East Nashville family fun | nashville family photographer

there are so many families that came into my life thru photography. a lot of them when the kiddos are just wee lil babes. what a honor to watch them grow, i like to think i am the keeper of their childhood πŸ™‚ lol Yeah I know that is probably a bit much but come on… it makes me feel important.

But anyway.. these adorable kiddos are so lucky to have the most amazing parents, they invest so much time and love into their family time. I love the intentional time, plans, outings and just acts of love they pour into them. They wanted a fun session in East Nashville because they visit there often, eating food truck finds, yummy ice cream and just walking the Nashville streets. I haven’t had a session on these sidewalks since I left my East Nashville studio years ago, it was so fun to see the new additions and the things that have stayed the same! I love their personalities at this age, still mamas babies but so close to finding themselves as teenagers, finding out more of who they are without mom & dad. We had a blast and as always I am just honored, SO VERY honored to be a teeny tiny part of their lives. Much love friends.

nashville family photographer | beautiful beach family

the beach. I mean who doesn’t love the beach? especially when you are surrounded by your crazy awesome family.

For many years our family has traveled to the 30A area and it is for sure some of mine and my kids favorite memories with my parents and siblings. Its just a time to not worry about anything except each other and having fun and resting!! I am so blessed to be able to work there as well. I love that so many of my clients vacation in the same spot and we get to meet up in everyones happy place!! This family was no different, we met at their beach home in Rosemary Beach and had lots of fun capturing their beautiful smiles and laughs! Of course we ended the session and evening down on the sand playing around a little πŸ™‚

This was a special trip for them as their parents are retiring and starting a new chapter, love love love family!!


Speaking of beach….. Im heading back down next week, Sept 12-17th & have one more opening, if you want to grab it let me know. Trust me…. you do πŸ™‚

We are so excited about our new BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS! This 20 minute in studio session is perfect for remembering this special time, remember those adorable curls and little fingers, the way they laugh and how excited they were to turn THREE or SIX or EIGHT or EIGHTEEN!! Whatever age, Β we want to celebrate with them!! We will provide a perfectly sized cake just for one and some fun decor, all you have to do is show up!

These sessions will only be available certain days of the week so just give us a call to schedule and we will take it from there. The cost is $125 and you will have special collections to chose from after that!!

We of course will offer this to one year olds but please know this isn’t a cake smash session, so much more than that!!


meet Annie. we love our sweet Annie around here. we were so happy to help her celebrate turning 6! her sweet mama was so happy because she didn’t get any good pictures at her party and wanted to remember this perfect time. Β the silver cup with flowers is a tradition her mom does each year, how precious is that!!
