FRY-DAY...fun for the whole fam! 💥

Those little baby curls and little baby ends don’t last forever.

Sweet potatoe fries for a sweet Thursday snack! 🍟🍠😍❤️💥🤤

Sometimes it catches parents by surprise when I photograph them alone. We get used to only being in family photos. I adore capturing them “seeing” each other for a bit again... because how often are you staring at each other for longer than a second? ❤️

Will’s so lucky to have these big sisters who adore him already. #bkpgrids (see profile for full image)

So much love for this family! ♥️ Nashville is my absolute favorite place to take pictures, all the lights, the buildings, buzzing cars- it makes an amazing backdrop!

We are specifically looking for nannies who are experienced with infant and toddler ages. If you have experience or know of a nanny who does, we with would love to hear from you and connect you with some very sweet families in Nashville! ✨Hit the link in the profile to connect with us✨ And I mean, look at that face! 📷:@cherylconstablestudio

Since losing my entire website, and every single blog post over 8 years, last summer (thanks hosting company!) I’ve been playing the ‘just get things back up there game’ with my website.......usually I try to mix up full session shares of my favorites along with blog posts of glimpses for clients right after their sessions, keeping a pretty regular schedule of doing so for almost a decade now......except thankfully, since this happened in June, I have had more glimpses to share in any given week than scheduled times to blog...... meaning I am sitting here staring at dozens upon dozens of sessions that need to be shared beyond the first one or two glimpses of each.......and finally today is one of those days........with a favorite session of mine from 2018. You can find the link to all of my favorites in my profile and if your family needs this too, let’s chat more!

Is she not just the cutest little thing you have ever seen? And let's just talk about her outfit... girl has more style in her pinky than I do in my whole body! . . . #jennaclicks #nashvillefamily #nashvillefamilyphotographer #murfreesborophotographer #franklinphotographer #franklinfamilyphotographer

In the face of this huge social problem, this is at least *something* I can do besides just feeling hopeless. At #bloomanashville, we specialize in prenatal, postnatal, baby and kids yoga, but we do have classes that are open to everyone as well. We'd love to help support federal workers ... maybe ease their stress just a little. #repost @blooma.nashville ・・・ Are you a federal worker who isn't receiving your pay during the government shutdown? We'd love to provide access to classes to help support your self-care during this stressful time. Please email us at studio@bloomanashville.com for details. #nashvilleyoga #nashvillefit #nashvilletn #nashvillethebeautiful #onlytennisee #nashvillefamily #nashvillewithkids #nashvillemom #nashvilledad #nashvilleparent #bloomanashville

@jakenicholsmusic and @teralynnemusic at @kidrocksbigasshonkytonk Jake loves performing on that big stage! #mentor #nashvillefamily

Did you hear? Messy Arr is BACK! Join us TOMORROW at either 9:30 or 11:30 for a fun story and craft time!

Pure perfection. The blanket she's laying on was made just for her, and it makes her look like she's floating on a cloud, don't you think? . . . . #nashvillenewborns #nashvillefamily #nashvillebaby #nashvillebabies #franklinbabies #murfreesborobabies #babysfirstyear

When we couldn’t figure out why Sassy started screaming while nursing at 7 weeks old, we were referred to a baby massage therapist. I’m not sure the massage worked for her, but the therapists knew I was beyond stressed out (my dad had just died). She told me that I needed to get some time to myself, take off my shoes, sit under a tree and breathe. ⠀⠀ I thought she was nuts until I tried it. Turns out, being outside, in the woods with the birds and trees is my happy place. So good for the soul! . . . #thefreelensed #thefreelensedproject #freelensing #kidsoftheoutdoors #tinybigadventure #rawchildhood #runwildmychild #wildandfreechildren #optoutside #theeverydayportrait #theartofchildhood #littlebellows #our_everyday_moments #let_there_be_delight #celebratechildhood #soulful_moments #memoirsofmotherhood #nashvillebabies #cameramama #documentyourdays #franklinchildphotographer #adventuresofchildren #nashvillekids #childhoodeveryday #lovelifeoutside #childrenofseasons #nashvillechildphotographer #nashvillefamily #nashvillefamilyphotographer #mode_emotive

Thank you @mafiaozas for being so kid-friendly! They provide entertainment flipping pizza dough and provide dough for the kids to play with! 🍕❤️🥰

So I talked about it yesterday (well with what is basically earlier today for me) about how I am bettering myself as a photographer by investing in my education. Well, I have also been working with an AMAZING invitation designer, @brittneynicholedesigns, and have been photographing her beautiful suites! Not only am I creating content for her, but I am also practicing my skills to help create scenes like this for you on your wedding day! #heckdesignsandphotography #heckdesignsbride • • • . . . . . #murfreesborophotographer #nashvilletn #nashville #tennessee #musiccity #nashvillephotography #nashvillephotographer #murfreesboro #portrait #nashvilleblogger #photographer #portraitphotography #weddingphotographer #nashvilleweddingphotographer #lifestylephotography #photography #murfreesborotn #nashvillewedding #nashvillebabyphotographer #familyphotographer #canon #franklintn #nashvillefamily #nashvillegram #smyrnatn #shoplocal #photooftheday #callielindseyworkshop

Sooooo good seeing these sweet kiddos on Saturday! Mom was a little worried about doing studio photos, as most backgrounds there are simple colors. (Can be hard to envision how they’ll turn out!) I always love simple + pure backgrounds, it keeps the focus on those sweet little faces! #nashvillefamily #nashvillefamilyphotographer #kidsofinstagram #nashvillekids #nashvillekidsphotographer #nashvillechildphotographer #canon

No Monday blues over here 🤤🤤🤤

the best gifts have the most meaning... you know these little desktop fun signs? For at least a year I’ve wanted one from one of my fav little shops in seaside, fl and yet I couldn’t bring myself to spend the money on it. At less than $50, I just never pulled the trigger even though multiple times I’ve brought hundreds of dollars of clothing up to their counter to purchase..... I think partly I couldn’t decide on the exact saying I wanted (so many gold choices!), partly the dark wood color was not my jam, but really who knows?!.....and then this showed up in the mail a few weeks ago. My husband found one that was white and gold instead, and picked out the most perfect saying to describe how hard I work every single day building the business I began almost 9 years ago. And that’s the kind of gift that means the most. Because I was seen. And appreciated. And loved. And I’ve hustled and now am learning to settle down and slow down. ✨

This little guy gave me all the baby feels. I mean, look at that hair 😍

I could honestly stare at this photo for ever and ever ✨

I love catching a baby making heart eyes at her mama. So sweet and special!

Little baby Avery killing me with her eyelash extensions 😍😍😍

Lots of YUM happening here today! See ya soon...open at 11, Nash fam! 💥✨❤️🍔🙌🤤

Deep breath in to start the week, deep breath out to land securely in your body. Nashville has many resources for your journey through all seasons of parenthood. We have mama groups, childcare and movement classes here at the studio. And there's fantastic support through organizations like @therootedbridge, @nashvillebabywearers, the Nashville chapter of @icanbirth, and @nashvillebirthcollective. Need help finding support? DM us! #repost @therootedbridge ・・・ Ask for help. Ask for support. We aren't intended to do it all alone.

[This time last year we had this beautiful winter scape] We are keeping our fingers crossed for a winter wonderland in Nashville soon. The forecast has some snow for next week ❄️ So until then, we will just live through all of you who have this pretty white stuff on the ground. #tuckertreehouse #instagramtennessee

#repost @climbnashville ・・・ Our student membership is going on now and it is a great opportunity for students from preschool to college level to grab a Climb Nashville Membership at an affordable price. Until January 21st you can purchase a 5 month membership for $275 or you can get a monthly membership for $60 a month with no enrollment fee. ⠀ #climb #nashville #climbinggym #indoorclimbing #students

WEEKLY PARENT CHALLENGE: Put your phone away when your kids are present (i.e., awake and in your house, car, etc.). Why? Studies show the excessive use of our phones is harming our children (compromised safety, feelings of unimportance, social awkwardness). Makes sense. I’ve already been very aware this morning how often I have the urge to look at my phone for no reason at all. Up for the challenge? Comment “challenge accepted” if you’d like to join me this week! Let’s put our phones on silent, put them away, go play with our kids, and show them what’s really important to us. #nashvilleparentsguide

@chuysnashville is always a good go-to with kids! Large, loud restaurant with a good happy hour with a chips, salsa and queso bar. Be sure to try the creamy jalepeno ranch dip!

Bluegrass Brunch @thesutler Sat and Sun from 10:00am - 3:00pm. With kids, I recommend you go at 10:00am before it gets crowded. Enjoy the live bluegrass music, bottomless mimosas, and a Bloody Mary bar. It’s a fun place to take friends visiting from out of town to see live music and bring the kids. They surprisingly had high chairs. I was impressed with how great the food was and how comfortable I felt in there with my 2 kids (1 and 3) to enjoy some live music and get out of the house for New Years!

Happy New Year! 🥳🥂 What would you like to see more of from @nashvilleparentsguide in 2019? Share your thoughts please! Wishing you and your families a wonderful year of peace and happiness! 💛✨

@true_food_kitchen ❤️ When we walked in they offered my toddler an Etch A Sketch to play with at the table 🥰 Renowned physician and doctor of integrative medicine, Dr. Andrew Weil founded True Food Kitchen with the simple belief that food should make you feel better, not worse. The food is delicious and I love supporting a restaurant with this healthy philosophy! Their food is created for an anti-inflammatory diet. “Here, we believe in a lifestyle that encourages simple changes in eating habits to avoid and counteract chronic inflammation—a way of selecting and preparing foods based on science that can help people achieve and maintain optimum health over their lifetime.”

New favorite! Made with fresh, all-natural ingredients from local farms. My personal favorites are the truffle fries, classic burger, continental club, and the ahi tuna burger @hopdoddy

Thrilled Nashville now has @shakeshack! 🍔 Delicious burger and they have shuffleboard and a foosball table for the kids

Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas! 🎄 . . . . . .📷 @ryanjasonphotography

Always a favorite @fivepointspizza! They gave my daughter pizza dough to play with when we sat down. The pizza is to die for and they have wine on tap 🍕🍷 Only negatives: they aren’t a huge place so go super early if you need a table with high chairs. They also don’t serve milk so bring it yourself if you want it. #nashville #nashvillelove #kidfriendlynashville #nashvillemoms

I can’t wait to check this out! Has anyone been yet?? Share your experience! @gaylordoprylandresort ・・・ Indulge in Music City's newest attraction, SoundWaves. The upscale experience is setting the stage to be Nashville’s premier water attraction with 4 acres of combined indoor rides, relaxing indulgences and seasonal outdoor water amenities. Much like the temperature-controlled indoor gardens at the resort, SoundWaves will be kept at 84 degrees all year-round. In addition, its unique roof will allow you to get that sun-kissed glow indoors, even during the winter. Give the gift of memories this year: book a SoundWaves family getaway, put it under the Christmas tree and play together in the new indoor water attraction in January before the kids return to school or over MLK weekend!

My favorite 🍕 @fivepointspizza has always felt very kid-friendly! Locations in East and now West Nashville! . . . #kidfriendlynashville #nashville #nashvilleparentsguide #nashvillefunforfamilies #nashvillemoms #christmasinnashville #cheekwood

Thank you @boombozzeastnashville for being so kid-friendly and having a PLAYGROUND outside! We ❤️ you! ・・・ Did you know kids eat FREE on Tuesdays? And with the playground out back, we'd call that a parent's dream 🙌🏻. . One free kids meal with a paying adult for kids 10 and under. Includes choice of Kids' 8"" Cheese Pizza or Kids' Pasta, plus a treat and a drink. . . . #eastnashville #nashvilleparents #nashvillefoodie #kidseatfree #nashvilleparentguide #nashvillemom #kidfriendlynashville

Check out @honeysucklehillfarm! There’s nothing better than FALL Family Fun!! 🍂 Includes a pumpkin patch, corn maze, hayrides, pumpkin train, zip lines, petting zoo, pony rides and more!

Pilgrimage has always presented itself as family friendly which means kids are welcomed and encouraged to experience festival culture at a young age. Kids programming includes award-winning entertainers on the Lil’ Pilgrims stage, plus activities and craft making. The Lil’ Pilgrim’s area has expanded the activities stage, The Mare Barn Theater, to include sessions in kid improv, up close puppet and magic shows and a songwriting workshop for children. Visit pilgrimagefestival.com for tickets

BBQ is usually a safe bet with the kids. My personal favorite is Edley’s. The staff was very accommodating for our group plus a high chair and helped us pull a table over for more space. Great place to bring kids and feel comfortable. Note: There is not a changing table in the bathroom.

🌻 sunflowers are back! Come check out these beauties THIS THURSDAY (8/30) from 5:30-8:30pm. They will have food trucks, live music, and a bar in the barn! The event is totally FREE and rain ☔️ or shine ☀️. This will be their last free sunflower event of the season so make sure to tag your friends! @greendoorgourmet No pets or professional photography allowed

When I go to dinner or drinks with 2 young kids I want somewhere where if my kid fusses no one will hear it or mind, somewhere with games/distraction, and space for them to walk around. This normally takes us to a brewery. My favorite, family friendly brewery in Nashville is Tennessee Brew Works! Best food you will find at a brewery. Big area on 2nd floor with tables and games. Outdoor patio. Great beer. Live music. Only negative: they don’t have a baby changing table. Be prepared to change the baby in the car when you go. @tnbrewworks
