  Secretariat, Hidden Figures and The Help.   What do these three have in common? They are all movies we watched in the hospital after Carson was born. Pretty impressive seeing as how we were only there for 24 hours. Not being able to leave gave us the perfect excuse to get our moneys worth out […]

Covid. A word loathsome to most these days and the thing that drastically changed our birth plans. First there were no visitors at the Hospital, then one, but don’t count on it. Then we couldn’t leave, then we had to leave quickly. So many plans unfolding right before our eyes. All I wanted was my […]

Our Birth Story | John Carson

Murfreesboro newborn photographer Grace Paul.

He grabbed the spade that was larger than his own hand. Lifting it up above his head and sending it crashing down into the bag of potting soil. Airplanes. This time it was an airplane. It easily could have been dinosaurs, racecars, motorcycles, or a number of other imaginary things we play with these days. […]

Lifestyle session by Murfreesboro Family Photographer Grace Paul

May 29, 2020

I climbed into the backseat to distribute sippy cups and tuck napkins into their collars. The smell of vanilla americanos transforming our van into a small bistro. But instead of smooth jazz or classical piano playing over the speakers it was a chorus of “Are we there yet?”. Forty five minutes and you’d think they’d […]

I first came upon the idea of dressing for how you want to feel after I bought Allie Casazza’s Your Uncluttered Home. One of my biggest takeaways was that you can be washing the dishes, changing the 8th dirty diaper today or 8 months pregnant and still feel beautiful. It comes down to making intentional […]

Check out a few favorites from Chloe and Luke’s Nashville Maternity session!   I first met Chloe when we were working together as wedding vendors. She, a skilled florist and calligrapher, caught my eye with her attention to detail and servant heart. After exchanging numbers and chatting back and forth on social media we decided […]

Nashville Maternity Session | Chloe & Luke

March 6, 2020

I sat at the kitchen table, full of veggie straw crumbs and the remnants of 3 turkey sandwiches. You climbed up in my lap and squeezed my arm while we watched through the archway your brothers dancing in the living room. It was one of those moments that caught me off guard. Nothing spectacular. Very […]

It’s time for another Fount Collective recap! I had the privilege of attending a motherhood photography workshop in Serene, GA this winter.

Lifestyle Motherhood Session | The Fount Collective

Intimate indoor lifestyle family session by Nashville Photographer, Grace Paul Photography.

February 27, 2020

I sat on the floor in your nursery. The room still had a faint smell of fresh gray paint. The walls were bare. I stared at you, lying on that blanket, it had only been a week but how had you changed so much? My camera sat next to me and I could see in […]
