The Dodel Family {knoxville family photography}

When the Dodels contacted me about doing their family photos, I couldn't wait! I was even more excited when they suggested the Knoxville Botanical Gardens for their shoot - it turned out to be the perfect place to take photos. The lighting, trees, and scenic views couldn't have been better!

Absolutely gorgeous. There was this one tree that we spent the majority of the photoshoot under - it was amazing! The sunlight was streaming through and lighting up all the leaves with bright pops of color.

And that is why I love shooting outside of a studio. You just can't replicate mother nature.

Their little girl was absolutely darling - she had a blast playing with the leaves. She would grab a handful and wave them around and throw them in the air, and then bust out with a round of giggles.

 Another reason why this location was so fantastic was all the different areas for great photo opportunities. Like this awesome rock wall with beautiful mature trees behind it. Love.

What a beautiful family!

Little Lukas {knoxville newborn photography}

I had the pleasure of getting to do little Lukas' newborn photo shoot. What a little sweetheart he was!

He was very awake at the beginning of the shoot, so I was able to get some cute shots of his little face. Eventually he fell asleep, though (gotta love those sleepy newborns!), and we were able to have a little fun with some cute sleepy poses and the most adorable pumpkin hat.

I don't think there's anything cuter than a sleeping baby!

Then it was time for some brand-new Mom and Dad with Lukas shots.

And of course some brand-new-family-of-3 shots.

Congratulations to the new family and welcome to the world, Lukas! You sure are a cutie.
