Canterbury Farms Celebrating Motherhood Event

Posted: April 23, 2019 by Ashley McElveen

Happy Monday y’all! Hope everyone had a great Easter weekend with your families. This year our Easter weekend was a busy one! My husband and I celebrated our 5 year wedding anniversary, the next day was my husbands birthday (yea, he should never forget that anniversary date right?), then it was Easter. Ellie has really shown this past year that Santa and the Easter Bunny aren’t so scary.  It’s been pretty fun taking her to see them and seeing how excited she is to sit with them. We will see if that changes next year when she’s three.

The weekend before was pretty busy as well, but so much fun! We decided to go on a weekend getaway. Ellie and I were invited to participate in a motherhood session with Ashley Erin West, a talented Nashville photographer. Ashley has set up an event focused on motherhood and wellness that really focuses on the relationship between a mother and her littles. After she explained why she wanted me and Ellie to come shoot, I was 100% in! The cause and whole look she was wanting was right up our alley and who doesn’t love a good boho farm vibe?!

This Celebrating Motherhood Event is something really special for mommas and mommas-to-be! In Ashleys words,

“This April I want to give you an experience that will nurture the nurturer. I want to walk you through choosing the most beautiful outfits for you and your little ones. I want you to come feel cared for as you get your hair-styled and decorated with florals.  I want to dance and laugh and play with you and your babies as I photograph the beautiful connection between you. I want to send you home with little gifts, hand-picked by me from the sweetest local shops around town that will nurture your wellness and make you feel seen and appreciated. This isn’t your average “mini-session” show up, smile at the camera, go home. This experience was designed just for you and your babies.”

I mean does that not sound like a wonderful day with your babies?! I can speak for myself and that’s exactly what it was for me and Ellie! Ellie had a blast and was a true model! I loved watching her have fun and we were able to just be ourselves while Ashley captured it. All the photos you see in this post is what you will expect for your session – a fun, loving, easy shoot! I also feel like I should mention, the location is breathtaking! It’s at a 100 year old dairy farm that has the prettiest sunlight beaming through the trees during the time you are there taking photos. It truly is a beautiful location.
