Stephanie’s Maternity Photos | Kingsport maternity photographer

Stephanie’s due date was two days ago and I feel so bad.  Going over due is one of the worst feelings ever.  I remember with my last one wondering if I was EVER going to have this baby and questioning whether or not I was even pregnant.  Ridiculous, I know.  But I did also have a friend who was due AFTER me have her…

Baby #3 | Kingsport maternity photographer

I was so excited when this sweet mom emailed to let me know she was expecting again!  I had done the baby’s first year plan with her now two-year-old and was genuinely happy for her to hear she was having another.   We picked the very last day of December for our photo shoot.  It was cold.  In fact, if you look closely on…

Mason’s surprise | Kingsport photographer

Guess what?!?  Oh, who am I kidding.  You don’t have to guess.  I’m sure you can tell that Mason is going to be a big brother in December.  He’s going to be the sweetest sibling!  I can’t wait to meet her!

I was so excited when this mom told me she was having another baby.  Big brother gave her a hard time and I know she often wondered if he would be an only child.  But, no!  He’s getting a brother!  I was an absolute wreck when I was expecting and every move I made caused terrible pain throughout my body.  Because I was just…

Why you should hire a professional photographer (even if you have a nice camera)

Professional photography is a luxury.  A true professional has thousands of dollars worth of equipment.  Not only is that equipment insured, but the photographer will also carry at least a million dollars in liability insurance as well.  While some professional photographers have been formally trained at a university, many (myself included) are “self-taught.”  Self-taught does not mean that I picked up a camera one…

Meet Cara | Kingsport maternity photographer

My friends Cara and Greg are having their fourth baby!  They are THRILLED to be welcoming a baby boy to their family!  They are already great parents and will be just as amazing this time.  Her nursery is incredible and I’m always amazed at how “put together” she always looks.  How darling is this outfit?  And she tells me it’s not even maternity….I’m not…

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,…

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…

Falyn | Kingsport maternity photographer

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it a thousand times: I really love meeting new people. I met Falyn and her cute family for the first time the day of our photo session. I had no idea what she looked like. I immediately noticed her awesome sense of style. She looked amazing in her simple jeans paired with a lace top. Seriously. I…
