Sisters Maternity Photoshoot {Pregnancy Photographer, Nashville, TN}

When I realized that my sweet pregnant friend, Kristina, had a look-alike (not twin) sister and that they were both pregnant only a few weeks apart, I just about BEGGED them to let me photograph them! At first I was thinking a drone shot of the two of them lounging on pool mats in a fancy pool would be AH-MAZING, but they were feeling too “pregnant-y” for that (you mamas know what I’m talking about) so we scrapped the swimsuit idea.

We ended up going to Kristina’s house and her sister brought over some dresses and we did a very casual maternity photoshoot with the two of them that probably lasted maybe 30 minutes.

My vision was to have them on the front porch together, shoes off, just enjoying each other’s company. The image I had in my head was to give the photos a current-day take on the photos we see now when we look back at our grandparent’s images - not a lot of background blur because that wasn’t really a thing yet, black & white and simply showing daily life.

We did some maternity photos like that, but then her sister also had these matching lace kimono things and I was like OH. WE NEED THESE. I pictured them with backlight pouring through, accentuating the feminine designs of the lace & the obviously feminine lines of two baby bellies.

BUT FIRST - haha! - I got there before her sister arrived, so we just hung out in her bedroom looking for good light and chatting, so I had to snap some images in there. The painting above her bed is her own! Her artwork is amazing and you can see more of her work HERE.

Fun Downtown Bachelorette Party {Nashville TN Documentary Photographer}

When I got the request to shoot this bachelorette party, I was totally excited.  I had never done a bachelorette party before, despite the fact that Nashville, TN is the Bachelorette Capital of the US!  Even though this shoot was a departure from my family shoots, I wasn't at all worried because I always strive to capture connection, which can be found in any situation!

Luana clearly wanted her "last hurrah" captured with a lot of local flair and fun, especially considering she & her friends were from out-of-town and had never been here before (except one of them, a long time ago).  

Immediately upon viewing the image inspiration she'd sent me from Pinterest, I knew the EXACT locations in the pictures and decided to start our shoot under the Pedestrian Bridge and then make our way up onto it - letting the wind lead us after that! 

As is typical at the beginning of any shoot, they hadn't quite loosened up...yet.  All of a sudden they all busted out singing Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'" and it was ON from there!  Any photo where it looks like they're singing, they are!

The obvious excitement and happiness for the bride-to-be radiated from her entertaining and hilarious bridesmaids.  Everyone was there to help her celebrate!  Her maid-of-honor even brought some classic "crime" signs that we had too much fun staging and shooting! (Keep an eye out for the ready-to-help bouncers!)

It was a fantastic shoot & these ladies will have some great images to remember their super fly night!
