Nashville Portrait Studio | Ryder is ONE!

Wednesday, December 31st, 2014

I always know it’s going to be a party at the studio when Ryder and his big brother, Landry, come to visit. This time, we were celebrating the fact that Ryder turned one! Thankfully, the weather was perfect for a stroll down to the neighborhood park near the studio. Afterwards, the boys settled in for story time with their sweet momma. Seriously, how fun is my job?!

Cookeville TN Baby Photographer | Harlan {5 Days Old}

Tuesday, December 23rd, 2014

These days, I mostly work in my natural light photography studio in Nashville, but every now and then, I break out of my comfort zone and head into a clients’ home. These photos of baby Harlan were taken just off of the dining room with the help of his big brother, Kade. :)

I thought that Harlan was on his best behavior for me that day, since he never made a peep during the entire session. However, it turns out that he’s just a perfect baby. He proved that to me when I babysat him a couple weeks ago. Seriously- best baby ever. I sure do love him and his sweet family!










I can’t wait to see this crew again for his three-month session on Saturday!     (Yes, I’m still two months behind on blogging.)    Keep an eye on my Facebook page for a sneak peek!

Did  you miss the blog post of Harlan’s pretty momma and sister when they were awaiting his arrival? You can still see it here—>  Waiting on Harlan

Baby Photographer, Nashville TN | Lola {10 Days Old}

Wednesday, December 17th, 2014

One of the biggest compliments that I can receive about my work is when a client refers a friend my way. When Taura and Nick mentioned that they found me through Wade and Kacey, I knew that I was in for a treat.

Taura and Nick dropped by the studio one evening to discuss my Oh, Baby! program and plan their newborn session. We sat in the meeting room and joked about baby Lola making her appearance early, then we checked out some options in our prop room to discuss what suited their style.

As luck would have it, Nick sent me a text the following day saying that Lola had arrived a week early- on the day that we had joked about! Luckily, we were all prepared and I couldn’t wait to meet their newest little ‘turkey’, as they called her.

Lola is absolute perfection, and her parents are noticeably smitten, of course. Here’s a bit of the fun we had that day…

Nashville, TN Baby Photographer | Carver {Six Months Old}

Wednesday, December 10th, 2014

Oh, hi there!  It’s been so long, I almost forgot how to post a blog! ;)   Seriously, y’all… my cup runneth over with amazing clients this year, especially during my recent busy season. Are you ready for an overload of blog posts? Because they’re coming!

Let’s start with this sweet, handsome, happy baby boy. Carver is one of my Oh, Baby! planners, and this was his second session with ESP (third if you count the one where he was in his mommy’s tummy). Each time a client comes in at six months old, I’m always so excited to see how their little personalities are developing and which family members they look most like. I never get over how much a baby changes in the first six months of life. Click here to see Carver’s newborn photo shoot.

Carver brought his mom and grandma to the studio that day, so we had to get photos with both, of course! Here are my favorites with this sweet crew…

I’m currently booking sessions for mid-January and beyond. Want more info for your own session? Simply fill out the contact form and we’ll get the party started.
