“When my clients request drone photography services, I request Huffoto!” -Teri Radcliff, Realtor
Huff has always had a passion for photography, and his entrepreneurial spirit comes from his family. “Photography is a passion of mine that I have pursued for about ten years now. I was raised in an entrepreneurial family, so I guess it’s in my blood.”
Huff is a man of many talents. He does wedding photography on the ground as well as his work in the sky, rain or shine. “We have shot several events in the rain due to there being no plan B, but we have walked away with great images because of it.”
And Huff embraces technology in both photography and as a means of connecting with others. “[We offer] drone photography and videography as well as studio and on location photography with intricate lighting. Our lighting techniques set us apart from the competition. We are on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Busker, Google Hangouts, Snapchat, and you can find us at www.huffoto.com or in the App store of your choice. Just search Huffoto.”
For Huff, challenges while on a job are what create opportunities for something special. View his work here or download the Huffoto Weddings app.

What is Pre-Parental Counseling?
Thinking about starting a family? Pre-parental counseling helps ease the transition for couples as they navigate the stages of pregnancy and postpartum.
Counseling is an effective tool that more and more Americans are seeking, from families to couples to individuals. Here in Middle Tennessee, Emily Pardy of Ready Nest Counseling provides a unique form of counseling that has long been missing in the therapy field- counseling for those seeking to become parents, (pre-parental counseling).
Pardy discovered the absence of this kind of counseling through personal experience. “Several years ago, my husband and I were trying to decide if we were ready to start a family. We sought help from the therapist who had walked us through pre-marital counseling, and when we approached him with the idea for giving us “pre-parental counseling” he was perplexed! He didn’t have any curriculum or resources to offer us, but he was willing to sit down with us and discuss our expectations of parenthood and how we felt it would affect our relationship.”
An Investment in Your Relationship
Through hard work Pardy and her husband feathered their proverbial nest using the tools they picked up from their counseling. “When we finally got pregnant and had our first daughter, it immediately became evident to us what a gift that investment had been in our relationship.”
And with the recognition of the gift that counseling had given them, a light bulb went off for Pardy-others could benefit from this type of work. “As our friends started to become parents as well, we quickly learned we were far from alone in our challenges. I had always valued my experience with therapy as a client; but, when I started to share my story with other parents it truly became a passion of mine to help ease this transition for couples as they navigated the stages of pregnancy and postpartum. After I had my second daughter, I wrote my first book, For All Maternity about my own journey into motherhood. Then, I decided to go back to school and get my Masters in Marriage & Family Therapy to gain the education necessary to turn my passion into a profession..”
Focusing on Couples as a Whole
Pardy launched Ready Nest Counseling to work with families in, as she puts it, “in such a tender phase of life.” From conception to pregnancy to postpartum to infertility, Pardy seeks to help families in all stages of growth and while focusing on couples as a whole to ensure that both women and men get what they need from counseling.
“Trying for a baby, childbirth, and infertility are all major milestones that affect almost every aspect of a couple’s life together. While society tends to feminize this experience, Ready Nest Counseling focuses on the entire system that is affected. My goal is to offer couples preventative help as early as possible and provide them with the resources they need to integrate care throughout the entire phase. Ready Nest Counseling is at the forefront of integrating care with a couple’s emotional and relational wellness in mind.”
When You Get Help, You Also Give Help
Babies are more than just a focus in Pardy’s work in the office; she also implements a charitable component to her work to help newborns in need. “Ready Nest Counseling is dedicated to donating a portion of all session fees to the March of Dimes. The mission of the March of Dimes is to improve the health of babies. When you get help, you also give help!”
