This isn’t my normal photography post, so you’ll have to bear with me if you were here looking for something else. However, I just couldn’t contain this and had to share with you all a little bit about how proud I am of my husband’s hard work!  He works with a company called New View Renovations and together with Jeff, Scott, Robert, Hayden, and John they have given this house new life.  I’ve got the before and  afters to prove it!

If your jaw didn’t just hit the floor… It should have.  New doors, new windows, new roof!

This is the entry way from the front door.

The kitchen remodel is insane.  Instead of there being three chopped up rooms, the living room, kitchen, and dining room now flow together creating a beautiful gathering place.  Oh.. and no more wood paneling.  :)

The crown molding and wood floors really help make the space open up and feel fresh.

Updated cabinets, updated appliances, and can lighting throughout.

This room used to be a garage turned storage area.  Now it is three separate rooms.  You will walk in to the mud room and can go left into the house or straight into the laundry room.  There is now a separate room for the pantry and it already has shelves installed!

And my favorite…  Bedroom #3 and the Master Bedroom combined as one!  Normally, I would be so sad about losing a bedroom.  You will find out later why I am a-okay with losing this space below.:)

This was the master bedroom and bath.  Small and quaint.  Now the entire space is the master bath with a separate shower and bath, a walk in closet, his and her vanities, and the toilet in a room by itself for more privacy.

As you can see in the photo on the bottom left, the hardwood floors run in the master bedroom as well.

Not pictured…  I have them, but not the intense before and afters like I do on the main level.  Oh yes, there is a whole other level to this home!  If you go downstairs you will find a mini kitchen with space for a family room or game room.  You will also find a full bath downstairs with an additional laundry hook-up, TWO more bedrooms, a media room, and a storage room.  The basement was not finished when they got the project – there were only a few stud walls up.  It is now complete!

This house went from 1770 sqft to 3780 sqft and is sitting on .80 acres.  It is a beautiful space for a family in need of additional bedrooms and main level master.

To learn more about this house or to request viewing, please contact Teresa Portwood.  She can be reached at 865-457-4110.

The past 3 years I have felt that there is more that I want to do for brides and grooms on their wedding day.  In the back of my mind it was a video highlight of their day, so if I had time and the resources, I would get small clips of video throughout the day.  Pairing those videos with the photography of the day just seemed like a perfect fit because the styles matched and I’m already there getting those must have shots.

It is a major transition to be able to offer video for brides and grooms from just photography because the mindset feels so different.  Here’s where fear enters in and the reason it has taken me 3 years of struggling with accepting the challenge.  To also have short glimpses of the feelings and emotions of one of the biggest days of their lives is something that I know if I could go back to my wedding day I would want one, too!!!

Fear #1 ::  The Learning Curve
Learning how to use my camera to create video pieces I want AND the software to edit those clips.  HUGE learning curve.  However, in true Jenn Brown fashion, I am jumping in feet first and creating.  Sometimes it’s frustrating and other times I’m so excited I can’t even see straight.

Fear #2 ::  Would anyone actually want the video?
If they have a professional photographer on their wedding day, would they even care to have a video highlight??  The last wedding that I had some video clips made throughout the day was at Bailey and Anthony’s Great Smoky Mountain Wedding.  She had opted for full day coverage, so I knew that there would be plenty of time for short setups throughout the day.  I decided it was the PERFECT opportunity to try it and see what I could do with the video when wedding season slowed down.  As I was going through bits and pieces of their day piecing the moments together, tears would swell in my eyes as I imagined what it would be like for them to see clips of each other getting ready…  The parts of the day that they didn’t get to spend together and probably wondered what the other was doing.  Anthony wasn’t there to watch Bailey’s mom and dad help her put on her wedding dress.  Bailey wasn’t there to see Anthony helping his dad get ready.  I knew I had something special for them both.

Here is Bailey and Anthony’s Wedding Short Film!

Isn’t Almost Heaven Resort and Weddings gorgeous??

Baby fever.  That’s what hits a momma who’s littlest has began walking and now counting to three.  It isn’t that this momma wants a new baby.  No, I just want to turn back time and hold my tiny baby.  Especially the oldest.  What I wouldn’t give to be able to go back and hug that little boy while he tries to hug me back but hugs my head instead.

While Jace is still in “tiny” stage, Wade is entering the stage where he is too grown to do “baby” things… unless he doesn’t feel well or he is in trouble.  You can see his age come out every once in a while when he gives me a crinkle nose smile or needs a hug.   And even though his head now reaches my shoulders and he is just a tad too smart for his own good, I have to remind myself that he is only 6 and still my baby boy.

Then I get to go and document the sweet, sweet moments of having a newborn in the house.  Those quiet and slow times where everything revolves around learning this new person who has entered your family.  Inevitably, tears sting this momma’s eyes every time because I remember those precious moments where the only place that makes a baby happy is laying on his momma’s chest or those 2 am feedings that you can barely open your eyes for, but wouldn’t trade for the whole world.  Time sweeps by and all these things seem like a life time ago and all that is left are images that will pull you right back to that moment.

I couldn’t resist sharing this image of Baby Ramsey’s Lifestyle Newborn Session.  I love this so much and know this will be an image they will cherish for many, many years to come!

Video is making a huge impact on how I capture small moments in my family’s lives and I am so excited to add this division to the Jenn Brown offerings!  And yes, brides, wedding video shorts are available, too, for new bookings!  But in the meantime… here are the oldest cousins on my side of the family  enjoying a little Easter egg coloring action.:)

I cannot wait to watch this next year to see how much they have grown!!!

After a glimpse of spring, I’m sitting here at my desk in a comfy oversized sweat shirt and fuzzy socks listening to the rain beat against the window.  I’m thank for the rain.  Really I am, but right now all I can do is daydream of warm sunny days.  In the meantime, I’ll take in this sweet engagement session.  :)

Ladies and Gentlemen… my nephews!!!!!  It isn’t every day that I get to see these cuties, so we seized the opportunity to update their family photos during my Spring Minis!

Little attention spans don’t last long which makes mini sessions PERFECT for toddlers!  But we had to get a full family portrait!:)

Another sweet family from the Spring Minis held a week ago!  I can’t believe they traveled an hour and a half just to take part!!!!  This was my first time meeting little Tyler. He reminded me so much of my Jace.  Too cute!

Lately I’ve been feeling a pull to do something a little different.  Something a little more raw.  Something that lets us relive glimpses of our lives.  I wanted to not only go back and see my babies as they are now, but to watch them if for but a second as they are now.  What they love to do, how they are together, and their personalities right at this moment.  Because as all of us know, they change so fast.

It hit me one night as we were watching iPhone videos of my oldest busting out his infamous dance moves.  We as a family absolutely love sitting down and watching those 1-2 minute videos of him and would have wet eyes listening to his sweet voice explaining the wonders of life as a 3 year old knows it.  Sean and I cherish our iPhone video vault so much!  I want to bottle that up and create a short film for clients that matches the quality of their images.  I want to go beyond the iPhone and create a memory vault for MY clients so they can sit on the couch wet eyed and laugh at the wonder of their little ones who are no longer little.

Who says we can’t stop time and rewind.  I’ve got 1 minute and 10 seconds that I can relive over and over.  And it never gets old.

 

 

This Saturday, I’ve got ONE Lifestyle Short Film session available!  It is a lifestyle session at your home centered around Easter preparations (think cookie decorating or dying Easter Eggs!!!) that includes stills, but (a first for me!!!) also a film of the event!  The collection includes 2 hour session, 25 images, and a *short film of the family fun!   Cost of the Easter Lifestyle Session is only $350!
*Short films are only 2-3 minutes long

If you are interested in booking, please use the contact button above or email me at jennifer@jennbrownphoto.com – I cannot wait!!!
