First Birthday Portraits at Union Station Hotel with Nashville Family Photographer Dolly DeLong Photography

I can’t believe Emme is ONE! Just a year ago, I was capturing her newborn portraits for her family here in Nashville, TN. And now, we’ve celebrated her first birthday. We planned a super fun winter portrait session at the Union Station Hotel to document this sweet little girl. And despite the chilly weather, everything turned out amazing. Emme was such a champ for us!

After doing her newborn portraits, it was a special honor to see how much she’s changed since she was born. Emme’s mom, Kim, has the sweetest heart and I can already see signs of it in Emme’s personality. Her dad, Woody, is hilarious. And just like when I worked with him a year ago, he kept us all in stitches during the session.

Kim and Woody planned the perfect outfits. They seriously looked amazing. And isn’t Emme just the cutest one-year-old you’ve ever seen?! Since we did their session close to Christmastime, we actually still captured some of the beautiful decor at the Union Station Hotel. Even though it wasn’t truly a holiday session, it certainly felt like one. And that made my holiday-loving heart happy!! If you know anything about me, you know that I wish Christmas were a year-long celebration!

Happy birthday, Emme! You’re just so sweet and I’m thrilled I was able to capture your first birthday portraits at Union State Hotel in Nashville, TN this year!
