Tellico Plains Family Session

This sweet family has been coming to me since their first son, Luke, was born. Now we are celebrating their second son Gabe's sitter session! Mama wanted us to meet at Gabe's great-GREAT-grandmother's home in Tellico Plains, TN. The family owns a huge swath of the countryside there, and it's been home to generations of their family.

The family home is nestled in rolling hills of Tennessee, protected from winter winds and summer sun by the gorgeous, mature trees that surround it. A gravel drive winds its way up from the street to the house, welcoming visitors. The home made the perfect backdrop for these family photos, becoming almost its own person, possessing its own identity, and representing those family members who have passed or couldn't be with us that day.

Four generations, gathered together on their ancestral lands. Look at Gabe- a laughing baby starfish on his grandfather's lap.
