Old North Knoxville I was running through Old North Knoxville one day and came across these beauties. Have I mentioned how much I love this city???

East Ivy Mansion Wedding I lived in Nashville for two years before moving back to Knoxville. While I was there, I worked hard at building my photography business not knowing how long we would be in Nashville. All that time though, and I never had the opportunity to shoot a East Ivy Mansion Wedding. Partly […]

Historic Westwood Bridal Portraits These Historic Westwood Bridal portraits are some of my favorites. I’ve actually taken bridal portraits in this same location before, and I loved it so much that I referred Leslie to them. They are absolutely so awesome to work with and they let you take furniture outside, move things off the […]

Adair Park This family is incredible. I met them down at Adair Park at 8 am for a mini family session last week. As I started culling the photos, I realized something. I have started taking pictures of children totally different than what I used to. It’s funny how situations and circumstances change the way […]

Flower Truck These vintage flower trucks are quickly becoming one of my favorite things. I photographed Charlotte and Andrew’s wedding a year ago.
