Audrey and little Jack are two little children that are bursting with personality! I had so much fun photographing them at the Oak Ridge Arboretum earlier today. Audrey adored the asian parasol that we used, and she looked absolutely sensational posing with it in front of the gigantic cherry tree. Little handsome Jack was a bit more shy in front of the camera, but little does he know how photogenic he really is. I sure hope I get to photograph them again. These guys are a HOOT! :o)

A few weeks ago my family took a short vacation down in FL where we visited family, and of course, the BEACH. It was a long anticipated break from the cold weather and snow we were having up here in Knoxville. My friend, Loida, heard that I was coming down and wanted some photos taken of her in the sand in beautiful Melbourne, FL. The day was gorgeous, but unfortunately the water was sooo COLD. Loida was defintely a trooper! Being a deputy herself, she has already proven that she can handle just about anything. Including freezing water. She is absolutely stunning! A true beauty on the beach. :o)
May I introduce to you Jill and her beautiful family. These are the family's first portraits since little precious Eileen has been born, and was taken in Maryville, TN, on the hottest day of the season thus far. Although there weren't any flower blossoms at the time these photos were taken, they just speak SPRING! I hope you enjoy these photos, and I hope to one day photograph this beautiful family again. Especially adorable Eileen!!

Spring! Spring! Spring! Oh how I have longed for your much awaited arrival. You are my favorite of seasons most of all. Even before Autumn. To me, Spring is the epitome of freshness, purity, and dreaminess. Speaking of dreamy, here are a few images from my session today. What better way to welcome spring via photography than embracing the soft tones of the season. Here are the Matney children. Aren't they just lovely? :o)

It's Springtime!!! And that means it's time to update your family photos. That is exactly what the lovely Adler family just did. Janell and Josh Adler live in Chattanooga, TN, and were in town visiting family. What a perfect day it was! After all week of dreary cold weather, rain, and snow, the day of this shoot couldn't be more beautiful! It was sunny and not a single cloud in the sky. Thank you Janell and Josh for allowing me the privilege to photograph your beautiful family. This session was taken at the Knoxville Botanical Gardens. :)

My first official Spring Session for the year. Are these boys not the cutest little Darlings EVER! Say hello to Robin's beautiful grand babies. Robin is a sweet friend and co worker of mine. We have worked for the same company for a few years together, and now I have the honor of capturing some cherished memories for her to keep forever. The daffodils were plentiful this season as always, and I wanted to take full advantage of their loveliness. Please take the time and enjoy some of my favorite images from today's shoot.
