Valerie & John Carter | Mommy & Me Session

and she loved a little boy very, very much – even more than she loved herself. –Shel Silverstein

I have been holding onto this sweet Mommy & Me session for a little while now, waiting on the birthday boy to open his surprise. Since she has now shared the images with her husband, I will excitedly share away! haha.

These two are no strangers to my camera. In fact, Valerie’s maternity session was the first session in my studio in late 2013, followed by John Carter’s newborn session in early 2014! I was so happy when she contacted me to book her Mommy & Me Session. It is no secret that these sessions hold a special place in my heart. Mothers tend to stay behind the scenes, documenting their family’s memories from behind the camera. You need to exist in photos. You need to leave behind memories of yourself as your children grow & for future generations. Don’t let them open up a photo album in search of a photo of you only to find none.

We spent a little time in the studio that day – chatting, laughing, catching up…there may have been a couple of touchdown dances thrown in there as well. lol! And I simply adore the images we captured.

Valerie – Thank you so much for allowing me to capture the bond between you & John Carter! Come back to visit us soon.

I would love to document this sweet time in your life with a Mommy & Me Studio Session!

Bo is One | Knoxville TN Baby Photographer

I love the friendships that I develop with my clients. It is easily one of my favorite aspects of my job. I especially love when they find themselves in front of my camera again!

Bo was an adorable squishy newborn last time I photographed him. Little man is growing up quickly, as all babies do, & has the absolute sweetest smile & personality! You would have never guessed that he refused to nap on 1.5 hour trip up to my studio.

Look at that sweet face…such a handsome boy!

Kristi & Jason – thank you so much for driving up to the studio for Bo’s one year session & bringing Ace for a visit! I loved working with you all again & look forward to seeing you again soon.

I would love to document your baby’s special milestone with a session in studio or on location!

The Mantlo Family | Knoxville TN Family Photography

Another session from last fall – still playing catch up, but this was the last one before taking some time off for Christmas.
And it was a very special session! Tracy, a senior at UT, wanted to surprise her beautiful mom with a family session for Christmas. How sweet is that?! Add in her dad, who is HUGE UT fan (Go Vols!!) & two adorable dogs…well, it was awesome!
We spent some time walking around campus & down to the World’s Fair Park area. It was a beautiful day, & the company was fantastic!

Thank you all for allowing me to capture your family! What a sweet & thoughtful gift from a wonderful young lady. I know you all are proud of her & all of her accomplishments!

Sweet Porter | Knoxville TN Studio Newborn Photography

Remember when I promised to share Porter’s newborn studio session when I blogged his sweet parents’ maternity session? Well, here it is! Better late than never, right?! So hard to believe, but Porter will be 6 months old in a few days! Time waits for no one, & I find myself noticing just how quickly it passes by more & more lately.

I mentioned in their maternity session post just how sweet & amazing these two parents are. You can feel the love they have for one another & for their new baby boy through their session images! I always enjoy having them in my studio.

but there once was a day
It was grey in a world without you”
