Kingston’s Newborn Session | Hendersonville TN Newborn Photographer

I think, I could be wrong, but I am pretty sure that Kingston is my biggest newborn yet.  He weighed 9lb 7oz when he was born.  He beat my Little Bit by 1 oz!  So that chunky little weight holds a special place in my heart, and seriously, he did NOT feel like a newborn.  But he slept like a newborn, and that keeps me happy, happy!  I absolutely love all of his precious little rolls.  And those scrunchy little lips?  Oh, I could jump through this screen and squeeze them!  I know his parents are just in love, and I can’t wait to watch their little family over the next year.  Congrats, A Family!

Jordan’s Newborn Session | Hendersonville TN Newborn Photographer | Hendersonville TN Photography Studio

Meet Jordan, on of my newest First Moments babies. It was so nice to have a boy in the studio! I feel like I’ve been on girl duty for a while now. Words can’t even describe how in love I am with this session. Jordan arrived at the studio in a deep sleep and stayed asleep all throughout his session. His tiny little features were so little and so perfect. I think I said he was “pretty” at least 126 times.simple-smile Jordan's Newborn Session  |  Hendersonville TN Newborn Photographer  |  Hendersonville TN Photography StudioI know his parents are even more in love than me, but it sure was nice snuggling with that little guy for the short time he was in the studio. I can’t wait to watch him grow this year!

Channing’s 9 Month Session | Hendersonville TN Baby Photographer

I have loved watching Miss Channing grow during her first year. We always get a panel shot of her to match her brothers’ panels, so I suggested that they come to the new studio for her 9 month session. This girl came in with all smiles, and I just knew it was going to be a good morning!

She has started a cute little habit where she fiddles her new little teeth with her finger, and her mommy wanted to try to get a picture of it. She was not very happy with us when we first tried to get her to do it, but we ended up catching it.

My absolute favorites from the session are below. Each time we changed her on the ottomans in the studio, she’d start squealing and laughing. It was so precious that I wanted to try a set up with the ottomans. Sure enough, we stripped her down to the diaper and those big grins started coming. Love these!

Henley 5 Months | Hendersonville TN Baby Photographer

There are really no words for how adorable Miss Henley is, so I’m just going to show you.

Those beautiful bright eyes and curly lashes just melt your heart, and I don’t even have to mention that precious smile! I have got to have the most beautiful clients ever!  Technically, this was supposed to be Henley’s 4 month session, but time passed us by so quickly that we had to settle with a 5 month session. I’m not sure how 4 months would have looked, but I sure am loving this 5 month session! I am pretty lucky to be watching her grow during her first year.

We used my studio for her session.  When the idea of a studio came to mind, I was worried about a few things.  1) I still wanted to shoot primarily outside.  2) I still wanted my work to look “unstudio” like.  I think this session shows that I can do exactly that.  All of the outside shots were taken in areas around the studio.  I’ll have to share pullbacks sometime.  The inside shots are in my fabulous shooting room, and although you can tell it’s the studio, I’m having fun incorporating different props and accessories to make each session look different.

Ok, I saved the best for last. I can’t look at this face without smiling. I can’t wait for next time sweet girl!

My New Studio | Hendersonville TN Photography Studio

I have been keeping a BIG secret, and I can finally share it with everyone!

I am officially opening a studio this month!  This has become a huge project over the summer.  It’s caused a lot of stress but even more excitement!  So let me tell you a little about it.

SPP will be moving into a cute little house in the heart of Hendersonville, TN.  It’s in a charming grey cottage with yellow shutters.  Inside you’ll find a sitting area and office for meeting with clients.  After each session, clients will be able to meet me at the studio for an ordering session and to view all of my fabulous products.  There’s even a little area for the kids to play while we chat.

The walls will be filled with pictures, but until they are ordered, here’s a little sneak peak.

There are two natural light shooting areas. I will use them primarily for newborn sessions, but I’ll also be photographing babies there – especially in the winter months. This my friends is what sold me.  I am in love with this room.  You may notice it from this session.

There’s also a huge workspace. Do you know what that means? No more packaging products on the floor in my house. No worries of little fingers getting a hold of a canvas or dogs drooling on a package. I’m pretty excited about little things like that!

So what does this mean for SPP?

I am still an on-location photographer.  I will still have outdoor sessions.  I will be able to focus more on newborns and babies, some of my favorite little clients.  Newborn clients will be able to come to the studio for their sessions.  They will have my huge assortment of newborn props right in front of them to choose from for their session.  For my baby sessions in the winter, we won’t have to worry about temperature.  We’ll have the warm, cozy studio available to us.  I will be sharing the studio with two other local photographers, Kristen Weigel and Shannon Watson.  The name of the studio is Snap Studios because we are sharing the space, but we are still our own businesses.  We each specialize in different age groups and will be happy to make referrals if we can’t accommodate a client’s needs.   I am so excited to work with these great ladies, and I am even more excited to share this space with all of my clients.  We will be having an Open House at the end of August so that everyone can stop by and visit.  I’ll announce the date soon.
