Eight | Knoxville TN Children Photographer

So many thoughts & feelings overcome me when I think of my sweet little miss turning eight. Time stops for no one. It just keeps passing by at the speed of light. And when we least expect it, it takes us by complete surprise. Gone are the days of chubby baby legs & cheeks, of “momma, hold me please” with arms stretched as far up as they could reach, & of playing with little people for hours on end.

I have come to realize that although we may long for those younger years at times, each age has its own set of new & exciting adventures. I do love seeing her look back at me with a wave as she walks into dance class or her sweet smile when I pick her up from school. Those little reminders that she does still need me, even if not in the same ways as before.

Her heart is filled with love for others. She adores her little brother. Family time is her favorite. She loves to read & despises math (a girl after her momma’s heart – lol!). Dancing & outside playtime are at the top of her list. And she still has that sweet, sassy spunk that I hope she never outgrows. I am so blessed to call her mine.

Mommy & Me Studio Sessions | Knoxville TN Family Photographer

“Being a mother means that your heart is no longer yours; it wanders wherever your children do.”
– Unknown

Why Mommy & Me Sessions?

Because when was the last time you stepped in front of a camera with your children? When was the last time you allowed the focus to fall on YOU? Mothers tend to stay behind the scenes, documenting their family’s memories from the back of a 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.

Mommy & Me Studio Sessions sessions are designed to capture the connection, emotion, & love between mama & her sweet babies. Lets face it – they will always be our babies. Even so, they are only this little once. Let’s capture it…snuggling, laughing, & playing with you! These limited edition sessions will be held at my studio on select dates in April – you can choose in studio or in my field (weather permitting). With such a limited number of these sessions available, I highly recommend contacting me as soon as possible to book your preferred date.

We, as moms, need to step out from behind the camera & into the frame with those that we love with every ounce of ourselves.

Exist in photos.

Handsome Porter | Knoxville TN Baby Photographer

This handsome little man & his sweet parents are seriously some of my favorites! We have worked together multiple times – maternity, newborn, & for Porter’s 6 month session, which if you could not tell, was not recently. He is now over a year old & sadly, in another state. While I miss them being here in East Tennessee, I know that they are enjoying life closer to their families. And even though this post is beyond overdue at this point, I simply could not let it go without sharing!

We met up at the Knoxville Botanical Garden on a beautiful June (yes, JUNE!) afternoon to document his 6 month milestone with a Simplicity Session. As you can see, he is the happiest little boy ever! So smiley & super cute. I think he may have enjoyed being thrown up in the air a few times, as well. haha!

Do these images not just make you long for spring to arrive?!

Sweet Adeline | Knoxville TN Newborn Photographer

It has been a couple of months since I met this beautiful baby girl & her sweet family, but every time I look at their images, my heart becomes instantly happy. I do not think anyone could look at these & not feel the love that these new parents feel for their perfect little Adeline. It is simply impossible.

Add in a beautiful heirloom quilt, a handmade wooden table, & Adeline’s two very well behaved furry brothers, & this in home newborn session was that much more special!

Brad & Mallory – Thank you so much for welcoming me into your home & for allowing me to capture this amazing time in your lives. Adeline is absolutely precious, & I look forward to watching her grow over the years!
