When choosing a professional photographer for your wedding, family, maternity, newborn, and beauty photography please ask question to make sure you are dealing with a seasoned professional who is highly skilled to produce the images that you will treasure for years to come. Here are a few things to consider and ask about:

  • Ask to see samples of albums they have created
  • How many weddings and portrait sessions do they shoot a year
  • How long have they been in business
  • Ask for three different references from the past two years
  • What products do they offer…prints, canvas, albums, custom albums
  • Do they print their own images
  • Are images professionally matted and ready for framing when delivered
  • How long before you can see your images
  • What’s the plan if there’s some sort of emergency and the lead photographer can’t get to the wedding
  • What professional training do they have
  • What industry organizations do they support and belong to (WPPI, PPA..etc)
  • Do they have a professional studio

Those are just a few of the things to keep in mind. Remember your wedding photography and portraits are going to last for generations…make sure you make a wise decision.

Elizabeth and Andrew’s home is growing…Photography of their beautiful Newborn son.

Their family is on the grow! Two little feet at a time.

Newborn Photography

Andrew and Elizabeth are creating a beautiful family that will be an inspiration to so many people. They have already lead amazing adventures over the past few years…living in the Caribbean and traveling to amazing places. They love the outdoors, people, and living one fantastic adventure at a time. A few months ago they contacted me about photographing their maternity and family photos and then with their new son arrived they brought him to the studio for his first portraits. This little guy was just amazing during the entire shoot…the strobes were flashing, music was playing, we were talking…and running around the room but he just snoozed and we kept creating images.

Newborn and Family Photography

Family times are so important, and saving those memories in print is really important too. So many images just end up on a computer hard drive or on a USB drive laying at the bottom of a drawer, never to be seen by family and friends. It’s so important to print your images and not just let them survive as digital files. We provide in studio printing to make it easy for you to display your images. The portraits are printed on beautiful heavy archival paper that is rated to last 300 years. (not sure I’ll be around for that long…but it’s nice to know that geneerations to come will enjoy them.) When you pick up your prints from our studio they are matted in archival mats and ready for you to put in to your favorite frame. In fact we will even frame your prints for you if you prefer. We are will to do anything to make sure that your beautiful prints are hanging on the walls of your home and daily reminding you of what a fantastic family you have.

It’s time for your family portraits. Call the studio today and let get you and you family stated on a plan to save all your special memories.Professional photography provided by Expressions will make your memories last a lifetime.

Saving those special moments with professional photography.

It’s been nearly two years now since I had the joy of meeting Heather. Hard to believe that time has gone so quickly. She first came to the studio with a friend of her’s just to see what a photo session in a professional studio was all about. She must have had a good first impression because just a couple of months later she had booked into the studio to do a vintage movie star look. It was her first shoot with a professional photographer in a studio but she did just amazing…I could have sworn that she had been modeling for years. We shot for a couple of hours that day and created some super images for her.

Several months later she contacted me to tell me she and her sweetheart were pregnant and they wanted me to do their maternity portraits….I love it when people put a high value on portraits and know that saving those special moments are important to them now and to generations to come. Well I not only photographed their maternity portraits but when that little girl decided to come I did her newborn images also.

A few weeks ago Heather contacted me about coming to the studio for new portraits of herself and of her family…she said the baby was nearly a year old and she wanted to celebrate her being back to he pre-maternity size…We booked a date on the calender and she showed up with the whole family…We had such a fun time catching up…we created some beautiful family portraits of the three of them…and then we created some beautiful celebration portraits of Heather…here are just a few of the portraits we created for her.

Enjoy!

A beautiful day for nature portraits in the mountains…..

This time of the year the Smokies are just busting out with color. And on a cool afternoon there’s just no better place to go and create portraits. This afternoon Whitney and I headed to the river to see what we could come up with. We shot just outside Townsend, TN in the Great Smokie Mountains. The sound of the river running over the rocks and the birds singing just made this shoot location amazing. There is a motto for this little community that says it’s the Quite Side of the Smokies…it’s so true this is such a peaceful place to create images.

Engagement Session with Roxanne and Matthew….

It’s less then three months before their wedding celebration…and they are both so excited. We went out this afternoon to capture some engagement images to help this never forget this amazing time in their lives. Roxanne had a bag full of fun stuff to use in the shoot…and tons of fun ideas. We spent a couple of hours walking around the gardens chatting, laughing and capturing images.
