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.

Chattanooga Newborn Photographer – Lennon and Lawson’s Twin Newborn Session

March 10, 2014

I’m absolutely giddy to introduce you to Lawson (the little guy with the dreamy smile) and his 6-minute-older big sister, Lennon!  I am still prone to goosebumps when I recall their birth!  Because they were teeny and a bit early, both kiddos had to spend a little time in the NICU but were none the worse…

Newborn Photographer in Chattanooga – When Hopes Are Filled

February 26, 2014

My family is, in my eyes, complete with 4 kiddos.  However, that doesn’t keep me from longing to hold a sweet-smelling babe in my arms for just a little while.  It doesn’t mean I’m impervious to the dreamy milk coma smiles and the soft downy fuzz on their soft, delicate heads.   I usually get…
