Rock Castle Fall Minis | {Hendersonville Nashville Family Photographer}

I had some awesome families join me for fall minis at Rock Castle in Hendersonville last weekend.  It was a great day… a little windy and cool, but it definitely felt and looked like fall!  I LOVED everyone’s outfits.  This post could serve as a What to Wear guide, coordinating and not matching is the key, and they nailed it!

These 2 brothers were AWESOME!  I think I have a weakness for brother relationships now, and these guys were so much fun.  Their laughs and giggles came so naturally, I loved watching them together.brothers smiling and laughing in fall foliagebrothers smilingI photographed Miss C’s 3 month session this summer, but this was my first time meeting her sisters.  Not only are they gorgeous but as sweet as can be!  Daddy is going to be in trouble in a few years 😉 I loved these colors, and they worked so well with the colors at Rock Castle!  Love, love, love!What to wear for a family with 3 girls3 sisters smilingI can’t say enough about this last crew.  One of my favorite families and our very close friends….

Beach Minis Part 2 | {Destin 30A Beach Photographer}

Day 2 of my beach minis was beautiful but WINDY! I always warn my families to prepare for wind, especially their hair, but this was probably the windiest beach day that I’ve had.  I started the day off with one of my Nashville First Moments babies.  She did not enjoy the car ride to the beach, but oh my!  She absolutely loved her beach session.  She was literally all smiles from start to finish.  I don’t know how I’m going to narrow down her proofing gallery.  Every single click of my camera was a fabulous image.

I am hoping to offer additional weeks for beach sessions in 2014.  Please make sure to sign up for my newsletter at the top left corner of the blog.  I will send out an email when I announce dates and start booking sessions.

Memphis Spring Minis | {Nashville Gallatin Baby Photographer}

I don’t get to Memphis for sessions as often as I used to come.  Between business in Nashville, my boys’ sports, time with friends, life is busy.  So it’s definitely a treat to come back to town and meet up with my Memphis families and visit my favorite Memphis locations.  I have photographed 3 out of 4 of these families several times, so it took my a while to find a location that was new to everyone.  I couldn’t believe that they all hadn’t been to one of my favorite Memphis locations.  We had a wonderful day with gorgeous light and beautiful families.  I couldn’t have asked for an easier or better afternoon.  Thank you to all of my Memphis families for continuing to trust me for your family pictures.

If you have little boys, don’t fret! I know only girls are pictured, but I do have a plan for boys. I’ve got a set of adorable ties and bowties on the way, and we can remove the pink and use blue and cream or just cream. Red will look great with it!

Email me to book your session: shannon@shannonpaynephotography.com

We’ll get you scheduled for a time, and I’ll be happy to make outfit suggestions.

Here’s a little peek at the fully customizable Valentine’s. There are a total of 8 designs including 3 for boys.
