Cades Cove Maternity Session

 

A happy accident: that's exactly what Ashley's BEAUTIFUL Smoky Mountain maternity session was. This lovely lady had her heart set on beach maternity pictures while her little family was visiting Charleston, SC. Sadly, the weather had other plans and rained them out the entire week! She got in touch with me just as soon as she knew her original plans weren't going to be possible to get on my books. 

She had a vision of maternity pictures in the water, and it took some brainstorming on both of our parts to find the perfect location that would suit all of our needs. We settled on Cades Cove where we would have both a beautiful stream and the mountain views for her maternity session. Guess what happened on our first scheduled date? Rain! Of course it would rain us out on our first attempt. Thankfully, we pushed through, found a new date, and it was perfect for the session. It was cloudy the whole drive up, but the skies cleared just as we started. 

Maternity Pictures in Smoky Mountain Stream

I LOVE water pictures and the day was perfect for them. A beautifully warm July afternoon, where the water was cool and soothing on our feet as we waded out to the middle of the stream. Ashley looks so radiant and serene in water. While it's no beach, I adore the beauty the Smoky Mountains have to offer.

After the water, we headed out into the fields and road with Ashley in my Harlow maternity gown to take in that beautiful view! Cades Cove has amazing views in every direction, making it one of my very favorite spots.

Gatlinburg Photographers | Smoky Mountain Family Reunion Photographer | Smoky Mountain Anniversary

Family Photographer at Gatlinburg Cabin

 

Tracy and her beautiful family invited me to come out to their cabin to photograph her extended family in celebration of her Mother and Father-in-law's 50th anniversary. We absolutely lucked out that their Gatlinburg cabin sat just 10 steps from a grassy spot with a stunning view of the Smoky Mountains AND we had just enough shade to make perfect portraits with them never leaving sight of their home away from home. Tracy' father-in-law was in poor health, so it made these pictures extra special, and also made it a must that we be able to stick close by the cabin.

50th Anniversary and Reunion in Gatlinburg

What better way to spend your 50th anniversary than in the Smoky Mountains surrounded my a loving bunch of kids and grandkids. I know that's exactly where I'd like to be in 41 years. I have so many beautiful pictures of these two from before we started family pictures, it was hard to narrow down which to share! Seriously, forget celebrity relationships, I hope to be like these two years from now <3

Gatlinburg Family Photographer

The beautiful family was perfect for pictures! Being surrounded by family during these big sessions tends to really keep the big grins on their faces. There's always an uncle or grandpa willing to be silly with me to grab the best smiles! Extended family pictures are so, so, so important! In the end family is everything, so let's celebrate them.

gatlinburg-photographers-family-reunion-photography.jpg

This is one of my all-time favorite pictures! We asked all of their grandchildren to give them a big hug and it couldn't have turned out more perfectly!

This was one of the very last pictures I took at their session, when this sweet girl scooped up some bright yellow wildflowers, I snapped the picture. It sums up this session perfectly: beautiful and peaceful.

Family Pictures at the Island in Pigeon Forge

 

Meet the Sivestros! This spunky little family had the great idea to take their Smoky Mountain family pictures at The Island in Pigeon Forge during their vacation. I just love the fun-loving feeling this location lent to their images. 

If you're visiting the Pigeon Forge area, you should check it out! The Island is a cute little area with unique shopping, rides, and tasty, tasty food! It's a great way to spend the afternoon during your Smoky Mountain vacation with stuff to do for everyone. I need to make it back up there myself soon to check out the Paula Deen restraunt. 

It was a busy day at the Island, but we were able to make some great spots for family pictures! My personal favorite was probably the carousel; super cute! 

The fountains were a close second for a favorite spot! The way the water caught the light when it shot up, was just perfect for the background of their photos. So differnt and fun!

It took a bit of patience, waiting for people to pass to grab some of this cute spots, but it was so worth it in the end.

Gatlinburg Photographer | Cades Cove Family Pictures | Jamie's Family

Gatlinburg Family Photographer

 

Jamie's little family was so sweet! They were visiting Gatlinburg all the way from Michigan. We spent the afternoon exploring and playing in one of my very favorite spots on earth, Cades Cove. The littlest member started off a bit grumpy, having fallen asleep on the trip over from Gatlinburg, but after a few minutes to warm up, he was laughing, and playing, and showing his truly joyful little personality just like his sweet brother. Those two sweet boys seriously cracked me up!

Family photos while you're vacationing in Gatlinburg are so fun! You get these beautiful mountain views, and to enjoy the serenity around you. It's so peaceful and beautiful there, I sometimes just stop and enjoy the views for a few minutes after my sessions, and watch the sun completely set. 

Sometimes little ones ( haha, okay, most of the time) don't enjoy standing still and looking at the camera for those above the fireplace shots, so I love to mix in some tickling and playing fun for them. This next one was a mixture of tickling, and playing who can not smile the longest! Fun is KEY to a great family session.

Gatlinburg Child Photography

These two boys were amazing little characters! Seriously, we laughed and played through our poses (and silly faces). I adore their portraits; so cute! Their Mama picked out outfits that complimented their Smoky Mountain location beautifully.

Knoxville Photographer | Country Rustic Barn | Maternity Pictures

Knoxville Maternity Photographer

 

Jessica and Jeff's Knoxville maternity session was perfection! This is one of those sessions that just aligned perfectly despite an imperfect start. I normally scout out my own locations, but Jessica's awesome sister had an amazing venue just down the road from her, with a beautiful barn that graciously allowed us to use their property for a session. My GPS went haywire and directed me out to the middle of nowhere and Jessica's hair and makeup ran late, but it put us at the perfect time, with magical lighting. Everything happens for a reason, and this couldn't have been better.

Knoxville barn pictures

This location has the cutest barn, that is just beautiful! It made such an amazing backdrop for Jessica's pictures. She requested a country barn feel, and I know we captured just that. Even her sweet puppies got to join us in this stunning spot! I've always loved barns so this location was right up my alley. 

Grassy Field Knoxville Maternity Pictures

Along with the barn, the farm had the prettiest grassy fields, with gently rolling hills. I could've done the whole session right there, it was so beautiful. 

What is a farm without hay? Jessica's sister pointed out the bales off in the distance, and as soon as we saw them, we knew we needed pictures by them! Isn't she just the most beautiful Mama?

I cannot wait to meet their new addition in a few weeks in my Knoxville photography studio! So exciting!

Floral Newborn Pictures

The Grooms family brought their sweet girl to meet me last week. Her beautiful Mama requested lots of floral to represent this little girl's two grandmothers. I ADORE a good floral, so I was happy to make that a reality for Annalice's session. We used a wreath, flower blanket, and a floral beanbag backdrop, almost everything had something floral to it! I thoroughly enjoyed designing every set up for this family.

Annalice's Mama had one other request, a Princess and the Pea set-up for her princess. With short notice, I didn't have time to order props, but her awesome family stepped in to make it happen. Grandma lent us a ton of antique quilts, and her Dad made the darling ladder. I'm so glad we were able to make it a reality; it couldn't be more beautiful!

Next, we moved on to one of my very favorite parts; the beanbag poses! This is where all the cute, squishy pictures happen. Sweet girl did not disappoint! She let me cuddle and pose her into the sweetest pictures.

Finally, I wanted to end with the Grooms first family portrait in my Knoxville studio! They are such a gorgeous family with two beautiful children! Enjoy!

 

 

 

The Best Gatlinburg Souvenir is Family Pictures | PIgeon Forge and Gatlinburg Photographer

Smoky Mountain Photographer

 

This past week, a sweet client told me that the best souvenir they could think of from their Gatlinburg vacation was family pictures. She really couldn't be more right. I couldn't tell you what little trinkets that we've brought back from different vacations are still around. We've purchased t-shirts that soon have holes, magnets that fall of the fridge and get kicked around, jewelry for our girls that breaks within a few days, etc. 

On our vacation to California, I took along my tripod, and we took family pictures to document our kiddos first time on the beach. You know what? That family picture is still the largest canvas on my wall, that I walk by every single day. Four years later, and it's a beautiful memento of our trip, and my favorite family photo to date ( and trust me, we take a TON of family photos).

gatlinburg-family-photographer-sibling-picture.jpg

On your next Gatlinburg vacation, consider having family pictures taken while you're in town. The mountains surround you with natural beauty and make an amazing backdrop. I can promise you, those images will mean so much more than a whole trunk full of trinkets. Invest in your happy memories at this stage of your life.

I love babies! I mean, I really love these sweet babies that I get to work with. Little Lucy was such a sweetie <3. She came to visit me right in the middle of a baby boom! Five baby girls, all photographed within a ten day span in my Knoxville studio. Let's just say, even after five, sweet baby girls, I still haven't had enough of cuddling babies. 

As a special treat, Lucy's grandma got to come and watch her session, and might have even been volunteered to assist me in composite pose ( two images put together in photoshop for babies safety!). Grandma was so smitten with her; just beautiful! 

 

Awake Knoxville Newborn Pictures

Lucy decided that her Mommy would really love some beautiful newborn portraits with her eyes open. The sweet girl was so patient while I posed her, even wide awake; after a wiggle or two, she was such happy girl, looking right at the camera. That's so rare for newborns, and so beautiful!

Sweet girl fought sleep for a little while, but once she fell asleep, she was ASLEEP. We got to have so much fun with different props and poses. Lucy was amazing to transfer from my curved bench over to the beanbag for my classic newborn pictures. 

Posed Newborn Pictures

Newborns are best posed when deep asleep, although that doesn't mean you can't get beautiful awake image ( just go look above!); it allows you to get those squishy, adorable poses like these. 

I have such a hard time narrowing down newborn pictures for my blog! They're all so darling. Who could ever have enough of looking at this sweet face?

The lovely Fourmans came to Gatlinburg to celebrate their parents anniversary! Their children thought it would be a wonderful time to have the whole family's pictures taken by a Smoky Mountain photographer and celebrate their parents love. 

We dedicated some time to just the parents to show off their love and adoration for each other. After all, they're the reason everyone else was there. It's an amazing experience to watch two people still in love after so many years. Aren't they the cutest?

My job may have long hours, and rough roads, but sessions like this make it so worth it.

 

Of course, when everyone is in Gatlinburg at the same time, we HAVE to get a great shot of the whole good lookin' gang!

During these family sessions, I love to grab different groupings. Who knows when your next opportunity for a beautiful, professional picture with you father or neices and nephews will happen. 

gatlinburg-tn-photographer-family-reunion.jpg

Of course, we also have to have some fun during our Smoky Mountain photography session! What better than "Dabbing" and silly faces to get some real grins out of kiddos!

Gatlinburg Photographer | Surprise Proposal in the Smoky Mountains | Engagement Photographer

Gatlinburg Surprise Proposal

 

A few months back, Aaron contacted while planning a Gatlinburg vacation for him and his beautiful girlfriend. He wanted this vacation to be ultra- special with a surprise proposal in the Smoky Mountains with amazing views. I was thrilled to help him plan a time and location that would make for perfect pictures of the big moment.

Taylor was lead to believe they were doing a regular ol' portrait session on vacation, with lots of fun couple's poses. 

Me and Aaron and had arranged a pose to be the signal for him to get down on one knee during their Gatlinburg photo session and ask the biggest question!

She immediately said yes, and they shared the sweetest moments celebrating their very new engagement in pictures. What an amazing memory! It was incredibly thoughtful of Aaron to think of documenting this moment, Taylor is a lucky gal!

Pigeon Forge Photographer | Family Photographers in Smoky Mountains | The Carter Family

Pigeon Forge Family Photographer

 

Last week was quite a week! We've recently had some big storms roll through the Smoky Mountains, and it's caused us to lose quite a few trees, and caused a ton of traffic issues. The sweet Carter family got stuck right in the middle of fallen trees and blocked roads, with me already out of service. Sadly, we missed out entire scheduled session due to them not being able to reach the location. 

Luckily, they were awesome and trusted me to find a great new location. Even if it meant keeping their youngest sweet boy up way past his bedtime on the day before the headed home to Ohio. I'm SO glad they did, the results were fantastic!

Smoky Mountain Family Pictures

The Carters told me they love candid, unposed pictures, so we went for a great mixture of fun pictures, with a few posed ones thrown in for variety.

Smoky Mountain Children Portraits

If time allows, I love to grab some different groupings and individual pictures of little ones during a family session. Some of those small moments between parent and child are my favorites! A quick hug or kiss can make a stunning portrait.

Knoxville Newborn Photographer

 

I was so excited to meet sweet baby Wyatt! We did his Mommy's beautiful maternity pictures in Cade's Cove a few weeks ago, and I just knew he was going to be handsome, cherished little boy. He happened to be the very first baby to use my brand new Knoxville photography studio in Sequoyah Hills ( hopefully I'll have a post on that in the very near future). 

Little man did amazing through my posing and his wardrobe changes into all the darling little props. He was just a spicy during a few poses, but after he was wrapped, he was just perfect.

Police Officer Newborn Photos

Wyatt's Mom and Dad had some fabulous ideas they wanted to incorporate into their session to celebrate his Dad being a local police officer, and they turned out so sweet! We meshed some of our ideas together, and I couldn't be happier with the results, celebrating his Dad's career. I'm excited to share them with you guys!

Little man is already so proud of his Daddy! He gave the sweetest smile when we went to do this pose.

Meet Savannah! An absolutely gorgeous mom to be! This brave soul trusted me to lead her into one of current favorite location, a local grassy field, that is SO amazing right now with the wildflowers and blooming grass. The bugs were swarming, and the humidity high, but it was oh-so-worth it for these stunning Knoxville maternity pictures. 

Savannah mad great use of my rental maternity gowns, a complimentary service I offer to my clients and wore several of my beautiful dresses. Who wants to shop for an ill-fitting maternity outfit, when you can wear my custom ,comfy, designer gowns?

Her sweet baby is due over the summer, and highly anticipated. I know this beautiful Mama can't wait to meet her new addition. I hope they'll make their way to my Knoxville newborn studio for pictures!

Family Photographer in Knoxville | Knoxville Photographer | Grassy Field Session

Knoxville Family Photographer

Meet the Hull Five! This beautiful couple and their three stunning and beautifully behaved, children bravely handed over full creative control of their family picture session to me. I can't even begin to tell you how much fun we had. We played, romped through the tall Knoxville grass and laughed, and did just a wee bit of posing. Having fun during your session is a MUST. When everyone is more relaxed, it shines through your pictures. These guys had so many amazing ones, that I could hardly pick out just a few images for the blog. 

Fun Family Picture Poses

Fun family poses during your Knoxville photography session are just as important as those beautifully posed shots above your fireplace. They keep kids spirits up, and everyone interested and looking happy. I adore both types of pictures and tried to include both in the Hull's family session.

Family Photography

When booking family sessions, I encourage families to book at least an hour session, so we have time for some different groupings, and capturing sweet shots.  This first picture is one of my all time favorites. Those perfect pictures are sometimes the little in-between moments.  What a sweet, sweet little boy <3

Children's Portraits

I've never seen siblings love each other as much as these three! While I'm sure they have their moments at home, they did great in front of the camera, posing and playing together beautifully ( I'm not above a bit of bribery to ensure beautiful pictures *wink wink* and being able to hold my squeaky pig may have been promised).

Meet baby Bellamy! She's quite the little nugget who decided it was time to meet the world a few weeks early. We had a grand old time snuggling during her session to get those sweet, sweet newborn pictures while her her Mommy and Daddy had a few quiet minutes. 

Knoxville Newborn Studio

My bigger studio allows parents to grab a cup of coffee, kick up their feet, and relax while I take care of everything. Sweet babies are in great care during their session, and it allows parents to tick a few things off their to-do list, or just relax. 

Bellamy started off just a bit fussy, but quickly relaxed and gave us beautiful newborn pictures! She even threw us a smile! Her Mommy had requested a princess carriage set up for her little princess, and I'm happy to report that Bellamy rocked it!

Babies like her almost make me want another, but thankfully she gave me my fill of cuddles before heading home with her sweet parents. 

Check out just how gorgeous she is yourself!

Can I just take a moment to tell you how much I love repeat clients? Watching little ones grow up and families change is one of the biggest perks of my job. This beautiful family, I have had the pleasure of photographing for a year and a half. When Sarah told me she was pregnant, I was so excited for them, especially little Landon getting to be a big brother! Sarah's maternity session was magical, and Landon was such a patient, handsome little prince <3

*Super secret photographer tip* We did the must have toddler poses first, so little man could go play when his attention was used up.

Knoxville Maternity Clothes

One of the biggest challenged my mama's have for their maternity session is what to wear! I really want you to feel beautiful for your maternity session, and I know struggling with maternity clothes in Knoxville ( with our tiny selection of stores) does not make that easy. I have ordered over 40 custom maternity gowns exclusively for my clients, so you can feel your very best. Sarah was so kind as to model a few extras for me during her session, so I could show them off to you all. 

Check out her session!

How To Find the Perfect Fit among Knoxville Photographers

Knoxville TN Photographer

 

Are you muddling through page after page of Google results looking for a Knoxville photographer? Stop right here, grab a cup of coffee, and let me help. 

Let me start by saying that you have a TON of choices when it comes to Knoxville Photographers. Whether you choose to use me, or another photographer, the perfect fit is out there. Think of your search kind of like the Cinderella glass slipper; it has to be perfect right?

1. Love your Knoxville Photographer's Style

Find a photographer whose images you adore. I cannot stress this enough. Before you book with me, I want you to love my work, and be SO excited to have your own family photographed.  A good professional photographer will have a defined style, and you should see similarities in style across their images. Style isn't something that is easily changed, so make sure you love what you see; your finished product will look similar. When it comes to style, you may not be able to put your finger on the differences, but you know YOU best, so choose the photographer whose images you can't stop looking at. 

knoxville-family-photographer-candid-picture-smoky-mountains.jpg

2. Determine Your Budget and Save if Needed

Professional photographer are priced according to their skill level, and to cover professional overhead ( such as insurance, taxes, editing software, camera gear, etc). I know it might be sticker shock the first time you see a Knoxville photographer's packages ( I sure was sticker shocked years ago when I first started!). Don't settle! If budget is an issue, save for those pictures you really want. Many photographers offer payment plans as well, especially on time sensitive sessions like newborns. Personally, I'm happy to work with a client on budget to make their photography dreams a reality.

3. Contact Your Top Choice

Reach out to your favorite photographer. Feel free to ask questions, and let them know your thoughts on your shoot. I personally love to answer client questions and put their concerns to rest. I completely understand that you don't know the ins and outs of photography, and that's why you're hiring me. Photographers will have no problem answering your questions, chatting and planning your session with you. Once you're in contact, your photographer will guide you through the booking process. 

If you love my work, please feel free to reach out and chat with me. I will be happy to take some time to talk through your questions and concerns.

The Dempsey's Family Session

 

I love, love, LOVE repeat clients like the Dempsey family! A little over a year ago, their sweet girl was still in mama's belly when I met them for a maternity session. What a difference a year can make! That sweet bump is now a sweet one year old baby girl full of smiles. Her and her brother must be in competition for the most smiley child, and I think it's a tie!

Knoxville Family Photographer

I really do love watching families grow and change and look forward to your yearly portraits. It's great to catch up and play with those smiling faces. I also find little ones take a lot less time to warm up during repeat sessions, especially if their old enough to have saved up a year of chit chat for me. Life is just grand from their perspective; it's always a great time!

We were able to cram quite a bit in to the Dempsey's mini session, and while the posed pictures are gorgeous, I just love their candids! It really shows who they are as a family, and their love for their children. 

 

I can only imagine what this beautiful family will be up to in another year; I can't wait to hear all about it.

The lake! What a great place for pictures as the weather warms up. If you're looking for water for your session, the location I took Ashlee is my top choice! It's got a cute little beach, groves of trees, and the beautiful lake. It's absolutely perfect, and right in Knoxville!

Ashlee is a beautiful first time mommy who came to me for a maternity session, with her Mom and sister in tow for moral support. We had a great time exploring what Knoxville's The Cove park had to offer; so many great spots for Knoxville maternity pictures with a natural feel!

Ashlee modeled a few of my maternity gowns for me, and did so beautifully! This first one she wore is a fitted, lace pink maternity gown by Mii Estillo.

Who knew Knoxville had a beach for pictures? We stumbled upon the prettiest little lakefront beach spot at the Cove. The sand was so pretty we just had to take a few pictures there with Ashlee in the Faythe dress, a beautiful, flowing chiffon maternity gown.

Along with the water, the Cove has an amazing little forest of trees, that give a magical, fairytale look to any session. I love how the light filters through in my favorite spots; so gorgeous! It's a great backdrop for all kinds of sessions!
