Hey there, Friend!

I’m so glad you’re here.  Because, I’m hoping that means I will get to hear all about the plans you’re making.  Wedding? Baby? Boudoir?  Yes!!  When there are experiences going on in life, I want to be there with you.  Mostly because I pretty much think humans are the cat’s pajamas.

I am wrapping up my 3rd year as a Knoxville photographer after years away from the beautiful East Tennessee that I grew up in.  A big change from the almost 13 years spent on the beaches of North Carolina, our family has situated ourselves on a little 15 acre farm in West Knoxville; a “Suburban Farm,” if there is such a thing, that we call Westland Farms. I laugh a little when I say “Farm,” because while it is a real-deal farm with barn, horse stables, cattle, chickens, veggie plots, creeks, a pond, and all that this gorgeous part of Tennessee calls nature…we are right in the middle of everything that Farragut, Bearden, Northshore, and Downtown Knoxville have to offer. The best of both worlds, we think!! 

Westland Farms provides a gorgeous natural backdrop for any type of Knoxville photography, and houses my indoor photography studio.  The  studio is perfect for newborn portraits, boudoir photography, bridal portraits, and professional branding & head shots.

As for me- well, I have an affinity to all things happy, wild, and off of the beaten path.  I love color, sunshine, romance, and laughter.  I love inspirational quotes, meeting new people, flowers, the outdoors, and the idea of finishing a great book.  My go-to drink is coffee.  My outlet is dance.  And, aallllll of my free time is spent with my crew, including our German Shepherds, Gaia.

My husband, Joe and I, are parents to seven kiddos ranging in age from 20+ to 3 years old.  My default is laughter and, man!  Laughter has brought more peace to our crazy world than I ever thought possible.  I am an enneagram 3 wing 4 {say it ain’t so!}.  I am a hustler, dedicated to my family and clients and couldn’t believe more in the importance of Family, Grace, and the Grit behind a hard working human.

I am grateful that you’ve stopped by and are looking around.  I’m not certain that we’ve even met.  But, I can tell you that I am already entirely excited about working with and serving you.

Pick-up that phone and shoot me a text.  Or, call!  I am standing by!

with grit & grace

I can’t even explain what a wonderful job Sarah did with our photos. Not only did she make us feel comfortable, she was also easy to work with, and we enjoyed her sense of humor. We got our photos back in a few week’s time and are completely enamored with so many of the shots she took. My heart still sings every time I look through my pictures.







The Heart Behind What I Do

If you had the opportunity to read through my little intro up there, you likely read that I love people.   I think people are incredible, exceptional beings and need to be reminded of their unique super-hero qualities.  That’s why I’m here!  When we can get down to the nitty-gritty space of what drives you, we will capture images that will blow you away.  Not because I’m awesome…but, because you are rocking-out being you!  

Emotion drives me.  Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE laughter.  But, happy isn’t the only space that we live in.  So I have to admit that even when there are tears, I believe in that human experience.  People, stories, & moments- That’s what this crazy life is made of.  And, that’s what I’m here to capture.

 Photography gives me the platform to not only create beautiful, unique pieces of art, but it also allows me to weave relationships with others as I get to know the individuals that I am working with, to serve others in a tangible, meaningful way, and most importantly, to provide story books for my clients that will tell the stories of the most important and cherished times in their lives forever.

Doing what we do because we are unique is exactly what defines each of our lives and is the perfect picture that I strive for each time I arrive at a photo shoot of any kind.  So, my dedication to you and my family is that I work hard everyday to create experiences for my clients that fit their needs and ultimately create images that they need to document life as it is in that moment of time, images that they will need to tell their story as time passes.

I love creating beautiful things.  I love the interaction with other people. I picked-up a camera as a young person and never put it down.  And, all of those reasons are perfect, wonderful reasons to do what I do.  But, what defines the heart behind this love is my drive to create in a unique and joyful way for love-filled people.

You are a super hero.  And, I’d like to meet you.  Message me!
