There is something extra special about capturing the love of an extended family. It amazes me to look at a group of fifteen people and to think they all began with just two! It's an especially sweet thing to see an extended family together who does not frequently get to all be in the same place at the same time. The Cate family had all traveled to be together for their parents' anniversary as well as Fourth of July, which fell in the same week. I knew this family was going to steal my heart as soon as those precious cousins all walked up together looking as darling as can be dressed in their best! And steal my heart they did, with those six sets of blue eyes and one of brown, and their patience and gentleness with one another that made me quickly forget they are as young as they are!
At the top of this beautiful family tree are Keith and Paula. These two have so very much to be proud of, from their marriage that they celebrated just a day prior to their session, to their gorgeous family and seven precious grandchildren, as well as this stunning family farm where we got to be for their session. Holston House & Barn will be available for weddings and events in the near future and I cannot recommend this venue or its wonderful owners enough! The view was absolutely breathtaking and the stunning property and barns showcase the beauty of East Tennessee so remarkably. I am so thrilled to have met the Cate family and cannot wait to return to their property to work with them again!
