Xavier and Melanie Anniversary Session

Xavier and Melanie traveled from Florida to Chattanooga for an Anniversary getaway. They hired me to capture them on their ten year milestone. Their love for each other was apparent as soon as I met them. They held hands, they held each other, they looked at one another with such love! We shot these in Downtown Chattanooga at the Walnut Street Bridge at midday.

Twila and Dru Engagement Session June 2019 Downtown Chattanooga Riverfront

I am so, so proud that Twila came to me for her engagement pictures. She and Dru needed engagement photos and they needed them quickly. They had one day available before they leave to go get married. We had a whirlwind of a day considering we started with a 90% chance of rain, which slowly diminished as the day went on. Eventually we were still able to shoot, and even caught a few in the rain.

Sarah and Brandon in Downtown Chattanooga, Midday Summer 2019 Session

Sarah and Brandon traveled to Chattanooga from Kentucky to spend some time visiting her family. Even though this was my first time meeting them both, it felt a lot like hanging out with old friends.We laughed and joked and tried to find patches of shade to hide from the harsh sun in! These midday sessions are turning out to be some of my favorites, the colors are so crisp and I am really loving the shadows and contrast!

Caldwell Family Spring Sunset Portrait Session in Jasper, TN

Crystal brings her boys to see me a few times a year, and every time I try and talk her into having family portraits made. I tell her it’s her turn to step in front of the camera.

I had never met these two before. Alexandria reached out to me after finding my work online to book me for her and Brent’s engagement pictures. I am so glad that she did. They are both so sweet and were easy as pie to work with. But most importantly, they are truly in love. They fell into natural poses and held each other close.

Nicole and Stanley's Limited Edition Session in Downtown South Pittsburg

Limited Edition Sessions are short sessions that include a smaller amount of pictures. I started offering them this year to clients who may not need a full session, or only need a handful of images. Nicole has mentioned a few times about wanting to come to me for pictures, and I am so glad she finally did! This was a really easy session.

Brynna Hamilton Sunset Family Session January 2019

I had never met Brynna and Dennis before our session. So I was very excited to meet them and their children. As we started shooting my (very) expensive 70-200 lens DIED. I was confused and I have to be honest, it threw me for a minute. I panicked. I don’t know why, maybe just because I’m a panicky person. BUT I recovered pretty quickly, I threw on my 35mm and settled back into my session. Brynna and her family are SO much fun. They’re warm and welcoming. It was really easy to capture the dynamics of their family.

Ellis Maternity and Family Session

Phew! Let me tell you, the world conspired against us on getting this session done. I know it rained once, maybe sickness was the second reason, at this point I can’t remember. But it took us several reschedules to get this session. Because we were literally just out of time (she was going to have the baby!) we wound up having to shoot mid-day, which is not ideal so far as the light goes, BUT if you come to a professional photographer they will know how to make the light work in your favor. This set is BEAUTIFUL. Megan is always gorgeous. Her husband and sweet boys are just so much fun. I especially love the last image, in the whirlwind that comes with having your third boy, I wanted to capture something creatively that shows how fast life moves.

Lauren Pelham Fall 2018 Limited Edition Session

So Lauren started coming to see me this year. She came this time with her mother Angie, her boyfriend Tim and their two boys Landon and Braylen. FIRST I feel compelled to be honest and let you know that Landon wanted ZERO (nothing, nada) to do with me. He just didn’t realize how fast I am!

But other than that little bump the entire rest of the session was a breeze. Who knows, maybe next time Landon will like me? Braylen, tell him how cool I am. Thanks!

Kelly Family

This session was SO special to me. For the following reasons: Tia and her beautiful family have been coming to me for Fall Portraits since Adrian was a little baby. Tia was right on the precipice of graduating with her bachelor’s degree as an elementary school teacher. They brought Tia’s mother Tina and her nephew Man AND they brought Tyler’s parents too! Tyler’s mother was my third grade teacher. AND THE BIGGEST REASON WHY THIS WAS SPECIAL: Tia was a few weeks along expecting a sweet new baby and it was still a secret!!
