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!

Pierce Family: Spring Photos 2019

Ruby Jane is 10 months old already and the Pierce family needed some spring photos to document how quickly she is changing and growing. The bright colors were perfect and just in time for Easter! It is always so fun to capture this sweet family, and I can’t wait to see how Ruby continues growing into a beautiful little lady!

Heather and Joseph: Engaged

Heather Dollard is one of my LONGEST friends. We met before kindergarten at a music camp, and we have been those true childhood friends ever since. Many a weekend growing up were spent playing together in the creek, with our Brat dolls, making up silly dances or watching movies, and practically every summer was spent together at Camp Sycamore Hills. Basically, we’ve grown up together, and anytime we are together, it feels just like it always has. I so cherish these kinds of friends! Heather was one of my bridesmaids, and I can’t WAIT to be one of hers in August! Until then, please enjoy some of the engagement pics we took together a couple weeks ago!

Gotta love dat RING doe!
And all those sun flares!
Gah I love that sunset lighting.
Classic Nashville shot
Does this look like a painting or is it just me?!
Before we caught the sunset on the bridge, we started the shoot off at Marathon Village!
UM wow
I am used to shooting in outdoor settings, so this whole industrial vibe was new for me. Always good to step outside of your comfort zone!
I’m so excited for these two!

‘Tis the Season!

Yes, I realize that it is now a week into 2019, but I realized I never posted some sweet Christmas photos I got to take for a new family in December! While I was shooting with Jessi and her d Eva, Jessi’s dear friend Gabby and her two little boys, Nash and Anderson, came along for the ride! Jessi is the boys’ godmother, so of course she jumped in some of the photos. The results are just precious because they are such a happy, magical little family! I truly hope I can capture their family again sometime.
