I am so fortunate to love in the Great Smoky Mountains! The national park just completed one of the most beautiful parkways that Tennessee has to offer. The views this drive offers is absolutely amazing! Usually driving in the park, traffic gets jammed because there is a bear in sight. On this road, traffic stops for the unbelievable mountain views! The entrance to this section of the parkway is only 20 minutes from my home, so this is such a treat. I cannot wait for a cloudy day!
I am always trying to find new editing styles and I came across this vintage-y one to try on a nature shot. What do ya think??

Some exciting news!
It has been a long time coming, but I have finally opened an online gallery for ordering prints of my photography! I have over 120 images all categorized for easy viewing. From the Great Smoky Mountains, down to the Florida Keys and adventures in between, every artistic print is available for purchase. Through this site, you can order many different sizes and styles. My personal favorites are canvases and prints on metallic paper. Imagine the shimmer on those star shots! You can also choose to have it printed on actual metal. How cool is that? Check it out!

Forks of the River Sunflowers
I was thrilled to finally have visited a sunflower field, let alone when a storm was rolling in. As soon as I pulled up, I became ecstatic with the dark, ominous clouds rolling in. What awesome contrast! The sunflowers are now passed their prime, but they are definitely something to CHECK OUT in the future!
The Sunsphere is Knoxville, Tennessee’s most beautiful icon! I am so fortunate to be from East TN! Spring has sprung, warmer weather has arrived, and I am venturing out more with my camera.
Man, night photography is my all-time favorite! The photo overlooking Downtown was taken from the 9th floor of the Langley Parking Garage.
If you were to ask me what the definition of family is, I would show you some of these photos. Our busy lives can lead us in different directions, but this loving family came together for a vacation to the Great Smoky Mountains. I was honored to capture their memories here! The light was perfect for this evening session.
I had an amazing, spur-of-the moment opportunity to photograph this benefit fashion show to support clean water in Tennessee! 100% of proceeds went to Tennessee Clean Water Network
Thank you, Daniel Patton, for hooking me up!
I have been given an amazing opportunity! My close friend, Jason, owns the awesome Creative Carvers in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee- located in Wears Valley at the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains. He has a small shop space and has asked to fill it with my work! I put in an order of canvases of my favorites. Please excuse my cell phone quality photo. The sunflower canvas is actually framed and bordered in gold. I am so thrilled with the quality of these prints!
I even went as far as test my graphic design ability and made a proof for a magnet (bottom image). It is always good to step out of the comfort zone! You never know who is interested in something… you’re not! So I’m trying my photography on different products.
