Hi there!  I'm Sondra.  Welcome to Sondra Kay Photography.  
I can't wait to get to know you and your family! Here is a little bit about me.

Location:  West Knoxville

From: a teeny-tiny town smack dab in the middle of this great country {Alma, Nebraska}

My family: my husband, Mark and our kiddos . . . Taylor (19), Halle (14), Jordan (11), Anneliese (4) & Kate (1)

Occupation:  photographer since 2007, a 1st grade and preschool teacher before that . . . and a Mom all the time

Favorite song: JJ Heller playlist on my Amazon Prime (my babies love her and it seems to be our go-to playlist to wind down)

Favorite season: fall

What makes my heart smile:  coffee -- dark chocolate -- rainy days -- a second cup of coffee -- Hobby Lobby -- a glass of wine on my front porch with my hubby -- smell of a fireplace in the crisp outdoor fall and winter air -- hand-written cards and letters -- a brand new calendar planner -- cute cloth diapers on my baby's bum -- browsing a bookstore with my big kids 

I enjoy:  the quiet of the early morning -- scrapbooking and journaling stories for my children -- planning my kids' birthday parties -- writing in my planner -- rocking my baby

My dream for my clients:  It is my hope that the images and art that we create evoke a sense of joy when you see the images on your wall.  I hope that you can actually hear the laughter and the squeals of your children when you look at your photographs.  If you have an album or book from a documentary session, I hope that your children ask to "read" their book and that they can retell the story behind the images.  My personal images and memories become more valuable with time and I trust that yours will be as well.
