4 Months You always hear everyone say that when you have kids, time flies. In the blink of an eye they’re choosing colleges then getting married and before you know it, you’re a grandparent. But really… there is absolutely NO way to prepare yourself. Just like on wedding days, everyone will tell while you’re still […]

Concord Park Goodness. This family. I just love them to death. We met yesterday morning bright and early at Concord Park to take maternity pictures slash family pictures with beautiful sunrise light. The good part, is that there was sunshine present after we week of rainy cloudiness, the bad part was that it was pretty […]

WindRiver Wedding Maureen contacted me a couple months ago about photographing her second wedding to the same man. As I type that, I know what most of you are thinking because I know how society labels this kind of thing. But you guys. Maureen and Doug have a beautiful love story written by none other […]

Intimate Wedding I’ve gotten the opportunity to shoot more small, intimate weddings this year than ever before. As much as I love the big huge weddings that start in the wee morning hours and dance the night away, my heart has a different place for these intimate weddings. The tiny little details, the untraditional wedding […]

6 Months OLD!!!!! I made a connection with Ann in a really hilarious way that I just have to share. Ann was a bridesmaid in one of my September 2017 weddings. I arrived to the wedding before the girls started getting hair and makeup done and introduced myself to everyone. This group of girls was […]

Lifestyle Family Session There is this thing called Lifestyle Photography that a lot of people don’t really understand. Lifestyle photography is less about the poses and perfect smiles and more about the real, everyday interactions you have between each other in your own home. When a family books a lifestyle session with me, I ask […]

2017 Favorite Weddings I don’t know if you remember last year at this time. But I was drowning. We had just purchased a SECOND house that we were flipping, I was 36 weeks pregnant, I was neck deep in editing that I hadn’t finished from December, trying to get all my taxes in order, finish […]

2017 Favorite Portraits 2017 brought so many amazing, exciting opportunities. I got to take some 2017 favorite portraits in the Smoky Mountains, at the Grand Tetons just outside of Jackson Hole, of a big sister meeting her baby brother for the very first time, over 14 newborn sessions, 2 proposals, in the snow, in the […]

Jackson Hole and Grand Tetons Back in September, I had the opportunity to photograph a wedding at the base of the Grand Tetons just outside of Jackson Hole, WY. You can see that wedding here! We arrived a little early and stayed a little later and made a mini vacation out of it. So instead […]

AMP Studio This past weekend I had the absolute pleasure of photographing little Hayes turning 1!!!! I met his mom and dad through a wedding that I shot back in the summer. When I showed up at the wedding, Taylor made me feel like we had been friends forever as we found so many things […]

Ramble Creek Wedding I’ve watched other photographers post Ramble Creek Wedding photos and I’ve just ooh’d and aaah’d over them as I patiently waited for Mariah and Mitchell’s wedding to roll around. When it finally got here, I arrived an hour earlier than planned because I was so stinking excited to finally be getting to […]

Unicorn Newborn Session I was walking the aisles in Target right before Christmas, because lets face it, that place is on every single girls’ Christmas to do list, when I spotted this amazingly adorable crocheted unicorn newborn hat. The day before, Whitley had told me that she was being induced even earlier than originally planned […]

Cumberland Falls Engagement I attended a tiny little college in Williamsburg, KY. It was 30 minute away from this gem they call Cumberland Falls. I went a couple times while I was in school but could not grasp how incredible it was until I moved away… of course. It’s funny how that happens isn’t it? […]

Holston Hills I’ve shot a couple weddings at Holston Hills before. And I’ve always thought it was a gorgeous venue. But I hadn’t been there since the fall of 2017 and when I showed up for Kari and Stefan’s wedding, I was thoroughly impressed with the renovations they had completed. In particular, the new front […]
