My focus and education is all about family photography. My main goal is real smiles, a fun time, and stress-free experience.

After shooting a lot of different kinds of sessions, I realized I really enjoyed family, couples, and senior photography the most. Since then I've invested in Family, Couple, and Senior Photography Education courses and shot hundreds of families & couples! I've designed my sessions to be quick and easy, with lots of silly prompts to get genuine smiles. My ideal family would be fun, silly, and able to let loose.

Hi there, I'm Sunshine!

First off - THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE! I'm so excited to "meet" you! 

I'm Sunshine (Yes, it's my real name) - a local Gatlinburg family photographer for joyful, adventurous, goofy, fun-seeking families.

I'm most at home in the mountains or in water, feel happiest around sunrise or sunset, and am completely obsessed with crocs, funky styles, and adventuring.

At my core - I'm multi-passionate and a true creative- (creating decor, Cricut crafts, ...and more crafts), and the hardest thing about what I do is choosing which one to do next! 

But the one thing that has stood the test of time is my deep love for photography - whenever the camera is in my hand I feel at home, and I cannot wait to tell YOUR story and meet you oh-so-soon!

Getting professional photos done doesn't have to be stressful.

That's why I've structured the way I do my sessions a certain way!

  • My sessions are fun and relaxed.
  • I provide my clients with a Custom Style Guide that takes out all the guesswork in coordinating outfits.
  • My sessions are all-inclusive; the price you pay includes everything!

Getting professional photos done can be easy, fun, and stress-free!

How my sessions are different:

My business isn't about pictures, it's about family. It's not about transactions, it's about relationships. It's about having a fun and relaxed photo session. One that has smiles, laughs, and goofy-ness.

I use prompts like "walk silly away from me" and "Tickle each other" to get my shots. The more relaxed during my session you are, the better. I know it can be intimidating and feel awkward being in front of a big camera, but I like to have fun and if anyone looks awkward, it's me turning, bending, and squatting to get your perfect shot. 

My editing style is bold, vibrant, and saturated.
