About Me

Murfreesboro, Tennessee
Welcome to "Cogknitive images" photography, where Holly Coggin and Kristi Knitter work as a team to create keepsakes that are a reflection of each individual. We believe that a photography session should be as fun for you as it is for us! Therefore, we generally use you as our guide. It is our goal to capture you doing things you enjoy with the ones you love. We hope you enjoy this sampling of our recent work and please consider us for your future photography needs.

Hello Spring!

Oh, what a beautiful day in middle Tennessee!!  Had to catch a few rays of that gorgeous sunshine with these two sun starved babies. Baby B is undoubtedly the sweetest thing ever.  He giggles and watches sister's every move.  He is so content and happy!!  Sis was happy to "help" us take B's pictures, but seriously had not one intention of getting her picture made.  She and Grammy just picked and sniffed the new flowers.  Oooh,  but what to do with those sneaky camera people!  Enjoy your slideshow, momma!

Family Involvement!!

Well, whether my family likes to admit it or not, they have gotten bitten by the photography bug too!  The doves in the top pictures are daily visitors at our back window.  We've come to expect them each morning as we are getting ready for work.  Heck, I've even looked up some facts and found that these creatures mate for life, so now I am more attached.  One morning this week my husband insisted that I get their picture.  He's gotten to be real helpful at making photo op suggestions :)  I am glad we got them though and  I think we should name them now!
Then, just this morning, Tripp wants to know where "his" camera was.  After carefully getting it out, turning it on, and finding his favorite subjects, he composed his shot.  Just check out the concentration on his face.  The wrestlers are Finley and his partner, Hornswaugle (which I obviously cannot spell!).  As my boy approaches his 8th birthday, he is a fanatic for wrestling.  He still loves all his other sports, is quickly learning his multiplication facts, and is as all boy as ever.  I can't believe that it was 8 years ago when this sweet thing entered our lives.   

Doug and Rae

Rae and Doug are planning an intimate wedding that celebrates the special things in their life-family, faith, and love.  We met them today at Starbuck's in Murfreesboro which is where they met for their first date and also where Doug popped the big question.  Where better to snap a few shots to include at the wedding reception?  We had beautiful weather (especially for February) and are keeping our fingers crossed for more pretty sun on the big day :)

And...She's Off!!!

Oh, how we hope that groundhog was right and spring is on its way!!!  Last week snow... this week...70 degrees.  Dear Lord, if you're listening, this is our kind of weather!  Thank you and keep it coming!  Since the sun has been out so have we!  Little "Miss. Mary Mack" had a grand time running and exploring this afternoon, and mommy captured some of the fun.  Enjoy these pics and check back for more updates soon. We have a couple of exciting shoots this week, so we will keep you posted!

Senior Pictures-Cogknitive sTyLe!

We take fun, funky, fresh, modern senior portraits on location.  Portraits that reflect your personality and define you as a senior!
We don't...
use studio backdrops, limit poses or clothing changes, have minimum purchases, use the same locations or dated props.  
Why don't we?  Because we like images to look like this.....
So, what do you do??  Well, it goes like this...
You pick out the outfits you want to wear.  You pick an available date.  We have a talk about what defines you as a senior and what you want your images to reflect about you.  We travel around to locations on the day of your shoot and have lots of fun.  You can use the props you want, wear the clothes you want, change when you want, bring what you want.  (We've even shot with cows!)
So then what?
Within a week we'll blog some samples and post your images for online viewing.  Tag them on Facebook and be sure to send your friends the link so they can check out your awesome self!  We'll blog some of our favorites, but you can view them all on our site, show them to friends and family all over the place, buy digital files, or purchase prints and products that you want.
What??  I can buy the files?  Really?
Yep.  You can print as many as you want from the CD you purchase, but the release does prevent you from selling the images or publishing them and not giving credit to the photographers.
What's this going to cost me?
We bill $50 per hour for your shoot with the first hour fee due at the time of booking.  Fifteen minutes into the next hour bills the next hourly rate.  Your hourly fee pays for the photographers' time, talents, and processing and posting.  You don't pay extra to use your items or change clothes or locations.  If you want a few with your boyfriend, girlfriend, BFF, it's fine as long as it's ok with your mom or dad.
Digital files and prints are sold separately as you need them.  If you only want a 5x7, that's what you buy.  If you want proofbooks, albums, gallery wraps, wallets, or whatever, you can buy those too.
