whit+ fam

I've photographed Whitney and her family for as long as I've been a professional in Chattanooga. I was there to capture the first moments of her boys' lives and watching them grow has been as life-giving as breathing great, deep lungfuls of air after a rainstorm. Each of these humans overflows with kindness and joy and their infectious love for one another draws you in.  To know a family this intimately - to watch them root and bloom and turn toward the sun like sunflowers is one of my favorite parts of being a photographer. I may turn over their images to them, which they receive with excitement and joy, but I walk away with something in my possession as well: friendship.
