Jackson Newborn Session – Columbia TN Newborn Photographer

 

It was so fun to have little Jackson and his family in the studio! He did such a good job and was a champ napper so we could get all the shots we wanted! His big sister is so good to him! Lots of hugs and kisses for him! Little Jackson is so loved! And he has such an amazing family on his side!

 

We had so many wonderful shots from this session! It’s always hard to pick a favorite. But I especially love the ones of him sleeping with big sisters hugs! But I also love the close up of Jackson’s face with his eyes wide open! Such beautiful eyes! So curious about this new world around him! I love it! Do you have a favorite from this session? Make sure to let me know what it is in the comments below!

The Legacy Of Abigail Grace

 

Today is the first day of Trisomy 13 awareness month and is very much a sobering day for me. And I wanted to share a little bit about why with you today.

A year ago today, sweet little Abigail Grace was born and made a bigger impact on the world in that one day than many make in their entire lives.

He parents, Nick and Mellissa, are a couple that my husband and I greatly admire and look up to. We met them in a class at our local gym. They are both local high school teachers and are so incredibly strong and inspiring in their marriage and their faith! They had been letting God decide whether they would have more children for years before finding out they were pregnant with Abigail. Their excitement was contagious and we were so excited to celebrate this little one with them!

The beginning of their pregnancy seemed normal, and healthy, and just so full of joy! About half way through the pregnancy they learned that their sweet little Abigail was struggling. She was diagnosed with Trisomy 13. They held onto hope that they could meet her and spend time with her for a few days or even just a few hours!

On March 1st, 2016, little Abigail Grace passed away in utero. Mellissa was induced and delivered Abigail Grace. I was able to go to the hospital that day and take some images of her tiny body with her mom and dad. And even though they may have never heard her cry or seen her wriggle in her swaddled blanket, she was so incredibly loved. There was more love in that room for that little girl that I even have words to express.

We had a beautiful memorial service for Abigail. And Mellissa’s words during the service are ones that I will never forget. She spoke of the things that her daughter accomplished without ever even experiencing life outside the womb. Little Abigail grace made an impact like no other. She helped people to see the world differently. To open their hearts. And she caused a stir in people that nothing else ever could have. Little Abigail Grace left a legacy and impact that those that are blessed to live long lives could only dream of. We all sent balloons off for the sweet little girl.

Today marks one year since that heartbreaking day in the hospital. And also the start of Trisomy 13 awareness month. It’s still hard, a year later. But I am so thankful for the opportunity to know and love this family and their sweet Abigail Grace!

Williamson Medical Birth Photographer

 

Birth is one of the most beautiful milestones in life! I loved being able to photograph this new life entering the world! Mom was a champ and dad was by her side the whole time! You’ll even see that they had a chance to skype big brother who was anxiously awaiting the arrival of his new best friend!

 

There were so many special moments to capture! Seeing their family grow from 3 to 4 right in front of my eyes! Even a little scary moment when they needed to put this sweet little one on a ventilator to help him get those lungs going. But he was all set and healthy in no time! Big brother was able to visit and their family was all together! It was absolutely beautiful! Hands down, the best part of my job! Mom was a champ through it all!

Oak Nine Month Session – Nashville Milestone Photographer

 

I love milestone sessions. To see these little babies grow up so fast, it’s amazing! I photographed Oak’s newborn session, 3 month session, and 6 month session! In each one you see his littler personality grow more and more! Oak was so much fun! He did so great! He had a blast playing around and being adorable!

 

There were so many fun shots! But I really especially love the one of him holding mom and dads hands! He is so happy and so loved! But the one of him playing with his giraffe is also adorable. As is the one cuddled up with mom. Such a great shoot with so many amazing photos! What are your favorites from this session? Let me know in the comments!

Kennedy Newborn Session – Franklin TN Newborn Photographer

 

It was so wonderful seeing little Kennedy again! I shot her birth not too long ago! You can see that session here! She is such a little sweetheart! Just as beautiful now as the day she was born! She was a champ through the whole session! Clearly, being photographed from birth, has made her a pro baby model already! 😉 In even just a matter of day’s it’s crazy how fast they grow! She did so great with all the outfits and changes! And it was so great to see mom and dad again!

 

There were a lot of fun shots from this session! There is one where she is wrapped in white and just has the cutest big smile for the camera though and I think it might just take the cake! What is your favorite from the session? Let me know in the comments!
