Lenz Photography of Knoxville is proud to present Emma Grace with her Boa Imperator, Shibari, and reticulated python, Kronos. Lately, we’ve been working hard to install some turf behind our studio in order to shoot athletes with a home field advantage. Before we cleared off the tons kudzu that was taking over our backyard, we thought it’d be cool to do a themed shoot. We’ve known Emma for several years through jiu jitsu, so we figured there wasn’t a better way to commemorate the overgrown jungle by throwing some snakes in the mix. Emma has owned snakes since high school, where she would keep them by “hiding them in her room”. Kronos is 1.5 years old, and Shibari is 5 years old. Now we know many people have a fear of snakes, but these snakes were actually very tame. We’re glad that Emma was down to model for us, and we’re very excited to see how athletes look using a similar set up once the turf is complete. Last but not least, a big thanks also goes to Brandon for helping out during the shoot and filming some behind the scenes footage. TEXT ICONIC TO 24587 FOR BOOKING INFORMATION. Knoxville […]
Lenz Photography is proud to present newlyweds Lata and Sujan. The following is a tribute from the Lenz’s to the newlyweds Lata and Sujan: Lata has been a friend of the Lenz’s ever since we collectively met at Carson Newman College in 2011. However, Alexandra and Lata have known each other for over 17 years – dating all the way back to their days of playing clarinet at high school band camp. Lata has been a great friend over the years. We have shared countless laughs and wild adventures. Lata was even a huge part of our elopement in Washington D.C. back in 2016. Although we have had tons of fun, one thing that we have to credit Lata with is being one of the hardest workers whom we have the privilege of calling a friend. She is incredibly studious and holds herself to a high standard. As a matter of fact, Lata just recently received her Doctorate in Statistics from Virginia Tech. A little bit of backstory for insight; Lata and Sujan met in April of 2019. They quickly hit it off, and got engaged on October 12th. Now, it is popular in Indian culture to have an auspicious […]

Former college athlete and current WNBF Pro bodybuilder. I am a Strength Coach and Personal Trainer. However, beyond that, I am a believer in people. I am not only passionate about seeing people reach their physical goals, but also walking alongside people to break their mental barriers and self-made limitations. I have not always been passionate about fitness, but as sports injuries have changed my career focus, fitness has shown me that my limitations are self-made. That being said, I am adamant about giving that same mind set to others. Still Life Fitness is not only a name, instead it reflects that no matter what you have been through or dealt with in life thus far it is not the end. Our family here knows that as long as you STILL have LIFE we can make the rest of your life the best of your life. Darryl Eubanks II
Lenz Photography, LLC of Knoxville is proud to present personal trainer Daryl Eubanks II. We've known Darryl from all the way back to our days at Carson Newman University, where we were all music majors. Our first shoot of Daryl was when he played football for the Eagles back in 2012. Nowadays, Daryl is still involved with football, but his main focus is personal training and competing in fitness competitions. Daryl currently trains at The Hangar in Chattanooga, and we must say that it's one of the coolest place to workout and to photograph on-location! The following excerpt comes from Darryl's official bio: Former college athlete and current WNBF Pro bodybuilder. I am a Strength Coach and Personal Trainer.

Lenz Photography, LLC of Knoxville is proud to present Grainger County High School 2020 Senior Athlete, Jace Maxey. Jace pitched for the Grainger Grizzlies Baseball team and was All District for the Blue Ridge Athletic Conference last year and 2nd Team All State. In the Fall, Jace will attend Walters State Community College where he will pitch for the Senators Baseball Team. Jace's senior session was a blast. We enjoyed including the entire family in a few shots, as well as Jace's baseball coach, Jace's car and Jason's Jeep. Grainger High School has an awesome view, so it's always enjoyable to shoot sessions there from beginning to end. We even concluded Jace's portrait session by including the grizzly bear in front of the school.
Lenz Photography, LLC of Knoxville is proud to present South College 2020 Graduate April Frost.
April graduated from South College with her Associate of Science in Teaching. She was accepted into the Bachelor of Elementary Education Program starting summer 2020.
The Lenz’ actually had the opportunity to photograph April’s daughter, Katelyn, for her 13th birthday a few year’s ago. Ironically, we photographed April on her own birthday this time around! We were glad to share a few hours together creating some graduation/birthday portraits of April, and we were glad that her husband Kevin got to be a part of the session, as well!
Congratulations to April on her recent success, and Happy (belated) Birthday!
Lenz Photography, LLC of Knoxville is proud to present 2020 Senior Wyatt Johnston of Morristown Hamblen High School East. Wyatt graduated as the Salutatorian of his class with Honor’s and Distinction. Last summer, he attended Governor’s School for the Arts studying film. Wyatt also graduated high school with 33 hours of college credit from dual enrollment and AP classes. He plans on finishing at WSCC and transferring to ETSU. Wyatt's session took place in front of Morristown East High School where we were able to capture a few portraits in front of the building. One of our favorite moments was photographing Wyatt in his parking spot where the 2020 Seniors were able to add a touch of creativity by painting their own designs. After leaving the school, we headed to Downtown Morristown to capture a few more portraits of Wyatt. A few of you may also recognize Wyatt's sister, Sadie from her recent dance sessions. The brother and sister duo were even cool enough to do a photo recreation, which we had to include in the blog! The Lenz' would like the think Wyatt for being such a great sport during the session. We're glad that we were able to photograph him, and amazed at his many accomplishments!
Lenz Photography, LLC of Knoxville is proud to present Karns High School 2020 Senior Athlete, Ethan Narro. Ethan (17) is a Blue Belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and was the Captain of the Karns Wrestling Team. "From mat to mat nothing changes. The will to win always stays the same." Ethan's dad, Frank, left us with that quote, and we can confirm firsthand that Ethan is a hardworking, determined athlete. The Lenz' have both rolled with Ethan at Gracie Barra Knoxville several times over the last few years, so we've been able to see his progression. To put in modestly, Ethan is a scary matchup for anyone! Many of you know, that when you train a martial art like jiu jitsu, your rolling partners become your family. I'm not too proud to admit that I personally stepped in as a body for Ethan to perform some takedowns on during his set, and Alexandra photographed me getting dropped like a sack of potatoes! The Lenz' are proud to train with a great athlete such as Ethan, and even more thankful to have had the opportunity to create some Iconic Portraits in honor of his high school career. Even if we did almost get banned from the parking garage for taking professional photos, we're thankful that Monica, Frank, Adrianne, and Ethan all were able to join us. And we're also thankful to Joseph Watson, & Jonathon and Jenna Knight of Maryville Jiu Jitsu for allowing us to use the gym for Ethan's portraits.
Lenz Photography, LLC of Knoxville is proud to present Jalynn Blevins. Competing in pageants may be new for Jalynn, however, that hasn't stop her from having success. As a matter of fact, Jalynn was recently named Miss Hamblen County, and she is planning on competing for Miss Infinity in the near future. Depending on how she places in the Miss Infinity pageant, that could lead Jalynn to competing for the title of Miss Tennessee! Normally, when we blog a set like this we ask for a list of accomplishments from our subject. Jalynn was pretty humble in her response, but we think that says a lot about her level of maturity. We actually photographed cheerleading portraits of Jalynn many years ago, so it's awesome to see her becoming an amazing, talented young adult! We wish Jalynn success in everything she hopes to accomplish, and we'll be rooting for her the entire journey!
Lenz Photography, LLC of Knoxville is proud to present Junior Class of 2021 Madison Harvey.
The last several years have been a great experience working with the athletes at Washburn High School. During our team sessions, we’ve photographed Madison’s talents numerous times for the Pirates Cheerleading and Softball.
Obviously, the students of 2020 missed out on a lot of events that would have occurred during the Spring Semester such as prom. And although we didn’t show up with our own personal DJ, Madison decided to team up with the Lenz’ to commemorate the event by having her own environmental fashion shoot that looks like it’s straight from a fairytale! Luckily, Madison was a junior this year, so there is still hope for many senior festivities for the Class of 2021.
On the bright side, Madison is a natural in front of the camera and she had an amazing dress for the shoot. This set will forever be one of our favorites, and we look forward to shooting more Senior Portraits of her in the near future!
Lenz Photography, LLC of Knoxville is proud to present Junior Class of 2021 Sadie Johnston.
We have photographed a few dance sessions of Sadie over the years, so we knew she would be a perfect candidate to photograph during our limited Spring Special at Baxter Gardens. In this session, we photographed portraits of Sadie in her prom dress as well as her signature dance portraits.
If you missed Sadie’s last session you can see the Full Set here.
Sadie is an upcoming Senior Class of 2021. She is a very talented young lady, and we wish her the best going into her Senior year!
Enjoy these 48 ICONIC PORTRAITS OF DANCER SADIE JOHNSTON, and let us know which one is your favorite shot!
