Who doesn’t love visiting the Smokies and spending some time in our Smoky Mountains? This family got together to spend a few days making memories. They chose to have their photo session out on the Motor Nature Trail way up high in the mountains. They got a bonus for picking this area. We saw 3 baby cubs and mama bear on our drive up. That never gets old.

My first stop on the Motor Nature Trail is the beautiful mountain overlook. We didn’t have many people or crowds to fight, so that worked out great!

Once you go down the trail for a few miles you come across this beautiful river and a couple of cabins in a field. It is a great stop along the way.

He was so funny! Once he warmed up to me, I think he started to show some fun personality expressions.


Thank you guys so much for choosing me to take your family photos. I hope you had a great time and I didn’t make it to painful 😉 Enjoy your photos! Hope to see you soon!
