Kristal’s maternity session on a gorgeous evening in the field was a beautiful way to celebrate her sweet little boy who would join their family just a few weeks later.

why you need artwork | nashville newborn photographer

digital files vs. artwork….

Personally, I love both.  That’s right, BOTH are important.

But here’s the thing; the artwork is where it’s at.

And not for today.

Not for the day I hand you your beautiful album, or the day you hang your canvases on your walls.

That’s right…it’s for the other days.  The days that are rough to be a mother.  The days that turn into years and your baby doesn’t look like that little newborn anymore, but is a toddler racing around your home.  The days where you don’t even remember that teeny tiny gummy smile when she was 6 months old because she’s got a mouth full of teeth now.  Those are the times you need to flip through your album and remember.  You need to touch that tangible heirloom album and feel that tiny baby again.   Even the day your a rocking your 3 month old to sleep, and amongst the crying and whining you can look up and see a sweet, sleeping newborn angel around the walls of that very nursery you’re rocking in for the 10th time that day.

You can’t run to your computer or Facebook and pull up your files to remember, and really even if you do, where is the beauty in that?   You deserve more; you deserve artwork around your home to remind you of their newness, of their short time crawling, of that sweet head on your shoulder snuggling in your neck.  And in 10 years when your babies are grown and running around wanting nothing to do with you? You’ll cherish those albums and wall art even more because your heart will remember through those images and feel that little tiny baby again.

Digital files have their place, they really do.  I would personally never hire a photographer who didn’t offer those, so I’m proud to gift them to my clients along with their artwork.  I also completely understand that some of my clients love to make their own artwork.  That’s okay, too!  I include a few prints even with just the files as well. Nothing leaves my studio without a tangible memory in your hands.

Betty McGillis - I love this Jenny, so many people ask only for the disc of images these days and I want so desperately for them to experience what its like to have portraits, canvases and albums. My plan is to invest in a nice album and provide samples for clients so they see the value, i think this will help
Thank you for the reminder :)

summer farm girls | nashville child photographer

I’m not sure these images could scream southern summer evening anymore than they do and I adore that.

Getting together at their new farm, these beautiful little girls were beyond excited to have me meet all of their new baby chickens, show me the hay bales in their front yard, and run around together telling stories and secrets…something I have a feeling they will be enjoying for years to come on their farm.

nigel | nashville baby photographer

Beautiful little Nigel came back to visit me for his sitting up session as part of the first year program and like his mama’s maternity session and his newborn session, I just adored having him in the studio.

This age of wonder and growth, smiles and laughter, and pure love is just amazing.
