Hey Y'all! I traveled to Memphis and Nashville for an Heirloom Portrait work trip and will be sharing the best of the best from our time there! My sister, Kathleen, along with our mom and our kiddos (Eric, Brady + Georgia) accompanied me on this trip!! I was 26 weeks pregnant at the time so they thought I would need extra help (they were right :) ) so I really appreciated them!

We stayed at The Peabody Hotel in downtown Memphis and let me tell you it was amazing! If you haven't heard, The Peabody is known as the "South's Grand Hotel" and is legendary for its ducks! This beautiful hotel houses five North American mallards that come down from their home which is on the very top floor all the way to the lobby (yes they ride the elevator.) It's a cute thing to take your kids to see!

I loved having him on a work trip with me. Love my boy so much!!!!

Just livin' the life :)

The boys (Eric left Brady right) thought they were so big eating room service. The food at The Peabody is delicious!

Now we can get into the heirlooms... the reason why I'm sure you're here! :)

Annie is such a doll! Her mama, Alice, is a fashion blogger and so so sweet to be around and work with! If you don't already, give her a follow! I will tag her instagram handle below.

I loved everything about Annie's portraits. I also love the outfit Alice chose from my complimentary collection! Next up is little brother... Bennet!!

His expression is the best!

"Mom, please make this nutty woman hush."

Sweet Kerley children!!!

My second session of the day was awesome. Vanessa is also so so kind and I was SO happy and excited to take her Mama + Me portraits along with Oliver's.

I started taking Mama + Me portraits because WE ALL KNOW how rare it is to have photos with our babies. Everyone else gets photos with them BUT US mamas and it's because we're so busy. I made it super simple to sign up for these. You just simply choose this option as an add one when you sign up!! They’re becoming a favorite of mine for sure.

Vanessa is so beautiful! I love these so much.

Oliver gave me so many different smiles and I loved it!

Once I wrapped up with this precious session we packed up and headed to Nashville! But of course had to stop and get BBQ. You can't not eat BBQ when in Memphis.

Georgia+ Eric LOVED pork rinds lol. I know this isn't the prettiest picture but it's real life. We were traveling with 3 toddlers and were already exhausted at this point! No one wanted to get back in the car and we still had to drive to our family's house in Nashville.

My dads mom and all of his sisters + their kids live around Nashville so we were really excited to be able to stay with them and visit with everyone! We also got to visit and snap portraits of my moms first cousin + her grandchildren so that was a plus, too!!! Lots of good family time. :)

I wanted to share the Heirlooms I shot in Nashville as well. We'll start with my little cousins on my moms side. Sweet Charlotte + Fisher. Enjoy!

Charlotte looks so timeless in her Aunt Maggie's outfit

I LOVE this portrait of a grandma and her precious grandkids. Renee is my moms first cousin on her dads side. I wish we got to see them more! And now on to my final session of the trip... Nate!!

... But first coffee

Nate's mama Katie is also a fashion blogger ( I will drop her instagram handle below.) Katie is super sweet and the best mama. It was fun getting to visit with her. I seriously loved how every single one of his portraits turned out. I can't wait to see what portraits these sweet mamas choose to have printed!!!

How precious is he?!?

We ended our trip with massages!! My aunt that we stayed with had a masseuse come to her home and boy was it much needed. Eric and Brady even got a lymphatic massage she put Brady to sleep during his. SO FUNNY!!!!

Post massage.... let me just say. The best!

The kids stayed with my mom and Aunt while me and Kathleen went to our sessions. Thank for their help!!

I hope you all enjoyed a little glimpse into what our Memphis\Nashville trip looked like!!! I will link instagram handles below. :)

I was really really looking forward to this engagement session! Not only because Sarah and Ethan are the sweetest couple,

but because they are FAMILY. Ethan is our nephew and we're so happy for the two of them as they start their lives together!!

I wanted to share my favorites from this session with you all even though it was hard to narrow down. I'll also be sharing their wedding on the blog as well so stay tuned for that!!

I just love a good black and white!

We shot these in my brothers yard. I've been eyeing this grass every time I pull in his driveway and was so excited to finally shoot here!!

After we left my brothers house we headed over to the courthouse in town and I'm so glad we did. I found some real glow!!!!

I hope you enjoyed scrolling through this sweet session!! There were lots of laughs and I can not `wait until their wedding!!

I wanted to share some my favorite portraits I captured while visiting New Orleans this past Saturday!! I always love meeting not only my little bitty clients but their sweet mamas!!! And sometimes other family members, too . It's such an honor to be able to do what I do.

I get asked a lot what my In Home Sessions are like and it's simple! I arrive at your home with all of my equipment in hand (including outfits) and set it all up inside the best room in your house that gives me enough room to move around and work!! The sessions usually last about 25-30 minutes depending on how many children I will be photographing and the age of them. I give myself 45 minutes just to be safe, though!

I know there are a lot of other commonly asked questions but those can be answered in your Heirloom Prep Guide that's sent to your email once your session is booked!

Ok so now that I'm over talking about the technical stuff I'll share my absolute favorites from this past Saturday when I visited New Orleans!!! I hope you enjoy these. :)

These sweet brothers were precious. They did such a great job taking their portraits. It was an awesome way to start our day!!! They are both wearing outfits provided (complimentary) by me. I'll share a blog alllll about outfits soon soon!

I'm sure these handsome brothers weren't too excited about their portraits but I LOVE how they turned out. They are a little older and I always get questions about how older children photograph with Heirloom Portraits. Still as beautiful as the little bitty ones!

They sure have a BEAUTIFUL little sister :)

I always "warn" mamas that sibling shots are definitely the hardest part of what I do but sometimes I get it in one shot!!!

More precious siblings!!!

Sweet baby Peter is perfect. When I showed up to his grandmas home I quickly realized that he's cousins with my nieces!!! What a small world.

How handsome is he!

And so is his brother. Seriously every single one of my clients are BEAUTIFUL.

Three sisters. Boy were they SO much fun!!!!!

And last but def not least... these boys were sweet sweet and I loved meeting and visiting with their mamas! The first two boys are brothers.

And their sweet friend Paul was timid at first but finally opened up for me to capture the most precious portraits. :)

I hope you enjoyed scrolling through some of my favorite portraits from my In Home Sessions in New Orleans, La!! I REALLY can not wait to see what portraits all of the mamas choose to have printed!!!
