Bailey’s 8 Month Session | Nashville Baby Photographers

Miss Bailey is growing so fast and is such a beautiful baby! It is such an honor to be able to photograph her 1st year and spend time with this sweet family. When our clients books us for their baby’s 1st year, we’re so excited! It takes away the stress of making sure you document how quickly they are growing. You have your 4 sessions booked and you know you’ll have great pictures from their 1st year. Babies change SO quickly that first year. It’s unreal. I mean…just look at how much Bailey has grown since her 4 Month Session!

I loved my time with this awesome family at Arrington Vineyards. These are truly some of my favorite pictures we’ve ever taken 🙂

If you’re pregnant and interested in booking us to document your baby’s 1st year, please email us! hello@leslieanddusty.com

Bailey’s 4 Month Session | Nashville Baby Photographers

Allow us to do a little back tracking here 😉 We started to put together a blog post to share Bailey’s 8 month session and realized we never blogged her 4 month session! Forgive us, this session was in February and we were getting close to Charlie’s arrival. We met up with the Gibson family in their beautiful house and got some great pictures of little Bailey and then walked around their neighborhood for a few family pictures. And oh my goodness…the pictures of Bailey with their dog Boone are just too cute to handle. Hope you enjoy!

Up next…Bailey’s 8 month session! So much fun to watch this little cutie grow 🙂

Announcing– Strawberry Picking Mini Sessions!

Hey there friends! We’re starting to get back into the swing of things around here after having our sweet little Charlie 🙂 We’re excited to get back to work next week and are very excited to announce our Strawberry Picking Mini Sessions! You guys…this is going to be so much fun. Last year, we took Davis to Green Door Gourmet– it’s a local farm where you can pick your own strawberries. They have such a great store with all kinds of yummy local food and gifts too. We loved the pictures we took of him last year so much, we thought it might be a fun thing to do with some other Nashville families. This is a great session for people who have little kids- Davis was so proud of himself and loved running up and down the rows of Strawberries. This is a lifestyle type session so we won’t be posing large families 😉

Here are the details:

Saturday May 16th (this is NEXT weekend!)

At Green Door Gourmet Farm

2:30-4:00

$150 plus tax + Cost of the strawberries you pick ($3 per quart)

You’ll receive 10-15 High Resolution Files with print release

LIMITED SPACE AVAILABLE

Email us to book today hello@leslieanddusty.com

Here are some of our favorite pictures we took of Davis last year:

Introducing Charlie Morgan Walker!

Happy Friday friends! We have been very busy around here 🙂

Introducing…our new addition Mr. Charlie Morgan Walker:

Newborn photographers nashville

Our sweet baby boy arrived on April 2nd at 12:26pm weighing a healthy 8lbs 10oz and 20in long. He is named after two very special men who have left us but would both be so proud to know his name. Charlie was my grandfather who passed away in November and Morgan was my dad’s middle name (and is also mine). We are so in love with this little guy- and still in shock he is a boy! We didn’t find out the gender with both of our boys and it has been so much fun. We all pretty much thought this one was going to be a girl though. Little Charlie is doing great and adjusting well to our loud house with a 3 year old and barking miniature dachshund. 😉 Big Brother Davis is doing fantastic. He mostly ignores Charlie and lives in his own little world full of trains, snacks and playing outside…but when he does pay attention to Charlie is very sweet. He says ‘It’s ok Chaawie’ very sweetly when he cries and loves to tell me to change Charlie’s diaper so he’ll stop crying.

We are just loving this season in our lives- as crazy as it is. This mama is going to need many girls nights with all these boys around 😉

My mom came in town about a week before Charlie was born and we spent the time cleaning, getting the house ready and doing a lot of waiting….and more waiting for his arrival. And when the day came he was here SO quick. It was such a special day with all of our friends and family celebrating. And they were literally celebrating– the weather turned out nice enough that our family and friends set up a tailgate outside the hospital. Haha. 🙂

We’ve spent the past 2 weeks getting settled as a family of 4 and taking many many pictures…as I’m sure you can imagine. We already have so many pictures we need to go through. Here are some of our favorites:

Bailey’s Newborn Session | Nashville Newborn Photographers

Hello everyone! Sorry we’ve been so MIA lately- it’s a crazy time of year for photographers! 🙂 We’re trying to finish up all of our weddings and meanwhile shooting many wonderful family sessions!

I can’t believe we haven’t shared this newborn session with you yet! Ohhhh goodness…sweet little Bailey was a dream to work with and we just loved spending time with her and her awesome parents. We’re so excited that we’ll get to see them many more times throughout Bailey’s first year- as they booked our First Year package to make sure all her 1st year milestones are captured. All parents know that first year totally flies by so it’s nice that they know they’ve got 4 sessions already booked with us.

We love being able to give our clients a mix of those sweet posed newborn pictures and detail shots of their little features along with more lifestyle type shots of the baby and new parents just being together in their home.

Check out some of our favorites of this sweet little girl:

Yup. We’re having ANOTHER baby!! 🙂 Yay! We’re so excited to add another little munchkin to our family. Davis is (hopefully) going to be a great big brother! It’s nice to finally be able to ‘announce’ this very fun news. We can’t lie though- it’s been a rough few weeks for this prego. I definitely didn’t feel this bad with Davis and with so many weddings, sessions and work to get through it’s been a crazy couple of months. We’ve powered through though– with MUCH help from Dusty, our family, coca cola classic (yes, I’m drinking caffeine), Chick-fil-A & unfortunately LOTS of TV for Davis. But we’re doing great now & excited for things to come! We’re feeling very thankful we get to go on this crazy ride all over again. I just keep looking at Davis and thinking about how BIG he is…and just can’t imagine another little newborn in my arms. It’s going to be fun and crazy and amazing.

We’re still not sure yet if we’re finding out the sex of the baby. We didn’t with Davis and it was THE greatest surprise of our lives. We just might do it again. 🙂

Also— it will be business as usual around here until about March of next year through May. Of course as luck would have it– ALL of our wedding inquiries lately have been for March & April. Can someone get married in June? 😉

Thanks for sharing in our excitement!!

Baby Owen’s 6 Month Pictures

Happy Friday everyone!! I dare you to not smile looking at all this cuteness 🙂 I met up with our friend Kayla a few weeks ago to capture little Owen’s 6 Month milestone! What a squishy, precious, smiling, happy baby he is!!! He has come a long way since he was born in November of last year at 9 weeks before his due date!! From 3lb. 14oz. to 14lb 12oz. in just 6 months! Way to go O! You might remember his newborn session we did. We just love this little guy!

It’s amazing the amount of facial expresssions babies can give you in a short 15 minute photo shoot! LOVE these.

Strawberry picking adventure

Hello friends! I have ‘Strawberry Fields Forver’ in my head while going through these pictures 😉 My friend Meredith told me about a small local farm where you can go pick strawberries so Davis and I went out there this past Friday. I wasn’t sure if he would really care about it but he loved it! And this kid…his love for strawberries/blueberries/blackberries is unreal. Kid can inhale some fruit. We had such a great time. I know my mom is espeically going to love these pictures. When I was a little girl I had a little bouncy seat with strawberries all over it and she has many pictures that my dad took of me in that seat chowing down with strawberries all over my face.

I seriously can’t get enough of this child. He has me totally wrapped around his finger. Can’t believe he’s a big 2 year old now. Whew. I know I will treasure these pictures 🙂

Who wants to meet us for a strawberry picking photo shoot soon?! 🙂 Would be such a cute spot for a family session!

Also…check out those last 2 pictures haha! As a photographer, I really hate to ever ask a child to smile and you will never hear us telling a child to ‘Say cheese!’ You just get forced smiles…but lately we’ve been asking Davis to ‘Smile for MawMaw’ (he calls my mom that)…and we get this hilarious face and I love it. 🙂

We’re back!!

Hey friends!

WOW. What a trip. There really aren’t words to describe what we just experienced. Do you know how beautiful our country is??!?! California is just unbelievably beautiful in SO many ways. We had such a great trip and we’re quite sad that it’s over but also quite happy to be back home with our sweet boy (we missed him like crazy being gone 10 days!!!). Just wanted to give you a little peek at a few of our pictures. Our cameras nearly exploded from all the pictures we took 😉 We can’t wait to get these printed and have them all over our house! Thank you to our clients for being patient with us while we enjoyed a little break!

It’s been nice having a few months of a little ‘down time’ with a few sessions here and there….mostly maternity & newborns – which has been so fun(!)…but wedding season is upon us. In 3 weeks we’ll shoot our first wedding of the year! We’re very excited for all that we have booked this year. Once the craziness begins… we don’t slow down until November. Should be tons of fun so stayed tuned for a lot more on the blog!

We’ll do a full recap of our trip soon. I’ve had many people ask where we went, what we felt we did right, what we would have changed, must see places, etc. I think we’ll do a full breakdown of that soon! In the mean time…
