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!
Baby Stella is just beautiful! She is all smiles and sweetness. The light was so perfect this night. and her big brother gets the best sibling award! He was so good for his sibling photo. There may or may not have been organic gummies offered 😉
The weather was yet again, very mild for summer. We still end up sweating, but not quite drenched. HA. We have fun chatting and playing the whole time! Sessions are always fun!
Stella’s 6 Month Video/Film:
Ingram is ONE. I mean, they just grow so incredibly fast. The fussy days, the teething, and sleepless nights, just go by so fast. I love this time of year, when I have baby chicks at my house. Being able to use them for a few shoots is nice. He loved them and was very curious. I love watching babies analyze their surroundings, and take it all in.
Ingram’s baby video/film:
Baby Rowan is the 3rd boy of this family – and Ive photographed all 3! I love them all to pieces, they know me well “Miss Jennie” and they look forward to their session. I may or may not bribe them with organic Gummies 😉 But, they never complain about sessions!
They all loved the water, obviously! They were drenched by the end. But thats how I like my sessions: real and fun.
Here is Rowan’s 1 year film/video:
Henry Joel has been such a blessing and light for this sweet family. We enjoyed the weather on this beautiful Summer day in Tennessee and captured all of him! He has so much personality. That year went by so quickly. Mommies and Daddies just don’t get this sweet time back. They grow up and life simply changes. I truly believe in capturing moments, emotions, and connection (rather than props and things).
Here is Henry’s Video:
Baby Avalee spreads so much joy with just a smile! She’s pure sweetness. Nashville weather this summer has been aHHHmaaazing! We really haven’t had very hot sessions. Im quite nervous what fall will bring! This summer has had lots of cute baby sessions and gorgeous light. I wont wish the time away at all.
Here is her Film/Video:
Ashton came to his session tired and ready to go to bed! We were headed to the car to reschedule when he suddenly got very happy! Ended up having a fantastic session! You just never know with these little babies. Nashville weather has been amazing. Hardly any sweaty sessions 😉
I cant wait to see him at 1 year. He’s going to be walking Im sure! Maybe even running.
Ashton’s 9 Month Film:
Grayson has turned into the happiest baby. He laughs at his parents the entire day! Even with a bad ear infection, he was happy for his session (just a tad wobblier than normal). We have had the best summer for heat! It hasn’t been too hot and we have had such a blast. The light has been so gorgeous! I cant wait for his mommy to see these photos and the video!
