Nashville Family Photographer
Nashville family photographer, Holly Marie is an experienced portrait photographer who has been specializing in modern fine art baby and child photography since 2006. She photographs babies, children, teens, and their families at outdoor locations, in her clients' home environments, and in her studio.
Her one hour sessions are casual, relaxed, and not rushed, so your children will have time to warm up to being photographed. She is often found talking, singing, and playing with the children to create natural smiles and expressions. Holly does not pose children or families, but rather places them in an appropriate place for the image she wants to create. She then captures them naturally often letting them sit or stand as they are comfortable, yielding images that are a true representation of your child and his/her personality.
Her most popular family session lasts about an hour, with minis being only 20 minutes.
An outdoor session with Holly can take place at a local park, downtown areas, or in your backyard. When booking a portrait session with Holly, she will help you choose a location that will be the perfect backdrop for your family's images.
Sessions can also take place in Holly's studio, with up to two adults and two small children. In her studio, she keeps it pretty simple and classic, as she feels the pictures should be about the people and expressions rather than the stuff around them. She uses her white studio wall, solid neutral colored backdrops, and wood floors (white, dark brown, and gray). She has several kid sized chairs, stools, a small wood box, and light gray loveseat. Her goal in studio sessions is to photograph your child’s different expressions, milestones (crawling, sitting up, standing), and relationship with their family members, all within a simple timeless backdrop.
Holly loves the variety and uniqueness of home sessions. She will photograph your family and children in your baby's nursery, kids' bedrooms, living room, or playroom. She can also use your backyard or front steps depending on the lighting at the time of your session. Holly uses your furniture; such as a chairs, sofas, and cribs or photographs your children playing on the floor with their favorite toys or books with a simple wall as a backdrop. Indoor natural light sessions will most likely take place near a window or doorway in a sun-lit room. Artificial light can be added to boost the natural light if needed on a overly cloudy day or in a dimly lit home.
Mini sessions are for the family that wants a few updated images of their child(ren). Great for a holiday card image, mommy and me, or to celebrate something new (lost teeth, new big girl haircut, best friends, etc.). These sessions are pretty limited time wise and can be more rushed, but I like to offer them for those that feel it's a good fit for their needs. They last 20 minutes and can take place in Holly's studio, outdoors, or in your home (for a fee) within 20 miles of Southeast Franklin. A location list will be provided upon booking for outdoor sessions.
