Meads Quarry Engagement I have SUCH a crazy story behind this couple. Before I jump into their amazing Downtown Knoxville & Meads Quarry Engagement session, I want to share a bit about it. I think Morgan might have found me on Instagram… I can’t even remember. But as I was emailing back and forth with […]

Baxter Gardens Family Session Gosh… this family. I just love them to pieces. I met them at Baxter Gardens this past weekend to do some Baxter Gardens Family pictures for them. If you don’t remember, I photographed Abby’s newborn photos 6 months ago!! (WHAT?!? How has it been 6 months already??) And at the time, […]

Volunteer Landing & UT Gardens Senior Session There are a few areas around Knoxville that really thrive in the spring and UT Gardens is one of them. I met Melissa Black on The University of Tennessee’s campus to do a UT Gardens Senior session with her. She is graduating with her Bachelor’s in nursing from […]

Pizza Picnic When I got to meet with Maddie for the first time, I was asking her questions about her and Lee. Things like how they met, what the proposal was like, etc… When it came time to discuss the engagement session, I asked her, like I ask all my couples,¬†what are some things that […]

Cades Cove Wedding This was my first time shooting a Cades Cove wedding. This was actually my first time shooting a Great Smoky Mountains National Park wedding within the boundaries of the national park. But regardless, Cades Cove is a unique location in that it sits on an 11 mile one way loop that a […]

Jubilee Event Center You’ll remember a couple weeks ago I shared some images of Maggie & Zach under a blog titled “Just Married”. That’s because these two went and eloped then came back for me to take some pictures of them as “just married”. Now here, they are celebrating their marriage with all of their […]

Castleton Engagement Session I don’t know if you remember this couple, but I had another Castleton engagement session for them back in the¬†summer last year. They really had their hearts set (or Madeline had her heart set) on doing some boat engagement photos in the little pond at Castleton Farms but at the time, the […]

Charleston At the beginning of March, the day after Grayson’s first birthday party, we took a vacation to Charleston, SC. Dustin had a work event that he was having to attend and I decided to tag along and go see my cousin who lives out there. Grayson and I stayed on Daniel Island where my […]

Grayson’s First Year This blog post has been a long time coming. An entire year actually. Grayson was born on a Wednesday. And every single week for the last year, usually on Wednesday, sometimes on Thursday and once on a Sunday, we’ve done a little photo session. I’ve done a quick edit of the pictures, […]

Norris Dam Engagement Photos I have not shot Norris Dam Engagement Photos in yeeeeaaaars! Like literally, I was still living in Nashville the last time I did Norris Dam Engagement Photos. At that time the Grist Mill still had a little shop running out of the building, and the wheel was constantly turning water to […]

Alpine Village Chapel The Rosenthal family came down to Gatlinburg for a little weekend getaway. They are from Ohio and found me because I am shooting a coworker’s destination wedding in May! When we were initially trying to get the session booked, we kept missing each other. We literally took turns calling one another getting […]

Newborn Photographs Sweet baby Cooper was a very high maintenance baby in the womb. Not that it was his fault really, but in this pregnancy, Tiffany, a.k.a. mom, was on bed rest for majority of the pregnancy. It was really early on that she had contractions that the hospital gave her medicine to stop as […]

Knoxville Botanical Gardens 6 Month Session I want to provide a little encouragement for all the parents of colic-y babies out there. Meet Hannah Lloyd. This is her Knoxville Botanical Gardens 6 month session and she was colic. In case you are not a parent, colic is gastrointestinal issues in babies that make them super […]

Studio Newborn Photos This sweet precious little boy belongs to Angel and Drew Sims. Who I had the absolute pleasure of documenting as they said “I do” to one another at the Capitol Theatre a couple summers ago. They recently welcomed Elijah Sims into their family almost 6 weeks earlier than he should have come. […]
