I just did a big shoot documenting my girl starting school. Kindergarten. 
So, we kept it low key for her 6 year session.

She's wise beyond her years.






She is silly. She is hilarious. She is full of energy.

She is LOUD.

I had the conversation recently that photos can be so deceiving and let me just tell you that this is one of those times. I arranged for us to have the zoo carousel all to ourselves for a bit. Averie was so excited and I was too. However, I probably should not have set it up right after she got out of school. She was tired. She fell asleep in the car on the way there and woke up a total turd. It was not what either of us had in mind at all, but toward the end we started having some laughs and she got to the ride the carousel with no one else around. That was pretty cool...




Oh, how I love her giggle.



The universe has big things in store for this girl.





Averie Grace, you are ridiculously awesome. I can't believe I have only known you for six years, yet I can't believe how fast that time has flown. As much as I want to keep you little, I love watching you grow up. I love the sparkle and mischief in your eyes. I love every single thing about you. 
Happy Birthday baby girl.

Griffin, 3 months: Nashville Baby Photographer

Griffin napped for half of his session and we still got the cutest images. He is such a happy little guy, but he was not a fan of laying on the cold floor. Who could blame him?!? And does it get any more adorable than a naked baby butt? I think not.







Penelope, 6 months: Nashville Baby Photographer


Penelope is her Daddy's clone! She loves to eat her toes and is soooo close to being an awesome sitter. Those big brown eyes are going to get her anything she wants!

Jade Autumn, 7 days: Nashville Newborn Photographer {Middle TN Newborn Photographer}

Jade decided to pee on me at the very beginning of her session...
While I was sitting...
She was in my lap...
So, I looked like I had peed myself for the rest of her session.

Good thing she was perfect the rest of the time. ;)


Isn't she delicious??  









MaryBlaire, 1 year: Nashville Baby Photographer

I have been photographing this clan since Greer was a tiny guy and this was the final baby session for this family. *tear* I've been seeing them for so often for SO long that it's going to be so strange not seeing them every 3 months. We got the cutest Christmas shots of this clan today, but I can't ruin their cards by posting. :)

Happy belated birthday to Miss MaryBlaire!! 






Avery, 2 year: Lynchburg, TN Photographer {Nashville Farm Photographer}

At every session during Avery's first year I heard about the beautiful family farm that we were going to have to shoot at when she was a little older. I finally got a chance to see it yesterday and spend this girl's 2nd birthday with her. Let me just tell you that I could have easily shot there ALL day. It was absolutely gorgeous!! Avery showed me how she feeds her donkeys and we got to visit the cows as well. This girl just stole my heart all over again. We ended on top of one of their magical hills watching the sunset. So dreamy.

Happy Birthday, Miss Avery! 
SOOO great to see you again Amanda & Shawn! Thanks for having out at the farm.

Caroline Victoria, 11 days: Nashville Newborn Photographer

Caroline was showing off for her first photo shoot this morning. She was complete putty and didn't care what poses I put her in. The first shot is so special since Caroline's great grandfather made that rocking horse. Just love it! I can't wait to watch this girl grow.

The Sullivans: Nashville Baby Photographer


Once I year, I get to see the Sullivans and these kiddos have gotten so tall!! Their Little Red riding Hood and Big Bad Wolf costumes were great. I could have done the whole session with just that. Ha ha. So good to see you all!
