Nashville Boy Moms – Keeping boys entertained {Family Photographers Nashville}

A little intro

Hey y’all, it’s me! I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself. I’m Jenna. I’ve been a Nashville area family portrait and wedding photographer for more than a decade. I love shooting the connection between families and capturing the little moments that might go by unnoticed. I’m passionate about real, fine are prints and heirloom albums, because I believe memories shouldn’t be lost to the hard drive.

My boys

I’m also a mom to two boys! We have a first grader and a toddler. The age difference between our boys is exactly five years, and we love it! However, it can sometimes be a little challenging deciding what to do that will entertain both of them. Here are three things we love to do where everyone has fun.


Did you know the City of Murfreesboro Parks and Rec department has an indoor pool that is open year-round? It’s true! We love this pool because of the awesome water park aspect of it and the fact that it’s very shallow. There are lots of things for our older son to jump and splash on, keeping him engaged. There is also a beach entry to the pool, which means we can let our toddler run free without worrying if he’ll fall in.

Zoo Days

The Nashville Zoo is always a big hit with our two boys. There are tons of yearly membership options, which means you can come and go as much as you please. Some days we spend the whole day, and others we only plan to see a little bit of the Zoo. We’re looking forward to trying out Boo at the Zoo for the first time this fall!

Family picnic

For Christmas this year, my mom bought me a membership to the Arrington Vineyards wine club. I love it for many reasons, but I especially love visiting the beautiful vineyard. It’s rolling hills have incredible views, and there is plenty of wide open space for our boys to run and play. We love grabbing some food to go from Chipotle or Chick fil A, then spreading our family quilt for an outdoor dinner as a family. On the weekends, there is typically live music as well. It’s a win-win for our family … the kids have space to play and enjoy the adventure of an outdoor meal, and we adults can relax with a nice glass of wine and take in the views.

Family Photo Location Ideas

Speaking of Arrington Vineyards, it happens to also be one of my favorite places to photograph my clients! It’s just a short drive from most parts of Nashville and Franklin, and the views make an excellent location for family pictures. There is no fee for taking photos at Arrington, and as a bonus you can grab a bottle of their delicious wine while you’re there!
