Happy Monday, everyone!

A month or two ago, I announced that I had the opportunity to photograph a feature for Nashville Lifestyles, and I was officially published in November. I don’t typically post much outside of personal/weddings/engagements, but I wanted to share some of these photos, as the people I met are doing incredible things and I wanted to share their stories. Now that the issue is off the stands, I thought I’d post a few behind the scenes photographs from the shoot. I had such a great time meeting each of the “Heroes” and hearing their stories. Here are just a few of the photos from behind the scenes that weren’t featured in the magazine.

Jena NardellaBlood:Water Mission – Co-Founder/CEO
*I’ve been following Blood:Water for years due to their incredible mission in Africa, so this was such a wonderful opportunity to photograph the founder, see the offices and learn even more about the organization.

Zoe, Patrick and Nick Nisolo – Founders
*These shoes are beautiful and the stories behind these shoes are even more inspiring. Be sure to check them out!

David and Laurie VanderpoolMobile Medical Disaster Relief/Live Beyond – Founders

*These two are just doing incredible things. It all began with Hurricane Katrina when they packed up David’s truck, headed south and provided free healthcare. It’s grown into so much more now, incredible work in Haiti and a beautiful mission. They even make trips once a month to continue healthcare in Haiti. The love and joy are just so apparent with these two. Be sure to check out their mission and organization here.

Thank you for all you do for Music City!
