A Golden Knoxville Botanical Gardens Maternity Session

This couple attended my second annual small business workshop when it was at The Study Hall. I knew I recognized Jessica’s name when it came through my email, but I couldn’t quite place where I knew it from. Then, when we got out of the cars at their golden Knoxville Botanical Gardens maternity session, the feeling of recognition was even stronger. You know when you see someone out of context, and it’s hard to figure it out how you know them? Halfway through their session, they said, “We attended your small business workshop a few years ago, and now, Patrick owns his own business!” It finally dawned on me. That’s it! That’s how I know them! And I instantly felt so proud. What an amazing story to hear from a student years after my workshop. That’s what I dream of for each and every attendee. To experience the freedom, the confidence, and the flexibility in owning their own small business. Do they always go full time like Patrick did? No, not necessarily. Sometimes, their small business supplements income. Like when they want to be a stay at home parent or earn extra money on top of their full time job so they can enjoy extra vacations. It was so cool seeing it come full circle in this moment.

I had so much fun with Jess and Patrick at their golden Knoxville Botanical Gardens maternity session. The lighting was insane. Even after a day full of clouds. As the sun set, there was a little break in the clouds, and it popped out, which made all those fall colors even more extravagant! I’m so excited for this couple to be welcoming their first kiddo in just a few short weeks! It’s going to be one fun adventure!
