Hey there! I’m so glad you found me! I’ll start right off with this: I absolutely love what I do. Photography has been a lifelong passion for me, from the time my Mammaw gave me my first 10mm film camera. We would vacation every year in the place I now call home – the Great Smoky Mountains. I took photos of absolutely everything – the trees, mountains, my family, the stone walls at the lookouts. I loved photographing the details of those trips. I still have that same thrill every time I step into a shoot, and I want you and your family to have an absolute blast at your session. Whether I get to spend an hour photographing life as you know it with a sweet new baby, or I get to spend the whole day capturing every beautiful detail of your long-awaited, much-anticipated wedding, my goal is to put you at ease and get a good belly laugh out of you at some point in the process. I believe posed portraits have their place, but the really “good stuff” comes in between.
I love to meet any potential client before scheduling a session, so that we can get to know each other a bit and I can get a good feel for what you’d like out of our time together. I believe a great session is a partnership, with both parties working toward a common goal. I also understand that if you are booking everything online for a destination wedding or family retreat, that may not be possible. In that case, I would be more than happy to schedule a time for us to talk on the phone or a Facetime/video call to work out the details.
I live in Sevierville with my hubby, 3 kids, and doggo. I love the outdoors and traveling, music, and pizza. Folk music is my jam, and if Chris Thile is performing anywhere within a 3-hour drive, I will find a way to get to there. If I wasn’t a photographer, I could probably see myself doing one of those food channel shows where you just go all over the world eating new foods and meeting new people. When I’m not booked up, or running one of our littles to a practice, game, meet, or competition, we like to go camping and hiking (I’m a big lover of national parks) or yes … to Dollywood (although no, I’ve never actually seen Dolly in person).
