Change for the Stephens-Fritz family

I recently did senior photos of DeAndra and Emily, sisters who attended Maryville High School. They are off and ready to start new challenges. One is heading to the Marines and the other, college. They have the support of a wonderful family, and I know both will do amazing things. Congrats to the Stephens-Fritz family! It was a pleasure getting to know you.

Here’s Emily- She’s starting in the Marines in just a few weeks!




Here’s DeAndra, she’s starting college at Morningside.

Chase B.

Chase needed some professional headshots for his new business and we got some great photos.  We decided to steer clear of the old fashioned indoor ones, and mostly do a natural setting.  Thanks Chase for letting me snap these.  Oh- and Chase is a new Farmers Insurance Agent.  He is working so hard to get his clientele up.  He was able to get our auto, home, and some other coverages much higher to protect us for a cheaper premium.  We are so stoked.  So if you want to get a new quote on all your insurance- give him a ring.  He does other stuff too, like financial management and life insurance and college funds.  Give him a ring and let him quote you. You will not regret it.  We learned a lot about where we were falling short.

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.

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.
