Spout Springs Vineyard Family Session It has been a long time since I got to spend some quality time with these two. Brad and Kari got married at the Smithview Pavilion back in 2015. Their wedding was the first wedding that I ever shot at Smithview, and when I arrived, I was blown away with […]

Melton Hill Park Sunrise Session I was introduced to Melton Hill Park at sunset earlier this year when my virtual assistant had me come there to take her family’s pictures!

Meads Quarry 1 Year Old Session This little girl had her very own Meads Quarry 1 year old session last week, and she basically killed it. She was walking around pretty good, smiling like crazy, clapping nonstop, and wanting to put every single rock in her mouth. About half way through the session, I had […]

Meads Quarry Family Session Family sessions before kids are a lot like engagement sessions. Engagement sessions are always some of my favorite sessions because I get so much time with the couple. They are dressed in outfits that they love and give them confidence. We choose a location that they love. I get to take […]

Chattanooga Newborn Session On Labor Day weekend, Dustin, Grayson and I took a trip south for a Chattanooga newborn session. It was on Labor Day so Dustin had the day off of work, and I thought it would serve as a GREAT excuse to take Grayson to the Chattanooga Aquarium. This super sweet family lives […]

Deerfield Resort Family Session Have you ever heard of Deerfield Resort in LaFollette, TN? I’m going to guess probably not. I hadn’t either, but woah, baby. It’s SOOOO stinking pretty. It’s about 45 minutes from the interstate, as far off the LaFollette exit as possible, and it has a view of Norris Lake on either […]

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 […]

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.
