Do you want to incorporate the parents in your baby photoshoot ideas in Nashville? Then we think this unique, warm Germantown loft may be the perfect spot to do so. It is a 750-square-foot space filled with natural light, high ceilings, and floor-to-ceiling windows.

The bed and velvet settee make the perfect sitting areas for the parents to hold the baby. This place has adorable newborn photoshoot written all over it, especially if you’re looking for a homey space outside your actual home.

Another perk that comes with using Peerspace to book new spaces? You can read reviews left from past renters before you decide to rent a space! Here’s an example from this airy Germantown loft: “What a PRECIOUS little spot! … Completely clean, perfect set up, and so much thought put into this space! There was so many different spots to shoot, it didn’t look like the same place in each pose! 10/10 recommend!”

2. Get playful with your little one in this modern contemporary home

Found in the heart of the Green Hills area, this creative, newly renovated home is a stunning location for all of your baby photoshoot ideas in Nashville. Swathed in natural light and with three bedrooms, a living room, and an outdoor area, there are tons of different photoshoot ideas you can indulge in here.

We think both the lawn and the toddler’s bedroom with the adorable tent bed (pictured above) would be great for portraits. If you’re looking for a home away from home with a very Nashville vibe, then this could be the one.

“Really amazing space! Had so many amazing spots to shoot,” confirms a Peerspace reviewer. “Host is also really responsive and answers almost immediately to any questions we had. Would definitely rebook for future shoots.”

We love the idea of baby photoshoot ideas in Nashville that take you to whimsical outdoor settings. And this glass house with beautiful plants in Madison is the epitome of outdoor whimsy! It’s a 12′ x 20′ handcrafted glass and wood structure that helps you create beautiful natural light portraits. The interior of the glass house boasts lush live plants, string lights, and a chandelier for decorative elements.

Lay out some colorful floor cushions to prop up the baby and maybe include mom to keep baby safe and sound!

Check out what a Peerspace user shared after hosting their family shoot here: “This location was stunning. The plants are well loved and taken care of and the boho aesthetic was spot on. We got pictures done in the pouring rain and aside from a bit of a muddy walk to the Glass House it was perfect! Emily was such a pleasure to work with. She responds very quickly and was more than accommodating for our family.”

4. Get some classic baby-crawling-across-patterned-rug shots at this unique stone home in East Nashville

This unique stone home in East Nashville is a feast for the eyes and a popular location for more creative photoshoots in general. When it comes to your baby photoshoot, we think you should utilize the living space that boasts sofas, plush chairs, and uniquely patterned rugs. The leopard-print rug in particular would be an adorable spot for you to capture the baby playing and crawling, so be sure to have mom bring some of their favorite toys to enhance the shoot!

“Alisha’s home is beautiful in every way,” shares a helpful Peerspace reviewer of this stone home. “So many options every direction you look. It was perfect for our photo shoot, and Alisha was very prompt at communication and a wonderful host. Great experience all around.”

5. Manifest their future academic excellence with a shoot at Shirley the blue school bus

As you’ve already seen, there are some truly unique spaces for baby photoshoot ideas in Nashville. And one of our favorites is Shirley the blue school bus in Smyrna! It’s a classic kids’ school bus that the host has revamped with a fun and colorful boho interior and bright blue exterior, which your little one is sure to love! There’s also plenty of soft, lush lawn beside the bus and a fun lawn flamingo display, too. You can take photos inside and outside the bus, with your little one making positive associations with school buses long before they even have to ride one to school in the near future!

The host is a photographer and her photo studio is available for you to use as a staging ground for your school bus shoot, with climate-controlled changing rooms and more for your clients to relax in style.

6. Go wild at Nashville Zoo

Easily one of our favorite spots in Music City, Nashville Zoo is a wonderful place for shutterbugs of all varieties. Kids and adults alike come to life here, and it shows in their photos.

Between critter encounters and the wild and exciting jungle gym, you’ll be spoiled for choice. And everyone will have a good time along the way. Also, if you’re shooting with older kids, we recommend grabbing some shots on the carousel.

We just know artistic parents will fall in love with this spacious East Nashville home. It is an artist-inspired 1900 craftsman home filled with eclectic and vintage decor. We especially love the idea of hosting the baby shoot in the all-white sunroom that boasts colorful tile flooring and other decorative accents.

The host and her husband are both film industry vets who have designed an amazingly unique space here. They also offer you access to their Smoky & the Bandit 1980 Pontiac Firebird car too, if you sense your little one may grow up to be a car enthusiast or film buff.

A Peerspace user who booked this home for a photoshoot shares: “Awesome space with great natural light and a lot of options for various looks. Great location that was easy to get to as well. Angel was an amazing host and helped us feel comfortable in the space.”

8. Do something different with this contemporary boutique studio

Located in Germantown, this modern boutique photo studio was built for photographers. We mean that literally — the Vue studio space was made to create. The studio itself has a 15′ cyc wall, custom seamless backdrops, and natural lighting, but it also comes with an outdoor shooting space unique to Music City.

Vue is a cost-effective gem of a studio all portrait photographers would be lucky to shoot in at least once. And for a little extra, you can rent equipment, too.

“The space was just as described,” shares a Peerspace reviewer. “It was clean and multiple places to get shots. Working with Jarett was great, he was very friendly and responsive.”

Just because you’re always taking pictures doesn’t mean you can’t take more. Anyone with kids knows you can and you should. Adding a baby photoshoot to an album of maternity photoshoots, childhood memories, and eventually, even grad portraits is an irreplaceable thing to do.

Time passes faster than any of us realize, so snapping every moment really matters. And so we might as well do it in a gorgeous home or fancy, fully-equipped studio. Check out Peerspace to book the perfect one for you and your little one today.
