The March Of Dimes’ Best Of Clarksville 2013 | Pictured Moments By April Will Be There!

What an honor it has been to be nominated for Best Studio Photographer for this year’s March of Dimes event:  Best of Clarksville 2013!  Our area is home to many talented and influential artists, so to be nominated and included with some of the best is quite the compliment.  The annual event is a fundraiser benefiting the March of Dimes while highlighting some favorite local businesses nominated by the people of Clarksville.  The attendees present at the actual event are able to cast a vote for their favorite nominees within each category, awarding a select few officially the “Best Of Clarksville”.  If you’re interested in joining in on the fun, donating to the March of Dimes, and celebrating with us – the event is on Thursday, October 3rd from 5pm until 8pm at the Two Rivers Center in Clarksville.  Here’s a link to the event hosted on Facebook, too – check it out and RSVP!


I will have a booth at the event and I would LOVE to meet some of you and see some familiar faces, too.  While I’m grateful for the opportunity to have my work featured, I would really love to pay it forward and feature some other local, fresh faces in photography too.  Alex Sumner Photography and Sweet and Sassy Photography will be featuring their work at my booth and ready to meet some of my favorite Clarksville clients and friends.  I can’t wait for you to meet these talented photographers and check out the beautiful artwork they’re producing.  You won’t be disappointed!


Alex Sumner Photography is a budding business local to Clarksville.  Alex works magic with children and families with a unique style that stands out and leaves her signature on every image she creates.  I sought her out for portraits of my own daughter, Kylie, and Alex had such a beautiful vision that she brought to life.  Here is a sampling of her beautiful work:


Crystal Belbin of Sweet and Sassy Photography started her boudoir business near Camp Lejeune, NC and has recently relocated to the Clarksville, TN area.  She specializes in natural light boudoir portraits with a soft, feminine style that is nothing short of stunning.  She’s known for capturing the classic, true beauty of her clients while bringing out their natural sensuality for an unforgettable boudoir experience.  Here is a sampling of some of Crystal’s gorgeous portfolio:

So, come on out and see us!  There will be a Pictured Moments by April newborn portrait session up for auction with the proceeds going to the March of Dimes, and Crystal and Alex will have some fabulous goodies of their own to share with all of you as well.  We’re bound to have fun networking together, reaching out to the locals, and raising money for the March of Dimes.  I can’t wait for you to join us!  See you there 🙂
