6. A designer home in East Hill
We don’t want to overwhelm you with musical options, but it is Nashville, after all. This venue is a fun maternity photoshoot idea that offers a “hi-end honky-tonk” theme. What does that mean? Well, the main living and dining area has a yellow piano and a stunning wood-paneled wall. The bedrooms are even more creative, with one room featuring colorful walls and artfully-arranged mirrors above each bed. Another bedroom has classic album covers lining the walls. But if you aren’t into the honky-tonk theme, that’s fine, too: the porch has a wooden rocking chair and bench and exterior brick walls for a more traditional look.
