Danielle & Justin - Downtown Knoxville and UT Gardens Engagement

What an amazingly fun day we had exploring Knoxville with this awesome couple, Danielle and Justin. Their session started with iced coffee and sweets in Market Square from the best coffee shop in town, Coffee and Chocolate. Next, we took a stroll with the two through the park and over to Gay street in order to capture some sweet moments with the famous Tennessee Theatre sign.

In keeping with this fun-loving duo's hobbies, the two brought cards from a favorite game as well as dice, which kept the shoot lighthearted and true to their natures. We loved how Danielle and Justin ran straight to the Kool Aid man and Mario Brothers graffiti in the alley, reinforcing how truly playful and comfortable they are (and check out that posing...love it!). We also really wanted to grab some shots of the two riding their bikes  on the greenway, since this is something they frequently do together. Our day ended at the UT Gardens for some more romantic photos of the couple and sincere moments of love and joy shared between the two.

We can't wait for Danielle and Justin's unique wedding to be held on the Volunteer Princess next May, but for now, enjoy this sweet shoot in downtown Knoxville.

Zahava's 3 Month & Family Photos - Sequoyah Park Knoxville

We had the pleasure of working with such an amazing family last week at Sequoyah Park. Rachel and David are a sweet couple who were up for anything (including climbing into some brush with a baby for a great photo opportunity), but their precious baby girl, Zahava, stole our hearts. Her sweet smile, adorable outfits and bows, and big, bright eyes simply made this family session. Zahava was an absolute joy to work with, and she was clearly aware of the camera (even if it took a little coaxing from her friend, a grey stuffed bear or a singing photographer).

Enjoy these tender moments from our family session with the Ortiz family.

Aprill & Calvin - Downtown Nashville Maternity

It was such a honor to travel to Nashville last week to take these maternity photos for my great friends, Calvin and Aprill. This couple wanted a stylish, elegant shoot, and this clear and sunny Monday evening was the perfect time to capture sweet moments celebrating their first child after our first shoot was rained out. Everything happens for a reason, and I was thrilled to have the opportunity to explore downtown Nashville with such an awesome couple. You can clearly see the love and joy that Calvin and Aprill share, but I think you can also tell how fun this couple is from the more playful shots included.

Congratulations, Calvin and Aprill!

Enjoy these photos!
