Senior Guy Session at Marcella Vivrette Smith Park

Senior guy photo session in Franklin TN

It was a gorgeous evening at Marcella Vivrette Smith Park in Franklin for this senior portrait session. And we were able to include a few shots of the family dog. In case you are wondering, I’m always happy to include fur babies in a portrait session, assuming our location is pet friendly (and most are).

I just love the wardrobe choices for this selection. Notice he’s wearing the same jeans throughout, but a few top and jacket changes gave so much variety. I love the colors and textures.

Combination Senior and Family Portrait Session | Downtown Franklin

Family with Teens portrait session in downtown franklin

Sometimes I have moms who are booking senior photo sessions for their teens who ask if I could also get photographs of the entire family. It’s often the case that we schedule lots of photo sessions when our kids are little, but that gets harder to do as they get older. I am absolutely happy to combine a senior and family session.

My portrait sessions are about an hour long, and we can focus that hour on whatever best fits your needs. Some parents just want a quick family shot with the majority of the session focused on the senior. Others prefer a more even split between a family session and a senior session.

I find that particularly when all the subjects are older, with no very young children to manage, a one-hour session gives plenty of time to get a wide variety of shots. A combination session works particularly well when perhaps your senior isn’t super excited about photos and is willing to share the time.

Teen Photo Session at Marcella Vivrette Smith Park

This beautiful young woman is the daughter of an old friend from college. It really doesn’t seem like college was long enough ago that we now both have teenage daughters, but here we are. It was a beautiful evening at Marcella Vivrette Smith Park in Franklin catching up with my friend and getting to know her lovely daughter a little more. We even got to hear live music from a nearby wedding!

Senior Girl Photo Session at Fall Creek Falls State Park

Senior Photo Session at Fall Creek Falls State Park

I’m pretty sure this is my favorite senior portrait session ever, but I might be biased.

Before anyone asks, I’m not in the habit of driving all the way to Fall Creek Falls for photo sessions. This was the “been friends with your mom for almost 30 years and you call me ‘Aunt Crystal'” package. But I certainly wish it were closer. I don’t think I have done a session with waterfalls before.

And that’s why I might possibly be biased towards these photos.

How absolutely amazing is it to be able to watch babies grow up and come into their own? I look at these photos and still see the little girl who liked to fix her “cousin’s” hair and put makeup on them. Now she’s a fierce young woman making plans for her future. I can’t wait to see what adventures await her.

Backyard Family Photo Session in Spring Hill

I’m so glad the weather cooperated for this extended family photo session. When family members are coming from out of town for a session, it makes it especially important for the weather to cooperate. It was a gorgeous evening with a lovely family in a beautifully landscaped yard. And for the second time in a week, I got to include sweet dogs in a family portrait session.
