Alurawayne Photography

My whole life I have loved the art of documenting memories through photographs and film. I spent much of my time as a child thumbing through the many photo albums my mom kept from both her own childhood and mine. I watched home videos over and over again to relive the moments. Film in its many forms has always been a passion of mine; many years later I would take the path into making it my life’s work. I enrolled at the University of Tennessee to study photography and officially opened AluraWayne Photography while living in Knoxville, TN in 2012. I went on to take my first birth client in the fall of 2015 after moving to Nashville, TN and I was in LOVE. I have continued my education with coursework through Filming Life Academy, Birth Becomes Her, and mentorships and individualized coursework with award winning photographers and videographers.
 

Newborn portraiture with AluraWayne Photography + Film captures the new relationship between your new family dynamic in a lifestyle setting within the comfort of your own home. My newborn sessions are very natural and organic and aim to capture the sweet little details of your new baby and the new relationship you have together! I take a very organic approach towards all of the sessions I offer and aim to draw out the beauty of everyday moments and turn those moments into timeless art.

You baby will change and grow more in the first year than at any other time in his or her life. Believe everyone who tells you that it goes so quickly. It does. Take the time to capture it. Beautiful, professional portraits tell part of your baby's story... a story that is better remembered and shared with pictures that bring you back in time.

Jen Dixon Portraiture

A little about me personally. I married my best friend and soul mate 17 years ago. Together, we have three young boys who keep me on my toes! I got into photography after my second son was born. I always loved photography and wanted a career that gave me more flexibility to spend time with my kids. I never knew how much time it truly takes to run a business! But, I wouldn't change it for the world. I love my job and am lucky I get to meet so many wonderful people.

 

I received my associate's degree in photography in 2012, while I was pregnant with my third baby. I became obsessed with newborn photography after researching the genre for my own bundle of joy. Since that time, I have photographed hundreds of newborns! I studied and trained with the best in the business - ones that pioneered modern newborn photography - Dewdrops Photography by Amy McDaniel and Son Kissed Photography by Kristen Mackey.

 

I am currently offering sessions in the Nashville area, as well as taking a handful of travel sessions per year.
