Waiting // Memphis Portrait Beauty Boudoir Photographer

Patiently waiting for scans of a private session I photographed recently. Hair, makeup, Midtown class, the WORKS! Dream stuff! So in honor of what I can’t show you, here is some thing I haven’t shown you. A little Memphis grit, for ya grind.

The Sun

Have you ever seen
anything
in your life
more wonderful

than the way the sun,
every evening,
relaxed and easy,
floats toward the horizon

and into the clouds or the hills,
or the rumpled sea,
and is gone–
and how it slides again

out of the blackness,
every morning,
on the other side of the world,
like a red flower

streaming upward on its heavenly oils,
say, on a morning in early summer,
at its perfect imperial distance–
and have you ever felt for anything

such wild love–
do you think there is anywhere, in any language,
a word billowing enough
for the pleasure

that fills you,
as the sun
reaches out,
as it warms you

as you stand there,
empty-handed–
or have you too
turned from this world–

or have you too
gone crazy
for power,
for things?

Crimson and clover // Memphis Portrait Beauty Photographer

Ah, now I don’t hardly know her
But I think I can love her
Crimson and clover

Ah, now when she comes walkin’ over
Now I’ve been waitin’ to show her
Crimson and clover
Over and over

Yeah, if I’m not such a sweet thing
I wanna do everything
What a beautiful feelin’
Crimson and clover
Over and over

Crimson and clover, over and over
Crimson and clover, over and over
Crimson and clover, over and over
Crimson and clover, over and over

Cliff diving // Portrait lifestyle Photography Memphis Tn

Arkansas is one of my favorite places to visit.  It is such a beautiful state with many wonderful places to enjoy the outdoors.  Heber Springs has great cliffs for diving.  On this particular day there were more kids than I have ever seen before.  Lots of crazy energy as they encouraged each other to have the confidence to jump.
