Marcus and I had our baby shower at Brixx Pizza Sunday and had a great time. I owe a big thank you to my friend Christa for organizing and hosting. We really appreciate all of our friends who were able to come out and celebrate with us including Matt Browne who was nice enough to take a few photos for the baby book. After pizza, we enjoyed a very delicious carrot cake from Magpies, and we didn't have to play any embarrassing shower games!

Even though I am a photographer and know that it is best to do maternity photos much earlier than the 35th week, I somehow managed to keep putting it off. Although I'm now feeling very huge with the lovely stretch marks and swollen ankles that go along with late pregnancy, we did snap a few maternity shots after the shower. For our out-of-town friends and family who have been asking about the bump, here you go. Keep in mind that the official due date isn't until September 6, more than a month away.

Sarah & Matt Fielden were married at New Market Baptist back in March but waited until everything turned warm and green to do their photo session together. Sarah had two beautiful dresses for her wedding, one for the ceremony and one for the exit, so she used both for the photos. She also had sexy shoes that just had to be shown!

Kendra was a bridesmaid in one of my favorite weddings last year, and I was very excited when she and Matt decided to have me photograph their June 2009 wedding. For their recent engagement session, we started at their wedding venue, the Knoxville Botanical Gardens and Arboretum, and ended in downtown Knoxville. It was a beautiful spring day, and the four of us (Marcus was with me) had fun hanging out and getting to know each other better. Here are a few of my favorite photographs.

Over the last two weeks I have heard from several clients who have either become pregnant or given birth recently. Many of these happy couples are now asking about maternity, baby, or family portraits. To celebrate everyone's exciting news, I'm offering a portrait special to all of my existing clients. I'm taking $100 off the regular $125 session fee for all portrait sessions including maternity, high school senior, baby, family, boudoir, model portfolio, and non-wedding couple sessions.

Details: All sessions are done on a weekday at a location of your choice within Knoxville, but I will travel up to 1.5 hours with a travel fee. A $25 retainer and contract are required to hold your date and cover travel within Knoxville. You must commit to a week on the calendar, and we will agree on the specific day during the week prior. A $200 minimum purchase is required in the form of a deposit to be paid on the day of the session. The entire deposit will be applied to your first order. All sessions must be booked before November 1 and completed before May 1, 2009.

Email (link to the right) or call today for more information or to book.

Congratulations Special for existing clients

Park West Church of God, Knoxville, TN

Dena and Nate were married Saturday at Park West Church of God in Knoxville, but this wasn't your typical church wedding. Although some guests may have missed the fact that the flower girl threw lucky pennies instead of rose petals as she was carried down the aisle, I don't think that anyone will forget the bride's entrance. Dena started down the aisle with traditional music, but the song suddenly changed to an unexpected rock song by one of the couple's favorite bands.

The quirkiness continued with their choice of music for the first dance, and it was obvious that these two were making the day their own by injecting their own personalities into the wedding.

With an afternoon ceremony and reception inside the church, we had plans to do couple photos outdoors after the reception. Some ominous clouds threatened to disrupt our plans, but it quickly dried up after only a brief shower. We shot a bit around a park near the church and then headed out to a field that I had driven by on the way to the church. As some of you may know, I've been wanting to shoot a bride with some hay all year long, and I finally had the bride and the hay to make it work.
