Have I told you lately that I love…going to client homes and making their photos?! Oh, I have? Okay, just wanted to make sure. One thing I try to do before I even walk up to a house is to have my camera out of the bag and ready. If my camera was packed away, I would have missed the opportunity to document this little guy greeting me at the door! The Poags are another awesome family, living in East Nashville. My favorite part of our session was when I asked Miss E if she was too old to give her mom kisses, and then they showed me their minute-long routine (including butterfly eyelash kisses) they do every night before bed. Getting to know and document little details like that is what I love most about my job.

You might recognize this family from when I photographed the birth of their little girl, born at home. This time I got to go back and see big brothers love on their baby sister…and when I say love, I mean love! I’ve never seen such young boys take an interest or care for a newborn sibling. Such a beautiful family. I am thankful to have gotten to know you all.

it took me by surprise
this old house and these old feelings
walked round and looked inside
familiar walls and halls and ceilings

where I’d dream and plan
every moment of sunshine
this was my whole world
it was all I knew
like the hull of a seed
this old house cracked wide open
as I grew

-Sara Groves

This family is very dear to me.  It’s hard to know where to start, other than what I always say–it is a great honor to get to photograph families in their own homes. You read some of the reasons why over here.  These boys (even Champ, the boxer) have such great parents. I loved getting to watch them play and just be together as a family. There was lots of running, lots of biking, lots of bribing with candy, lots of kisses, and almost everyone got to ride on the yellow tractor. Love you, Ropers!

Real boys ride pink bicycles.

This is why I am passionate about family documentary photography–capturing sincere details like this guy’s first (pink) bike, his tongue sticking out,  and his finger ready to ring the bike bell. I made this photo on his own street, next to his home, where he routinely takes rides with his family.
