Island Home Airport Engagement Session I love airplanes, I love traveling, and I think I was MEANT to photograph this couple for so many reasons. 1) Their names are Devin and Delaney. I have two sisters-in-law named Devin and Dylana (pronounced the same except “uh” at the end instead of “ee”). 2) I am JUST […]

Spring Wedding at Castleton Okay… so when I say spring wedding at Castleton Farms, I really mean spring-ish. One of the things that I love most about Castleton is that they have very few landscaping designs that look dead in the winter. This wedding was this past weekend, March 7th. I would not necessarily consider […]

A Fresh 48 and Newborn session This blog post is going to be a little bit unique in that I combined two different sessions into one post because they happened so close together. Baby Kai was born the Friday before last. He was welcomed into the world by his parents and three sisters with a […]

Winter Engagement at Melton Hill Park If you have ever been introduced to me or been the person who introduces me to someone else, you’ve heard me say I’m bad with names. I am the world’s worst. I want to think it’s because there are 900 things coursing through my head at any given time […]

Castleton Farms Wedding Caity and Kaleb’s Castleton Farms wedding was my first back for the season. Every year for the past 6 or 7 years, I’ve had a January wedding. This year I didn’t, and I just know in my bones it’s because God knew I needed a long break for our move. Not to […]

Newborn Photos of Sarah Ruth You know, sometimes you meet people that you just click with. You can talk for 2 minutes, and you find at least 15 things you have in common. It happened this week to a couple we showed our house to. No, it’s not back on the market, but they found […]

Urban Engagement at The Pharmacy It’s not every day I get asked to take a film picture for one of my couples. Or that I am working with a photographer to shoot his engagement photos. For Houston and Christina, however, this was the case at their urban engagement session at The Pharmacy. When we arrived […]

Knox County Courthouse Wedding This is the second courthouse wedding I’ve gotten to shoot this month and I just love it. If having the big wedding isn’t for you… then don’t do it. It’s not for everyone and that is a-okay! You will still get all the feels and all the emotions when it’s just […]

Maternity Session for the Burton Family Since we photograph the Burton family in their bedroom at home for all their sessions, I really like to challenge myself to get a few different looking images every session.

Okay. Can we just talk about how GORGEOUS the children in this lifestyle session are???? Tristan and Brandon make some pretty kids. And Willow (the little girl) has the most amazing hair color I’ve ever seen and yes… it is natural. I would say Southern (oldest boy) is the ham of the family. He likes […]

Knox County Courthouse Wedding I’ve shot a Knox County Courthouse Wedding before, but there is one way that this one was a little bit different. In the past, I’ve photographed the ceremony, followed by some family photos and bride and groom photos around downtown. Leah and Tony did that as well, but at the end, […]
