There are things in life that when you’re doing them you wonder why then afterwards the joy they bring makes it all worth it.  Things like giving birth or having glitter thrown ALL over your studio.  Just as I’m starting to question my sanity, these excited little people show up at my studio and light […]

The last 18 months have been unlike anything we could have imagined in our wildest dreams. The world as we knew it changed in a blink of an eye. For many kids in our area they left school on a Friday for Spring Break and didn’t return for over a year.  School is still very […]

COVID derailed a lot of things for many of us, including birthdays.  Birthday became a bit of a mess but luckily little ones don’t notice when birthday pictures are a little late.  Two years ago before COVID hit we celebrated Bowen’s 1st birthday on time with absolutely adorable birthday bath photos and cake he didn’t love.

I absolutely love to photograph red heads like Grace from Sissonville High School. During the session inevitably I’ll end up telling a story about my own little red head at home and my client’s mom will declare that she did the same thing at my daughter’s age.

It was a bumpy year for the students at Roane County High School including my absolutely stunning client, Payton.  The year began  with losing one of their beloved fellow students during a football game, then ended with Coronavirus.  Unfair doesn’t begin to cover the situation. Despite the cloudy days Payton always seems to have a […]

We started Nitro High School senior Madison’s senior sessions the end of last summer when it was sunny, happy and the year seemed like it held nothing but possibilities. We excitedly discussed how her prom dress would look and where we’d go for pictures in the spring.  Little did we know the spring would not […]

This year my heart aches as I am sharing some of my favorite images from the past year: my senior sessions.  Usually this time of year I blog about the deep connections we built during the spring of senior year from senior sessions, prom session and finally ending the year with graduation minis.  Often my […]
