I met Jennifer through Noah’s mother’s day out director.  She asked me to come and take some pictures of her sweet family.  We were very lucky to be able to find a day between all of our crazy travel schedules a couple of weeks ago.  I had a great time with their 5 year old daughter Sydney.  

First we played with horses

Then we got all dressed up….these are my favorites

and then there was just enough time to get some fun pictures outside before Mark had to leave for a quick business trip.

Pay It Forward

Hey Everyone!  I know I’ve posted a TON today and I’ll hopefully post a ton tomorrow as well.  I guess it’s a good thing and it means that I’m working my way through my lengthy to-do-list.

Last Wednesday Adam, Noah, and I met up with the super funky photographer Tara Kneiser of Dixie Pixel Photography for our Pay It Forward Session.  For those of you who haven’t heard of the PIF Project or otherwise known as “Roadside Families Project“, it’s a project for photographers by photographers.  Since we all know that the cobbler’s children have no shoes, we are trying to make sure photographers don’t fall into the same category.  So John Michael Cooper of Alt-F Photography has started a pay it forward project to get photographers out from behind the camera.  Each photographer’s family that is photographed must photograph another photographer’s family in return.  Tara and I attended the Alt-F 1 day workshop in Atlanta together back in August and JMC photographed Tara’s family.  In turn, Tara has shot the Hopes of Hope Photography as well as us.  Now it’s my turn.  If you are a photographer and would like to have pictures of your family taken, email me!  I have 30 days to pay it forward.  Remember that you MUST spread the love.  If I do your pay it forward session, you HAVE to pay it forward to another photographer within 30 days.

Here are a few shots from our session.  You can see the rest on Tara’s blog HERE.



Matt and Adria’s e.session

I’m excited to be shooting Matt and Adria’s wedding next year.  We got together a couple of weeks ago to do their e.session.  We started off at Stir Fry Cafe at Turkey Creek because that’s where they met.  Well, not at THAT particular Stir Fry, but they both worked at the one of the locations.

Then we went down to The Downtown Grill and Brewery and played around in the upstairs bar.

Kristyn is a new planner in Knoxville and the owner of Panache Productions.  She asked me to take some shots of her for her website.  After going round and round on finding a date that we could get together, we finally were able to ge together for a little fun downtown.

I’m currently having word difficulties, so this is post is short on words.

 

I was hired at the last minute for Sam and Lea’s wedding at the beginning of October.  I’m glad they called me too.  It was my first go at shooting a Jewish wedding.  I had so much fun with everyone!

Lea and Sam decided to see each other before for pictures.  So they had the Trolley pick them up at the hotel and drive us around downtown to do pictures.

We started over at the Tennessee Theater…

Had a bottle of champagne along the way…

They got married after sun down which made it a little rough on taking pictures without a flash….but made for some killer B&Ws

samandlea101108pm18

They met on a hike in Austria, so they had a little mountain on their cake topper.  It was WAY cute!

This was one of the parts that I was most looking forward to!

And then there was my Blake.  He was a groomsmen and actually passed out during the ceremony.  His fiance Mimi is the girl on the far right who was also a bridesmaid.  She held it together really well.  It’s a good thing that everything was fine because we were all able to laugh about it shortly after.
