Jake's Senior Photos || Oak Ridge High School

Photographing for high school boys who don't particularly like smiling for the camera can be an interesting experience. But, when it's your brother in front of the camera and you know how to pull forth that genuine smile, it can be a lot of fun! By the way, my go-to trick is "Ok, now pretend your girlfriend is walking up and smile for the camera like you'd smile at her." Seriously, works every time.

Kristie + Ethan's Farm Engagement Shoot

Kristie and Ethan met on a farm in East Tennessee where they both worked. According to Kristie, before they started dating, "one day while at work, I was vacuuming up leaves with the lawn mower. As I attempted to turn up the hill on the side of the house, the mower got stuck. I hollered Ethan's name and he came to my rescue and pushed the mower and I up the hill. It was so embarrassing, but that moment was one of the defining moments that made me realize I really liked him." Their first date wasn't until almost 8 months later, but after closing down the coffee shop where they were chatting, Ethan got up the courage to ask Kristie out for a second date and the rest became history.

Montgomery Family Photos

As my family lives as missionaries in Guatemala, it had been at least three years since I had seen them, so I shouldn't have been surprised when the girls had grown about a foot each. At 5'6" I'm not entirely vertically challenged, but I must say it is a bit disconcerting when your cousin six years your junior towers over you. It also makes it a bit difficult to take flattering photos since I prefer to shoot from a level or high angle. Thank goodness for foot stools!

Mountaintop Graduation Shoot

There are some people you will drive two and a half hours to photograph and Megan is one of them! We had been talking about taking her senior photos since last year and I'm so excited that it came to be. The overcast morning proved a beautiful backdrop for our summit setting adding the perfect color contrast to her vibrant dress.
