Children are likely to live up to what you believe of them. — Lady Bird Johnson

From what Samantha has written and captured, we think these children can grow up to be ANYTHING their heart desires!

What We Love:

Samantha: My favorite thing about this session wasn’t just the amazing fall weather with all the warm colors, but also that the family I was photographing is very special to me. The husband of the family is the preacher of my church, and his children are just such a joy to be around. I wrote about the session in my blog and included Psalm 127:3-5 which talks about how children are a gift from the Lord. Watching them innocently play and pose for these images was such a rewarding shoot, and we couldn’t have asked for better weather!

Lisa and Rachel: We love the creativity and freedom in these fall lifestyle photography images.  We also love how Samantha shared how personal this session was to her and how she wanted to capture the joy of the children; which she most certainly captured.  Samantha is a young photographer at only 23 and we find her photos to be stunning, we look forward to continuing to follow her work and watch her art evolve.

Location: Knoxville, TN

Gear: Canon T3i Rebel with a 35mm lens
