Lindsay & Ben’s Fillauer Lake House Wedding in Cleveland, TN

March 19, 2015

“Once upon a time…” would probably be the most appropriate way to begin this story because the story that ends with Lindsay & Ben getting married at Fillauer Lake House is a lot like a fairytale. I met Lindsay in 2010 when she booked me to photograph her April 2011 wedding. Sometime in February of…

Derek Yates – Congrats on Becoming Ellen’s New Gardener!

November 18, 2014

I met Derek Yates several years ago when I was hired to direct a Hip/Hop music video and we quickly became friends. Having each tragically lost a sibling we formed a bond that’s deeper and different from most. He’s become a lot like a brother to me. Over the years I’ve worked with him on…

I don’t often step outside my role as a newborn photographer.  When I do, it’s usually for the families of “my” babies.  This time, I got to be a Chattanooga birthday party photographer – and it was so much fun!  Easton’s amazing mom put together a stunning party with an orange and aqua theme tied…

Chattanooga Newborn Photographer – Sweet Baby Carolina

September 16, 2014

I may be a Chattanooga newborn photographer, but sometimes my clients come from further away.  Miss Carolina traveled from Dunlap to visit me!  I am so, so grateful that she did, too!  She was just such a precious baby girl.  Actually, their whole family is just fantastic!  Her big brother might be one of the sweetest…

Man Photography – Portraits of Men in all Their Manliness

June 16, 2014

Man photography. Lately I’ve been intrigued with portraits of men. Something about the way they act like they don’t want their picture made, but you know they really do. They’ve made a life to be proud of and they have these hopes and ideas down inside them that they never really get to explore because…

What to expect during your newborn session – Chattanooga newborn photography

June 12, 2014

Newborn photography is a special discipline within portraiture that not every photographer can do well – it is about so much more than a technical knowledge of photography and lighting and having the right equipment.  It requires patience and confidence.  It requires an intimate understanding of a newborn’s world – and the world they’ve spent…

Sharon & Bruce – Destination Wedding – Hawaii – Waleia Beach, Maui

April 28, 2014

Calling Bruce & Sharon’s wedding “unforgettable” would be an understatement.  They were married on Waleia Beach in Maui, Hawaii two years ago with a handful of friends and family in attendance and I was blessed to be a part of their day. Destination weddings aren’t the easiest – we travel with 200 pounds of gear,…

Chattanooga Newborn Photographer – There’s Something About First-Time Parents

April 22, 2014

To say I love my job as a Chattanooga newborn photographer is an understatement.  I love the sounds babies make and the way they smell.  I love watching them startle reflexively and I love the little faces they make when they’re dreaming.  I love their furry little bodies and their newness.  I love their parents…
