Maypop Fields Family Session This season of Coronavirus has really opened the doors for me to shoot more portrait sessions than I normally would this time of year. All of the rescheduled weddings have freed up some time, and last week, I got to photograph a Maypop Fields family session for a visiting group from […]

Vineyard Wedding at Castleton Mikia and Wes chose their August 1st wedding date from the beginning.

When I met up with them to do their engagement photos, I asked […]

Rainy Marblegate Farm Engagement The beginning of this rainy Marblegate Farm engagement session kicked off with some thundering in the distance and a light sprinkle. The awesome part is Koree and Connor were so flexible as we obsessively watched the weather to make sure it would be a pretty evening. It was a gorgeous all […]

Rainy Wedding at Hunter Valley Farm The week before the wedding, Whitney reached out to me, and said, “I’m so worried it’s going to rain.” I didn’t even have to look at the forecast to reassure Whitney that even if it does rain, she’s at one of the BEST venues to handle it. I love […]

In Home Newborn Every single time Hazel wakes up in the middle of the night, I curse a little, and then, I swear off any more children in our future. It would be one thing if she couldn’t sleep through the night yet. For example, if she were an infant still. But she can, and […]

Melton Hill Senior Session On July 3rd, I met Tori for her Melton Hill senior session. We had 6 straight days of thick, heavy clouds with random rain showers and ugly weather, and then, there was July 3rd. This BEAUTIFUL sunny day that was a bit warm but so perfect. Of course, Melton Hill Park […]

Dinosaur Newborn Session You might be thinking…wait, did I read that right? DINOSAUR?? And the answer is yes. You’ll soon see why I added that little surprising word in there, but it comes from Charleston’s big brother, Ryder. When I first came into his home, he was a little skeptical of me. He was quiet […]

The Studio at Fountain City 1 Year Old Session I have known Claudia for a long time! We connected through the wedding industry years ago. She does hair and owns her own salon. She has now added mommy to her very long list of impressive skills, and I got to have Lachlan over for his […]

In-Home Newborn Session with Edie Brown Ummm…I love this in-home newborn session for so many more reasons than just that Edie was a literal angel baby and slept magically from start to finish. First, Lauren (mama) introduced me to a new side of Blount County that I have since fallen in love with. This littler […]

AMP Branding Session for Scruffy City Letters During quarantine, when ALL of my weddings were either postponed or rescheduled, I started brainstorming other revenue streams that did not put all of my eggs into one basket. The bulk of AMP income comes from large events that are basically impossible to social distance at and always […]

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 […]

Castleton Farms Wedding Let’s do a quick bullet point summary of this Castleton Farms Wedding: Gorgeous. Beautiful. Stunning. Incredible. Yup…that about sums it up ha. For real, I am so thankful these two (and the state of TN) didn’t require their wedding to postpone because of COVID. This was the first big, full reception wedding […]
