This beautiful family is a part of my Baby’s First Year Membership. Like most of my clients, they began their membership with a maternity session, which was UH-mazing! They joined me in my studio and I just fell in love with them. Then, baby arrived and oh. my. goodness. I’m just gonna be counting down […]

Everything about this Nolensville, TN newborn session just checks all the boxes for what I envisioned. The light and the love. It just doesn’t get better that. Except, it does get a little better in that I get to see this beautiful family every few months as they are part of my First Year Membership. […]

I don’t like to play “favorites” when it comes to my photo sessions (because I really do love them all), but as a lifestyle newborn photographer, sometimes I find myself admiring some sessions long after I photographed them. In-home newborn sessions, especially. This particular session was almost exactly one year ago and I can’t wait […]

I could share every single one of these images from this Nashville maternity session. I’ve been hanging onto my last roll of Portra 800 film for several months and this maternity session felt like just right time to finally use it. Gosh, I am so glad I did! While I also shot with my digital […]

One of my favorite parts of a photo session is helping you plan your outfits. I’ve put together a few inspiration boards to hopefully help make planning what to wear for Fall family photos less stressful for you. It’s probably no surprise that I’m a lover of neutrals. Even in the Fall season, I encourage […]

I started KLP as an official photography business almost 10 years ago, in 2013. My clients booked me through simple emails, we agreed on a date, and they would snail mail a check to me for their deposit (which if I recall correctly, was $50 to reserve a date). I burned those edited images onto […]

The only disappointment about this beautiful maternity session is the fact that Cragfront Historical Home is quite the drive from where I usually shoot in and around Franklin, TN. Truly, this location filled my creative cup as a Nashville Maternity Photographer. With it’s “Secret Garden” vibe and beautiful, golden light, I’m already dreaming of my […]

I love a mommy and me photo session! Especially when it involves beautiful, natural light, the sweetest 2 year old, and a gorgeous mommy. These beautiful gals joined me in my studio, just south of Franklin, TN for a sweet mommy and me photo session. Typically, once a year I will host an Instagram giveaway. […]

Almost 2 years ago, I began building a Client Wardrobe to offer my clients. What started with just a handful of women’s dresses has now expanded to over 20 beautiful gowns + a mixture of baby and children’s clothes. With a decade under my belt of photographing new moms, I’ve become an expert at curating […]
