Parker TWINS – 6 months |Chattanooga Childrens Photographer

You’ve seen this family on my blog just a few times in the last year and half.  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again… I JUST LOVE THEM!  Amber is one of those moms that makes it look easy, but doesn’t shy away from telling you that it’s hard!  Justin is one of the hardest working dads that I have seen!  Kerrigan is precious and the twins, Kennedi and Kershaw… well, these pictures are proof that they are just ADORABLE!!!  They’ve moved to Michigan, but made it back this way just in time for the twins’ 6 month milestone!  I’m scheduled to take their ONE YEAR pictures as well… and I CAN’T WAIT!!!



Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with God’s people and also members of his household.

Ephesians 2:19

Caitlin & Adam Engaged | Chattanooga Engagement Photographer

Couldn’t have had more fun with Caitlin and Adam down at Mountain Cove Farms for their engagement session!!  I am so excited for the November wedding at Patten Chapel in downtown Chattanooga!  Not only is the chapel stunning but Caitlin is going to be one beautiful bride!



Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.

Ephesians 5:25

Zeb’s First Day of K3!

This morning was so surreal!  My baby started K3 at Oakwood Christian Academy!  I can’t believe it.  Sure, it’s just 3 year old pre-school, but it feels like we tackled a huge milestone this morning.  The formal education journey has begun!  I’m already so proud of him I can’t stand it!  He didn’t even shed a tear.  As I inched closer to the door to leave he turned to look for me and realized I had moved and quickly reached out to me and said, “one more kiss and hug mommy!”  This is a normal occurrence every morning when I drop him off at his day sitter, but this morning those simple words brought tears to my eyes!  My baby is growing up!  Before I know it he will be starting his first day of his senior year in high school and THAT I am NOT ready for!

Dear Lord, I come to you this morning with such a daunting prayer but I know you can handle it!  Be with my baby!  Protect him!  Help him to soak in all the knowledge Ms. Lewis and OCA are going to instill in him!  Continue to mold him into a solid, strong, biblical, Christ seeking man!  Be with me as I begin this journey with him.  Help me to be the mom that you want me to be.  Help his daddy be the dad you want him to be.  Be with Neal and I through all the triumphs, trials and challenges we may face during his educational years.  Guide us, calm us, teach us and most importantly help us to guide him towards YOU each and every day!  I pray all this in your name!  Your loving daughter, Lanie


I’ve had such peace about sending Zeb to OCA.  But then this morning as I got Zeb out of the car and turned around…  I saw this wonder!  God is good, All The Time!  ALL THE TIME, GOD IS GOOD!




“To the angel of the church in Laodicea write: These are the words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the ruler of God’s creation. Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.

Revelation 3: 14, 20 

I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked of him.
1 Samuel 1:27

Kathy Riddle - Such a wonderful documentation of his “first” of many educational firsts. You are such an outstanding mother, Lanie! The fact you are a great photographer is a bonus!
