Gatlinburg Family Photographer | Smoky Mountain Vacation | The Ritchey Family

Gatlinburg Photographers

The lovely Ritchey family contacted me a few months before their vacation to Gatlinburg Tn to plan a fabulous family session. As the mother of four boys, she knew a mixture of planning, prepping, and fun was the key to a great family portrait session. Let me tell you, working with four young boys can be a challenge, but nothing I wasn’t up for! I’m not going to lie, there were moments, no one would look at the camera, and they were just over it; and let me tell you, it’s totally normal, and we always end up with amazing images!!!

Cades Cove, with is 365 degree mountain views makes the perfect spot for vacationers. You get gorgeous images that are so different than everyone elses. Those mountains are just perfection, not to mention the fields!

We ended up having SO MUCH FUN. We took posed images, and laughed, and played games for the perfect candid/posed mixture. They’re just a lovely family and I’m so glad I had the pleasure of meeting them.

Here’s my faves!
