Garrett hasn’t yet spent much time outside. So the wonder on his face was absolutely amazing. The fall leaves and the weather were so beautiful. I really LOVE this family. They are warm and sweet and loving. They truly embrace their togetherness. They do not take life for granted.
Here is Garrett’s 6 Month Mini Film:
Baby Grayson – he’s so funny. and he thinks everything is hilarious. He of course, had to eat during his session, or he surely would have melted away. We had such fun capturing his milestone session. Looking back on his first year, which has one session left, I just adore all the films and photos capturing him as he grew and changed. I love making his momma cry every session, with powerful films.
Grayson’s 9 Month Film:
When I think of Lucy, the word sweet comes to mind. She’s just rolly and sweet. A snuggler for sure. She and her sister are developing their bond and you can see, its so strong already. It will be amazing for them to go back and watch the film and see the images of the beginning of their sweet sisterhood.
Lucy’s 6 Month Film:
Ashton turned one. Im so sad, because I just ADORE this family. Im sure I will see them each year, but still….. not seeing them every 3 months will be sad. Ashton is adorable as ever. He really performed for his photos and film this session. We had such fun and his personality really came through! The weather was perfect. It truly was one of those perfect days and sessions. The sunset was outstanding. The water was amazing to look at. It was just a very peaceful session. A great way to end a great year of baby milestones!
Christine & Jason: It has been a HUGE honor to capture both of your children during their first year. I adore your family and look forward to future sessions. xoxo
Ashton’s 12 Month Mini Film:
Lealand is one. Even as the photographer, I cannot believe how fast the first year goes. You just NEVER ever get it back. Even if its a really hard year, its a very important year that has the most dependence. The baby moments are so far and few between. They only snuggle for such a short time. They grow up and leave. I want Moms to remember their personality that first year, how they loved to eat dirt and hated touching grass. How they made this certain face when they were displeased.
Lealand has a very big voice and lots of opinions, and she in only ONE y’all. ONE. 13 year old Lealand should be interesting. I had fun capturing this time and cant wait to watch her grow into a spunky willful lady!
Bennett is always such joy to photograph. He is ONE and walking and running! I was definitely chasing him! HA! I love this stage of partial independence and still many moments of snuggles and nursing. You just never get this back. Its such a short time in life! This family is such joy and so happy. I love capturing their intense love for B. Truly, an honor.
Bennett’s one year film:
Miles loved the water at the creek, for his 6 month session. It was really beautiful. We had the most amazing sunset. The warm tones and pink hues of this session truly make me happy. Miles was a little tired for his session, but we managed to keep him happy! I love his sweet angelic face, and those baby blue eyes!
Kennedy’s first year is flying by y’all! Seems like just yesterday I was photographing her Momma’s Maternity Session. It was by far one of my favorite maternity shoots. We have photographed Kennedy Every 3 months since birth and each and every session has been equally glorious. However, it was nice to finally get outside for her photos. At the beginning of the session, something happened that, surprisingly, has never happened at a session! We were walking to our first starting place, getting ready to start with Family Photos. When the baby pooped all over momma! It was SUCH a mess, and no, she did not have a back up outfit! But my favorite part was how she rolled with it. She cleaned it with some baby wipes and waited for it to dry, photographing Kennedy during this time. It dried in no time, thanks to the summer heat 😉 and we were strategic with posing! I love when my clients roll with the punches, because 9 times out of 10, something will happen when it comes to photographing babies. Its just the way it is! But how we respond makes all the difference!
Here is Kennedy’s sweet film:
Magnolia, and those CURLS. Man she tugs at my heart strings! We had a blast capturing her, mostly nursing for her session. She is so full of spunk and joy! She has the most adorable round face. and blue eyes. Our weather was spectacular for Nashville in August! Better yet, her momma has a boutique in Magnolia’s name. it’s called Magnolia Jaymes
I try to do very little posing during sessions. I love shooting more natural lifestyle portraiture or even full on documentary. I love capturing raw unposed emotions. and making people cry 🙂
Baby Enzo was DARLING for his milestone session. He was intrigued and so happy to be outdoors. I loved working with him and his sweet parents. The weather was perfect. We had a blast playing games and capturing Enzo. Nashville has had the most amazing summer. And I have enjoyed ALL the baby sessions! Im looking forward to the coming months and seeing how what is in my head comes out through my work. I plan to really change things up!
