Oh my sweet blog. It’s that time of year when I have a little bit of extra time to update the blog with recent images.
It’s no secret this is a neglected space since I haven’t blogged in almost a year (that’s pathetic on my part). Blogging is time consuming for me but 2016 was a wonderful year with wonderful sessions so it’s important I put that out there for potential clients to see.
I don’t consider myself great with words so I have decided I will just share a few things I remember from each session I blog.
Hazel || Newborn
*I love her name.
* She had the mot gorgeous creamy skin.
* Here hair was a beautiful strawberry blonde with the perfect swirl in the front.
* She was very sleepy like her older sister was for her newborn session.
* She gave me a few smiles, which is always icing on the cake.
*I will be shooting her first year and can’t wait to see how she has grown at her sitter session.
Until Next Time (hopefully not a year)

2015 was a whirlwind for me and my business. I shot more family and newborns than I ever have before. I met new families, spent more time with returning families, cuddled new life, photographed sweet dogs that were spending their last days here, gave out lots of tickles, photographed some amazing seniors that are preparing for college, helped announce the new life that is growing in mommies, and chased a lot of babies. In all this wonderful madness, I spent less time on social media sharing all these wonderful people and their images. I have decided to go back and share these sessions by months. I am working backwards and starting with December 2015. Here are my awesome clients for December. I hope you enjoy them!

Anniston Joy || Newborn
Goodness Anniston was so cute. She was so sleepy, had the yummiest rolls, and the best cheeks. Here are some of my favorites from her session.

Belle || 5 Years Old
I love this session of Belle for a lot of reasons. She’s five (such a milestone), she had just woken up from a nap when we got to the session and I had to work extra hard to make her like me (who isn’t a little grouchy when you wake up from a nap), I love the movement of her dress, how she played without fear, and let’s not forget she’s just so cute! It was a beautiful session.
Here are some of my favorites.

Mollie | 6 Days Old
Oh sweet Mollie! She was such a wonderful sleeper with beautiful hair and the cutest chubby cheeks you have ever seen.
She was my first newborn in my new studio and it could not have gone better. I feel so at home in the space and the light is so gorgeous it makes me so happy!
I hope you enjoy some of my favorites from her session.
Brandi, your girls are amazing. Thanks for trusting me and letting me capture this special time in your lives.
I hope you love them!

I can’t really not share this cutie pie!
This session was my first baby session in the studio and I am pretty sure my subject couldn’t have been any cuter.
Here are a few of my favorites from this sweet family.
Brittany, Nick, and Henry I hope you love your images and I can’t wait to see you all in a few months!

This is a super sized blog. I have been shooting this family for about 4 years now (I think). It is so much fun especially with the little ones growing and multiplying.
The icing on the cake is after the session I always get canned pickles and squash. YUM!
Here are a few (ok, a lot) of my favorites from the session.

“When is your next mini session”? I wish I had a dollar for every time someone asked me this. I would be rich!
What people don’t know when they ask me this is I offer a mini session package ALL YEAR! It is half the session time, half the images, one outfit, and some of my favorite sessions for families.
To answer some of your questions, here is some info on whether or not a mini session is good for you and your family:
Your little one(s) can sit unassisted.
You are perfectly fine with one outfit.
Your child/children aren’t overly hard to warm up to strangers.
Your child/children get “antsy” after about 30 minutes.
You don’t need a thousand pictures like the full session offers (really not a thousand but you know what I mean).
You don’t mind shooting in Wilson or Davidson counties.
Does a mini session sound like you? If so, email me for mini session information at firstname.lastname@example.org
Here is a recent mini session I shot that I ABSOLUTELY LOVED! These little boys are so adorable, we had the best time, and mom was over the moon with her images (she told me so, which is always SO NICE to hear)!
Here ya go Friends!

I’m back! I wanted to feature a session that I consider a “front porch” session of sorts.
A lot of times clients put too much pressure on themselves trying to pick the perfect setting for a session (not to mention matching everyone). It’s EXHAUSTING, I know!
I always tell my clients (jokingly) I would shoot them on the side of the road (maybe I have done this). I am really more about the connection with their family than the background.
Don’t get me wrong, a golden field with sunset light is my absolute favorite (for me). I personally love winter colors (or lack of) more than spring flowers and the overly green (gasp).
Everyone is different and that’s ok! Your session should be based on your style and what you and your family is comfortable with. If you aren’t sure of your style, no problem.
We will figure it out!
That gets me to my next session I want to share.
My sweet friend Vivi has had all of her first year sessions at her home on the front steps and in her room (which lucky for her has beautiful light). I love every session I do of her.
Vivi is very relaxed and happy during her session. I can’t help but think that one day sweet Viv will look back so fondly at the images of her in her home. It makes me happy. These image will last her a lifetime!
Tomorrow I am going to talk about mini sessions.
Until next time. here are a few of my favorites from Viv’s last session with her parents and pups.
