Why should you invest in custom portraiture?

Tyler is 2 | Middle Tennessee Children's Photography { frogs and faeries }

A friend of mine and fellow photographer, Karen, of Karen Halbert Photography met up for a little adventure around Franklin last week. We actually met over two years ago on a February Babies birth board when we were pregnant with our sons who were born just 2 days apart! We all know how hard it is to photography our own children, so we decided to tagteam our boys! I have to say that I got the much smoother end of the deal seeing as how Tyler was the perfect angel to my Jake's little devil act that day! However, Karen ended up getting some amazing shots of my little man even through his best efforts to throw her off! :)

This is a little embarrassing for me to say, but other than with me, my children have never had a professional portrait session! Shocking, I know! I have enjoyed this experience so much . . . from deciding what clothes for Jake to wear to worrying if he would behave to being proven wrong that he would (he's always been great at taking pictures!) to then worrying that I bet there was no way Karen (through no fault of her own) could have gotten any decent shots of Jake.

To the most incredible feeling of love, joy, amazement, and awe when I saw my sneak peak. My heart literally swelled with pride and love for that sweet little two year old who so easily runs my life these days. Up until this point, I had never experienced this feeling that I hope I give to you all each time you see your sneak peaks. I can't believe what I was missing out on. With each image, I felt myself come closer and closer to tears. Then I got to the image of Jake in my lap with my camera up to his face and me helping his "shoot". I lost it. Tears of love and happiness fell down my cheeks. I was (and still am) beyond ecstatic. Karen did an AMAZING job. I can't wait to share my images on here with you. But for now, if you are curious - just head on over to my FaceBook page and you should be able to access them there.

I know I'm rambling, but it's like I've had an epiphany. It's indescribable to see my children through the eyes of another artist. Finally experiencing the feeling that I hope to impart to all of my clients has really made me LOVE my job that much more.

But on to Tyler (who this post was supposed to be all about before I got all emotional!). He was such a well behaved 2 year old! And blue eyes for DAYS!!!



You know I'm a sucker for a good pout!

Then we moved on to downtown Franklin for some Mommy and Tyler images. I am LOVING family sessions here lately - the totally non-posed, day in and day out ways that you celebrate your family.






And what an image to end the day with:

Thanks, T and K for such a great time!
