Gatlinburg Family Pictures | Pigeon Forge Photographer | Melanie's Family

Cades Cove Family Pictures


Extended Families are the best! When Melanie contacted me to capture her fun family while they were all on vacation together, I was thrilled! I love getting to be a part of these big families while they visit the Smoky Mountains. Plus, Smoky Mountain pictures are to die for! Sharing the natural beauty I experience on a daily basis =). I seriously can't tell you how much I love being a Gatlinburg photographer!

Big Family Picture in Cades Cove

Of course, we had to get a picture of all of the family together with the mountains! No stay in Gatlinburg would be complete without it! They are such a lovely bunch, and such pleasant company!

Candid Smoky Mountain Picture

So much of my work is beautiful, posed portraits, which are GREAT, but sometimes the candids are my very favorites. This sweet little family had fun playing in the field and we got some candid fun on camera with the stunning Smoky Mountains in the background. oh, and that light!!

Now it's time to share a few more of my favorites! We took so many awesome pictures that it was super hard to narrow them down for a blog post! 

Smoky Mountain Photographer | Knoxville Senior Portraits | Morgan

Knoxville TN Senior Portraits


Say hello to Morgan! She's a super sweet 2016 Knoxville senior with some big ideas! She had such great ideas for her Smoky Mountain senior portraits! Morgan was amazing  and even brought super cute props, I couldn't have chosen them better myself! We ended up using a beautiful location overlooking the Smoky Mountains, and boy were her and her mom troopers on the hike up, in heels no less!

The Red Suitcase

Morgan found this darling vintage suitcase at an antique store in Knoxville. We got some fabulous pictures with it! Oh the places she'll go next year and beyond!

The suitcase also appeared in this cute Pinterest inspired pose that Morgan suggested. She rocked her heels and tassel!

The Scarf

Pinterest in a gold-mine for photography inspiration, and Morgan found a pose there with a scarf she fell in love with. I re-created it with my own spin with the gorgeous Smoky Mountains in the background. It's such a whimsical senior portrait.


Stack of Books

A stack of books is PERFECT for a Knoxville senior portrait, it represents all the hardwork you've put in over the last four years. These vintage books were a great touch for Morgan's session.

Cap and Gown

Of course we had to include cap and gown pictures! No Knoxville senior session is complete without them! 


And she's DONE!!!

The Ward's Engagement Sessions || Knoxville Area Photographer

Good morning!!

Now that I've settled in to my new home, Knoxville, Tennessee it's time for me to catch you all up on some of my amazing recent sessions here

It's time for you to meet the ever-so-handsome couple, the Wards!!! I've head the pleasure of photographing them on a couple of occasions with their beautiful baby boy. This session, however, was all about the two of them and showing off their love for each other in an engagement type session.

As a professional, I don't like to admit my mistakes ( but trust me, I make them). On the day of their session, we had a date mix-up, and I ended up being late! I absolutely despise being late and making people wait on me, but I was so glad the Wards were willing to wait. They were so patient until I could get there and take some beautiful photographs of the two of them.

While this session, was a bit different than my typical photography style, I LOVE how it turned out. We hung out in the freezing cold, outside of our local West Elm and the result speaks for itself!
