Dana and I had such a hard time nailing down the perfect date for these. You see, all three of her boys play baseball, so their schedules are extra tight! We finally had an opportunity to take them. The weather was great, the sunshine was golden, and it was an easy session.Read More
Gerry reached out to me wanting to schedule a session for him and his daughter Ansley. They were traveling to Chattanooga from Nashville for the weekend and wanted some fun, candid shots to document their vacation. When they first arrived, Ansley was being shy and hiding behind her daddy’s back. She came out of her shell pretty quickly when I started talking about adventure. We started at the Walnut Street Bridge and walked down to the Passageway, we got our feet wet and then made our way back to the Ice Cream Show for a snack to cool down with.Read More
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.Read More
Terry booked his experience as a surprise for his wife Hope. They were traveling to Chattanooga in May as a weekend getaway. After having their pictures made, they were headed to stay in a streamline rv in Ooltewah on a working farm. I don’t know about you but to me, this sounds like a wonderful weekend!Read More
Jessica and Aaron and their two sweet babies Brantley and Addison wanted a carnival session. We had one scheduled for the National Cornbread Festival and poor Brantley was diagnosed with the FLU a day before!! Fortunately, there was another carnival coming close by to Valley Fest in Dunlap, TN. We were able to reschedule. Brantley had a blast riding rides! Addison wasn’t too happy because there was only one ride they would let her on, but towards the end we got her some cotton candy and she was in heaven!Read More
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:Read More
Debbi and I have been friends since high school. And ever since she started her family I have been capturing their milestones. I cannot believe how big her children have gotten this year. Darien is so tall, Ronan is less of a baby and more of a child, and just look at how big Felicity is. They are the sweetest and I love when I get to catch up with them!Read More
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.Read More
Jonathan’s mother D’Anne booked this session and had a very unique set of ideas to make sure his Senior Portraits stood out from the crowd. It all came together perfectly and I’m pretty sure even Jonathan had a good time. He brought his cap & gown, his truck, his puppy and his gun.Read More
Sherrie and John asked to have their engagement portraits taken in Sewanee, TN. I love shooting at the University of the South. It’s romantic and whimsical and really feels like you’re at a castle. And these two are perfectly in love.Read More
Destiny’s mother and I went to high school together. Destiny is fun and carefree. She wasn’t neccesarily too excited about Senior Portraits but she was willing to have them made for her mom. She wanted something different and brought smoke bombs to her session! So much fun!!Read More
Christian came to see me for his Senior Portraits and we took them in Jasper, TN. He was SO quiet! But very sweet and very respectful. We took a few pictures in the woods, and a few of him by his car.Read More
This session with Olivia is definitely different than my usual sessions. You see Olivia was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, was treated for it, and subsequently beat it. Her positive outlook and strength were an inspiration to so many. We did this session as a way of expressing her freedom. Below I am going to attach a her story that she wrote:Read More
When Tracie, Chris, Jake and Jared came to see me, Tracie asked if it was was ok to bring their puppy Mally. I always love when people bring along their dogs so of course I told her yes! This pup, was literally the most well behaved and smartest dogs I have ever been around. I was incredibly impressed by how well trained she is. ANYWAYS, back to the humans - This family is so sweet. So kind. And this session was a breeze.Read More
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.Read More
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.Read More
This was my first time meeting Julie and Michael. I absolutely love meeting new clients, and this session was no different. These two were just awesome to get to know. They are funny and playful and so much fun. We took all of these in Downtown Chattanooga on the Southside.Read More
I have been a member of Clickin Moms for a while now. But just haven’t really jumped in yet. I decided this is the year I need to really start shooting more for me. It’s been far too long since I picked up my camera with no expectations. So I joined in a P52. For those of you who don’t know, that’s short for Project 52 and it means you take at least one image a week for an entire year.
I really wanted to take on a P365, but I know with my client workload, I realistically wouldn’t be able to keep up. So here we are, I joined in late, but that’s ok. You can start whenever you’d like. This week’s assignment was to submit a Black and White Landscape Photograph. TRICKY doesn’t even begin to cover it.
I am not a landscape photographer (but gosh, I admire those who are!!). And I am also not even sure this qualifies as a landscape image (lol)! But I LOVE it. I stepped outside my comfort zone, and got to use a skill I don’t often get to use (long exposure photography). I hope you enjoy this! I’ll add my images each week.Read More
Max turned one right at the beginning of January! I have known Mandy, Max’s mom, since I was a little girl and I’ve been photographing their family for so long I felt right at home. It was SO HARD to narrow down a preview from all of the images. These are a few of my favorites though.
If you are having a birthday party and want to really be present (and not stuck behind a cell phone or camera) the whole time, then I highly recommend hiring a photographer for your child’s day.Read More
