Lately I've been really spontaneous in my photography and just letting my camera lead me in the direction I need to go. Not really having a plan and being completely free in shooting whatever comes my way. Lately I've been messaging awesome Instagram accounts I love that live in the Nashville area to do a shoot and get coffee. And literally it's the greatest thing ever. I've already met so many amazing humans that are inspiring me. I'm learning something new everyday hearing people tell there stories. Social media is such a powerful tool you can use for good and build up to encourage and uplift other humans.
“I am learning to say Yes, to be daring and spontaneous, to hurl myself into people and places and moments without hesitation or second-guessing myself — to challenge my anxieties, to confront my fears, and trust unwaveringly in chance and fate to lead me to where I am supposed to be.”

A few weeks ago I met up with the sweetest human being on planet earth right now and her name is Brooke. I met Brooke on Instagram as well and we were in a group message for photographers. I saw her page and loved how it looked + she was the cutest person. I decided to DM her and let her know she pretty much rocks and so do her photos.
I asked her if she would like to do a spontaneous photoshoot with me. She of course said yes. Brooke has never been to the 12 south area here in Nashville so I had to take here there and of course photograph here first time strolling through the cute little streets of 12 south. Her reaction seeing her look at all the cute little touristy spots people take pictures at, made my whole day.
CHECK OUT HER INSTAGRAM AND PHOTOGRAPHY PAGE.

I love meeting new people now that have become the greatest friends and getting to witness there complete joy that they have for the little things in life, make my heart just dance. I took her by the well known can you guess... Amelia's flower truck, back at it again haha.
We also made a spontaneous decision to take a few photos of the lady that was selling the flowers because she had the cutest outfit first of all and second she was just the sweetest person ever. how could we leave without taking her photo.
We then figured it would be so cool to take sunset pictures at the Parthenon and see what cool spots we could find. Not knowing what cool shots we were going to have, we had the most sickest lighting and shadows ever.
As a photographer I want to be more spontaneous with what I shoot. letting my mind be free and always having fun when shooting. don't worry about having the perfect background or a specific look just shoot! You never know what will come out of it. The photos that me and Brooke took that day was probably my favorites because we didn't have a plan we just kinda wondered around looking for cool spaces and all the photos turned out super awesome. Sometimes the best moments are the ones you didn't plan at all.
