Sticks and Stones :: Xing at UT Gardens {Allan and Lisa Mueller | Knoxville Professional Photographers}

Allan and I had so much fun photographing adorable 3 1/2 year old Xing at UT Gardens. Her mom, Lisa, knows Allan and used to work with one of his sisters and, after reconnecting through Facebook, booked us to photograph her beautiful little girl while they were in Knoxville visiting family and friends.  Lisa was concerned that Xing would be too shy and it would not be easy for us to photograph her, so imagine our surprise when, 2 hours and four wardrobe changes later, we were all having a wonderful time and capturing lots of great shots. She was a bundle of energy and loved playing with the stones along the pathways and collected a bucketful, which we had to ceremoniously dump before leaving the Gardens and at one point found a rather fascinating stick to wield. Later, at lunch, she asked her mom, 'Where are my friends?'. When Lisa told told us this it made the session even more special.

A couple of days later we met with Xing, her parents and her grandmother for a viewing session before they headed back home and they all had a very hard time choosing their favorite images. Here are some of our favorites that really show how much fun we all had that day. Enjoy!
