baby isabella [7 days new] | nashville franklin newborn studio family photographer

The greatest plans can be thwarted by the littlest of beings.  Meet baby Isabella.  She was not content to arrive on her scheduled date, keeping to her original session appointment in mid-October.  She plowed into the world 3 weeks early and is busy charming the pants off of everyone she meets.  And she’s just a mere 7 days old.  I’m so happy we were able to squeeze her in one day before my 10 day fall break!  enjoy this sneak peek of this little one and her beautiful family.

summer in style | Family Mini Outdoor Summer Session Photography

Warm nights, lightning bugs and seersucker.  Just a few things to love about Summer in the South.  The S family joined me for a mini session recently for some new family images.  Their little guy was a typical 2 year old and I know Mom might have wondered what exactly she would find in her gallery as our session ended. I know that she was super excited to see these images.  Nothing to worry about at all!  As I was packing up their order tonight and looking at the images I wanted to be sure to share this awesome evening with you, too!

annual back to school mini sessions august 9 | custom school photography franklin brentwood nashville

It is nearly back to school time here in middle Tennessee!  New clothes, new classrooms, new teachers and school pictures.  (one of these things is not like the others…)  While school pictures are a rite of passage in our culture, they aren’t always the best picture of your child.  Until now.  Instead of having your child stand in a line, get a quick snap with spaghetti on their face and their hair all out of place while someone says “Say cheese!” for 3 seconds and then a fake background is photoshopped in, how about this year getting some awesome pictures of your kiddo that show his or her personality?!  You can!  Book a mini session at the studio for Saturday, August 9.

These were a big hit last year.  You definitely don’t want to miss out!  All ages (2 and up, please) are welcome!

summer fun [catching up] | Nashville Franklin Child Family Outdoor Studio Photography

Is Summer flying by for you?  I cannot believe we have just 2.5 weeks until school starts.  What a fun Summer we have been having.  I hope that your Summer has included fun, travel and family time!

Lots of great folks have stopped by to hang out with me this Summer.  Here’s a quick sampling of some of the sessions I’ve been working on recently in between pool and travel time!

Grandma Nancy and her sweet granddaughter, Samantha:  Samantha is a cancer survivor and has had other health obstacles to overcome.  While visiting her Grandma this Summer, they asked for a studio session to capture them together.  I was honored to do so!

These sweet boys were also visiting Grandma this Summer and we met up one morning for some fun near the studio.  They were spunky and well behaved, a great combination!

I have had 4 newborns in the last month, and I’m sure I’ll be sharing more from their sessions soon, but here’s a little sneak from each of those yummy sessions!

And last, but certainly not least, I captured a family that has recently gone from 5 to 7, in all of their beauty, with love outpouring.

I’m catching up on all orders and galleries now after a wonderful, relaxing week at the beach.  And squeezing out the last possible bits of Summer fun with the family before I send both of my boys to school full time for the first time ever.  SNIFF!!!

I’ll leave with a personal favorite from the trip last week as my parting shot.  More beach images to come very soon.  Happy Summer!

lemonade stand sunday studio


Summer is heating up!  This Summer the girls at CLICK studio, the awesome studio co-op that I am a part of, decided to hold an itty bitty themed mini session.  We borrowed the most adorable lemonade stand ever and announced our mini sessions to our clients and to those passing by the studio, located in Lenox Village.  It was fun to spend the morning with some adorable little ones, drink a little lemonade and take a break from the heat!

I am so excited to announce that we will have one final date, TOMORROW, Sunday, June 29, from 1p to 3p for those of you that missed the weekday opportunity.  No appointment is needed, so come on down in summer fare or throw the kids in their bathing suits, whatever their pleasure!  Have some fun with our adorable lemonade stand!  This will be our final event date.   Digital files are prepaid at $20 cash or check.

Come join the fun!!!  No appointment needed!  CLICK Studio, 6977 Sunnywood Drive, Nashville 37211.
