I spent some time at Churchill Downs over the weekend photographing all the fabulous fashion for ELLE.com at the Kentucky Derby. This has always been one of my favorite events to photograph because I grew up riding horses and competing on a world level. I hope to get back into riding one day, but until then, my yearly trip to the Derby will have to do!
Above are a few of my favorite shots, but you can check out the entire spread on ELLE here.
Thanks Imogene + Willie! Get all the details on my favorite things, here.
Confession: Imogene + Willie throw some of the best summer shindigs in town. You’ve heard me rant about them before and last night’s get together was up to par with all the others. The Ettes and Ultras S/C provided tunes, Mas Tacos dished the grub and The Peach Truck made sure you left with a bagged sweet treat. I love to wander into I+W with my camera because the store always seems to have a new piece or some sort of beautiful arrangement that I must photograph. I tell ya, true artists and taste makers over there.
Also wanted to quickly note how proud I am of all the national attention our city has been given via The New York Times and GQ. Everyone has their opinion on the pieces but at the end of the day we should celebrate the fact that we live is such a prosperous and downright cool place. Cheers to that!

The absolutely stunning Gail O’Neill wearing a self made hat, Alexander McQueen dress and Giovanni Rossi heels. She was one of the first models ever featured in US Elle. Nice full circle moment.

Here’s to many more gorgeous backyard get togethers with close friends and good music!

Instead of giving into my urges to stay inside bundled up on the couch watching movies (it was a cold, damp day yesterday) I drove over to Green Hills to check out the much anticipated West Elm Nashville + Etsy: We Love Handmade Art event, which was curated and co-hosted by my friend Elise Yetton of Pennyweight. Elise has impeccable taste and it certainly showed through the work of the hand selected Tennessee Etsy sellers. I took a few photos of the items that caught my eye but check out all their shops for a little Sunday splurge.

Summer essentials: vintage acid wash backpack, iPad, business cards, bracelets, Moleskine notebook, change holder, belt, film camera (when I don’t have my trusty 7D on me) and a little Victoria’s Secret blush and Sonia Kashuk gloss.
From local to national and world-renowned, Nashville Fashion Week 2012 had it all.

My latest spread on Elle.com from South by Southwest. Below are a few of my favorite images but make sure to check out the whole feature here.
Those of you who know me probably know that I’m pretty addicted to high quality boots. Nashville Boot Union is the newest member to join the ranks of our local vintage community (and take more of my monies). Here’s a sneak preview of what you can expect to see in stock in the coming months. They’re working on their site now, but feel free to hit them up via their Etsy shop, HERE. Inventory is updated daily, requests are welcome and free local pickup is available.
