Gregg | {Hendersonville Gallatin First Birthday Photographer}

We sure ended Gregg’s first year with a bang.  He has always been an easy guy to photograph, but he was FULL of smiles and laughs for his birthday session.Shannon Payne Photography | Nashville Baby Photography StudioShannon Payne Photography | Nashville Baby Photography Studio

C&F Turn 1 | {Nashville Hendersonville Twin First Birthday}

Two of my favorite twins came to the studio last week for their birthday session.  I’m pretty sure if the year flew by for me, it passed even quicker for their parents.  We had a session full of chasing, laughing, catching, playing, and more laughing.  These two were so much fun.Shannon Payne Photography | Nashville Baby Photography StudioWe snuck in parent shots between outfits.  We only took a few minutes each time, but these were easily some of my favorites from their session.Shannon Payne Photography | Nashville Baby Photography StudioShannon Payne Photography | Nashville Baby Photography StudioAfter lots of chasing, we got creative with our baby containers.Shannon Payne Photography | Nashville Baby Photography StudioAs you can see from the next few pictures, one baby loved standing and the other loved chewing.  He chewed his way through most of the session!Shannon Payne Photography | Nashville Baby Photography StudioShannon Payne Photography | Nashville Baby Photography StudioCake smashes are messy, but multiply that by two, and you easily have twice the mess!  These guys smeared frosting quicker like pros!  I’m pretty sure the cleanup took longer than the smashing.Shannon Payne Photography | Nashville Baby Photography StudioShannon Payne Photography | Nashville Baby Photography StudioAll done!Shannon Payne Photography | Nashville Baby Photography StudioHappy birthday boys!  I am honored that I was able to watch you grow this year.

Abel | {Gallatin Hendersonville First Birthday Photographer}

Abel has been a joy to photograph since I first met him at his newborn session.  He has the most adorable serious face, but then will surprise you with the cutest little smile.  His is on the go now, so this session was busier than his 6 month session.  He might have made his baby wranglers (aka mom and dad) break a sweat, but I’m pretty sure these pictures are worth all the work.  Happy birthday sweet boy!Shannon Payne Photography | Nashville Baby Photography StudioShannon Payne Photography | Nashville Baby Photography StudioHe was not so sure of sitting on a box.  We got a few funny faces each time we tried.Shannon Payne Photography | Nashville Baby Photography StudioHe loved playing in the high chair.Shannon Payne Photography | Nashville Baby Photography StudioBut we saved the best for last.  I could barely get his eyes of his cake, but who could blame him?Shannon Payne Photography | Nashville Baby Photography StudioNashville Middle TN First Birthday Photographer

Cooper 1 Year | {Nashville Middle TN Baby Photographer}

I just love working with Cooper’s family, and his one year session was no different.  It was filled with lots of laughs, a few cries, and tons of squishy booty pictures.Nashville Baby Photography StudioNashville Baby Photography StudioNashville Baby Photography StudioNashville Baby Photography StudioNashville Baby Photography StudioNashville Baby Photography StudioNashville Baby Photography Studio

Owen | {Hendersonville Gallatin First Birthday Photographer}

When Owen’s mommy told me she had a sock monkey theme for his birthday, I just knew we were going to have one cute cake smash.  We had a handsome little boy with a cake he loved, and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out.Nashville First Birthday Photography StudioNashville First Birthday Photography StudioNashville First Birthday Photography StudioWe started his birthday session with an outfit that we thought would look good on the dark wood floors.  This is the same spot where we photographed his newborn session.  As a newborn photographer, I have tons of pee and poop stories, but Owen’s is by far my favorite.  As soon as I bundled him up and laid him down with his daddy, a giant stream of pee shot daddy straight in the head.  I was laughing so hard, I could barely help at first, and his daddy was such a good sport about it.  So I figured it was only appropriate to finish his first year on those same floors!Nashville First Birthday Photography StudioHappy birthday sweet boy!  It has been SO much fun watching you grow this year!
