"Let all that you do be done in love." 1 Corinthians 16:14
There is an honesty that cannot be denied when a session is done in your home. It's where you're most "you." Where you're most comfortable, where life happens. The truth of your family. And I can feel all of that in this family's session. The honesty in their love for one another, it's here. Happy Birthday baby Luke! It's been an honor to photograph your sweet family this year. You are so loved.
Whew! I am super behind on blogging this fall's sessions but I wanted to post this family's sweet session from September since we have his 6 month session next week! It is always such a blessing to spend time with this family. Happy 3 months little guy! Looking forward to seeing you again next week!

I had the best time photographing this sweet family last month to kick off my fall season. Kristen is a photographer herself at Overbay Photography and when she contacted me she told me how she wanted to be fully present with her children at her session since she's always the one behind the camera. I can totally relate to that! I am so happy I got to document this sweet time with your lovely family Overbays! Enjoy these precious photos. <3

Happy 6 months little Luke! You are so loved!
This family. Oh my stars.
They contacted me to photograph them since they were expecting their third baby. Another precious girl who would complete their family. They hadn't had family pictures in years and really wanted to remember how special this time was together. You guys. This Daddy. He was made to be the daddy to girls. He was also a photographers dream family session dad. haha! He was so sweet with his girls and telling them how pretty they looked and helping fix their hairs that might be out of place. And when I took mom's photos, he kept telling her how beautiful she was. It was seriously one of the sweetest sessions I've ever been a part of. I am so honored that this sweet family chose me to photograph them this spring. Congratulations Olinger family. What a blessed little girl to be a part of your precious family. <3
Oh goodness. All the love for this session. Love watching this sweet family grow and know them more. They love each other well, it's easy to see. <3 Happy 3 months baby Luke!
I love it when sessions end with me chatting with my clients for the longest time about how they are about to become a family of 4 and how the Lord is preparing their hearts for this new and exciting adventure. I can't wait to meet this family's new member just any old day now. Soooooo, I figured it was time to blog their spring/maternity/18 month session. I just love you guys and look forward to seeing your family grow!
I loved meeting and photographing this wonderful family this Spring. We met up at one of their favorite places and had a great time roaming around and exploring together. Enjoy these photos Derenski Family!
I'm a little behind on blogging my sessions from this spring but wanted to jump ahead today and share these photos before this beautiful mama has her babe any day now! What an incredible blessing it has been to get to know these two over the past few years. I cannot wait to see them enter into parenthood here in the next few weeks and meet this sweet and already very loved, baby girl!
I am so excited to feature these photographs of a family that is near and dear to our hearts tonight! They have been friends of ours for years and I am so thankful that they entered into our lives. I've learned so much from them about parenting and seeking the Lord as we raise our children and it was so much fun to put some of these memories into photographs for them.
I love that Christa, the mama to this beautiful family, shared some words with us after her session....
“It has been years since we have had the opportunity to have family pictures done, so this evening spent together and the memories that were captured are indescribably special to us. Each picture really captures the personality and essence of our individual child, and our family as a whole. Having a larger family is sometimes, as my husband says, “like a circus full of rabid squirrels,” but we wouldn’t have it any other way. The house is continually filled with laughter and crying, smiles and tears, running and crawling, peace and chaos, but we never grow tired of the faces and the presence of these Blessings the Lord has given us. And, as time will surely march on, and these Blessings grow older and march out of our lives, and into their own families, we will look at these pictures with laughter and crying. And through these pictures, these precious moments in time, the echoes of their running and crawling across the floors of our home, and the times of peace and chaos in our life will be forever etched in our minds and hearts. It is said that, ‘time waits for no one and it won’t wait for you, so use it well, and use it wisely, for who can tell when time will turn into eternity. So use the time well, teach them and instruct them in the Lord, pour into your children’s lives, love them without condition, and STOP, often, and spend time with them; fill the pages of your memories to the fullest, so when you look back on your family’s life they will be filled with tears of joy and not regret. They are the truest, purest, and most eternal Blessings the Lord has given you.”
A couple of weeks ago, I got to photograph this beautiful family in the mountains. If you know this family, you love them. They are completely adorable, have huge hearts for the Lord and will keep you cracking up the whole time you are with them. I was so excited that we got to do this styled session with them. This past spring, I was chatting with my super-stylish friend Nicole about how I would love to have styling for my clients. She has the best eye for fashion and always looks fabulous. My clients are always asking about styling and what to wear and although I do my very best to help them, I knew that having someone dedicated to them and their style needs would add an incredible element to their session, as well as make their experience with me even more fun and relaxed. So I asked Nicole if she would be interested in styling my clients, and from there Nicole Wise Styling was born. We wanted to kick off her services by doing a giveaway which we held this past Spring to also celebrate 2 years in business for me.
This sweet family was the recipient of our styled session and they were incredible to work with. It was so much fun throughout the whole process. We wanted this session to be really special and after seeing Nicole's style boards for their session, I knew I wanted to take them to the mountains. Having Nicole style them really helped me with my vision for their session and it took lots of stress off of Amanda from having to put together outfits and accessories for her family. Not to mention, she felt totally pampered having her hair and makeup done before the session. If you are interested in a styled session, you can find out more info on Nicole's services here. Enjoy these sweet photos of this wonderful family!
If you make it to the bottom, there's a little behind the scenes video from our session. Enjoy!
A few months ago I announced that styling services would be made available to my clients this fall and I am so excited to tell you all about it today! The number one question I get from clients is “What do we wear!?” And what you wear at your session really makes a huge difference in the look and feel of your images. BUT I also know that most of my clients are busy moms that have a hard time etching out time in their hectic schedules to plan their family’s wardrobe or maybe just need help figuring out what will look best on her and her family. So, I’ve brought on my super stylish friend Nicole Wise to take care of all this for you! She is incredibly talented at styling and is also a hair stylist and makeup artist.We are so excited about announcing Nicole’s services that we wanted to offer 50% off her services to her next 4 clients! This is an incredible deal and a huge stress reliever. So take a minute to get to know Nicole...
Hi, I'm Nicole! I'm a wife to my high school sweetheart, Steve. I'm mom to my little loves, 10 year old Jude and 4 year old Maci. I moved to Knoxville 8 years ago from Orange County, California and am immensely proud to call East Tennessee "home."
I love Jesus, my family, friends, coffee, macarons, fish tacos, any ocean, sunsets, and traveling. I'm most comfortable wearing leather boots, jeans, a feminine top with a leather or denim jacket. I haven't met a lip gloss I don't love and watch YouTube makeup application videos more than I should!
Creativity, fashion and beauty are an innate part of who I am. As a young girl, I cut Barbies' hair, admired and wore my mom's new and vintage jewelry, wore makeup before I was allowed, made jewelry and sketched or sewed clothes. It became very clear to me in high school that I was to make a fashion and beauty my career. So, I became a professional hairstylist and loved doing that full time prior to becoming a mom.
Becoming Bethany's stylist just makes sense! Besides being able to harness all this creative energy and experience and offer a fun service to you, I simply adore her work and am incredibly proud to be a part of it. I am really excited to offer my styling services to you.
Nicole's next 4 clients will receive 50% off their styling services so be sure to let us know if you are interested in grabbing one of these spots. You can email Nicole at firstname.lastname@example.org to get started.
Be my Stylist
I'll be your personal shopper. We will start with you completing a style questionnaire establishing your style preferences, budget and expectations. I will provide you with inspiration boards that will assist you in shopping. I will also provide you with store and price information of the recommended items. A fully styled session can involve incorporating items that you already own or purchasing an entirely new wardrobe. My goal is to style you and your family in clothes you will want to wear, not only for your session, but on a regular daily basis. This add-on service will remove stress and time, while insuring you and your family will look and feel your best.
Hair and Make Up
On location hair and makeup before and during your session.
Here is an example of one of Nicole's recent style boards for a client with the end result of her styling. Working with her this spring and summer has been wonderful because she and I are in very close contact coordinating locations with wardrobe and I really feel like it gives sessions that extra something. I hope you guys will be taking advantage of her incredible services. We have several beautifully styled sessions coming up over the next few weeks so be on the lookout! Let us know if you have any questions at all. You can contact me here or you can email Nicole directly at email@example.com.
