Best of 2018 | Sweet Wally Photography | Nashville Newborn Photographer | Bowling Green Family Photographer

Wow what a year! 2018 has been wonderfully kind to Sweet Wally Photography, and I am so grateful.

After taking some time off in 2017 to relocate our family, I wanted 2018 to be a rebuilding year in Nashville and a launch year in Bowling Green. This has kept me busy and that’s just what I was hoping!

I’m so grateful that so many of the women I have photographed over the past year have now become my friends. How lucky am I? Thanks Sweet Wally Mamas - you make this all possible.

Cheers to 2018 and best wishes for another great year in 2019!

Why does it take so long to receive my photos? | Sweet Wally Photography | Newborn Photographer in Bowling Green, KY & Nashville, TN

A photographer shows up to your house for a lifestyle newborn session, hangs with your family for a couple of hours and then it is three weeks before you get to see the photos. Why in the world does it take so long?

Editing. The culprit, my friends, is the editing process.

Two photographers can capture the exact same moment, but what she does with that image in post-processing is what truly makes it hers. Styles vary from light & airy to dark & moody and those who own those looks have come to it through trial and error and lots of time behind the computer screen.

My style is true-to-life, not too dark & not too light colored images - with very crisp and strong contrast black & white images. Applying this to my newborn galleries takes me an average of 10 hours per session. Some photographers are faster, some take more time - but it is a labor of love to achieve a seamlessly blended 50 image gallery. But hopefully you will find the end result is worth the wait!

Here is a snapshot of some images in the before and after stage.
