Emilee and Tiffany Dalton State College Graduation Session May 2019

I’ve known Emilee for a long time now. I shot her youngest son’s newborn session, she has modeled for me, then I shot their vow renewal last year. So when she contacted me about documenting her and her best friend’s graduation from college at Dalton State, of course I said yes! This session was way easy, except for the mosquitoes that nearly carried us away! Both of these women are so amazing. They worked SO hard, raising kids and going to school at the same time.

Collier Extended Family Session April 2019 in Jasper, Tennessee

One day in April Katie contacted me to schedule a family session for her entire extended family. She and her husband and daughter, her sister, and two nephews, and her brother were coming in from Colorado and Wyoming. She wanted all of their pictures made with their mother, Pam and their grandmother. Let me tell you, this was a wonderful experience for me. A truly warm and loving family and I am grateful to have met them all! And Katie posted an awesome review that I am going to share below:

Hannah Senior RHMS 2019 Senior in South Pittsburg, TN

It’s always so weird to take senior portraits when it’s a child you’ve known for a long time! Hannah has become such a beautiful young woman. She’s kind and sweet and funny too. We took the first half of her senior portraits at Richard Hardy High School, and the second half we took on Main Street in Downtown South Pittsburg.

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. FINALLY she booked me for a family session. Her and Josh and the boys, Will and Coleman. And we did back to back sessions, their family, then her two boys and her nephews.

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.

Abby-Lynn and Landon on Courthouse Square in Jasper, TN

I’ll just start by saying I LOVE the entire Jordan family, and I love seeing them grow and change. Abby-Lynn came to me with her boyfriend Landon for a quick Limited Edition Session. It was FREEZING that day, literally freezing and windy and miserable, but these two powered through.

Hoschar and Shankles Christmas 2018 Family Session

I have photographed Anna and Luke at least 934378434 times. And it’s no secret that I LOVE THEM. The Shankles family is so much fun. Rachel asked if we could do a session in her home this time, very lifestyle, and include her sister in law and nephew and nieces. I am pretty sure my response was “OF COURSE WE CAN”. So we lit a fire, took pictures of the kids in jammies and then took a few of Jesi’s kids outside. I fell equally in love with them!! We celebrated Jesi expecting her fifth child. A big congratulations to the Hoschar family!

Lawrence Family Fall Session

I love this sweet little family. This is my third year shooting their Fall Portraits. So I’ve gotten to grow right along with Walker. The very first thing I learned about him three years ago is that he will let me take amazing images of him, but on his terms, and I have to follow his lead. Which is fine by me, most kids his age are the same way. I have loved getting to know his parents too. Marc and Leigh are such genuinely kind people. Here are a few of my favorites from their session.

Jordan was out of town for this Limited Edition Session. So it was Mandy, Xavier and baby Max for this one. It’s CRAZY to me how fast these two kids are growing! I’ve been photographing them for a few years now and this little family is so special to me.

PS: Can we just take a minute to really appreciate how GLORIOUS the colors are here? I mean WOW!

Gibson & Shadwick Family Fall 2018

Meshelle reached out to me after seeing my session with the Provencio Family. She wanted me to capture her side too. I am so glad that she did! It was her and her son, his wife and their two boys. The colors were -optimal- for Fall portraits. The sun was golden and soft and I was able to get each personality captured in just the right way.
