The Darling Mel of The Velvet Trunk

Yesterday we did a shoot for our dear & sweet friend, Mel. Mel is an amazing photographer and person and has such a kind heart and sweet spirit. Mel specializes in high end portrait photography for babies, children, etc. and her images are amazing!!! Here are some of the shots we took of her for her site/publicity.

We started the shoot off at
SOL in downtown Franklin with only about an hour and a half of shoot time...

Then we ended up across the street....

And finally we ended up on the top of a parking garage! Here is a "behind the scenes" shot of the setup:

Doesn't she look amazing??

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. y'all did an awesome job!!! the pics look GREAT!

  2. Umm... I said that... not my husband, Dan! :)

  3. Looks like y'all had fun! The second pic is really strong... good light, comp, and color!

  4. Dear Zach & Jody,
    I'm Melanie's twin sis (I don't really call her Melanie, we have lots of nicknames for each other and I'll have to check with her 1st to see which ones I can use in public; so as not to embarass her). When she told me that she was going to have her pic taken I was really suprised. She doesn't usually like being on the other side of the camera. I looked at your website the other day and was so impressed by your work!; and thus really amped up to see how Mel's pics would turn out. She called me this morning to tell me ya'll had posted some so I jumped on the site right away and WOW! Mel is always beautiful (on the inside & out) and your pics captured her awesome personality in a major way! Thank you guys so much for making her feel comfortable and furthermore, for being true friends to my sis. Knowing that she has friends like you makes it (a teeny-tiny) bit more bearable being so far away from my other half. Even though we have not met, I'm going to give you both a shout-out of LOVE & THANKS!
    P.S.- This is the 1st time I have posted a comment on a blogspot. So can anyone tell me where the heck the SPELL-CHECK is?!
