I met the H Family for their outdoor maternity photography Nashville TN session last spring.  It seems like forever ago now!  Somehow summer flew by, and I’m back to working full time.  So I have lots of blog posts to catch up on!

Planning Nashville Maternity Sessionsmaternitynashvilleportrait(pp_w768_h387) Outdoor Maternity Photography Nashville TN

When clients book their outdoor maternity photography sessions with me, I send a guide to help prepare for their session.  Clothing is one of the most important choices when planning your session.  Michelle chose a white maxi dress, and she looked beautiful in it.  Maxi dresses are my all time favorites for maternity sessions.  They tend to hug your bump just perfectly.  If you are planning your session, I recommend looking at Free People and Pink Blush, you can even catch some great finds at Old Navy or Target.  The nice thing about maxi dresses is that they don’t always have to be maternity.  If you buy a size up, you can usually make a non maternity dress work too!

Big brother wasn’t quite ready to warm up to me right away, so he got lots of snuggle time with mommy.  My goal in your photo session is not to catch those stiff “cheese” smiles.  Instead, we spend our sessions playing, loving, and snuggling.  That’s what captures those true emotions.  Even though it’s mommy’s maternity session, this little guy also has a big role.  He’s not going to be the only baby much longer!  It’s extra special spending one last session focusing on him.

I can’t say enough about how much I love this styled cake smash photography Nashville session.  Amelia visited me months ago at my Milestone Mini Sessions.  I was so happy when her mommy contacted me for her one year session.  She told me that she didn’t want all of the bright colors that you see in many boutiques.  I wanted to hug her through my computer.  Bright colors can be fun, but I just love how neutrals photography.  They are truly timeless.  I love the textures that come with a Boho look, and that is what we chose for Amelia’s one year old cake smash session.

I love planning and styling photography sessions.  I provide outfits for all of my baby sessions except cake smashes.  They are just a little too messy for me!  So I sent Amelia’s mommy a list of outfit recommendations from Etsy.

We went with that same Boho look and theme for her cake smash.  I love simple cake smashes.   I want the focus to be baby and the cake.  We used this cake as our inspiration.  Tie in her cute lace romper and floral crown, and we had a beautifully styled cake smash.

I was honored when the K family chose me as their Hendersonville Newborn Photographer.  They are a military family and were planning to move just a few weeks after baby arrived.  Can you imagine anything busier?  So in that crazy window, I got to meet baby sister.  What a great session we had!  I loved all of their pictures so much.  It was hard enough narrowing down their final gallery, not to mention picking favorites for their blog post!

She LOVED being wrapped up.  This wrap and headband set from One Sheep Two Sheep looked so soft and sweet.  She even gave us a little smile!

Big sister, Charlotte, did so wonderful for her time behind the camera.  She made my job so easy and fun!  She loved hugging and kissing her baby sister.  I can only imagine how precious this picture will be for their parents years down the road.

I had to save my favorite for last.  With dad in the military, the incorporated his uniform into big sister’s newborn session.  They wanted to do the same for baby sister.  She gave me just enough time for 3 camera clicks with dad.  This was the LAST one.  I just can’t imagine a more perfect picture.  It is by far one of my favorites to date!

When Harper’s mommy contacted me about booking her Nashville one year cake smash, I knew we’d make a great team.  She was wanting a simple, vintage look and wanted a cake with flowers.  Flowers??? Yeah, that one word pretty much wins me over any day.

Nashville One Year Cake Smashnashville_cakesmash_photographer(pp_w768_h595) Nashville One Year Cake Smash

Before we let her dig into her cake, we went outside for a few family pictures.  One of the things I love about my studio is the small outdoor space in the “backyard”.  I say backyard loosely.  You know what I mean if you’ve been there!  But seriously, there are so many great spots to shoot right around my space.

Finally, it was time to dig in.  Harper’s mommy bought a simple cake from Publix.  We used a cake from Pinterest as our inspiration.  I love using Pinterest as a tool to plan cake smash sessions.  In order to keep every session unique, I never recommend looking at other photographer’s work as inspiration.  But I love using cakes, especially wedding cakes as inspiration!  Keeping the background simple and focusing on baby was our goal.
