World’s Fair Site Family Session

This family is a long-time client of mine as well as friends as well as fellow Shoreliners. We joined the life group they were in right before Olivia had their second son Sutton. Shortly after, our leader and his family moved to China to serve as missionaries, and Mitchell and Olivia took over as leaders of our group. We watched them welcome both Selah and Shepherd into their family. Then, we watched as Mitchell made a major career change to become the head honcho at Frazier’. They moved from Maryville into Knoxville, and it has been a true honor to walk alongside them for so many of these transitions.

Annual family photos have always been important to Olivia. She told Mitchell when they got married that this was a non-negotiable for her. She wanted to have updated family photos every year, and honestly, he is a great participant. Even their kids do really great and are getting used to this tradition at such an early age.

For this year, we met at World’s Fair Site and ventured around the different areas getting both posed and candids of their sweet family. It was tough to get Shep to smile, but I think we got a couple of him in there. Selah is the epitome of an only girl and keeps up with all her brothers like a champ. They showed off some of their climbing skills, fast running skills, and jumping skills. The energy this family brings to each session is the best. Of course, we always want to get a least one looking at the camera smiling, but Mitchell and Olivia do great with knowing that in this particular phase of life, a lot of their session is just going to be the kids running around having fun. Excited to share some highlights from this session as you scroll through!
