Best Friend Senior Portrait Session by Nashville Emily Anne Photography

These girls were the absolute sweetest! Best friend sessions are honestly some my absolute favorites too! :) 

These three girls grew up together, and even though they went to separate high schools Christ Presbyterian Academy, Independence High School, and Battle Ground Academy, they decided they wanted to celebrate their last year together with a joint portrait session! 

Needless to say, they were so much fun. :)

Isn't this beautiful couple absolutely adorable!? We were so delighted to service both as the photographer and videographer team of this rustic wedding. I LOVE capturing love. <3 I once heard a quote, "the greatest gift in life is to love and be loved in return." 

Alan Anders brilliantly stated, "love is friendship that has caught fire. It is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses."

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson professional wrestler and actor, couldn't have said it better himself, "If something stand between you and your success, move it. Never be denied." That's precisely what Misty did. I am privileged to capture Misty in this beautiful way, with sunshine, ethereal dresses, and with bohemian floral headbands.

My Personal Mountain: A Glimpse into my Career as a Photographer - Shot in Appenzell Switzerland

One look at those mountains and I knew I was destined to reach the peaks. Not just literally, although I do hope to one day climb a mountain, but figuratively. 5 years ago today, I embarked on one of the most exciting yet daunting adventures: becoming a business woman and photographer. 

best photos of the swiss alps, shot in appenzell switzerland

Capturing the beauty in others behind the lens, has always been one of those things that makes my heart flutter. As my clients know, I get just as excited if not even more thrilled about creating their dream images. Having the privilege of creating art, showing clients what I see behind the camera and watching their reactions are a few of the things that make my job absolutely priceless. 

However, the business and career of photography has not always been glamorous. To give you a glimpse, there are days I have come home crying about not being able to please everyone or have become way too stressed out comparing myself to other more "successful" business people in this field of expertise. 

One of the many things I have learned along the way is to: NEVER give up on your dreams. No matter how hard, no matter how painful it is at the moment, I promise, "this too shall pass." Whatever you are doing, keep pressing on and climbing higher, because the higher you go the more perspective you gain, the more ground you cover, and the stronger you become. The view is ALWAYS worth it from the peak.

As Philippians 4:13 says, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." I am truly thankful for every person along the way who has encouraged me in my journey along the way. I am by no means at the top of my mountain, but I am headed in the right direction. I truly couldn't do it without your love and support!! And without my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who has guided me every step of the way.

Wherever you are along your journey, keep pursuing your dreams no matter what other people say. Do that special something that makes your heart skip a beat. ❤️

Now, sappy post ends here.😝I hope it inspired you to keep moving forward!

What challenges have you overcome this past year or what are you learning to overcome? I would love to hear your story. Email me at: emilyannephotoart@gmail.com or DM me on Instagram HERE or even feel free to comment on this blog post below.

Exotic Artist Portraits Shot in Malaga Spain in the Alcazaba Fortress by Nashville Portrait Photographer Emily Anne Photography

This beautiful lady, Rachelle, is stunning both inside and out. Here is just a taste of our exotic photoshoot in the heart of Malaga, Spain in an ancient Castle: Castillo de Alcazaba.

You should absolutely check out this talented woman's music... Rachelle Fisher is ridiculously talented!!! Here is the link to here music: http://www.rachellefisher.com. Do yourself a favor and go listen! Bob Marley said it so well, “One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.” 

When I listen to Rachelle's voice, I truly feel this way! She has SUCH a gifting to bring uplifting joy and peace through her original music. One can just feel  soul and passion in her music. 

This venue is absolutely gorgeous. Alcazaba de Malaga was built in the early 11th century by the Hammudid Muslim Dynasty. This fortress overlooks the entire city of Malaga including the pier with a clear view to the Atlantic Ocean. 

Interestingly, in 1487, King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella of Spain captured the entire city of Malaga from the Moors. The inner citadel called the "Torre del Homenaje" became renown as their place of victory.  

I hope to one day photograph the dreamiest wedding up in this Alcazaba of Málaga fortress, perhaps in one of the inner citadels laden with rustic brick, palm trees, and marble floors.

This couple is just wonderful. Needless to say, I had such  blast working with them and capturing their joyous celebration their announcement of a lifelong commitment to one another!!

Aren't they just the cutest!? This beautiful couple is in another magical place. :)&nbsp;

This setup was one of my most favorites. In the past, clients have talked about bringing props, but none have gone as far to create this rustic, charming picnic set for a romantic, dreamy look! 

They are so hilarious. I absolutely love how Ross makes Lauren laugh all the time. :)&nbsp;

They are so adorable together... I love how Ross makes Lauren laugh all the time. Having fun while shooting is what it's all about!! :) And the titles of the books were so perfect. 

To get this shot, I basically laid in the grass to get an earthy, close & artsy look... and I love how it turned out. 

SO beautiful. Look at that gorgeous engagement ring!!&nbsp;

I love the verse on Songs of Solomon talking about Solomon's wife leaning up on him, which is a mirror image of when we fully trust Jesus, we are able to find rest, peace and protection, and that's what I am reminded of when I look at this image of Lauren. 

Smiles, smiles &amp; more smiles.&nbsp;

Smiles, smiles & more smiles. 

And for another look, I LOVED this rusted iron shed. The blue tones look so good on their skin.&nbsp;
