Every morning the sun rises and sets the stage for another chapter in the story of our lives. These days overflow with adventures and fairy tales. Our heroic little boys battle villains while our princesses prepare yet another table for tea.

As the sun sets, the day’s minutes fade into memories and another page turns. If only we could stop the clock. Bottle up the days of dragons, castles, tea times and Pegasus and preserve them for the generations to come.

Here are some of my favorites from one of the Live Bunny Minisessions I did back in April. This was the second year we did the live bunnies for Easter and they are just the cutest and sweetest things. I have really enjoyed them both years. They are certainly the least intimidating of all the animals and the kids seem to take to them right away.

Hi there! I’m Melissa Toms, a southern girl from Nashville, Tennessee. I'm a natural light photographer specializing in the images of childhood. I love capturing your family’s story with the same wonder seen through your child's eyes.

As a mom of 3 boys, I know that the days are long but the years are so short. I strongly believe that the simple, everyday moments add up to magical memories that are worth preserving.

I love to document the tender newborn snuggles, the rowdy toddler phase, and the imagination of those fleeting school years. I would love the opportunity to work together to document your story for you to cherish for years come!

I was born and raised right here in Nashville, TN.  I know, I know, I'm like the only one.   I couldn't love this city or this state more.  The gorgeous rolling hills and colorful sunsets.  There is no other place I would rather call home sweet home.

I love being outside, whether it’s at the beach, sitting outside at First Tennessee Park taking in a Sounds game or hiking in the Smoky Mountains, I enjoy being outdoorsy more than indoorsy.

the outdoors

While I have always loved poring over old family photos, I never really thought about being a photographer. Growing up, I thought I wanted to be an architect or a broadcaster on the news. Or better yet, have my own talk show. Basically I wanted to be Oprah (but who doesn’t want to be Oprah!?)
