Beauty Revived 50 Beautiful Children | Knoxville Child Photographer

On Wednesday, Beauty Revived announced the photographers chosen for their 50 Beautiful Children campaign this summer. I am so excited and honored to share that I have been chosen as one of those photographers! This group of photographers is not only insanely talented, they have such huge, giving hearts. I am proud to say I am sharing this journey with each of them!

13221330_10153871806879822_4106844420496220176_oOver the recent months, I have felt a tugging at my heart to give back somehow through my photography. I had no idea what that would look like but had faith that I would know it when the opportunity presented itself. I happened to find Michelle Gifford’s Periscope broadcast the day she was calling for photographers to apply to join this campaign. Definitely not coincidence. I never hesitated – I instantly applied and prayed that if that was part of my serving journey that I would be chosen. The morning I received my acceptance email, my heart was filled with happiness & excitement. As they say, the rest is history…

In a world where physical perfection is deemed the most beautiful, I hope to bring recognition to true beauty – the kind of beauty that radiates through one’s spirit & love for others. I want to feature a child who exemplifies just that through serving others, overcoming difficult situations, showing strength in the face of insurmountable trials, & does so with a giving heart and a smile on their face. We all know that children have the biggest hearts & are quick to share their happiness with those around them even when faced with their own obstacles. Let’s celebrate that!

This is where YOU come in. I need nominations! I want to hear about a child in your life that is all of that & more. I know there are so many out there that deserve recognition & have inspiring stories. With your help, I hope to find a sweet child to feature for this special campaign.

The chosen child will receive a complimentary session with me & the digital image files from that session. Their images & story will also be featured in Beauty Revived’s August magazine – in both print & digital form!

To nominate your child please EMAIL the following information to: tracey@traceysoutherlandphotography.com 
– child’s name
– child’s age (must be 16 years or younger)
– a recent picture of the child
– your child’s story

Nominations will be accepted through Sunday, June 5, 2016. The chosen child’s family will be contacted by June 10th so we can begin planning your session!

Please share this campaign with any & all that you think may be interested. I am so excited to read all the inspiring stories of sweet children in our area!

Becky - Well deserved honor. You are amazingly talented and your work will bless a very special child and their family.

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.
