2014. TPAC stage. A woman with brilliantly curly hair reads her story of being pregnant with and the early months of having triplets almost 14 years prior. A photo flashes on the large screen behind her of three barely-toddlers in yellow Fisher Price swings - all of them fast asleep with their arms limp and necks hanging in those funny ways that only babies’ bodies can when they’re exhausted. The woman reads that this was the only way she could get them to fall asleep at the same time.
That show was called Listen to Your Mother, and I got to share the stage with that amazing mom and many more as we all read stories of motherhood. (If you’ve got 10 minutes and want a laugh, this is mine! haha!)
Four years later, she called me and said they were graduating high school and wanted me to be their senior photographer. I was honored!
We shot in downtown Nashville, where the family likes to spend time together. I pretty much fell in love with all three of these kids during this shoot - they’re all so different and smart and creative and so open and ready for the next step in life. My friend and her husband have raised three beautiful humans with three beautiful souls and it was awesome to photograph them. Unlike my other senior sessions, shooting triplets was definitely a first!
