The Merrill family | Kingsport child photographer

If you have been following my blog at all, you know that I have been working with Dr. Merrill of Archway Chiropractic. He specializes in Pregnancy and Child Chiropractic. For a very long time, his walls have been empty as he starts up his practice. They are empty no more! We took his girls out for a fun photo shoot with all of their favorite costumes! They had so much fun and I think these photos are just adorable! They are so neat displayed in his waiting room. If you need a chiropractor, check him out. This is his website and you can find him on facebook.



Emmaline’s 6 month photos | Kingsport baby photographer

It is always so fun to see Ms. Emmaline! As a Denim and Lace Photography Baby Plan baby, I get to see her every three months. She is so happy and so smiley. We were done with these photos in record time. It helps, too, that big brother is always happy to tag along. We did these at Warrior’s Path State Park in Kingsport and I think they turned out just lovely! It is always amazing to me to see just how quickly these babies grow. You can see her 3 month photos here, her newborn photos here, and her mom’s maternity photos

Archway Chiropractic | Kingsport photographer

Just under a year ago, Dr. Jordan Merrill brought his young family to Kingsport from Ohio to start his own Chiropractic business. He had worked several years with a practice there, but really wanted to do something on his own. Because his wife was expecting their fifth child (this is her, isn’t she cute?), he decided to take another job during the day to support them while he got his practice up and running. Well, Archway Chiropractic is now open for business! He specializes in pregnancy and children’s chiropractic. There are so many benefits of Chiropractic care during pregnancy. He has several articles about it on his facebook page. My aunt was 41 when she delivered her 6th child. She told me that her last pregnancy was the easiest because of the chiropractic care she received. Dr. Merrill gave me the honor of photographing his family and having them decorate his walls. You can view his newborn session here.



Emmaline’s 3 month photos | Kingsport photographer

Three month old photography sessions are some of my very favorites! Because the babies at this age aren’t really doing a whole lot, other than smiling, I prefer to do a lifestyle session at their home. A lifestyle photography session is when I just kind of hang out with you during the day and capture some of your favorite things to do together as a family. It is so fun to go into someone’s home and see how they interact with each other in the environment they are most comfortable in. This family has such a pretty home and some really fun photos on their walls (including some of mine, which is always really neat to see). Their four year old is such a ham and totally adores his sister! Emmaline is a baby plan baby. You can see her newborn photos here and here mom’s maternity photos here.

Hixson family | Kingsport extended family photographer

Every now and then there is a really special ocassion that needs to be documented with professional photographs. Even though every single one of these parents’ children live out of state, they were all able to come in for just one weekend for their dad’s retirement party. Because the days were so packed, the ONLY time we could do these was at noon. The absolute worst time of day to photograph people. And there were no clouds.  But it couldn’t be helped! Thankfully, there was a sliver of good light on the porch and we were able to make it work. It was so fun to see them all together and how much they enjoyed each other’s company!

Baby Joey | Kingsport newborn photographer

One of the greatest things about being a photographer is seeing these sweet babies grow up. This little guy’s older sister was my first newborn who slept through the entire session. Seriously, she didn’t make a peep. It was so wonderful seeing her again. Even though her new little brother did wake up during his session, he was still an angel. What lucky parents to have two such beautiful children! Thank you for letting me photograph them, Lisa!

Happy first birthday, Judson! | Kingsport family lifestyle photographer

One of the BEST things about photography is getting to know new people. This sweet mom lives not too far from me and since I did her son’s newborn photos (you can see them here), she has invited me to her Bible study and we’ve had our kids play together a few times. And we like to sew and be crafty. I think she is one of the nicest people I know and I’m so glad we’ve become friends! And her home is amazing! It was the perfect spot to document her sweet family and her son’s first birthday.
