New Day Photography

Misty Westebbe may have opened New Day Photography only a decade ago, but she has had a camera in her hand since she was eight. She is more than just a portraitist; she strives to be a storyteller.

With the help of her husband, Bruce, who left corporate America to join Misty at New Day, their 2.5-acre property is an ever-changing and exciting backdrop for their clients of all ages. Just west of downtown Franklin, their little blue house with a white picket fence sits on an incredible piece of land that serves as the perfect studio, inside and out. With a different background or prop around every corner, from winding trails and a tire-swing to a ’57 Chevy and two ponies, everywhere you look is picturesque.

As a family photographer, Misty compares the client partnership to choosing a family doctor. “It doesn’t mean you just do families, it means you’re there for the newborn shoot, the engagement shoot, the maternity shoot, all the way to the high school senior when they’re graduating and eventually starting a family of their own,” she says. “I strive to create the images that show the personalities of the subject at a particular moment in their life.”
