Newborn Photo Session Ann and Zach are on the same trajectory as Dustin and me in regards to children. Grayson and Pryor are in the same class at Fountain City United Methodist, and Hazel and Mabry are just 8 months apart. We both had boys first and girls second. She lives in Halls, and we […]

K-Brew Engagement Session I’m not gonna lie I’m a sucker for a good local coffee shop as much as your hipster neighbor. K-Brew is one of the bigger ones close to my house, and it is my preferred choice when I have time to sit at a coffee shop to work. When Laura Beth and […]

The Grand Finale I’m not quite sure how I want to end my 7 day COVID-19 series with you. Obviously, we are still on lockdown. As much as we wish it was over in just 7 days, it’s gotten worse and worse. I know there will be a point where it turns and starts to […]

COVID-19: The Finale


Downtown Nashville & Love Circle Engagement I am SO glad that we did this downtown Nashville and Love Circle engagement photos before it got too crazy with Coronavirus everywhere. When I arrived in Nashville, it wasn’t to the point of not wanting to pass by someone on the street without crossing the road, and I’m […]

Where is the positive in this craziness?? Last night, I got a text from one of my sweet videographer friends thanking me for these COVID-19 posts to give her something to look forward to reading online at the end of the day. I was so humbly thankful that she said this to me because sometimes, […]


COVID-19: Finding the Positive


Roles are going to change… are you ready? I’m sitting at my computer at 9:53pm writing this to you. I promised a 7 day COVID-19 series, but I never said it would be 7 days in a row 😬One of my goals this year is to slow down. You heard me talk about this resolution/prayer […]


COVID-19: The Reset


How do you keep planning your wedding during COVID-19 I wanted to write this blog post to reassure all the brides out there who are having to adjust their wedding because of COVID-19. I read an article last night of commonly asked questions from brides during this crazy season. If you want to read it, […]


COVID-19: Wedding Planning


You know one thing that is so great about this quarantine? The fact that you have an excuse now to stay home and cuddle your babies. I know Morgan and Topher are really feeling that right now because they just welcomed their fourth baby and only boy into the family! You saw him last week […]

The Fothergill family is not one I’d consider being homebodies. We thoroughly enjoy getting out and about, and when we are inside too long we go stir crazy. Believe me, I know you’ve gotten a ton of these emails, but maybe, possibly, I might offer one tidbit of an idea that might be a little […]


COVID-19 Series: Prevent Cabin Fever


COVID-19 Recipes while you’re stuck at home I am so not a cook. I have never claimed to be and quite frankly I don’t enjoy it very much. Couple that feeling with not having a 100% functioning kitchen since we moved in in early February and we were eating out a lot. I don’t particularly […]

Ramble Creek Vineyard I have to share with you guys this really cool thing that God is doing in Amanda May Photos. In the past when I have needed my schedule to be clear for something enormous that I wouldn’t have exact control over when it would happen… a.k.a. having my babies… He has cleared […]

The Never Again 50% Off PRINT SALE As I typed out this header, I almost said “The Annual Print Sale” or the “Semi-Annual Print Sale.” Neither of those are true though because the ONLY time I give a sale on prints is if you book a preview party with me. Meaning if you hire me […]

Another reason why we love Shoreline. This is the Hayes family. We met at Concord Park to take some family photos before the boys had baseball games one evening. Jason is the head pastor at the church Dustin and I attend (Shoreline Church), and we adore this family so much. You’ve seen them before on […]

Relix Variety Theatre Wedding Alright, it’s hard not to address the elephant in the room. COVID-19. So, let’s just get that out of our system real fast. Please, wash your hands, stay home if you’re sick, cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze, and get tested if you need to get tested. I’m not […]

Island Home Airport Engagement Session I love airplanes, I love traveling, and I think I was MEANT to photograph this couple for so many reasons. 1) Their names are Devin and Delaney. I have two sisters-in-law named Devin and Dylana (pronounced the same except “uh” at the end instead of “ee”). 2) I am JUST […]
