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:

Emery’s Newborn Session | Newborn Photographer Nashville

Hey everyone! Today I’m so excited to share some of our favorite pictures from sweet Miss Emery’s newborn session. Adrianne is one of my best friends from college and it’s been so much fun experiencing motherhood alongside her. We were pregnant together with our boys and some of this pregnancy too– little Miss Emery joined their family at the end of October and she is a precious girly bundle 🙂

Get ready to see more newborns around here- we’re planning to take on more family and newborn work this year and are so excited! Introducing Miss Emery….

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:

Baby Bennett’s Newborn Session

Happy Friday everyone! We are on a roll around here getting through some portrait sessions. It’s busy season and we’re loving every second of it!

Please just sit down and enjoy sweet boy! All these newborn babies have been so fun to photograph lately and we have quite a few on our calendar for the next few months! We love newborn sessions. There is nothing like those first few days with your baby at home. It’s such a blur and SO very important to capture.

Bennett is absolutely precious and it was such an honor to take pictures for this sweet family. Carrie and I knew each other in college at UT so it’s been really fun to reconnect! She and her hubby live right down the street from us so we’re excited to hang out with them soon. You might remember Carrie & Nick from their maternity session we did in March. 🙂 We’re putting together a beautiful newborn session album with all of their favorites pictures. I can’t wait to see it all come together.

Check out some of our favorites from this newborn session:

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…

Happy Birthday to our sweet boy!

Ohhhh man. This is going to be a happy and emotional day for this mama. Just thinking back a year ago- at this moment we were in the hospital and our family and friends were in the waiting room. At 10:18 our sweet baby boy arrived. We waited till that wonderful moment to find out if we were having a boy or girl and it was so incredible when the room shouted ‘it’s a boy!’.

Davis Charles Walker you have changed this mama in ways I never thought were possible. Birthdays are forever changed for me– now I’ll always remember the anticipation in the days before he was born, how scared but also calm I was, how sweet that moment was when he entered this world, the flood of emotions when I saw his face and they handed him to me. I can’t believe a year has gone by already! We feel so blessed to be your parents sweet boy!

Friday Favorite | Our happy little boy

Happy Friday everyone! We’re busy working on some really fun sessions we’ve done recently. We’re really excited to share pictures from a recent Day in the Life Session with the East Family next week! You might remember them from Avery’s 1st Birthday pictures we did last year. She is so precious and I had such a great time with this family documenting a day in the life of little Miss Avery 🙂

In other news, we had not one but 2 birthday parties for one year olds last weekend! And tomorrow we’re headed to another! We’ll be celebrating little Collier’s 1st birthday tomorrow with our friends Adrianne & Chris. Can’t believe our boys are so big!!!

I am SO in love with this little boy. He totally cracks me up. We took him to these birthday parties last weekend wearing this hat and he actually kept it on! And then the sunglasses…. I can’t even handle the cuteness. People ask us all the time ‘Is he always this happy?’ and I’m grateful to say ‘Yes.’ 🙂 I mean, don’t get me wrong– he can be a total crying, teething mess (which he was this day) but in general, he’s a very happy little boy. I just love these pictures Dusty got of us.

{friday favorite} Nashville Maternity Session

Happy Friday everyone! We’re busy packing up equipment for a beautiful Friday wedding today! Happy Wedding Day Amethyst & Bennett!

I wanted to share some pictures from a recent maternity session I did at Ellington Agricultural Center. I met up with Heather & Ben EARLY in the morning at 6:30 to get these beautiful pictures. The light was AHmazing. It was really so much fun taking pictures as the sun was coming up. There was something so perfect about the morning light while taking pictures of Heather and her sweet baby bump! Can’t wait to see if this little girl has Heather’s red hair! 🙂 Thank you guys so much for allowing me to capture this exciting time in your life!

Check out some of my favorites…

{personal} Davis is 1 month old

Dear Davis,

You’re 1 month old today! I can’t believe it. Time is flying…like everyone says it will. I feel like it was just yesterday that I found out I was pregnant with you and now you’ve been here with us for an entire month. We’ve had so much fun with you the past 4 weeks. Everyone keeps asking how things are going with you in our lives and I honestly can’t complain. You’re a very chill baby (perhaps just like your parents?) and you’re actually sleeping pretty well for us! Thanks! 🙂 You generally sleep from around 9:00 pm till 3:00 am before you wake up to eat. Way to go!!

Some things about you…

Sometimes you like to be swaddled and sometimes you don’t. Most of the time you want your right arm out and right by your face. Sometimes you even raise your hand in the air when you’re sleeping like you have a question.

You like the ocean sounds we turn on when you sleep. And it’s nice for us too!

You’re starting to smile at us. You’ve only done it a few times for me though and it was so exciting to see your little face light up for a split second! I think you look like me when you smile 🙂

We’re still trying to figure out who you look like though– you really do look like your daddy most of the time but every now and then I see a little bit of me in you.

You don’t mind having your diaper changed which is nice. You just look around and kick your arms and legs.

Your typical fussy time happens to be right when we’re trying to eat dinner. Of course it is 😉

You spit up and pee on everything. I do laundry for you pretty much every day. haha

You get really mad when you’re hungry and you make funny snorting noises like I’m starving you. I’m not…I promise!

You’re eating so good! You already weight 9 lbs chunky boy! I can’t believe my 6lb 12 oz baby is getting so big already.

You fall asleep after you eat most of the time and sometimes I just let you sleep on my chest for a while. I love snuggle time with you little man.

You eat from a bottle every now and then and your Daddy was able to feed you for the first time about a week ago. It was so fun to watch him feeding you and he loved spending this quality time with his boy.

You slept in your crib for the first time yesterday and did great! You’re actually in there right now. We’ll probably continue for a while to let you sleep in there during the day and then in our room at night. I like having you close at night.

Happy 1 month birthday to the sweetest baby boy!

Love,

Mommy
