About

Who We Are

Sarah McAffry | Lead Photographer

Cassie Dunning | Studio Manager + Videographer

Peyton Baxter | Stylist

Kristen Davenport | Hair + Makeup Artist

Sarah started working as a full time photographer in 2009 after feeling nudging from the Lord to quit her job as a high school teacher. She was walking in obedience and God faithfully showed up and quickly turned her little side job into a booming full time career.

Sarah’s passion is photographing teens and women. The best part is is seeing their eyes light up when they see themselves for the first time. For some, it’s the very first time they have looked at themselves as beautiful.

We hear from teens and women that their photo shoot gave them a boost of confidence they will never forget.

Sarah has been published in national print and online publications such as: Senior Style Guide, Wedding Chicks, Weddings Unveiled, Grey Likes Weddings, Ruffled Blog, Baby Lifestyles and more.

 

Testimonials

 

“Sarah and her staff are incredible to work with. Very professional and responsive. We use Sarah for all of our agent head shots and branding photography.” – Justin Bailey, Bailey & Co. Real Estate

 

 

“Sarah wasamazing to work with. She took head shots for our daughter and even edited them quickly so we could order prints in time for her to take them to her college auditions. Her work is impeccable, and she made my daughter feel very comfortable during the process. Cassie was very helpful also as was the wonderful hair and make up lady (so sorry that I can’t remember her name, but she did an awesome job). I would go back in a heartbeat and do it again! 5 stars all the way!”  – Carol Burley, Annika’s Mom

 

 

“Sarah and her team are amazing! My shy & reserved daughter had her senior pictures done and Sarah brought her out of that comfort zone and created a beautiful, relaxed and fun photo session! Sarah’s work speaks for itself, hands down. She was upfront on everything including the price….nothing hidden, up front and honest. After viewing all the pictures, we purchased all of them! I will be recommending her to all my family and friends.” – Angela Bailey, Hope’s Mom

 

 

“First off, let me say Sarah is an ABSOLUTE miracle worker. I got my senior pictures done this summer, and let me tell you, it was amazing. Everything, from the makeup and hair to the ordering session to the pictures themselves, were nothing short of fabulous. I am a huge fan of Sarah’s genuine kindness and God-given talent; she is definitely something special. She truly made me feel beautiful, and it’s reflected in the amazing photographs we bought. No, she isn’t the cheapest option in the Knoxville area, but this experience is something I will treasure for the rest of my life, and it’s something I’ll definitely share with my kids in the future. Thank you to Sarah and Cassie for everything you do!!” – Kate Adkins, Senior
