Sweet 16 | Chattanooga Lifestyle Photographer

Sometimes a client asks me to do something a little different. This session was very much like a senior session in a lot of ways, but the beautiful Savannah was celebrating her Sweet Sixteenth Birthday and she and her family asked me to capture her at this very awesome milestone.

And can I just say... WOW!  What a gorgeous girl!

She is stunning, the light was stunning, the location couldn't have been prettier...

Everything came together in a perfect storm of awesome!  In addition, Savannah and her family were just about the most amazing people I've ever had the pleasure of working with. 

At one point, we had attracted a crowd of kids who apparently thought the American Idol star, Lauren Alaina, was shooting an album cover in the field.  It was pretty funny... And I was really glad Savannah's dad was there to shoo the lookey-loo's away!

For a girl who isn't that into mucking about in nature, Savannah was a trooper in her field...

Jill, Jon and Baby | Chattanooga Maternity Photographer

Remember sweet Connor?  Well, back when he was just a little bun, I got to spend some time with his (very excited) Momma- and Daddy-to-be for a maternity session.

We chose a location that means a bunch to this couple and ventured out at dawn on what ended up being the hottest day of the year (troopers!) and captured some absolutely stunning light before it got too uncomfortable, then we went back to their home to finish up our session.  That's the beauty of a custom portrait session - full control over your location or locations and the ability to integrate your story and personality into the experience!

And this couple brought personality - in spades!  Look at how amazingly in love these two are!

I love - love - the excitement of expecting a baby - especially the first baby!  It just doesn't get much sweeter than that. 

And I believe that no matter how many stretch marks or extra pounds accompany a pregnancy, or how it might change a momma's skin, there really is not a time in a woman's life where she looks more radiant and beautiful than when she's carrying a baby.

*sigh* Love.  Just... love.

Can you get over her adorable bump?!  Aaaw!  

Amazing, isn't it, what a woman's body can do?  Love!
