Outdoor Family Photos in Clarksville, TN

One of the best parts of my job as a photographer is being able to capture special moments for families. Due to where I live (very near to Fort Campbell), I get the opportunity to work with a lot of military families to help them capture milestones while they're stationed here in Tennessee/Kentucky.

I was approached by this lovely family to help create artwork for them before they went through a major transition of adding a new baby while going through a deployment! Kayla, the beautiful mama you see below, and I have been following each other on social media for quite a while so it was lovely to finally connect in person and meet her gorgeous family and super smiley baby boy. We got ready at my studio in downtown Clarksville then headed to a nearby park to capture the rest of their session and the results were incredible!  In fact don't just take my word for it, here is what Kayla had to say herself: 

Danielle photographed my family of three before my husband deployed and our new baby was born. I cannot put into words how wonderful our experience was. She goes above and beyond through every step of the process from beginning to end. She made me feel so beautiful even in the “is she chubby or pregnant” stage of my pregnancy. Our family will always cherish these pictures! Thank you Danielle!

Senior photos downtown Clarksville TN 

"My pictures turned out more beautiful than I could have ever imagined."

Tracie reached out to me to capture her senior photos to celebrate graduating from Middle Tennessee State University, and I'm so glad that she did! This lovely lady is such an accomplished student, hard worker, and pleasure to get to know.

We hit it off as soon as we started chatting, and when Tracie mentioned that she had her heart set on outdoor photos, inspiration immediately popped into my head! Eventually we decided that shooting in various spots in downtown Clarksville would be best and give us the most variety.

For my senior grad sessions, I always suggest that clients invite their families to join us and step into a photo or two to document this time in their lives, and Tracie took me up on the offer. Her mom and sisters joined in for the first part of our shoot and it was so worth it! 

Enough from me, though. Here are a few words from Tracie sharing what her Signature Session experience was like with D. Phillips Photography.

"I tend to be one of those awkward picture takers, so I was really nervous going into my photo shoot."

I’m here to tell you, there is no need to worry! Danielle was friendly and professional from our very first email exchanges, which let me know I had chosen the right photographer. I was open to ideas for location and Danielle carefully scouted Clarksville prior to my session to ensure we found the perfect locations to take pictures.

On the day of my shoot, she helped me look over my outfits and decide which ones would be most flattering in my pictures. She was very thorough in ensuring that we captured the vision I had for my pictures, while adding her unique photographer's flare. During the shoot, she also guided me through different poses and postures to help avoid awkward limbs and unflattering faces.

The hardest part of the entire process was trying to select the pictures to take home, because they were all so beautiful. I’m so glad I found D. Phillips Photography and I couldn’t be happier with my pictures!

Thank you ladies for everything you did to make my photo shoot perfect! Karlie, my hair and makeup has never looked so good :) It was amazing not having to worry about hair and makeup before or during the shoot. Danielle, I am so grateful I found your website.

I was nervous about getting my pictures taken, but you made me feel so welcomed and reassured throughout the entire process.

I'm glad I'll have these pictures to capture this time in my life to share with my family and future generations. Now, I just need to find a reason to book another session :)
