    Cora is such a sweet little cuddle bug. With grandparents that love to spoil her sweet, she takes naps in the arms of anyone wanting to take a nap as well. At the end of our session, her daddy gladly cuddled her up in his arms and they both went fast asleep, but prior to nap time this little sweetie showed me around. Her beautiful big baby blues remained inquisitive the entire time as she took in her surroundings. She loves her puppy, feeding him cheerios, reading, peering through her crib slates and sitting over the air conditioner vent allowing the air to flow through her hair just like a little baby model. Cora is adorable! It was so nice to meet you three! Thank you for allowing me to spend an afternoon with your wonderful family!

Check out Cora’s slideshow HERE!

I did not know what to expect. I come from a family of girls. One was thirteen. Aren’t teenagers self absorbed and sometimes rough to be around? Whew, these three boys put all my fears aside. They were so much fun, kept me laughing and were very engaging in conversation. Isaac, Jackson and Lucas thanks […]

I did not know what to expect. I come from a family of girls. One was thirteen. Aren’t teenagers self absorbed and sometimes rough to be around? Whew, these three boys put all my fears aside. They were so much fun, kept me laughing and were very engaging in conversation. Isaac, Jackson and Lucas thanks so much for hanging out with me and allowing me to capture a taste of a day in your lives.

Hope you love your slideshow! Click HERE.

This is one of the first scenes I witnessed. Lucas has so much energy and is full of life!

A scene that can be found in any home with a mix of siblings and a gaming system. I love real life!

Isaac loves engines and fixing things.

In his prime

The boys Great Dane PUPPY makes Jackson look small

The boys planned an attack on their dad. So fun!

I had a fabulously fun time shooting their engagement session and their wedding was nothing short of perfection. Alisha and Niko, thank you SO much for inviting us to be a part of your wedding day!!! Hope you love your (super long) slideshow :) Click HERE and now to your super long blog post :)

Alisha, an interior designer, went over the top with all of the fabulous details of her wedding. Not only were many of the design ideas her own, but she also implemented much of the design herself including her save the dates and wedding invitations. How cute is Alisha with her “I do” on the bottom of her perfect ballet slippers. Love that she went non-traditional with a pop of color.

Laura, Matron of Honor and best friend of the bride, placed the same bracelet on Alisha’s wrist that Laura wore on her wedding day. Laura had forgotten a borrowed item on her wedding day, so she borrowed Alisha’s bracelet. The girls became a bit emotional with the nostalgia.

Alisha’s dress (Designer: Mikaella / A Wedding Wonderland in Knoxville) was absolutely gorgeous and I am loving what her seamstress did on the interior of the dress. . .

We had some extra time prior to the ceremony so we took advantage by doing some shots of Alisha looking absolutely fabulous on her wedding day!

Again, details were endless. I love the wine box Alisha chose to house her programs.

The causal and natural feel of the bouquets were perfect for this outdoor wedding. The twine used to wrap the stems made a perfect accent.

Alisha was a bit nervous and anxious prior to the ceremony, but overall just excited to see her groom!

The ring bearer stole my heart through his sweet tears as he walked down the aisle and then clung to his mom during the ceremony. Be sure to not the chap stick in his hand :)

Niko and Alisha’s wedding location was a amazing and means so much to the family. Niko’s family owned this property long ago and sold in to open up their fabulous restaurants.

People stood in eagerness to see the beautiful bride walk down the aisle

Alisha’s expression was priceless as she saw her groom for the first time on her wedding day.

Niko could not take his eyes off his bride and had a permanent smile the entire ceremony.

Again, fabulous details this wedding had. Alisha even hand painted the adorable “Niko & Alisha’s Wedding” sign.

My favorite detail of the day. . . the cake topper complete with Alisha and Niko’s weim, Bruno. Guess who hand painted these adorable adornments. . .Alisha :) (Cake by Sandy Engfron with Sandy’s Cakes)

Alisha’s priceless expression during Niko and Alisha’s first dance. Niko can always make Alisha laugh

This extraordinary wedding reception location is part of Angelos’, Niko’s brothers restaurant.

The kiddos at the wedding wanted to write Niko and Alisha some messages with their sparklers

This seriously was the most fun reception ever complete with traditional Greek dancing. I kept saying I wanted to die and come back Greek. These people know how to have and absolutely fabulous time!

Congrats Alisha and Niko! So excited for you in your new life together and I must say I am just a bit jealous of your epic honeymoon to the Greek Isles coming up next month! Have SO much fun!

I met up with Seth, Laura, Justice and Riley at Chattanooga’s Renaissance Park and had a blasting getting to know this family of four. Prior to meeting up this is what Laura had to say about Justice and Riley: “What I love about Justice is that he is so serious at times yet so innocent and sweet at the same time. He constantly cracks us up with the things that he randomly says.Riley is 1 1/2 and constantly on the go. She doesn’t like to sit still long and has a mind of her own. We love that she is a happy baby and gets excited about everything.” The two fit these descriptions to a T. I was impressed with how well Justice and Riley got along. Riley often acting as a miniature reflection of her older brother while Justice has already stepped into the protective older brother role.

Enjoy your slideshow! Click HERE

Do you remember when  you lost your first tooth and you incessantly put your tongue through the newly formed hole? Meet Justice. . .

Riley is so precious! I love her dark eyes, full heart shaped lips  and petiteness!

Riley is definitely a mommy and a daddy’s girl, but she definitely showed off some daddy’s girl moments this day.


Justice decided he wanted a try . . .

Seriously, Riley, you are so very cute even when you are sad. :)

I had met Betsy and her immediate family several times (you can view past sessions here and here) and this time I had the opportunity to meet her extended family. Specifically her two sisters and their kids in a photo session surprise for their mom’s birthday. These kids are so amazing. Free Spirited . Fun . Fair to Each Other . Absolutely Beautiful! We had a blast running all over some fields located within Chattanooga’s Greenway Farms. Thank you all for inviting me to be a part of the special surprise. I am so happy that you love your images and here is your blog post to coordinate :)

Hope you love your slideshow, click HERE

The weightless running of the kids in this session reminded me of this verse: Hebrews 12:1 “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us.”
