Ever since we had our first kiddo, we have a tradition. Every Mother’s Day, Ben drives us all up to Cades Cove for a picnic and he takes some photos of me and my babes. The outcome? Some of my favorite photos to date. So this year, I’m extending these special moments to you. On […]

Natural light. A chunky baby. Eclectic and old house. And a family dog. This makes for a lifestyle session that I will always love. And I can’t not blog about Supermom Brandin. Talk about strong momma…she delivered ALL NATURAL to a 10 lb baby Deacon. And she looks FLAWLESS. I wanted more than anything to […]

“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 […]
