One of the cutest little girls I know is getting ready to celebrate her first birthday! Arianna, or Ari as mom and dad call her, always seems to have a smile on her adorable little face. I’ve know her for several months know and she is always laid back and just a happy baby. She had fun on her little birthday session despite a pop-up afternoon drizzle and was quite the ham for the camera. She also had the joy of ending the session with her first ever cupcake, which she seemed to enjoy quite a bit. I hope you have a great first birthday Ari and may your second year bring as many smiles as the first!
When doing maternity sessions, I always get excited about meeting new babies in a few short weeks. This baby, however, I’ve been excited about meeting for 8 months now, since I’m going to get to keep her! J.Davis Photography is about to get a new baby model, and I’m sure you’ll get to see lots of portraits of this little girl. The only giel, and the baby, I’m sure she is going to be spoiled rotten. My wife and I took the boys down to a sunflower field in Murfreesboro recently for her maternity session and I just can’t get over how beautiful she is. As one of her friends told her, “You do Mommy well!”. She has been blessed with a smooth pregnancy so far and pray that continues as we head down the final stretch. Stay tuned for updates, her name and of course portraits of this sweet baby girl.
I still feel like 2015 is just starting, but the reality of it is that it is more than half over, and now we are looking on to 2016. Starting his senior year at Johnson City’s Science Hill High School, Landon is quite excites about getting to May of 2016 and starting the next chapter in his life. He hopes to attend the University of Tennessee. The proximity of the Smoky Mountains will be perfect for his love of hiking, and the numerous lakes will provide ample opportunity to get in some wake boarding. Best of luck to you in your senior year and beyond Landon.
Between my move to Nashville, scheduling conflicts and several rounds of bad weather, it has been a while since I’ve had the chance to spend time with this wonderful family. But things finally went our way and were able to get a session in. Being the middle of summer, the new pool proved to be the perfect spot for their portraits, especially when the kids were able to end the session in the pool. I’ve had the pleasure of watching these kids grow since 2010 when their youngest, Molly, arrived and I did her newborn portraits. Molly is now going on 5 and keeps the family quite entertained. The boys are growing up way to fast, with Bryce now driving (something I’m going to get to go through in 4 years with my own!). And after all the proper portraits and smiles were done, the kids were more than happy to cool off in the pool and show off some tricks to round out a perfect summer photo session.
Barrett is back and growing like a champ! At 6-months-old now, he is doing great and one would never know he was almost 8-weeks early and only weighed in at 4 pounds 11 ounces when he was born. His mom and dad said he is a happy kid and full of smiles. He has a bit of a serious side too, which he showed me during his session, but he couldn’t keep the smiles away for too long. So glad to see that he is doing so well and I look forward to my next visit with this handsome fellow.
