McCarty Family

McCarty Family

As my family prepares to move west in just a few weeks, my weekday schedule between weekend weddings has been jam packed with family sessions for so many of my beloved returning clients and friends. I am SO thankful for all of these families who have wanted to squeeze in one last session together before I relocate!

The McCartys are one of those families, although they are friends first. I first met Melissa through a mutual friend at church just months after moving here. She and I were both pregnant with our second, due just weeks apart. We got our girls (whose birthdays happen to be 2 days apart) together for my daughter's very first Tennessee playdate. And so began a friendship between our families that I have no doubt will last for our lifetime…

Pumphrey Family

Pumphrey Family

Are the Pumphreys a beautiful family, or what?! Getting to know this joyful bunch over the last couple of years has been such a privilege. A year and a half ago when I last did their family photos, little Micah had just joined their life after they'd all been through a long journey that had led them right to their sweet boy. This year…

Baby Cooper – A Newborn Session

Baby Cooper – A Newborn Session

I don’t always do newborn sessions but when some of our very best friends have a baby and say “come on over,” I come running!

Mike and Heather were one of the very first couples we met here 5 years ago and they have been the most steady, loyal, and dear friends to us ever since then. These are call-in-the-middle-of-the-night-when-there’s-an-emergency friends. They’re drop-everything, give-up-anything, expect-nothing-in-return friends. They are heroes to our children and like family to all five of us…

Smith Family

Smith Family

You know those people you spend time trying to come up with excuses to meet? The ones you keep seeing around town and hearing awesome stories about, and you can't help but want to know them?

Once upon a time, the Smiths were those people to me. We had met a couple times but never had a chance to chat or get to know them much. And then three years ago…

McCown Family

McCown Family

The McCowns have been our home base out here in Tennessee. With our families thousands of miles away, these four incredible people have opened their home and their hearts to us without hesitation or limit. They have showered my husband and me with love and support in every imaginable way, even including keeping our children overnight MULTIPLE times in the last several years. (Are they unbelievable, or what?!)…

Matthew & Leah – A Tennessee Farm Wedding

Matthew & Leah – A Tennessee Farm Wedding

Genuine, abiding, adoring love. That is what I have witnessed over the past year between these two. Since the first time I met them, Matt and Leah have had me captivated! From the way they talk about each other and publicly praise one another, to the tears in their eyes and sparkle in their smiles when they look at and speak to each other, there is no question that these two are and have something special…
