Cheekwood Estate Family Portraits | Nashville TN Family Photographer Dolly DeLong Photography

Photographing Diana’s beautiful family at Cheekwood Estate was a DREAM come true for me! A Cheekwood Estate family portrait session has been on my bucket list for a while and so when Diana messaged me about a session here, I couldn’t say “yes” fast enough. And seriously, the whole thing really was a dream. Cheekwood Estate is absolutely stunning and this sweet family was adorable – just a wonderful experience all around. We even lucked out with beautiful fall colors and foliage the day that we shot there. We had such vibrant and rich colors all around us. Honestly, I’m not joking when I say I’m obsessed with these images!

Diana’s family was a joy to work with. They were traveling cross country from California to celebrate all of the life events going on around them. What a fun idea!! The Mosson family decided that in every major city they stopped in, they’d have family portraits done. Along with Nashville, they’d stopped in Chicago and a few other cities. What a fun memory for their trip! I’m just so honored I was able to be included on their list and to help document these milestones for their sweet family!

    Do you ever have mini sessions at Cheekwood?

      Hello! Yes, but only if the families pay for the Cheekwood permit fees (there is a required permit to shoot at Cheekwood and it’s around $300 the last time I shot there!)
