Lukas {knoxville 9 month baby + family photography}

Oh, where to begin? This family lives 2 doors down from us, and they are our very good friends. I've had the pleasure of doing all of Lukas' milestone photos since he was born, and I just can't believe how big he is now! Before we all know it he will be up and running around and getting into all sorts of mischief (probably with my son as his buddy, haha!).

This session captured Lukas at 9 months old and was extra special because Lukas' Mom's family was in town, so we were able to include them in the photos. It always makes my heart smile to see the loving bond between a grandparent and a grandchild. :)

James {knoxville newborn photography}

I was so excited when I was asked to do James' newborn photos. Photographing cute little squishy newborns is one of my favorite types of sessions to do! They're just so new to the world and absolutely adorable. After a newborn session, I always leave wishing my little guy was a newborn again, I just love this adorable age so much!

James was such a trooper through the session, as were his parents. The whole session went smoothly, and I had a great time getting to know this new family of 3. It turns out that James' father is into photography as well, so we had a great time discussing cameras, flashes, and all sorts of other photog-lingo.

Welcome to the world, little James.

The McConnell-Roberson Family {knoxville family photography + children's photography}

Fact: This family weren't even clients of mine.

I was at the gardens finishing up another session when they approached me and kindly asked if I would possibly be able to do a session with them. Apparently their photographer never showed up and wasn't answering their phone (as a fellow photographer I'm still cringing!). They were all dressed up like a family straight off of Pinterest (seriously, how awesome are their outfits?!) and were so much fun - I couldn't say no, and I'm glad I didn't! What a great session it was, I had an awesome time getting to know them, and these are some of my favorite photos to date!
