Howard Family Portraits: Spring 2020

It was a joy to document a trip to Long Hunter State Park with the Howard family a couple weeks ago, soon after baby Mills turned a year old. I am hopeful that Anna and John will be able to look back on these photos and remember this very sweet stage that Mills is in! She is a curious, playful and sweet baby (with some beautiful parents, might I add!)

Lorah and Austin: Engaged, Part II

At the end of this month, these two will be married! Despite all that is going on in the world and having to make some hard decisions about receptions and showers, Lorah and Austin seem to be making the most of this difficult situation. The joy they have and love for one another is so evident just by spending an hour or so with them! Hopefully they will look back some day and tell their grandkids about getting married during a world pandemic but finding a way to keep it sacred and special. Wishing all the best for this lovely couple! ❤

Luke and Meagan – Proposal

Let me start with my excitement that I’M GETTING A SISTER! My brother-in-law proposed this weekend and she said yes! It was a bit of a whirlwind weekend as the whole family left on Saturday and drove through the night to New Bern, North Carolina to surprise Meagan on Sunday morning! It was a sweet set up right on the water near the historic town filled with old architecture and Spanish moss. So dreamy! We had a short celebration before we had to turn around and come home so we could all get to work on Monday. Can’t wait to celebrate more when Meagan comes back to Nashville in a few days. 2020 is going to make for an exciting year!

Lorah and Austin: Engaged

Okay, I had to include WAY more photos in this blog post than I normally do because I simply couldn’t narrow down the hundreds (literally) of perfect photos of this beautiful couple!! I mean, I seriously think they are models. Lorah looks just like a Gilmore Girl right?!

Anyway, Austin and Lorah recently got engaged and are starting the oh-so-fun process of wedding planning! I’m so excited for them. They are two of the sweetest, most genuine people you’ll ever know!

Enjoy our series of photos on a chilly, cloudy day at Two Rivers Park in Nashville. We managed to have a lot of fun! And, get excited because I already made them promise we’d take more when it’s warm and sunny in the spring! 🙂

BeLinda’s 60th Surprise!

BeLinda, a dear lady that I work with at Dalton Public Schools, has wanted family photos for a while. We had originally scheduled a session for earlier this year, but that weekend her daughters and grandson got pretty sick so we had to cancel. Little did she know, her daughter who lives in New York was planning a surprise trip back down to Georgia for her 60th birthday. Her daughters planned an elaborate scavenger hunt for her, including getting her hair and makeup done before the hunt ended at Chattanooga’s Coolidge Park for our surprise session! She was overjoyed and we had to stop several times to help her not ruin her makeup from crying tears of happiness.

Let me tell you this family is #goals. They love each other so well. The joy they have being together is so evident and was so easy to capture on camera. I sure hope they cherish these sweet photos for years to come as much as they cherish each other!
