the bailey family. || gatlinburg family photographer

it was a chance encounter, meeting the bailey family. i was on my way out from a shoot at the dream more resort where they happened to have just arrived for a family vacation. i drove back to  dream more later that week to capture their family a few hours before they would return home. the boys played corn hole, looked for bugs, and each told their favorite jokes.

a few days later, rachel messaged me saying, "it was a god thing putting you there that day for us to cross paths, you managed to capture the essence of our family." what a special reminder as to why i chose to tell stories. this is the bailey family.
