Eilas is a name inspired by my two beautiful children: Eisley and Silas.
Photography has been a lasting passion in my life. Beginning at age 15, it was the only thing I wanted to do.
I finished photography school in 2003 just before the birth of our first child and from then on I knew that I wanted to photograph children and their families.
I LOVE what I do and love being a small part of my client's lives in creating memories for them.
I am a native Tennessean and live in Franklin with my amazing husband and our crazy kids.
Thank you for spending a little time on my blog.
What To Expect
What I love most about photography is capturing unplanned moments.
I don't pose people or use fancy props.
I usually ask that my clients just ignore me completely and interact with each other.
I don't have big equipment or assistants, just me and my camera.
I work on location, outdoors, at whatever interesting or pretty spots I can find.
I'm up for anything, so if you have any interesting ideas or favorite spots, let me hear it!

I took a vacation this past week to Florida with my family and our close friends. I’ll post some pictures of our trip later, but here is a shoot that I did while I was there. Melody, a friend travelling with us, has a son whom I’ve photographed his entire life. Her sister-in-law has seen his pictures and hired me to photograph her beautiful girls at her home in Florida while we were there. These girls were so affectionate with each other. I didn’t give them any direction at all, they just kept hugging each other and laughing together. They were an absolute joy to photograph!
