Summer Mini Sessions

We are so grateful for the full lineup of Summer Mini Sessions we were able to shoot this summer season. We always try to offer a variety of sessions to have something for everyone. Some of our favorite sessions included Bleak House Summer, UT Gardens, Tea Party, Cove Lake Flowers, and Creek sessions.

Bleak House We always love being at the beautiful Bleak House (or Confederate Memorial Hall). It’s rich, historical charm always enchants our clients and the “white room” seems to be the perfect setting for just about any type of photos. Interestingly, the Bleak House is on the National Register of Historic Places.

UT Gardens We are proud to have a professional membership at UT Gardens which allows us to enjoy shooting sessions on the property as well as supporting the work that is done there. It is beautiful year round but the summer blooms are always stunning for our summer mini sessions!

Tea Party Sessions at Norris Dam State Park This special spot at Norris provided just the right touch of “magic” for our little tea party sessions. These were such a hit for little girls, sisters, and best friend groups. As you can see, it was so fun and dreamy for our little SCP princesses.

Cove Lake State Park Flowers For the first time, Cove Lake planted a small field of yellow wild flowers that was the perfect summer setting for photos. We decided to jump in at the last minute and shoot a few sessions out there, and were were so glad we did!

Creek Sessions at Stock Creek Preserve We visited Stock Creek Preserve for the first time for our creek sessions. Everyone loved playing in the creek, and we enjoyed trying something new.

We are thankful for a busy and fun summer season and are gearing up for a busy Fall! You can always find our summer mini sessions as well as Spring, Fall, and Christmas sessions on our booking site. We usually announce our sessions in advance and try to offer as many spots as we can so everyone that wants in can get a spot! This Fall we will be back at Norris, Cove Lake, UT Gardens, and the private property in LaFollette. We hope to see you soon!
