Nashville Family Photographer | 5 Reasons to have a Studio Session

Thinking of family photos with your little ones?

Here are my top 5 favorite reasons to have a studio family session over an outdoor family session.

1. Weather. As a Nashville family photographer for 11 years, weather has been more and more unpredictable every year. If you want to be sure the date and time you choose doesn’t need to be reschedule (sometimes multiple times) for good weather, opting for a studio session means you get your portraits done exactly when you plan for them.

2. Variety. Photographing your family and children in the studio brings a ton of variety in posing and prompts, and, as this mama said, keeps your babies close to you without wanting to run all over outside. Kaylee mentioned that she felt like she got more intimate images with her, otherwise wild and free, littles by having this session in the studio.

3. Your Home Décor. Consider what your home design looks like and what will look best on your walls. Do neutral walls and floors and warm natural wood tones look great in your home? My studio might be the perfect setting to make your family portraits into stunning artwork that blends seamlessly into your home’s style.

4. Bedtime. Outdoor sessions are at sunset, which can mean as late as a 7:30pm start time during some parts of the year. If you’re concerned about your baby or child’s bedtime, opt for a studio session which can work around nap time during the day, or an outdoor session in the late Fall to Winter months. (We have very mild winters and Nov-Jan outdoor sessions are often a great time of the day for little ones and stunning outside in the field.)

5. Flexibility. Photographing your family in the studio also means that we aren’t working against a sunset, so if your little ones need an extra snack or have a meltdown, you hit traffic, take longer doing hair and makeup with Kaylee, can’t decide what to wear from the studio’s wardrobe, you have all the time you need; no rushing required. The studio is calm, inviting, and easy going for your family. I also have more studio openings on my calendar than I do field openings, so if you’re needing a last minute session, be sure to take advantage of that.
