Okay, so the Vols won but not in the way we all wanting…can I get an amen? But the next day changed my outlook. I had the experience of a lifetime the other day with Jessica and Chase. We got to step on the field of the Neyland Stadium and it was a pretty awesome […]

My alarm clock went off at 4AM and to be honest, I was up before then. I kept waking up throughout the night hoping and praying I wouldn’t sleep through my alarm. I don’t do sunrise sessions often because who wants to do photos at 7am? Michelle and Justin! They recently moved to Chattanooga and […]

Something I’ve learned about this weather lately…just go for it! We’ve had a chance of thunderstorms so many weeks for the last month and it is DRIVING ME CRAZY! It’s been so iffy that I had no idea if it would really storm or rain or hail or whatever! So when Chelsea and Tyler’s engagement […]

“Be truly glad. There is wonderful JOY ahead!.” 1 Peter 1:6 (NLT) I read these words last August soon after I left the bank and pursued photography full time. God started stirring something deep in my heart. I started seeing my work change dramatically and fast. Business was going full speed and I couldn’t get […]

Like many of my clients, Samantha and Aaron met at the University of Tennessee but they fell in love in London and now live in Texas. To say they have travelled together is an understatement. But they wanted to come back to their roots to photograph where it all started…in Knoxville. This is the kind […]

Tennessee in the Springtime- hubba, hubba! Emily and Derrick were the perfect couple to show off these beautiful blooms. One of the reasons why I require an engagement session with every wedding story package is so I can get to know the two of you in front of my camera before the big day. Well, […]

I’m absolutely loving this Spring in East Tennessee. And I’m having the perfect couples help me show it off. Kris and Rachel’s session was so much fun. Not only because they’re great people but I’ve known these two for a long time. I graduated from high school with Kris and we had several classes together. […]

More than just offering something to pose on rather than grass, quilts have a deeper meaning for me. Not only do they had lots of bright colors, but they had a piece of history and heart. When I first started out, my dear grandma passed away. Between that and a few other storms I was […]

Monograms, burlap, and cowboy boots. These are a few of Jessica’s favorite things. But at their engagement session, it was pretty clear that Ethan was at the top of her list. One thing I love about doing Cades Cove sessions is bonding even more with my clients. It’s always been a goal of mine to […]

I will always remember this session for three reason: 1. Coldest session I’ve ever done to date. 2. Lowest lighting shoot I’ve ever done. 3. Walt and Alicia were the toughest couple to date. This is one of those sessions where I’m glad I didn’t have a second shooter to capture behind the scenes photos. […]
