Harvey | Kingsport pet photographer

Meet Harvey!  He’s the newest addition to my friend Sarah’s life.  He is a special little puppy that will bring so much joy to her.  He is going to spend many years surrounded by love and will be adored forever.  He was 9 weeks old when we took these photos.  We were concerned that we wouldn’t get any because he’s kind of spastic, but…

The Adler Family | Kingsport family photographer

My friend Jennifer is really busy.  So busy, in fact, that she hasn’t had a family photo in nearly FIVE years!  Crazy!  She finally decided that the session was long over due and we made time for a ten-minute front porch session.  It was perfect.  Her son was such a ham and his personality really shone through.  And he got a popsicle when it…

When Brandy contacted me about a photo session, I was a little surprised when she told me she wanted a session with her three children.  The last time I photographed them there were only two.  Surprise!  They got a bonus baby 🙂  He is darling and the older kids just love him.  Hooray for babies.  

Ensminger Cousins | Kingsport family photographer

This family!  They make extended family photographs so easy.  I photographed them a few years ago just before Christmas.  This year, they would all be together again after traveling from Chattanooga, Knoxville, and Kentucky (one of the “L” cities. I don’t remember which one).  It was a short weekend visit, but we were able to put together a quick photo session. And guess what?…

Happy Birthday Bronson! | Kingsport family photographer

This lucky little guy just turned ONE!  He was ALL business during our photo shoot, but with a little coaxing, we got some smiles out of him.  He was without a doubt one of the best walkers I’ve met for his age.  I don’t think he fell once during the hour I was with them.  His mom and dad obviously adore him.  I mean,…

Crawford family | Kingsport family photographer

This family might be one of my biggest weaknesses.  These girls have the most genuine smiles and their mom knows just what to say and just what to do to get them.  This was a fall MINI session.  It ended up being not so mini.  Oops.  I have no self-control when it comes to these guys.  See the featured image up there?  It’s one…

April’s family | Kingsport family photographer

April and I had talked for months about doing a photo session together.  It just seemed really difficult to find a date where everyone would be available.  Thankfully, we found one at the last minute and were able to capture these gems.  

The Doughetry Family | Kingsport family photographer

I love photographing this family!  Their little guy has the sweetest and biggest smile EVER.  Their daughter is a firecracker with boundless energy.   I was shocked to see how quickly she bounced back after a fall and flashed me an enormous smile.  One of the things I loved the most about this session was being able to give this little beauty the freedom…

The Ensminger Family | Kingsport family photographer

As baby Max’s first birthday approached, his mom came to me and said they needed to book a photography session.   But they wanted to wait for the first snow fall of the season.  It is REALLY hard for me to get out of my neighborhood if it snows.  In order for this session to work, it had to snow enough to last for…

The Wolters Family | Kingsport family photographer

It never ceases to amaze me how quickly these little babies grow up.  I’m currently expecting my FIFTH baby.  Having so many children really allows me the experience to appreciate that first year and how it can be gone in the blink of an eye.  It doesn’t seem quite fair to me that these little ones are so darling during one of the most sleep deprived…

The Call family | Kingsport family photographer

This amazing family moved to Kingsport not too long after we did….eleven years ago…. I had just one little baby and their oldest was in middle school.  Now two of them are in college and the younger two are right behind them.  It’s crazy how quickly life moves forward.What I love most about this family is how obvious it is that everyone loves each…

The Hanson Gallagher family | Kingsport family photographer

My mom is one of nine kids and my dad is one of seven. I have a HUGE family. But growing up, there was one really special cousin that I always looked forward to playing with when we were growing up. We had so much fun together and I always talked her ear of about the cutest boys in my class and she always…

The Fagerburg’s 50th wedding anniversary | Kingsport photographer

One day at church, Maureen came and sat next to me exclaiming, “Jennie. I need pictures.” “Okay, what kind of pictures do you need?” She proceeded to tell me that it was her 50th wedding anniversary and that it was ugly outside, so we would need to do them inside. So we did! They were so much fun and so much in love. They’ve…

The Reid Family | Kingsport maternity photographer

Most of my clients are either friends or referrals from other clients. Just over a year ago, I got a call to do a newborn session for someone that had just moved here and didn’t know anybody that I know. After being a little nosy, I found out that her dermatologist had recommended me to her (along with several other photographers). Several months later,…

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…

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…

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…

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…

Baby Nora | Kingsport Newborn Photographer

One of my photographer friends has decided that she no longer wants to do newborn photography.  So she’s referring her clients to me 🙂  This is one of her dear friends…who also happens to know some of MY dear friends.  Small world.  This is baby number four for her, and her mother in law was VERY excited about it.  So excited, in fact, that…

McVey Family | Kingsport Family Photographer

I had a lot of fun getting to know this darling family. In fact, they reminded me a lot of my own family, which made photographing them a little easier. Even better, the MOTHER used to teach Spanish. I used to teach Spanish. How neat is that? Can you believe this awesome location is actually their backyard? It’s pretty great, isn’t it? It worked…
