McSwain Family + Maternity | Ellington Agricultural Center | Nashville, TN Family Photographer

I love having the privilege to photograph clients as their families grow and change, and the McSwain family is no exception! Amber and Michael McSwain are longtime friends of mine, and I did their first maternity shoot. Once that cutie, McKenzie, arrived, I photographed her newborn and first birthday too. This family is so beautiful that I even asked Amber and Michael to model in a styled wedding shoot for me.

So, I have to say that it was hard for me to shoot the whole McSwain family together during their most recent maternity session. It’s not because I don’t love them all equally, but McKenzie is just WAY too adorable, and she stole the show all day. She even melts my heart when she makes that funny little double chin face (a personality trait she most definitely inherited from her goofball dad, for the record).

Since this shoot was at the same location as the two other family sessions I’ve done with them, we wanted to reenact some of the poses now that McKenzie is a little older. My favorite photos, though, were some of the candid shots that weren’t staged at all. You don’t always need a smile and a perfectly arranged frame. In fact, sometimes it’s far more beautiful to capture those sweet moments that happen on their own.

I can’t wait to meet baby Michael soon and capture all four of you!

And let’s be really honest here folks, you can’t do a photo session with Michael in it without some craziness too.
