Photography) start a fabulous family tradition and I adapted that into our own “Twelve Days of Tessier Giving”

We start 12 days out from Christmas and each day the boys get to pick out the number to determine our task!  I had my fabulous assistant  Cassandra create these adorable muslin number tags and the “Tis Better to Give” muslin label for the jar (she sells these sets for only $25 and we use the same ones year after year).  Then we dressed it up with some yarn balls and were set to go!

I learned that I had to do my homework first to make sure things ran smoothly.  I  call ahead and get our visit arranged and then we head out as a family to shop for all the events including pet supplies, toys for the needy baking items etc.  Jamie had some great ideas as for places to donate or give including, bring cookies to a nursing home, donate to a pet shelter, write letters to a soldier, call your grandparents just to say hi etc!   We have truly enjoyed this experience of giving to others and have learned it is better than any gift they could receive!

Sweet Talley was such a fun shoot…her mom had some super amazing props for us to use that really brought everything together which was wonderful and no surprise, because she is a friend of two of my other clients that are super prepared and stylish momma’s as well. I absolutely love my business growing by referral and especially am so happy to meet new clients that are such a good fit with me style-wise. Talley was an absolute doll and her sweet blue eyes were amazing to photograph. It really is so fun to capture images of your children in their own surroundings to truly capture moments in their life because as everyone says (and it is true) it really does fly by. As I mentioned this shoot was truly brought together by Talley’s mom’s amazing props…I especially love the vintage sign that read “Talley’s Place”!!! This clearly was her place and she was a happy, sweet girl that is clearly adored by her family…just as she should be!!! I also loved that we kept Talley in the buff for her shoot….I love seeing them this way and just letting all their baby cuteness shine through.

I personally want to thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to photograph your sweet little angel! I hope you enjoy all the pictures that we captured as much as I did!!!
