T, N, & R Announcement!

I’ve been having to keep lots of secrets for lots of people recently but I can FINALLY share the big news that the H family is growing by 1! Mama T is pregnant with Baby number 2 and told me when she was around 8 or so weeks I didn’t think I’d be able to keep it to myself… thankfully she also shared the big secret with some mutual friends so we could gossip about how excited we were about it!

It’s been forever since I’ve been able to do a gender reveal and somehow Mama T always manages to make things 10 times more glamourous. Between their incredibly coordinated outfits for Family photos and the amazing props she brought along with her I just basically had to show up and they did the rest of the work, I always feel very guilty working with them!

Capturing R’s first year was so amazing, I still have some of his Newborn Cake Smash photos in my portfolio today, I’m so honored they’ve stuck with me over the years and hope Baby number 2 likes me as much as R does!!! (Sometimes) I also hope they know that I’m going to be bullying my way into every part of her pregnancy now… maybe even the delivery room for Birth Photos… get ready T

B Mini Session

I started photography wanting to excessively working with professional models but I quickly dropped that narrow-mindedness and now 5 years later I work almost exclusively with children! It’s definitely been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made because working with kids is always a wild, unpredictable ride. The energy is definitely wasn’t on the youth, I feel like I always get a days worth of steps in working with kids and this little lady definitely gave me a run for my money! B and her Grandmother and Grandfather originally met me on a day a freak tsunami hit Nashville. The day started beautiful, got slightly overcast, and by the time we got to our session location it was pouring!!! It was also thundering very very loudly, enough to scare me, and even though we tried to wait it out, it just wasn’t going to happen. Despite all this madness going on little Miss B was amazingly friendly and open to meeting someone new and was so excited to take photos (though it didn’t happen that day). I actually kind of cheated by winning her over, it wasn’t my charming personality she like, but she loved looking at all my bows, trying on dresses, and singing Let it Go while spinning in said dresses. She was so very social and it was so sweet to see how crazy she was about her Grandparents, who were also the kindest most patient people. I kept telling them, this is Nashville weather, it’ll pass it 5 minutes… it didn’t pass. Though the made the long drive out to meet me they were super understanding and were completely understanding and willing to reschedule, despite them only being in town for a few days.

After having to reschedule two more times we finally managed to shoot on Easter morning and the weather couldn’t have been more perfect! Surprisingly there were also 100 other people out enjoying the nice weather, which kind of blew my mind because ya know… it was Easter Sunday. B, who had now had to wait 3 separate times for us to actually shoot, was a ball of energy and optimism for our photoshoot! She ran through the flowers probably a dozen times, picked several for her Grandmother and me, and once again spent the whole session twirling! Energy is wasted on the youth… I wish I got that excited about anything and had that much energy for… anything. She was the most perfect model and it was definetly worth the wait! It’s always so nice seeing children who are so well behaved, kind, and just absolutely LOVE the outdoors! She probably feel 5 times running through the field but just got right back up and kept on trucking! Her grandmother has told me that they plan on bringing her back to me at some point so I’m already planning on what fun and excited adventure we can all do together next time!

E Newborn Session

I have had a few people who I started my newborn photography journey with contact me this year expecting their second child and that’s seriously the best compliment! Being a family photographer and newborn photographer has been so rewarding and the fact that there are those who started with me, when I wasn’t so good, and have continued to put their trust in me has been amazing. It’s been wonderful having them grown with me… but this one took me by COMPLETE surprise! Though Mama L and I are friends on FB I have not seen one post from here for at least a year so I completely missed this pregnancy and birth! (Even though she’s posted about it, thanks FB algorithm)  
I was lucky enough that she contacted me pretty soon after though and just a few days later she brought the Handsome Baby E to me along with his Big Sister C! I was completely taken back by how big C had gotten, how well spoken and polite she was, and the fact that she'll be 4 this year (which is actually much better than I thought because I could have sworn she was 5 and I was wondering how so much time had passed)! I think I was just in denial at how much time had passed because it makes me think of how old I actually am! I can’t tell you how wonderful it was that she was VERY big on saying thank you/yes ma’am, which is such a huge relief because it seems like we’re all sadly falling away form that! All of you who move to the south need to adapt to our manners…
Sadly Papa R couldn't make it to this session but Mama L came looking like a super model with a full nights sleep. I remember she was the same after giving birth to C, she came in full makeup, hair done, and in her Sunday best, which I can't even manage with zero kids...
Enough of my rambling, these might be some of my favorite sibling photos ever, I can't tell you how many times I said 'Oh my God' or 'Awwwwwww' during this session. Mama L told me when they got to my home studio that he had a safari themed nursery and had brought him an adorable elephant outfit to be photographed in by sadly it was slightly too big… but that gave me the chance to bring out a newborn prop I haven’t used in years!!! Last time I used the Elephant hat/doll was probably almost 4 years ago now but it has been lying in wait for this exact moment and it was so worth it!!!!

E First Birthday

I used to pride myself on being able to write super descriptive blogs where I spilled every detail of my shoot and how they came to be but I think with age I’ve lost that ability (6 months makes a big difference guys!!!!) So I’m going to attempt to bring blogs back, and bring them back with a vengeance! Don’t go back and READ prior blogs, you can look… that way I won’t be judged off previous work

ANYWAYS!!! This session was seriously one to write home about and as much as I would like to take credit I literally have to thank this beautiful little ladies Mama for making it all happen! Mama B and I became friends about the time she found out the gender of this sweet little lady. We did her gender reveal together, she dropped off some nude cupcakes for a stylized shoot I was doing, and the rest is history! I’ve had the privilege of getting to experience so many special moments in their lives with them and the chance to watch her two children grow!!! She’s a wonderful friend and a very very talented artist and baker (Two Peas and Sweets Bakery)

Okay, back to the blog, I’m getting ahead of myself. This little ladies first birthday session was planned before she was born. Mama is basically a gypsy and has lived everywhere but her roots are in Arizona (don’t kill me if I get your families history wrong B, I’m not a stalker) and her Grand….mother used to have an alpaca farm (that sounds right). Her uncle even makes cactus art!!! Definitely a desert rat. When E was born she even had an extra special Aplaca/cactus swaddle!

When it came time to planning her First Birthday photoshoot Mama B somehow found an Alpaca farm, which was only about twenty minutes from Blakes house, go figure, and the women that owned it was kind enough to let us shoot there! We ended up getting lost along the way and managed to do this shoot in a record twenty minutes, which was probably for the best otherwise we would have stayed there all day. Baby E literally had zero interest in the Alpacas though and was more concerned with what they were eating and picking up as much mud as she could between her toes. The Alpacas literally had zero interest in her either and were more concerned about why this small creature was trying to shove their pellets into her mouth.

Again, this shoot was definitely like a fairytale and over the years we’re somehow going to have to one up this session. We’re already trying to figure out how we’re going to get an elephant for her 16th birthday

I always aim to make each session their most favorite of all the ones we’ve done and I always go into a session feeling slightly nervous on how I’m going to make this shoot different… Now… I feel like I’m always going to have to live up to this session!!!!

Baby F 6 Month Session

I’ve spoken before about all the beautiful mothers you see on Instagram that are just big faker dakers and make you feel terrible about yourself… I hate to break it to you but… they exist. Mama C is one of those well dressed, fit, and pretty Moms that make you question your choices in life and if she truly did give birth just seven or eight months ago (don’t hate me if that’s wrong C). Besides just being drop dead gorgeous, she’s also such a pleasure to be around! It’s a shame I didn’t know her when she lived in Nashville!

The beautiful Ms. F is such a ham and is ALWAYS so happy, even when we ran into nap time, and always manages to break out in a toothy grin (even though she’s only got two teeth)! She is a true Southern Baby with her huge bows and vivid floral patterns and gave me soooo many great images that have already made their way into my online galleries!

S Family Session

I’d like to say this is the last session I have to share from last year buttt… I probably have two dozen more to share... Baby steps guys!!! Speaking of baby steps, the last time I saw this little lady and her beautiful Mama Baby A couldn’t even sit up on her own and now she’s running amok and I could barely keep up with her!

This lovely family used to be Nashville natives but now they live out of state so I’m always thrilled when Mama C asks me to shoot her adorable little family! This time we had the benefit of Papa actually being in town at the same time so I think I highjacked this family session and turned it into a couple session (don’t worry, we didn’t forget A but I think Mama and Papa deserve to be showed off just as much)

A & A Engagement

Another engagement session from last year, which is one I can’t believe I didn’t share earlier!!!! These two sadly have an insanely hectic schedule because we got along so well and I feel like we could all be great friends!!! I felt like I’ve known them for years, there was never an awkward moment during our session, we laughed the whole time, and if the sun wasn’t going down we would have probably stayed outside much, much, much longer… also, did I mention these two ROCKED their session!

We actually probably would have shot more If we didn’t spend about 15 minutes contemplating if the vulture at our second location were simply picking from the trash can or if there was a dead body by the water.

They were only interested in the trash can

I can’t wait to look shoot these guys wedding this year, but it’ll create a new challenge for me because I feel like I told them every joke in my arsenal… time to get some new material

K & J Engagement

I see I originally started this blog in November and it just so happens these guys wedding as at the end of this month, so now seems a better time than ever to share their blog!!!

It isn’t often I get to work with ‘super models’, but when I do I make them stay out in the cold for two hours. Was it cold out? It was November so it’s hit or miss on that one… This shoot was so long ago I don’t even remember anymore. Anywho! The beautiful K & handsome J were absolutely amazing to work and if we weren’t trespassing at the time I would have probably kept them out there all evening! Looking back at these photos now makes me even more excited to shoot their wedding!

R Maternity Session

It looks like 2019 is going to be the year of the Babe (our favorite year) at the CMP studio!!!! Though we’ve started the year out by not blogging anything, we’re very excited to share our first (blogged) Baby bump and our first, but hopefully not last, snow day photo shoot!

You would never believe it by looking at it but these sessions were literally done only one day apart from one another! It started snowing about 5am and I was texting R repeatedly at about 6am, telling her to wake up and get ready! Our original session wasn’t until the following day but we had both talked about wanting some snow photos and in Nashville you have to take it when you can get it! I’m sure she hated me in that moment and for sure hated me even more when we went out into single digit weather but it was sooooo worth it! Despite being frozen the whole time Mama R somehow managed to look like a professional model our whole session and if it was slightly warmer or the wind wasn’t blowing so hard I probably would have tried to keep her out there much longer then I did!

Annnnnnnnnnd this is the day after, about 20 degrees warmer, same location! It was still pretty fridgid out, especially when the wind blew but we couldn’t complain because it no way did it compare to the day before! Thankfully Papa E managed a little free time off of work and was able to attend our ‘real’ session.

T Newborn Session

Baby T just turned 3 months the other day so I guess it’s time to share her Newborn Photos!!! All of the DW children are literally a carbon copy of each other, I feel like every blog I’ve ever written about them I keep telling them to have more children because they’re all so beautiful and well behaved but I think they’re finally stopping at this beautiful little lady! Sweet little Baby T was also the only child of theirs born in the fall so we made sure to incorporate some fall aspect into her session and I am utterly amazed at how hard she slept in the pumpkin!

O & K Family Session

It always brings me such great joy when my newborns make their way back to me and I was SO happy to see Mama K and the handsome Baby O! O is now about half the size of his Mama, which isn’t a hard feat to accomplish, sorry K, wears a mans size 9 shoe, and despite what some photos might show, has lots of wisps of red in his hair! He was so well behaved for our session and even let me spend a little time solely photographing his beautiful mother while he stomped around and tried to find whatever mud puddle he could.

Baby O was my first cake smash of 2019 and I was able to bring back an oldie Goldie set for him! Even though I put extra special love and care into making his cake he was more interested in the cut out One on the top than anything else. All the other damage was done by Mama and me!

J Senior Session

Never have I ever had to sneak around a location so much before in my life but dang was it worth it! About a month ago (almost every blog I write now starts with that!) I shot the beautiful Ms. J who was the a Class A Sneaker. Upon entering said location and before I could even set my bag down we were told we weren’t allowed to shoot there… we found that more of a challenge than anything and spent the next hour using code words to identify employees who’s names we made up (Leslie was the most persistent). It was all well worth the stress though and we managed to create some seriously killer images!!!

A 6 Year Birthday Session

I finally had the pleasure of working with the youngest J sister, who as soon as you get around her, you automatically start treating her like your little sister. You can tell this little lady is surrounded by older women every day (all her sisters are in their 20s) because she is WAYYYY too smart and has the personality of a teenager at 6! You start talking to her and you have to remind yourself you’re talking to a child. I’ve met her a few times by herself (with a sister) before and she acts so sassy and silly, but as soon as her Mama came around she turned into the most well mannered and sweet girl! She was the perfect little model for her 6th Birthday session and I wouldn’t want any other little lady to break in my Belle Dress for me!
