This is my second time photographing Maddie & Logan for prom, but this time it was for their senior prom! Last year we took photos around downtown Knoxville, but this year we opted for the Knoxville Botanical Garden.
The funny thing is this was actually the third time I was photographing Logan and his family...this week alone! First I took his senior photos and then his brother's engagement photos and now of course pictures for prom. I love clients that I keep for years and that trust me to capture all the important life moments!

Oh my gosh, I can't even begin to explain how much I love these graduation/senior photos of a friend group from the University of Tennessee!
Two years I hired a babysitter, Rachel, from UT, and then when she got another job she referred on of her roommates and friends, Makela. Both of them have been amazing babysitters to my two kids! Unfortunately this year I am losing them as babysitters as they are graduating from the University of Tennessee.
I am so excited for their future and everything that is in store for them! When they asked if I would taken their senior/graduation photos I of course said yes.
They wanted to include four more of their friends that had been in a sorority with and had kept close friendship with over the last four years.
This session was so much fun, and all the girls look so gorgeous! Scroll down to see some of my favorites from their session.

East Tennessee Wedding Photographer | Bailey Bridal Portrait Session At the Press Room, Knoxville, TN
I am in love with this bridal portrait session that took place at the Press Room in Knoxville, TN. As a wedding photographer in East Tennessee I am loving that bridal portrait sessions are becoming so popular. On a wedding day a bride might feel rushed through her own portraits in order to get to her ceremony or reception. Booking a bridal portrait session on another day before the ceremony can give her time all to herself. My bridal portrait sessions include hair and makeup so you always feel your most glam and beautiful. These photos are a perfect way to memorialize your wedding dress.
Bailey made the most gorgeous bride! Her dress was really classic and sleek and is from Lace and Glam Bridal Boutique. The bouquet is from Vintage Floral Designs. For some of her photos we went with a classic look, but then others we went for a more high fashion, editorial type photo and pose. Scroll below to see some of my favorites from her session.
I was beyond excited to photograph Heather and Chad's baby shower this past weekend at Relix Event Venue in Knoxville, TN. Heather hired me to capture some of the setup and decorations of the event and well as take some maternity pictures.
Heather and Chad are the nicest couple, and it was so apparent how much their friends just absolutely adore them. Everyone was so excited to celebrate the couple and their little one who will be here soon!
The decor at the baby shower was just beautiful! Relix event venue is gorgeous in itself, but all of the flowers, chalkboards, and other touches Heather's friends added definitely made it even prettier.
Heather is a beautiful mama to be, and her maternity photos reflect that! Scroll below to see some of my favorites from the shower set up and maternity pictures.
A few months Ashely inquired about booking a studio maternity photography session here in Knoxville, and I was so excited! Ashley and I actually met a couple of years ago and have hung out a few times with friends. It's always so exciting to watch the people you know transition into one of the most beautiful times of life. I know Ashley will be an amazing mom!
For her studio session we used three different backdrops, grey, white and my new pecan colored one. The pecan actually ended up being my favorite! In some of the photos she wore a sleek black fitted dress and in others decided on a white maternity gown. She looks gorgeous in anything! Scroll down to see some of my favorites from her maternity session.
When Tara contacted me about taking her maternity / pregnancy announcement photos my first thought was, "Wow she has a cool name!" LOL (Anyone else feel as if it is so rare to meet someone with your name?) Then, I was excited because she wanted her photos taken indoors which meant I finally was able to photograph a session in the new studio located near downtown Knoxville, TN.
The new studio I am renting is absolutely gorgeous with a ton of natural light. Everything you need for a session is there, whether it is a couch, a bed, a brick wall or even if you want to use just backdrops. For Tara's session we decided to keep it more natural and give the photos a "homey" feel. I definitely think that feeling translated into the images, and it's almost hard to believe they were taken in studio and not at their house.
For some of the pregnancy announcement photos we just captured mom and dad, but in others we included the soon to be older brother. As you will see he is more than excited for his new role as a big sibling! Scroll down to see some of my favorite images from the Graves Family's pregnancy announcement session.
When Jamilex contacted me about maternity photos she said she wanted to have them taken somewhere that was "natural and beautiful." Immediately I thought of Ijams Nature Center here in Knoxville.
Ijams Nature Center is fun and educational 315 acres of land located in South Knoxville. There's rock quarries, sunflower fields, hiking and biking trails,and so much more. I've photographed several maternity sessions there.
Jamilex and her family were all dressed to the nines. She wore a gorgeous red maternity gown that contrasted beautifully with the yellow flower fields.
Once in Ijams we found a sort of abandoned greenhouse that made for a unique and charming setting for maternity pictures. Scroll down to see a couple of my favorite from Jamilex's session!
