Nashville, TN Family Photographer | Moore Family

Why am I just now sharing this amazing session!?!? Oh right, life got crazy last fall and then we traveled 7ooo miles around the world to get our baby! That is why! Oh this family! Oh how I love them!! Their happy girl Violet was such fun photographing in downtown Nashville, and I just loved how these images turned out.  Her little 3 years old personality just shined through and her mama and daddy couldn’t help but smile too.  Take a look at one of my favorite family’s of three!!

Davis, Our 4th Month Home | Texture Tuesday

June has been my favorite!!!!! We had so many fun things going on this month, friends visiting, our first date night since bring him home, our first road trip/family beach trip/sleeping away from home trip, building a playset in our back yard, preparing for Davis’ 2nd birthday party, potty training, and family coming into town to celebrate!  It was a busy but awesome month! Again, Davis started talking more! His latest words were “more” and “help.”  His “more” sounded like a muffled “ma ma” and his “help” sounded like a yelping puppy, but I love hearing his little voice.  

Our friends from Illinois came to visit us for a weekend! We got to hang out for a few days in Korea while they were meeting their son for the first time and going to court.  Their court date was one week before ours, and they brought their son, Deacon, home one week before we brought Davis home! It was so great to have them here, and have both our boys HOME! Last time we were together, we cried, we prayed, we wished, we dreamed about our boys finally being home. So this trip, to actually see them together was pretty incredible! We cannot wait until our next visit! 
We went on our first road trip to Hilton Head so I could shoot THIS wedding! It was amazing once we were there, but Davis is not on board for long car rides yet.  He doesn’t really sleep well in the car and our little fella with no nap = no fun! We broke the first trip into two days and visiting with our friends in Georgia. The next day however, we had a grumpy boy who got a random bloody nose and tons of traffic.  It took us forever to get there! BUT we did get there and we took Davis for his first walk on the beach! 
He Loves the ocean, but hated the sand… see his grumpy face on the far right… that is his thoughts of sand on his hands or feet.  My thoughts too bud…
The ride home was MUCH better! We were on the road by 6:00 so I think that really helped.  ***Note to self, leave for road trips EARLY!!
Daddy and Uncle Brad built a pretty awesome play set for Davis in our back yard! Davis loves it!! We got to see our friends Lori and Davis again twice this month!

We ordered art canvases for our den of our amazing family session and hung them up!! We are in love with them!!! More on our family session with Chesley soon!
My sister and her kiddos came down for Davis’ birthday celebration!! Loved our time playing with them, and so fun to watch them all play together. 
Birthday party fun!! Our boy is 2!!!! What a fun day with our friends coming out to play and celebrate with us.  I remember this day so well last year.  So many tears shed for our boy since we couldn’t be with him.  So many tears shed for Davis’ birthmom. Such an incredible day for our boy but so hard on us to not be with him.  In Korea, their first birthday is a really big deal, and it was so hard not being able to celebrate with him.  So this year, we wanted to have a big celebration together to celebrate our little guy being HOME, for good! 
Oh, and we started potty training…. What was I thinking! But no, really! He did so well! 

Such a good month! All around! We are making it! Learning how to be parents. Learning how to meet his needs. Learning that our hearts are more capable of love than we ever knew! Our boy is simply amazing.  We are so tremendously lucky that out of all the babies in the world, God choose us to get to love, cherish, and parent this one.  My heart may just burst with love for him at any moment!!

Davis, Our 3rd Month Home | Texture Tuesday

Our third month! By this point, I truly couldn’t remember what life was like before this little guy came home! What did we do with all our time? Goodness gracious we love our boy and truly love getting to see is personality shine through! This month we had several firsts! He started saying DaDa and Mama! Like really saying it, and using to get our attention! He had new words like Nana, Papa, Gigi, Honk Honk (this boy loves cars!!), pop (as in a waffle goes POP from the toaster), and more and more his verbal understanding was growing! This boy loves to read so that has been our time to learn new words.  It is so remarkable to watch his little mind work, absorb, and grow.  Makes me miss teaching… just a little bit! More of his firsts, we had more playdates, went to the lake for the first time (this mama’s heart was a nervous wreck!!!), *I* got to go out for the first night with my dear girl friends, we had our first round of sickness,  I finally got to really experience my first Mother’s Day, and we got to have OUR turn in front of the camera for family pictures!! More on our first family session on another Texture Tuesday coming soon:)

Take a look at our third month!

Family time outside, playing, laughing, and silliness!

Our future engineer:) 
Happy Mother’s Day!! 

And the sickness came… and lasted way to long…

When we got our referral for Davis, our social worker called him our Little Guy, and it just stuck! Then we saw this shirt and just had to get it.  So surreal to see him wearing it 13 months later! 
Girls night out! And silly daddy putting Davis in too big jammies…. He woke up all in a tangle with one arm out! 
First lake day, and my first night working where I wasn’t home to put him to sleep. 
Newest Braves Fan! 

There it is! An amazingly fun month! This summer of June and July has just flown by with lots of trips and visits to share, so come back to see what we have been up to and watch our little man grow and learn!

Lebanon, TN Newborn Lifestyle Photographer | Hugh

This sweet baby boy!! SO many cute, cuddly boys lately, and I just love them all.  I got to meet sweet Hugh when he was just a few days new and he was a snuggly little babe! I love getting to go to my clients homes and see their new babies in their homes! This session was no different! This little boy was so wanted, is so cherished, and you could see the love and excitement (and a little exhaustion!!) over every inch of his mama & daddy’s faces.  Take a look at a few of my favorites from their newborn lifestyle session.
