Lily’s 3 month session | Kingsport lifestyle photographer

Lily is such a bright-eyed little beauty.  She was having a rough morning when I got there and her mom called in her little sister to help out.  There is seriously nothing better than aunts who adore their nieces and nephews.  We got the best smiles out of her when her aunt was helping out. Having a baby who cries a lot is so…

Rhea is 3 months old | Kingsport Lifestyle Photographer

One of my VERY favorite sessions from the Baby’s First Year Plan is the 3 month session.  From my own experience, 3 month old babies don’t really do a whole lot.  But they’re DARLING.  They are just starting to smile well and interact with you and have typically put on some weight, making those cheeks just so darn cute.  Moms aren’t usually as overwhelmed…

This is MY family!  Did you catch my last post about this project 52?  If not, you can find it here.   That post explains all about how this project came to be.  And it’s been so neat capturing all these special moments with my family!  We drove cross country this year (30 hours each way) to visit our extended families.  As much as…

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…

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 Max | Kingsport newborn photographer

A week or two before this little guy was born, his mom told me that she had made the mistake of looking at Christmas newborn photos on pinterest.  He wasn’t due until the 5th of January, but when she went into labor on the 23rd of December, she was thrilled that she would get her Christmas photos!  They are huge UT fans.  They have…

Lauren goes shopping | Kingsport lifestyle photographer

I am not a purist when it comes to lifestyle photography. But when it comes to my own children, it’s what I crave. My oldest child will be ten in just a few weeks and I’m kind of having a panic attack. I’ve been a mother for a decade. When I first started this adventure, I had no idea how quickly the years would…
