Day in the Life session with the East family

Happy Good Friday everyone! ๐Ÿ™‚ We’re excited for the Easter weekend but wishing the weather was going to be nicer!

We are so proud to share a recent Day in the Life session we did with the East Family today ๐Ÿ™‚ This type of session is is near and dear our hearts and now that we have sweet little Davis in our lives we really see the importance of these pictures even more. As Davis nears his 1st birthday I find myself looking back on the past year and it is a total whirlwind. How in the world did this go by so quickly!? I remember this time last year feeling so ready for him to arrive and then all of a sudden he was here and he completely changed our lives.

It goes by so fast.

Everyone says it- don’t blink because it goes by so fast. And I truly didn’t understand that until we had a baby of our own. They are only tiny for so long and they change so quickly. All of these moments with him as a little one, watching him learn and discover things each day- it’s so important to capture this!

We were thrilled when the East family wanted to do a Day in the Life session with us. We did Avery’s 1st birthday pictures last year and had such a great time. She’s hilarious and not afraid of anything ๐Ÿ™‚ I loved getting to hang out with this family again and just let Miss Avery do her thing.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with Day in the Life Photography, here’s a little info!

What are Day in the Life sessions like?

These sessions are perfect for a family with small children. You’ve done the typical family session and you’re looking for something different. The unposed, playing with your children kind of pictures (although we do a lotย of this in our regular family sessions) at your house with no rules. Children are encouraged to just play and be themselves and parents are encouraged to relax and just have fun with your kids! We stay in the background as much as possible and just capture your family as you are. No ironing the kids clothes, no bribing the kids to ‘smile at the camera’. These sessions typically take about 2-3 hours. We plan them around playtime, lunchtime/dinnertime and we focus on capturing your day to day life as a family. Reading stories, playing outside, eating together, bedtime & bathtime. All of those moments make up your real life and we believe they deserve to be captured. These sessions make perfect pictures for a gorgeous album of your family. Years down the road when the kids are off to school and you’re remembering the sweet time you had with them as babies, you will not regret investing in these pictures.

Friday Favorite | Our happy little boy

Happy Friday everyone! We’re busy working on some really fun sessions we’ve done recently. We’re really excited to share pictures from a recent Day in the Life Session with the East Family next week! You might remember them from Avery’s 1st Birthday pictures we did last year. She is so precious and I had such a great time with this family documenting a day in the life of little Miss Avery ๐Ÿ™‚

In other news, we had not one but 2 birthday parties for one year olds last weekend! And tomorrow we’re headed to another! We’ll be celebrating little Collier’s 1st birthday tomorrow with our friends Adrianne & Chris. Can’t believe our boys are so big!!!

I am SO in love with this little boy. He totally cracks me up. We took him to these birthday parties last weekend wearing this hat and he actually kept it on! And then the sunglasses…. I can’t even handle the cuteness. People ask us all the time ‘Is he always this happy?’ and I’m grateful to say ‘Yes.’ ๐Ÿ™‚ I mean, don’t get me wrong– he can be a total crying, teething mess (which he was this day) but in general, he’s a very happy little boy. I just love these pictures Dusty got of us.

We can’t wait any longer to share this farm engagement session with you! You’ve seen our friends Tyler & Madison on the blog before. Remember when he proposed on stage?! Well, Tyler is busy touring the country with Sarah Darling at the moment (man, we have talented friends!) so we had to very quickly schedule their engagement session before it gets too crazy for all of us.

Friday Favorite | Franklin Family Session

Happy Friday everyone!! We’re so excited about a gorgeous weekend and two sessions tomorrow. Spring is almost here. I can feel it!

We’re excited to share these family pictures we did in Franklin for the Overbay Family! Parker is adorable and oh so hilarious just like his parents. We went to UT with Lindsey & Matt and have always loved them. It was an honor to take these for you guys!

We met up at their house and just let Parker play. Sometimes the best pictures are when you allow kids to just do their thing. ๐Ÿ™‚
