Hayes Family Home I am so so so thankful for this family for so many reasons. First and foremost, Jason is the pastor at the church Dustin and I attend. When we lived in Nashville, we went to Crosspoint. It was a GIGANTIC church that planted other churches all the time. About a year before […]

Meads Quarry 9 Month Photos It’s so cool getting to photograph babies, but it’s even more cool when you know their moms. Me and this girl go way back. We grew up just miles from one another in Claxton. One of the tiniest communities ever. It’s in between Clinton and Powell, and I think it […]

Norris Dam State Park This is the second time I’ve been to Norris Dam State Park this year and gosh…it’s just so pretty. It’s a 30 minute drive for me coming from Fountain City, but every time I get there, it’s just so worth it! It’s funny, when we first moved to Knoxville from Nashville, […]

Knoxville Botanical Gardens One Year The Parrott family…you know them. They are fabulous and right in the middle of one of the craziest seasons of their life. When I asked them if it was calming down a little bit now that Hattie was getting older, they both started laughing. This is what I love about […]

UT Gardens Engagement Session When I first talked to Danielle & Tommy about doing engagement pictures, they weren’t totally sold. I think it was more Tommy really feeling like pictures were not his thing. It wasn’t two days later, and they ran into another photographer at a restaurant. It was Alison Cunningham with A&M Photography, […]

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 […]

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.

Studio work This little girl was born to love fresh florals. In case you didn’t know, she’s the daughter of the AMAZING Lesley Britt with LB Floral. I thought it was only fitting to include all my house plants in the first set of her 6 month studio pictures! When I say all my house […]

Volunteer Landing Please tell me HOOOOOOW this sweet girl is already 9 months old?!?!?! Mom and dad were married the day before yesterday, her newborn pics were yesterday and her 6 month pictures were two hours before this session. Obviously I’m exaggerating, but seriously, that’s what it feels like. It is incredible getting to watch […]

4 Months You always hear everyone say that when you have kids, time flies. In the blink of an eye they’re choosing colleges then getting married and before you know it, you’re a grandparent. But really… there is absolutely NO way to prepare yourself. Just like on wedding days, everyone will tell while you’re still […]
