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

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.

I love this family.  This momma contacted me early on in her pregnancy and said I want YOU to photograph my baby and she has always shown me time and again she is willing to make it work.  Whether it’s the over an hour drive with a babe in the car, being in Nashville before 8:00 because I would like to attend a field trip with my oldest,  or rescheduling due to weather; she always makes it a point to make it work.  I love that my clients are willing to make it work for me-that’s the biggest compliment!

Thanks Christina, you know I love y’all! I hope you like your small preview!

One of my 2014 goals is to challenge my photography skills.  Because EVERY newborn is different, posing a newborn is for sure a huge challenge but I also want to push myself in other areas and one way is shooting  more in home lifestyle sessions.  It all started by shooting my newborn niece in their home last year. I was pleasantly surprised how laid back and easy the session was and it was a refreshing change.  While posing is one of my favorites, this is a great option and something I want to push myself to try.

That leads me to baby Vivian:

I went to Tara and Ben’s home last week on an absolutely gorgeous sunny morning in Nashville.  Tara and I hung out for quiet a long time just chatting  while I snapped away. Tara especially loves her sweet fur babies and wanted to capture some of the pups with the baby and I am in LOVE with the images.  I can only imagine how much Vivi will love these images as she grows older.

Tara and Ben, thanks for inviting me in your home and letting me capture this sweet sweet time in your lives.  Vivi is perfect and you both are amazing parents~Congrats!

Molly and I were college roommates.  There are so many good (and not so good moments) we have shared that we could write a book about all the experiences.  One life changing experiences that happened while Molly and I lived together was we lost our amazingly funny, kind, and oh so young friend Misty to cancer when we were 22.  It is a miracle we are still friends because that was the HARDEST time of my life up to that point (and I am sure Molly would say the same). Our friendship has for sure had its ups and downs but luckily we stuck it through and I’m thankful for that!

Molly and I don’t live in the same city but we try to get together whenever we can. When she asked me to photograph her and the boys I was so excited!  Photographing her boys was pretty much like photographing mine…….lots of wrestling!  Its really fantastic to see her with them and I really enjoyed our short little session.  They are adorable!

Molly~Thanks so for letting me capture you and the boys.  I am thankful for our little journey we have traveled.

Love, Wen.

*Thought I would share a picture of us from college first.  Misty is first, then Molly, me, and our friend Kelly.  We were SAE little sisters and this was for their 70s party.  We always went big wherever we went!
