Newborn Session with Liam I was welcomed into the Ensworth home last week to photograph sweet little Liam’s newborn session. This baby, ya’ll. He was a complete and total angel. Even when they changed his clothes he didn’t make a peep. He was passed out sleeping for the entire thing, and even when their pup […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Knoxville Newborn Session You never know what someone is going through. This couple tried to get pregnant for 10.5 years. They went through SO much. From surgeries to medical menopause to fertility drugs to IUIs to acupuncture to IVF. When they reached out to me at the beginning of April, I was not accepting any […]
