…9 month old mcclain…

I can’t believe that sweet little “baby” McClain is already 9 months old! I couldn’t believe it when her mom contacted me wanting to do this session and I was amazed on how time is just flying by. In efforts to make each session special, McClain’s parents wanted to go to Scarritt Bennett, over in Nashville, to take her pictures because that is where they were married. We met up early last Sunday and that place was just beautiful! Just look at all the gorgeous pictures we were able to create…

…collin…

I always wonder how my past clients are doing when I don’t get to see them after long periods of time, and this client is not any different! I last saw this family back in 2008 a few months after their daughter, was born. I was so pleased when they asked me back to do another session, but this time it was for their new son, Collin! Just take a look at these cute kiddos and how sweet they are to one another…

And this was one of my favorites…it just shows these children just as they are, not all posed up and smiling as we are used to!

…ashton…

I got a wonderful call back from Jaxon’s mom asking if I would be interested in doing a three-month session for their newest son, Ashton. I was so happy that they allowed me in their home again to see this growing family and to meet little Ashton! He is such a cutie and I was even more amazed how much Jaxon has grown in the past few years! We will start off with a few captures of my little three year-old buddy, Jaxon, and then move on to the sweet Ashton.

And now it is Ashton’s turn…

This little guy had found his hands earlier and was sure to show them off in almost every frame we had!

…growing with McClain…

Sweet baby McClain has been growing over the past three months! She is such a good-natured baby and was full of smiles during the whole session! I appreciate her parents being willing to work with my schedule because of the arrival of Baden and the end of school. We ended up venturing down to Centennial Park for our session, where we came away with some of the most beautiful shots! I had such a great morning with McClain’s parents that you can totally tell how it related back to our photographs. Just take a look and see!

…baby baden…

Well, it has been almost a month since the arrival of our new baby boy, Baden. Once we got home, I couldn’t wait to take some more “formal” pictures of my son. I had taken quite a few in the hospital, and I will love and cherish those photos, but I wanted to do some special ones for Alie and I and our family. I am pleased and proud to introduce our new son, Baden!

derek…senior 2011

What a privilege it was to have a session for this young man! When Alie and I bought our first home almost 8 years ago, Derek and his family were our neighbors! When I heard that he was a senior this year and was in need of senior pictures I jumped at the chance to help this great young man. We had been trying for months to schedule the perfect time for his session and we finally were able to get him! I think we got some fabulous portraits that his family will be able to cherish for a long while. Congratulations and we are all so proud of you, Derek!

Derek also took up soccer this year. We had to work in some pictures in his uniform just before they went to play for (and eventually win) the Robertson County Cup! This picture can only be appreciated in a larger view!!

…and baby makes four…

That’s right, our little family of 3 is increasing by 1 more! I have been asking Alie if she would like to do some maternity photos in hopes she would say yes. Here lately she has been so ready for all of the little nuances of being pregnant to go away just so she can enjoy this last pregnancy and her family. Our new son, who coincidentally is due in 5 days, has been giving his mother a hard time and I just wanted to do something to make her feel better about herself. She finally agreed to some “quick” pictures in the backyard a few weekends ago and said that she may be up for more in the coming weeks until his delivery. Lets just say that she hasn’t been in the mood for any more pictures since our quick session, so she finally let me post what I did have. I think she still looks just as beautiful as ever and of course sweet Maggie had to be included to make for some memorable photos!
