Mills Family :: Spring Hill, Tennessee

I photographed Addison’s first year a while ago, and couldn’t have been happier when her mama called me to do a full family session last fall! I was glad we finally got her husband in the pictures, too;-)What a gorgeous day we had to enjoy at Harvey Park!

Nelson Family :: Nashville, Tennessee

What a lovely family I was lucky enough to photograph a few months ago. The Nelsons are friends of the Harts, and we all used to live in the same Nashville neighborhood! Their beautiful daughter, Anne Sims, had me chasing after her the entire session – and I loved every minute of it!

Shop Around the Corner | NS Pottery

Shop Around the Corner is a monthly series where I share a variety of fan-tas-tic small business owners that I think you’d really dig. It’s very important to me to share the love with fellow small business folks – the welcoming community of entrepreneurs I’ve met is quite strong, and there is so much incredible talent out there! I look forward to introducing you to great photographers, designers, shop owners…the list goes on and on!

Welcome to another feature in my Shop Around the Corner series: NS Pottery! I first learned of Natalie and her amazing clay creations through the Influence Network last year. As soon as I hopped over to her Etsy page, I immediately fell in love! I own a pair of her mint earrings and a mug, and could easily add all of her items to my wish list. I think you’ll like meeting her today!

What made you decide to open your shop?

As an 18 year old girl fresh out of high school, I didn’t know what I wanted to do with the rest of my  life. I found a local potter who gave classes out of his studio and since ceramics was my favorite class in school, I decided to sign up. I didn’t know if having a career as a potter was even feasible, but I knew it was something that I loved doing. After learning from him for a year and a half, I opened my own studio. Having a few successful events at local craft shows encouraged me to open my online shop.

 

Where do you find inspiration?

Inspiration comes much more freely when I’m actively living life by doing things I enjoy rather than sitting around trying to search for it. I feel refreshed and inspired after being outside, trying new things, and spending quality time with people that I love.

 

Favorite item that you sell?

My favorite item right now is my new Personalized Couple Coffee Mug.

Any advice for those just starting out?

Growing a business takes time. Make sure you’re doing something that you love and expect your business to evolve as you expand your skills and see what people are most drawn to. Don’t think you have to have every detail planned out before you begin.

 

Three words to describe you/your life.

Creative, fulfilling, adventurous

 

Story or moment in business that was memorable/impactful:

Two and a half years ago, I was featured on a local news channel after being nominated as a finalist in the Martha Stewart American Made Awards. Seeing my face on television was surreal! (You can watch the clip here: https://vimeo.com/50446932)

Necklaces 1

 

Favorite tv show:

Honestly, I watch very little tv, but I love Everybody Loves Raymond.

 

Favorite ice cream flavor:

dark chocolate

 

Favorite vacation spot:

Anywhere with sand and the ocean- Tybee Island is my current favorite

Key to My Heart Necklaces

 

Favorite way to spend a Saturday afternoon:

Laying outside in the sun with a magazine is something I’ve been looking forward to all winter!

 

Favorite part of running your business:

Unloading my kiln after the final firing and seeing how everything turned out is scary and exciting at the same time. A lot of potters relate opening the kiln to being like Christmas morning! I also love connecting with my fan base on Instagram and sharing what I’ve been up to.

 

Thank you again, Natalie!

Be sure to check out her Etsy shop and her blog for updates!

Olivia | High School Senior :: Columbia, Tennessee

Gorgeous Olivia! I hadn’t seen this girl since she was a student in my mom’s first grade class…and now she’s about to graduate high school!

She has the most joyful spirit – I seriously loved photographing every laugh. Olivia, I hope you enjoy your last few months of high school – they’ll fly by!

Robert | One Year :: Brentwood, Tennessee

Robert is one year old! We thankfully beat the rain on our session day…it was a close one!

Photographing him and his family has been such fun, especially his sweet relationship with big brother Truman. Be sure to look back at his three-month and six-month sessions, too!

Robert’s parents signed up for my “Welcome, Baby!” First-Year Portrait Plan. If you or someone you know is expecting, and would like to learn more about these sessions, email me at molly@simplyMphotography.com. This could be a great baby gift!
