Nashville, TN Newborn Photographer | Hannah Joy

Wednesday, February 25th, 2015

There aren’t many greater feelings of longing and pining than that of waiting for a child to love and raise. As something that I now find is far more common than I ever knew, infertility has become such a strong, driving force in my business as a newborn photographer.

I get so excited for each and every client that brings their new baby into my studio. It could be that they easily got pregnant with their first, second, or third child, or it could be that they’ve adopted a child to round out their family. Those families are so precious to me, but none is more precious than the couple who brings in their newborn for whom they’ve waited years. Whether adoption or medical avenues were their choice, the excitement is still the same, and it’s always such an honor to document this special time for them.

Brad and Heather are friends of mine from church, and I’ve been praying for them to be connected with a child, their child, for a couple of years. Heather gave me the exciting news about Baby Hannah on Thanksgiving morning, and I cried tears of joy for this sweet, sweet family.

Here are some of my favorite images to date, if for no other reason than the fact that I know that this baby girl is with two Christian parents who prayed for her years before she was born, and God made sure that she found her way to them.

Nashville TN Family Photographer: The Hollinger Family

Wednesday, February 18th, 2015

Since it’s Thursday, let’s throw it back to October with this sweet party of six.  Andy and my husband met at work, and then Malaina and I quickly became friends. I can’t say enough nice things about them and their awesome children; we feel pretty blessed to know them!

We met up at their home near my studio to get some outdoor photos with the gorgeous fall color. It was a bit chilly, but we ran around until sunset and had all kinds of laughs. Here are a few of my favorites from the day…

Middle Tn Family Photographer | The Shanks Family

Wednesday, February 11th, 2015

Back in the fall, on one of the coldest photo shoots that I’ve been on in a while, I met up with one of my favorite hometown clients. Wes and I went to school together, and I was so honored to photograph Camrin three times during her first year. They needed photos for their family Christmas card, and I was thrilled to meet up with them for that.

Nashville TN Family Portraits | The Holman Family

Monday, February 2nd, 2015

I love how my job connects me with some of the sweetest families in Middle Tennessee. Take the Holman Family, for instance. They brought their twins to me soon after they brought them both home from the hospital, and we instantly clicked. You can tell that Nathan and Stacy were born to be parents, and that Harper and Hudson or so blessed to have them. Each time I meet with them, I love seeing how the girls have changed and hearing all about their new developments and quirks.

Here are a few of my favorites from their session last session:

This last one cracks me up. Sometimes your sister just doesn’t want to come be in a photo with you, and that’s okay.   :)
