The Studio at Fountain City Newborn Session I may not be renting The Studio at Fountain City out to other photographers yet…thanks, covid…but I am using it myself!

Hope Resource Fundraiser I was sitting at my desk when I got the email telling me that the fundraising dinner for Hope Resource Center was canceled this year due to Coronavirus. Since it’s an annual event that happens in the spring every year, postponing wasn’t going to work. They decided to move it to a […]

Sunset Engagement at Castleton Farms I shot a wedding that guests were actually able to attend the weekend following Brittany and Michael’s sunset engagement session at Castleton.

3 Months Lifestyle Session I absolutely adore the fact that this little man is surrounded by 3 sisters that are totally smitten with him 24/7. This is Kairyn’s 3 months lifestyle session. I get to see this crew every 3 months, and I swear the amount of growth that happens in each child over a […]

Botanical Gardens Senior Session in Knoxville, TN Sometimes, things happen in your business that really show you your hard work is paying off.

Castleton Farms Sunset Engagement Session This is going on the eighth engagement session I have shot at Castleton Farms. So crazy to think this was a MAJOR goal of mine just two short years ago.

Rainy Downtown Knoxville Engagement Session You know how we had the best spring ever? It felt like the cool temperatures lasted for 2 months, and all the blooms came out in waves so they lasted the whole time. Then, there was a week of crazy spring showers where it was supposed to be beautiful, but […]

Two Month Photos Right at the beginning of the Phase 2 opening, I had the opportunity to go to Somerset, KY to take two month photos of a sweet little girl named Hazel. There’s no way I’m forgetting her name 😉. Her parents live in Boston but her grandparents live in Somerset. Since she was […]

Front Porch Elopement Katie and Rhett were scheduled to get married at The Press Room on May 23, 2020. Corona struck and they were postponed a couple months.
