Port Royal Fall Family Maternity Photos | Clarksville Maternity Photographer | The R Family

Y'all! I cannot get over this adorable fall family maternity session from last Sunday at Port Royal park just outside Clarksville, TN! I met up with the R family on a misty, grey Sunday afternoon for their family maternity photo shoot and it did not disappoint. I was worried their wouldn't be much color left as we had an early fall this year, but the ratio of leave on the ground to leaves on the trees was PERFECT!


Lori contacted me back in August about shooting her maternity photos for her second little man who will be making his debut in mid December. Lori and her husband, Mason, already have the sweetest chunky cheeked son, Maverick. I was so excited when she asked if we could make her maternity photos a combination of family photos. There is just something about seeing your older child love on their new sibling in mama's belly that just gives me all the feels!


As a mama of two, I know that toddler life is tricky. The attention span is short, they are headstrong, and rival teenage boys for being bottomless pits for food. Maverick is the quintessential toddler, but his parents were calm, cool, and collected - plus always 3 steps ahead - making their session magical. We laughed, chased little man, bribed him with goldfish, and took advantage of every opportunity.


While whole family maternity photos are special, I always make sure to do break outs with mama on her own, husband and wife together, and each (in this case 1) child with mama on their own. Adding a new child to the mix changes your life in the best possible way, but it does change the dynamic, whether it is you first or fourth child. I love to capture where each family is in this season of life so families can cherish these memories for years to come.


Lori, Mason, and Maverick - thank y'all so much for entrusting me to capture this season of your life before another sweet, adventurous little man joins your family in December. Your kind and warm spirits made me feel like we had been friends for years. Lori, your smile is captivating and your boys adore you - who can blame them? You'll be adding a new admirer to your crew before you know it and I am so excited for y'all. Congrats R Family!
