The moment I stepped out of my car at this Georgia vineyard, I felt like I had been transported to the Californian or Italian countryside. CloudTree Vineyard‘s 40 acre property sits on top of lush rolling hills. One not only enjoys beautiful views of their 10 acres of grapes, but a priceless view of Pigeon […]

You know that feeling when everything just comes together beautifully? That was the feeling of this styled photoshoot! While the collaboration of several woman-run businesses made the event extra beautiful, the main credit should be given to Vanessa at Moser Manor Farm. This event was the product of her vision. She provided the beautiful setting […]

Moser Manor Farm – Spring Tea Party

When your creative outlet becomes your career, one can easily push parts of one’s creative voice to the backseat while dreaming up art for other people. I certainly wouldn’t trade my business, but several creative mentors reminded me lately that it’s good to take the time to make low-pressure art for yourself. So that’s something […]

In yesterday’s post, I discussed the benefits and considerations for scheduling an in-home lifestyle photography session. Today, I thought I would fully balance out the discussion by contrasting with the benefits of Chattanooga photography studio sessions.

I know a lot of Chattanooga family photographers primarily schedule family sessions outdoors. The Scenic City has many beautiful, natural back drops. I can totally understand why outdoor sessions are a go-to option. However, in-home sessions are a great option too.
