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 10 days BEFORE me.  Which I’m okay with now.  So…here are Stephanie’s maternity photos.  And I love them. We were excited because it had started to warm up, but then we hit a cold front and it was FREEZING.  But you can’t tell.  They are going to be such great parents and I can’t wait to meet little Hailey soon!2017-05-02_00072017-05-02_00062017-05-02_00052017-05-02_00042017-05-02_00032017-05-02_00022017-05-02_0001

My son just turned twelve.  Well.  Honestly.  He turned twelve a long time ago, but I wasn’t able to photograph him until recently.  He was not amused.  I’ve been really struggling to photograph my own family lately and I finally just grabbed him one morning and told him to head out to the backyard.  He was slightly annoyed because he really wanted to go hang out with his friends, but I was making him do this first.  So I kept it short and got what I wanted.  He’s growing up to be such a handsome young man.  2017-02-17_00142017-02-17_00112017-02-17_00122017-02-17_0013

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 some of the photos, you can see SNOW falling.  She used my maternity gown from Sew Trendy Accessories.  I have two of them now available for my clients and they are just stunning.  I can’t wait for her little boy to get here in March!  2017-02-17_00092017-02-17_00022017-02-17_00032017-02-17_00042017-02-17_00052017-02-17_00062017-02-17_00072017-02-17_0008

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 was all over, so it was win-win for everyone.  2017-02-16_00022017-02-16_0003

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!2017-02-15_00012017-02-15_00032017-02-15_00042017-02-15_00052017-02-15_0006

Taylor and Savannah | Kingsport Wedding Photographer

Taylor and Savannah met while going to school in Idaho.  Someone was looking for a math tutor and another someone was eager and willing to help. I got to hear ALL about it at the wedding reception when Savannah’s uncle gave a really sweet little speech.  Because Taylor is from Utah, they were married then and then had a reception at the International Storytelling Center in Jonesborough.   They told me that they spent FOUR hours doing wedding photography in Utah, so I kept our little portrait session short and sweet.  We were done in about 5 minutes with them and about 15 minutes for the extended family.  The party was hopping and everything went beautifully!  Here’s to many happy years together!  2016-12-15_00022016-12-15_00032016-12-15_00042016-12-15_00052016-12-15_00062016-12-15_00072016-12-15_00082016-12-15_0009
