Sweetest thing

The other day Kathryn and I spent the day together.  Just because.  I was going to take her to the park and snap some photos.   She’s almost 4, and it’s so hard to get any at a party or any other time because she often refuses to wear shirts.  So, we somehow ended at Dad’s law office instead eating nutter butters.   She was pretty happy about that.   I took my camera out and started shooting some snapshots.  I didn’t even edit these other than to make sure they were clear, but It just hit me how emotional I am that she is growing so fast.  I don’t know if I have ever soaked up hugs and kisses like hers.  She is all in.  I miss her when she is two seconds away.  How can you not?  She wears her heart on her sleeve.  She’s so incredibly empathetic and sweet, and asks for hugs and kisses “gimme some sugar Mama” and absolutely wraps herself around you with love.  I want to remember this time.   She’s just so full of love.   She keeps telling me she wants to be bigger, and it makes me sad.  I want her to stay little forever.  Kathryn, we love your giggles and endless laughs.  We love that you ask so many questions and that you always ask “are you okay?”.   You have such a  big heart and give us so much joy.  We love you so much.  And I hope you keep your southern accent (you sound like Dad and Grandma).  It’s incredibly adorable.

Emily’s Senior Session

I was one lucky gal this weekend.  I got to hang out with the most amazing sisters.  Today, I photographed Emily.  It was warm enough to venture to downtown Knoxville, and boy did we have fun!

Emily is a senior at Maryville High School and is excited to start her journey in the United States Marines.  She’s a runner and can run a mile in about the time it takes me to down a cup of coffee- which is very fast.   Stay tuned for more on both these awesome ladies.

Hello Friends!

So much to catch up on here.   I am happily dusting my studio out and picking the camera back up.  I am going to offer Spring mini sessions.

Here’s the day:  MARCH 19- SATURDAY (MARYVILLE) location is OUTSIDE.

So grab a friend and bring the kids to Maryville for your session!     If you are single- bring your pet or your BFF.    Email me or call to get on the schedule.

We will start at 8AM sharp.

Finishing up Brittany’s Senior Session

I am finishing up Brittany’s senior session.   It was such a fun session, and not only did I love all the fall colors in the mountains, I ended up really liking a lot of the black and white photos that were a tad off beat.   Every time I see the photos of her holding the globe, I can’t stop singing “You have got the whole world in your hands…”  but it is true.   Go get them Brittany!  I wish you well as you pursue your path in life working with precious life in the pediatric field.

Sneak Peek Brittany | Senior at William Blount

I had so much fun with Brittany today.  We spent most of the day in the mountains and later caught up in the studio for some more formal shots.   So many to cull through and decide on.  But for now, here’s a super quick sneak peek.   Brittany is a senior at William Blount and plans to pursue a career in nursing.    Thank you Brittany, for letting me share a snap shot into your beautiful life.   Enjoy this time, for it goes by so fast.
