3 Months Lifestyle Session I absolutely adore the fact that this little man is surrounded by 3 sisters that are totally smitten with him 24/7. This is Kairyn’s 3 months lifestyle session. I get to see this crew every 3 months, and I swear the amount of growth that happens in each child over a […]

Botanical Gardens Senior Session in Knoxville, TN Sometimes, things happen in your business that really show you your hard work is paying off.

Castleton Farms Sunset Engagement Session This is going on the eighth engagement session I have shot at Castleton Farms. So crazy to think this was a MAJOR goal of mine just two short years ago. The Disney family initially opened the door for me to build this relationship. Since then, it has flourished, and I’m […]

Rainy Downtown Knoxville Engagement Session You know how we had the best spring ever? It felt like the cool temperatures lasted for 2 months, and all the blooms came out in waves so they lasted the whole time. Then, there was a week of crazy spring showers where it was supposed to be beautiful, but […]

Two Month Photos Right at the beginning of the Phase 2 opening, I had the opportunity to go to Somerset, KY to take two month photos of a sweet little girl named Hazel. There’s no way I’m forgetting her name 😉. Her parents live in Boston but her grandparents live in Somerset. Since she was […]

Front Porch Elopement Katie and Rhett were scheduled to get married at The Press Room on May 23, 2020. Corona struck and they were postponed a couple months. It was stressful picking a day and lining up all of their vendors and having to do a Friday instead of a Saturday… and then the guidelines […]

Marblegate Engagement Wooooh you guys! I am totally obsessed with this Marblegate engagement session! It was a BLAST getting to know Laura Kate (LK) and Allister better. They kept me on my toes the entire time with their humor. Between each pose they would be cutting up, laughing, picking on each other, and as soon […]

The River Place Styled Shoot I don’t do a ton of styled shoots because of the whole time thing. It’s hard and takes a lot of time to basically plan a mini wedding. Lots of details, lots of coordinating, lots of time. In another season of life where I didn’t have two young kiddos, I […]

In Home Newborn Session I know the Parton family from church. When we joined their life group, someone else was the leader and Olivia was at one meeting before she went to have Sutton (baby #2). Fast forward several months and those leaders moved to China to be missionaries while Mitchell and Olivia took over […]

Backyard Elopement May 16th was their original date. They had planned it all out, we went to Gatlinburg for their engagement photos, and it was set to roll with all their favorite people in Pine Mountain State Park. And then Corona happened. Like you’ve heard dozens of times already. Like you’ve experienced for yourself probably. […]
