The Hensley Family | Dixie Stampede |Patriot Park | Pigeon Forge, TN Photographer

This was a very special session. I photographed this small family a year ago. So much has changed for them in just one year. One is now pregnant, the other just turned 18 and the oldest got engaged during our photo session.

We met up at the beautiful Dixie Stampede to take some christmas photos in front of their beautiful tree and christmas display. We started off with a group photo, then moved on to each couple

When I got to Taylor and her boyfriend, after we took their photos, he got down on one knee and asked for her hand in marriage. She stood there in complete shock!! The family cheered them on from behind.

We then drove down the road to Patriot Park. She now told the rest of the kids that as a surprise, one is getting some birthday pictures, the other is getting maternity photos and of course we took some of the newly engaged couple.
