Beautiful Summertime Johnson City Family Photos

Johnson City Family Photos at The Side Porch in Johnson City, Tennessee

You know how there are scratch and sniff stickers? I wish there was a “tap and hear” so you could listen to all the giggles that happened during this sweet family session at The Side Porch! Camille and Garrett are truly the most loving parents and their little boys are a living testament to that! They had so much fun throughout the session that it made taking photos a breeze!

Why did we choose The Side Porch for their session? Well, it’s funny you should ask! Camille and Garrett are actually a large part of the family that owns the venue and make it such a fabulous place! The Side Porch is a stunning wedding venue, but it also makes for stunning Johnson City family photos too! There are so many different locations scattered throughout the venue that you really could shoot there all day and not take the same photo twice!

For their Johnson City family photos at The Side Porch we chose to use the little creek nestled down by the woods. It’s such a perfect spot to keep cool in the midst of all the summer heat and it is the perfect place for little boys to run wild!

hi, i'm danielle—

In the past 10+ years as a Wedding & Portrait Photographer, I’ve found that, aside from arming myself with my cameras to catch swoon-worthy moments of my couples on their day, I’m also bringing a few other unexpected things. 

Like my tough love mom-voice that will keep your bridal party in check, my air of calm if you’re feeling overwhelmed, and the corniest jokes so no one has the jitters in front of the camera!

Because so much more goes into getting those gorgeous wedding photos than just hitting “click!”

and I'm not just bringing my camera to your big day.

Wanna know what you need for                        
detail photos?


In the hundreds of weddings I’ve photographed, I’ve created as many different flat lays as you can imagine. And so I’ve curated a complete list of must-have items for you to gather so your detail photos are even more special. For the free list, enter your email below:
