Knox, 2 years: Nashville Photographer

Knox is a typical 2 year -old.  
Our session went something like this today: 
play, pout, laugh, drop-dead face, run, fall down, start all over again. 
Ba ha ha ha!

He's still the cutest kiddo and I think he's looking like his mommy! Happy Birthday, kiddo!

Crew Bennett, 7 days: Nashville Newborn Photographer

Crew's parents gave me all kinds of warnings about this guy: he breaks out of swaddles, he doesn't sleep a lot, etc... I believe he just wanted to prove them wrong. He was the perfect little guy for me this morning and smiled all through his session. I think we're going to be best buds throughout his first year!

Dobry, 5/6 months: Nashville Baby Photographer

Dobry giggled his way through his session this morning! He was just precious and I even told his parents to leave him with me and go get lunch. Ha ha. I could have played with him all day. He has the best little laugh!

Grant, 1 year: Nashville Baby Photographer

 Grant finished up his first year with me today and kept reaching his arms out for me to hold him. I love this kid! He has always been so happy and this morning was no exception. He didn't take the first bite of his smash cake, but he enjoyed playing in it for a few minutes. Happy Birthday, sweet Grant!

Otis, 7 days: Nashville Newborn Photographer {Middle TN Newborn Photographer}

Otis is a perfect little gentleman. He didn't pee on me until the last set (which I was very thankful for) and even gave me a couple of sweet, sleepy grins. I loved snuggling this cutie and meeting his adorable mommy & daddy this morning. Welcome to the world, handsome.

Ruby Mae, 6 days: Nashville Newborn Photographer {Middle TN Newborn Photographer}

I was so excited to see Ruby and her family again today. I knew her big sisters were going to be great after I witnessed their sweetness last week at her birth session. They both adore their baby sister! Ruby is one lucky baby girl with all the love that surrounds her.

Hays Matthew, 10 days: Nashville Newborn Photographer {Middle TN Newborn Photographer}

Hays started his session out with the biggest grin this morning, then decided to stay awake for a bit. I could not get over his gorgeous locks and those pouty lips! He is such a pretty little man and I'm excited to get to know his personality over the next year. Welcome to the world, sweet boy!

Ruby Mae, A Birth Story: Nashville Birth Photographer {Middle TN Birth Photographer}

Ruby Mae

I got the call from Kate late Thursday night that she was headed to the hospital. Things progressed very quickly and I arrived about 12:30AM. 

There was no clock in the room and the time seemed to pass so quickly.

 About 30 minutes after I arrived, it was go-time! Kate kept looking at Andrew and saying she couldn't believe that this was happening. She couldn't believe they were about to have 3 daughters.

The room was so calm & quiet and after only a few pushes, a beautiful baby girl started crying before she was even fully born.

 She didn't have a name yet, but she was perfect.

Since baby girl was born in the middle of the night, I came back a few hours later to see capture Annabelle and Josie meeting their baby sister for the first time.

Kate announced to the girls that they finally decided on a name: Ruby Mae. The girls preferred Ellie (even though that was not one of the choices--ha ha)

{I love how you can see Annabelle's twin brother Max in Kate's necklace above. Such a beautiful way to include and remember him on this special day}

These girls were the absolute sweetest and it was so precious to witness their excitement over their new sister. 

And all four of Andrew and Kate's beautiful babies...

Kate and Andrew, Ruby's birth was such a beautiful experience. Thank you so much for trusting me to capture this day and be included in these moments. I can't wait to see you all again next week!
