Nashville Artist Photo Shoot: Blues woman Christy Hathcock at Sinema

I thought I’d share some recent work that’s a little different than I usually share. This is not a wedding, a family session, maternity or babies. This is a photo shoot all about the vivacious Miss Christy Hathcock, blues woman extraordinaire! Christy’s personality is full of life and laughter and there’s never a dull moment around her. She brought all her charisma and energy to the shoot and made it incredibly fun! Sinema served as the location for this urban glam look, one of Nashville’s hottest new restaurants.


Nashville Guitarist: Lance Allen-Fingerstyle Guitarist Extraordinaire

May I present to you a man who can play a mean gee-tar: my husband, my best friend, and a very talented musician, Lance Allen! Lance has an artist deal with Gretsch Guitars and will be featured on their website soon so he needed a photo to submit- thus our excursion around Nashville on Saturday. He proudly plays the G6120 hollow body because Chet Atkins is/was the ultimate when it comes to playing fingerstyle. Lance attributes his love for fingerstyle guitar to Chet and considers him his top guitar hero. But I’d be remiss if I did not mention Merle Travis and Tommy Emmanuel as critical influences as well.

Lance has become such a polished, effortless, and professional player over the years, especially since the time I first met him. He’s always actively trying to better himself as a guitarist. I am so proud of his musicianship and determination to make a living with guitar, have fun with guitar, and continue to grow and develop as a guitarist. He has two cd projects, Sometimes in Life and Naturally. I encourage you to purchase these cds because the music is for everyone and for all occasions. Even if you think instrumental music is just blah, well, this kind of instrumental music is not blah 🙂 its amazing to listen to, comforting, jolly, and generally pleasant to any ear. All the music on his cds are original, carefully thought out, written, and performed by Lance. He teaches guitar full time in Smyrna, TN and I can honestly say he loves it! He absolutely loves teaching guitar to people of all ages and seeing his students grow to love the instrument as much as he does.

Well I could go on and on, but hey, I’m married to this man so I know first hand of his awesomeness! Please check out Lance’s website at and contact him if you have an itch to pick on a guitar.
