Linsey's Maternity Session | Nashville Maternity Photographer | AluraWayne Photography

It has been such a pleasure getting to know Linsey as she prepares to be a mother for the first time! Right from the moment we met I knew I would love her…Linsey’s sweet and bubbly personality quickly fills the space around you, and she brought her metaphorical sunshine to our session on this otherwise mostly cloudy day!! I can’t wait to document the rest of this journey for her as she brings her precious daughter into the world.

The Birth of Chapel Jude | Nashville Birth Photographer | AluraWayne Photography

It was such an honor documenting the birth of Chapel Jude! His parents chose to keep his gender a surprise, which made it that much more emotional as he was born! Here's a glimpse into his birth through video and photos below.

The Birth of Jeremy | Nashville Birth Photographer | Nashville, TN

Birth is so amazing, each and every time. Jeremy's birth was powerful, spiritual, BEAUTIFUL! His daddy read scripture as praise and worship music played in the background. Mama was STRONG and amazed us all as she brought baby Jeremy into the world. Here is just a small preview of that journey.

What to Wear- A Style Guide for your Session! | AluraWayne Photography

I get so many questions about what to wear. And it's truly important- the look of your photos can totally change just based on what you choose to wear! 

Take this family for example- I took these photos in a relatively simple space and backdrop- lots of green (which I love!) But their outfits really tied their whole family in together (and mama is a local photographer, so she knew exactly what she was doing!!):

Nashville Family Photographer | AluraWayne Photography

Just a few of my favorite things...a great color palette (creams, tans, mustard-y browns, a simple floral to add some visual interest, and a mixture of textures!)

Here's another example of a well coordinated family in a different setting:

Nashville Family Photographer | AluraWayne Photography
2018-05-20_0021.jpg

A different approach: everyone in different colors! But there's still a theme here...these are still more earthy tones. Even the pink is more of a muted rose, and all of the materials flow together very organically. I love a good sundress with details like this one has! It has visual interest on the front, and with the way it ties in the back. The girls have nice flowy dresses which add visual interest even when they sit or stand ( or twirl!). And one of my favs: FLOWER CROWNS! These are real baby's breath crowns that this mama made herself with some floral tape! 

Now let's talk maternity...there are SO many great options for maternity. I'll have suggestions for vendors with links at the bottom of this post, but here are some of my favorite looks I've had from clients lately.

This mustard is TO DIE FOR. I'm always a fan of mustard clothing. Anytime. Anywhere. I love the rich vibrance with my editing style!

Another pro-tip... make the most of your maternity session by bringing a second look! This mama brought THREE! Check out her other two gorgeous looks:

One of my favorite gowns I've seen all over lately can be used for maternity Or a regular session! It even comes in a variety of colors!

Home based sessions are amazing options for maternity as well. You can stay comfy in pjs, like this couple:

Or make it more boudoir-esque mixed with comfort!

Last but not least...NEWBORN! I come to your home for newborn sessions and want you to be comfortable and cozy. I usually suggest comfortable, unrestrictive clothing, especially for mom! Lighter fabrics and colors, especially in a more neutral color palette, tend to photograph the best- with baby too! Here are some great examples of this.

Durham Family Creek Session | Nashville Family Photographer | AluraWayne Photography

This type of session is exactly what I love to capture for you. Playing together as a family, ignoring the camera, and letting me work my photography magic as a shadow in the background, allowing your moments together to really shine through in the finished product.

Letting children be children.

Laughing.

Playing.

Enjoying each other.

Making genuine memories.

I would LOVE to capture this for every family possible!
