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.

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.

I have been so excited for this Nashville maternity photography session.  I have been photographing this sweet couple for years.  They just welcomed their first son into the world.  So I thought it would be a perfect time to share some of my favorites from their Nashville maternity session.

We had a gorgeous night with beautiful lighting for their session.  I use several locations in the Nashville and Hendersonville area.  This is one of my favorite places to meet clients around Nashville.  This location gives a different look with every season.

Mia just came to the studio to view the proofs from her Nashville senior photography session.  I am so excited to share a few of her favorites.  Mia booked our Diamond Experience for her senior portrait session. This package includes a pre-consultation, HAMU, and styling.  My stylist, Jackie Mewbourne, with My Style Scoop is the absolute best.  She helped plan all of Mia’s outfits and accessories.  From her earrings down to her shoes, she does it all!

Mia is a dancer, and we used that as inspiration for her first outfit.  The touch of sparkle from the gold worked perfectly with Mia’s dark hair and our urban location.  One of our absolute favorites was this staircase shot.  I give all the credit for this location to her mom.  I walked right past it, and her mom stopped us to look at it!  She said she’d be my location scouter from now on 🙂

This family of 4 is moving soon, and they thought a Nashville family lifestyle photography session would be a great way to remember their first home.  I have been honored to work with them for years.  Really since both babies were babies!  I thought this would be a perfect location for their family session.  What a great way to say goodbye to their beautiful home!

We went outside to get pictures of the front of their house.  When I found out their dad built this swing set, I knew we needed pictures there.  Charley was upside down most of the time.

They had fully renovated this home together, and the kitchen was AHmazing!  I was in love.  From the huge island to the awesome kitchen table, I had lots of “locations” to use.  It was so fun seeing the kids playing in their home.  You can really see personalities come out in a Nashville family lifestyle photography session.

We were almost finished, and dad suggested a few pictures in his studio with the kids.  He said they always sneak in when he is working.  (Sounds like my kids!)  So they showed me their favorite thing to do when daddy is working.  Roller coaster chair!!!  Oh those smiles just warm my heart.

Sweet Charley wanted to show me her room before I left their Nashville family lifestyle photography session.  It was pink, full of light, AND stuffed animals.  How can you go wrong?  It was so fun seeing her little personality come out in her very own space.  I couldn’t have asked for a better way to end our lifestyle session.

Conor came to my baby photographer studio Hendersonville TN for his studio sitter session last month.  Sitter sessions typically take place between 6 and 7 months.  We want to make sure baby is sitting independently for these sessions.   I like to focus on milestones over specific ages.  Sitting is one of the biggest milestones to capture.  Babies at this age are typically very interested in the camera, and me!  It makes for a really fun session.

Baby Sitter Milestone Sessionbabyphotographer(pp_w768_h512) Baby Photographer Studio Hendersonville TN

Our baby photographer studio Hendersonville TN is fully stocked with props, outfits, headbands, bonnets, and more.  We decided to bypass the outfits for Conor’s sitter session.  Naked baby shots are my absolute favorite.  I just love how they are so simple and keep the focus on baby.  The change things up a bit, we mixed in different layers and props.  The greenery and browns we used for Conor were the perfect, masculine touch.

Conor loved the camera!  I’m so glad he made such good eye contact, because we could really see those beautiful baby blues.

We used this dark blue rug for Conor’s newborn session.  Those images were some of his mom’s absolute favorites.  So I thought it would be fun to incorporate it into his 6 month session at our baby photographer studio Hendersonville TN.

I love all of these pictures from Conor’s session.  They really show his sweet personality.  I can’t believe in just a few short months that we’ll be planning his one year session.  SPP offers several packages for baby’s first year including studio milestone sessions, outdoor milestone sessions, and family sessions.  Email shannon@shannonpaynephotography.com so we can discuss the best milestone packages for your family.
