Welcome Hannah | Kingsport newborn photography

Hannah’s aunt is a photographer and photographer her mom’s wedding and all of her siblings.  And then she moved.  So her mom chose the second best photographer around, which is me 🙂  We just did a mini newborn session, which entails one setup on the beanbag and one prop.  We were done in just under two hours.  She is such a darling little baby…

Welcome Hudson | Kingsport newborn photographer

Baby Hudson came into the world as just the sweetest little thing his parents could imagine.  He was quickly adored by his big brother and sister and everyone was so excited for him to come home.  Unfortunately, his mother began having some incredible pain and ended up back in the hospital due to complications with her C-section.  I will spare you the details, but…

Baby Hadley | Kingsport newborn photographer

Sweet baby Hadley entered the world just a few days after Christmas.  She was much anticipated and has already brought so much joy to her family!  Congratulations, you guys!

Baby Landry | Kingsport newborn photographer

This is the third time I’ve been able to photograph this darling family.  I got to photograph big sister’s newborn photos and also did a family Christmas mini for them once.  I was so excited for them when they told me they were expecting again.  We had a lot of fun making sure that there wasn’t anything “too girly” in the photos, yet keeping…

Welcome baby Alex | Kingsport newborn photographer

My sweet baby Alex arrived early August and the whole family is just smitten.  He is so wonderful and has brought so much joy to our family.  I was really worried about having 5 kids, but my older ones have been such a help and it’s actually way easier than having one or two.  When I first got started with newborn photography, I sort…

Baby Jaelyn | Kingsport newborn photographer

Baby Jaelyn made her sweet entrance into the world last month!  Of course, her mom brought a bunch of things she had made herself and they all worked together perfectly.  I love that we were able to incorporate the colors from her wedding into the newborn photos!  She is darling and they were so proud of her.  She woke up for quite a while,…

Baby Nolan | Kingsport newborn photographer

There is nothing more flattering than when a family returns to you for their photos.  It makes my day!  I photographed this darling big sister as a newborn and it was such a privilege to photograph her brother.  Isn’t he darling?  They brought some props that were meaningful to them:  Dad’s childhood truck, a milk pail, a set of antlers, and a vintage baseball….

Baby Violet | Kingsport newborn photographer

When this father told me they had named their daughter Violet, I was so excited that I had purple on hand!  I loved being able to make this photo a little more special for them.  These parents have been living in the U.S. for a few years now and were so excited to welcome their sweet daughter into their family.  Her mother and his…

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…

Baby Weylin | Kingsport newborn photographer

Baby Weylin is the youngest of FIVE kids. His four siblings? They’re all girls. His dad is the Doctor at Archway Chiropractic on Fort Henry Drive. He specializes in Pregnancy and Children’s chiropractic. One day he came to me and asked if I would be interested in doing photos of his son for the office. So, if you want to see what these images…

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…

Baby Charlotte | Kingsport newborn photographer

Isn’t she PRECIOUS! She was teeny tiny, but had the LONGEST eyelashes! And her sister….This is one of my favorite sibling photos!

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…

Baby Emmaline | Kingsport newborn photographer

I’m so happy to be blogging this sweet baby.  She was so squishy and so sweet.  She let me pose her every way I wanted to (which is rare) and I just adored her.  And that shot with her mother?  One of the most precious I’ve taken.  Everyone needs newborn photos 🙂

Baby James | Kingsport newborn photographer

Sweet baby James. He had NO desire to sleep. It’s a good thing I like his mom, because we were able to hang out for quite some time before he finally passed out (and then it was smooth sailing from there). Speaking of his mom, she is one of the best people EVER. She brings me flowers when my babies are born and will…

Baby Lucas | Kingsport Newborn Photographer

One of the perks of doing newborn photos for people you know is being able to see their pregnancy lived out on facebook. Let’s just say that this little guy has been GREATLY anticipated. His grandmother posted multiple updates about his entrance into the world (she was obviously tickled about her first grandchild). And he’s even had his own hashtag for quite a while….

Baby Olivia | Kingsport newborn photographer

This gorgeous baby’s mom was introduced to my work through a friend she goes to church with. Ever since she liked my page, she’s been commenting on my newborn photos. It made it a little easier to plan her session when I knew which photos of mine she really loved! She was a really good little sleeper. I haven’t had a baby sleep quite…

Baby Emery | Kingsport newborn photographer

One of the best parts of my job is getting to hang out with new parents. There is just something so special about that first baby! This sweet baby has some of the STRONGEST legs of any baby of I have ever photographed. I’ve never seen anything quite like it. Her mom is a dancer and proudly proclaimed that she must have dancer legs….

Baby Micah | Kingsport Newborn Photographer

What a SWEET little family this is! These little kids just ADORE their new baby.

Ava’s 9-month session | Kingsport child photographer

This adorable little girl is growing like a weed.   We photographed these in her grandfather’s front yard and I think it was a perfect location.  As usual, she was surrounded by so many people who love her!  Her momma is in med school and wasn’t able to make it to her photo session (which killed her, I’m sure!).  But she sent her sister and…
