Friday Favorite | Nashville Family Photographer

Happy Friday everyone! We’re working hard to finish tons of stuff over here and looking forward to a long weekend 🙂

I just wanted to share a little peek at this recent family session with my friend Emily and her adorable family. Emily and I met our freshman year at the University of Tennessee (GO VOLS!) and she is honestly one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met. I have some really great memories of dorm room girls nights with her. It was such an honor to take pictures of this cute family. I mean…how adorable is little Gus? 🙂 I haven’t seen her in a while and when I asked what they had been up to they answered that Gus is pretty much their life. And I totally get that. There is just something so special about the first year of being a family with your husband and child. We make no appologies for the time we’ve spent ‘hibernating’ in our home with little Davis and I think Emily & Jameson understand 🙂 More to come from this session… we promise!

Hope everyone has a fun and safe Labor Day!

Friday Favorite | Caroline & Tee’s Nashville Wedding

Hello friends & happy Friday! 🙂 How in the world are we already to the end of August?! This summer has flown by- especially with all these fun weddings we’ve been shooting! Seriously, we’ve hit the jackpot this year with our couples and have had so much fun with the new friends we’ve made. Caroline & Tee are seriously awesome. We really enjoyed getting to know these two & absolutely loved how laid back and fun they are. Other people obviously love them too seeing how they had 12 people each in their wedding party! Their reception… it was honestly all I could do to not grab a drink and start dancing. Everyone was on the dance floor…and I mean everyone. We had a hard time getting out there to even take pictures so we jumped up on the stage to get some shots & thats when I took my favorite groom shot of all time. You’ll know it when you see it 😉

Some details…

Their ceremony was at the gorgeous West End United Methodist Church in downtown Nashville

The reception was at The Loveless Barn. (LOVE this place)

Cake: Dessert Designs

Flowers: The Enchanted Florist

Band: Atl Groove Factory (AHmazing!)

Thank you so much to Caroline, Tee and their family and friends for welcoming us and allowing us to be a part of such a fun day! We hope you love this sneak peek at your pictures!!

xo,

Happy Friday friends! Wooo hoooo a weekend is here where we can do anything we want. I love weekends like this 🙂

We have a problem at our house. We have SO many pictures of our child and of our family that it’s honestly overwhelming. I’m paralyzed by indecision over here. I mean, there are so many great pictures that need to be displayed and it’s just impossible to pick our favorites. I would plaster our walls with pictures if that wasn’t weird. We’re still figuring out the best way for us to document our own lives and how we want to display our favorite pictures. I’m finally realizing the solution may be a bunch of frames on our walls and around the house that we can quickly and easily switch out pictures. We also need a place where we can document time as it passes with a journaling aspect to it so we can document our feelings as well. I’m pretty sure now that the solution to that will be a Project Life album. We’re headed out later today to check them out and see if it’s the solution for us! We’ll keep you posted 🙂

But for now… we have these pictures from one of our recent family days. It’s no secret that we love Arrington Vineyards. It’s like a staycation for us. And it’s actually extremely family friendly which is awesome. Remember our last blog post about taking Davis here? Oh my goodness he’s a teeny tiny little 5 month old. Those are pictures I’ll cherish forever! Well, we went again a few weekends ago on a Sunday afternoon. I honestly wasn’t feeling good at all but was so determined to have a family day and take a few pictures. We ended up getting a few good ones but this last one takes the cake.

I love this picture so much 🙂

Are we bad parents because I seriously love this picture? I think it’s hilarious. 🙂 He was over our picture taking and ready to go home. We called it a day after this shot 😉

Happy Friday friends! Today we’re excited to share family pictures of the adorable Perkins family. How precious is little Penelope?! I just love that name too! It was a very hot day but they were total troopers. It is truly such an honor to capture these moments for families. The time when they are this little goes by SO quickly and sometimes its hard to remember what it was like but they’ll have all of these pictures to remember this special time. It makes me happy 🙂

I can’t believe it’s already August! Believe it or not but it’s time to start booking your Fall family pictures right now! September & October book up quickly!

Check out some of our favorites from this adorable family session at Centennial Park:

We finally got to use our adorable high chair! 🙂
