Shields Family >>> Knoxville Family Photographer

These are my people. My very best friend since we were 15 years old and formed a friendship at the local swimming pool when we were both singing U2's With or Without You, opera style at the top of our lungs. :) God has been so gracious to gift me with such a special friend like her. A lifelong friend. One that I've been able to walk along side through some hard times and the best of times.  Last year they spent the year in Japan as a family and although I know it was an incredible experience for them and a time of growth as a family, we are SO glad they're back. I'm so glad we got to document the beauty of their little family recently. Love you guys so much! "Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them. Hate what is wrong. Hold tightly to what is good. Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other." Romans 12:9-10

2016 Mama and Me Mini Sessions at The Hive

2016-02-08_0003 I am so excited to announce that on Saturday February 27, I am offering a very special mini session event for mamas and their children. This event will be held at The Hive near downtown Knoxville. The Hive is a beautiful indoor urban location that offers floods of natural light and a variety of cozy places for us to shoot you and your little ones cuddled up together. Seriously, it is so gorgeous in there and I am beyond excited to take my clients there!

I know that as a mother I am pretty much always the one taking our family photos and it’s difficult and rare for me to be in the frame with my children. So, that’s why I wanted to take a day out to focus on you mamas and the connections you share with your most precious treasures.

I was so excited to photograph this sweet family again. I photographed them about 2 years ago and absolutely loved meeting them and spending time with them. I knew I was going to love this session because when mom contacted me she wanted me to get some outdoor family photos and to get some of them in their home just documenting their everyday. Which is one of my favorite things to do! Enjoy this sweet session of this beautiful family. 2016-01-11_00042016-01-11_00052016-01-11_00062016-01-11_00072016-01-11_00082016-01-11_00092016-01-11_00102016-01-11_00112016-01-11_00122016-01-11_00132016-01-11_00142016-01-11_00152016-01-11_00162016-01-11_0017

The Metz Family >>> Knoxville Family Photographer

I love to photograph this family. They are the best. I think I love them so much because they remind me so much of my own family. Our sessions always consist of lots of knock knock jokes and plenty of little boy humor, aka, replicating sounds of certain bodily functions. haha! I'm always so excited to see them and catch up with them. Enjoy their sweet session from this fall. 2016-01-07_00182016-01-07_00192016-01-07_00202016-01-07_00212016-01-07_00222016-01-07_00232016-01-07_00242016-01-07_00252016-01-07_00262016-01-07_00272016-01-07_0028

The Wise Family >>> Knoxville Family Photographer

So, if you haven't heard me talking about how in love I am with Nicole and her styling services and how much I love offering that to clients, PLEASE let me introduce you! :) Nicole has been a wonderful friend of mine for years and I have loved that we partnered up this year to start offering these services to my clients. All of my clients that have worked with her, love her. I even had clients at my Christmas sessions that were scheduled between two other families that were styled by her, immediately contacting her after their session to book her services because they were so impressed after seeing her work. She's fabulous. Really, I can't say enough about her. If you want more deets on her styling services be sure to check that out here. BUT besides that, I just LOVE her and her family to pieces. I mean, really, she is a dear friend and am so thankful the Lord put us together as friends. This fall, I got to photograph her and her beautiful crew. And of course, she styled them. Don't they look amazing? Love you Wise family! 2015-12-28_00012015-12-28_00022015-12-28_00032015-12-28_00042015-12-28_00052015-12-28_00062015-12-28_0007

Raby Family Christmas Session >>> Knoxville Family Photographer

Out of all my Christmas sessions this year I only had 2 new clients (because my previous clients snatched these sessions up so quickly :) ) and this sweet family was one of those. I am so glad I got to photograph them because they were just such a joy to be with. Their boys were so sweet and I immediately hit it off with mom. Their session was one of my favorites this year because it was just so easy to see how much they love each other. Merry Christmas Raby family! I look forward to getting to know your family more!

Hunt Family Christmas Tree Farm Session >>> Knoxville Family Photographer

I love seeing my BSP babies grow! Sweet Caroline is a Christmas baby and I got to photograph her for the first time as a newborn, you can see that here. I've completely fallen in love with their family and I just felt instantly connected to her mama the first time we met. You know those people you are just completely comfortable around as soon as you meet them? Yep, that's her mama. I am so glad I've been able to photograph them over the past two years and see this sweet girl grow. Merry Christmas Hunt Family! 2015-12-03_00082015-12-03_00092015-12-03_0010

Rice Family >>> Knoxville Family Photographer

  Oh my goodness how I love this family and if you know them, you do too. They were some of my very first clients and I have been able to photograph them many times and I am so happy to say that they have become much more than clients, but treasured friends. Lexi and I have connected through motherhood and I love that the Lord has brought us together to pray for and encourage one another. I was so glad we got to do a family session this year with them at the Christmas tree farm. This crew always keeps me laughing and this session was no exception. I hope you enjoy these photos of this beautiful family. Merry Christmas Rice Family!

Ellie turns 4 >>> Knoxville Lifestyle Photographer

I can't believe that today we celebrated our Ellie's 4th birthday. 4 just seems so big to me. She is definitely the wild card in our family. She keeps us on our toes and definitely keeps a smile on our faces. Her smile seriously lights up a room. I am beyond blessed and so so incredibly in love with her. I always thought I would only have boys. I just thought it suited my personality more but I cannot imagine not having her and how she brings such a sweetness to our family. She's got her daddy wrapped around her finger. Tonight he was looking at photos of her with me and he said "when she gets married, you're going to have to carry me out of there on a stretcher because I'll be weeping so much." My heart. I love her. Thank you Jesus for the sweet gift you have given us in this precious little life. Happy Birthday baby.  -Mama

McClinton Family >>> Knoxville Family Photographer

I can't say enough how sweet it was to photograph this sweet family. I've gone to church with Mark and Ashley for years and it's been a blessing to see their family grow. Their little ones are precious and they made my job so easy. Enjoy these sweet photos of this lovely family. 2015-12-08_00012015-12-08_00022015-12-08_00032015-12-08_00042015-12-08_00052015-12-08_00062015-12-08_00072015-12-08_00082015-12-08_00092015-12-08_00102015-12-08_0011

Gandy Family Christmas Mini >>> Knoxville Family Photographer

Oh my goodness! I love Christmas tree farm sessions. Every year I love them more. I don't usually post these until close to Christmas but since Thanksgiving is over, I figured I could go ahead. Plus I officially got the go ahead from mom because the cards went out today and I have seen it and I didn't spoil it! :) I've been fortunate enough to photograph this family several times and I always look forward to spending time with them. They are just so sweet and loving with each other as you can see! I look forward to sharing more from these fun sessions over the next few weeks! Merry Christmas! 2015-11-30_00112015-11-30_00122015-11-30_00132015-11-30_0014

The Noll Family >>> Knoxville Family Photographer

This family. Oh my goodness. I just love getting to photograph them. Their newborn session is still my absolute favorite. You can see that here. So, I was so excited to photograph them for their one year pictures. I love shooting clients at home. It is just so relaxed and comfortable and I always feel like it shows in their images. Thank you so much Noll family for letting me photograph your beautiful family again! Enjoy these sweet photos... 2015-11-02_00012015-11-02_00022015-11-02_00032015-11-02_00042015-11-02_00052015-11-02_00062015-11-02_00072015-11-02_00082015-11-02_00092015-11-02_00102015-11-02_00112015-11-02_00122015-11-02_0013

Stephens Family >>> Knoxville Family Photographer

This family's session was easily one of my favorite sessions from this fall. They were so much fun and loving towards one another.  Mom and Dad were celebrating 10 years of marriage and wanted to do some photos since it has been a really long time since they've had any done. Well, I am just so glad they chose me to photograph them because I had the best time hanging out with this gorgeous family. Enjoy these sweet photos! 2015-10-29_00022015-10-29_00032015-10-29_00042015-10-29_00052015-10-29_00062015-10-29_00072015-10-29_00082015-10-29_00092015-10-29_0010

Trusty Family >>> Knoxville Family Photographer

Oh my goodness how I love this family. They are so special to me because they were my very first clients. I know I say that every time I photograph them but it is so special to me because they were the first people to trust me with their family memories and that is so special to me. I love photographing them more and more each time because they are just so easy. I mean, really. They are crazy about each other and it shows. And that makes me a very, very happy photographer. Love you guys. Enjoy your photos. 2015-10-26_00102015-10-26_00112015-10-26_00122015-10-26_00132015-10-26_00142015-10-26_00152015-10-26_00162015-10-26_0017

Geist Family >>> Knoxville Family Photographer

Fall is my favorite and busiest time of year and one of the reason I love it so much is because I get to meet so many new and wonderful families. This family is the perfect example. They were so sweet and easy to photograph. Their love for their sweet baby girl is all over their faces. I loved hearing mom at our session keep saying to her daughter "I could just eat you up with a spoon!" I totally know the feeling and I love seeing that love come through in photographs. Our session was a little different because shortly in the sky grew very dark and scary and we ended up running for the cars! We met back up the very next night to finish our session but I love how we got this beautiful dramatic light the first night and a gorgeous sun filled session the very next night. Enjoy these photos of a very sweet family! Happy Birthday Ms. M! Style by Nicole Wise Styling

Claxton Family >>> Knoxville Family Photographer

I get asked all the time what is my favorite thing to photograph and besides my own family, it would have to be families. I have truly fallen in love with family photography. Maybe it's because I'm a mother with a young family and I know how good, wonderful, crazy and hard these days are. And how I want to remember how special they were with all my heart. Every time I'm with a family I feel like there is so much there for me to capture. So much connection, so many emotions, especially with little ones. ha! And I'm so thankful that I'm at a place where I am attracting the clients that get what I do and want me to do what I do, which is to put all those wonderful elements into photographs, even if that doesn't mean everyone looking at the camera with perfect smiles. So, for that I thank you. Now to this wonderful family. I've been able to photograph this sweet family several times and I've also been privileged to shoot births with Alissa because she is a doula with Open Heart Doula, which is really an incredible group of women who have some of the most beautiful servants hearts and have such a passion and love for mothers. Do check them out! I hope you enjoy these photos of this gorgeous family!2015-10-13_00012015-10-13_00022015-10-13_00032015-10-13_00042015-10-13_00052015-10-13_00062015-10-13_00072015-10-13_00082015-10-13_00092015-10-13_00102015-10-13_00112015-10-13_00122015-10-13_00132015-10-13_0014
