Nashville Tn Child Photographer: Averi {Two Years Old}

Friday, January 30th, 2015

I’ve had the pleasure of photographing sweet Averianna since she was itty bitty, and I’m always so happy to see her and her family. This year, we met up on two separate afternoons. Can you see the difference in the two? Look how grown up she looks with that big girl haircut!

(But first, be sure to check out her past photo sessions: 4 months, 8 months, 12 months)

No matter how many times I see these images, I can’t help but laugh a bit. I guess laughter is even contagious in photos. :)

Brentwood, TN Baby Photographer | Sydney {Nine Months Old}

Monday, January 26th, 2015

Before sweet Sydney comes into the studio tomorrow for her one-year session (and cake smash!), I thought I had better post her nine-month photo shoot images. :) She brought her whole family in for this one so that we could get a Christmas card photo. I always love seeing Sydney with her big sister, Maggie. The sweetest.

Nashville Family Photographer | The Bradley Family

Saturday, January 17th, 2015

You know those little indicators that pop up each September that remind you that Autumn is arriving? Crisp air, the fall of the first few leaves, pumpkin spice, scarves and boots…. or when I hear from certain clients that are ready to book their annual family photo shoot. The only thing better than being chosen as a family’s fall portrait photographer is being chosen year after year. :)

The Bradley Family and I always meet up at the same park so that we can get photos of sweet Paul as he grows (and what I handsome little guy he’s growing up to be!).  I love that he finally remembers me each year, or at least pretends to. We stomp around like old pals and catch up on all the new things he’s into. Here’s a bit of the fun we had that day…

Are you in need of new family portraits? We don’t need fall weather for a great photo shoot! (Besides, it’s almost 60 degrees out as I type this!)  We can either meet at my studio or bundle up with some scarves and hot cocoa outside. Just fill out the contact form above and we’ll plan something perfect for you!

Nashville, TN Family Photographer | The Fitzpatricks

Monday, January 12th, 2015

I was so excited to see the Fitzpatricks for their session in my hometown. Kellie (the gorgeous mom) was my wedding photographer back in 2007, and we did a portrait session with her when Chase returned from Iraq. To say that I was excited (and nervous) to switch up roles would be an understatement.

This party of five brought their A game and I’m so excited with the images that we created. Our end goal was a large canvas collection for their living room, and I love how the rust background and fall scenery fit into the room!

Side note about the photo below:  I asked everyone to line up, hold hands, and walk across the field. Kellie, the thinker, starting asking questions about where they should look, how fast they should go, etc. Before I could answer, John grabbed her hand, told her to chill out, and led his family across the field. This is the photo that I captured, and I feel like it speaks volumes about their family– John being the laid-back but fearless leader and Kellie looking back at her babies. :) How cool is my job?

Here’s a photo from Kellie’s Facebook page that shows the collection on their wall just before Christmas. :)
