Sarah, Amber & Katie ~ end of summer session!

August 18, 2009

What’s more fun than getting your girlfriends together, dressing cute and getting photos made?
Sarah, Amber and Katie are all Carter High students. They wanted to do some fun photos before school started back, so we shot a session in downtown Knoxville last week. The girls were hilarious! They reminded me so much of my core group of gf’s from high school ***ESP holla!***

Hope you ladies had as much fun as I did. Study hard and GO HORNETS!

Eli & Trey ~~ downtown Knoxville, TN

August 18, 2009

Full ‘O Energy! If only I could bottle it up and sell it…
I photographed these two little lads in downtown Knoxville. They were less interested in “the birdie inside my lens” and more excited about the motorcycles parked nearby! I think after the tenth try to find the “birdie,” little Trey caught on to my nonsense. But we got some really cute shots before then.

Jayke Ryne ~ newborn portraits ~ Knoxville, TN

August 18, 2009

Baby Jayke is here! Well, actually Baby Jayke was 2 weeks early. So early, in fact, that I was still on the other side of the world in Sydney the day he was born. He didn’t wait for me! =0(
As I said before in Mama Shannon’s maternity session blog, she has always been a huge fan of Ryne Sandberg (hence the name Jayke Ryne). So imagine her excitement when she picked up the phone and Mr. Sandberg was on the other end asking how Jayke Ryne was doing! Apparently a friend of hers who works with the Tennessee Smokies baseball team told Mr. Sandberg that about Shannon naming her firstborn after him. Now we are all anxiously awaiting Smokies onesies and mini-baseball bats! I bet we know what Jayke Ryne will be wearing for his 3 month photo session…

Heather & Matthew ~ 7.25.09 ~ Gallatin, TN wedding

August 11, 2009

I’ve often said that once you’ve lived on a tour bus with someone, you are family. By that definition, Matthew is family! We met when we both worked with a touring music festival that was the brainchild of his father, Jeff, in ’03 called ShoutFest. Some of my very best friends and long lasting relationships have come from that tour and ShoutFest will forever have a soft spot in my heart. **sigh!** I miss the road!

Matthew met Heather in bible study class at their church (how presh!) and never looked back. They were married at Long Hollow Baptist’s Gallatin campus. I was honored to be their photographer, and I thoroughly enjoyed the SF03 mini-reunion!

Loni & Brandon ~ Nashville engagement photos

August 11, 2009

I can spot a fellow dancer or someone who has been in front of the camera from a mile away, so I knew this would be fun! With tons of modeling experience, Loni was easy to photograph. She knows how to be expressive and work the camera. Brandon claimed he was nervous, but it didn’t show at all! (You did fabulous, B!)
We hit downtown Nashville and check out the sunset…wow!

I met Loni when she was a bridesmaid in Adam & Angela’s wedding last year. We all had a blast that day, just as I’m sure we will for her big day in October. Can’t wait guys!

Lindsay & Jessie ~ 6.20.09 ~ Adams, TN wedding

August 11, 2009

All she had to say was that she wanted to pose with the Harley. I was ready to go! Lindsay & Jessie were married at A Country Chapel in Adams, TN. We had a great time even though the sun was blaring down! Here are a few shots from the day.
