Turning 5 Years Old | Collierville Family Photographer

I have been photographing this wonderful family for two years now, and I think each year we get better and better together. We celebrated Emma turning five this year with balloons…and not just the ones her parents brought for her, but a giant hot air balloon was taking off just feet from our session. What I thought would have been a HUGE distraction actually ended up being a fun surprise that brought smile and wonder to her face. And who knew that in just a few minutes the hot air balloon was in the air and out of sight?!

Happy Birthday Emma!!


A Fun-Filled One Year Session | Collierville Family Photographer

I photographed this adorable girl's newborn session (see here), so of course I was super excited when her family came back to document her turning one!  I will say, that these one year sessions are quickly becoming my favorite types of sessions!  Her mom brought the balloons and cake and it just made celebrating her that much more fun!

I have been photographing this family for a few years and I was thrilled when the mom emailed me from the hospital to tell me that she had had a baby girl!  You can see her maternity session here and you will be seeing more of baby Hannah Kate as the year goes on because she is a part of my Baby Plan where I will document her milestones along the way.  Her two big brothers didn't phase her a bit and their at home newborn session was all about pink and the new girl in town!

Three girls and a Dad | Collierville Family Photographer

I am always leery of posting fall family photos too soon before Christmas because I don't want to ruin the surprise of a family's Christmas card, but hello?!?! how did I never share these?!?!  I am lucky to call them my dear friends and while these were taken two years ago I just loved their energy, smiles and love so much that I just had to share it!

Blonde Brothers | Collierville Family Photographer

These blonde brothers were so sweet to one another. They are less than two years apart and really loved on one another during their family session.  And there were no shortage of poses from Henry - he has the side lean, cross the legs and killer smile down!  I called it his heartbreaker pose!

Chamberlain Family | Collierville Family Photographer

I love a family full of boys!  All the rowdiness, potty talk, and kisses were worth getting down and dirty for in order to capture the C family!  And who knew boys could have such gorgeous hair!!

Newborn William | Memphis Newborn Photographer

If you have followed along with me and my business (formally Pea Pie Photography), you have probably noticed that my newborn sessions have evolved over the past 5 years.  I started off posing newborns with blankets and wraps and hats and bows but that really isn't what made my heart sing.  I have come to find, that for me and my art, I am most in love with the connection, the newness and the simple moments from newborn sessions.  So during my lifestyle newborn sessions I focus more on the family and give a littler extra attention to the big brother or sister if needed, rather than getting a newborn to sleep so that he or she can be posed a certain way.  I loved getting to know the A family and I am kicking myself for not sharing this post sooner because it is clients like these that make it all worth it for me!

Rooks Family | Collierville Family Photographer

It had been over 20 years since this family had their pictures professional done!  20 years people! I just loved that we connected and were able to put some updated family photos on the walls of their new home!  

Nickel Family | Collierville Family Photographer

I knew this family and I would be a great match when they said they truly were interested in candid photos of them together.  Since we were so close to the square and they are Collierville residents, we headed there to finish up their session and it was a great ending to a great session.

Lynn Family | Collierville Family Photographer

These two sisters were some kind of sweet!  The weather was just right and there were tons of giggles and smiles had by all.  If you are struggling with what to wear to your next session - just take at look at how this Mamma brought it all together with a similar color palette but nothing too matchy-matchy.
