Knoxville Family Photographer


I often get asked if I photograph anything but weddings and engagements. Mostly because that is what I feature most. My work started out in portraiture over nine years ago. My love for photography began when I picked up my first real camera to photograph my daughter. I enjoy working with families and capturing those special milestones and moments. I especially enjoy working with the same families over a several-year period fo time. I get to see the kids grow up and the family mature. It truly is a special thing to see and capture.



When I capture families and children in portraits, I enjoy a different approach. I try to catch the children in a natural relaxed setting, allowing them to play and interact with their other family members. I enjoy approaching this work as a lifestyle photographer, capturing the moments, rather than the pose. It is those moments that make family sessions special and with children, you only get a second or two to capture those moments sometimes.


I am honored to be a licensed Great Smoky Mountain Wedding Photographer. That privilege allows me to capture engagements, weddings and portrait sessions anywhere within the National Park. If you are up for the adventure or coming into the Smokies from out of town, let's get in touch and schedule an adventerous family session in the Smoky Mountains.



Let's chat about your family session and capture those loved ones in the perfect location. You can view more details about my Portrait Packages and pricing, or contact me to check my availability or book your session today.
