Baby H Coming Soon | Maternity


With the permission of Keely & Scott, I am beyond thrilled to share with you that these amazing two lovebirds will be welcoming a bundle in March 2015!

Keely & Scott were one of my FIRST weddings back in 2012 (see their post here) and I absolutely love them with crazy amounts of my heart. When Keely first contacted me, she said that they just wanted a sweet "love" session. After another email, she spilled the beans and told me she was pregnant and they wanted to use the session to announce it! I LOVE how couples are using photos to announce to friends and family! It makes me sooo excited to be in on a little secret for a few weeks and then I get all giddy when its revealed! eeek! Since Keely is now 12 weeks along, this session was to celebrate their continuing love and adoration for each other and their adorable puppers Dolly! Isn't she the cutest?! I'm so thrilled to share these and see how wonderful of parents these two will be! :D

Congratulations you two...three! :D

Floral Inspired Engagement Session


There comes a time when it feels amazing to walk in a field barefoot, wear a flower crown and sit amongst candle lit mason jars with your soon-to-be. This was the vision I had for a couple of months of a beautiful couple, in the wilderness snuggled around each other with flowers everywhere! Flowers are always such a large part of the wedding day, and looking back on mine, carrying my bouquet was one of my favorite parts of the day…it was just beautiful and made ME feel beautiful! So why only be surrounded by stunning florals on your wedding day…why not in your engagement session too? I reached out to my wonderful florist, Sassafras Flowers in Knoxville, TN that created my wedding day florals and asked her to be a part of this romantic vision I had.

From Allie at Sassafras:
“I was thrilled with the opportunity to collaborate with Kayla F Photography on this shoot. She gave me very loose parameters, which allowed for wide-open interpretation.  I knew the shoot was going to involve wooded areas, open fields, and little to no manmade structure.  I wanted to create pieces that complimented the beauty of nature instead of competing with it.  The garland and floral crown were inspired by the dark, thick areas of the forest: an abundance of foliage in varying shades and textures with sparsely placed accent flowers.  I wanted the lush greenery and florals to look "at home" in the setting of the shoot.”

Allie capture my vision perfectly and created a stunning floral swag, flower crown, bouquet and small accent pieces. She blew me away with how she took my small vision and brought it to life! I collaborated with Restoration Rentals in need of a small piece of furniture to make the shoot feel more “homey”. The vintage headboard was the perfect accent to set the scene without taking away from the beauty of our location!

Barbara & Danny | Married


February 12, 2013. That is when this incredible lady emailed me about an engagement session for her and her soon-to-be husband. She was referred by some of my ALL time favorite they HAD to be awesome...right?!! Omgsh...I couldn't be more right! I immediately fell in love with Barbara & Danny. They weren't from Knoxville, but they decided to make it their home. They were quiet, they were new, but they were so much of what I was looking for! I remember leaving their engagement session and thinking to myself, "I hope they choose me!". I was a lucky girl...because they did!

Fast forward to June of 2014. Barbara is a rock. Let me just say this girl had her entire wedding planned within a month. No lie. She is a wedding force to be reckoned with. I have clients that I check in on a good amount to make sure everything is well, they aren't feeling overwhelmed and they know I am there for any questions that they may have. I was the same way with Barbara, but there was a different feeling to our chats. I knew she had everything together, she just wanted to make sure that what she had already put together was perfect..and it was, it SO was!!!

So without further adieu, here is the amazing day of Barbara & Danny! There was prep, there was love, there was the most incredible light you've ever seen...and it was all for them. June 8, 2014 was the most perfect of all days!

I also have to add that my amazing second shooter Anna Hedges of Anna Hedges Photography absolutely rocked my socks off! She's the bomb...look her up! :D
