As a Nashville children’s photographer, I have the pleasure of meeting many wonderful families. I was working on some new Brentwood family portraits the other day and it reminded me of this precious family.
People often ask when my favorite time for portraits is, the perfect time of year, the perfect time of day, the perfect weather… this is it. A cool(er) summer evening, setting sun… pure magic. The Black-eyed Susans are in full bloom around middle Tennessee right now, which might be what brought back this sweet session to my memory. Or maybe it was the glowing faces or brothers and sisters that truly adore each other. Either way, it’s fun to have these pictures to look back on and reminisce.

As a photographer specializing in children’s portraits in Nashville, TN, I hear lots of questions from parents. Often the top questions are about what to wear or the perfect location. But another question pops up every so often as well. While capturing all of the memories and your growing child, wall space can run slim. Do you really want to take down that treasured portrait of your once toddler with his mischievous grin? Isn’t that the whole point of wall art, to continue to enjoy it for years to come? I sure think so…
But you don’t want to miss this toothless grin of your now seven year old… This is why I think options like the leather folio and custom albums are so important. Yes, wall portrait that you can walk by everyday matter. Your children can walk by them everyday and see their own faces hung in honor and know that they are important and valued. But then you can also take out a family album or folio case and flip through those images as well.
One of my favorite things to pair with a leather folio is a simple easel. Sitting on a shelf or sideboard, an easel that compliments your home’s style can be an ever changing rotation of your favorite pictures.

Being a Nashville children’s photographer is never dull! This was one of those typical Nashville summer days, when everything is clouds and sunshine, until suddenly it isn’t. Just as we were getting started with our session, the clouds rolled in and the sky turned dark. These precious kids weren’t phased though. They were sweet and silly and playful right up to the moment the first rain drop fell. Our session was cut short, and in situations like this, we will reschedule the remainder of their session. But I am so glad that we went ahead with the session and used the time we had. If we had cancelled from the beginning, we might have missed this darling image.

This is it folks. This is what it is all about. Classic child portraits. Of all of our precious treasures and amazing accomplishments, I think most of us would agree that our children are the greatest. These little smiles and dimples, the tiny baby teeth not yet replaced by toothless grins, the wrinkles in their noses when they laugh. So, so many little details of their childhood that we want to preserve and remember forever…
These sweet sisters had an amazing sunset session this summer at a park located about 45 minutes outside of Nashville, in Thompsons Station, TN. The park and surrounding areas were a prime location for these portraits. The wildflowers and skyline glowing pink and purple added to the beauty of the evening. A little shyness quickly melted into giggles and playfulness. Both of which are reflected in this gallery. Both equally important in telling the story.
When working with siblings, I always take care to capture a few images together as well as a few images individually. They, and their parents, will want to remember their childhood bond. But they also display their unique personalities as well. Sisters can be (and usually are!) so very different.

Amongst all of the amazing photographers around Nashville, you may wonder which one is best for you and your family. There are several things to consider when choosing the right photographer. One thing you will want to check out is what kind of products they offer for your portraits.
One question to ask yourself is, “How do I want to display my portraits in my home?” Do you prefer a large wall portrait that you can walk by and see everyday? Smaller prints to decorate shelves or your desk? An album that captures every detail? A luxurious, leather folio with matted prints? Knowing your own preferences will help you choose a photographer that offers just what you need.
One of my own favorites is a fine art standout print. These gorgeous pieces of art are printed on archival, fine art paper. With a deckled or straight edge, these prints are mounted with coordinating mattes and a solid wood frame. The options for color and texture in a fine art print are infinite. Each one is uniquely created to magnify the beauty of the print, while complimenting the style of your home. They are a perfect duet of craft and design.
Fine Art Print, in the room in which will be displayed. You can see how the colors all come together to create a piece of art that works perfectly in the home decor. This particular room was based on french country design elements. By thinking about the end product even prior to the session, we were able to plan every detail to work together. The colors in the child’s dress matched both the colors in the wildflowers as well as the colors in the room. We were then able to pull those colors out into the mattes and the frame choice to accentuate the desired look. In the end, we have a perfectly unique and original work of art for the home.
Love! It’s at the heart of every portrait. The feelings and sentiment that you have for your children or grandchildren. This isn’t just another art print, it’s a timeless capture of someone you hold very dear.
The design process behind your wall art takes many things into account. The style of your home decor, your own personal style and preferences, the personality of the child, the emotion you want to create in the image, and so much more!
